These are completely different games than the ones mentioned on the US Direct, by the way.

Still blows my mind that I cannot play these portable games on my portable system. Instead I'm forced to use the shitty controller LCD or stretch each pixel out an inch on a HDTV.

with brighter washed out graphics, and IMO crappier sound compared to the SNES version

plus I already have it on my 3DS

If Nintendo would finally link all accounts and allow users to have a singular Nintendo account where all their purchases transferred from Wii U to 3DS and vice versa they'd be on to something.

This is an odd choice to offer on the Wii U and not the 3DS...

Unfuckingbelievable that this still isn't happening on the 3DS. And I say that as someone who is likely buying a Wii U very soon. I've had the GBA ambassador games on my 3DS forever Nintendo, you can clearly fucking do it. Holy shit what the fuck.

Like most in this thread, I don't understand why the handheld games aren't playable on a handheld....

And then there's the business side of things, with the install base of the two systems being drastically disparate.

It doesn't mean we like it, or that it's a good decision.

Hell, it could have been a great announcement. "Surprise, it's coming to both!"

Now I'm worried I'll buy GBA games on my Wii U VC, and they'll launch it on 3DS later and there will be no cross buy, Because there's never any cross buy.

Yep. The news did nothing for me and my first thought was "those 3-4 games they announced will be the only games for like eight months"

Nintendo really sucks shit at their Virtual Console service.

the only thing wrong with GBA yoshi is that yoshi makes those awful noises and the music is lower quality
hopefully they'll fix the latter

Well, I'm glad they finally gave a specific date, but I still wonder what took them so long. Also NA/Europe have a lot less titles confirmed so far, which doesn't exactly make me feel optimistic. 650yen is a good price, though, I expected it to be at least as much as the SNES titles.
Now for that N64 VC you announced along the GBA VC....

Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3 was on the EU stream, what a pointless game to add, the superior version is on the SNES on the Wii U VC. The only reason for people to buy the GBA version of any SNES port would be for the portability, but since it is on console... :S

Fuck this. I am not buying their console to play GBA games. GBA games should be on both, but if they must choose only one they should quite clearly be on 3DS!

That 240x160 resolution is sure gonna look good on an HDTV.

Games are games. Games born as handheld games made it to home consoles successfully and vice-versa, so that argument is moot.

I'm guessing it's much easier to have them running on more powerful hardware. Heard that the 3DS ambassador GBA games had issues.

Japan: Basically every major GBA 1st party franchise, barring Pokémon. (Some even have all their games already on)
Western World: 2 Mario titles, Metroid fusion and a vague promise of "AND MORE..."

They aren't even Japanese exclusive titles. Why delay them at all?
