Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Program launch
The Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Program will allow 3DS owners to download 10 free ported NES titles before the rest of the world, as well as 10 free ported GBA titles exclusive to the Ambassador Program. To qualify for the 20 free games you only need to connect to the eShop once, which will register your Game ID into the program. Only users who purchased the 3DS before the $80 price reduction and who connect to the eShop by August 11th, 11:59pm (EST), will be registered into the program.
A partial list of the free titles includes such classics as Super Mario Bros, Donkey Kong Jr., Balloon Fight, Ice Climber, The Legend of Zelda, Super Mario Advance 3: Yoshi's Island, Mario Kart Super Circuit, Metroid Fusion, Wario Ware Inc, and Mario vs. Donkey Kong.
To double check acceptance into the program click on the eShop News. The Ambassador Program acceptance message will be listed there stating that "You are a Nintendo 3DS Ambassador!"
On September 1st, 2011, the 10 free NES titles will be available for download before they go on sale to the rest of the 3DS community. By the end of 2011 the 10 free exclusive GBA titles will be released.
If your 3DS is registered to Club Nintendo, before you start your downloads, you will receive coins for each game downloaded. This is an added little bonus for Club Nintendo users who collect and spend coins.
Do not forget to connect to the eShop by August 11th, 11:59pm (EST) to qualify for the 20 free game titles.
