When the 3DS Virtual Console was introduced, it brought with it the promise of giving classic portable games a new lease in life much the same as the Wii Virtual Console did for classic console games. While it had a pretty strong start, it's no secret that the 3DS Virtual Console has been lacking for quite some time now. With each new week, fans faithfully expect a mighty return for the service and each week they end up disappointed yet again. Now, it appears that Nintendo has reached a final decision on the release of Game Boy games.

A fan recently tweeted at Natsume inquiring about whether or not an obscure Game Boy game published by the company would ever see a release on the VC. The response the fan received was something that we've all known for a while now, but it's still some pretty tough news. Evidently, Nintendo is done with releasing Game Boy games for the service. Here's the tweet:

What do you think? Will other classic portables soon be following suit? Do you feel that the Game Boy library has been properly filled out? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
