    i have this question:

    3ds have GBA card slot??

    So if 3DS don't have GBA card slot, means we cannot play GBA games via 3ds then?

    It does not have one.

    Outside of a slot-1 flash cart that can emulate GBA games (like the Supercard DSTWO) you cannot play GBA games on a 3DS.

    There may be a GBA virtual console on it later.

    well, why they didn't put a GBA slot then??

    NDS got a GBA slot.

    NDSL got a GBA slot.

    Because GBA is dead. GBA wasn't dead when the DS was released, and the DSlite was released so close that people could still justify having compatibility.

    More likely than not, there will be a GBA Virtual Console later on.
    The N64 was 2 systems before the Wii and got VC releases, and the GBA is 2 systems before the 3DS.

    its just like with the 3ds and ds
    they will support backwards compatability for this time but may drop it
