3DS Ambassador Tool is Now Open in North America

 For those who purchased the Nintendo 3DS handheld before August 12th, you are a Nintendo 3DS Ambassador, which means that you will be able to download 10 NES games free of charge starting September 1st, and by the end of this year, you’ll also receive 10 free GBA games.  All of the sudden, you may feel worried that somehow you aren’t a 3DS Ambassador, because it just sounds too good to be true.  For one thing, this offer is totally legit, and there’s a way to figure out if you made it onto the list.  Click the picture above or here to go to the Ambassador tool.  There, you’ll be able to type in your serial number on the back of your 3DS, and you can rest easy that you’ve made it.  Well, what are you waiting here for? - Greg Boe (admin)

Buy a 3DS at Walmart for $169.99 Today!

Most of you know by now that the 3DS Ambassador Program is only available to those who purchase the Nintendo 3DS before August 12 (this Saturday!), so most of you are planning on getting your 3DS before then to get 20 free games.  Today we were informed that Walmart is already selling the 3DS for $169.99, which is what everyone else will be doing later this week.  The only catch is that you guys actually have to get off your butts and go to the store, because this offer is only in-store, not online.  I’d say this is a great time to purchase a 3DS if you don’t already have one.                              Greg Boe (admin)

3DS Ambassador Program Games Will Earn You Coins on Club Nintendo

If you haven’t been keeping up with the latest news, Nintendo has decided to drop the 3DS price $80, and those who already purchased the handheld will receive 20 free games (10 NES & 10 GBA).  Most of you already know that much, but Nintendo has also recently announced that all 20 of the games are also eligible for coins on Club Nintendo if your system is linked to your account.  So if you think about it, after you complete all 20 surveys, you’ll have about 200 points added onto your account.  This would also be a good excuse to order that Giant AR Card! - Greg Boe (admin)

Costco Drops Nintendo 3DS Price Early

Costco (North America) has dropped the price of the 3DS early (it will be dropped everywhere on Aug. 12th), meaning that you can buy the 3DS now for the new $170 price and also get all the 3DS Ambassador-exclusive games by logging into the eShop.  If you have a Costco membership, but don’t have a 3DS yet, now would be a great time to get one. – Drew T.

A Short Video of Some of the Games Included in the Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Program

Most of you already know the list of some of the 20 games that will be available for free to all buyers of the Nintendo 3DS before the price gets cut on August 12th.  The video after the break put together by NintendoWorldReport is of all the games that have been announced so far, but in their original forms.  We have no idea if the 10 NES games will be updated in any way, but Nintendo has said: “Once the paid versions of the games are posted to the Nintendo eShop later in the year, the updated versions will be available to Ambassadors for download at no cost.”  Check out the video after the break! - Greg Boe (admin) Continue Reading →
