1UP has issued a timely PSA on how to play Virtual Console games on the 3DS at their original resolution, rather than smeared across the larger screen. It’s pretty easy – after launching the game from the channels menu, just hold down start or select until the black boot-up screen appears. Last week, Nintendo finally handed over the ten Game Boy Advance titles it had promised early adopters as compensation for the August price-cut.

Nintendo has confirmed that its Ambassador games are still coming this year to early adopters of 3DS.
