Nintendo Australia issues 'corrective statement'

Remember that Dr. Mario GBA page we told you about on the Nintendo of Australia website? The one that made us think that GBA games may be on their way to the 3DS Virtual Console? Sadly, it was all just a big mistake. The page was listed 'in error' and Nintendo's Aussie department has issued the...
