Ever wonder why there were no Game Boy games made available on the Wii’s Virtual Console? Why, it’s because Nintendo was saving that for the upcoming 3DS.

The company revealed at its 2010 press conference earlier today that the 3DS will have its own Virtual Console, from which you’ll able to download both Game Boy and Game Boy Advance titles.

No specifics like availability or price were made available, though two games shown were Super Mario Land and Link’s Awakening.
