Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime says he would “love” GameCube games to be made available on Wii U‘s Virtual Console store.

The original Wii was able to play GameCube discs and use the console’s controllers, although the feature was later removed in newer models. Likewise, the Wii U will not run original GameCube discs.


Speaking to Kotaku, the NOA boss showed that he at least is in favour of replacing the feature via digital downloads: “Personally I would love for that to happen,” he said, “but we have nothing to announce right now.”

Nintendo has confirmed a November Wii U release date for the US and Europe, with the US Wii U price set at $299 for the Basic model and $349 for the Premium one.

At UK retail the Wii U price currently lies at around £250 for the Basic unit and £290 to £300 for the Premium unit.
