As promised, Nintendo has made good on the second half of their 3DS Ambassador program. Ten Game Boy Advance games are now available to download for those who purchased their 3DS system before the price drop. And, according to Nintendo, these games will never be made available to non-Ambassador 3DS owners.
And if you believe that, I’ve got a Cheese Bridge to sell you.
Here’s the complete list of GBA games you can download today:
- F-Zero: Maximum Velocity
- Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones
- Kirby & The Amazing Mirror
- The Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap
- Mario Kart: Super Circuit
- Mario vs. Donkey Kong
- Metroid Fusion
- Super Mario Advance 3: Yoshi’s Island
- Wario Land 4
- WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgames
Along with instructions on how to download them (shamelessly stolen from when the NES Ambassador titles were released):
1. Turn on your 3DS. (I tried it when it was off, it doesn’t work.)
2. Head to the eShop.
3. Scroll all the way to the left side, to the “Settings/Other” pane.
4. Click on “Your Downloads” – (the third brick down.)
5. Scroll past all the other titles you’ve purchased (if any, you cheapskates!)
6. You’ll find the free Ambassador titles waiting for you! (You have to click “Re-Download” to obtain them.)
