Is there a way to stream our 3DS onto the Wii U?

    So I know we can stream our 3DS to our PC thanks to NTR, but I'm curious if we can at all do the same thing on our Wii U with our 3DS? I mean I'm pretty sure at this time no solution like that exists, but would it be theoretically possible? Seems like if we could get the program that runs on our PC to stream our 3DS via NTR to run our Wii U as a homebrew app or whatever that it should be possible. But I don't know all the intricacies of how all of that works, so I could be way wrong, I do understand that we can stream our 3DS on the Xbox One, so I would hope the Wii U would be possible as well. If it is possible, would anyone at all be interested in trying to make it happen?

    I ask because it would be pretty dang neat. Not to mention that the 3DS is pretty much the only Nintendo system that the Wii U can't run in some capacity (aside from the Switch of course).

    That would be cool, since the Wii U has a second screen + touchscreen that could be used.

    Well I doubt the Wii U's controllers could be used as a controller in such a scenario. I figure it would be like how you can stream your 3DS on your computer now, so you'd still play with the 3DS, but the screens would be mirrored onto the TV (or just the top screen while you still look at your 3DS to see the bottom screen). But hey if they could get that advanced with it, using the Wii U gamepad as a bottom screen would be fantastic, but probably not something I'd be holding my breath on.

    It would have been sweet if they had originally cross released 3ds games this way with the Wii U. I wonder if it would have boosted Wii U sales or decreased the 3ds's.
