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.

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?

It would be pretty awesome if I could buy Superstar Saga on my 3DS, I played the Mario & Luigi DS games but never played the GBA one.

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.

man all I'm hoping for is the GBA Castlevania Aria of sorrow.

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)

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.
