The Virtual Console is a section available for the Wii on the online service, the Wii Shop Channel. It was launched at the time the Wii was first released in North America in 2006. It was soon released for the Nintendo 3DS in 2011, and for the Wii U in 2012. Virtual Console was released by Nintendo as a way to legally own a past Nintendo game without downloading it illegally online. It is currently unknown if the Virtual Console will be available on the Nintendo Switch.
