Wii Homebrew Channel Now Available on Wii U

Shortly after the Wii U launched, the famed Homebrew Channel was teased for folks who enjoy tinkering with their hardware. While there’s still no Wii U Homebrew option for these individuals to take advantage of, HackMii has reported that the Homebrew Channel for the original Wii is now fully functional on the Wii U.

If you plan on running the Homebrew Channel, you’ll be able to do so on your Wii menu. In other words, there’s technically still no Wii U option. Either way, this news may get some folks stoked as a lot of individuals use this “feature” to play games that weren’t localized in North America as well as pirated versions of classic titles.

I think it’s safe to say that it’s only a matter of time until someone cooks up a Wii U Homebrew Channel. If you’re into that stuff, use it at your own discretion and be wary of anything that may go wrong. Ya never know!
