Nintendo Customer Service States That The Ten Free Gameboy Advance Games Are Still Coming This Year

Nintendo customer service is sending out responses to worried gamers to confirm to them that the ten free Gameboy Advance ambassador games are still coming this year. Nintendo has still yet to confirm an exact date for the games, but rest assured they’re coming.

“Thanks for writing and for your patience in waiting for a response during this busy time of year. I can certainly appreciate your interest in the exclusive Game Boy Advance titles that will be offered through the Ambassador Program! In answer to your question, regardless of rumors you have heard, the Game Boy Advance Virtual Console games are still scheduled to become available sometime before the end of 2011. I know you were hoping for a more definitive timeframe, but please rest assured that more details will be made available closer to when the titles are ready for release.

To be sure you are notified about the games as they are available, please be sure to download the Ambassador Certificate from the same place you downloaded your NES games. You will also need to make sure that notifications for this application are enabled. When we release the titles, any updates regarding this program will be sent via notifications for the Ambassador Certificate”

          1. true dat!! besides even if i didnt know it was a troll already which IT was….. it was too long so cba to read it
            All in all trolls fail!

      1. U have no life. Zelda always has a diffrent story and you should know Trolls fail when using Caps because it makes comments look Bull.

      1. This guy just stated that a game would be better off played on the Playstation Move. That automatically and officially makes anything and everything he has said and every will say invalid. Just wanted to point that out.

    1. WHAT!? Mario Kart 7 sucks major ass. its boring,levels are repetitive,lame unlockables,crappy vehicles,low battery life and really its getting old, besides the fact its way over rated. 3ds games suck major ass they’re boring. 3ds has ugly caca graphics. it has gamecube graphics smh. graphics is everything. graphics=power=might=force=future. of course to nintendo graphics isn’t everything because they are poor smucks who lost billions. ninty games are way to easy and boring, hell half the games are easy like new smb. that play 4 u=fail.
      VITA 360=FUTURE. GOOD MIYAMOTO RETIRE I KNOW AFTER HE SAW PS4 HE WAS PUT TO SHAME. SO LONG MIYAMOTO YOUR IDEAS WERE GETTING LAME,OLD STALE LIKE UR LATEST CACA CRAP CALLED MARIO TENNIS. RIP NINTENDO.

      1. have you played StarFox or Dead Or Alive Dimensions? There my fav 3DS games and there mature also.

        Miyamoto wont retire soon. He still has a long time.

        You know… remember when you played the Sega Mega drive? You can’t say it sucked because of its graphics because they were the best graphics for their time.

        Handhelds can not have graphics the same as main home consoles.

      2. I NW UR SO TRIGHT ABRAR THS I HRAST LAHY BARO I MWEAN WHAOU9TOAS UPE YEAR WIHT FLEDQ QND ANOTW MIYANOWNOTO THINS SYKRWANRD WSOWLRD DXAN BE THRE DEj THAWS STUO[PDI ANDA OIT SUJX AN MARNOKML KRET 7O9 RJLELY SUOKLS VIUHBNATJA ROX AN;LJ COLKJSMDL;ANLNM IS LGME BESET OLJECSF THJ

    1. Ha, it’s been a confusing day. The customer service repressive that told Sal the games weren’t coming until Jan- April must have genuinely been misinformed. Sorry for the confusion!

  1. “Merry Christmas Nintendo 3DS Owners! Take a look in your eshop stocking for your GBA games”

    Sigh…

    INB4 Dec 31 11:59pm

  2. Maybe it’s gonna be available for the last hour of 2011 then the service will be expired January 1st. That’d suck. Anyways, they still haven’t mentioned FIVE of the 10 games which worries me.

  3. As long as we’re still getting the games, I could honestly care less when they come out exactly, though I certainly hope its this year. I appreciate being offered the games to begin with.

  4. Any pokemon game will be beautiful to me .Wait ! Where will be the place that they are giving out the gameboys consoles .If it is out of Tongatapu or New Zealand I cant make it .If you guys have shipping to Tongatapu that will be wonderful, reply to me if you guys have shipping and I will reply to you guys my post code on Facebook . :)

    1. No, you download them just like the NES games. If, of course, you bought your 3DS and went onto the eShop at least once before the price cut. If not, give up all hope of getting ten free GBA games. You can buy the NES games sometime later, they’ve said.

    1. Sal isn’t a random person, he’s a regular poster on the MNN FB page. I’m 100% certain he was told this information, but it’s most likely that the rep gave him incorrect information. It was too late for me to check with Nintendo UK as it’s 3am here. Apologies for the confusion!

      1. Regular poster or not, he’s still nothing more than a face in the crowd. He doesn’t automatically have super special awesome secret inside contacts and his words should always be taken with a grain of salt. If I posted on each of your news stories would I be trusted then too if I said something as crazy as “Wii U to launch on August 4th, 2012” and claimed I spoke to a person from Nintendo to get said info? I love your site a lot, Sickr, really do but this is a new low.

        1. Yes, you could build people’s trust then break it.

          Also, this is called “MyNintendoNews” … Key word, “news.” No source of information is perfect, even from Nintendo themselves, I.E. November’s 3DS firmware update… Hmm?

          Sickr filters and provides the info as well as any other news source… Generally better.

    1. The 5 remaining games will prob be kirby mystic mirror, DKC1, Zelda game, Spongebob squarepants movie, and Jimmy Neutron attack of the twonkies. I’m calling it now.

      1. I want Donkey Kong country 3 remake! But i bet it won’t happen because Rare made it and they won’t allow their games to be on VC.

  5. This is dead set bullshit. Nintendo are holding off until boxing day. I would put money on it. They are holding off so us suckers will purchase games in the stores and push the stock value up so that CEOs and execs at Nintendo don’t lose their fucking jobs. I’ve had it with Nintendo treating my business like a joke. This will be my last nintendo console and I’ve had them all including every gen of the ds.

    1. To be honest, they really didn’t need to give early adopter any free games. They showed you the system and its launch games, they told you that the eShop would be late in the game, the eShop was a new service from Nintendo, so it wouldn’t have new games right away, etc. They are giving you those games as an apology, but they didn’t have to do that. Even if they announce the release date for those, you would not have them until that day. If you’re not going to buy any more Nintendo consoles just because they haven’t given you some free games, then there’s no hope for you. And even if you do get them, I’m sure you, and other people, would complain because a game you wanted was not in there.

      I got my 3DS on day one, so I’m part of the ambassador program as well. I want to play those games, but I have other games to play at the moment, so to me, it’s better to give me the games when there’s less game output. If you’re desperate to play those games, then I guess you have no other games to play, which says a lot about you since this is one of the most hectic holiday we’ve had in a whule.

      1. Sure they didn’t have to give them to you, but it was mainly to keep the more angry fans. I mean they already had just one good first party game at the time (OoT 3D) and if they dropped the price by eighty dollars just like that, it would really anger some people. They want to keep the fans, so they treat us with twenty games.

  6. the good thing lates to come but just wait gyes.pation.i just want 1 thing from gba.i want a pokemon game.i never played pokemon r/s.or emrald.

      1. My best shot at a translation:
        “The good thing comes to the one who waits, but just wait guys. Patient.(?) I just want one thing from Gameboy Advance. I want a Pokemon game. I have never played Pokemon Ruby, Saphire, or Emerald.

  7. the only way to stop this type of confusion is to set that date and we all will relax, i will still buy from Nintendo myself.

  8. when i saw this article title my eyes popped! and the main reason is cos theres only like 21 days left till 2012 so that means we’ll be getting them sometime soon!! i mean…. they wouldn’t be stupid enough hopefully to give us them as a xmas present on 24th or 25th of december…. cos i mean… we have other games to play by then such as (for me) prof layton and mario kart 7 :DDDD and other people have skyward sword to LOOK FORWARD TO (COS ITS FUCKING AWESOME NO MATTER WHAT ANYONE SAYS IMO) and super mario 3d land which is also brill!

  9. Nintendo!!! you better give me it on Xmas because thats my Xmas present i want most!!!!!! i don’t want anything else!!!!!

    1. “I don’t want a lot for Christmas. Their is just one thing I need. I don’t care about no presents underneath the Christmas tree. All I want for Christmas… are ambassador games…woooooohoo baby!”

  10. i’ve heard the 5 yet to be announced gba games are, britney’s dance beat, power rangers: ninja storm, the incredible hulk, lego knights kingdom and elf bowling.

    1. I’d play elf bowling. At least until I get Mario Kart 7. And I don’t care how bad MK7 is – it’s a frickin’ Mario Kart. Even the worst Mario Kart is better than a lot of the games out there.

      Just waiting for a 3ds crystal chronicles game

  11. This is awfully familiar… didn’t the whole ‘ambassador games not out til next year/will be out in December’ news get posted before based on some officia Nintendo website being wrong? I guess Nintendo’s customer service/writers/marketing don’t seem to be acting very consistently.
