Question from Metroid_Lover

Can I play my Wii VC games on the VC 3DS?

I have a few VC games, I got on my Wii.

Are any of them compatible with the 3DS, like any NES or gameboy games?

If they are, do they run off the SD card, or are temporary till you turnoff the 3DS?

Metroid_Lover provided additional details:

So, let's get this straight, the VC for both the Wii and the 3DS are separate?

If I want to play a game I already bought on the Wii-VC, I have to re-buy it on the 3DS-VC?

Am I correct on this?

Is there any VC games that are connected (pay on one, can play on the other system) or plans in the future for this, that we know of?

Accepted Answer

No, you can only play VC games that were downloaded from the store to the system you want to play them on. While Sony might have a service that can support that kind of transfer between console and portable, Nintendo doesn't.

However, Nintendo will eventually offer NES VC games to the 3DS store, so you can play those on it so long as you're willing to pay for the games again.
