Rumor: Game Boy Advance titles to finally make their way to 3DS eShop?

Ever since the 3DS Game Boy Virtual Console service was first unveiled, owners of Nintendo’s latest handheld have been clamoring at the thought of Game Boy Advance titles being available for purchase. For now, early adopters of the 3DS Ambassador program have only had the opportunity to download classic GBA titles on their handheld. However, according to a leaked image, that may possibly change.

According to a recent post on NeoGAF, an image from Nintendo of Europe’s press server shows the box art of several GBA titles (Super Mario Ball, Mario Golf: Advance Tour, and Mario & Luigi: Super Star Saga). Now, like any rumor of this type, it’s possible that Nintendo of Europe may have accidentally posted these photos in place of another. So, this all could be a huge misunderstanding in the midst of the NoE’s Nintendo Direct presentation this coming Thursday.

If the GBA Virtual Console service does finally make its way to the 3DS, what titles would you like to see first?
