I'm excited to see these on the virtual console. I'm thinking about finally caving and buying a Wii U in the next week or two (don't trust the drive on my Wii anymore after having to replace it, and I wouldn't mind playing some Wii U games over the summer), so I'll probably pick these up as well. I never actually played Sky, so I'm really excited about that one, and it's been a while since I've played the original PMD or any of the Explorers games, so it should be fun to give them another try.

I assume the internet functionality of the Explorers games won't be functional? I loved doing online rescues on those.

Would've made more money if released for the 3DS.

Just saying.

Ditto, that would be great if everyone could play the good old PMD games in 3DS as well, not to mention that not everyone have Wii U consoles to begin with (myself included).

Except the 3DS can't emulate GBA/DS games. As someone explained on Reddit:
It can however run them directly on the hardware, which is what it does when running DS or GBA (IE. Ambassador) games. As a consequence of running them directly on the hardware (Requiring the 3DS to switch into a different firmware), functionality is limited compared to regular VC (No save states, exiting to Home closes the game, etc.).
So it's just easier for Nintendo to release them on a console that can handle all the functionalities, instead of putting them on one that can't.

Besides, this could be enough to drive up sales for the Wii U, for people who want to play these games (and others released for the VC) and can't find another way to play them easily. Although I own the Mystery Dungeon games (except Sky and the last two releases), I am really tempted to pick up a Wii U just for the other games on the VC.

not as a call to bear arms, though arms we need--
not as a call to battle, though embattled we are--
but a call to bear the burden of a long twilight struggle, year in and year out."
