Emulators via vWii
Most emulators available for the Wii will also work on vWii (virtual Wii) mode on the Wii U. However, due to sandboxing, there will be no performance gain over a Wii, though some emulators support the Wii U pro controller or Wii U Gamepad.

- ↑ Cave Story Engine 2, or CSE2 for short, received a DMCA cease and desist notice from Nicalis, the current IP owner of Cave Story, despite the original Cave Story being a freeware developed by Daisuke "Pixel" Amaya.
- ↑ Ship of Harkinian requires either the GameCube's PAL Debug ROM (recommended), PAL Master Quest Debug ROM (for Master Quest mode's dungeons; supported as of v5.0.0), or the regular PAL GameCube ROM (not recommended) of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time to generate an
oot.otr file from OTRGui (from the PC download) to play it.
- ↑ This unofficial Wii U port of the Sonia Mania Decompilation project plays and loads great. Some frames will drop during giant ring special stages when too many 3D assets appear on the screen but performance is arguably bearable. Missing features as of v1.0.3 include screen filters, the 'DLC' option in the main menu doesn't do anything (but 'Encore Mode' works when
dlcEnabled is set to
Settings.ini) and limited mod support.
