Nintendo 64 and Nintendo DS games finally come to the Wii U Virtual Console
Well its about time! Nintendo has today announced that both the Nintendo 64 and Nintendo DS will finally come to the Wii U Virtual Console… today!
Four games will be available to purchase later today, the DS games are Mario Kart DS and Ware Ware Touched! The Nintendo 64 games are Super Mario 64 and for the first time ever on the Virtual Console, Donkey Kong 64!
The Nintendo DS games have several display options, you can put one screen on the GamePad, one on the TV or both of the GamePad. Similarly Nintendo 64 games have a number of control options and can be mapped any way you want on the GamePad. You can also play them Off-TV now as well for extra fun, the rumble pak is also enabled in Donkey Kong 64.
Like the older systems you can also bring across your other Nintendo 64 games you purchased on the Wii Virtual Console and upgrade them for a fee to work fully on the Wii U.
We’re waiting on final pricing from Nintendo Australia for all of these games and the upgrade fee.
