Topic: Best DS games from the Wii U virtual console?

Posts 1 to 6 of 6


Just curious if anyone has a favorite DS game they've gotten off the Wii U's virtual console. Hopefully something that is not just a good game, but make interesting use of touch and other DS features ported to the Wii U.

The Wii U is still the world's best console. Buy one today!


Animal Crossing Wild World works surprisingly well as a DS virtual console game, and you don't really miss anything from not having multiplayer. So I totally recommend that.

Another favorite of mine is Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Eplorers of Sky. Though it doesn't really have many DS gimmicks.

I'm pretty sure they release Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky on the VC, which is one of my favorite games of all time. It's not all that interesting in terms of additional features though.

If you want a title that pushed the DS to it's max, try Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass or Spirit Tracks. Spirit Track is the better title fixing most of PH's issues, but it's also the sequel.

Kirby Mass Attack (I think) and definitely Kirby Canvas Curse are the only other touch heavy games I remember coming over. Oh, and the Pokemon Ranger series is very touch heavy, though light on any other features.



@embison I'd say Advance Wars Dual Strike for one. I also agree with the games mentioned above.

And just in case you want to see the entire list of DS titles on Wii U, here's the complete list.

I gotta say, I played the Pokémon mystery dungeon game that was on the wiki ds virtual console, and one of those Mario and Luigi rpg ones. (But that one might have been on the game boy advance) I liked them both very well, but honestly I found it hard to play with that thing they did where you played on a little ds. I dunno if you could fix it or not, but I found it annoying.



I know this thread might get locked for necromancy but I might as well say Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon, while not the best game in the series by any means, is definitely worth getting on Wii U VC. It's difficult to find it on DS for a good price these days, and the VC version also includes the additional weapon shop that was originally accessible via WiFi.
