So we're getting those 10 free GBA games through the amassador program such as Mario Kart and other games that have multiplayer features, will we be able to somehow play with others?

The later updated versions will have multiplayer, not sure if it is local or online. I hope it's online multiplayer.

Features of the Virtual Console NES titles (priority delivery version):

  • An electronic manual explaining game controls will be included.
  • The official version* (which will be delivered at a later date) will include a full electronic manual.
  • Alternating multiplayer modes are supported in some titles, but versus play modes are not.
  • The official version* (which will be delivered at a later date) will also support versus play.
  • Does not include the "Restore Points" function (which allows you to copy and save everything in the game whenever you want) usually included in the Virtual Console Game Boy and Game Boy Color games.
  • However, it will include the "VC Suspend" function (which allows you to save the game when you suspend play by pressing the HOME Button). The official version* (which will be delivered at a later date) will support the Restore Points function.
    You will be able to "Transfer to another Nintendo 3DS" with the "System Transfer" function that will be provided in future system updates.
  • *Official versions of the games will be launched later for a fee, but Nintendo 3DS Ambassadors will be able to upgrade from the priority delivery version to the official version free of charge.

Features of the Virtual Console Game Boy Advance titles:

  • Manuals will be available.
  • Wireless functions and peripheral devices are not supported.
  • When you press the HOME Button, a simple menu is displayed, and you won't be able to return directly to the HOME Menu.
  • Neither the "Restore Points" function nor the "VC Suspend" functions are supported.
  • If you're playing a game that includes a save function, you can select Save, and your data will be saved when you've finished playing the Game Boy Advance game. /*this and upper one suggest that playing GBA games will suck as hell*/
  • During gameplay, the Nintendo 3DS system will not enter Sleep Mode even if you close it.
  • SpotPass and StreetPass will not function during gameplay.
  • You will be able to "Transfer to another Nintendo 3DS" with the "System Transfer" function that will be provided in future system updates.
  • *Nintendo currently has no plans to make these 10 games available to the general public on Nintendo 3DS in the future.

Rest of the info on Ambassador Program is availible on the official site.
