3DS Ambassador Program and 10 Free Games

If you were like me and was one of the early adopters of a Nintendo 3DS, you probably felt a little betrayed with the recent $80 price drop down to $169.99.  In an effort to not completely alienate people who bought their portables early, they initiated the 3DS Ambassador Program, which gives these people access to 20 free games - 10 NES games, and 10 SNES games - to download.  The first 10 games, all NES games, were just released to 3DS Ambassadors yesterday, which included:

  • Super Mario Bros.
  • Metroid
  • Balloon Fight
  • Donkey Kong Jr.
  • Wrecking Crew
  • Yoshi
  • Ice Climbers
  • NES Open
  • The Legend of Zelda
  • Zelda II: The Adventures of Link

It took me less than 8 minutes to download all 10 titles, despite people's initial complaints that the process is long.

Don't forget that there's still a whole batch of 10 SNES games left to download come mid September!
