GameCube games coming to WiiWare?

If Nintendo Director of Entertainment and Trend Marketing Amber McCollom is to be believed, GameCube software will be available on Nintendo’s upcoming Wii U console through the WiiWare service. In an interview with Nintendo Gal, McCollom said, “GameCube discs will not be compatible with Wii U, but a number of the games that were playable on GameCube can be downloaded from WiiWare.”

One has to wonder if we’ll just get straight up ports of these games, or whether Nintendo will go the HD remaster route, which has proved lucrative for Sony. Whatever the answer is, we’ll be waiting for some kind of official confirmation before we get our hopes up.
