Nintendo Announces Free GBA Games for Ambassadors

Calling all Nintendo Ambassadors! Are you ready to collect your next ten free games? According to Games Radar, you'll get your chance this Friday.

When Nintendo dropped the price of the 3DS by nearly $80 within six months of launch, they created an Ambassador program to thank all of us who bought the 3DS at its initial launch price. All you had to do was register your 3DS with Nintendo and then log into the eShop at least once. Enrolling granted you access to 20 free games, 10 of which were released earlier this year.

Now it's time to launch the next portion of the program. The first 10 games were NES Classics, and this next 10 are GBA games. Here is what you can choose from:

  • F-Zero: Maximum Velocity
  • Yoshi’s Island: Super Mario Advance 3
  • The Legend of Zelda: The 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

As you can see, this is a pretty strong list. All of these games were top GBA games in their day. A few notables are missing, such as The Link to the Past reboot, Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire, and Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, but no one can deny that these 10 games are fantastic.

Besides, they're free for Ambassadors! We shall take our free goodies and like it.
