Nintendo Bringing DS Games to Wii U Virtual Console 0


All of the recent doom-and-gloom predictions about Nintendo’s future, despite being unproven, do have a basis in fact, as their quarterly financial meeting in Japan proved that there is a need to shake things up and make their latest console, the Wii U, appeal more to consumers.

Aside from Nintendo President Satoru Iwata taking a 50% pay cut, Nintendo also plans to bring DS games to the Wii U’s Virtual Console. It is said that Nintendo managed to overcome the technical and design hurdles that were previously preventing them from bringing DS titles to the Wii. It is not surprising, as the Wii U is a powerhouse compared to its predecessor, and the DS gamepad now allows them to provide a screen for the DS’ touchscreen.
