North America Ambassador Games


After weeks of speculation, Nintendo of America has unveiled their list of downloadable games for their Ambassador program starting Sept. first. Looking at the list of games, it looks like Nintendo is trying to bank on the nostalgia factor early on for the Ambassadors. Either that or they want to give their new batch of fans a chance to play these great games that some of us grew up on. The games are-

  • Super Mario Bros.
  • Donkey Kong Jr.
  • Balloon Fight
  • Ice Climber
  • The Legend of Zelda
  • Metroid
  • NES Open Tournament Golf
  • Wrecking Crew
  • Zelda II – The Adventure of Link
  • Yoshi

This  could be a NES best seller list. All these games are great and a fun time for every Nintendo fan. I can remember player Yoshi with my brother and let me just say, if you have played a game of Yoshi, you know how intense those matches can get. If you’re getting that deja vu feeling about this list, it isn’t you. This is the same list for the Ambassador program in Japan. At first glance, one could say that Nintendo has done a good job except for a few slip ups. I could have done without Ice Climber if that meant Kirby’s Adventure and the same could be said for Balloon Fight if that meant Kid Icarus or Mario 3 made the list. Also, a golf game, really? I know it has ties to the hay-day of the NES, but if that was the case, You could argue for Tecmo Bowl  or Ice Hockey. Anyway, 3DS owners will have to wait until the start of the Ambassador program so heed these words: “It’s dangerous to go alone! Take this!” “Thank you Mario, but our princess is in another castle” and “I am Error.” Remember these vital phrases and Ambassadors everywhere will be proud.

What games did Nintendo leave out that makes you think “how the hell is that game not on the list?” Post your comments!
