How Can I Play My Old Wii Games on my Wii U?

Please Note!

Starting a Wii game will automatically launch the Wii Menu. Be sure to exit the Wii Menu before inserting a Wii U game again.

In order to launch Wii mode, you will need to sync a Wii Remote with the Wii U console.
Launch Wii Mode by performing the following:

  • From a disc: If you have entered a Wii disc into your Wii U, launch the software as normal.

  • From the icon: If you are not launching software from a disc, scroll to the Wii Menu icon located on the Wii U Menu and press A.

  • Use the Wii Remote to select "Wii Menu" by pointing the Wii Remote at the screen, hovering the hand icon over "Wii Menu," and pressing the A Button.

  • If you have not yet sync'd a Wii Remote with the Wii U Console, you will be prompted to sync one. Follow the on-screen instructions.

  • Once Wii Mode launches, use the Wii Remote to launch the disc / channel that you would like to access.
