Why release GBA games for Wii U and not 3DS...?

I can't even be bothered to explain all of the reasons for this being a strange decision...

I was hoping for Gamecube games. This was probably the worst part of the Direct for me.

I agree, TC. Especially since they released GBA games for the Ambassador program and they worked like a charm. Im still confused why they havent released at least the GBA pokemon games on the 3DS eShop.

I don't get it either, unless Nintendo thinks that everyone still owns a DS to play GBA games...

Nah I am happy they didn't. They'd probably charge 30 bucks per GC game.

I was thinking that too. They would have to be more expensive than N64 games, and I dont know how excited I am to spend $30 to play Mario Sunshine.

Because this ND was all about WiiU. The next one will be about 3DS, and we'll see the features revealed there.

I find it baffling as well. Can't say I found it to be bad or unwelcome news, but confusing yes. Then again, no discussion about the 3DS took place, and Iwata said there would be a direct for 3DS soon, so maybe they're holding off announcing it until then? Still seems strange, but it is Nintendo we're talking about...

As for Gamecube games, however, I'm actually just happy to see Wind Waker HD coming this year. That's excellent, and the new graphics look better than ever. If Nintendo took the time to polish up a handful of classics instead of porting to VC, I think it would be much better overall.

Well 3DS could still get it. Ambassador titles do exist.

Metroid Zero Mission and Super Metroid are some of the finest 2D games ever made and are the best in the series.
Metroid Fusion is pretty cool I guess.
