3DS Ambassadors, These Might Be Your GBA Games



Nintendo’s price cut in August agitated many early 3DS owners, but to ease their pain was the revelation that they would be receiving 20 free games, 10 NES and 10 Gameboy Advance, for the 3DS Virtual Console before the end of 2011.

The NES titles were delivered back in September but the final GBA games haven’t been heard from in months. Apparently that’s all changed since some Japanese 3DS owners have received word from Nintendo that they would be getting their games on December 16th.

Nintendo was even nice enough to give them a list of the great titles, which is after the break.


Here’s the list of games Japanese gamers will be getting:

  • F-Zero Maximum Velocity
  • Super Mario Advance 3
  • The Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap
  • Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones
  • Kirby and the Amazing Mirror
  • Mario Kart Advance
  • Mario vs. Donkey Kong
  • Metroid Fusion
  • Wario Land 4
  • Wario Ware, Inc. Mega Microgame$

Now before gamers start screaming for joy, remember that this is the Japanese list. It might not be the list for the rest of the world, but it would be truly great if it was. Zelda, Metroid, Kirby, Wario, and Mario!?! It seems almost too good to be true.
