Many have wondered whether the Wii U will include a Virtual Console service updated with GameCube games, and now NOA executive Amber McCollom has revealed that the answer is yes – through WiiWare. In an interview with NintendoGal, she is quoted as saying:
GameCube discs will not be compatible with Wii U, but a number of the games that were playable on GameCube can be downloaded from WiiWare.
Whether or not McCollum misspoke and intended instead to say Virtual Console – "Ware" isn't even referred to in the 3DS eShop – remains to be seen, but regardless, it's nice to know that Nintendo will continue new gamers to play these titles of yesteryear.
