Virtual Console Question (Wii Version to Wii-u)?

#1aphoniamutePosted 7/13/2014 8:06:47 AM
Has Nintendo ever said if they plan to convert the Wii only virtual console releases to the Wii-U version so that we can just play with the Wii-U controller (and not having to go into the Wii mode)?

I hate having to go into Wii Mode and then come back out of it when I want to switch to something else. I see some games have been converted, but I would like to see some of the other titles I've purchased upgraded to Wii-U.

They have been converting.

The problem is, they're doing it game by game. And extremely slowly. and only NES and SNES.

So if I wait it out, eventually they'll get to my games you think? Or you think non-top selling games may never get converted?

What games specifically are you waiting for? Because Nintendo is unpredictable with the VC.

Mainly RPG games I noticed are the ones that haven't been converted.

Secret of Mana
Shining in the Darkness
Phantasy Star II
Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen
Chrono Trigger
Paper Mario
Super Mario RPG - Legend of the Seven Stars

You may never see some or most or any of them on the wii u vc. Nintendo is painfully slow with the vc and its very clearly not any sort of priority for them.

After 1.5 years it only has a small fraction of the wii vc games, which makes 0 sense to me.

@Tenchi UK: Those Square games are already on the virtual console for Wii. They just need to be converted to Wii-U.

Actually most of those listed titles wouln't be Nintendo's fault. That would be 3rd party issues.
