Wii Shop Channel: Playing Virtual Console Games


In 2019, we will close the Wii Shop Channel used on Wii and Wii U, which has been available since December 2006.

Read this article for all the end dates for each service!


Once you have downloaded a Virtual Console game from the Wii Shop, it will appear as a channel within the Wii Channel menu. Please note that you must have a compatible controller type to play Virtual Console games.
