3DS Ambassador GBA Games Delayed Until 2012?
« on: November 30, 2011, 06:26:32 PM »

Players hoping to play classic Game Boy Advance games on the 3DS might have to wait a little... UPDATE: or not.

http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/rumor/28566

The free Game Boy Advance games promised to early adopters of the 3DS (known as Ambassadors) may be delayed into 2012, according to information from conflicting Nintendo of Europe pages.

Different language versions of the 3DS Ambassadors page on the Nintendo of Europe site give conflicting details on the arrival of the games. The Spanish and German sites say that the games will not arrive until next year, while the English, French, Dutch, Italian, and Portuguese sites claim this year for delivery. The pages were all updated on October 14, so there is a good chance the later date is due to a translation mistake.

The Game Boy Advance games were promised to be released near the end of the year. The first batch of Ambassador games, the NES titles, have already been made available.

The following games have been confirmed to be part of the lineup:
- Mario Kart: Super Circuit
- Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3
- Metroid Fusion
- WarioWare, Inc: Mega Micro Game$
- Mario vs. Donkey Kong

The remaining five have not yet been announced.

Update: The Spanish and German pages have been updated to match the other language versions, confirming that the original translation was a mistake. Nintendo UK also reiterated that the titles will be arriving this year.

I have my kids around me right now, so I'm trying my darndest to hide my incredibly sense of disappointment.

Oh yeah, I know I have 2 sealed copies of that game.   1 is for trading.  But people who collect Amiibos?  They really have a problem!

It sounds like at most it might just be delayed in certain countries, if at all.

Jet Pilot, I may be wrong but I am pretty sure Nintendo said they would be adding stuff to the GBA games. So they are not just "ROM dumps".

I'm really looking forward to the GBA games, but wouldn't be that upset if they are delayed. As long as they arrive eventually and don't have any quality issues then waiting a few extra weeks - even months - isn't the end of the world.

It's not like we're hurting to find games to play on the 3DS right now, but it does kind of sting to learn we might have to wait a bit longer. It just feels like we've been lied to a little bit.

Conflicting information!
 
Maybe the games will be out in December, maybe not. Maybe they will be divided into multiple releases and we'll only start getting GBA games in December. Guess we'll have to wait to find out more. Ten GBA games sure would be a great Christmas present though.
 
Hopefully people don't get too upset or worried in the meantime.

Free?  I payed $88.02 at least for these games...  We are getting 20 games total so thats $4.41 per game.

According to Official Nintendo Magazine, the GBA games will still be coming by the end of the year (at least in Europe). Check the post here. I think this bodes well for the US... though the past year's events (Xenoblade and its ilk) might shake my confidence a bit until there's an official US confirmation. I'd settle for a bit more info on the remaining five mystery games... even a hint would be nice. :)

You might have. I didn't. I got the Ambassador Games and the price cut. Boom. Roasted.

By the way, we've been waiting from an official response from NoA. We'll post it when we get it.

I'm figuring NOA likes to F*** with us, so they will hold the U.S. release til Dec 2012, and point us to
all the great Wii titles coming out the 1st half of 2012..oh, wait..*scratches head*.
Yea, so NOA will give us  (in the U.S.) the GBA games, then 1 week later make them all
available to the general public. for buy 1 get one free. with improved functionality. and......

You have to consider it a marketing fail when your biggest fans are really cynical of one of your brands, in this case NoA.
