    Man, so Nintendo are releasing the Wii U version of a GBA version of a SNES game? That’s some inception shit right there.

    Count me in, I like the idea. I was hoping for the VC to expand greatly. I was hoping for Sega Saturn, Sega Dreamcast, and Nintendo Gamecube. But with the way the WiiU is trending, I doubt much will come of it. It seems to me that the system should be able to offer Nintendo SP and DS games as well. A real missed oppertunaty in my book.

    This would be great if they were cross-buys for 3DS as well. As it stands I’m not sure I want to play GBA games on my Wii U no matter how freakin awesome Metroid Fusion is…
