Or the fact the well ran mostly dry by the time Wiiware came out. Hell, most of the complaints then were "where are VC games in general? I want quantity!!"

GameCube VC was one of my most wanted requests. Unfortunately, you're not getting it from Nintendo.

Fortunately, you can take matters into your own hands and play GameCube on Wii U, upscaled to HD, and with Wii U Pro Controller or any Bluetooth controller (including new Xbox Lab controller), even with the GameCube Smash Bros adapter and a real GameCube Controller. Virtual memory cards so no save issues either.

And it's so easy, a caveman could do it. People don't even realize they're literally 30 minutes away from playing GameCube right and proper on Wii U.

If you own the games and want to preserve them digitally, play them in widescreen in HD with a modern, wireless controller, without wearing your discs on an old console, just do it. Forget waiting on Nintendo- we'd have our empty hands outstretched til we're grey haired and toothless.

@tux_peng I run my Gamecube games on my Wii with a gamecube controller. I don't have a Wii-U yet. Does that homebrew thing allow the Wii-U to function with the gamecube controller (via the adapter?) or is that still not possible?

I don't have that many gamecube games: Batallion Wars (which I'm yet to play through), Wave Race, 1080 and Luigi's mansion and that's about it.

Windwaker and Twilight Princess I've got in the HD editions for the Wii-U (but I don't yet have a Wii U...currently the console I want most).

Also, got at least one import Wii game that I can't play until I import a Wii: Indianapolis 500 Legends (although I do have the sequel that I can't play on my PAL 360). Also I hear good things about the most recent Trauma Team but it didn't get a PAL release.

@SuperPaperLuigi The GC adapter should work with nintendont, along with PS3, PS4, & any HID jgamepad, the Pro Controller, & Classic controllers

I just hope that when they realized all of the Wii vc had to be done from scratch a second time for the wiiu they put a plan in place for all of it to carry over to the nx day one. I definitely don't want to start all over again and the turbo games near the end of the wiiu's lifecycle give me hope that they did.

@tux_peng Thanks for the info. I've read you can't use the adapter in Wii mode on the Wii-U, which kind of sucks. It'd be nice to be able to consolidate the platforms but it's a lot more easily said than done I guess.

@YellowFighter well with the wiiu everything had to be remade from scratch. As I posted above I hope they put a plan in place for the vc eshop to get ported over day one.

The VC has so much potential but once again Nintendo has ruined it. The fact that the Wii U library doesn't even have as many games as the Wii mean that its a down grade. Like come on Nintendo at least put all the games from your old e-shop on there, and don't get me started on games that are out in Japan and not the west

@haigh1011 we also have games the Japanese don't. I think the issue is they had to start from scratch with the wiiu. I hope they planned ahead and can just port it all over.

@SuperPaperLuigi
You can't use the adapter in Wii mode, until you boot up a GameCube game. Then it recognizes it because Nintendont is programmed to recognize it. It's the only way to use original GC controllers for GC on Wii as far as I know.

@JaxonH Thanks. I'm really just interested in it for my Wii fighting games: Guilty Gear, Tatsunoko V.s Capcom etc.

It's not too bad since I do still have a Wii for that stuff but it would be cool to be able to play it on the Wii U.

Even though I didn't have a GC growing up, I feel that the switch will allow me to play such heard of gems such as Super Mario Sunshine and Super Smash Bros Melee.

You just made my morning! That's fantastic news!

And if the rumours of the Switch having analog triggers are true, we'll be able to play those titles without compromises.

I have a chronic lack of time, for everything.

Now playing: Okami HD, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

As long as Chibi Robo is one of the first games to be re-released I'll be happy. I'm one of those people that didn't get many opportunities to play GameCube games, so Chibi Robo and Star Fox Adventures would be awesome. And i don't want to pay the premium prices other websites charge the games for.

I am not going to get to excited for the VC just yet. The Wii and Wii U VC has taught me that there is too much red tape for alot of my favorite games to come to VC.

Is this gonna be another broken promise? Find out in March!!!

Or a promise not made at all?

With regards to the VC, my favourite approach for Nintendo to take is announce on the day of release. Like you're watching a Nintendo direct and BAM, you can now download Metroid Prime. Feels much better than overpromising and underdelivering.

They hardly overpromise...mostly because they rarely promise at all
