Nintendo Ambassadors: Your 10 Free NES Games Might Be These

It was less than a month ago that Nintendo had dropped the price of the 3DS in order to combat low demand for the new, revolutionary handheld. Early adopters were compensated for missing out on an $80 price drop by having the ability to opt-in to the Nintendo Ambassador Program, a program giving those who bought a 3DS before August 12th 20 free games, 10 from the NES, and 10 from the Game Boy Advance.

This morning, Nintendo listed the free NES games that 3DS owners in Japan will receive, which will find their way to Ambassador’s 3DS systems on Thursday.

Here’s the full list:

  • Super Mario Bros. 
  • Donkey Kong Jr.
  • Balloon Fight
  • Ice Climber
  • The Legend of Zelda
  • Wrecking Crew
  • NES Open Tournament Golf
  • Yoshi
  • Metroid
  • Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

Not a bad list. Keep in mind that many of these will likely be the same for North American owners, but Nintendo of America hasn’t confirmed anything yet. We’ll keep you updated if this list is any different.

Personally, I never got a chance to play Zelda II, so I hope this list is true. What say you, gamers?
