Your Wii U Virtual Console Games Will Eventually Become Playable On Your Nintendo 3DS?

My Nintendo News

Nintendo Force magazine writer Emily Rogers says that the Virtual Console of both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS will eventually have some compatibility. Supposedly, in the future, consumers who own a Wii U and Nintendo 3DS will be able to play their purchased Virtual Console titles on either of the two platforms. However, according to Rogers, there are noticeable restrictions, which are listed below.

  • Not every Virtual Console game will allow this.
  • A Virtual Console game would have to release on both Wii U Virtual Console and Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console for this to work.
  • You have to pay a discount price to transfer a Wii U Virtual Console game to Nintendo 3DS. It would be just like how you pay a discount price to play a Wii Virtual Console game on Wii U.

The Wii U Virtual Console officially launched yesterday and, so far, includes only NES and Super NES games. Nintendo promises that, in the future, Game Boy Advance and Nintendo 64 titles will be added to the service. When they are released on Wii U, Nintendo 64 and Game Boy Advance games will feature off-TV play, which means you’ll be able to play them on your GamePad controller – without the need for a TV screen. Let’s hope Nintendo confirms that Nintendo GameCube games will also be added to the Wii U Virtual Console.
