The Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Program is a special program made by Nintendo for the Nintendo 3DS. It was targeted to people who bought the Nintendo 3DS before the price drop. Users receive free NES and Game Boy Advance Virtual Console games through the program that are not planned to be released to the general public. To become a "Nintendo 3DS Ambassador", the user had to log into the Nintendo eShop on or before August 11, 2011. The NES games were released August 29, 2011 in Japan, August 31, 2011 in North America and September 1, 2011 in Europe and Australia. It is unknown when the Game Boy Advance games will be released. A free "Ambassador Certificate" was released along with the NES games, which was a video that asked the user of the 3DS if they would like to receive notifications about the program.
