They're supposed to come this year alongside the N64 titles, presumably after the upcoming update.

I don't get it, Nintendo promised (long, long ago) Turbografx-16 for 3DS and GBA for Wii U. Shouldn't it be the opposite? I'd much rather play GBA on an actual handheld than on a home console, anyway. As for Turbo, it would be great on both platforms as it as great on Wii Virtual Console already.

You'd have to ask Konami why there's no 3DS TG16 games (and somehow I don't see you getting an answer :P ).
I guess it was included because of the TurboExpress (a console that was effectively a fat GameBoy that played TG card games).

I never understood why GBA games would be on the Wii U virtual console and not the 3DS one. Instead of GBA games on the Wii U VC why not have Gamecube games? It makes so much more sense that the 3DS get's GBA games and Gamecube for Wii U.

I honestly think they should put GBA games on Wii U and N64 games on 3DS.

Just to keep things interesting.

I'm gonna assume the lack of 3DS GBA games is that 3DS doesn't need any help in any way at this point.

stop rushing me. i will release the gba games on the wii u when i am ready. the more people that ask the longer ill put it off, the more people that would rather see them on 3ds gives me more ambition to do the opposite.

One of my concerns when considering upgrading from Wii to Wii U was no longer having a platform for my GCN games. I took the plunge after a representative of NoA said that GCN games would be available on Wii U via VC. Alas, I have been bamboozled.

But yes please, GBA games on 3DS, GCN games on Wii U would be optimal, but I'll take GBA games on Wii U if that's all Nintendo's willing to give me.

What, like full moons, silver bullets, and eyebrows that join in the middle?

I want Virtual Boy games on 3DS, this is a logic step for the system.

Nintendo probably won't put any more GBA games on the 3DS, so that they won't piss off all of the ambassador people.
Besides, with the way that Nintendo have been handling the VC on both the WiiU and 3DS, I wouldn't put my hopes for anything worth while for a long time yet.
And another thing, I just think that with the crap 3rd party support aswell, the VC will never reach the potential that it really deserves.

I doubt even the ambassadors would care at this point.... it's been almost 2 whole years already it's fair to have so much time before everyone else PLUS not exactly paying for them as a compensation for having paid more for a 3DS at the time...

I was once a fighter in spirit alone, but not long ago I found something that was missing and became a fighter in body and mind too.

I don't care either. They'll show up when they show up.

BTW, I bought an ambassador 3DS in June 2011 for $130 online, then I transferred to my XL. That was before all of the games I knew were gonna come out, came out.

EDIT: That mainly happened because I didn't have enough cash for it at launch.

I would feel the same way, but I would actually play some of the GBA games. I don't think there's any N64 game that I would want to re-play.

I had fun once and it was awful.
