I looking for help getting my virtual console games from my Wii to Wii U. I already did a console transfer so to play them I have to enter the Wii menu on my Wii U. I was under the impression that you can somehow shift them to the main Wii U menu. Anybody able to do this? Thank you.

Wii titles only run in the Wii shell on the WiiU. If you have the game on your Wii shell then you can get a discounted version of it when it gets to the WiiU Virtual Console. Not very much is on there at the moment, which kind of sucks.

You cannot "shift" them to the main menu, unfortunately. All your Wii VC games stay in Wii mode.

What you can do is buy the same games you have on Wii VC again at a greatly reduced price when they become available on Wii U eShop. They cost about a dollar, give or take.

It sucks. But it's better than nothing.
