We already know that the Wii U will be unable to play GameCube discs. However a recent interview by NintendoGal.com with Amber McCollom, Nintendo of America’s Director of Entertainment and Trend Marketing, has revealed some possible new information. McCollom said:
“GameCube discs will not be compatible with Wii U, but a number of the games that were playable on GameCube can be downloaded from WiiWare.”
It is currently unknown if McCollom misspoke or if the Wii U will officially include GameCube games on a possible Wii U Virtual Console service.
