This is Japan only for now, unfortunately. However, this shows much promise for 3DS Virtual Console, especially Game Boy (Color) games. Excited? Share your thoughts.

You mean wireless multiplayer? Cool. I can't wait to do that with Super Mario Bros. or Balloon Fight.

Amazing news, I hope they update every VC game that should support multiplayer soon (with "soon" meaning sometime this year or the next one).

This article says the multiplayer is for nes games only This forum does not mean anything, they are never going to add multiplayer to the Gameboy or Gameboy color because they can't emulate a stupid link cable. :(

What? That article says more NES games will get multiplayer updates and one will be Zelda. Zelda didn't even have multiplayer. And it also says 10 GBA will get the update. ... I hope they'll all (or at least half) have download play multiplayer.

wait, does download play mean that you only need one purchased copy of the game to play multiplayer? Or is that some typo in the article?

Um...where have you been?
Local Multiplayer was announced for the NES ambassador games before they were released.
It's going to be implemented for the obvious titles Ice Climber and Balloon Fight, where there is actual simultaneous multiplayer.
I'm looking forward to it though - finally some VC multiplayer ;)

For those who hadn't heard of this before; No, this doesnt mean GB/GBC games will be getting multiplayer unfortunately, and no - this doesnt mean all the NES games will be getting multiplayer. It seems only the games with simulataneous multiplayer will be getting it as games like Super Mario Bros. can still be played in multiplayer by passing the 3DS around (not ideal - but that explains it).

@Kyuubikid213 The Japanese says "Download play". Is this different than "wireless multiplayer"?

@oiiopo I think this does mean you only need one copy. :)

It's suppose to emulate local multiplayer. The difference between this and Cable Link is it's emulating multiplayer on one "console" where's Gameboy it's two consoles and both have the game, IIRC.

Yeah, this is probably why it is easier for NES.

Obviously I would want all Game Boy games to have multiplayer put in but Pokemon would almost be broken without wireless so I wouldn't mind paying a little extra to have wireless link-up play!

I predict that Yoshi and Balloon Fight will get the same treatment, since they also have simultaneous multiplayer.

The article says we'll get these updates once all the ambassador games are available to purchase? I hope they're all put on the eShop soon! It's great that it's download play too. So much easier to find someone to play with.
