Nintendo 3DS rolls out free games offer
Thursday 01 September 2011
Ten free NES games now await Nintendo 3DS owners who bought and registered the handheld prior to August 12.
Best-known among them are the classics Super Mario Bros, The Legend of Zelda I and II, Metroid, and Donkey Kong Jr.
Yoshi (aka Mario & Yoshi), Balloon Fight, Wrecking Crew, Ice Climber and Mario Open Golf (aka Open Tournament Golf) complete the line-up.
The games can be downloaded to each qualifying 3DS by accessing the eShop via WiFi connection, and navigating first to the Settings / Other menu, then the Your Downloads list, and finally tapping Redownload.
All ten are expected to make their way onto the eShop as purchasable items, with various enhancements included and deployed to existing copies at no extra charge.
Nintendo announced the 3DS Ambassador Program in conjunction with a deep price cut that shaved off $80, ¥10,000 and around €50/£50 for those that plumped for the 3DS after that August 12 deadline.
