Since Nintendo has released a handful of GBA games on the 3DS Virtual Console (though only to 3DS Ambassadors), they likely have a similar idea of releasing circa 2002 games on the Wii U too. This is especially likely because of a previous Nintendo Life article from last year that @GamecubeMan32 pointed out below.

From what i've heard, however, discs are more complicated to replicate/port compared to cartridges, probably because of storage space. Do you think it really could be possible with the Wii U one day?

Yeah Nintendo can do it, all they have to do is make a GCN VC controller.

Yep and I can't wait to buy the missed GCN games like Tales of symphonia, and RE2 and 3. Of course I'll rebuy games I love like Super Mario Sunshine, SSBM, Pikmn, and Wind Waker

I'm not holding my breath. They'd have to come out with a controller that has analog triggers, and with the Pro Controller not having them I just don't see it happening.

I can easily see it happening. It will probably take a while but the pro controller would be wonderful for this.

It's funny that when games like Super Mario 64 came out in 1996, people were likely thinking how that was the most advanced thing they've seen video games do and might have also thought that that type of advancement would never be topped only to be shattered about 8 years later when it was released on a portable system with better graphics, similar to SNES and GBA.

I'm sorry, but what?

[quote=38447]I'll believe it, when I see it. But if they do, I can also see them having DS games on the 3DS eshop too, which would be AWESOME!!![/quot

Isn't the 3DS already backwards compatible with DS games?...

Not to be the voice of doom, but Nintendo seems pretty stretched out these days, and I don't see the company prioritizing this. Fast forward to 2014, people are screaming for downloadable GameCube games, and Nintendo responds by releasing one or two a year. People say Wii U's VC is a fail.

Look at the Wii's Virtual Console library right now, sure there are some games that have been left out, but there still sure are a lot, maybe some people would rather have some games than no games, unless it depends on what games they are.

I'd love to see the entire TimeSplitters trilogy re-released with HD graphics and online play. The GameCube missed out on the first Timesplitters game, and Nintendo was never able to get a decent online service for the console.

That controller looks excellent, but somehow...familiar.
