Europe only for now... but wow what a coincidence, seeing as I've been replaying DS since a couple days ago.

Based on previous AW VC releases, the wait for NA shouldn't be more than a couple months. (Though realistically it shouldn't take more than one month at most... but NOA has been wierd with VC releases. Zero Mission was notably delayed compared to its JPN and EU releases)

Yeah. AW1 was same time, but AW2 had a four month gap between NA and EU.

I really don't get Nintendo's obsession with putting GBA and DS games on the Wii U.

Would be nice to have them released on the 3DS too.

I read that the 3DS can't play GBA games (despite there already being a few GBA games for the 3DS). Some kind of technical mumbo jumbo I didn't fully understand.

The 3DS can't emulate GBA games, but it does have a hacky hardware backwards compatibility mode that allows it (as seen with the ambassador titles).

I dunno why Nintendo doesn't sell them either.

This game is so good that, despite being a AW1 and AW2 hardcore player, I sold both of them because AW:DS had every bit of gameplay and CO variation I needed. I still get this out every couple months and play!
