Full List Of Free Famicom Games For 3DS Owners

Back in July, Nintendo announced it was dropping the 3DS's price from US$250 to $US170. To make it up to those who shelled out full price, Nintendo launched its 3DS "ambassador program",

The program offers gamers 20 free games: half of them NES (Famicom in Japan) and the other half Game Boy Advance titles.

When the service was originally revealed, Nintendo stated folks could snag NES Virtual Console games like Super Mario Bros., Donkey Kong Jr., Balloon Fight, Ice Climber and The Legend of Zelda.

Today in Japan, Nintendo released the full list of Famicom Virtual Console games: Super Mario Bros., Donkey Kong Jr., Balloon Fight, Ice Climber, The Legend of Zelda, Wrecking Crew, Mario Open Golf, Yoshi's Egg, Metroid, and Zelda II: The Adventure of Link.

Nintendo of America has not yet confirmed which NES titles will be available, but it's highly likely that they will be localised versions of these games. Kotaku is following up.


    Zelda 1 and 2 - cool

    Wrecking Crew = seriously, wtf?!?

    Nintendo's concept of "classic" games seems to be getting more and more obscure...

    Snes game would be better, but hey they're free.

    To be quite honest, the only games that I'm disappointed to see are "Yoshi's Egg" & "Wrecking Crew". The other games are freakin sweet!!! :)

    Nintendo, why don't you just give us a $100 point credit and actually put some proper effing games up there, now and every bloody week.
    It's not like you have hundreds to choose from or anything.
    For a company on the back foot i can't believe they are throwing money down the drain by not releasing at least a dozen games a week, and not that 'just made and released' crap.

    Don't know why people are bitching, there are only a couple questionable entries. The rest are classics.

    Why don't for the Gba Games they Give us the Mother 1&2 Compilation and Mother 3 Translated of-course Mother 1&2 is already translated and mother 1 on it was re-translated from earthbound Zero and we Already got Earthbound so there you go and the fan translation of mother 3 is great! so there is my input

      I'm wondering if you could give us some punctuation.
