Due to the fact I own(ed) most of these on my Wii U (before Lightning struck) I thought I should check the GBA VC titles a bit. My results were quite interesting:

I was able to extract 27 titles from EU store thx to WiiU USB Helper and these got extracted with most recent v0.5.0 of wiiu-vc-extractor.

22 titles are known already:
Advance Wars (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es) (Virtual Console)
Advance Wars 2 - Black Hole Rising (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It) (Virtual Console)
Castlevania - Aria of Sorrow (Europe) (En,Fr,De) (Virtual Console)
Castlevania - Harmony of Dissonance (Europe)
Castlevania (Europe) (Virtual Console)
Fire Emblem - The Sacred Stones (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It) (Virtual Console)
Fire Emblem (Europe) (En,Fr,De) (Virtual Console)
F-Zero - GP Legend (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It) (Virtual Console)
Klonoa - Empire of Dreams (Europe)
Legend of Zelda, The - The Minish Cap (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It)
Mario & Luigi - Superstar Saga (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It) (Virtual Console)
Mario Kart - Super Circuit (Europe) (Virtual Console)
Mario vs. Donkey Kong (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It)
Metroid Fusion (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It) (Virtual Console)
Namco Museum (Europe)
Pac-Man Collection (Europe) (Wii U Virtual Console)
Pokemon Pinball - Ruby & Sapphire (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It)
Super Mario Advance (USA) (Virtual Console)
Super Mario Advance 2 - Super Mario World (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es)
Super Mario Advance 3 - Yoshi's Island (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It) (Virtual Console)
Super Mario Advance 4 - Super Mario Bros. 3 (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It) (Wii U Virtual Console)
Wario Land 4 (USA, Europe) (Virtual Console)

Quite nice to see that most already is added... Buut 5 were not:
Golden Sun The Lost Age (CRC32:25325EB0)
Golden Sun (CRC32:A95413D5)
Mario Golf Advance Tour (CRC32:9A049D4E)
Metroid Zero Mission (CRC32:0C8E4287)

I have no clue if these were not added with a reason or just noone added then up to now, but here they are: ... wn.7z?dl=0
Do as you think it's right to.

I planned the same for NES. but somehow ALL files extracted are not known, neither as NES nor FDS file, which makes me think I did something wrong.

SNES is out of debate to add or not, thus I wont continue any further there.

Maybe I will try the same for USA and Japan, but first you have to tell me if my doing is of any help or if you need more information or even want me to stop doing that ^^

I can only compare the NES ROMs to actual NES dumps, and just looking at Balloon Fight (compared to the Animal Crossing ROM, the one I happen to have available to compare), I see only one byte difference in the actual ROM, but Nintendo used a different header (and a footer), it seems.

Of any use? Not just the NES which seem to be less useful, but what about the GBA ones? Verification can be done by anyone using the same tools I did.
