MH: Something we haven’t heard much about is Virtual Console. Is there anything you can tell me regarding that going forward on the Wii U? So far, things on that front have been largely silent.
MR: Well, rest assured, your Virtual Console and WiiWare purchases can be moved over to the Wii U. Your Miis can even be moved over as well, which is done through the Wii Remote, which you’re probably already familiar with, on how to transfer Miis. Pretty much all that content that you’ve invested in on your Wii can be transferred over to your Wii U, from a Virtual Console, WiiWare, and Mii perspective.
That is a COMPLETE DODGE. Nintendo does not want to talk about the Wii U Virtual Console. The question is, why? They’re not even admitting the Wii U will have a Virtual Console.
The response was nothing but Wii backwards compatibility.
What people should be asking is whether Nintendo is going to continue the Virtual Console on the Wii U or not. Nintendo not saying anything should be very worrying.
