News: Nintendo gives back - Early 3DS adopters get 20 free games

Earlier today Nintendo reviled a price drop for the 3DS of around a third off in all regions. If you already own the console however and felt a little cheated by that then Nintendo have adressed your concerns.

Providing you connect to the Nintendo eShop on your console before August 12 you will automatically be entered into the 3DS Ambassador program. A title which allows you access to 20 free games which you can download and play right on the system.

Ten of the games will be for the NES, including titles such as: Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Balloon Fight and Donkey Kong Jr. These games are scheduled to become paid downloadable games later on in the year, but the kind folks at Nintendo have said that Ambassador's will have access to them early and for free.

The other ten titles will consist of Game Boy Advance and Virtual Console games. Included are games such as: Yoshi's Island, Mario Kart, Mario vs. Donkey Kong and Super Circuit. Interestingly unlike the NES titles, Nintendo have stated that they have no plans to make these titles available to the public, meaning that they are exclusively for the 3DS Ambassadors.

That's not a bad offering from Nintendo, but will it be enough to leave early adopters not feeling cheated by the new price cut?
