If you are one of the people who went out and bought a 3DS early, only to see the price cut, then you will be pleased to know that you can now grab the 10 free titles that Nintendo promised its early adopters, although you will need to have signed up to be eligible.
Interestingly it’s not immediately obvious that the free games are there (thank goodness for the internet), instead you need to go into the eShop and scroll all the way to the left. Click on ‘Settings / Other’. Scroll down on that list and click on ‘Your Downloads’ to see your download history.
Once you scroll past everything you have downloaded there you will see the 10 free games, all you have to do next is download them all individually by pressing the redownload button, although you will need to repeat the steps above for all ten games.
We are unsure if Nintendo will streamline this process over the coming days, however considering you can grab, Super Mario Bros.,Donkey Kong Jr., Balloon Fight, Ice Climber, The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, NES Open Tournament Golf, Mario & Yoshi and Wrecking Crew, we are sure you won’t mind spending some time downloading them in this way.
Finally there is also an ‘Ambassador Certificate’ download, grab this, run it and hit the ‘Receive Notifications’ button on the lower screen and this will let you know when the 10 free GBA games become available.
