Shortly after the Pokémon Red, Blue and Yellow 3DS Virtual Console releases were announced, the online retailer Amazon added listings for download codes of the games, with each version priced at $9.99.
It’s considerably more expensive than the usual $3.99 to $5.99 Game Boy games go for on the Virtual Console. Perhaps it could be a premium for the work done to make trading and battling work with the 3DS’ wireless capabilities.No comments

New 3DS bundles for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire and Xenoblade Chronicles 3D are coming to Europe on June 26.
Each of the bundles come with: A New 3DS, the original system’s cover plates, an additional set of cover plates with game-related art, and a free game-related Home menu theme.
Of course, the bundles also come with their respective games. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire come pre-installed, while Xenoblade Chronicles 3D is a physical copy (presumably because the game would fill up the 4GB Micro SD card included with the system).

- Connecting to the Internet using the Player Search System
- Using Wonder Trade
