Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Program: Claim your Games!

On Monday, September 1st, Nintendo made available the first ten NES games in the 3DS Ambassador Program.

The titles include:

  • Ambassador Certificate (an introductory video)
  • Ice Climber
  • Zelda II
  • Yoshi
  • Balloon Fight
  • Donkey Kong Jr.
  • NES Open Tournament Golf
  • Metroid
  • The Legend of Zelda
  • Wrecking Crew
  • Super Mario Bros.
To claim these titles, simply follow the instruction below:
  • Before you begin, you’ll need to be within reach of a Wi-Fi hotspot or Wireless Internet (such as produced by Netgear appliances) signal.
  1. Tap on Nintendo eShop and wait for it to load.
  2. Once loaded, navigate to the far left corner of your options, until you reach Settings / Other.
  3. Select Settings / Other.
  4. Scroll down until you spot “Your Downloads,” tap it.
  5. Scroll down until you see the titles listed above, tap “Redownload” on a title of your choice.
  6. Repeat this process until you have downloaded all the available titles. The titles will be transferred to your 3DS main menu where you may access them at any time.
Each of these titles were produced before the year 2000, and may easily be considered “classic games.” There is little instructions for new players, and you are expected to figure out things on your own – such is the way of the classics.
To receive continual updates regarding the Ambassador Program, be sure to download the Ambassador’s Certificate and activate SpotPass.
