I was wondering if there was any hope of mario, zelda, or any other old school GBA games coming out?

Well, if your iPod Touch is jailbroken, its actually possible to play NES, SNES and GBA games on it...

Why would a company of another handheld publish games on other mobile devices? If GBA games do come back in digital form then it will offered on the Virtual Console for the DSi.

Erm... not really sure I would class the GBA as 'old school'. Sure, it's dated, but I tend to feel that the Snes and earlier is more old school. Still, just to further reinforce what has already been said many time before... Mario, Zelda etc will NEVER 'legally' appear on an iDevice. Even less so after the 'Duck Hunt' scandel

Oh, and welcome to TA!

Not in the appstore, but there are emulators you can get in Cydia when you jailbreak your iphone. NES, snes, genesis, gba, mame, it's there. No swipe functionality, just onscreen buttons. And bigger games of course will slow down. Check youtube, it's easy.
