Why don't they release GBA games instead of GBC games in eShop

It's better to let the GB/GBC library develop first. GBA games will inevitably come eventually though.

I can't wait for Super Mario 3D, Mario Kart 3D, Paper Mario 3D, Luigi's Mansion 2,
Kid Icarus: Uprising, Kirby Mass Attack, Kirby Wii, and Skyward Sword!

Of course it was better. But so far the only Game Boy Color game we have is a port of an original Game Boy game with an extra dungeon. It would be ridiculous to stop there. There's more than one good Game Boy Color game.


That's the point.

Nintendo WANTS you to waste money on GB games you most likely wouldn't have bought in the first place. They did the same thing with Wii's VC.

If you had GBA games to buy, you wouldn't buy s*** GB games. That's why.

Because the GBA is still playable on an active Nintendo platform (DS Lite).

Also I'm going to say that personally I want more GB/GBC games because I didn't play most games from that era, whereas I was an active gamer in the GBA days.
