Nintendo’s Ambassador Program is Live!
The Ambassador program is upon you 3DS owners that purchased your 3DS before the cutoff date and have successfully logged into the eShop. Nintendo announced the other five games that would be accompanying the previously mentioned titles; here is the official list.
— Legend of Zelda
— Donkey Kong Jr.
— Super Mario Bros.
— Ice Climber
— Balloon Fight
— Zelda II – The Adventure of Link
— Wrecking Crew
— NES Open Tournament Golf
Now to access the download for the games can be a bit tricky. Please just follow the next steps to retrieve you free games.
— Log into the eShop
— Scroll all the way over to left to the “Settings/Other” icon and tap on it
— Scroll down to “Your Downloads” and tap on it
— If you have downloaded anything on the eShop the games will appear at the end of your list.
— Find the games and click “Redownload” and they will be downloaded to your 3DS
— Repeat all the steps for each title.
The reason they say redownload is because Nintendo added them to your account as if you already purchased them. This way you may re-download them if you decide to up your memory card or incase any error should occur. These games, for you that purchased a 3DS after the program, will be able to purchase these titles at a later date. These normally run around $5 on the Wii Virtual Console, so expect the same price to come down, but those of you with the program, that’s $50 worth of free games so far, not too shabby. Anyone else excited by these and is downloading them right now?
