Nintendo Offers Early Buyers of 3DS NES Games

Nintendo may have slashed the price of the 3DS recently, but they have not forgotten their 3DS fans. They gave them the name of 3DS Ambassador and will offer them 20 free downloads. Best of all, some of those downloads will include the old school NES games. Ten of the twenty will be NES games, with some of them being made available as soon as September 1st. The list of the NES games is the following.

Super Mario Bros
Donkey Kong Jr
Balloon Fight
Ice Climber
The Legend of Zelda
Wrecking Crew
Zelda II: The Adventure of Link
NES Open Tournament Golf

The games should make the fans happy, but as for the newest fans, this does not seem fair. NES games are semi rare to find and not very often released for new consoles. However, some NES games were released for the virtual Wii console. It it also stated that these games will be released to the public as downloads later on.

Do you think they should release the games to the general public as actual games and not downloads? I do, I think that would only be fair for them to do. Sure, they do not have to release all 10, but 3 to 5 would be decent. They could even have fans vote on which ones should come out. That would allow them to get some important feedback, but also please a larger group of supporters. So Nintendo if you are reading this, please seriously consider releasing a couple NES games to the public as a whole.

    Oh look, it’s yet another writer who doesn’t research jack **** before writing something like he/she is a total expert on everything. Welcome to the club known as “Cancer of the Internet”.

    Nintendo already stated that they are releasing all of the NES games to the public with updated features at a later date, however these will cost money. Those people who downloaded the games via the Ambassador Program will be able to update their own copies for free. In addition, the other 10 games to be given out will be Game Boy Advance games, five of which have been revealed and the other five of which will be revealed closer to the release date, which is later in the fall.

    Weren’t these already all released on Wii Virtual Console? I don’t understand why these are “extremely rare”.
