Why some Wii games have a weird 4:3 aspect ratio on Wii U?

    I noticed this with a couple of games (like "Just Dance 1" and "The Last Story"), while it doesn't happen with others (like "Just Dance 3").
    I tried different options in Wiiflow ("force 16:9" and every option in "video mode") and nothing. Even changing the tv settings did nothing.

    Any suggestion on the matter?

    You launched the loader from HBC (in 4:3) or from a forwarder?
    If you launch HBC first, there's a homebrew fix to set HBC into 16:9 again before launching another homebrew.

    If you are in 16:9 and the game is switched to 4:3, maybe it has something to do with the GameID, like with HBC's TitleID starting with L? (WiiU think you launch a VC title)
    But there are a lot of Wii games starting with S, and all Just Dance games start with S too so it's probably not the GameID and something else force the WiiMode in 4:3

    I tried launching Wiiflow using a forwarder, and the ratio was right, thank you for the suggestion :)
    I suppose this happened because of the 4.0 and the native 4:3 for VCs.

    Thank you again (I'll use JoostinOnline solution from now on)
