Last Day to Register for Free 3DS Games

Just a friendly reminder that today is the last day you can register for Nintendo's Ambassador Program. You know, the program for 3DS early adaptors who paid through the nose for the 3DS, so now are getting twenty free games.

In Japan, the registration program involves you entering your serial number in a website, but in North America, all you need to do is either perform a system update or visit the 3DS eShop.

From Nintendo.com: "Nintendo 3DS owners who have performed the latest system update or who visit the Nintendo eShop using a wireless broadband Internet connection prior to 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on Aug. 11, 2011, are automatically registered for the program and will receive 20 free downloadable games before the end of the year."

Easy enough! So those who bought a 3DS before it got on sale and who haven't registered yet, get to it.
