Are GBA games ever going to be available on the Eshop?

I feel like this is a huge lost income stream. I'd be super willing to buy quite a few gba games on eshop for 5-10$.

Off the top of my head:
Advance wars 1/2
breath of fire 1/2
ff 4/5/6 advance
FFTA
FE: Sacred Stones
FE
Golden sun 1/2
Zelda: Link to the past
LOTR two towers/rotk
pokemon firered/leafgreen
pokemon emerald
sonic advance 1/2/3
super mario advance


I would like to think that Nintendo doesn't want money by releasing VC. They'd rather get money by actually putting effort into a new game. Hence why they aren't makin Majora's Mask remake.


You say that like Final Fantasy, Golden Sun, Lord Of The Rings, and Sonic are Nintendo franchises that they would make money off of.

I'm assuming that they get licensing fees for anything not first party that ends up on the eshop, which isn't really that much of a stretch. I was just picking out some of the better selling titles I remembered from gba. Feel free to actually contribute to the conversation next time.

One day, Nintendo has no reason to say no to porting more roms over.

They did it because of all the americans complaning about having to take their 3DS outside their house for streetpass and whatnot, and their fear of being robbed.

And wow, I did not expect to see you posting on this board, with the Wii U shenanigans and all.
