GDC: 3DS eShop bringing TG-16, Game Gear titles

The Nintendo 3DS eShop will bring back TurboGrafx-16 and Game Gear titles on its own Virtual Console, president Satoru Iwata announced this week at his GDC keynote. Though specific titles weren't mentioned, Sega claimed in a separate announcement that five of its Game Gear classics will come when the eShop launches in May.

This comes in addition to the Gameboy and Gameboy Color titles set for the service as previously announced, bringing the total number of systems represented to four. The Wii Virtual Console by comparison has built up eight consoles, and various arcade games. The TurboGrafx marks the first announced home console addition to the 3DS' Virtual Console.
