Many of us have been hoping that Nintendo would bring its extensive Game Boy Advance library to the 3DS eShop. Save for a few games given away during Nintendo’s ambassador program, GBA games have yet to appear on the Virtual Console. Community Manager CeeCee of Natsume (publisher of the Harvest Moon series) revealed on Tumblr that even though they aren’t currently working on porting any of its GBA games, Nintendo was aiming to make this a possibility in the future. For the full statement, hit the jump.
The following statement was made on Natsume’s Community Manager’s blog about the possibility of putting some of their GBA games on Virtual Console:
“No, Nintendo does not put recent console games on the 3DS eShop, and sadly that means we cannot either. The same goes with GBA (outside of the ambassador games) – though they’re working on this and we look forward to the day it’s possible. But until that day comes, we aren’t actively working on porting any specific GBA or GameCube games.”
Though it is still uncertain as to whether or not Nintendo will release GBA games to the 3DS eShop, Nintendo seems to be working on making that a reality. It seems it is more a matter of “when” Nintendo will decide to announce and release GBA games, rather than if they will.
