Can the 3DS not handle them or something because that really doesn't make sense though because if the 3DS can handle full downloaded games of retail games why not some awesome N64 games the reason I'm asking because I really want some N64 games on my 3DS. I mean common who doesn't ?

Because Nintendo hates you and doesn't want your money.

Less sarcasm? If it was that easy, Nintendo would have already done it.

SNES games haven't even been made available on the eShop yet, so I believe that would be a more relevant question to ask. Until that occurs, I doubt we'll receive any N64 games. I'd rather we begun receiving GBA titles before SNES or N64 titles are made available.

Well if thats the only reason you asked for N64 games then you need not hold your breath. Copyright issues mean that the game wont be released on VC any time in the future (most likely). N64 games are released on the Wii VC anyway. If Nintendo set out to release all systems of games on both their consoles, none of the systems would have a good lineup. Nintendo are just aiming to do well building up GB/GBC games at the moment, with GG also slowly getting there.

Worked fine for Mario 64 on the DS, and the 3DS has the added circle pad so...

Nintendo would have to rework the controls, because the 3DS doesn't have another circle pad ot the C-butttons. I highly doubt they're going to do that. I guess the Z button too, but I rarely played any N64 games that actually used the L button, so whatever, lol.

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Yuuki...from School Rumble...
Yet Another Update: Also Amber and Xiao Pai from Rune Factory 4.

I've been informed by numerous gamers onlinne that the controls for Super Mario 64 DS were outright horrible. The D-pad controls were audacious, and the bumper pad on the 3DS did little to overcome this.
