    Someone already posted this in another thread but I guess it's worth making a whole new thread for it.

    I woke up this morning (a little late), saw the blue light, read the SpotPass message and jumped to the eShop. I found that the games could be downloaded despite the fact that the SpotPass message said the 16th.

    If you want proof, click here.

    Some posters are reporting that they cannot download the games by changing their region to Australia.

    EDIT: Great, I made a typo in the title. Can someone correct it for me? >.>;
    Thanks for the correction.

    But did we get it before Japan? I don't think so. My point was that I don't think even Japan has the new games yet. I could be wrong though,

    I'm actually overseas in China, so yes you should be able to get them when your region releases them. Since starting the download before posting this thread, I still haven't finished. Still two to go. Damn crappy Chinese internet.

    IKR, Internet here is slow-ass.

    Hopefully, you're right.

    Now to wait until NoA releases those precious bytes.

    Great news for you Australians! I don't have a rush since this IS after all old titles. But I'm really looking forwards boosting thru Metroid Fusion one time and maybe fire up Zelda: Minish Cap.

    Even as a joke, saying "Screw you Australia" isn't funny, just because you guys don't get something first for once...

    I get the air that you guys halfheartedly mean it.

    For some instances, Australians are left in the dust for months after US releases etc.
