Just went onto the eShop and saw that the GBA games are now available. You can get them from the same purchase history section of the eshop that you likely went to to get the NES games that were previously released.
The list is the same as those announced for the other territories:

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 Microgame$

Really happy with this list myself as I have a few of these still sitting around somewhere unplayed or never got a chance to buy them.

I had no idea they were already up. Nintendo didn't even make an official announcement, at least not for the U.S.

Hopefully we will also get Club Nintendo Post-Play Surveys worth 10 Coins for each of these games as well. With the new digital rewards being offered at 100 and 150 Coins respectively, this would be a great way to get 100 Coins and another free game.

I have my eyes set on Mario vs. Donkey Kong: March of the Minis and Fluidity. I'm not sure how I feel about getting Xevious 3D or the original Mario Kart. I'm open to suggestions from other CAG's though. :)

Thanks OP! Just got them all. Yoshis Island is still as awesome as I remember it. Easily my personal favorite of the all the free games including the NES games.

Thanks! That reminded me I need to finish those surveys for the other games. And wow, I really hate the new Club Nintendo site... I can't see the survey dates like I used to (doesn't show years - just day).

What?! Shit. That might become a hassle for me and my tons and tons of pending surveys.

This is indeed far better than the new list. Still, I'm disappointed with no mario and luigi superstar saga. Zelda and fire emblem are the only rpgs (and I don't usually consider zelda to be an rpg, so I'm stretching a little.), which disappoints me. Oh well, free games are free games, and getting old school mario kart does make me happy.

I completely agree. Yoshi's Island is one of the best games I have played in the last 30 years of gaming. Mario and Yoshi's finest hour, a true classic! Thanks OP!

Awesome. I bought my 3DS used, and the previous owner had already downloaded the NES games. I'm really liking the way you can prepare downloads and then have them go in sleep mode instead of sitting there watching them.

Glad I didn't cave back then to become ambASSador, and waited until the $170 + $50GC deal to get a 3DS. Pretty sure I have all those except 1 or 2.


Oh man, LOL! I see what you did there, capitalizing ASS in ambassador, LOL LOL LOL! That's the funniest thing I've ever seen...

...................................

Got all 10 games downloaded already! Glad I didn't spend $30 on Minish Cap on ebay. Can't wait to start playing MC after work :D

Is this working right? I had trouble the one time I tried it though I'm not sure if it was because I was downloading stuff on my PS3 at the same time. The wireless of the 3DS seems extremely weak and sensitive.

Got them this morning. I thought the download process was a little less troublesome but not quite as fast and easy as I would have hoped. Oh well. Metroid Fusion is one of the best if not the best Metroid game EVER!

Hey, Scott. Your face looks like scrambled eggs, son.

Anyway, good assortment of games. Just add them to the backlog.

Any word if these titles will be available to non-ambassadors? Wouldn't mind picking up Metroid Fusion and Minish Cap again. Enjoyed both of them.
