3DS Virtual Console will have Game Gear titles

Nintendo just announced at their GDC keynote that the 3DS Virtual Console will have TurboGraphx-16 and SEGA Game Gear titles. That is right, now you will be able to put down that battery hogging Game Gear and be able to play your titles on the go on the 3DS.

As for titles at launch, none where named. I would not be shocked at Sonic titles being the first to hit the service. Especially since this year is Sonic’s 20th anniversary.

    How awesome would it be if 3d effects were incorporated into them!

    Yet, this makes the 3DS a VERY attractive console to me.

    I LOVE quick simple games on the go.

    Having these old stores is great news! Especially since I've always wanted to have a GameGear again.

    Good to see that the 3DS's Virtual Console has multiple platforms like the Wii's.

    Awesome since I just recently found out my Game Gear isn't working right.

    Huzzah! I expected this, but thought it might have been announced sooner (one tends to worry that maybe it won't happen). The Game Gear was my first handheld system (er, not counting all those Tiger electronic ones). Still remember the day my dad and I went to FuncoLand to pick it up… Anyhow, some Sonic Game Gear games you can get on one form or another on a home console, but it's really not the same, like what crackdude alluded to.
