Bringing DS Titles to Wii U is the Perfect Strategy to Expand the Console's Library

If there's one thing the DS is known for most, it would be it's almighty sales figures. There's many things that attributed towards that success, with the most prominent being the console's huge software library. On the other hand, one of the hurdles that has caused the Wii U to slip is undeniably the lack of software the console has really suffered from.

In a recent investor meeting, Nintendo bought forward a bizarre new idea, being to introduce Nintendo DS titles to the Wii U Virtual Console. How exactly this will work is a little bit mystery as of now, and we don't know exactly when this will happen. However, we do know that it was a fantastic idea on Nintendo's part.

Provided they release enough DS games on the service. And they price them accordingly. Nobody is going to want to pay $15-$20 for DS games.

They should add 3DS support :)

3DS is blamed by many, that nintendo did not put enough effort in Wii U. A 3D TV is owned by a lot of people by now. If you dont own one, not a problem, 2DS works with all 3DS titles :)

Nintendo did sell a lot of 3DSs until now, could be more, but it would definitely help the Wii U, to get the new goodies of the 3DS and I am not sure, if it would hurt the 3DS sales, because you can still only play at home, in a way it may push both systems.

If would be like Vita TV, just with a Wii U, a real homeconsole.

That would be nice. I want to play A Link between Worlds, but dont want to buy a 3DS just or that. I am not a big fan of handhelds, doesnt matter which kind...

They need to keep their promises in order first. Bring the N64, stop with the NES for now. Don't waste VC assets on games with very little following, unless it has a strong cult status. There has to be a solid reason for not releasing key games on the VC, only Nintendo knows. Keep your treasures close I suppose.

they should just release digital DS games on 3DS where they'll make money.... I know they think they can help sell Wii U's and that the 3DS does not need the help but the Wii U is a loss cause, they should concentrate in making money and 3DS is where the money is
