The Game Boy Advance titles for the the 3DS ambassador program has been announced and I was surprised at the quality of the games being offered for free. I was even more surprised, however, to find out that Australians are able to get hold of these games at the same time as the rest of the world. Tomorrow to be precise! Has the whole world gone topsy turvy?
Call me cynical, but I'm so used to having to wait longer than the rest of the world for this kind of stuff, particularly from Nintendo. But apparently from 1am on December 16 Australian 3DS ambassadors will have access to the following games for free:
F-Zero: Maximum Velocity Super Mario Advance 3: Yoshi’s Island Legend of Zelda: 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
If you can't find something that excites you in that list, I don't know why you bothered buying a 3DS to begin with! Personally, I'm quite happy for the opportunity to play through Yoshi's Island again. I might even try and finish The Minish Cap, which I gave up on last time round for some reason.
However, I'm probably most excited for Metroid Fusion, which is one of my favourite handheld games ever.
I'm honestly thinking of staying up until 1am tonight to download some of these.
