Nintendo, with this Ambassador tool you are really spoiling us!

Last week 3DS owners all across Europe were feverishly downloading free NES games, except those left out of the 3DS Ambassador programme, disappointed that they weren't eligible for the freebies. Wouldn't it have been useful to have some sort of eligibility verification tool to see who was in and who wasn't?

Now — one week after the first batch of games was released — Nintendo Europe has released its 3DS Ambassador tool. Simply enter your 3DS serial number — omitting the final digit in the box — and the website will magically tell you if you're eligible for free games.

If you're in, follow our detailed instructions to claim your freebies.
