    Nintendo has released more information about the 3DS Ambassador Program. As per usual, if you have connected your 3DS to the eShop or performed an update before August 12th, you are eligible for the ambassador program. This means that, even if you never used the eShop, so long as you updated your 3DS at all, you're good to go. That's nice of Nintendo.

    Also, during the week of August 15th, Nintendo will release a website to allow people to use their 3DS serial code to check if they are an ambassador or not. 3DS owners will receive a link through SpotPass when the website is live.

    And, as usual, the NES games will be out by Sep. 1, and the GBA games should be out before the end of this year.

    Source: Nintendo eShop News. (Go to the eShop, scroll left, and tap "News")

    EDIT: According to Nintendo of Europe, if you have a reciept that can prove that you have bought your 3DS before August 12th, there is a possibility that you can still be in. Thanks nasune!

    As of yet, no. Any lists claiming to have the full release lists are still unconfirmed rumors that should not be taken seriously.

    Honestly, who would believe some random blog?

    I think Nintendo is trying to secure some third party titles. If you notice, all of the titles are first party so far, and people only want to play so much Mario.

    Actually, the dutch nintendo website states that you can still be in the program even if you did not update. All that's necessary is some kind of proof that you bought the thing before the 12th.

    I guess that the serial code checking website and the fact that updating puts you in the Ambassador Program is news... right?

    LOL ya, thats why I exactly asked for the "official" list [​IMG]!

    But anyway, thats a pretty good move by nintendo. A lot of people probably have updated their systems but never connected to eshop.

    Well they give two ways: a receipt, or a friend code (they say the 3ds had to have been online with it too) which predates august 12.

    edit: here's the page, and this is the relevant part:
    Excuse my butchering of the english language, but I'm very tired.

    You probably read about it in your 3DS. The news was out from... Thursday?

    I'm just surprised that no one else reported back here.

    Cool! This will probably make a lot of people more assured.

    And, I read a rumor that some/all GBA games will be downloadable on December 4th. I forgot the source though, sorry...

    Possibly. Frankly all of the news that they release all sound the same, so maybe im just mistaking it.

    Nice to see that Nintendo is allowing us to check if we're an ambassador, though.

    Well, the wording from the news was kind of vague. It said "during the week of August 15th". That can either mean tomorrow... Or anytime next week.

    Let's hope it's tomorrow!
