  1. If the game doesn’t require the Wii Remote and can be played with a classic controller then it should be playable with the GamePad :)

  2. Nice. But how about N64 and GameCube? Barely anything from them thus far. I guess NX still get them. Or maybe we just won’t get them on VC at all if NX doesn’t end up having one. I was really hoping for some old games from those consoles on VC.

    1. I don’t know about N64 (since we already have some games for the Wii U Virtual Console), but perhaps Nintendo considers still considers it as too soon (but that doesn’t make sense since they have the Wii on VC).

      I don’t know, but like you said, I guess we’ll have to wait until the NX VC for GameCube (I was kind of hoping to see Smash Bros. Melee in there). :/

      I will say this, though: the Wii Virtual Console did a much better job (and was a lot more consistent; even the American one had some Japan-only imports). What happened? Why is VC this time around so dried up?
