2010 = Year of Super Mario Bros
2011 = Year of Zelda
2012 = Year of Kirby
2013 = Year of Luigi
2014 = Year of the Game Boy?

All of the celebrations from 2010-2013 were from anniversaries, and 2014 will have the 25th anniversary of the Game Boy. I think it would be great to see Nintendo celebrate this.

Maybe that way they will start releasing GB games on the 3DS VC in a consistent way.

Oh look! A Morphloggery.
Oh! eShop Gurus.

. . . with colour palette options. I didn't wait 25 years just so I could play GB games on a pea soup display all over again.

While I would like color palettes as well, I think Download Play for Game Boy and Game Boy Color games are needed more, Sega and M2 do it with their Game Gear games, so there's no excuse for GB/GBC VC games games to not have it as well.

Nah, it'll be the "Year of Yoshi". We have both Yarn Yoshi & Yoshi's new Island coming, it's pretty perfect.

Looking forward to: ZeldaU & Hyrule Warriors

I hope that it's the year of Ice Climbers. It's about to be 29 years since the NES game came... 29th Anniversary Ice Climbers 3D Adventure confirmed. Or better yet, the year of Half Life with a new 2014 Half Life U game.

There will never be a console exclusive Half Life game, PC is Valve's main platform.

I would love it if they would release a 3ds done in game boy style with grey system, red buttons and so on and if they could release a bunch of games that people want, but that is my dream.

Forget year of the Gameboy
Make it Year of Super Smash Bros.
Smash Bros. almost came out 15 years ago. Everyone loves it, and 2 more games are planned to release next year as well.

If that's what it takes to get more GB and GBC games more often, I'll take it but what I really want are GBA and SNES games. I'd buy tons of them.

Currently playing: check my backloggery

Maybe if they can update all GB VC games to use like if we are playing the Super GB in our 3DS. (palette colors, frames like GameGear games, etc).

No thanks. I'd rather they remain the same as they were originally. I'd actually would rather play LA in 'pea soup' than in colour. Do you not like B&W movies too?
