Super Metroid is the only one on there that you listed.

However, if you want to use the Wii's Virtual Console, you can get all of those except for Illusion of Gaia and Master Quest.

Just remember that the Gamepad and Pro controller don't work on "Wii Mode." You'll need a Wii Remote and Classic Controller.

Confusing, I know. I hope Nintendo makes things simpler in the future.

If you have an HDTV, I suggest switching to 480p and 4:3 so the games are displayed properly (unless you actually like fake widescreen, and I don't see how anyone can).

Actually, it's not that confusing. Let me explain.

The Wii.... doesn't support Wii U controllers.

Repeat after me....

The Wii and the Wii U are different consoles. Therefore, the Wii does not support anything that is specifically designed for the Wii U.

Wii U games, Wii U Pro Controller, Wii U GamePad don't work on the Wii Mode because....

*drum roll*

They don't work on the Wii. The Wii "mode" or "Wii Menu" is just a Wii (without GameCube support), it is NOT, as many people stupidly assume, a "Wii Menu, with the added compatibility with Wii U software or hardware".
Gentlemen, we tnodah now!
