Kombo’s rumouring that DSi’s to get a Virtual Console system for downloading Game Boy and GBA games.

Apparently this has come from Nintendo reps at a US pre-launch DSi event.

The games will be saved to DSi’s SD card and will be limited to first-party Nintendo games, at least initially.

There’s no official word on this yet.

DSi launches on April 5 in the US and April 3 in Europe.
