3DS downloads imminent?
Try not to get your hopes up -especially in the light of recent events- but it looks as if Nintendo is about to announce the release of Game Boy Advance games on the 3DS eShop.
Spotted by German siteNintendo-Online.de, a trio of GBA covers have been uploaded onto the Nintendo Europe press server, withSuper Mario Ball (AKA Mario Pinball Land),Mario Golf Advance TourandMario & Luigi Superstar Sagabeing the games in question.
Nintendo announced today that a specialNintendo Direct will take place on Thursdayand that the 3DS eShop wouldundergo maintenance just before the presentation.Could this finally mean the advent of downloadable GBA titles on your 3DS?

It's about time. Of all handhelds ever, the GBA arguably had the best library (and it was the one handheld that was inaccessible on the 3DS, at least unless you were an Ambassador). It's good to see GBA titles apparently making their way to the eShop- and starting out with Superstar Saga too!
