Balloon Fight for the NES was ported to the Wii as part of the Virtual Console service. It was available on the Wii Shop Channel for 5000 points (5$).
Since the game is more or less directly emulating the original game, there are very few differences. At any time, you can press the home button on your controller to bring up the usual menu, although doing so in a Virtual Console game also adds the option to reset the game.
- This game was featured as part of a challenge on the show Game Center CX, and the episode when this was played featured Satoru Iwata as a guest. In the episode, both the show's host and Iwata played Balloon Trip mode and attempted to get 20 Balloons in a row.
- If this game was transferred up to or bought on the Wii Menu of a Wii U, then the Wii U Virtual Console version of Balloon Fight could be bought for one dollar.
