Wii games played on Wii U reportedly look much better when played on HDTV

Wii U owners are reporting that when playing Wii games on their new console via an HDTV with 1080p display resolution, the game actually look better – which is good news for those who’ve amassed quite a large Wii library over the years. While the backwards compatible console doesn’t render older games in 1080p, Wii U will upscale the games in the same manner as a decent HDTV line. While the games won’t contain as much detail as the newer Wii U offerings, rough edges are smoothed and few touch ups will at least be applied. In short, your Wii games may not look “as good” as your Wii U games on your spankingly nice TV, but they won’t look horrible either, and that’s a good thing. Via: NeoGAF, CVG.
