Balloon Fight was rereleased for the 3DS Virtual Console for all regions on August 31, 2011. "Virtual Console" is essentially the official service for emulation on newer Nintendo systems, and the systems emulated include the NES, Gameboy, and Gameboy Color are included in the 3DS Virtual Console service. In all of these games, you can use Restore Points, which allow you to quickly save everything in the game at that moment, and you can later go back to Restore Points, essentially allowing you to "Bookmark" a moment in your game. However, using a Restore Point will overwrite your current game, and you can only save one Restore Point at a time. Some games, such as Balloon Fight, allow you to play using download play. Balloon Fight is also one of the select games included as free titles available through the ambassador program. This program allowed early adopters of the 3DS (When the system was at a higher price) to receive a number of free virtual console games. These "ambassadors" would get a certificate application, which was simply a video with an option to allow the games to be downloaded. This game can still be purchased on the Nintendo 3DS eShop for 4.99$ USD or 514 Yen, depending on your region.
