I was taking a look at the VC games list at wikipedia and it said that you could buy Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3 (GBA). I'm from Europe so PAL-region. When I looked it up I couldn't find it anywhere. They released it in 2011. Did Nintendo take it offline again? What happened to that game?

I believe that was an ambassador game, for those who bought the 3DS close to release. Otherwise, it's not possible to download it.

It's coming to Wii U this April. Otherwise you could only get it as a 3DS ambassador

Making this available now would kill sales in the new one. Some of the others though (Metroid / Superstar Saga / Warioware iNC) don't think it would make much difference.

sarcasm No, they are not available because the 3DS is apparently not powerful enough to run all of the GBA games. Plus, it'll take so long to make them available in the 3DS Eshop, it's not like they could do ten GBA VC games within three months! sarcasm

Of course it is. It's was released back in 2002 as a GBA game. Just go to a retailer that sells older games and buy it if you have a GBA. Or, if you're an ambassador 3DS owner, you can just download it from the eShop.
