    Some people in Na have had luck going into their download history and finding ambassador games. It seems to be completely random which systems are getting them, but they are definitely there for some.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    To check to see if you have them, go into the eshop, tap menu, then tap settings/other. Then tap download history. Games will be in there if they are currently available to you.

    Don't fret if your games aren't showing up yet. It seems to be taking some time for Nintendo to update everyone's account. Perhaps they are doing it manually?

    Here is a video on how to download the games from the E-shop. Credit to Seaking.

    They are there for me too. I bought mine at launch. Maybe they are adding the games to accounts by System Serials? Early adopters get the games first?

    Edit: I guess not. Well, it's only a day early.

    I have a good 4 hours to go before I can check- I am meant to be going out tonight but this will cause me to be mysteriously taken ill! I don't know if when you bought it is as important as where, if they are doing it in batches of serial numbers

    i dont think you need too, i downloaded it and its just a video, didnt watch all of it yet though...

    EDIT: Ye its pretty useless, it just has an ugly certificate with a banner saying that if you wanna recieve updates for the ambassador program, such as when new titles are available, update your notification settings by tapping the receive button on the bottom screen in 4 different languages.

    tried smb, its like an exact rip of the nes game, and the graphics are fine.
