I just found out something interesting. NoE uploaded the boxarts of three GBA games on their press server.




Since today was announced another Nintendo direct it could very likely be that Nintendo announces gba games for the eshop on thursday. The games are:

Super Mario Ball
Mario Golf Advance Tour
Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga


I hope that this is really true and is not a mistake again.

Hopefully this means a possible Mother 3 port for the US
yeah right

Yeah, now they can just give us a GBA game every 3 weeks and never have to put up an original Game Boy game ever again.

I think they should be throwing SNES and GBA games up on the e-shop. I would buy LTTP, and the Donkey Kong Country games in seconds.

Superstar Saga good? Only played Partners in Time. Either way I wouldn't get too excited... best to be pessimistic. Still find it hard to believe NoA putting up a GBA page was a mistake.

Superstar Saga, huh? The best game in the Mario & Luigi series for sure. Hopefully this turns out to be true.
How would scaling from the GBA resolution work on the 3DS anyway? Would it be able to do true 2x?

GBA has one of the most glorious backlog ever made.

Lots of games needing that second chance to be loved by the big public likeBit Generations, Astroboy, Drill Dozer, Kuru Kuru Kururin, The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night, Starfy and even games like Mario vs. Donkey Kong and Sonic Battle

It's a fantastic game. Fun battle mechanics, great music, hilarious, nice world to explore, and absolutely brilliant writing. A must-play, and it's my favorite Mario RPG. (haven't finished TTYD though)

If it releases on 3DS, I'll be so very happy.

maybe a japan port of the Rhythm heaven game for the GBA would be nice too. (after all Nintendo did bring Sin and Punishment state side on Wiiware)

You played the worst one. Superstar Saga is leagues better than PiT.

This is the same company that hasn't made a genuine Pokemon RPG on consoles. I'm not surprised at all.

Same here. Advance Tour wasn't too far off in quality from it's GBC predecessor, but Tennis GBC is so much better than Power Tour it's not even funny.

Maybe there will be GBA games on the shop this week. Like maybe Super Mario Kart GBA.

And you also get to play it on your Wii U gamepad when it comes out.

I remember I once shot 24 under in a game of Mario Golf on GBA. I'd totally buy it showed up on the e-shop, I lost my GBA copy long ago.
