I'd really consider getting one even if you are just going to play Wii games. It upscales Wii games to HD, from what I understand.

Destiny, justice and retribrution will be mine.

I know that it was abandoned by Nintendo very soon, long before Switch was released but I love my Wii U as well. In my opinion, Xenoblade Chronicles X is the best Wii U game excluding The Legend of Zelda remasters and including games that were ported to Switch. Twilight Princess HD in particular is vastly improved. Then there are some gems, more than Switch has received in a longer time. Most of the Switch gems are Wii U ports. Even then, some of those games are still better on Wii U. Then, the thing I like about Wii U the most is the backwards compatibility plus the Virtual Console and that it accepts a wide variety of controllers. All of this with an unmodded Wii U, if you soft-mod it, you can run your GameCube and Wii games on a HDD or USB flash drive. Considering that GameCube and Wii lack HDMI, Wii U is the ultimate Nintendo console and better than the somehow unreliable and very limited Switch.

If you’re just looking to play your Wii library then no, get a Wii.

If you’re willing to hack it, also yes, it’s a great Emulation box.

Without that I wouldn’t bother. It’s a muddled mess of a very slow system with little to offer and most of its good games are on the Switch.

And it's capable of playing GameCube games through homebrew.

@1UP_MARIO Wii U upscales everything to your selected output resolution. Try hitting the info button on your television's remote control the next time you have a Wii game going on your Wii U. It will show the resolution your Wii U is set to output at, definitively proving the matter.

The one exception, unless an OS update eventually fixed it, are PAL Wii U's via component. Wii games won't be upscaled and 60 hz progressive scan capable Wii games can't have that mode enabled (The Wii U will instead deinterlace their 50 hz 576i output to 576p instead of letting the game render at 480p/60hz). That's not the case for NTSC systems, with component capable of everything the system can also do via HDMI.

@Atariboy true. Still looks like 480p like if you’re using component on Wii. Upscales to match hdmi.
