N64 And DS Games Launch on Wii U eShop; More Coming Throughout April

Jason Clement

Nintendo announced in this week's Nintendo Direct that Nintendo 64 and DS games would finally be hitting the Wii U eShop. Super Mario 64 and Yoshi's Island DS are the first two games that have been released so far, with more on the way every week.


The pricing on each both categories of games will differ, with N64 titles ranging from $10-13, and DS titles ranging from $7-10. However—similar to previous VC games on the Wii U eShop—if you happen to own a title already and have transferred it from your Wii to your Wii U, you can rebuy the Wii U version of that VC title for $2 (which will net you the ability to upgrade the game for use on Gamepad and customizable controls).


DS games in particular will make use of both the Gamepad and the TV screen to display both DS screens, in addition to having multiple viewing modes for the player (with some having both screens appear entirely on the Gamepad in different ways).


Here's a look at the release list for the rest of April for N64 and DS titles.


April 9

  • Yoshi's Touch & Go (DS)
  • WarioWare Touched! (DS)


April 16

  • Donkey Kong 64 (N64)


April 23

  • Mario Kart DS (DS)


April 30
