Ever wonder why there were no Game Boy games made available on the Wii's Virtual Console? Why, it's because Nintendo was saving that for the upcoming 3DS.

The company revealed at its 2010 press conference earlier today that the 3DS will have its own Virtual Console, from which you'll able to download both Game Boy and Game Boy Advance Color titles.

Link's Awakening is possibly the most underrated game in the Zelda series.

it took what Link to the Past did and improved on it...on a handheld format no less.

a lot of the gameplay features in Link's Awakening paved the way for Ocarina of Time, and the rest of the Zelda series in general.
