N64 and Nintendo DS games available on Wii U Virtual Console from today

Nintendo has announced that it’s bringing Nintendo 64 and DS games to the Wii U via its virtual console service beginning today.

The virtual game service will allow you to configure your Wii U controller to better match the layout of the N64 games or the DS. Some games will use the main TV screen for both screens and others will utilize both.
