From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of current and upcoming Virtual Console games that are available on Wii U in North America. These games are native to the Wii U Virtual Console and take advantage of Wii U's unique features, such as Off TV Play with the Wii U GamePad and posting to Miiverse. Some of these games may already be available on Virtual Console for Wii, which can be played through Wii U's Wii Mode, but these versions do not include Miiverse connectivity. While Wii Mode Virtual Console titles cannot be played using the Wii U GamePad's controls, a September 2013 system update enabled the use of the GamePad's screen as a display.

The games are sorted by system and in the order they were added in Nintendo eShop for Wii U. To sort by other columns, click the corresponding icon in the header row.
