Here's how one can access the New 3DS Ambassador Edition:

Nintendo has declined to clarify how it selected Club Nintendo members for this promotion, providing the following statement to Eurogamer.

The New Nintendo 3DS Ambassador offer is by email invitation only for selected Club Nintendo members in Europe only who fulfil a certain criteria.

We are unable to disclose such business information, however we would like to reassure you that we are continually looking at different promotional offerings we can bring to consumers at various times throughout the year.

The terms and conditions for such promotional activities are individual to each promotion,but we will endeavour to bring you more promotional activities in the future, which we hope you will be able to take advantage of.

Well, let's just say if you got the email then that's about how.

So depending on how limited this is, you probably want to take this offer because those plates will probably become a big collector's item. Got it.

If the price was £149.99 I'd go for it. I'm not a big 3DS fan so I'm skipping it even though I'm one of the selected who's able to purchase if I wanted.

Damn I'd want one, but an XL model :(

So this sucks in many ways for me.
1: Not selected to buy one
2: Maybe not even able to be selected since this probably is for UK only (as well as Sweden isn't part of Nintendo of Europe)
3: I want an XL model

hah :P First world problems

It'll almost certainly release at the same time as the standard retail models, so the only thing you're missing out on is the faceplates.

And I suppose it's a given that these will release with FW 9.3 or higher.

It's not UK only. The promo is live here in Russia as well (quite surprisingly, considering the very low popularity of Nintendo over here), and I even got the invitation. Not really sure if I should bite though, as I now have a Zelda Limited Edition 3DS XL I'm fairly happy with. For me the question is if there are going to be exclusive titles like that Xenoblade port.

Emm, in my invitation it's stated clearly Ambassadors will have a chance to buy it earlier than everybody else.

Wow, It's actually cheaper in Russia. With all those recent exchange rate shocks, 1 GBP is 93,35 RUR as of today, so math says it should cost 17 163 RUR, while the price in my invitation is 14 199 RUR.

Here in Portugal people started receiving emails this morning. The price is 200 euros. 170 for the console and 10 for each of the extras.
