    NO it won't brick if you using a cfw with regionfree it will launch like normal.

    If you cfw doesn't have regionfree it just won't launch

    This is particularly useful for 50Hz PAL Wii U VC games


    NES
    Balloon Fight
    Kirby's Adventure
    Street Gangs
    Ufouria: The Saga

    SNES
    Donkey Kong Country 2
    Harvest Moon
    Legend of The Mystical Ninja
    Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
    Pop'n Twinbee
    Pop'n Twinbee: Rainbow Bell Adventures
    Super Metroid

    N64
    Donkey Kong 64
    Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
    Paper Mario
    The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
    Pokémon Snap


    You should always install the US (60Hz) version of these 16 games, if your PAL wiiU is region patched (CBHC or Mocha).

    Now that we're at it, here's also a (this time incomplete) list of 50Hz PAL Wii-era games

    50hz only: (confirmed)
    Call of Duty 3
    Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 2 + 3
    Gottlieb Pinball Classics
    Harvest Moon Magical Melody
    Harvest Moon Tree of Tranquility
    Harvest Moon Animal Parade
    Heatseeker
    Little King's Story
    MadWorld
    Mario Party 8
    Samurai Warriors 3
    Scarface
    Sega Bass Fishing
    Super Mario All Stars
    Tenchu Shadow Assassins
    Tiger Woods 07

    Unconfirmed?
    Baroque
    Bomberman Land
    Dragon Ball Revenge of King Piccolo
    Kororinpa Marble Mania
    Samurai Warriors Katana
    Some licensed titles, probably

    576i/480i (non 480p)only titles:
    Case Closed
    Metal Slug Anthology (and maybe other compilations)
    Rune Factory Frontier
    Sakura Wars: So Long My Love
    Trauma Center Second Opinion
    Trauma Center New Blood


    Luckily none of them has been re-released on the Wii U eshop, I believe.

    And here's an updated (mid January 2017) list of the 14 VC titles only available in US eShop for WiiU and not in EU eShop

    -Baseball Simulator 1.000 (NES)
    -Bases Loaded (NES)
    -Car Battler Joe (GBA)
    -City Connection (NES)
    -Genghis Khan II: Clan of the Gray Wolf (SNES)
    -Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town (GBA)
    -Harvest Moon: More Friends of Mineral Town (GBA)
    -Metal Marines (SNES)
    -Rival Turf! (SNES)
    -Sky Kid (NES)
    -Stinger (NES)
    -Super E.D.F.: Earth Defense Force (SNES)
    -The Ignition Factor (SNES)
    -Vs. Excitebike (NES)

    (props to "GoneFishin" from nintendolife)

    So if you're in Europe you should download at least 30 US vc games
    - 16 because PAL version is the inferior 50Hz version (see my first post in this thread)
    - 14 because they outright don't exist on PAL eShop

    i did not know VC titles worked, but do the wii vc's work too ?
    :wtf:
    and if they do , how do you start them off? do you install it in USB (just like the usual USB method of installing WiiU main titles?) and once installed you will see it in the vWii ?
