You may or may not remember the Connection Ambassador program that Nintendo started three years ago.
For those catching up, it granted those who could get ten friends to connect their Wii to the internet the ability to download every NES game from the Virtual Console for the grand price of absolutely nothing.
Nintendo of Australia has recently announced that the Ambassador Program will officially come to a close on the 21st of November this year, ending just in time for the launch of the Wii U.
Those who have already reached the gold or platinum status and have not yet downloaded their titles will still be entitled to after the close of the program. It might be time to get those stubborn friends to get their Wii consoles connected to the internet!
We currently have no confirmation if this is happening in Europe, but with Australia and Europe almost being on par with everything these days, don't be surprised to hear something from Nintendo of Europe in the next couple of days.
