New 3DS Trailers Now Available for Download

The trailers that are downloadable on the Nintendo 3DS are not your ordinary trailers. For other systems, YouTubing gameplay footage or trailers would be enough, but 3DS has something special to offer — 3D. You just can’t capture how the game will actually look on the 3DS because, let’s face it, our monitors are probably not 3D capable and we certainly aren’t streaming in 3D either.

So six free new trailers have arrived in the 3DS eShop for the following games:

  • Super Mario 3D Land
  • Animal Crossing
  • Mario Kart 7
  • Paper Mario
  • Luigi’s Mansion 2
  • Mario Tennis

These videos were all seen at Tokyo Game Show this year, but an interesting addition has been thrown into these trailers as opposed to previous downloadable trailers. Before actually watching these videos in all of its 3D glory, a sort of game save is created and this takes about five seconds. Then finally the video plays and ends with a prompt to choose to receive notifications for the game you just watched a video of. If you choose to get them, expect notifications galore before these games release for retail. Happy downloading!
