Virtual Console N64 and DS titles coming to the eShop.

Super Mario 64 and Yoshi’s Island DS are the first titles on their respective consoles.

Nintendo has announced the line-up of upcoming N64 and DS titles to the eShop. It is filled with classics and some interesting choices.

Star Fox 64 3D, one of the Nintendo 64 titles
remade for the Nintendo 3DS.
The Nintendo 64 is regarded historically as the console that shaped gaming on a 3D space, something that’s used to this day, and the 3DS remakes of N64 games are some of the strongest titles on the system. So it’s no surprise that we’d eventually see Nintendo release its classics on the Wii U eShop.
The first N64 title to come out on the eShop is Super Mario 64, available now, to be followed by Donkey Kong 64 April 16 and Paper Mario April 30th.

Perhaps we’ll see this remake in the VC too?
As we mentioned before, the Nintendo DS is the other console making its debut on the Wii U eShop. Yoshi’s Island DS available now.
The next titles to come up are WarioWare Touched! and Yoshi Touch & Go, both April 9. Then, on April 23, Mario Kart DS.
Both Virtual Consoles will give you different customization options of both camera and screen settings.
What do you think of this line-up? What titles are you hoping make it to the VC? Let us know in the comment section bellow.
