DS games coming to the Wii U VC

Quote:
At Nintendo's financial results meeting today, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata announced the company is planning to bring Nintendo DS games to the Wii U Virtual Console service, allowing certain titles to be playable on the Wii U Gamepad.

Iwata did not reveal which DS titles would be playable, although he highlighted how good the popular DS title Brain Age might look on the Gamepad's screen in a presentation slide.

Nintendo is doubling-down on its efforts to highlight the unique strengths of the Wii U Gamepad, in part to emphasize it as a separate entity to the Wii in the public's consciousness.

Pretty interesting, though I wish that they would just speed up with releasing more VC games in general seeing as how it still doesn't have N64 or GC games

Why is this on Wii U and not 3DS? Furthermore, why not gamecube instead? This decision really does not make sense to me.

It's probably easier for them


...this is kind of disappointing though

Could be because you can already play DS games on a 3DS and there's probably not many people with a 3DS who didn't previously own a DS and have a ton of games for it. I would have also preferred Gamecube games though.

It does make sense for them to do this. They're not having much trouble selling 3DS's and they already play DS games. I'm also sure a lot of people would love to be able to play DS games on the TV. This may give some people incentive to buy a Wii U, which they're really trying to push sales for. Yes, Gamecube games would make more sense and would be awesome, but DS games will be nice too.

This isn't a big deal for me. I just hope N64 games will eventually reach the Wii U VC.

I would have preferred them to release GC and N64 games on VC too.

hm…never play any DS games before in my life.

So, I have no idea what good DS games would be for Wii U. This could be a turning point for me as previously, I bought Wii for VC. Later, I could purchase a Wii U for DS & GBA VC.
