Seems like you'll have to keep your original 3DS if/when the inevitable 3DS redesign comes out if you wanna hold on to those GBA games. What I don't get is why let the NES games move over, but not GBA?
That link also gives details about the early versions of the games that Ambassadors get. Like no save states off the bat and no manuals.
So, to clarify, both NES and GBA are getting "Beta" versions of their virtual console counterparts, but only NES ones are getting upgrades as those are definitely getting a regular eShop release.
So basically, playing GBA games is just like playing them on a DS.
Or like playing them on a GBA.
Eh, I can live with that, I guess. GBA games tend to have much better methods and options for saving games than GB/NES games, so it's not all bad. Just makes it...authentic, I guess. Wouldn't mind them releasing those games to the store eventually, though, just to offer upgrades. Make it exclusive for a couple of months since they're released. Then we can transfer them over to future consoles, whether they be 3DSLite or a 3DS-2.
