    I'm really glad I got one now. I bought the Zelda special edition with OoT and I really do like the 3D effect. I also just got the 3D Xevious using coins on Club nintendo and that is pretty good, too.

    And, I think you are right. If they do a LttP remake I'll be in heaven with this thing.

    Full list:

    Super Mario Advance 3: Yoshi's Island
    Mario Kart: Super Circuit
    Metroid Fusion
    WarioWare Inc. Mega Microgames
    Mario vs. Donkey Kong
    Wario Land 4
    Kirby & The Amazing Mirror
    Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones
    Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap
    F-Zero: Maximum Velocity

    That's some good GBA gaming right there.

    Other than the potential for having saving some money, I have zero regrets about early adoption on the 3DS.

    I've been enjoying it, even in the lean times.

    The software is shaping up now, and the ambassador software is good.

    The GameCube with Game Boy Player is still the system to own if you're a Zelda fan. It offers Zelda (On GCN or GBA), Adventures of Link (Ditto), Link to the Past (Plus Four Swords, although it's multiplayer only in its' original incarnation), regular and Master Quest Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, Wind Waker, Twilight Princess, Four Swords Adventures, Link's Awakening and LADX, the two Oracle games, and the Minish Cap.

    Too bad they didn't translate F-Zero Climax and include that here. I'm hoping that will see an official release on the 3DS someday when they start selling GBA games (Something we all know they're going to do, although they state they have no current plans to do so).

    While there are a few games that didn't interest me in their freebies and I already own what did interest me, I think this was a nice move to reward the early adapters that bought the system before the price drop.

    I totally misunderstood and thought this whole time we were getting regular old Gameboy games. Now I'm stoked! That's a good games list. I was actually thinking about playing through Minish Cap again but am having problems finding my cart in my mess :P

    Just so you know these games are for Ambassadors only, otherwise known as people who bought the 3DS before the price drop. So if you have a 3DS from after the price drop you won't be getting these games. I couldn't tell this from your post.

    I'm sure he'll be able to eventually purchase what he wants. Their wording was to the effect that they have no current plans to make these games available for sale.

    That certainly doesn't mean that they never will. They didn't go to the trouble of programming a GBA emulator just to release 10 freebies. I suspect we will see a GBA section added to the download store eventually and for all 10 of these games to be made available over the course of the next couple of years.

    Really bad choice that Not So Amazing Mirror was chosen rather than Nightmare in Dreamland. F Zero Maximum Velocity sucks as well. Everything else isn't bad.

    I don't really need these though when I own atleast half of them and those same games are also on my PSP.
    Everything in the above post is opinion unless stated otherwise.

    Aside from Yoshi's Island, I have never played any of these games. I can't wait to download them (I bought my 3DS one day before the price drop, and I didn't have time to return it).
    <Evan_G> i keep my games in an inaccessable crate where i can't play them

    Yeah, but Nightmare in Dreamland is just a remake of Kirby's Adventure for NES. They'd probably rather have a 3D classics version instead.

    I'd also rather have Metroid Zero Mission and Mario Advance 2 or 4, but hey, free is free.

    Also, downloading these will get you post play surveys on Club Nintendo. Now that they are offering DL titles for coins, you can get more free games through the Ambassador program.

    At least, I would guess they will offer post play surveys on CN...they did for the NES games...

    Crikey, I thought they decided pretty quickly which ten games everyone was getting.

    How can I put this? It seems kind of shabby that they've taken so long with this maneuver that was supposed to compensate those who missed out on the drop.

    The NES games have been out for quite sometime now. And for all we know, they've just recently wrapped up development of their GBA emulator.

    Doesn't strike me as a bad deal. It has only been a few months.

    Eh, they've been behind on most of the framework, archetechture and functionality of the 3DS since day one (lest we not forget, the thing launched without a web browser and online store) so them dragging their feet a bit on this is to be expected.

    The good news is that recent updates have been very good and things are looking up in general for the future viability of the device.

    Hey, while I'm on the subject, has anybody else noticed that the maximum master volume level seems to be higher/lounder since the last firmware update, or am I crazy?

    Awesome. I'm up too early and should go back to sleep but now I want to download these right away. The only one of these games that I actually own in physical form is Mario Kart and that has a lot of replay value so this is a really nice free gift.
