What do you think, could this be a great idea to improve wii u sales and cover the absence of some games like sf4 or doa or jrpg that are on 3ds or ds?
As you remember the gameboy player was released during the gba life and read gba gbc and gb games.
Can we ask this to nintendo? or is it too early?

The only good game on 3DS is RE Revelaitions but you can already get the better HD version on WiiU anyway... No point really ;)

Not sure how it would work given the 3DS's dual-screen setup and touch screen. Even with the gamepad, just doesn't sound like it would work to me.

Basically the gamepad has the same function of the second touch screen of ds 3ds, The first screen of tv corresponds to the first screen of 3ds ds which isn't a touch screen.

Well I think there are many other games good on 3ds, also masterpieces like fire emblem or luigi's mansion, and also all the ds games :)
I would be the first to buy a similar peripheral, it could cost less of a 3ds standard

Would work with a lot of games, but the problem would be like this

The screens are just far too separated for most games, methinks.

it would be compatible only with a part of games (excluding the similars to yoshi's island ds), but I think that it would work well for the most part
for example it would work well for games like castlevania fire emblem street fighter 4 doa etrian odissey etc.. They could also create a only digital distribution to avoid the bad working games.
But I think that games like yoshi ds, which uses the two screen like one vertical, are only the 10% ?

If you upscale 3ds visuals, you would notice they aren't all that HD and would look a bit pants on a 47inch Plasma. They're fine for the little screen and should remain there. Plus portable games have a different pacing to Console games- 10 minutes to an hour bursts as opposed to hour plus sessions wandering around sandbox levels.

but, for me, this isn't about cheap 3DS playing(especially because I have one already :p ) it's about accelerating the parts you don't like AND the parts you want to have fast action! and I hope it's the same for the others, I see no other reason to make a game get ugly upscaling it other than the sheer speed you can get playing 3DS stuff in a WiiU....

This, even on a 22inch HD screen a 3DS game would look horrible. Just buy a 3DS if you want 3DS games they are totally worth it.
