Nintendo 3DS - Try before you Buy

Nintendo 3DS games free demos, try before you buy, free downloadable games

Lately Clay has been reluctant to go to school. After checking with the teachers, it came down to an awfully long January and quite a few reception children are getting fed up. January Blues has certainly spread wide this year (never noticed this in the past few years). We still have 2 more weeks until the half term holiday, and it'll be another 5 weeks before Easter bank holiday is here, so we will have to make this 1 week break holiday count.

The kids have been deprived of video games at the moment, and are already thinking of what to play during the holiday, but our game choices are still quite limited because they, especially Clay, have a short attention span! The good news is that I don't have to break the bank further (it's pretty broken after Christmas) to introduce them to more new games. Nintendo has over 100 3DS games you can try for free, and if you fancy buying the full game, at least you know it's the game that you want to put your money on.

All you need is a Nintendo 3DS family system (Nintendo 2DS, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL, new Nintendo 3DS or new Nintendo 3DS XL) to play on and a Wireless Internet connection to download the games from Nintendo's eShop app from the system.

Some of these games are demos, others are free to start games that includes optional in-game purchases, but the point is that you can try these games before you spend a penny on them, and for kids with short attention span, this is perfect for us.

Demos choices include Super Smash Bros for Nintendo 3DS, Pokemon Omega Ruby, Tomodachi Life and Nintendo Dogs and Cats.

Free-to-Start games include Pokemon Rumble World, IRONFALL Invasion and Steel Diver: Sub Wars.

I highly recommend trying the demo out for new Style Boutique 2, and I'd probably give the free-to-start game Fullbox a try myself too. What about you? What game will you play next?
