If it does then I might buy a Wii U.

If you have a decent TV, no. With Wii scaling was done by the TV. With Wii U, it's done by the console.

I never did play Skyward Sword on the Wii, but I played some of it last night on my Wii U and it looked bad. I'm sure it wouldn't look vastly different on the Wii, but it couldn't have looked worse. It was still fun, though.

It wont physically increase the actual resolution the game has, so if it is a bit blurry-looking on the original system, the change wont happen on Wii U using the Wii Software. What it does is makes sure every software promotes to a progressive display, even for the small collection of ones that didn't previously support 480p from the Wii. This time, even those games won't switch your TV to 480i mode, or require it.

It also upscales so that the game to 1080p so that it is properly taking up the same physical screen-space so the TV can still run at 1080p mode.
