Downloadable Nintendo DS games coming to 3DS as My Nintendo Rewards
Both Miitomo and My Nintendo have launched in Japan today, we’ve been sneaking in with our Japanese NNID and checking it out and found some great news. (We’ll have more on Miitomo later tonight).
Nintendo DS games are coming to the 3DS! On the Japanese My Nintendo site there is currently a reward for WarioWare Touched! We at first through this might be an error or misprint but in the small ‘terms and conditions’ text it explains how it’s going to work.
The games will work exactly like DSiWare games, this means they’re not Virtual Console titles as they’re running on ‘hardware’ and are not emulated. No save and restore points or manual like a Virtual Console release either.
This also means that it will use up the local memory on your machine, just like DSiWare games currently do. Wario Ware Touched will take up 214 blocks.
