Nintendo to begin selling Game Boy Advance games on 3DS Virtual Console?

On the Nintendo Australia website, it appears that Dr. Mario for the Game Boy Advance is available for purchase via the eShop. Is this a fluke? Or has Nintendo Australia accidentally started to promote GBA games on the eShop a bit too early? (3DS, eShop - Game Boy, Nintendo, Tag Invalid, Virtual Console)

i doubt non translated games will land on the virtual console. but would be great to get people using 3ds eshop.

I`d rather just play them on my DS lite. I know they'll be terribly overpriced

Hope they release Super Mario Advance 2, so I can play Super Mario World on the go.

Already doing that with my phone and hacked PSP.

And of course they'll release Super Mario World.

I hope that its true because ever since i got the 1.80 update on my Vita i have been enjoying a ton of fantastic playstation one games which are dirt cheap on the store. When i had my GBA i enjoyed a tremendous ammount of good games on it, games which i believe that many people want to play again.

Sure someone can just use an emulator but a handheld is the best place to play these sorts of games. Now the next step is to get N64 games onto the store.
