Nintendo’s Q3 2013 investor’s briefing has offered plenty of insights…many of which we’ll bring to the forefront once it’s all done and it’s been properly translated. These briefings are always fun—they answer important questions like when we can expect “X,” and they may even offer a surprise twist or two. Chief among said surprise twists—a piece of news we’re sure you’d like to know about before the translating and further speculating even begins: Nintendo DS games are coming to the Wii U Virtual Console.

Virtual Console | Nintendo DS Comes to Wii U

There’s a shot from the presentation itself, of Brain Age. I’m sure there’s an entire library of Nintendo DS games worth tapping into. New opportunities for the Virtual Console can only mean good things…right? Again, news from the Q3 2013 investor’s briefing is still coming out in droves. I wonder if a Nintendo Direct is around the corner or not…then again, I’m probably not alone.

Which Nintendo DS games would you like to see playable on Wii U? Be sure to let us know. More from the briefing as it happens.
