    On the NoE press server, the boxarts for three GBA games (Super Mario Ball, Mario Golf Advance Tour and Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga) were uploaded.

    As you might already know, a European 3DS-focused Nintendo Direct was announced. It's possible that they may end up announcing GBA games for the eShop during that presentation.


    If this is real and Mario & Luigi is brought over to the eShop, I'll definitely get it. And then I'll buy it again on another 3DS. I fucking adore that game.

    If Nintendo release the Mario 2D platformers of GBA,
    especially Super Mario Bros 3 and Super Mario World,
    then I'm definetly gonna buy it.

    Which reminds me...


    Where the fuck are the SNES games Nintendo? So many great SNES games that they could choose from and we just get random GameBoy games. :(

    If they were to release the GBA SMB3 version on the 3DS, I would hope that the emulator running it also contains a virtual e-Reader + cards built in.

    Superstar saga? That's the best one! Also the hardest. I never did beat it though and now my ex girlfriend has my copy so I really hope this news is true.

    EDIT: While they're at it we need the snes version of simcity, that game was amazing.

    That's what I always asked too.
    Super Mario World, Donkey Kong Country(1-3), The Legend of Zelda - A Link to the Past,
    Super Metroid, Megaman X(1-3), Super Ghous and Ghoblins, Battletoads in Battlemaniacs,
    Zombies ate my Neighboors, Magical Quest, Goof Troop, Power Rangers the Movie...

    There are so many outstanding games for SNES that's hard to make a list of the best ones

    While there are a bunch of GBA games I would love the chance to re-own I will pass on Mario and Luigi for the silly reason I own the cart still. still there are plenty more games that wouldn't go a miss in due time

    Mmm I would buy those games, heck I can easily emulate those on the SCDS2 and S3. Gotta build up a GBA library on my 3DS.

    Need Pokemon Emerald, come on Nintendo you know you wanna milk it. ;)

    Even as an ambassador, it is about time.

    Put DS games on there while they are at it.

    I want to see Super Adventure Island 2 on the eShop. If that came out for it, I would buy it in an instant.
