Reminder: Register for the 3DS Ambassador Programme

It's the last day so fire up your 3DS

Those that picked up a Nintendo 3DS before the price cuts - and are probably looking at it with a little bit of malice in your hearts now - should connect to the system's eShop today to qualify for the 3DS Ambassador Programme.


Today is the last day to register and become eligible to download the NES games from September and Game Boy Advance games later in the year, that are being offered as an act of good will for early adopters.

Here's what Nintendo Europe had to say when it announced the programme earlier this month:

"The programme will enable these Nintendo 3DS owners to download 10 NES games and 10 Game Boy and Game Boy Advance games for free.

"To be registered for this programme, the Nintendo 3DS owners simply need to connect to the Nintendo eShop before the 12th of August. The free software will then be made available at a later stage."

What are you waiting for? Get to it.

Nintendo America boss Reggie Fils-Aime has admitted the 3DS needed better first-party games and the eShop at launch.
