These come pre-loaded with Minecraft, Animal Crossing New Leaf: Welcome amiibo and Mario Kart 7 respectively. While the Animal Crossing console isn’t entirely fresh — it was announced for Europe a short time ago — the other two are brand new. Are you tempted to import the Minecraft of Mario Kart 7 minecraft skin dead space, or are you hopeful that we’ll see them in the west sometime soon? Let us know with a comment.
Damien has over a decade of professional writing experience under his belt, as well as a repulsively hairy belly. Rumours that he turned down a role in The Hobbit to work on Nintendo Life are, to the best of our knowledge, completely and utterly unfounded. Why are they giving up on the 3D aspect? That was the main selling point, wasn’t it? OMG that black and red MK7 2DS is absolutely gorgeous!
I would totally buy a 2nd console if that one came to NA. Bunkerneath I imagine it’s more cost effective to ship without the autostereoscopic screen, and a lot of recent 3DS games don’t use 3D anyway. Plus, these are aimed at younger kids and if you’re under 7 you’re not supposed to use the 3D effect. That Minecraft one looks pretty neat and I’m not really into Minecraft. I’m still considering importing a Japanese Dragon Quest-themed one but have resisted so far. Does anyone know if the new 2DS solves that issue of marking the screen?
Both my original 3DS and N3DS have vertical lines on the screen that are really annoying! I should have installed a screen protector but didn’t think I’d need one. Bunkerneath Seems crazy to me too, but guess they are going for a younger market for these. 3D effect is great on some games, I never get bored of it.
