    i'm browsing the eshop through my web browser. did a narrow search results to Wii U titles only, and i'm seeing some 3DS/DS titles listed (Phantom Hourglass, Spirit Tracks, i think i saw Phoenix Wright a few months back). are these titles converted to work on Wii U, or just using it as a frontend for 3DS purchases?

    NO COFFEI!
    Yeah it's called virtual console. Pretty much a practically perfect emulator by Nintendo. They have certain fames like those ones.

    Those titles are running through an emulator made for the wii u. They are VC for the wii u. the 3ds doesn't sell those titles.

    yeah, looked at a page, wasn't expecting VC of DS titles. i figured it would only go as far as N64/GBA. thanks
