    I was seeing that it is possible to emulate the Nintendo DS on the Wii with the DeSmume Wii (even though it is very slow, it is playable for some 2D games), so ... I was wondering if the same would be possible in 3DS for Wii U, it's possible or Wii U is to weak to hold on the 3DS ?



    Another thing I was wondering is if it would be possible to stream from the 3DS to the Wii U, as is possible with the Xbox One



    or even streaming from Citra to the Wii U and control 3DS games with the Wii U GamePad, Pro Controller etc...

    PS: Sorry for my English, Brazilian Here.

    Simply put no. If it can barely emulate DS games it has no hope of emulating the next generation up.

    1) That's a Wii emulator, the Wii U can run DS games at full speed (see the official Virtual Console emulator)
    2) The DS and 3DS are completely different. It's so much harder to run a 3DS game well compared to a DS game, even on a pretty decent PC.

    There's no technical reason for which a NTR streaming receiver can't be written, but... hey it's just a wiiu after all

    An NTR streamer is feasible. That's still completely different from emulation though.

    NTR-CFW, it's a set of patches that allow you to do some things on a 3DS like running plugins or debugging, and using cheats. n3DS only video streaming to a PC is one of the features it has. I guess someone ported the streaming client to Xbox One.

    When even modern Android phones are not powerful enough to emulate the 3DS although they already share the same CPU architecture (ARM) then the good old weak Wii U (PowerPC) will never do it.
    I can however see the Switch do it at some point as the Switch OS is some kind of 3DS OS 2.0 and a thing like Nintendont (because the Wii was a GC 2.0) could be done for the Switch to execute 3DS binaries and redirect their syscalls.
