GBA Games for the 3DS Ambassador Program Revealed

Previously announced:
Mario Kart: Super Circuit

Mario vs. Donkey Kong

Super Mario Advance 3: Yoshi's Island

Metroid Fusion

WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgames

Recently Announced:
Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones

F-Zero: Maximum Velocity

Kirby & The Amazing Mirror

Wario Land 4

Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap

There's definitely some missed opportunity here with the games. Like, I would've loved to see Golden Sun 1&2, Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga, Mother 3, Rhythm Tengoku, Drill Dozer, Wario Ware: Twisted! or maybe Advance Wars. Overall, I think this is a decent selection of games that represents Nintendo's most important franchises on the Gameboy Advance with an acceptable variety in gameplay. Not all of them are great. Mario Kart: Super Circuit specifically speaking. That was announced when they first started talking about the Ambassador program so what can you do? Even though Mario Kart is one of their money makers, I just don't see anyone playing Super Circuit over 7 and I feel like it's a wasted spot out of 10. The choice in Fire Emblem is a little peculiar because most people I know prefer the first one that hit North American shores, Fire Emblem 7. The characters in FE8 may be less appealing but I liked the way the game played with new classes and paths to obtain those classes. If it came down to me, I would probably bump off F-Zero for one of the other games that I listed. I know... It's F-Zero, but like Super Circuit, it's not that great of a game. As for the rest of the games, I would highly recommend them to anybody who would want to play the best in the Gameboy Advance's library.

No word of exactly when will we get these just yet.
