VC on Wii U (never owned the first wii)

#1SergeFiloPosted 11/18/2012 9:06:25 PM
I am curious to know if it is possible to download or purchase the classic nes titles from the old wii vc on the wii u? I never owned an original wii so I couldn't transfer the games. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You can purchase Wii Virtual Console titles by going into Wii Mode on Wii U.

No click on Wii Menu. You have to have a WiiMote though which is why I haven't used it. Sucks.

If you have the term "Official ___ of the __ board" in your signature, you probably hate yourself and don't realize you can't cosplay on boards. GTFO!

I bought the pro control, which the right analog stick moves the cursor. I'm able to enter and navigate the menu but I don't see the wii shop, any hint of an eshop takes me to the wii u eshop. Sigh..

Do you see an icon for Wii Mode? Click on that.

It'll reset the system and load up the original Wii interface. There should be a Wii Shop Channel you can use to access the old stuff.

So does the pro controller work with Wii games and with games on the Virtual Console?

So I was able to log in a me purchase games from the wii store. Now the question is, how do I transfer those files to my external hdd since the block space seems very limited on the console. Keep in mind I never owned the original wii.
