    I've seen some retro games on the Switch. Unfortunately it seems as if Nintendo has decided not to put a separate category for retro games on the Switch's e-shop.

    Although, for whatever reason, the most recent update for the Switch allows it to "see and run" the Gamecube controller device from the WiiU if you plug it in.

    That's not really the same as the Virtual Console we've had in the past. It is more a carrot to toss Nintendo twenty bucks for their online service.

    Nintendo does Nintendo. It's amusing that Microsoft and Sony are obsessing over 4K and VR while Nintendo is going to make a killing with fucking cardboard. My 8 year old self would have loved this.

    Here's the (much, much shorter) announcement video from Nintendo.
