    I have a strange feeling that it's just a mistake, and they meant to put the NES version... (because the GBA version is a "classic NES series" game)

    But AWESOME if it is true!

    There was a specific GBA version but it was released as Dr. Mario & Puzzle League


    I just see this as a mistake as well.

    I hope they release some Megaman Battle Network when they begin the GBA VC thing. That would probably be an insta-buy for me.

    If they're gonna release the battle network titles, they'll need to support multiplayer battles and trades.

    You cannot get perfect games on Battle Network 2 and 3 without trading and battling, some secret chip-data is exclusive to net battles even.

    I have faith Nintendo will release GBA games on the eshop for sale because who in their right mind would pay for an emulator to be written / games to be ported to the 3ds just to give away. The DR Mario thing I think is a slip up but time will tell.

    I'll take this with a grain of salt. For me it's only a rumor.

    If GBA titles were making a comeback on the 3DS eShop then I'm sure Nintendo would have used social media to hype their release. It's most definitely a mistake.

    You're thinking about NES VC there.

    For the 3DS VC, a title like this might be just what the doctor ordered.

    It truly is an advancement for the VC library.

    The game itself isn't exciting, probably a mistake anyway. At least it is showing that they are trying to get more VC games on 3ds and not just dsicrap...I mean dsiware. If it is the nes version, I'll still probably get it. I played it for hours upon hours when I first got it as a kid.

    Im keeping my fingers crossed for some GBA titles.
    Nintendo would make some serious cash releasing them.

    They sure are taking their time with getting GBA games out on the 3DS VC. I mean honestly, I don't even play the Ambassador titles aside from Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones and they really need to get the Advance Wars games, Metroid Fusion and Zero Mission, Zelda: A Link to the Past (better then the SNES version imo), Megaman Battle Network series plus Megaman and Bass, Boktai (might have to modify the game though), Castlevania series, Final Fantasy Tactics Advance etc etc.

    Yeah... I want Snes games now. It's like Nintendo doesn't want my money!
