I'm waiting until we have confirmation that we don't have to re-purchase games already bought on the Wii before I get excited about anything...

Metroid Zero Mission and Super Metroid are some of the finest 2D games ever made and are the best in the series.
Metroid Fusion is pretty cool I guess.

I would like to move all of my downloaded games off of the Wii mode and have them conveniently located with all of my other Wii U downloaded games. And yeah, Gamepad functionality would be great, I don't have a classic controller to play my SNES and N64 games with.

If they could get this working for Wii games it would be the bomb. Gamepad-only play is awesome.

Of course, this means the Gamepad would have to be able to report itself as a classic controller from the perspective of the system in Wii mode, or something like that, and not all games would work.

Exactly. Then we might also have the benefit of Pro Controller use as well.
Additionally, I hope the Pro controller will be able to act as a classic controller for wii games.
