In amongst the crazy awesome announcements coming out of GDC it was also revealed that GameGear and TurboGrafx16 titles would be making their way to the Virtual Console in the 3DS, which launches during late May. The Virtual Console allows you to download and play games from older systems in pretty much their original form (compared to the Classic Games feature which will offer 3D-ified versions of games). Sega has confirmed that they’ll be bringing five different Virtual Console titles to the platform:
* Sonic & Tails 2
* Sonic Drift 2
* The GG Shinobi
* Dragon Crystal Shirani’s Maze
Exact release dates and prices are unknown at this point, but I suspect they’ll be available within three or four months of the 3DS receiving the update that will install the Virtual Console. Do any of these games tickle your fancy? What games are you excited to see on the Virtual Console?
**Update:** There are some sites reporting that these titles will be available at launch. This might be the case, but they’re using GoNintendo as a source, who used Famitsu as their source. Aside from GoNintendo never referring to these titles as the *launch* line-up for the Virtual Console, I’d definitely trust andriasang’s translation over any other site.
