    I think Nintendo already released SNES on 3DS but seriously since we've been using unofficial emulators I think the majority of people forgot about the official side of things they use flash carts for everything emulation wise.

    Never saw Snes games on the 3DS eShop. I've only seen NES and GB/GBC.

    We know it's capable of running them, but I doubt Nintendo wants to do it. Unofficially, perhaps someday.

    Even if they take a while with Snes I woudn't be dissapointed because I use my WiiU to play Snes games.

    Because I doubt Nintendo wants to invest the time into developing an emulator for the 3DS

    Just don't think they will really. Nintendo are a bit daft in this department for some reason, they plan to release GBA games on the Wii U Virtual Console yet not on the 3DS? the Wii U still lacking a confirmation of GameCube games on the Wii Virtual Console, having a painful process of having the Virtual Console stuff slowly being re-released on the eShop after building up a great catalogue on the Wii....you see where I'm coming from?

    Nintendo is too lazy to code an ARM based SNES emulator. They even stopped making 3D classics, because they take too much time.

    And still the 3DS is been ignored :sad:
    No SNES VC, no SNES 3D classic, no GBA VC :hateit:

    3DS has the perfect resolution for SNES,
    and GBA games work obviously better on it than WiiU,
    so Why Nintendo?

    The only explanation possible is that Nintendo staff are a bunch of incompetent that don't know how to port things to ARM nicely.
    That would explain why Kirby and Kid Icarus suck compared to other 3D classics.

    I don't think they stopped making 3D classics I think they are going to make more.
