Nintendo rumored to finally be working on Game Boy Advance virtual console

Nintendo released a handful of Game Boy Advance games for the Nintendo 3DS back during the early days of the handheld’s lifetime, and it gracefully called these games gifts through their “Ambassador Program.” It was a fancy way of saying nobody wants this thing yet because there are no decent games for it, but here is free stuff for those who bought it.
