Just in case you weren't sure about getting a particular launch theme in the recent update:


Music from themes:

For the second video, go to these times to hear the corresponding music:

0:01 - Ground Theme from Super Mario Bros. (NES Jumping Mario Theme)
1:28 - Elegance (Hanafuda Theme)
4:11 - Secret Course from Super Mario Sunshine (Stamped Felt and Branded Wood Themes)
6:55 - Chill Time (Chess Board, Stripes and Polka Dots Black & White Themes)
9:54 - Hyrule Main Theme (The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds Theme)
13:00 - Summer Time (Polka Dots Gold & White Theme)
16:04 - Toad House from Super Mario 3D Land (Mighty Mushrooms Theme)
17:58 - Happy Time (Stars Black & Gold Theme)
21:48 - Rainbow Run from Super Mario 3D World (Completely Mario, Luigi, Yoshi and Peach Themes)

EDIT: We now get a pink dot notification whenever new Themes come out.

EDIT 2: We can now gift eShop games to others! (Please keep in mind you need a credit/debit card to be able to do so, though.)
I personally say, don't get the 3DS, get the 2DS! The 2DS is cheaper because it does have 3D (which I never use because it is very difficult to use), and it is a tonne more durable because it doesn't have hinges! I have a 3DS but I am very favorable over the 2DS.

I have no idea if the topic about refurbished (officially from Nintendo) units has been tackled on this topic but i'll throw this in eitherways.
They're always at an all-time low price and there's tons of positive testimonials about how the refurbished ones are almost identical to a brand new unit with almost no visible flaws (very minor scratches and dents).

You can only order those in the US and Canada though, i have no idea why but i'll just toss this in:
Nintedo 2DS - 80$
Nintedo 3DS - 95$
Nintedo 3DS XL - 135$
Wii U Deluxe with Nintendo Land Bundle - 200$

Sometimes they even have special edition units in their storehouse, they cost as little as 5-15 bucks more.

Also, since i've been absent for such a long time i don't know if this again, has been tackled in either of the topics surrounding Nintendo:
Here's some good news for all Europeans

Nintendo of Europe has a promotion going if you're registering a 3DS or 2DS handheld with Super Smash Brothers 3DS or Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire you can get those games as a free download:

  • Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
    The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
    Yoshi's New Island
    Kirby: Triple Deluxe
    Mario Golf: World Tour
    Mario Party: Island Tour
    Pokémon Art Academy

It's eligable until the 12th of January 2015.
Also this promotion is running in those countries:
United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, Austria, France, Spain, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands, Portugal, Switzerland, South Africa, or Russia.

Live in those parts of the world and wanna grab a free (good) game?
Tell your friends!
Trash Boat
The Legend Of Zelda: Majora's Mask will be released on 3DS(I'm surprised that nobody announced it before)
Don't really care for it. The Wii U side of today's Nintendo Direct interested me way more.

Full recap:

I wanna buy a 3DS but I feel like this is the worst time to get one since the new model will be available soon
Also I'm not a fan of Nintendo's region lock policy they've been using over the past years which is why I never really got in touch with their products
Thought so.
im buying a 3ds for x-mas cant wait!!!
There's a free sonic boom theme in the theme shop now...
I bought my 3ds for Fire Emblem Awakening, and plan on buying the new model later on for Xenoblade remake~ But i really enjoy using mine~

Just checked on my 3DS if that was true.
Apparently Nintendo of Europe (or exclusively Germany, dunno) doesn't have that theme in stock yet or they took it down a few minutes later like every other theme that they want to put up for sale later on (maybe testing if the item is listed at the theme shop)
Usually they put the themes up for 0.00$ everytime they want to release that theme in the shop but you can't actually purchase/download them as Nintendo still hasn't set a price for them yet.

If they were free however, it would be a funny promotional thing from Sega to push sales.
Well considering they permanently lowered the price for both versions of Sonic Lost World to $30, I wouldn't be surprised if the free theme really was part of a promo.

EDIT: Just in case you ever get bored browsing on your new3DS/new3DS XL:

EDIT 2: Collectible Badge Center is out for Japan (and it'll probably come out overseas later):

To anyone who plans on getting a new3DS/new3DS XL, they no longer have them at GameStop (probably for now).
Ahhh, random bump!
Someone should play Mario kart 7 with me B)
I'd like to get this running again!
My friend code is 1161 - 0472 - 9819 :oops:
I play MK8 way more, though =c
It's not for 3DS doe... It isn't right? I swear when I looked it up it wasn't.
I know. I'm just saying.

Meanwhile, I'm playing all these other 3DS games that don't have online multiplayer, orz
I don't have a Wii U :C
