Can you play Gba games on a 3DS?
I`m THE FIRST ASKING THIS
Lol would be weird playing N64 games in 3D playing movies in 3D.
But being unable to play gba games
Maybe. Probably not, but maybe. No one is sure yet.
I expect so. You can play GBC on DS (with an emulator I mean)...so....
Though Virtual Console, more than likely at some point.
GBA ROMs you already have? I expect it's going to take atleast a year or two before than happens, maybe longer.
There's always a chance the supercard team may be able to update their DSTWO cart to run GBA/ NDS games on the 3DS. We won't know until the 3DS is released.
If the 3DS is ever hacked, it's almost certain there will be a GBA emulator for it. DS already has one with the help of the iplayer/dstwo. So the 3DS should have no trouble doing the job on its own.
As for natively, there's not a GBA slot. So unless Nintendo offers them via download, you can't play them.
As on the Wii.
i.e downloadable from the Nintendo 3DSWare shop for $.
absolutely through emulation, in fact unless Nintendo block ds flashcarts on the 3ds you should be able to use the DSTWO cart or whatever has slot-1 emulation at launch!
besides that GBA emulation will def be possible on hardware as well as virtual console at some point
Nintendo didn't stop people using GBA flashcarts in there DS from launch they didn't do a thing so there's hope
It's pretty possible since i don't see any GBA slot like on the DSi.The reason why the DSi couldn't play GBA games from flashcarts for example was the main CPU wasn't enough powerful to do it,but now on the 3DS it's CPU gonna be a beast(just look at Kid Icarus's engine) so i think there's a huge possibility to play them.
Short Answer: There's no GBA slot on the 3DS so NO.
Long Answer (which for some reason people are using without answering the question fully): When it gets hacked there'll be a GBA emulator no doubt. But nobody knows how long that'll take since nobody capable of finding an exploit has access to 3DS hardware.
They can add that on 3DS.
Problably Yes, as there sould be a 3DS Network, 3DS Virtual Handheld(or Console), or any online shop alike.
Or when hacks or flashcarts are released, there should be an GBA emulator.
My 2 cents on both.
well, the design isn't sure yet, so if they change the design to look more like the ds lite, it can
tho it would be heavier
wait lemme check.
yep, you need to run the pc emulator to run VBA. no 3d yet though.
Maybe on an emulator when someone figures out how to code for the 3DS, or maybe thought a virtual console system like the Wii...
That doesn't make any sense at all. The way it looks will not determine what games it can play.
i think he is referring to the features, like, if they will add a gba slot or something.
I assure you there will be emulators.
