I would buy DS games on the eShop, but I guess it would be too confusing with the mix of 3DS games and now DS games? Isn't the DS games have to only be on retail than on the eShop?

Depends on the game, but it is kinda pointless right now. Maybe on the 3DS's successor.

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Yuuki, and for some odd reason, Megumi (School Rumble)
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Amber and Xiao Pai from Rune Factory 4.

It might be confusing for people who cannot read but those same people more than likely wouldn't have a payment method so it wouldn't matter.

I wouldn't because I am a physical collector. Kinda off-topic: Why do people want "NINTENDO DS" games on "WII U"? I know that the "Gamepad" have touchscreen, but handheld games are meant to be on handhelds. That's what they're made for, no? Like the "Game Boy Advance" games on "Wii U".

Who are you?

Might be possible to run them with an exact scaling factor. (Holding on select makes them too small - without it then it looks awful on my 3DS XL for pixel based stuff).

The resolution is only a little bit less than say the SNES horizontally.

There is a fair few DS games and GBA games that are pretty similar to SNES games in many ways.

In many SNES games the scanlines make up part of the shading people don't seem to be bothered about that problem. (A DS game doesn't have those issues).

Getting back to this I want - Retro Game Challenge. (Don't see why they cannot do something like that when its used price is so high).

I wouldn't mind but I'd only get games which now have inflated prices for physical copies and I can't even think of any that I want right now anyway. I managed to get TWEWY for $20 which was awesome and that's probably the last DS game I really wanted, point being they would really need to price games competitively to justify a digital copy of something that can already be gotten for a great price

I'd buy some GBA games (like Ninja Five-O) so yeah, I would buy some well-priced DS games.

Depends on the cost. Many DS games are very cheap now. So why download something you can pick up at retail for much less?

At least the GB and NES games have save states that put them above their cartridge releases as something worth paying more for.

Edgey, Gumshoe, Godot, Sissel, Larry, then Mia, Franziska, Maggie, Kay and Lynne.

Not to mention there are very few NES games that are not better on the PC Engine anyway so if you are going to spend any real money you might as well get the best version. (Or the Arcade board if it is available reasonably).

waiting for Nintendo to release a new handheld

Nintendo waited too long I am no longer interested. (Bought a new DSi XL and a cheap used DS Lite). Got a whole stack of awesome games I couldn't put up with on the 3DS XL.

I use my Wii U as a handheld and only play games on the TV when the game has to use both screens.
