According to a new rumor which seems to come from the latest issue of UK video game publication Retro Gamer, Nintendo will offer GameCube games on the Wii U via the new Wii U Virtual Console. Over the past few months, Nintendo has been repeatedly asked about the GameCube situation on the Wii U, but never confirmed anything. Nintendo did mention something back at E3 2011 about playing GameCube games on the Wii U, but this has since been retracted by the company. But there is some hope on the horizon: Nintendo’s Reggie Fils-Aime said that he would “love to see GameCube games on the Wii U“, however, he added the usual PR lingo “…but we have nothing to announce”. Nintendo will offer N64, NES, and SNES titles on the Wii U via the eShop and Virtual Console. Wii games will be playable as well, with full backwards compatibility of original Wii game discs. It seems like a no-brainer to add GameCube games to the selection. Retro Gamer is likely making an educated guess — and we’d make the same guess and say that Nintendo will offer GameCube games on the Wii U as downloads some time in the future. The list of quality GameCube titles, especially Nintendo first party games, is impressive to say the least. Furthermore, GameCube games top out at 1.5 GB, which isn’t that bad for a downloadable game — Wii U games on the eShop will be much bigger than that. Source local_offer GameCube Nintendo virtual console wii u stars Further Reading Nintendo Switch to have GameCube games on Vir F-Zero X gets updated on Wii U to fix control New Zelda Breath of the Wild trailer and game Super Mario Maker Wii U vs 3DS comparison (vi Get Ocarina of Time on 3DS for only $14 New teaser site for Zelda: Breath of the Wild released HyperSonicN1 Quadruple rainbow incoming! just nin10do i so love gamecube games on wii U its awesome BLACK OPS 2? i love sonic games on the Gamecube this is great!! AKA-Link77 Im pretty sure Nin will do this. They probably retracted the clues to save the surprise. And Theres a great chance for GC cuz Nin usually has VC/backward compatible for the current console from -at least- 1 or 2 gens back. For example: Wii had N64 (2 gens back). 3DS will have GBA (2 gens back). Ambassadors like me all ready have 10 GBA games tho. 😀 DS Lite had GBA slot. GBColor had GB backward compatibility. Get the picture? 😉 😀 AwesomeNES The main game I would be waiting for on GC would be Super Smash Bro Melee. But for some reason, I’d rather play Super Mario RPG Legend of the Sevens Stars on SNES. That game was awesome. WaterDjinn Nintendo never announced GBA games for the eShop on the 3DS. They only released those for ambassadors so pretty bad logic there. Although I agree they will probably release GC games on the Wii U down the road but who knows, even though a lot of people want GBA games, they still haven’t officially announced it =( Aaron Barton The only problem with Melee is the lack of GCN controller ports. Personally, I think that controller fit the game perfectly and the pro controller will be hard pressed to work as well. Not to mention the fact that they run $50 each while we have superior gamepads from ten years ago. I hope and pray a USB adapter is possible, even if just third party. The Wii U has plenty of USB ports, but they will have to specify it in the software that they can be used for controllers for it to work. Wii had the advantage of GCN ports and that made adapters possible for N64, SNES, etc that just converted the presses into the GCN signals the Wii expected. Do the USB ports expect any type of game pad? Hmm. SteampunkJedi Sorry for my bluntness, but what is that supposed to mean? EponaVsCrimsonLoftwing I believe it’s a reference to the guy on YouTube who saw a double rainbow and was just like “woah, double rainbow all the way” like it was the best thing ever. So this is even better, is what hypersonic was saying, I believe SteampunkJedi That’s what I guessed. And I’ve never seen that video, but it’s in the pocket god app. 🙂 HyperSonicN1 Rainbows are the best things created by God, they have an unlimited amount of beautifulness and when they are double they’re tearjerking and I need some more sleep SteampunkJedi Thank you for the explanation. And yes, rainbows are beautiful. Walter White You know, you could have replaced “beautifulness” with just beauty and saved yourself the trouble of typing seven extra letters. Just Saiyan. TeaRzOfTheFallen Saiyan-iseewutudidthere -_-? Asiancake I think GameCube titles will make the wii u more boss Elite Borderlands 2 reference or gay reference? Elite Borderlands 2 reference i assume? Except 3 rainbows this time…. RoboticLink I want to see Zelda Wind Waker, Metroid Prime, Zelda collecter’s edition, Need for speed most wanted and SSB Melee. Who’s with me! 3rd.Disciple MUST!!! HAPPEN!!! Grant Potter I thought that this had long been confirmed to already be planned? Nintendo is da best It has, which is why this article is useless NINTENDOCOOL yea it was. i thought i was the only one…. dubYA A Nintendo “confirmed” it off the cuff. Reggie then said they have nothing to confirm. His word carries more weight, so for now Gamecube games on Wii U are sadly unconfirmed until someone proves otherwise. TheBoldman67 That’s exactly what I thought. Alienfish Gamepad designer: Umm, Iwata, we kinda forgot to include pressure sensitive triggers in the Gamepad. Iwata: Oh, that’s okay, we’ll just announce a new peripheral when we decide to put Gamecube titles on the eShop. Gamepad designer: But, won’t that alienate some people from actually buying the games? Iwata: Noooooo, nooooo… By the way, you’re fired. Johny lool xD … but… itsnt it so that the gamepad DOES have trigger shoulder buttons ? xdlugia It does have trigger shoulder buttons yes, but not sensetive triggers. They’re nothing more than Circle pad Pro buttons. Nintenlord I think the back are buttons are analogue, if not why call them triggers? Kahhhhyle They’re not analogue… That’s already been confirmed. theBALLANCEDopinion Could this be a sign that perhaps Nintendo will release wireless GC controllers for the Wii U? transaxle Great idea but highly unlikely since they’ve already come out with the Gamepad Pro. Would still be amazing nonetheless… For the dreamers check the transaxle sorry.. typo’d Dreamers can check the mockup at: http://cdn2-b.examiner.com/sites/default/files/styles/image_full_width_scaled/hash/da/5e/da5e378e3f8b3d996bcf7b3b5fc93a0b.jpeg AnesthesiaGamer It’s tough to say non-nintendo fanfare here but I completely agree. I’m actually worried. My gamecube controllers (which I use religiously to play smash) are nearing the end of their life. What will I use then? – And how are we going to play some of the games that used this funcitonality effectively. (Melee was actually one of them as the shield you used was different depending on how hard you pressed) and some FPS games changed the level of zoom. EponaVsCrimsonLoftwing The games that depend on the triggers won’t make it through. Until they release an anologue pro controller, then maybe eventually Ninjafish Mario Sunshine. If you didn’t push it all the way in, you could walk and shoot water. 🙂 PACMAN since the gamepad has bumpers and triggers. just use use the bumpers as pushing halfway triggers all the way or vice versa. Its that simple. The gamepad has many opportunities of adapting gc. games if you just think about it. Jeffery02 Are pressure sensitive triggers ever really needed? The only time I ever used them was the weak shield in Super Smash Bros. Melee and even then I didn’t ever need them. Ben In Double Dash you make a sharper turn when you press them completely. Thats all i know 😛 xdlugia It’s todays standard for racing games since sensetive triggers works just like real gas and brake pedals. alex for play virtual games on wii you need a classic controler so on wii u for gamecube you may ne need the pro contoler. dont you think so dont come with that crap of an add on just cuse the 3ds circle pad…look sony no ps2 at all out of the box or the 360 just 40% of the xbox game play and you need the hdd so what is your point? Alienfish My point is the obvious exclusion of gradual input. NoPUNintendo Maybe you can use the Pro Controller for gamecube games… Alienfish I don’t know why I’ve gotten all this hate. Oh, yeah, that’s right, this is a Nintendo fansite where anything negative about the new console is absolute taboo. Screw that, I’m being a realist. Don’t get me wrong though, this is probably the only thing wrong with the WiiU that I can think of, so I’ll get over it. I won’t, however, be able to play Gamecube games properly without PRESSURE SENSITIVE TRIGGERS!!! Racing games will be limited to two speeds: pedal to the metal and, well, not. Luigi’s Mansion and Mario Sunshine also use the triggers to regulate pressure in their respective launchers (Luigi’s Mansion had an extra burst when the button was pressed at the bottom of the trigger). I’ll admit, there may be a way to mitigate this problem using motion controls or some other method, but unless they reconfigure every GCN game that utilizes the pressure sensitivity (which is basically all of them), they won’t be able to release them, simple as that. So don’t throw away that old Gamecube or original Wii model just yet, because those older games might just not be playable on this new system. PACMAN Look at my earlier post and see if this is still a valid conclusion. Armani WOW!!! Im soo excited! I could have all Smash bros games in one console!:D and MARIO PARTY!!!:D OH MY GOD!!!! hahaha Mario Party 1-9,Super smsh Bros! The GLORY!!! I LOVE NINTENDO!!:D That Guy That Comments I like the way you comment plus if you and your pals play that much mario party only 1 will be left alive SteampunkJedi I would love to be able to download GameCube games to the Wii U. It would be very convenient, and I don’t have a GameCube nor a GC controller to use with the Wii, so I would appreciate that. Nintenlord Also they dont have to be on launch, i have so much snes to buy and n64 to catch on and i dont have much money SteampunkJedi Good point. Same here. 🙂 Nintedward . Hate to rub salt in your wounds , but I have a HUGE gamecube collection 🙂 . Well its only 24 games but they are the absolout elite games on the console . Tales of symphonia , mint = £60=80 , Skies of arcadia , mint = £40-60 , Windwaker limited edition = £50-100 , PSO episode 1 and 2 = £30-60 LOZ collectors edition = £40-60 , F-zero GX -£20-40 and most of the others are worth about £10 plus 🙂 I used to have way more GC games , but I sold them or gave them away. Only the very best remain in my possesion! I would re download them ALL in a flash if they were made in HD!!!! and you could play them on the gamepad . SteampunkJedi They’re not wounds. And I can wait for GameCube games. I don’t see why they wouldn’t have them downloadable on the Wii U. RoboticLink @nintedward. I am a huge zelda fan so when I read Wind Waker “special edition” it really caught my eye. What is it? SteampunkJedi It says “limited edition” but could mean something similar to special edition. Xblade13 I think it was the one that came with Ocarina of Time Master Quest. But I could be wrong about that Shane No offence Nintenward, but people seliing the games for that much is ridiculous. Maybe it’s different in UK, but It’s easy as hell to get all those games anyway(in the U.S.). It’s just better to be able to download them for a better version, convenience, and playing more than we should fo a game that costed less than what people are selling it for. I had ALL the games for ALL the Nintendo systems. I had all the available consoles and their slimmed down versions, including the NES top-loader W/ the dogbone controller, wireless controllers, zapper, and the REST of it. Power pad, power glove, everything. Earthbound= I played it ONCE, and it was great, but I literally got to the point where I mastered it and had to practically give it a way because no one wants to buy games for $70 LOCALLY. When you’re in person and trying to sell stuff, and you say a ridiculous price, NO ONE WILL BUY IT. I already know that ALL the old games will made available on the online shop, because it is imminent, and have known that since Wii came out, and seeing the history now, they always wanted us to be able to play the older games. Like someone else said, “GB to GBC(not a big jump), to GBA(bigger jump), DS(little jump again for ONLY GBA), 3DS(All those, but in enhanced digital forms), now we just need the DS remakes, otherwise everyone is doomed. HAHA. JK, but seriously, it’s gonna happen. All the re-releases in digital form are superior in terms of quality, without the game switching(physically, besides button pressing), better resolutions, better sound quality, all with better PRICE. Oh ya, the games they re-release digitally are the way they originally intented. Did you know that? Do you remember the Starfox 64 update on Wii? They lowered the framerate on certain parts the way they originally were on N64. I played it before the update because my friend had it, and when I got to REALLY FAST parts, I though, ‘WTH? I though it was slower than that…’, because I got my ass kicked immediatly, and thought that something was different. Update came out, slowed down. Hero Of Time Look, I used to have fifty… or more, but I counted once and it was near 60, but I sold them off for Wii games, and now have about fiftyish as well, so don’t get cocky dude. Plus, I had Wind Waker and the Special Collector’s GCN games, Double Dash, Sunshine, Mansion, NFS: HP, Harry Potter 2, Nemo, and a whole lot of other games! eli but you have an original game you still have to pay for it : ( eli *if Axe Or… Ya know, you could just play it on your gamecube or Wii. You`re not forced to rebuy it. ViceGrip Dear Nintendo, If this happens, I will love you forever. Love, ViceGrip and millions of other fans Felipe Garcia YES PLEASE GAMES LIKE STAR FOX ASSAULT , THE LEGEND OF ZELDA, DOUBLE DASH… THE LIST GOES ON AND ON.. SO GLAD I PREORDER MINE AT BEST BUY Amherst Henshin-a-go-go, baby! CubeClubKiddy is that a Viewtiful Joe reference? i liked it anyway! NintendoWizard87 Sounds realistic considering the GC controller ports are now gone. Fingers crossed for the ability to play these games on the gamepad itself! I want to sail the high seas of Wind Waker whilst lying in bed! Also, it would great to start seeing some improvements to the older games i.e. HD versions as the Xbox 360 and PS3 have done. Mario sunshine would look stunning in HD as well as many many other games!!! Armani Super Mario 64 in HD 😀 or James Bond Golden Eye in HD! With normalcontrollers, and same storyline, no new motion or nada! haha Hatake86 I hope that i can use my GameCube`s disc`s on wii u. I have over 30 gamecubes games 😀 Armani No you cant 🙁 only Wii games, no gamecube at all. BLACK OPS 2? YOU CANT but you can download them for 6 bucks 😀 Swic11 You can’t, the U is only backwards compatible with Wii games Mac you cant the wii u isnt backwards compatible with gamecube games t_vo no go buddy. Gamecube discs “confirmed” as not compatible. Wii discs are the only backward compatible games that work with the wii U. Just hang on to your wii/gamecube to play the 30 games you have. Hero Of Time Wow… I will keep my trap shut while the other dogs holler. It is definitely you who is getting whipped here, but still… wow…. XD Zeldazero IMO it would be well worth it for them to remake wireless gamecube controllers for the Wii U and even Nintendo 64 just for retro gaming. I just want one thing, every Mario Party game on my Wii U. The gamecube versions were the best 🙂 Then wouldnt need my Wii to stay hooked up as well. Ryu No Hadouken I still dont understand why people wanna play old games on new systems…my gamecube still works…if i wanna play it, ill turn it on. Sora1990 If the implement what NintendoWizard said about being able to play the game on the gamepad, that would be awesome. Mac so they don’t have to do what you do and hook up a system just to play one game when you can just use one system to play that one system that is more up to date Swic11 For me its the hassle of hookinh them up for only an evening to tow then go back to the closet for storage, I have every Nintendo system still buti don’t simply have the space for them to all be hooked up at the same time. And it looks like crap when they are too Xblade13 Not everyone has the older systems to play it on. Or, like me, the old system doesn’t work anymore (my Wii doesn’t read disks anymore, and I don’t have a Gamecube, so no more Wind Waker or Sunshine for me 🙁 ) I’ll be able to play my Wii games on Wii U, but unless I get a Gamecube, I can’t play those games. I hope they release Gamecube games on the Virtual Console. I’m willing to pay for Wind Waker and Sunshine again to play them, and also get games that I missed, like Pikmin 1/2, Super Smash Bros. Melee, etc. Especially if I can play them on the gamepad while lying in bed, or sitting on the toilet. 😀 EponaVsCrimsonLoftwing They already rereleased pikmin 1/2 on the Wii. As Wii games they won’t get Wii U digital ports. Probably not at least. Same goes for metroid prime. I never got around to those and I’d love to be able to play them like that, cause I don’t have the Wii versions, but with the rereleased motion control versions, doubt Wii U will get them. Wii backwards compatible after all Hero Of Time Didn’t release 2 here in USA, dude, but I would probably see the CoD GCN games coming back, along with the RE games and F Zero Volcano I really think it will have gamecube games for download. and i pray that the game should be in hd! but one question since cube games top at one gig dont you think the download will be long esp if it were to be in hd? anyway i cant wait! EponaVsCrimsonLoftwing We’ll be able to download full Wii U games. Those will go up to nearly 25 gigs. It may take a while to load, but nothing compared to the Wii U games Johny wasnt this confirmed some time ago ? Shane Ya it was… When the GameCube CAME OUT! hahahaha. NintendoGamer Resident Evil 4 on Wii U! nintendoododo gamecube only have 3 fantastic games. Sa2b, Pmttyd and sms. All the others are shit. WiiUnov18 @nintendoododo man but your forget metroid and zelda games and resident evil games and many more so sorry your way off Swic11 Eternal darkness = badass, so I don’t know what your deal is Wils81 …Resident Evil 4? …Smash Bros Melee? …TimeSplitters 2? …Animal Crossing? …F Zero: GX? …Pikmin 1 & 2? …Metroid Prime 1& 2? Holy shit man, let’s not get carried away… The Wolfen Dude there’s whole many Gamecube games that are awesome.. -_- Nintenlord Vieutifull joe? Medal of honor european assault Resident evil series Nba street Capcom vs snk Star wars series And many others i dont remember Nintenlord I remember,megaman x collection Custom robot Beyond good and evil Prince of persia series Lord of the rings series Gobling comander Battalion wars And i can name more but i don recall them now Nintedward . Wind waker , F-zero , Eternal Darkness , Skies of arcadia , Tales of symphonia , Luigis mansion Wave race , 1080 snowboarding , Animal crossing , Mario sunshine , Mario kart double dash , Lost kingdoms , Starfox adventures , starfox assault , Mario golf , mario tennis , Star wars rogue squadron 2 and 3 , Super monkey ball , pikmin 1 and 2 , soul caliber 2 with link , kirby’s air ride , Smash bros melee , PSO epsiode 1 and 2 , PSO episode 3 , sonic adventure 2 battle and sonic DX . and many many others . Note many others are listed by others above . Gamecube is one of the best and most underated consoles in existence. nintendoododo i wrote super mario sunshine(=sms) are you retarded? And that is my opinion. All zelda games sucks in my opinion except 2d zeldas. And metroid prime is horrible. I played metroid prime 2 and it was so boring. Nintedward Shut up . What are you a troll ??? I was replying to Nintenlord . You obviously have no clue what so ever about gaming if you think the gamecube had no good games . NUFF SAID . Nintenlord Dont be so hard on the kid edward he just started in gaming NintendoYOU Why the hell did you have to abbreviate everything? Took me way to long to figure out thousand year door…. lazy Lusunup Dream come true no more scratched games and i can play classics. The first I am getting is super smash bros melee kingtendo i would like to play some gamecube game’s on the fearless.why couldnt they make the fearless read gamecube game’s?i dont think that i will be downloading any gc game’s because i still have a gamecube and a wii. i think the gamecube game’s wil be available on the fearless around may or july. ”FEAR THE FEARLESS” NINTENDO Hero Of Time Dude, you know you can drop lisps when you talk online, right? Starfoxguy Come on Nintendo. I know the gamecube wasn’t the best system but there were a lot of good games for it. I would love to play Super Mario Sunshine and Wind Waker again. SHE’S SO HOT same here,i dont think i will need to download any gc game’s because i still have a wii also. cant wait to play the fearless nov.18th…………cant wait ,caint wait ncv144 i hope that you will be able to download gamecube games from their discs, because i have well over 30 gamecube discs and am not willing to pay for them again. BLACK OPS 2? :\ 🙂 😀 BLACK OPS 2? :\ 🙂 😀 wow can’t wait till the Wii U comes out NINTY64 THE FEARLESS WILL HAVE PLENTY OF DOWNLOAD CONTENT,ONLY QUESTION IS WHEN WILL IT BE READY FOR DOWNLOAD. Nintenlord Virtual console will be avilable day 1 theBALLANCEDopinion I want Sonic Adventure 2 on my Wii U so i can relive my childhood. GUN’S AND SWORDS cant wait to get my hand’s on that fearless. XENAJA CANT WAIT. Yamiryuu Zero I hope we can transfer our save datas using the SD card on the Wii to Wii U. I maxed my Wayu/Mia in every stat except resistance (Fire Emblem Souen no Kiseki/Path of Radiance) and I don’t want to lose my efforts! YOSHI i like that new name you guy’s are giving it.the nintendo fearless sound’s pretty damn cool to me. that’s what i will call it from now on. Ledreppe I hope this happens, cause I’be been looking for an excuse (opportunity) to finally play Super Mario Sunshine. Your mom I need the wind waker that’s why I want this to happen The Wolfen Wind waker please! I never played it, I can’t believe I missed it long ago when that game came out! Xblade13 Get it ASAP! It’s a great game, one of the best in the series! Also, the way the art style is, it almost seems HD anyway. The frame rate also rarely ever dipped for me, and the only time it takes more than a second to load is entering a cave/dungeon/some houses. The entire overworld, which is bigger than Twilight Princess’s (I think) is one conjoined sea. No between-area loading. Plus the story is amazing and surprisingly mature. And the controls are seamless, though for first time players it does take some getting used to having 2 action buttons, A and R. I highly recommend it! Jetty Hopefully we can play those VC games on the GamePad. Metroidslayer They better be ported in hd. ssb4 FC3007 8585 6950 On my birthday and half birthday every year, i will have a smash bros tournament where me and my friends will play SSB64, SSBM, SSBB, and SSB4. that will be so AWESOME> also looking forward to wind waker and Resident Evil 4. Pikmin 1 and 2 are also must gets, both games were excellent and Pikmin 3 looks simply astonishing! Bacon Epic! Gamcube is my favorite console… maybe the Wii u will take its place? 😀 ssb4 FC3007 8585 6950 gamecube didnt sell well though, PS2 beat it. we dont want sony winnin, we want them to lose. all microsoft has is the generic FPS that we all love but CoD and GoW seems similar to me.

Xeia Guys guys…come on…guys…. Buying GCN games on WiiU… Guys… What if you could transfer them to the 3DS with CPP attachment…guys… Take your GCN games on the go… Guys I can’t be the only one who sees this. Nintedward . Gamecube games were built on a completely different architecture to the 3ds’s . Its not simple , they need reworking and manipulating to be able to put on the 3ds . Monster Hunter tri g /ultimate proves the 3ds can handle wii games in 3d , so I dont see why it caln’t have gamecube games^_^ . But its never as easy as you think Dan So will all of them look sharp in my HDTV or crap blurry looking? KENNY nintendo should have named it the fearless,iv been using that name for the console also. people have been looking at me like,what the hell is he talking about lol. ”fear the fearless” NINTENDO Master Awesomeness super mario sunshine! Knotan Upscaled Mario Party 6 7 8 on WiiU…… DAYUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hero Of Time 8 is on Wii… no more coffee for you dude, or lay off the Red Bull. nucima Would be nice, If I could scan the game/disc that I own and then download it for free :D. Tyler Hopefully we’ll see GameCube games on the Virtual Console. Mario Superstar Baseball doesn’t work for me anymore and I really want to play it. Trev Do we know for sure that the game pad and/or pro controller doesn’t have pressure sensitive buttons? Do we know how many games used the pressure sensitive feature, I remember Mario sunshine did but I don’t recall others at the moment. Wii U Gamer#19 Man” i hope we get Mario Parties 1 & 3 on Wii U VC cuz we never got them on Wii only MP2, also nintendo cannot use the Excuse “Oh we got sued for the controls so were not going to release mp1 on Wii U VC sorry” that to me is just a load of crap” they could of easily put MP1 on Wii and specially MP3 cuz it had no flaws, also the Wii Classic Controller/Pro/GC Controllers would of never of gave the player blisters cuz of there rubber padding but the n64 controller never had padding” which caused blisters, so i hope this time we get MP1 & MP3 on Wii U VC. Wii U Gamer#19 Please Nintendo” give an old nintendo fan/Mario Party Nerd MPs 1 & 3 on Wii U 🙁 crazyheed Wuzaah sposed to meen James Who cares, I prefer having my original hard copies of gamecube games EponaVsCrimsonLoftwing Everyone who wants games that they missed or got broken. I missed Zelda Wind Waker for example. Finding that now, for an affordable price, is ridiculous. Older games that were hard copy only have skyrocketed in price, since the number of new copies is virtually non-existent and the old ones all have wear into them, or in the case of gameboy games, the memory card battery can be almost completely depleted. So the games virtually don’t exist anymore for people who don’t already have them. Hence, virtual console. Also good for if your old systems or controllers don’t work anymore. I only have 2 working N64 controllers left and 2 gamecube that I bought over the summer, cause the rest of mine broke. Does that answer your question well enough? Elite Still have my hard copies. Wont lie if they could get these games emulated to upres i would consider. hyperkitty It would be nice if Nintendo released a HD version of Zelda Wind Waker *Drools. But the GC games would be SD.See how it goes. Kirbymon123 Will… will I have to re-buy Kirby: Air Ride, again? ssb4 FC3007 8585 6950 yes sadly 🙁 Nintendo Fan Forever That brings me to a new idea…maybe we can scan the barcode with the WiiU camera? roedburn I certainly hope so. I could finally get the chance to play Wind Waker! Sikora I certainly hope so. Zelda four Swords Adventures would fit perfectly for the WiiU’s Controller. Raymond DOUBLE DASH!!!!!!!!!!! Kahhhhyle See we should really be able to use our gamecube discs… This is the kind of thing I expect from Microsoft and Sony. Then again I guess we did get our wii games so we don’t have to re buy EVERYTHING lol Nintedward . No , just no . Get out of here troll . Hero Of Time Dude, he is just joking around; if you think it is bad that he is just implying that Microsoft and Sony are worse, and you’re name is Nintedward, then you need some right in your wrong man. joesatmoes the only console ive ever owned is a wii (which im selling 4 the Wii U). it is awesome, but i never had a gamecube game on it. Im glad i didnt- now i can anyway just get them on the Wii U- and possibly even use the gamepad to play them! im sorry to those who do have gc games, cuz u probably sold ur gc to get a wii, and now u wanna sell ur wii 4 a wii u, but u dont know what to do with ur gc games. Sikora nope. I still kept my gamecube when i got the wii U. I play the gamecube more than my ps3, such a wonderful console… with friends.

CodyTanner It was also for Gamecube as well. xdlugia Okay, there is some misunderstandings here, but let me just make this thing clear: THE ONLY COMPATIBLE CONTROLLER WITH SENSETIVE SHOULDER BUTTONS IS THE Wii CLASSIC CONTROLLER (not pro). Gamechemist8 I really hope they do bring Gamecube games to the Wii U. It would be fun to play Luigi’s Mansion and Double Dash again, and it would be awesome for those who haven’t played them yet to get this chance KINGTENDO dont sweat it,somone will hack the fearless and find a way for it to play gamecube games. Nintendo Fan Forever so…do we get Melee, Brawl, 64, AND the new Super Smash Bros.? MUST. BUY. SideScreamer So. This article is just to repost an already existing one? Was it a slow fucking day on Wii U Daily? Again? Enigma How bout some Dreamcast and Saturn too 😀 Domo Dreamcast will be perfect Grodus WARNING: The following is a false rant. Non-belief is advised. Is you crazy!? Might as well throws in Monopoly if we’re doing this! Your insane! Picture it: “Anyone up for Sega exclusive games on my Wii U?” Even boards game are a gooder idea than this, AS MENTION BEFORE! *Falls and random murmurs* ——————————————- That was stupid. Great idea, anyway! By the way, incorrect grammar intended. BROWN LOG ON THE FIRE This is why it’s not going to play GameCube games. Lost potential revenue. Which is fine , but it would be nice if it upscaled wii games too. podge79 Rogue squadron baby…plz plz plz. Oh and i know it wont but i wish my gamecube wavebird was compatible. Ah well, cant have it all. Rogue squadron baby Kevin White I would rather pay for selected HD Remakes personally. Bring something enhanced to the table. Take advantage of the higher resolution and the Gamepad. But maybe we’ll get both. Maybe VC early and HD later. Maybe both as a dual pricing strategy. Maybe HD for AAA titles and VC for lesser titles. dubYA The picture in the article = Ninception MujuraNoKamen They better put some GC stuff on VC. We can’t run GC discs on Wii U so the only way to play GC game is through E-Shop. And they cant just neglect the console that gave us Metroid Prime 1 & 2, Pikmin 1 & 2, Zelda: The Wind Waker, and Smash Bros Melee to name a few. In fact I still need to play Paper Mario: TTYD and Melee, please Nintendo PLEASE MAKE IT HAPPEN! SSJ3Randroid4.8 I really hope this happens because having Gamecube games would be awesome on the Wii U. People won’t have buy a Gamecube just to play the system’s games. Fingers Crossed Reali-tGlitch Metroid Prime 1 & 2, Mario Kart DD, Super Mario Sunshine, Super Monkey Ball 1 & 2, Super Smash Bros. Melee, And to top it all off: Geist. With online play. I would really love to see Geist come back. TeaRzOfTheFallen Paper Mario The Thousand Year Door,Metroid Prime 1 &2,Pokemon Colosseum TLoZ:Wind Waker, Starfox Adventures/Assault ETC ETC Cannot wait for confirmation Shane ALL GAMES WILL BE THERE. DON’T PANIC! AHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Seriously though. They wouldn’t tease us and then not do it. Besides, like everyone has said, we either have broken old games, they’re currently breaking, we know they can break, and people intentionally break them too… Anyway you put it, it’s better re-releasing them, for the fact that it’s broke, lost, people haven’t been able to play them, or people have played them and enjoy the better audio and visuals. It doesn’t hurt to re-release them unless no one will buy them, but people want to and they know that. I’m gonna buy every game I think is worth the most to me. I’m not the type to play every single game, especially if it doesn’t interest me or it’s not fun. GB cartridges are like $10 on the street like a drug, so I don’t think that making them $3-5 is bad. Especially since all you collectors can just sell the cartridge, and have more than enough money left over to buy another one right?(on VC, which are better anyways) Or am I wrong? HA….HA…HAHA…HAHAHA…HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Grodus I’m still hoping. What would be cool is if I could play Luigi’s Mansion on my Wii U just before dark moon came out. …”love to see GameCube games on the Wii U“,… The comma goes inside the quotations. Now I know why, because that lookstupid., Arsonist Monkey Nintendo…. I WANNA KNOW WHAT LOVE IS! I WANT YOU TO SHOW ME I WANT GAMECUBE GAMES ON WII U! I WANT TO DOWNLOAD THEM! Pikmaster It would be cool if they added WiFi to Colosseum/XD, Melee, Four Swords and Pikmin 2. Just a thought. Teves153 This would make sense as you could get n64 games on wii Hero Of Time Want List of Games: LoZ 4 Swords F Zero Sunshine Luigi’s Mansion Wind Waker Godzilla, Destroy All Monsters: Melee and ALL Pokemon Games Wario is my Hero Frick YES!!!! Wii U is going to decimate the new Playstation and Xbox when they come out.. I haven’t owned a Nintendo system since the N64 (played Gamecube a lot.. friend had it) But I am for sure switching back to Nintendo! 🙂 Wario is my Hero I want Rampage and Road Rash to comeback! Superstick Too freaking awesome. Gamecube games are way too freaking hard too find these days. And when you do find them, they’re not likely to last long do to people CARELESSLY SCRATCHING THEM UP. Downloadable gamecube games for the world! Phoenex68 From what I understand and have heard is that some Gamecube games might be remade and graphically enhanced for the Wii U,, like Zelda Majoras Mask. bronson it would be amazing if they brought back phantasy star with online again from the game cube that would definitely bring in more console owners Dustin Kidd only gamecube game i care to see is super smash bros meele Michael Wakeman How about 4 swords, connectivity between the wii u gamepad and 3DS or add a single player adventure like in the anniversary edition.
