Nintendo DS titles to join Wii U Virtual Console line-up


Nintendo’s Satoru Iwata has announced that the company plan to bring Nintendo DS titles to the Wii U Virtual Console. The system, which has been the company’s most successful handheld in its illustrious history, joins the service’s planned portfolio that includes Nintendo 64 and Game Boy Advance.

Whilst no timescale was given as to when these would start releasing, Iwata presented Dr. Kawashima’s Brain Training as an example.

“On top of that, after spending more than a year on the research and development theme of taking advantage of the GamePad’s features, we are now sure that we can solve the technical problem of displaying Virtual Console software from Nintendo DS on the GamePad,” Iwata discussed.

“The dual-screen Nintendo DS, one of which is a touch screen, has a very strong software lineup, and so we plan to add the Virtual Console titles from Nintendo DS software to the future Virtual Console lineup for Wii U.”
