Questions about the Wii U
Posted 3/2/14
Hi everyone.So I'm buying a Wii u soon but I'm realy confused about few things because this is my first Nintendo console and would appreciate any help :

1- I want to play the Old first Wii games.do I have to buy a nunchuck or an old Wii controller just for that reason ? because I heard there is no other way to connect these games and play them in the Wii U .

2-Can I download Online games from the Nintendo online network ? and if so how much is the price is it the same as buying a new game or is it different for older games ?

3-can you realy play games like Resident evil with the nunchuck ? or hack in slash games like Bayonetta in the Pad ? because I feel more like buying a Wii U pro controller even though its expensive

4- If anyone knows I heard the Wii online network will shut down in may,and only Wii u will remain.if so can someone still download the old Wii games ? or was is it possible to download them for your Wii U in the first place ? because its hard to find the old good games .

Alrighty, time to answer.

1 - You have to use a Wiimote and Nuchucke to play some Wii games.

2 - You can purchase digital versions of retail games (for the same price as retail) and downloadable games on the eShop. Games are usually $5-$20 for new downloadable games and Virtual Console games (old games) will cost around $4 - $15.

3 - Someone can answer that because I haven't played Resident Evil 4. But I'm sure you should be able to play Bayonetta 2 on the gamepad as it comes with the Wii U. The Pro controller may be worth it if you have people who can play with you.

4 - Sadly, most of the Virtual Console on the Wii (and all of the Wiiware I believe) didn't transferred into the Wii U so only some title remains. You can probably still download the available games before the shop shuts down and play them (except multiplayer). Some of the titles for Virtual Console may be re-released on the eShop although you have to pay $1 for NES and $1.50 for SNES.

I hope you'll find most of this useful. Don't hesitate to ask if you don't understand anything, I can rephrase it.

Someone else can probably improve on the answers.

Thank you for your time, so I take from your answers that
1- some wii games CAN work without the nunchuck or the old controller ? and some can't ?

2- I 'm realy confused about this.does this mean If I download a Wii U game form the eshop I can get it in a cheaper price than ordering it from Amazon or Game stop ?

4- does this means not all Wii games work on the Wii U. say I buy a random retail wii game like Resident evil zero or xenoblade? can it work ?

Sorry for being such a noob.I don't know much about the Wii and I didn't get the 4th one quite well..

1. Yes. Wii software can only be played using Wii controllers and accessories.

2. Select retail games, Virtual Console, and original download-only games can be purchased in the Nintendo eShop. A wider selection of Virtual Console games, as well as WiiWare games, are also available for download on the Wii U's Wii Mode.
Pricing for most retail games will be close to the MSRP, which is typically $59.99 USD, though prices will vary by game.
Nintendo eShop original games will vary in price.
NES Virtual Console games carry a default price of $4.99 each, while SNES Virtual Console games carry a default price of $7.99, with the exception EarthBound, which is $9.99.
Additionally, if one owns an NES or SNES game or Wii Mode and the same game is available on the Nintendo eShop, consumers will be able to purchase that matching game on the Nintendo eShop at a discounted price, which is $1.00 for an NES game, and $1.50 for an SNES game.

3. Controls vary from game to game.

4. Online gameplay and game services for Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS, WiiWare, and DSiWare games through the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service will end globally on May 20 2014. Services which are not for online gaming, however, including the Wii Shop Channel and Nintendo DSi Shop, video on demand services, and the Internet Channel and Nintendo DSi Internet Browser, will remain unaffected and continue to operate as normal for the time being. Online gameplay, content, and services for Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Wii U will not be affected, aside from online gameplay of Nintendo Wii games and Nintendo DS games while in Wii Mode on Wii U and while playing Nintendo DS games on a Nintendo 3DS system respectively.

1. All Nintendo Wii software will require at least a Wii Remote or Wii RemotePlus controller. Depending on the game, a Nunchuk may be required, or a Classic Controller may be optional.

2. This largely depends on the game in question. Retail Wii U games occasionally go on sale in the Nintendo eShop, but in most cases, the physical retail version of a game can be purchased at a cheaper price. Virtual Console and Nintendo eShop original titles can only be obtained in the Nintendo eShop.

3/4. With the exception of Wii games which require the use of the Nintendo Gamecube controller ports and memory card slots, most of which are either dancing or physical fitness-type games, all Nintendo Wii software will work on the Wii U's Wii Mode.

Thanks for the Huge info.it does help.So here goes what I understand and what I'm going to do :

1- I'm buying a nunchuck and Wii remote for about 17 $ from Amazon and Wii U pro Controller for about 50 $
now this means I should have no trouble playing any Wii games right ? the Wii U pro controller will just have to be for Bayonetta and the Resident Evil games

2- Not all the old Wii games are available for download from the eShop.So I'm going to buy a retail copies form the stores or Amazon.games I'm going to buy and hoping they will work
Resident Evil Zero && Resident Evil 1 which was orginally for the Game Cube and re-released for the Wii,
Sins and Punishment
XenoBlade
Metroid Other M

I should have no trouble playing these in the Wii U right ? I don't want to buy a game and then go back home to find out it doesn't work.

3- is Clear

4- So everything about the Wii and DS will be closed in may exept Shopping ? .I'm not looking for Online gameplay & multiplayer games.Just shopping some Wii games which I hope will stay there at least some titles.

1. That depends on the Wii Remote controller that you're purchasing. If it's a Wii RemotePlus controller, or you can purchase a Wii MotionPlus accessory, you'll have no problem. If it's a standard Wii Remote controller, then some games, like Wii Sports Resort, Red Steel 2, and The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword won't work, as these games require the MotionPlus technology.

2. Retail games that were originally released on for the Nintendo Wii are not available for download from the Nintendo eShop. These games only exist as physical game discs that can only be played on either a Wii console or the Wii U's Wii Mode. The games you mentioned, however, will play with no problem, as none of those games require the use of Nintendo Gamecube components.

4. The Wii Shop Channel, Nintendo DSi Shop, Internet Channel on Wii, Nintendo DSi Browser on Nintendo DSi, and streaming video services like Netflix and Hulu Plus on Wii will continue to operate as normal after the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection game services end on May 20 2014.

1- I'm just purchasing a regluar old Wii Remote with its nunchuck. can you confirm I can play the Wii games I mentioned with it please ??
I don't want to spend more money on another accessory.this is getting ridiculous.this Console has far too many accessories.
Oh and Wait a min,I can't Play the old Resident Evil games with the Wii U pro controller right ? so these may have to stick with remote + nunchuck ?!

2- So technically you can't download Wii games for your Wii U .you just have to play them Online in the Wii U's Wii mode? does this cost money or is it just free?

4-Fair enough.I got it.

1. That's likely why the combo pack of the Wii Remote and Nunchuk you purchased was so cheap. Looking up information, it appears that Resident Evil Archives: Resident Evil and Resident Evil Archives: Resident Evil Zero do not require the Wii MotionPlus technology in order to be played. And as a player of Metroid: Other M, Sin & Punishment: Star Successor, and Xenoblade Chronicles myself, I can tell you that none of them require Wii MotionPlus technology, although I will say that Xenoblade Chronicles is much easier to play using a Classic Controller.
And yes, you cannot play Wii games using either the Wii U Gamepad or a Wii U Pro Controller.

2. Wii Mode does not require an online connection. It simply requires that you have the physical Nintendo Wii game disc of the game you want to play and the required Wii controllers to play that game. For example, if you wanted to play Super Mario Galaxy, you need the Super Mario Galaxy game, a Wii Remote controller, and a Nunchuk. If you wanted to play Kirby's Return to Dream Land, you would need a Wii Remote. And If you wanted to play The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, you would need a Wii RemotePlus controller (or a Wii Remote with a Wii MotionPlus accessory) and a Nunchuk. Online gameplay of Nintendo games, regardless of platform, has never costed anything.

Yeah it is cheap alright 17 dollars for both .but thats just because I ran out of money buying the Pro controller.
thanks for confirming the games.I know as an JRPG,XenoBlade should be easier with the controller.but the game alone is too expensive 80 $ from amazon so I might have to shut up and play it with the Remote.

Okay got it.so as long as I have these games I mentioned,which I'm going to buy. and the remote & nunchuck.I'll have no problem running them in the Wii U's wii mode ?!
Until I come across a game that need the motionplus remote.right now I'll stick with the regular.

Once you have a few extra dollars laying around again, you'll be able to pick up both a Classic Controller and a Wii MotionPlus accessory, then you'll be ready for anything.
You paid $80 for Xenoblade Chronicles alone? GameStop now is offering pre-owned copies for only $59.99, and they're only $53.99 if you're a Power-Up Rewards Pro member.

Correct. By entering Wii Mode, the Wii U essentially shuts itself down and reboots itself using the Wii's operating software. At this point, you're playing a Wii console now, not a Wii U. Once you're done playing your Wii, WiiWare, and/or Wii Virtual Console games, simply select the Wii U Menu Channel icon, and you can then switch back to your Wii U operating system and games. Quite simple really. If the big system update for the Wii U isn't already pre-installed on the Wii U console though, you'll have to update your console, as the update itself adds the Wii Mode compatibility.
Fortunately, looking around various sources for information about Wii software, it seems there are only a total of five Wii games that actually require the use of the Wii MotionPlus technology, those games being:

-Wii Sports Resort
-The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
-Wii Play Motion
-FlingSmash
-Red Steel 2

There may be other titles, but these are the only five that I can find that require the MotionPlus. If you don't have any of those games, then you don't have much of a reason to get the MotionPlus right away. Although I will say, Red Steel 2 is an amazing game, and well worth picking up.

No worries.I still didn't order anything,I just bookmarked all the pages that have the best price for games available from amazon.thanks for telling me about GameStop though.A friend told me about XenoBlade being sold cheaper there but I forgot xD
I'll check it out.
I'll buy the console from walmart the deluxe edition for 299 $.if you know anything cheaper let me know

Man I made a huge search about the Wii Online for about a few days trying to understand everything but still didn't come a cross as much info as yours.you sure know alot about the Wii.

to be honest I'm not interested in these games right now.the Main reason I want to buy the Wii U so badly is Bayonetta 2 because its my fav game and I don't want to miss it,and second because XenoBlade is such an amazing game.but I watched a trailer of Red Steel 2 and it looks fun.maybe I'll get it later with the motion plus,

No problem. Glad to help. At least you'll be saving a bit of money. Even with shipping, you'll still be saving like $15-$20.
As for getting a better deal on the Deluxe system brand-new, I currently don't know of any better deals than the standard MSRP. Although Nintendo itself does have refurbished Wii U Deluxe systems on sale for $225 plus shipping. That'll net you the Wii U console, the Wii U GamePad, a Wii U AC Adapter, a Wii U GamePad AC Adapter, a High Speed HDMI Cable, a Sensor Bar, and the Nintendo Land game disc. Personally though, I think purchasing the system brand-new is the way to go. Plus you get the New Super Mario Bros. U + New Super Luigi U game disc. New Super Mario Bros. U is good, but New Super Luigi U is amazing. Still, I'll double-check the weekly ads and see if any store has a special or bonus going on right now.

Ha ha. Truth be told, it's not just the Wii that I know a fair amount about. I've been playing and collecting Nintendo ever since I was given a Game Boy, Popeye 2, Tiny Tunes Adventures: Babs' Big Break, and Ms. Pac-Man for my forth birthday. I am now twenty-five. I spend much of my free time learning as much as I can about each console, the games and accessories for each console, and how they all work.

Ah, I see. Makes sense. Keep in mind though, Bayonetta 2, while it will be released here eventually, currently only has a target release date of Summer 2014 in Japan, so it could be a while before we get it. And yes, Xenoblade is a lot of fun as well. I haven't even hardly scratched the surface of the game though.
If you haven't ordered the Wii Remote and Nunchuk yet, there's a better deal you might be interested in. Nintendo's online store still has a special going on where you can purchase a refurbished Wii RemotePlus controller (which has the Wii MotionPlus technology built right in) and a Nunchuk for only $20. With shipping, it's about $25. You can purchase the bundle in black, white, or blue, the latter of which I personally would recommend, as the blue Nunchuk was only ever offered in a special Wii Skylanders: Giants bundle. Unlike a refurbished system though, where there is a lot that could go wrong, there isn't a whole lot that can go wrong with a controller.

No problem. Glad to help. At least you'll be saving a bit of money. Even with shipping, you'll still be saving like $15-$20.
As for getting a better deal on the Deluxe system brand-new, I currently don't know of any better deals than the standard MSRP. Although Nintendo itself does have refurbished Wii U Deluxe systems on sale for $225 plus shipping. That'll net you the Wii U console, the Wii U GamePad, a Wii U AC Adapter, a Wii U GamePad AC Adapter, a High Speed HDMI Cable, a Sensor Bar, and the Nintendo Land game disc. Personally though, I think purchasing the system brand-new is the way to go. Plus you get the New Super Mario Bros. U + New Super Luigi U game disc. New Super Mario Bros. U is good, but New Super Luigi U is amazing. Still, I'll double-check the weekly ads and see if any store has a special or bonus going on right now.

Ha ha. Truth be told, it's not just the Wii that I know a fair amount about. I've been playing and collecting Nintendo ever since I was given a Game Boy, Popeye 2, Tiny Tunes Adventures: Babs' Big Break, and Ms. Pac-Man for my forth birthday. I am now twenty-five. I spend much of my free time learning as much as I can about each console, the games and accessories for each console, and how they all work.

Ah, I see. Makes sense. Keep in mind though, Bayonetta 2, while it will be released here eventually, currently only has a target release date of Summer 2014 in Japan, so it could be a while before we get it. And yes, Xenoblade is a lot of fun as well. I haven't even hardly scratched the surface of the game though.
If you haven't ordered the Wii Remote and Nunchuk yet, there's a better deal you might be interested in. Nintendo's online store still has a special going on where you can purchase a refurbished Wii RemotePlus controller (which has the Wii MotionPlus technology built right in) and a Nunchuk for only $20. With shipping, it's about $25. You can purchase the bundle in black, white, or blue, the latter of which I personally would recommend, as the blue Nunchuk was only ever offered in a special Wii Skylanders: Giants bundle. Unlike a refurbished system though, where there is a lot that could go wrong, there isn't a whole lot that can go wrong with a controller.


Yes,I 'm not realy into buying anything refurbished.I'll feel much more comfortable buying a brand new one.and yeah it seems 299$ is the best deal out there.I just thought you might know something cheaper with all of your huge info database hahaha.

I know it may take a while.though the release date for Bayonetta 2 is Unknown yet,but it doesn't matter,realy because I'm not realy in rush to Play in My Wii U until June because I have the final exams coming in that month and I have to fucking study hard in these coming months.so I can't touch the console until then,I'm just going to buy it now and Just look at the box LMAO.

But would you realy say a refurbished Wii Remoteplus with the Nunchuck is a better deal than 17 $ for both regular Remote and a nunchuck but new from Amazon ?!
I dunno I 'l let you decide here is the link

Yeah, right now I don't see any better pricing options available for the system, and I don't see any special deals advertised in the weekly ads.

Well, you can do that if you want. Or perhaps you can check your local K-Mart stores. I had seen some stores had the original Wii U Deluxe bundle with Nintendo Land dropped down to the price range of $249.99-$259.99. You might also like The Wonderful 101, another game from Platinum. Then maybe you could crack the box open a little early. At least you could get the system updated, maybe have the Internet Browser running in the background. Fun fact, every one of these posts has actually been made using the GamePad and the Wii U's Internet Browser.

Would I say it's a better deal? Yes, I would actually. Why? Most Wii U games that support the Wii Remote controller require the Wii MotionPlus technology, such as Nintendo Land for example. Future Wii U games may require the Wii MotionPlus as well. For all we know, Bayonetta 2 could have an option for using the Wii MotionPlus technology. As a collector, I ordered a refurbished blue Wii RemotePlus and Nunchuk. The Nunchuk itself looks brand-new, and aside from a few very minor cosmetic blemishes, the Wii RemotePlus works just as well as a new controller. Nintendo refurbishes the items themselves, so the refurbished products meet Nintendo's own high standards.
