Starting today, Nintendo 64 and Nintendo DS games will be available on the Wii U Virtual Console. In North America, Nintendo are kicking things off with Super Mario 64 and Yoshi’s Island DS.

 

While playing Nintendo DS games, the TV and GamePad combination will provide various options for dual-screen layouts, while all Nintendo 64 games that supported the Rumble Pack will continue rumbling away on Wii U controllers.

 

Meanwhile, upcoming Virtual Console releases include WarioWare: Touched! for Nintendo DS on April 9th and Donkey Kong 64 for Nintendo 64 on April 16th.
