Two more 3DS Ambassador games revealed

Two more games in the 3DS Ambassador program have been reportedly revealed, from a Nintendo of America customer service representative. NWR reports that they include the GBA titles Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros 3 and Kirby & the Amazing Mirror. Like the rest of the GBA games, these would presumably be exclusive to Ambassador members, as Nintendo has stated it doesn't intend to release that set to the general public.
The games are believable choices, since they're first-party titles like the rest. They would join Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3, Mario Kart: Super Circuit, Metroid Fusion, WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$, and Mario vs. Donkey Kong, leaving three GBA spots still open. These games will hit by the end of 2011.
Ambassadors will also get the NES games Super Mario Bros., Donkey Kong Jr., Balloon Fight, Ice Climber, and The Legend of Zelda, along with five other NES games, on September 1. To qualify, you'll need to connect your 3DS to the Nintendo eShop by midnight on August 11, after which the 3DS drops its price by a whopping 80 bucks.
Nintendo has made no bones about its intentions with the Ambassador program, making a fairly generous freebie offer to soothe buyers who might feel burned by having paid a higher price tag. If you haven't bought a 3DS yet but still want in on the Ambassador program, you can pick one up and login to the eShop anytime before August 12. Some stores have even shaved a bit off the price, so you can get a slight discount to boot.
Shacknews has contacted Nintendo of America to confirm these two new game additions but has yet to hear back at the time of publishing.
