The ten free Game Boy Advance games promised to early 3DS adopters are now available to download. For the uninformed, these are intended as a means to say sorry to those who splashed out full price for the handheld, only for it to fall in price a few months later.
Nintendo hasn’t scrimped on quality: all ten games on offer are pretty good, and a few of them â€“ like Metroid Fusion and Fire Emblem â€“ can sell for a handsome amount on eBay. In physical form, of course.
How to download? Enter the 3DS eShop, scroll to â€˜Settings/Other’ on the left, scroll down to â€˜Your Downloads’ and at the bottom of the list should be your GBA games along with the option to redownload. They’re then saved onto your SD card.
Also take a look at Pullblox (aka Pushmo) on the eShop while you’re on there â€“ our Twitter followers won’t stop tweeting about how brilliant it is.
