GBA & N64 not coming to 3ds

#1pbayne22Posted 4/17/2013 11:25:20 AM
Don't get me wrong, I loved todays direct and am so hyped for the 3ds.

But I was kinda disappointed that n64 and gba games were announced for wii u, not for 3ds(especially Earthbound).

Is anyone else raging about this or is it just me?

3DS can't emulate N64 games. It's the same reason why PS2 support for Vita will never exist.

Not enough RAM stranger.

I'm raging about it, especially about Earthbound.

And it's not like the 3DS COULDN'T emulate GBA and N64.

Heck, a few of the original 3DS games were 64 remakes.

I don't really mind the 3DS lacking in the virtual console. What bothers me more is that the VC is probably the WiiU's best feature, which is quite sad. My Wii was pretty much a legal emulator machine.

What I meant is that it's clearly graphically capable, and I'm pretty sure the engine could handle it.

Is it that it can't emulate 64, or that they don't want it to?

I don't understand why GBA won't come for 3ds. The ambassador games work flawlessly.

you need way more power to emulate it. it could work if they were to recode the games, but it might not be worth it

The 3DS could easily handle a VC release of N64 titles. It's almost like you guys don't realize how much more powerful the 3DS is than the N64.
