Paper Mario heading to Virtual Console

N64 classic is Wii-bound, reports US mag Nintendo Power

According to the latest issue of US Nintendo Power, the original N64 version of Paper Mario will be arriving on the Wii's Virtual Console soon.

The official mag lists the Mario RPG as its 'top pick' from upcoming virtual console games, so we can pretty much take that as confirmation that it's not far off from release in North America.

In case you didn't know, the Paper Mario series also spawned a GameCube sequel and Super Paper Mario is due on Wii soon. You can read our hands-on impressions of that here.
