Nintendo Downloads Weekly Update
This week’s Nintendo Downloads is even less impressive than usual, but at least there’s a good reason for it this time. The 3DS Ambassador Program’s first batch of free downloadable games, which features 10 NES classics, is now live. So I figure Nintendo didn’t have much time to prepare other stuff as well.

Anyways, if you’re not a 3DS Ambassador, then there are four new games to peruse – one 3DS Virtual Console classic, one WiiWare game and two DSiWare games.

Gamertell’s Nintendo Download picks for the week are the 10 free NES 3DS Ambassador games.
