The Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Program Is Live Right Now

If you’re among the few suckers early adopting enthusiasts who purchased your Nintendo 3DS before they announced the steep price drop, the day Nintendo makes good on their meek apologies has finally arrived. At midnight this morning, the 3DS Ambassador program went live. That means – if you activated your membership in the ambassador program by visiting eShop at least once – you now have access to 10 free original NES games.

Naturally, Nintendo has made the process as convoluted as possible. To download your free games, login to eShop, scroll to the left and select the “Settings/Other” button. Now choose the “Your Downloads” button. Here, below the games and applications you’ve already downloaded, you’ll see the 10 free games listed nonchalantly, as if they’ve just kind of always been there hanging out and stuff. Click the ‘redownload’ next to each of them and you’ll be on your way to recreating the thrilling, fast paced gaming experience of 1988.

In case you’ve forgotten, the 10 free NES games are:

* Super Mario Bros.
* Donkey Kong Jr.
* Balloon Fight
* Ice Climber
* The Legend of Zelda
* Wrecking Crew
* Mario Open Golf
* Yoshi’s Egg
* Metroid
* Zelda: Adventures of Link
