Video Issues with Virtual Console Games in Wii Mode

Are there black bars or flickering colors that appear around the game image on the sides of the television screen?

  • This is a result of the way in which larger TVs, particularly widescreen TVs, process the image. The images would also appear if you had the original NES connected to your television. Although there is not a way to adjust this image to reduce the effect, the game is still playable.
