Trinen discusses Wii U Virtual Console service and Wii Mode

Nintendo product marketing manager Bill Trinen has further discussed plans for the Wii U’s Virtual Console, and touched upon the console’s “Wii mode.”

“We are working on Virtual Console. More importantly, you will have the ability to transfer data from Wii to Wii U. This includes game save data, and the Virtual Console games you have purchased,” Trinen explained
in an interview with Wired.

“Like all Wii content, whether it’s disc-based or not, you’ll select the Wii mode on the Wii U hardware to access that content. Wii mode will be an option on the Wii U menu that you’ll see on the GamePad.

“In terms of how the Virtual Console on Wii is going to function, we are probably going to be talking more specifically about that between now and launch.”
