This is a list of Wii games that are available on Wii U for download from the Nintendo eShop. These games utilize the backward compatibility of Wii U with Wii games in order to run, albeit without needing to explicitly access the Wii Menu. Games that can be played with the Classic Controller can also be played using the Wii U GamePad as a controller instead. The download variants can also support any save files created on or transferred to the Wii U from any respective disc variant of the same title. Although similar to Virtual Console titles in some ways, these games are not technically part of Virtual Console as they run on native hardware rather than by emulation, and are not branded as such, except by Nintendo of America.

33 games have been released in Japan, 30 in North America, and 28 in the PAL region. The games are sorted by title. To sort by other columns, click the corresponding icon in the header row.
