We were all delighted to learn that Pokemon Red, Blue and Yellow will eventually be heading to the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console. Nintendo has yet to mention pricing for the games, but most of us expect that they will retail for the standard price of Game Boy Virtual Console titles on the Nintendo 3DS. However, online retailer Amazon has the digital versions listed at $9.99 each which seems a little steep. They are also listed with a February 27th release date.

We posted earlier today about the news that Animal Crossing: Wild World will be coming to the Europe Wii U Virtual Console on November 19th, and following on from that a Virtual Console trailer has also been released.
The game was originally released on the Nintendo DS on November 23rd, 2005, so will be celebrating its ten year anniversary shortly after releasing to the Virtual Console.
You can watch the trailer below:
Animal Crossing fans who own a Wii U have something to be happy about this week as Nintendo UK has announced that Animal Crossing: Wild World is arriving on the Wii U Virtual Console. You will be able to get your hands on the game on Thursday, November 19th and it will cost you €9.99 / £8.99.
Welcome to the friendly village of Animal Crossing! Every player’s village is unique and it’s up to you to decide how you spend your time there, and which characters you befriend. Time will pass in real time, so different activities and surprises happen depending on the time of the day. Return to the village frequently to discover special events only happening on certain dates, such as birthdays and other celebrations. (Online and multiplayer features are not available in this version.)
If you missed Link’s touch-based adventures on the DS, then you might want to pick them up on Wii U. Both The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks are currently available in Europe on the Virtual Console. The two games are sequels to Wind Waker, with Phantom Hourglass following the exact same Link, moments after the conclusion of the GameCube title. If you happen to speak French, you can get an idea of each game’s story in the videos below.
After we received the exciting news that Pokemon Red, Blue and Yellow will be released onto the 3DS Virtual Console in February, Japan also got the news that they will be getting boxed versions of the titles with a download code inside of it.
There’s no news on whether or not the West will receive something similar, but presumably it would have been mentioned in the Nintendo Direct if it was.
What do you think of the concept of boxed download codes?
Update: Pokeshopper shows further images including special game cartridges set for Japan:
