I think you have to go to the Wii channel.

But I don't know what it is called since my Wii U didn't arrive yet.

Correct, for some reason you have to go through the Wii Channel for now. Should be up on the normal eshop soon.

I find it weird that the Wiishop stuff isnt on the eshop. Since Im sure its not too hard to program the eshop to install the game or app under the memory dedicated to "Wii mode." Hopefully there will be a firmware update in the future, like later in December, that makes it where when you try to start the Wiishop, it will redirect you to the eshop under the section dedicated to the Wiishop games and apps.

But anyway to buy anything Wii related downloadable games, you need to go to Wii mode, go to the Wiishop, and then go to the section dedicated to VC games.

Nintendo e shop has wii u downloads. I've read as of 12/1/12 you earn points for any purchase. It is suppose to last for 2 years. I'm waiting until 12/1 to buy Lil' Inferno.

You don't need to wait. The points are automatically rewarded for any eShop purchase made on or after Nov 18th.

Don't buy on the wii eshop. The wiiu eshop VC titles will be playable on the gamepad, the wii ones will not.
