Alright, it's been a year and I'm finally have the time to sit down and fiddle with this, hopefully in time for Halloween.

So, how do I play Import (Japanese and European) Wii games on my Wii U?
I have the original Discs for all the games I plan to play, so I am not playing them off an external drive or anything like that.
I have both my Wii U, and My Wii U's Wii mode soft modded.

What mods do I need to install, and they will the Wii Mode that needs modding right?
I heard Gecko works on the original, and something called Tiny Load?

The games I am trying to play are
Fatal Frame 4 (Japanese, need to run the English patch while playing)
Captain Rainbow (Japanese, need to run the English patch while playing)
Fatal Frame 2 (European version)

OR, should just use the soft mods on my original Wii console, and skip the whole Wii U mess entirely? (I just prefer the HDMI out is all)

Thank you to all who read this!

Here just use a vc Injection tool and make the base the same region I recommend UWUVCI because Its extremely simple but other ones like teconmoons Wii vc Injector works but some people have had issues with it including myself just download the npfs or iso on the web and inject it into a WUP then install with WUP Installer GX2 and it's right on your home menu if the game supports pro controller you can play from the gamepad with the gamepad screen if it's Wii remote only you just play normally also before you play and install with GX2 you must run CFW (mocha cbhc haxchi) hope this helps if you have any other questions feel free to ask

The problem is, the two Japanese games need to run the translator as well.
Sounds like #1 is easier, just turn Wii mode into a Japanese or European Wii? sounds good.
