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.

I tried doing that, unfortunately it takes me to the wii u eshop.

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.
