@TriforceBun DK Jungle Climber has a bit of a learning curve and can occasionally be somewhat frustrating, but I remember it mostly being pretty fun once you get the hang of it. I've heard good things about Wii U's DS emulation options, but if you're worried about that I'm pretty sure the game's GBA predecessor, King of Swing, is also available on Wii U. But I've never played that one and don't know what the differences are.
The DS emulation on Wii U is really amazing, I wouldn't hesitate for a millisecond on playing any DS game (if it was something I wanted to play, a category which Jungle Climber does not fall into). I really wish Nintendo would just dump the whole library on there, they'd make like $200 off of me the first day.
