UPDATE: Nintendo UK has told Eurogamer the GBA Ambassador games will launch this year. More details will be revealed very soon.

ORIGINAL STORY: The ten free GameBoy Advance games promised to 3DS early adopters have been delayed until 2012, an official Nintendo website says.

The games, part of Nintendo's Ambassador Programme, will be available "from next year", according to the Nintendo Spain website.

The 3DS Ambassador scheme rewards early adopters who bought the 3DS before Nintendo's massive price-drop. Nintendo has already spoiled members with 10 free NES games - including Super Mario Bros. and the original Legend of Zelda.

10 free Game Boy Advance games, including Metroid Fusion, Super Mario Advance 3, Mario Kart Advance, Wario Ware and Mario vs. Donkey Kong, were promised to arrive by the end of the year.

Eurogamer has asked Nintendo UK for comment.
