Were you one of the early adopters that bought the Nintendo 3DS for $249.99? Following the upcoming price drop of the system to $169.99, Nintendo is hoping to make it up to you by offering 20 classic NES and GBA downloadable titles for free. Click this story to see what you can expect to get for free starting September 1.

Two groups of titles will be made available to 3DS Ambassadors for no cost. One is a collection of 10 NES games that will eventually be made available to all 3DS customers for purchase.
