    Nintendo said that they are only for ambasadors.

    They'll probably end up releasing them eventually. Just not now.

    Well, being somebody who works with Nintendo and so knows their inside plans and development progress...

    I can't tell you shit because the above line is totally false.

    Seriously, how are we supposed to know?

    For now.
    Ambassadors only.

    Future?
    Maybe general public, maybe via hacks, maybe never.

    I think GBA games will come eventually, just not right now. Nintendo are just happy to try and get money out of the GB games and Nes ones right now there is only 1 GBC game on the e-shop isn't there? when sales start to slow down I imagine bringing in GBA games will start to come, why sit on instant money makers?

    They never said they were gonna release it to the public. So you can get that idea out of your head, until further notice.

    Nintendo just said there were no plans right now to release them to the public. Going by that, they will be released eventually I'm shore.

    @ OP You should have taken the question marks out of your post. So far people think you're asking a question, rather than stating a complaint, and trying to start a discussion. It might be a good idea to go back and edit your first post. :)

    I've always wondered this myself, and I finally found the answer.

    Nintendo doesn't like money.


    Honestly though I have not the slightest clue why they haven't put any up for download.

    They may release them in the future. The best way to try and make that happen is to contact Nintendo support and let them know that you want it. If enough people ask for the GBA games, it gives it a better chance of happening.

    If I remember correctly, on the Australian eShop, there is one GBA game available for public purchase, but I can't recall what it's called. It's NOT an ambassador title, though.

    Any answer to this question is just a rumour or speculation...
