    According to GoNintendo a number of Nintendo 3DS users have already been sent a notification message via SpotPass to tell them that their Gameboy Advance game will be available to download shortly. Basically keep an eye out for a SpotPass notification which is currently being rolled out to all users that are eligible for the Ambassador Program.

    Apparently the message says that details will be sent out in another SpotPass message.

    So a notification of a notification...

    Nothing like that, but knowing Nintendo, Europe isn't going to get any notification until the last minute.
    We've been left in the dark whilst America gets priority.
    You know that Cave story 3DS is out, and we STILL don't have the DSiWare version?!

    You do realize there is Cave Story 3DS just released and a DSiWare version for DSi? Not the same game at all.

    I was talking talking to the guy who says nintendo doesn't do digital distributions. Yes they don't, but the 3DS version and DSiWare aren't the same, so yes they do release it in the shop for the dsiware version.


    Also, which gba games were confirmed so far? I haven't kept tab, but I hear five were confirmed, but dunno which one. The other will probably be like the nes games and we will know when we download.

    Not Nintendo's problem, blame Niclas (sp?) since they developed it. If they don't want to translate it for all the various regions and Europe and the rest of the world, why should they? Not like it's been a hugely successful game really.

    Whether or not content makes it to a region or not depends on the Nintendo of that region. So if you're complaining about how Nintendo of Europe still haven't brought Cave Story to Europe's DSi shop, then maybe they're just not interested in it. Even if the developer wanted to make one for Europe, it won't get published unless NoE gives a go. And apparently, they don't give a go-shit.

    But yay for GBA notifications inside a notification! So... Nintendo's starting to do nested notifications, huh... nasty tricks. this could mess the time-space continuum or something. could be the flux capacitors in action.

    Nothing here, still hoping the games DO release this week. Would be nice to have them on a 14 hour road trip :P

    My bro is playing 3D Land and we didn't receive any notification.

    But I really hope those games will come soon. I'm going aboard in about a week and Mario 3D Land isn't enough for the travelling needs.
