Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Will the NX be able to play the 3DS/VC games on your account?

Tagged games:

With Nintendo pushing their brand new account system and with the NX coming soon, I'm wondering if the NX would be able to play the 3DS games I bought on the eShop. I mean, the NX will be more powerful than the 3DS, and they want to push digital sales, so making backwards compatibility through this would make sense.

And while we're at it, will Nintendo stop making people buy a copy of their VC games for each piece of hardware so we can get them on the NX just by having them on our account?



You know it deserves the GOTY.

thats always how it works on nintendo plattforms so far. 



Probably not, unfortunately.



"Just for comparison Uncharted 4 was 20x bigger than Splatoon 2. This shows the huge difference between Sony's first-party games and Nintendo's first-party games."

Nintendo love to sell you the same game, you already own on 1 system, again anew on a later system.



Depends on what the system is but there is a good chance it will

[3DS] Winter Playtimes [Wii U]

Nintendo might double down all of the flaws they couldn't fix with the Wii U and 3DS, including cross-buy. They're already showing signs of trying to unify its products under the Nintendo Account thing. I'd be surprised if you couldn't use your 3DS games on NX.



bet: lost

Maybe if Nintendo is true to themselves about all this unifying business.



I wish they would. Being able to play handheld games on consoles would fill in the gaps.

Plus could be the only way to solve the pokemon on console drought.

Also I should not be forced to buy any games over again.
