With the news of Wii U getting a price cut, Some early Wii U  owners were hoping (some even expecting) that Nintendo will also be doing an Ambassador Program like they had for the 3DS. Someone sent an email to Nintendo Support and got the following response

 

Hello,

Thank you for taking the time to write with your questions regarding a Wii U Ambassador program. The Ambassador program is only available to any Nintendo 3DS owner who purchased their system before August 12, 2011 and there are no plans for a similar program for Wii U.

I know that this isn’t what you were hoping for, but we appreciate your support of our products now and in the future. I also want to assure you that your comments will be added to our records and made available for other departments at the company to use as they see fit.

Sincerely,
Nintendo of America Inc.
Helena Toledo

 

And to confirm further, Kotaku was able to have an interview where Reggie states basically the same idea.

Reggie Fils-Aime: So, we have nothing to announce in terms of an Ambassador Program. And what I would do is reinforce what you just said. The situations are very different not only in terms of the timing, not only in terms of the level of the reduction… it’s a very different situation.

 

I honestly did not expect them to do this again seeing as the price drop isn’t as drastic like it was with the 3DS and as well as the time span was a bit longer as well. I feel that every time from now on when Nintendo cuts price people are going to pester them about doing an Ambassador Program.
