Oh shit, the Download Later option actually works. Queued up the 10 games and they all downloaded while in in sleep mode.


Yep, ten games to unwrap...and added to my backlog lol

Thanks for posting, OP. I knew it was supposed to be before the end of the year, so I was on just last night checking to see if they were available yet.

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.


After selecting Download Later and getting past the next screen (I forget what it says) press Home then close the eShop app (press X). Close the 3DS and await your presents :) That's how it worked for me.

Especially Air Raid for 2600, Stadium Events and the gold Nintendo World Championships NES carts. I've got so many of those I've been burning them for heat to save on my electric bill.

There are rumors that people with brand new 3DS's (like people who bought them in the last couple of weeks), can download these for free, and that Nintendo has screwed something up.

Can anybody check on this, because I have a brand new one, untouched in the closet for my kids Xmas present, but I would open it up and try to download the games if this is true...

Anybody?

So, is this for everyone?

I guess Nintendo finally changed their mind, and figured that
in order to keep up with the competition, they have to start
releasing their GBA games on VC.

I haven't read anything mentioning that on the GameFAQs board and didn't see anything mentioning this on the NeoGAF forums, either. Where did you read about this?

Nintendo has stated that these are Ambassador-only games but my personal belief is that this will change at some point. Perhaps it will be some sort of membership program that will allow anyone access to these games (paid or free - who knows).

I already own 9 outta 10 of those games, big whoop. Why they just couldnt do two $40 vouchers on nintendo published games is beyond me.

Does anybody know anybody who has a 3DS that they have purchased recently, and they could have them see if it works? Supposedly, there is something wrong with Nintendo's server that most likely will be patched very soon. I'm trying to find out if it's worth it to open my brand new 3DS and try to download this stuff. Supposedly, there is some certain way to get the Ambassador's Certificate, and then you can download any of the games included with the program.

Basically, it's a loophole type thing. Kinda like when a website will accidentally have a game available for $4.99 when the game is a $59.99 game or something. I'm just hearing murmors about this from a few people on AIM, but I don't really have any concrete info on it.

Wish my Dad would've felt that way when he gave my sister and me the original GameBoy for Christmas. We were so excited, only to find out we got an empty box. He opened it because at the time he had been traveling for work and decided he wanted to use it on his trips. When he wrapped it for Christmas he apparently forgot to put it back in box. After a minute of confusion he ran to his room to grab the GameBoy for us.

Probably my favorite Christmas memory.

...and these free "exclusive" games don't? There are several people just in this thread saying that nintendo doesn't want their money.

LOL that is hilarious. I hope you weren't being sarcastic about your "favorite Christmas memory" part. :)

Amazing how some people still find a way to complain. I own all ten of these already, and I'm *still* thrilled.

I hope they put some of these games in the store for the non ambassador people who waited for bundles and such. I would love to play minish cap for fusion on my 3ds.

I'd expect them to be available at some point. I'd be kinda dumb to not sell them after they took the time to make the emulation work

Enjoying these games. I only owned 4 out of the 10 so it's pretty sweet for me.

Very happy with this list. I've always wanted to play Minish Cap, bought it on clearance years ago at Sears and never opened it, and now I get to keep it sealed for my collection and still have a way to play it! Kirby, Metroid, Wario..all awesome.

I am pretty sure Nintendo said the gba games will not be released to non ambassadors since they have no plans to bring any gba game to vc on 3ds and the ones for ambassadors are not perfect emulation like the gbc and gb games already on vc. But you do have hope that the nes games may eventually make it to the other players at a price.

The key word is "more" and no, I don't think these free games cost them more.
