The Wii U is compatible with most Wii games, both on disc and digital. Wii accessories such as the Wii Remote, Wii Remote Plus, Nunchuk, and Balance Board also remain compatible. It is also possible to move downloaded software and save files from the Wii to the Wii U. However, despite the Wii's general compatibility with GameCube games, the Wii U is not compatible with GameCube discs or accessories, although Nintendo has stated that some GameCube games will be available as Virtual Console titles through the Wii U's eShop. While original Wii games are playable on the Wii U system, they cannot be played on the GamePad screen.
