Minish Cap and a Pokemon title would be nice. It would make the Ambassador title mean something.

So far in the news posts I've only listed the games I'd like to see....these are the games I think will be added to the line-up realistically:

NES ::
Kid Icarus
Donkey Kong
Dr. Mario
Duck Hunt
Punchout

GBA ::
Wario Land 4
Donkey Kong Country (1,2 or 3)
Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap
Kirby & The Amazing Mirror
One more of the Super Mario Advance games to fill the last slot (take your pick) (personally I hope it's not the first one, since It's the only one of the super advance ones that I've played before)

I'd love to think we'll see some games like Pokemon (Emerald :3), Mario & Luigi, Golden Sun, Advance Wars or Fire Emblem but I'm not really sure. They don't seem like games that Nintendo would give away. (although granted, until recently no game seemed like one nintendo would give away) I have a feeling they'll probably go for more side scrolling platform type games or puzzle games.. I guess it's my pessimism creeping in.

If there does happen to be a pokemon game I can see it easily being Emerald....would they really go to the trouble of setting up a system inside this ambassador system just for pokemon games that you can pick between? (Ruby OR Sapphire, Fire Red OR Leaf Green) I doubt they'd give one and not the other too...that would be a bit strange. Emerald is the perfect alternative since it's the most stand alone of the five pokemon games.

I think it's definitely true that the GBA games announced far outshine the NES ones. I can't see myself spending that much time playing Donkey Kong Jr, Ice Climbers or Balloon Fight. I'll still welcome them on to my 3DS though.

I forget how complete it is, but we do get Dr. Mario in WarioWare Inc, so I think giving us Dr. Mario for NES would be a bit lame. Come to think of it, buying those Paper Plane or Pyoro DSiWare games is also similarly worthless now.

I bought the paper plane game. I feel duped now.

I finally have a Wii U now! And Splatoon and Smash Bros U!

Well, at least you get to experience the joy of Paper Plane before we get that WarioWare game. Maybe the DSiWare version is actually better in some way. You can also transfer that game to another system, unlike the WarioWare game.

Edit: Just checked out that Dr. Wario game, and you only get one sound track, but all the levels and speeds seem to be there, even past 20. Man, I forgot how many awesome little games they gave us in WarioWare — won't mind getting these all over again on my 3DS. SkatingBoard, yay!

They're not giving us Pokemon. I don't remember where, but I do remember Nintendo saying Pokemon isn't worth making/playing without the ability to trade/battle. Just like they wouldn't create a system inside the ambassador system where you can choose a version, they wouldn't program in the ability to trade Pokemon from a downloaded game to another downloaded game or onto a physical Pokemon game... that would be hell to try to work out. Don't forget this is a FREE game. Nintendo's also repeatedly said they don't want to mess with Virtual Console games.

We also won't get Duck Hunt. They, again, don't want to mess with Virtual Console games. As such, while a Wii version/sequel COULD work, Duck Hunt will never be released under the Virtual Console banner, because it requires support of a NES Zapper. No Zapper, no duck shooting. Besides, we all know there's a BIG difference between aiming and shooting something to tapping it on the screen. That would be the single most boring game download of my life. You'd never miss. It might make a good time waster... but after a half hour of playing, you'd wonder why you bothered.

Didn't they also say somewhere that they would be adding 3D and multiplayer functionality to virtual console games later and that when these updates came out, ambassadors would be able to update them for no extra cost.

If they're excluding games that have multiplayer functionality then that might be awkward. I think Golden Sun had multiplayer functionality too.

If they're adding 3D, the games change from being Virtual Console games to 3D Classics (i.e. 3DSWare) games. And multiplayer might be a non-issue for some games. Super Mario Bros. had 2 player support, but it was one-at-a-time. You could choose 2P mode, and pass the 3DS to replicate that.

Its still a perfectly playable game without multiplayer. Pokemon is not.

Edgey, Gumshoe, Godot, Sissel, Larry, then Mia, Franziska, Maggie, Kay and Lynne.

I'm throwing my money at the screen but nothing happens!

They've pretty much got most of the games I want down pat.

I dunno...A Sonic Advance would be nice? If not highly unlikey...

I'm working on a game that's coming out soon!

Yeah, it kinda is. Why would Nintendo pay to give that away?

Exactly. Like I said, they've pretty much got everything I want covered in the short list of 5 games (I never really had many memorable GBA games). So anything they throw in will just be an added bonus for me!

...Wait a minute...the NES demos...Yoshi's Island...you know, the ones from E3. You think...these could be those games in 3D?
(I doubt it, but I just thought of that)

Would love to see Yoshi's Island in 3D. T_T

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Yuuki, and for some odd reason, Megumi (School Rumble)
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Amber and Xiao Pai from Rune Factory 4.
More Updates: I HAZ TWITTER!!!

That's debatable, I survived perfectly fine in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd generations not playing any multiplayer.

I'd actually say that a game like Mario Kart: Super Circuit would be worse off without multiplayer than pokemon because it's such a party/group orientated game. Whereas Pokemon has a more robust single player adventure and multiplayer is generally only focussed on two people rather than (preferably) a group like Mario Kart. You might not be able to get every pokemon, but that was the case when Ruby/Sapphire first came out anyway. (Plus if they're adding multiplayer later as a free update that would solve the problem....it's not like when they release these free games they don't plan on updating them somewhere down the line. Nintendo have mentioned that that that ambassadors will be able to update their games later at no extra cost.
