I posted in the Nintendo forums but it might be relevant to post my question here.
Can the Wii U handle all Nintendo Club wii games? Basically can I buy Paper Mario and install it on my Wii U?
For some reason I thought the Wii U was lacking the virtual console and all the other stuff the wii had. Am I wrong about this?
You can purchase or redeem points for Wii virtual console games on the Wii U. You just enter Wii mode when starting your system, then go to the Nintendo Channel like you would on a regular Wii. I added Mario Kart 64 last month without any issues.
