Wii Homebrew Channel Working on Wii U

Posted on December 10, 2012 AT 05:45am

The hackers behind the Wii Homebrew Channel have managed to get it working on Nintendo’s new Wii U console.

A post by dhewg–one of the team behind the channel–reveals that a new version of the channel is now available that works on both consoles. For now, the Homebrew Channel will only run in Wii mode on the Wii U, but dhewg hopes that the hacking community can use this break-through to find a way to get the channel running in Wii U mode.

“We can all try to hack the Wii U together from inside Wii mode,” he said. It appears that the Wii U is still a long way off being fully hacked, for now. A similar break-through was made when the 3DS came out–Hackers managed to get DS homebrew cartridges running in DS mode, but are still unable to run them in full 3DS mode.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
