Nintendo President Satoru Iwata has said that Nintendo are planning a Wii U Virtual Console that will be compatible with the Wii U GamePad, but don't expect it at launch.
Speaking during a new Nintendo Direct broadcast, Iwata once again confirmed that you'll only be able to play Wii, WiiWare and Virtual Console games on your TV rather than the Wii U GamePad screen.
Iwata is reported to have said it was unfortunate that these games couldn't be played on the GamePad screen but Nintendo does have plans for the Wii U Virtual Console in the future.
Iwata said: "We understand that there are people who were looking forward to playing Wii games, Virtual Console games, and so forth on the GamePad, but unfortunately we cannot accommodate those users' expectations.
"There are plans for a Wii U Virtual Console that will be compatible with the Wii U GamePad. Please look forward to it in the future."
We will look forward to it Mr Iwata.
