Natsume comments on the future of GBA, GBC and DS virtual console games
The Go Nintendo website reports that, according to Natsume, Nintendo is still working on GBA virtual console title games for the 3DS however they are currently working with Nintendo on bringing more GBC titles to 3DS.
Natsume is also very interested in releasing DS games onto the WiiU virtual console, which Nintendo recently announced.
Natsume had this to say …
No, Nintendo does not put recent console games on the 3DS eShop, and sadly that means we cannot either. The same goes with GBA (outside of the ambassador games) — though they’re working on this and we look forward to the day it’s possible. …We’re aware today that Nintendo has announced plans to launch DS games for the WiiU – it’s an exciting time, and we’ll be reviewing our DS catalogue for potential titles.
Harvest Moon GBC did quite well for us, and we have a solid library of GBC games to draw from for re-release. Currently, we are working with Nintendo to re-release some more of our classic GBC games. When we have dates for future eShop re-releases (and we WILL be releasing more eShop titles), we’ll announce them on our social media first! We’ll touch upon the challenges of releasing classic titles onto modern systems in a later question.
All-in-all, good news for the virtual console library, particularly for Natsume fans. Which Natsume games are you excited about seeing re-released? Let us know in the comments section below.
