Yep you read that title right! The wait it seems is over, for Nintendo to release a VC of sorts for DS games will finally be making their way to a Wii U eShop near you. This news comes out of Nintendo's Investor meeting, where the company attempted to explain and atone for the admittedly slow start of the Wii U brand.
The details are slim at this point, but Nintendo did release a few images for what Wii U Tablet DS gaming could be like which can viewed on their blog. So what do you guys think? Ready to delve into some Spirit Tracks, Dark Dawn, and Mario Kart on your Wii U Tablet?
On the heels of an admittedly disappointing Wii U sales report during the investor's meeting that took place last night, Nintendo has shed some light on what it plans to do to remedy the situation. Among those plans, they let it drop that Mario Kart 8--the highly anticipated new iteration in the Mario Kart franchise, will be launching this May on the Wii U platform via retail and eShop.
“We will announce the specific release dates of each software title and the release of new titles in other opportunities such as Nintendo Direct, but today we would like to announce that a key title for Wii U this year, “Mario Kart 8,” is scheduled to be released globally in May. To create huge momentum, we would like to ensure that the release of titles such as “Mario Kart 8” is not a one-off event.”
There you have it, guys. Nintendo has already pulled out a couple of big guns for the Wii U, but this is looking to be the start of an absolutely devastating lineup for 2014....
Now I want to make perfectly clear that i say this with a massive grain of salt, but the rumor mill has presented another insane leak about Nintendo's next move, this time in terms of consoles: both handheld and TERMINAL.
The report comes from GamingRealm (legit right?) and specs are below, but remember; this is so farfetch'd that it's likely SUPER FALSE, but hey its fun to pretend right?
Thanks to our own Princess_Eevee9 who shared a very interesting piece this morning regarding Super Smash Bros for Wii U and 3DS, we have a *so far* credible rumor for this upcoming title.
Bolded points are points that have been proven true so far.

The Translator Leak (1/10/14)
*Rosalina is the only Mario newcomer.
*Waluigi and Toad were at once considered, but Waluigi remains an Assist Trophy, and Toad a move for Peach.
*Bowser Junior, Paper Mario and Daisy were never considered. Bowser Junior was planned to be an Assist Trophy, but was scrapped.
