I checked: the manual you get is for the Virtual Console itself, not for the game that you're playing on it.
All games and software on Wii U have digital manuals.
Me too! Cant figure it out.
I... I have a confession. I couldn't remember how to activate the morphball once I got it. There's no manual, there was no on-screen wotsit. Noobface.
And no, there isnt a manual. I checked
While running any game / software, hit the home button then select manual (lower right Gamepad) and it will bring up the manual for that piece of software / game.
Exceptions to this are the Miiverse, eShop and Internet Browser, which for some reason have their manuals accessible elsewhere in their respective apps, possibly because pressing the home button automatically exits these apps.
