3DS Game Boy Advance Ambassador Games Announced

Mario Kart: Super CircuitThose of us who sprang for a Nintendo 3DS before the price dropped by $80 have been waiting to hear when the company will offer up the ten free Game Boy Advance games promised to the early adopters (otherwise known as the 3DS Ambassadors Club).  Now comes word that the list of free GBA titles has been finalized along with the release date.  Charge up your 3DS battery for this Friday, December 16, when (according to GamesRadar) you'll be able to snag the following games if you're part of the Ambassadors Club:

  • 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 Microgames!

Those are all solid titles and I think you'll be pleased with all of them, particularly the ones you missed out on the first time around.  Mario vs Donkey Kong is criminally underrated and a much-loved return to the old Donkey Kong formula before the marching minis took over that franchise.  Wario Land 4 is the best platformer on the system.  Kirby & The Amazing Mirror brings a Metroid-like exploration factor to the famous pink puffball's world.  I'm sure you know Yoshi's Island, Mario Kart, and Metroid Fusion well enough by now.  There's a lot to like here and I'm glad that Nintendo has kept its promise to deliver some extra value to early adopters.
