Time for 3DS on Wii U

 

 

Cordova, TN; October 1, in the year of our Lord 2014--Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is putting their foot down and telling Nintendo - “Time for 3DS on Wii U.” They can also include Nintendo DS games into that category. There is something great about being able to play a hand held video game on the larger home television screen. With the TV screen, and Wii U Gamepad it should be a simple thing to emulate the Nintendo DS/Nintendo 3DS video games on the Wii U. Nintendo has a history of letting families play their hand helds on the home consoles.

Don’t believe me on the whole history thing? Let me refresh your memory with two devices families continue to enjoy to this day. The Game Boy Player allows families to play Gameboy Advance video games on the Gamecube. The Super Game Boy allows families to play Gameboy, and Gameboy Color games on their Super NES home console. This tradition went quiet when the Nintendo DS was released. Most of us at Family Friendly Gaming figured it was the whole two screen issue. Technically it could be emulated on one screen. But Nintendo has not released it to the public yet. Why?

Family Friendly Gaming is no stranger to making bold stances within the video game industry. Maybe this is another bold stance. Maybe it is time someone speaks up. Nintendo needs to release a way for families to play their Nintendo DS, and Nintendo 3DS hand held cartridges on the Wii U. Look Sony is already doing cross play and allowing games on the Playstation 3, and Playstation 4 to be playable on the Playstation Vita. Nintendo is not innovating any more. They are following. They need to catch up, and quick if they want to be around for a few more home console generations.

How hard would it be for Nintendo to whip up some USB device to allow families to play their favorite Nintendo DS/Nintendo 3DS hand held games on the Wii U? They will make it up in sales. The previous devices are adored to this very day. Family Friendly Gaming uses them in a variety of different ways. In retro reviews, video capture, and more. These are handy, helpful devices that make our lives easier. We are not selfish though. We do not want one just for us. We want the entire video game industry to be given the opportunity to purchase such a device.

God bless,
