Wii u virtual console questions

So I just got my wii u. I understand that it is just being released. Any idea if/when games like the original final fantasy and Zelda: link to the past will be released? Or links to where this info can be found? I appreciate any help

go to Wii mode and use the shop there for all your VC needs.

You could also wait for those games to be brought out on the Wii U eShop as well (all the ones on the Wii VC are being ported, I believe). From what I've heard, it means you can play those games on the GamePad itself (which is awesome, in my opinion).

No-one knows when those titles are coming to the Wii U specifically, though, so if there's games you really want to play, get them on the Wii eShop.

They are buyable on the old Wii Shop, available in Wii mode. The only thing is:

1. You need an orignal Wii classic controller combined with a Wii remote to play (the Wii U Pro controller, or the gamepad itself arent usable.)

2. Later the games should be brought into the new Wii U shop and you'll have to pay an extra buck to transfer them over- but this will make them playable on the gamepad.

All I know is, is they are releasing a NES game each month, during each month that game will only cost 30 cents, 30p, etc. The offer at the moment is Balloon Fight which ends on the 21st of this month. On the 20th, F-Zero will get the same offer, etc.

Not sure what is happening after that, but they are probably going to start releasing other games as well.
