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
— Yoshi
— Wreck­ing Crew
— NES Open Tour­na­ment Golf
— Metroid
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?

    Real­ly excit­ed for Don­key Kong Jr., was one of my favorite games on the NES. I am glad they includ­ed Zel­da 2, played the first one to death, but nev­er played the sequel. Yes, hate me know, I have nev­er played Zel­da 2. But I do plan on play­ing them all, can nev­er turn a free game down; and I have played plen­ty of crap­py free games.

    Zel­da 2 is weird, but it’s a clas­sic in its own right. It’s also hard­er than Zel­da 1 by far. Wreck­ing Crew is an old favorite, as is Bal­loon Fight. SMB and Zel­da and Metroid go with­out say­ing, and Ice Climber was­n’t a bad title either. Pret­ty much every­thing here is a qual­i­ty game. My wi-fi is being dif­fi­cult, so the down­load isn’t work­ing at the moment.

    Why bring back the “Clas­sic Arcade” titles the DS? Has this not been made avail­able on every oth­er plat­form already?
    Not a DS own­er since Gen 1 so I don’t know what they may have upgrad­ed but I can’t imag­ine this being a way to pro­mote busi­ness…

    It has been done to death, but most of my “clas­sic” games and con­soles are boxed up and not eas­i­ly acces­si­ble, so this as being free to me since I was an ear­ly 3DS adopter is great, would I spend the $50 for all of these, prob­a­bly not. Char­coal I had no idea what Wreck­ing Crew was until I down­loaded it. A quirky title but fun none the less.
