Nintendo Unveils The Full List Of Free NES Shit That Early 3DS Adopters Can Expect To Receive

leave a comment »

After deciding that their 3DS handheld wasn’t quite summoning the huge pots of golds that they had foreseen, Nintendo recently announced their intention to brutally slash the price of their less than six-month old machine.

The end result; new 3DS buyers could take advantage of the greedy supermarkets trying to 1-UP each other (yeah, I went there) and snag one of Ninty’s handheld eye-bleeders for around £115 or less, representing a saving in the ballpark of roughly half the original March launch RRP.

What about the early adopters though? Those loyal Nintendo zealots who, prior to the spectacular E3 2010 unveiling of the handheld, went down to Primark and snagged as many cheap pairs of spare underwear as they could in hopes of staving off the inevitable pant-apocalypse of excitable urine destruction at the unveiling of some new Ninty hardware; what about them?

Well, they got some recompense in the form of twenty free games.

That’s right, TWENTY FREE games.

Of that number, ten would be NES titles with the remaining ten being GBA titles.

A noble gesture I reckon, yet, a most needed one otherwise those folks who bought the machine at £170-£190 odd quid, would be spitting more fire than Mario after doing a line of Phall-infused fire-flower powder.

This morning though, we actually have the names of the NES games that will become available on September 1st and it isn’t too shabby at all:

Super Mario Bros.
Donkey Kong Jr.
Balloon Fight
Ice Climber
The Legend of Zelda
Wrecking Crew
Mario Open Golf
Mario & Yoshi
Metroid
Zelda: Adventures of Link

The GBA games will become available towards ‘the end of the year’, and to be eligible to access all this free retro downloadable goodness, you must register your 3DS on the Nintendo eShop by simply accessing it before September 1st. If you haven’t done this, then you need to go onto Ninty’s official site and physically send them your proof of purchase so that they can verify you were one of the poor mugs who paid close to full price for the machine.

Finally, if you can’t be arsed to do any of the above and you were an early adopter; you are a chump and I have no sympathy for you.
