Wii U Will Soon Be Able to Play DS Games

Nintendo is struggling. This is something Nintendo fans like myself have had a very hard time swallowing lately. The Year of Luigi was a massive success for the 3DS, but the Wii U was left in the dust. As 2014 heats up, everybody is looking at Nintendo, waiting for them to spike sales of their newest home console. During their investors meeting yesterday, Nintendo said they think they have an answer to the Wii U's troubles, or at least part of an answer. Nintendo has decided to look to mobile to help generate Wii U sales, but not mobile in the form of a smartphone, mobile in the form of their top selling handheld, the DS. Soon, your favorite DS games will be available on the Wii U virtual console! It is currently unknown how they will be played, whether it will be 2 screens on the gamepad or the top screen will be the TV and the bottom screen will be the gamepad. Whether this will help Wii U sales or not, the DS definitely has some kick-ass games I'd like to playthrough again. More info in the video.
