My uncle who works at Nintendo said to me, they have things planned out but nothing is confirmed yet.

Never minding the little fact that the Wii VC is technically already available on Wii U I'm going to say yes, the large majority of games plus more with Wii U specific features will probably be built up over the life span of the console.

Just give it some time.

Every VC game is already available on Wii U as others have said.
As far as Wii U specific it's still pretty pathetic and will probably never have the amount of games added to the regular Wii shop. We still don't even know if they'll add Genesis, Turbografx, N64 or even Gamecube games. Good luck waiting around for the next 5 or more years.

Didn't they say GBA games would eventually come to Wii U? What happened with that huh?
Still curious why those shouldn't come to 3DS instead.

It already is, in Wii Mode. But if you mean to play them in Wii U Mode, it's not going to happen for a long time.

I transferred all the games on my Wii over to the the Wii u. But as for your question, in time Nintendo will have more games on the Wii U's VC then the Wii's.

You're pretty optimistic.
