What's a good reason for GBA VC on Wii U and not 3DS?

It amazes me how badly they screwed the opportunity up.

Chances are it's a teaser to announce that the two VC will merge.

1.nintendo releases gba games on 3ds for ambassadors only to get people hyped
2.nintendo releases the wiiu gba vc first over a year later
3.nintendo then releases gba vc
4.congradulations nintendo tricked you into buying the same game twice,and a digital version at that.

That's the real reason.

I highly doubt it, given Nintendo's record with standardization.

oh i can guarantee that's the reasoning behind it.
i love nintendo's games but we all know there d***s about drm.

This is the same company that'd rather use a really bad emulation service then ever copy what emulators like vba do.
use there ideas there ideas,are better then yours(aside from the whole free play thing)

I'm actually guessing the announcement of GBA VC on WiiU is exclusively to get Mother 3 on Japanese WiiU VC since Itoi wanted the games to be playable to modern players. They are already getting one of them. Lack of listing for US got people riled up, even though I doubt Nintendo would want that game as 30 cent one.

Actually US didn't get Fire Emblem either but no one complained about that, even if I wish Nintendo would take the time to translate the old games they stick on VC to update(at leased the Nintendo ones, Sega did it for Monster World IV). That would justify the 4 - 10 buck price tag it would cost to get them. It'd be worth it to see some of the games that got skipped, like the first 6 Fire Emblems, Famicom Wars, Nazo no Murasame-Jou, Glory of Hercules series, or the first few Custom Robos
