    Step one is to buy the games from the Shop Channel.

    I have a question. If the wii u seems to be a bit more powerful than the wii, is there any miracle that N64 games would run a lot better with the vWii or are we still in the same slump? Banjo Kazooie would be my first choice, sorry mario :( lol

    I'm fairly certain it will run the same. Remember, the emulators run in "Wii mode", which itself is like an emulator that replicates the old hardware within the Wii-U. I don't think Wii mode has access to all the improved speed that the Wii-U uses.

    Wii mode is basically the same as running gamecube games on an normal Wii. The games run just like they would on a regular wii.

    Unless you're using Devolution, which runs GameCube games in full-on Wii mode. :P
