Can N64 VC games be played on the Wii U through the Wii or something then?


Go into Wii mode and you have access to all VC games released on Wii. They don't support Off-TV mode though.

Edit:

And they don't have the new VC features such as button mapping and save states.

It's nice to have options, but really, some people need to learn to move on. If Wii 2 U has GameCube controller support.....I don't even know what to think anymore....



First a Gameboy Advance "player" and now a GC controller adapter. Yup, it's Gamecube 2.0 alright.



why does it have 2 USB cords?

Memory card slot on rear? I mean the WiiU only lacks GC controller and MemoryCard ports other than that It can play GC games.

Well, they kinda support Off-TV since you can display Wii mode on the Gamepad. Though it's more like the Gamepad being a TV I guess.

Even if the next system supports GC controllers (which it very well may, considering that it uses USB) I fail to see any issues with it. It's just an option after all. If you don't want to use it you won't have to. I'd personally love to see more retro adapters so I can play VC games using NES/SNES/N64/etc. controllers.



sure, when the ps4 comes out with ps2 controller ports..... same line of thinking. if its true i will burn an effigy of iwata.

Oh, that's right. But the pad only works as a screen so you also have to use a Wii controller (unless Nintendo changed that behind my back).



Dat Smash logo though! So epic

Yes, it's nice to have, but many people seem to have a prejudice idea that the GC controller is and always will be the best controller for any Smash, when they haven't even tried using Wii U's controllers yet for Smash IV. I'm not against options, but it's just strange how people just don't even wanna consider a different controller.
