Wii U Virtual Console Getting N64 and Nintendo DS Games

Lots of custom control options let you use your Wii U in new ways.

During today's April Nintendo Direct, the developer revealed that Nintendo 64 and Nintendo DS games will start making their way to the Wii U Virtual Console.

To accommodate the unique control setups of those systems, you'll have several customization options for button layouts and (for the DS) how the game will display across the Wii U GamePad and your TV screen.

The price will be $10 to $13 for N64 games. If you've bought a title previously on the Wii Virtual Console, the update will only cost $2. Nintendo DS games will cost between $7 and $10.

The first set of titles available immediately following the Direct presentation are:

  • Yoshi's Island -- $10
  • Mario 64 -- $10

Titles we'll get later down the line include:

  • Donkey Kong 64 -- 4/16 -- $10
  • Mario Kart DS -- 4/23 -- $10
  • Paper Mario -- 4/30 -- $10
  • Yoshi Touch & Go 4/9 -- $10
  • WarioWare Touched -- 4/9 -- $10
