So if I get Paper Mario on CN...

#1trenton97Posted 2/11/2013 3:39:48 PM
Can I download it on my WiiU? I know the VC isn't exactly up to snuff and was unsure of the complications, if any, that could arise.

Answers?

Thanks in advance.

The only VC game on the Wii U shop right now is Balloon Fight.

So no...you cannot get Paper Mario on the Wii U eShop. You would have to go into the Wii subsection of your Wii U and redeem Paper Mario on the Wii Shopping Channel found on the Wii Channel of your Wii U.

My understanding is that you can play any Wii VC games on the Wii U's VC if you pay a fee of like $1 or $2.

You only have to pay to get VC games to play on the pad and other Wii U stuff. You can still for free have Wii VC games boot up in Wii mode on your Wii U as long as you bought the game already. People need to stop with misinformation if they don't know what is going on.

Which is what I said.

You don't have to at all.

They will boot up in Wii mode just fine and play like they did on the Wii.

Right, but without the fee, you're not playing on the Wii U, you're playing on the Wii U's Wii Emulator.

Wii U doesn't even have a VC yet... When it does get one there will be a small fee to take advantage of Wii U specific features, but you are never required to pay to play Wii VC games you've already downloaded..
