3DS Early Adopters Getting Ten More Free Games This Friday

And they're ten of the Game Boy Advance's best titles.


Anyone who picked up a 3DS and signed up for an eShop account before the system's $80 price drop over the summer has already been treated to ten free downloadable NES games for the 3DS's virtual console, and now they're about to get ten more—this time from the Game Boy Advance's library. It's all part of the 3DS Ambassador Program, Nintendo's way of saying "We know it sucks big time you paid so much for this system, but please don't sell it on eBay."

They're like a divorced father who see his kids every two weeks but takes them to the carnival every time. That's fine with us, though, since the list of free games coming in two days is pretty incredible:

  • F-Zero Maximum Velocity
  • Super Mario Advance 3
  • Zelda: The Minish Cap
  • Fire Emblem Seima no Kouseki
  • Kirby & the Amazing Mirror
  • Mario Kart Advance
  • Mario vs Donkey Kong
  • Metroid Fusion
  • Wario Land Advance
  • Made in Wario

If you're unfamiliar with any of these, then you must have really missed out back in the day. This is practically a hall of fame for the system, and more than justifies the initial entry price for the 3DS. Does this final gesture sate your endless rage, or are you still resentful that they lowered the price so soon after the system's launch? Vent in the comments or on Twitter or Facebook.
