On September 1st, 3DS owners who are part of Nintendo’s Ambassador program will be able to download the first batch of ten games. In the original announcement, we learned of five NES games that would be made available: Super Mario Bros., Donkey Kong Jr., Balloon Fight, Ice Climber, and The Legend of Zelda. According to this tweet by Nintendo of America, we can add Metroid, NES Open Tournament Golf, Wrecking Crew, Yoshi, and Zelda II: The Adventure of Link to that list. Yup, sounds about right.
The two Zelda games make sense, what with this year being the franchise’s 25th anniversary, but friggin’ Golf? And Wrecking Crew? There’s a new Kid Icarus game coming out soon that could have used some extra exposure through a re-release of the original. I can also only hope that the omission of Kirby’s Adventure means that the GBA remake, Nightmare in Dream Land, will be one of the ten GBA games that will be made available at a later date. But the games are free, so whatev.
