Nintendo releases 10 free Gameboy Advance games to 3DS Ambassadors

The wait is finally over. Nintendo has released the final 10 games for 3DS Ambassadors as a way of saying "Oops, sorry about that massive price drop after you bought the system for $250."

They are the following:
F-Zero: Maximum Velocity
Super Mario Advance 3: Yoshi's Island
Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap
Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones
Kirby & The Amazing Mirror
Mario Kart: Super Circuit
Mario vs. Donkey Kong
Metroid Fusion
Wario Land 4
WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgames

I can't wait to dig into these games. Some I have played before like Minish Cap, Yoshi's Island and Mario Kart, but it's been so long it'll be fun all over again.

The games are available if you logged into the eShop prior to the price drop. Here is how you get them:

1. Log into the eShop
2. Go all the way over to the left and click on Settings/Other
3. Click on Your Downloads
4. If you're an Ambassador, you'll see the list of games available which you'll be able to redownload.

It's kind of funky to "redownload" the game you haven't before, but that's the way to do it.

Enjoy these free games. It's pretty rare for a company to treat their customers like this.
