GBA Ambassador Games Coming Out This Week in Japan and Europe
« on: December 14, 2011, 10:30:51 AM »

The remaining games include Minish Cap, Fire Emblem, F-Zero, and Wario Land 4. UPDATE: Confirmed for Europe.

http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/news/28668

The Game Boy Advance Ambassador games are coming out on December 16, according to a SpotPass message sent out to Japanese and European 3DS systems.

The message also confirmed the four other games that weren't confirmed previously. They are:

  • The Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap
  • F-Zero: Maximum Velocity
  • Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones
  • Wario Land 4
Those games will be available along with the six previously confirmed titles.
  • Kirby & The Amazing Mirror
  • Mario Kart: Super Circuit
  • Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3
  • Metroid Fusion
  • WarioWare, Inc: Mega Micro Game$
  • Mario vs. Donkey Kong
It is very likely that these games will also hit North America this week, but it has not been confirmed. We'll let you know as soon as it is.

Now that is a list to get excited about.

Early purchase justified (I paid $169.99 BTW)!!!

Yahoooo! I've never played Minish Cap so that is awesome. I guess I'll finally give Fire Emblem a chance as well. Haven't played F-Zero or Mario Circuit so those are the games I'm most interested in.

Have beaten Metroid, Kirby, and Warioware. Also, own Wario Land 4 and Mario vs. DK but have never finished them. I'll beat them on the orginal GBA cartidges first. Have Yoshi's Island for SNES but haven't played it in a long time and it will be nice to have it in a portable version.

What an amazing haul. I'm excited to play Yoshi's Island again and to try Kirby.

And I saved $80. Everything is coming up Milhouse.

I've got Minish and Kart, but my DS Lite is having issues and this'll be easier than dragging out my SP.  Haven't played the rest, but it looks like a pretty astonishing, dud-free lineup.  I wish I could play Zero Mission, but it'll probably be offered later.

For those who haven't played Minish, it's cool--especially if you like Liliputian worlds.

I paid full price in August as soon as they announced the Ambassador games. I have no regrets, especially as I have played a grand total of ZERO of these GBA games.

Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things;
Some shall be pardon'd, and some punished:
For never was a story of more woe
Than this of Sega and her Mashiro.

How did you miss out on such a stellar line up of games?  I could see not having all of them... but not having *any* of them? :(
Just some random guy on the internet who has a different opinion of games than you.

A little sad at the lack of Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga, but the list is nonetheless very nice. I really hope that, like the GB and GBC games, these will show a Gameboy Advance border when you load them in the true aspect ratio.
Here's hoping more GBA games are eventually added as paid downloads as well. Metroid Zero Mission is better than people give it credit for.

Great! The NES's list was somewhat disappointing as it included a mix of classics with games that there is no reason to play anymore. However, the GBA list is much stronger as there are much fewer weak titles.

I own most of these games already but it will be nice to have them on my 3DS, especially Wario Land 4. Enjoyed that game so much in the past and I have no idea where my copy is now.

Metroid Fusion is the only game that I actually own on the list, so I'll be getting lots of play time with these.  Minor disappointment that the rumored SMB3 didn't make the cut, but it's still a worthy list of games.  Far better than the NES games, that's for sure.

That's considerably more enticing than the NES Ambassador games, which ended up being so-so. Even though I own several of these already, my GBA cartridges are all over the place - this makes the whole thing much more convenient.

I've only played two of these titles to death and I'm seriously excited to get these games. I'm looking forward to Minish Cap the most and F Zero just might shave off my Mario Kart angst too. This is an awesome haul of games.

Well done Nintendo! I, too, have only played/owned 2 of those games on that list and am super excited to get the rest. For all the flak that the 3DS got this year for the lack of software (which I still think was blown waaay out of proportion), I have accumulated a significantly large backlog of games already between virtual console, eShop games, and retail (and I own and completed 11 retail games!).  I hope this system continues its course upwards.

I own Wario Ware, Mario Kart and Metroid, never played the rest of them. I did not like Mario Kart at all, the other two I love. I have been trying to score some of the other games (Zelda especially) on ebay, so this works out perfectly for me. I am another of the $169.99 club who got a steal.

I sort of wish it was Zero Mission instead of Fussion simply because I have Fusion and that would make the whole list games I never got around to.

Sweet, though I would like to have had Metroid Zero Mission on the list, even if Nintendo offers it for sale on a later date I would gladly buy it.

That is a surprisingly solid list of games there.  Off topic and I apologize in advance, but will I be able to transfer these games to a new 3DS?  I know that the new update now allows for game transfers, but I haven't been able to find a detailed list of everything that can be transferred over

I can't tell you how excited I am to play Fire Emblem again. I'll play Sacred Stones 100 times over. I love that game.

I believe Ambassador games are transferable as well through the update to a new system. I just heard that answered on the 8-4 Play podcast last night.

That list is baller! Can't believe they are giving up so many potential sales by offering such an awesome selection of games. There aren't a ton of GBA games missing here that I would want to buy on 3DS.
