I feel like this is a question that gets asked often but after a lot of searching I couldn't seem to find anything relevant. Other than an official Nintendo page saying... [No you can't use the WiiU gamepad to play Wii games.] I don't have a WiiU yet, but plan on getting one. I don't even plan on softmodding it since my Wii does everything I already want to do. BUT!, if there was a way to play Wii games with a WiiU gamepad, I'd definitely do it. I'm not completely up on all of the gamepads features, but it seems safe to assume that it's capable of doing all of the things that the Wii Remote/Nunchuk combo can do. I haven't found anything that's said it's possible. Is it something that'll never be possible?
