What Early Adopters Get For Free

Nintendo has made some pretty radical moves with its 3DS recently. They slashed the price from $250 to $170 less than six months after its launch. They’re working hard to get some triple A titles to gamers to show them why the system is worth owning (Starfox 64 3D may be the first step to doing that, but it’s yet another 3D remake of an older game; when’s the new stuff going to get here?). In short, they’re doing pretty much everything they can to salvage a quality system that got off to an admittedly shaky start. This all fine and dandy for everyone who’s been waiting for a reason to buy a 3DS (whether that meant waiting for a cheaper price or better games), but what about those of us who trusted in Nintendo right from the start and got a 3DS during the “launch window”? Well, Nintendo is going to take care of us by releasing ten games for free for all of those 3DS Ambassadors; a fancy title for early adopters. We already knew some of the titles, and recently, they revealed a few more.

We already knew about games such as Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Balloon Fight, Ice Climbers and Donkey Kong Jr., but here are the other titles you’ll be able to download starting September 1st assuming you were one of the early adopters of the 3DS system. Metroid from the NES -  which is a interesting addition since we’re also getting Metroid Fusion, Yoshi - which is actually a puzzle game kind of like Tetris, NES Open Golf Tournament - one of the early iterations of Mario Golf, Wrecking Crew - a unique Mario spin-off title where Mario is, well, on a wrecking crew instead of a plumber,  and Zelda II: The Adventure of Link - which isn’t the most popular Zelda adventure as it did a lot of things differently from the classic formula.

So those are the other five NES classics we’ll be getting soon. What do you think of the selections? Does it help soother the pain of having paid more for the system knowing you’ll get these titles for free?
