Best of both worlds

Nin­tendo Switch ex­pected to sup­port GameCube games via Vir­tual Con­sole.

GAX (Malaysia) - - NEWSWIRE -

If you needed an­other le­git­i­mate rea­son to get your hands on the Nin­tendo Switch, this would be it: Three sep­a­rate source sources have con­firmed to Eurogamer that the Switch will be able to han­dle Gam GameCube games th through its Vir­tual Con­sole ser­vice. As a mat­ter of fact, Ni Nin­tendo is said to be prep­ping three GameCube ti­tles for the Switch: Su­per Mario Sun­shine, Su­per Smash Bros. Melee, and Luigi's Man­sion. Word on the vine is that An­i­mal Cross­ing will likely be made avail­able as well. No con­fir­ma­tion on whether ti­tles be­long­ing to other legacy Nin­tendo plat­forms – in­clud­ing the NES, SNES, N64, and Nin­tendo DS – will be of­fered on the Switch’s Vir­tual Con­sole, though. But the re­port by Eurogamer did men­tion about the pos­si­bil­ity of an up­grade pro­gram that would al­low you to ‘up­grade’ the Vir­tual Con­sole games you’ve pre­vi­ously pur­chased for a small fee, ren­der­ing them com­pat­i­ble with the Switch’s Vir­tual Con­sole. The Switch’s Vir­tual Con­sole is re­port­edly be­ing worked on by the Nin­tendo Euro­pean Re­search and De­vel­op­ment (NERD) team, who were most re­cently in­volved with the de­vel­op­ment of the NES Clas­sic Edi­tion that sold like hot cakes.
