Now is the perfect time to buy a Nintendo 3DS
Tired of clashing clans and crushed candy? Wondering what your old pals Mario and Luigi are up to? Don't worry: They've been waiting for you, starring in killer game after killer game on platforms you've ignored since "growing up."
Stop holding out on that handheld game console purchase, friend. The time is now!
The 3DS is the perfect re-introduction to classic video games.
You grew up playing games and have since fallen off, right? Typical. That's okay — you're forgiven. And the 3DS is here to support your re-introduction to games. Maybe you just want to play old "Mega Man" games. You can totally do that. How about Mario's greatest hits? Also an option!
When you're ready to step up to the current versions of your favorite old games, they're ready and waiting. "Super Mario 3D Land" is one of the best Mario games ever made. Maybe you loved "The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past" on your Super Nintendo back in the early 90s? The spiritual successor, "A Link Between Worlds," is only on the 3DS.
The best version of the 3DS is the current model.
Thankfully, none of that matters because the latest version of the 3DS is the definitive iteration. It's calledthe "New" Nintendo 3DS, which just means it's a faster, larger, all around better version of the original. And given that it's been four years since the original model, we're calling it pretty unlikely that another, even better model ever comes out.
Your favorite retro games are on 3DS.
Maybe you're not ready to jump into current games. That's okay! The 3DS has a crucial digital store named "Virtual Console", which is filled with games of yore. It's where you'll find the original "Super Mario Bros.," a mess of "Mega Man" games, and cult classics like "Ninja Gaiden." Should you wish to use the 3DS solely as a means to re-live retro glory, that option is very much available to you.
It’s full of actual games, not time wasters.
They don't ask you to buy in-game "energy" to progress. They don't push you to watch adverts in exchange for "free" in-game money. They just aim to entertain. Why "distract" your brain when you could delight it instead?
The best games are inexpensive, one-time buys.
