Free 3DS games for early adopters detailed, dated

Ten NES games and ten Game Boy Advance ones exclusive to current 3DS owners

Following today's unexpected 3DS price cut announcement, Nintendo said it would offer 20 free downloadable games to early adopters in a bid to prevent them "regretting purchasing" the system.


The 3DS Ambassador Programme is open to anyone who owns a 3DS system and uses a wireless broadband internet signal to connect to the Nintendo eShop at least once before August 12.

Beginning September 1, eligible users will be able to download ten NES games for free including Super Mario Bros., Donkey Kong Jr., Balloon Fight, Ice Climber and The Legend of Zelda. These will be released later in the year as paid downloadable games for other 3DS owners.

By the end of 2011, Nintendo will also offer Ambassadors ten exclusive Game Boy Advance Virtual Console games. These will include Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3, Mario Kart: Super Circuit, Metroid Fusion, WarioWare, Inc.: Minigame Mania and Mario vs. Donkey Kong. Nintendo says it currently has no plans to make these games available to the general public on 3DS in the future.
