The Nintendo eShop is Nintendo's current online shop service. The Nintendo eShop was first made available on the system through a system update released on launch day via a wireless Internet connection. With the eShop, users can download exclusive Wii U software, demos and videos, as well as view information on upcoming games. Virtual Console games for NES, SNES, and Game Boy Advance are available, while Nintendo has confirmed that Nintendo DS, and Nintendo 64 games will be added in the future. These games can be played on the Wii U GamePad via Off-TV Play; games transferred over from a Wii console do not support Off-TV Play nor do they support other Wii U Virtual Console features. The eShop is also available on the Nintendo 3DS.
