Mario vs. Donkey Kong Wii U demo showcases Nintendo Web Framework at GDC 2014

I must admit I’m not all that familiar with the Mario vs. Donkey Kong series, but I do know the original was released on the GBA, then re-released on the Nintendo 3DS as part of the Ambassador program (which means I played it, but not for long: I no longer have my Ambassador system).

Fans of the series may get excited over a demo that appeared on the show floor at this year’s Game Developer Conference. As you can see from the video above, a Mario vs. Donkey Kong Wii U demo was fully playable as an example of Nintendo’s Web Framework technology (a technology that allows eShop developers to more easily make games for Wii U). The demo suggests a possible release later on of a full Mario vs. Donkey Kong game. Nothing is official yet, but it’s fun to hope.
