    Long story short, I was getting some error code in the E-Shop which ended up with me having to switch my region to Canada and back to finally get in.

    Then I noticed on my downloads list all my Ambassador titles are showing as "Currently Unavailable". This a known issue or anything? Or are some shenanigans occuring

    Try to turn your region back to USA, and look again. I'm not sure if the ambassador program was available for other countries, but if I remember weel, it was a program released worldwide, so if the problem persist, try to send an e-mail to Nintendo explaining your problem, maybe it's something to do with your eShop account.

    Yeah I switched back to the U.S. I even called Nintendo, only solution he could give me was just to try deleting a game and download again to see if that would make the download button appear.

    Though, I really dont want to try that one for obvious reasons....so I'll just give it a few days and see if it changes.

    If Nintendo gave you bad advice and it cost you something there could be a free 3DS in it for you. Just saaayiiing

    I meant Mario Kart Super Circuit from the GBA lol. I'd never buy a full priced game from the E-Shop....but the guy was right, it made the download button re-appear
