    In case you weren't aware, Nintendo launched the first batch of GBA games on Wii U's Virtual Console service and despite the low resolution of GBA games, they look pretty good (supposedly better than the GBA ambassador titles on 3DS). The reason for this is clear now as it has been reported that M2 actually developed the GBA VC titles. M2 is a development studio, consisting of emulation experts that previously brought us the stunning SEGA 3D classics.

    M2 should help Sony out with it's PS2 emulator (if they aren't already) and maybe I can get Front Mission 4 and 5 on PS4 as PS2 classics.

    M2? Makes sense. They also made great emulated ports for Namco Museum DS. Very enjoyable. Now, if they worked on the Super FX games for Super NES (Yoshi's Island and Starfox, I'm looking at you!).

    That explains why the emulation is spot on, and they even included filtering (by pressing the right analog stick till it clicks), dayum, that's awesome:D
