As promised, Nintendo has released 10 free Game Boy Advance games as downloadable releases for “Ambassadors,” AKA the 3DS early adopters who bought the handheld before this past summer’s price drop
As of now, the games are only available for people who attained Ambassador status by linking their 3DS to the Internet before the price drop took effect. Ambassador status does not carry diplomatic immunity, but it does allow access to the following GBA games:
- F-Zero: Maximum Velocity
- Mario Kart: Super Circuit
- Wario Land 4
- Yoshi’s Island: Super Mario Advance 3
- Metroid Fusion
- Wario Ware Inc.: Mega Microgames
- KIrby & The Amazing Mirror
- Mario vs. Donkey Kong
- Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones
- The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap
To get the games, players can access the eShop from their 3DS, go to “Settings/Other” and access “Your Downloads.” The games appear as being available for “Redownload” on a list of any other titles a player has downloaded.
The releases follow an earlier batch of ten NES games,which included Super Mario Bros., Metroid, the Legend of Zelda and The Adventure of Link.
