I would be more than okay if those come to North America, especially since I don't have a lot of those.

Despite owning multiple other copies, I'd still rather have Mario 3 or SMW than Yoshi's Island.

Well, props to Nintendo; they actually give you a decent selection of decent titles. WarioLand 4 was my first ever GBA game and I still think it's lovely to this day.

Sword of Seals, while decent, was not as polished or well-designed as the later games on the GBA. Personally, I think Blazing Sword should've made the cut instead, but I can't really complain about Sacred Stones.

It's Yoshi's Island. Posts like this continue to remind me how confusing English and Japanese titles could be in the past. Lol.

Finally.

Damn that's a good list. I was hoping Super Mario World was one of them, but I also wasn't expecting an F-Zero game. All my other hopes came true. (Minish Cap, a Fire Emblem, and Wario Land 4)

EDIT: DECEMBER 16th?!?! Oh god please let that also be true for non-Japan regions.

Needs more Rekka no Ken... though I would have taken Sword of Seals. I have a boxed copy of Sacred Stones... and it's a good game. People'll enjoy it if they haven't played it.

The rest of the list looks great.
