If you’ve owned your 3DS for a while, you’re probably aware of the 3DS Ambassador Program to reward the early adopters of their newest handheld. All you need to do is to find your 3DS’s serial number at the bottom of your system and enter it here to see if you made it. There will be some games that will be exclusive to the Ambassador Program and will not be released to newer owners
