The Wii U GamePad won’t be supporting Wii games Nintendo has revealed.
For a while now, rumours have circulated that the Wii U GamePad will support Wii games from WiiWare and transferred from Virtual Console. Instead, these games will have to be played on a Television through the “Wii Mode” setting. According to Nintendo, the mode will enable the Wii U to play like the Wii thus disabling GamePad functionality.
However, Satoru Iwata has revealed plans to include a Virtual Console for the Wii U that’ll feature GamePad support.
