27/27: Part 25: 5 games I want to see on the DS virtual console

Just my luck I was scrambling around trying to figure out what I'm going to write this blog about , that I find this: http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2014/01/29/ds-virtual-console-heading-to-wii-u.aspx and I was like "Yeah, that'll work."

So, here are 5 DS games that I want to see on Wii U.

 

The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks

Spirit Tracks was my first Zelda game, and it's still one of my favorites. For a brief moment I pondered on whether to put in this game, or its prequel, LOZ: Phantom Hourglass. But the more I thought about it, the more sense Spirit Tracks made. It was just a more polished, well rounded experience, not to mention good fun in its own right. Up until the release of Link Between Worlds (*sigh* which I still need to play) I would have argued that this was the best Portable Zelda game.

 

The World Ends With U You

Never played this game. But I put it on this list for 3 reasons. 1). I like to make puns. 2). I want to play this game. 3). It just makes sense to release this game considering its rarity and how much people still like it.

 

Civilization Revolution

The Civilization franchise is a strategy genre favorite, but if you want to play a Civ game on a Nintendo console, up to this point, Civ Rev on the DS was your only option. Another big plus to this being on a home console rather than a portable is the fact that it makes Wi-Fi features (which this game does have) much more accessible.  While it's not nearly as deep an experience as say Civ V, and one of this titles biggest strength is its portability, it's still a Civilization game.

 

Dragon Quest IX

While I enjoyed Dragon Quest IX on the whole, I was disappointed  at its wireless features (specifically how finicky they were) similar to CivRev, being on a Console will help remedy that situation.

 

Infinite Space

I always wanted this game on Wii U, and while a remake would have preferred a remake, this would be fine too (heck, this may even encourage a remake.) While it's not exactly infinite, this is an ENORMUS game by DS standards; so much so that I wonder how they ever got it to fit on the card. With incredibly deep customization and story this is definitely my favorite DS RPG (if not game on the platform)

 

Well, those are my 5 picks. Sound off in the comments below and throw out some of your own. See Y'all tomorrow.
