This is mainly for my own benefit, but thought other people might find it interesting. Below is a list of games that were released on the Wii U's VC but not the Wii's, for both NA and PAL (Japan is confusing so I'm skipping it). The list is broken down into sections; games from consoles that Wii VC had, and games on consoles new to VC.

Only 3 exculsive games not GBA on Wii U VC? I'm surprised, but not surprised at the same time.

Most Hyped Games:
Sm4sh U
Zelda U
Splatoon
Omega Ruby
Sunset Overdrive
Dragon Quest Heroes
Final Fantasy XV

Not really. Nintendo probably skipped Golf for the newer NES Open Tournament, and Dr. Mario was probably skipped because of the WiiWare version.
They could've put EarthBound on Wii at the same time as on WiiU, but maybe they really thought people be excited by a WiiU and the game for about the same cost as a physical copy. :P

Really, they never released Contra III and Kirby Super Star on PAL Wii? Not even the PAL versions Super Probotector and Kirby's Fun Pak?

I'm pretty sure Super Probotector was released, but given that was PAL and they're trying to do 60Hz releases cross-border, they are technically different things.

I think you must remove the GBA list because GBA isn´t available on Wii VC.

@DarkEdi that doesn't make them not exclusive just because the console wasn't supported on the Wii Shop.

But them being available for 3DS Ambassadors does make them not exclusive.

@KingMike is spot on with some of these - I think you're getting a little confused because of name changes. We usually get the U.S. versions of Virtual Console games on Wii U, so we did get Contra III and Kirby Super Star on Wii, except they were called Super Probotector and Kirby's Fun Pak respectively.

I also agree that Game Boy Advance shouldn't really be on the list; you're comparing the Virtual Console services on Wii and Wii U, so naturally every Game Boy Advance game released on Wii U will be exclusive, so to speak. You could always add a footnote saying that all Game Boy Advance games are new because of that.

Nice list, though. Could prove useful in the future.

This list is specifically for Wii U VC games that weren't on Wii VC.

@KingMike & @Cipher, I will check those out the next time I update the list later this week.

Why? The purpose of the OP was to list games not available on Wii. Removing them defeats the purpose

Yeah that's right.
PAL gamers can upgrade Super Probotector (Wii) and Kirby's Fun Pak (Wii) to Contra III (WiiU) and Kirby Super Star (WiiU).
They're the same games. It's wellknown they're released under different titles with minor changes.

Only hypothetical question, if they ever added Wii retail games as Wii U VC, would those count as exclusive?
