The Full GBA Advance Ambassador List For The 3DS

Nintendo's Amabassador Program is its way of rewarding Nintendo 3DS owners who purchased the device before its pricecut. There have already been a whole host of Famicom (Nintendo Entertainment System) games released free of charge. Up next, Game Boy Advance games. But which ones?

According to these photos, the following games will available for download on Dec. 16:

F-Zero Maximum Velocity

Super Mario Advance 3

The Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap

Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones

Kirby and the Amazing Mirror

Mario Kart Advance

Mario vs. Donkey Kong

Metroid Fusion

Wario Land 4

Wario Ware, Inc. Mega Microgame$

The photos look legit. However, I put a rumour tag on this, because Nintendo is apparently sending this list out to 3DS owners in Japan via 3DS. Apparently, because I have not yet received the message. Moreover, at the time of posting, Nintendo hasn't updated its Ambassador site.

Though, launching this the day before the Vita goes on sale, Dec. 17, shows Nintendo is playing for keeps in the handheld war.

    My little dance when i see Minish Cap

    I would make a comment about how Nintendo of Australia will give it's Ambassador members glorfyingly stuff all, but if I remember correctly there wasn't too disparity between the NES games released around the multiple regions, was there?

    Great list. Though with a few noticecable exceptions: The Advance Wars and Golden Sun games.

    Not a bad list at all. I'm glad Fire Emblem made the cut (and probably good advertising for the new 3DS one in the works).

    Zelda Minish cap is great cause i missed it. Fire Emlblem is good too, Sacred stones is ok, would prefer the First GBA fire emblem but this is good too :)

    Dissapointed there is no Pokemon.

    SUPER bummed that Mario 3 (Yoshi's Island) made the cut but not Mario 2 (Super Mario World). It's a double bummer, because there is already a Yoshi's Island 2 that is essentially the same game on DS, while Super Mario World is my favourite mario of all time and only available on GBA :(

    I hope they add more games to virtual console after this!

      Of course they will. I think choosing to give the Fire Emblem sequel (rather than the first English one on GBA) was a deliberate decision. That and they know they'll make a LOT of money by selling the Pokemon games again.

      That said, Nintendo's current eShop prices are criminal. I paid $9 for Link's Awakening. I paid less for many AAA Steam titles during sales.

    I hope this list is true. There are so many games I am excited about!

    Yep, got the notification 5 minutes ago. Wheeee, pumped for all, especially The Minish Cap and WarioWare.

    F-Zero Maximum Velocity
    -Never played a non-arcade F-Zero game. Looking forward to it!
    Super Mario Advance 3
    -Nyeh
    The Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap
    -Yes! So excited!
    Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones
    -Never played Fire Emblem, but always wanted to.
    Kirby and the Amazing Mirror
    -Kirby kan do no wrong
    Mario Kart Advance
    -Mario Kart always rocks
    Mario vs. Donkey Kong
    -Only played the sequels, always wanted the original.
    Metroid Fusion
    -Beaten already, but it's a great game
    Wario Land 4
    -Odd. But, cool.
    Wario Ware, Inc. Mega Microgame$
    -Nyeh.

    AND THAT'S IT FOR JOSH'S COMMENTARY THAT NO-ONE CARES ABOUT

      Also, the GBA Wariowares were the best Wariowares.

      Also also, it just occurred to me that they could probably put Twisted on there if they got it to use the 3DS's gyro sensors. Except having no rumble with it would suck balls.

    Epic list, Ninty... well done :)

    got it, got it, got it, etc. etc. ffffffffffffffffffaaaaaaaaaaaaaark

    Oh good.

    I can play Minish Cap on my 3DS instead of my DS. That's cool.

    Wasn't this promised months ago? thank god i'm not a handheld guy i'm proberly die from the persistance

      No they promised two sets. This set was due before the end of the year just before GBA games would hit the Nintendo store.

    fire emblem! oh nintendo ilu

    Wow that's a good list. I would have been happy with Fire Emblem by itself, let alone WarioWare, Zelda and Mario Kart. If I had bought the 3DS a week later and not gotten these, I would be raged.

    AH I loved Wario Land 4 one of the first games I got with my original GBA all those years ago. (And I really wanted Minish Cap but never got it)

    Minish Cap! fuck. yes.

    Was really excited to be seeing Pokemons. :/ Good to see there's some good Zelda there too, however.
