Nintendo "Moving Ahead" With Wii U Virtual Console, GamePad-Only Play Coming

Posted on Wednesday, January 9 @ 10:43:17 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


When you want to access the Virtual Console on the Wii U, it will currently take you to the dated interface of Nintendo's last generation console. What's worse is that none of the games take advantage of the GamePad. 

Fortunately, that all will change in the (near) future when Nintendo updates the Wii U with a proper Virtual Console that takes advantage of the hardware's capabilities.

A rep from Nintendo of America told Kotaku, “We do not have any specifics to share at this time. However, we are moving ahead with development of Virtual Console for Wii U, and we plan to make it so you can play it on the Wii U GamePad alone.”

I don't know about you, but the idea of kicking back anywhere in my house to play Super Mario RPG on the GamePad sounds downright incredible. Now all we need is confirmed GameCube support and I'll be sold.
