The official word from the Big N regarding the recently released GBA titles is still that, as a token of appreciation for ambassadors, they’ll never be sold. But you never know. After all, Nintendo could only stand to not make money on these games since all the work of porting them has been done.
The other eight NES titles are said to be on the way, so look forward to Metroid, Balloon Fight and a slew of other 8-bit classics to hit the Nintendo 3DS in the coming months. Zelda and Mario are available in Japan for ¥500 so I’d expect these games to be $5 in the U.S.
