1WolfieVIISun 27th Jan 2013 I've been looking to get a Wii U for some time, especially after the recent Nintendo Direct announcements. I just have one question though. Alongside Wii U titles, there are a couple of Wii titles I missed out on because I never owned the console and I still want to play them. I keep hearing that the Wii U can play Wii games and so on, but I'm wondering one thing. Since I never owned a Wii console, would I need to buy anything extra for the Wii U so I can play the Wii games? Thanks in advance! "A shooting star is actually someone driving off Rainbow Road."
