Wii U: Virtual Console Questions

#1GreenMan1986Posted 2/6/2013 6:04:27 PM
Can someone answer these. I haven't been following the Wii U very close:

-When will the Virtual Console be available?
-Has it been confirmed you can play all games on the Wii Pad?
-This 6-month deal (one game a month for $0.30): Does that mean the VC won't be up until summer?

One other question:

-Can you use the Wii Pad to play Wii games?

Thanks in advance.

It will be available in "spring". That's what Nintendo said so it's all we know.

Not all games that are available on the Wii VC will be available on the Wii U VC at launch. They are launching with NES and SNES only and even then it will only be a subset of those games.

Games play on the gamepad and on other controllers. Buy the $0.30 "Balloon Fight" to see how it will work.

No, you cannot use the GamePad to play Wii games.

They told us this over six months ago.
