At its Game Developers Conference keynote yesterday, Nintendo revealed that its upcoming Virtual Console service for the 3DS will not just offer Game Boy and Game Boy Color titles but also Game Gear and TurboGrafx-16 releases -- which is fantastic, but I still want to hear GBA/Virtual Boy/Lynx/NGPC announcements!
Anyway, Sega has already revealed five first-party titles that will release in its first wave of Game Gear classics for 3DS Virtual Console: Sonic & Tales 2, Sonic Drift 2, The GG Shinobi, Dragon Crystal Shirani's Maze, and Columns. Looks like you'll have to wait a little longer for Gunstar Heroes and the Shining Force releases.
It's not clear exactly when these games will be released or how much they will cost, but Nintendo intends to debut the Virtual Console service and other features to the 3DS in a downloadable firmware update this May.
