    Available in Japan this Friday, other regions to be confirmed.
    At long last! Nintendo Japan has let Japanese 3DS owners the final list of Game Boy Advance Ambassador Games that they can expect. Originally Nintendo released the names of five titles, now here’s the complete list of ten (* denotes new title announced);
    • F-Zero: Maximum Velocity *
    • Super Mario Advance 3: Yoshi’s Island
    • Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap *
    • Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones *
    • Kirby & The Amazing Mirror
    • Mario Kart: Super Circuit
    • Mario vs. Donkey Kong *
    • Metroid Fusion
    • Wario Land 4 *
    • WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgames
    The games will be released on the eShop this Friday, December 16th in Japan. Nintendo Japan pushed this information to 3DS’s via the Ambassador Certificate so everyone make sure you have your 3DS on standby in case word comes through! The list of games may vary from region to region but we wouldn’t expect it to be much different here in Australia.

    Minish Cap and Sacred Stones would have been nice to have without being an ambassador. Oh well looks like I'll just dump my carts and play it on a PC emu/DSTwo.. Good thing I saved my DSL when buying the DSiXL/3DS :I

    Err, asterix is wrong, Mario Vs. DK was already announced. That asterix should go on the Kirby game.


    But Minish Cap........

    YESS THANK YOU NINTENDO!!!!

    fuck'n A fire emblem alright only played the first one on gba and the first ds version haven't played this one yet so I'm most excited to play that.
    I'm surprised that the gba version of mario 3 isn't on here, I for sure thought it was after it was teased on one of nintendo's twiter [though it was a pic of the nes version so who knows maybe it was more of a hint to mairo 3d and the tanooki suit]
    besides that though uber excited to play these games

    Possibly.
    I can't remember if the NES batch was worldwide simultaneous or not. Does anybody know?

    OK, I'm little disappointed by one thing, Mario Kart: Super Circuit.

    Already got Mario Kart 7,but not a big deal.

    if I remember correctly the servers where very iffy [some like me got the games a day early] so their probably just going region by region to reduce stress on the eshop servers, I suspect the rest of Asia will get the games soon after japan, then NA, then europe and Australia.
    oh and yes it was close to simultaneous [I think it went by time, so it wasn't exactly simultaneous]

    I don't see Earthbound 2. :(

    In addition, why do I see Mario Kart on that list? The tracks were awkward and the music was screwed up so bad that even Scrillex sounds good.

    earthbound 2 or mother 3 is only in Japanese and nintendo only wanted games that where released in all regions, the English version was a translated hack [but I'm hoping you already know that]

    Ugh, I already have 3 of the 5 new GBA games: Wario, Kirby and Zelda. Although I have no idea where my Minish Cap cartridge is...

    Hopefully they'll give us the North American version of Zelda in Europe, the European version has some bugs and some erroneously translated text.
