Do you remember when Nintendo said that we would be able to control our Wii U's with our Nintendo 3DS's? I want to know what has happened to that, and why are we not able to do it?

I've had a tough life with lots of ups and downs, but I'm working on improving it.

@DarkLloyd I Figured that, but I wanted this topic to be more like "Hey, what's your opinion on this" kind of thing, so maybe I worded my first message wrong.

Nintendo lied to us. It will never happen, all I want is to play my 3DS games on my Wii-U.

@3DSonic They said they would think about it for the future.

I think they said at some point that the next Smash Bros game would allow you to use your 3DS as a controller. Also, isn't it possible to play a local multiplayer game between the 3DS and Wii U in Monster Hunter?

I don't know about you guys, but I wouldn't want my games that were made for a small screen to be on a screen up to ten times the size.
As for the topic, what's the point? I can't really see any point in it.

It is indeed, so such a feature is already taking shape. Nintendo basically said you could use the 3DS in conjunction with the WiiU in many ways. And that is exactly true. But that doesn't mean they'll let you play 3DS games on the WiiU, or anything else specific. I think they want to find a good fit for using a 3DS with the WiiU. Like another Four Swords game, perhaps.

Baaaasically, they said it can be done, but that doesn't mean it will be done.

I remember them saying that it is a possibility but I never heard them say that we would be able to let alone that they were working on it. Besides wouldn't that basically be the same as using the gamepad?

I thought this rumour went back further to pre-release scuttle-butt released late 2011 / early 2012 because I don't remember reading that particular NL article.

Kinda meh quality because phone, but thats on a like 47" TV? I think. Idk.
Not too terrible, but not great. Kinda weird playing the 3DS without looking at the 3DS.

I guess you missed the part when it said it was a rumor and to take it with a grain of salt. Also if you noticed Nintendo didnt say anything about it it was just some French site that was talking about it.
