Describe Wii U

Wii U is a home video game console, just like PS4 and Xbox One are. Nintendo created it, and it was made available in 2012. It is the first Nintendo console with a brand-new touch screen controller and compatibility for up to 1080P high-definition output.
The console’s 2GB of RAM is less than what other consoles have. There are only two storage package options for the Wii U: the basic package, which includes 8GB of flash memory, and the deluxe package, which includes 32GB of flash memory. That is why so many people desire to use an external hard drive to increase Wii U storage.
Nintendo has declared that Wii U would be officially discontinued in 2017 due to a lackluster game lineup and scant third-party support. Many enthusiasts still play games on Wii U, though. You need to hack the Wii U and use a Homebrew application in order to play GameCube games on the Wii U seamlessly.

Why Make Homebrew?

Homebrew is a tool that enables Wii U hacks and other constrained hardware devices to be expanded. You need the Homebrew software to enable the GameCube hardware on Wii U because the GameCube disc and its attachments are incompatible with the Wii U.
This program also has a wealth of useful features like memory card emulation, customized games, and modified games. You can even play game backups from an external hard drive on Wii U with this Homebrew installed.
The Wii U hardware and homebrew software may now be familiar to you on a general level. More importantly, we’ll demonstrate how to run Wii U titles that have been homebrewed. Continue reading attentively.

You need to first use Homebrew to hack Wii U in order to play games smoothly. Please read the following background carefully as this process is rather drawn out and complicated.

Setup Your Sd Card, First

As was already said, in order to install Homebrew and Haxchi, we need a FAT32 SD card. If your SD card is larger than 32GB, a professional formatter could be necessary. A reliable program called MiniTool Partition Wizard can make formatting SD cards simple.
Step 1: Use a card reader to attach the prepared SD card to your computer.
Step 2. Run the application to access the main screen. Next, choose the SD partition from the disc map by clicking on Format Partition in the left pane.
Step 3: From the File System drop-down menu, choose FAT32. Click OK to save your selections. The Partition Label can be changed to Homebrew here.

Step 4: To apply this formatting, click the Apply button.

Create 2 empty folders on the SD card and fill them with the Homebrew files in step 5 of the process. Here, you can give each of the folders for WiiU and Install their own names.
Step 6: Under the Install directory, create the HBC folder. Then, under the WiiU directory, create the applications folder. The WiiU/apps folder is where homebrew apps are saved, while the Install folder is where custom Homebrew Channels are installed.
The next steps to hack Wii U Homebrew can be taken after setting up an SD card.
