Game Boy games exclusive to 3DS Ambassadors

Having confirmed an unexpected 3DS price cut earlier today, Nintendo has now detailed how it intends to reward those who paid out full price for the system just a few weeks ago.

Every current 3DS owner will be entitled to ten free NES games and ten free Game Boy Advance games when they become available.

All current owners have to do is sign in to the Nintendo eShop at least once before midnight on August 11th. Doing this will automatically enrol them as a Nintendo 3DS Ambassador.

The Game Boy selection, which until now had not been confirmed, will include several top-quality games including Yoshi’s Island, Mario kart: Super Circuit, Metroid Fusion, WarioWare Inc and Mario vs Donkey Kong.

Interestingly, Nintendo reckons all these titles will be available exclusively to Ambassadors and that it has “no plans” to make them available to the general public.

The NES titles on offer will include Super Mario Bros, Donkey Kong Jr, Ice Climber and The Legend of Zelda. They will all be released this year, but Ambassadors will be able to download them without charge.
