See what Wii games would look like on the 3DS

Want to see some 3D screenshots of Wii games running on the 3DS? Then download this win.zip file, copy the contents onto a SD card, insert the SD card into a 3DS, and there you go. It’ll take a little while, as there are hundreds of screenshots here, but it’s worth it.

I was especially pleased to see several Wii games that are bursting with creativity on the inside, but come off as a little scraggly on the outside. I’m talking about games like Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom, Sin and Punishment 2, Fragile Dreams, and No More Heroes 2. Love them all, but they’ve always been ugly ducklings, at least by home console standards. With the aid of the 3DS, they all look genuinely impressive.

Then there’s shots of Wii games that have always looked awesome, like Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Muramasa, and Super Mario Galaxy. There’s even a few GameCube games thrown in there for good measure, like F-Zero GX and Luigi’s Mansion. All classics, and all look even more attractive in 3D.

I know the 3DS is already inundated with ports, but after seeing these screens, I’m dying for a few of these Wii/Gamecube titles to make the jump to the 3DS, particularly Fragile Dreams and No More Heroes 2. How about you? You up for some more Wii-to-3DS ports?
