Hey, I wanted to see what all of you thought if Nintendo brought Virtual Boy games to 3ds?

It was talked about a few years ago but nothing ever came of it. Seeing that there were only 14 games released I thought a 2 or 3 part collection would be cool. Plus I think it's a Natural for Nintendo's Virtual Console. Now that they have Gameboy and Game Gear. Oh maybe even Atari Lynx games would be cool too... Hummm.....

For me, I personally would love to see it happen! There were a few jems on Virtual Boy like Wario, Mario Tennis, and Galactic Pinball.

Too obscure to have commercial appeal

Not sure if I'd want to play games in red...

It would be nice if they released Virtual Boy Wario Land and Telroboxer on the 3DS, but I really don't see it happening. I think Nintendo just wants to forget that the Virtual Boy ever happened.

I would love to see this happen, but I seriously doubt it will.

I am not sure if any virtual boy games are good enough to be worth it to release again, plus the lineup was just so small that there aren't many games to pick from. I would rather Nintendo focus on making really great games instead of re-releasing mediocre ones.

I would like to see the mario and wario games on there. Everything else can suck it.

Tennis on Virtual Boy was fun. Although I don't think it would impress me like it did in 1995.

As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.

I would definitely purchase both Wario, Mario Tennis.

I think the issue is that the system failed, and Nintendo doesn't want to be linked with a failure.

These are the games that I am currently playing:

 

:wiiu: Captain Toad Treasure Tracker

:ds: Kingdom Hearts RE:coded

Here is a direct link to my trade list.

I also mean Mario Clash, not Mario tennis.

Agreed. There was a reason why these all-red games were never heard of again. And Nintendo already got their money's worth with this by inadvertently creating Lasik eye surgery. ;)

If the are remaking NES games as 3d classics I don't see why not for a few VB games. But it seems unlikely.

As the sole fan of the Virtual Boy, I'd love it.

They put the gamegear on there.

I want 3DS reboots of Virtual Boy games. I always wanted to play Virtual Boy Wario Land and Mario Clash. I mean, I want the games to be in full color.

I played a Virtual Boy game once. That's more than enough for one lifetime.

A definite "no thanks".

Hey the game gear was great. I had two games on that thing and they were both fun. Sonic 2 & Aerial Assault.

Plus it was about the size of the Wii U gamepad. I even had a car charger for long trips.
