Nintendo Plans Wii U Virtual Console Playable on its GamePad

Nintendo of America reached out to Kotaku yesterday, probably in response to the publication’s claim of Nintendo dropping the ball on its online marketplace, to reveal that a Virtual Console for the Wii U is coming up.

As of now, the original Wii’s Virtual Console games are not playable using only the Wii U GamePad, but Nintendo plans to make the Wii U Virtual Console compatible with the GamePad. This means that future VC games will be playable solely with the GamePad on its 6.2-inch touchscreen.

“We do not have any specifics to share at this time,” said a Nintendo rep. “However, we are moving ahead with development of Virtual Console for Wii U, and we plan to make it so you can play it on the Wii U GamePad alone.”
