All of you who weren't lucky enough to snag a Nintendo 3DS early enough to take advantage of the Ambassador program, rejoice! You will soon get your NES Virtual Console satisfaction. The original Legend of Zelda is now available to purchase on the Japanese 3DS eShop for a price of ¥500.
It means that, following a roll-out to European users, Nintendo is on track to allow those who had a 3DS bought for them for Christmas to access some classic NES games. 3DS Ambassadors received Legend of Zelda for free as part of their complimentary 10-game NES package.
It's likely that Nintendo will release all of the Ambassador games first before moving on to additional NES titles. There are no plans to roll out the Game Boy Advance games for general release, however - Nintendo previously announced that the ten free GBA titles for Ambassadors would remain exclusive to early console buyers.
