We’ve been owners and fans of the Nintendo 3DS since it came out in March. As early adopters who have never once regretted our decision to buy a 3DS, we decided to create a quick Nintendo 3DS Starter’s Guide to highlight some of the great features on the system and point you towards some of the best, and our favorite, games for the system.
The Nintendo 3DS is extremely user friendly and reaches out to a wider audience than any previous Nintendo hand-held device.Â The main menu system, as pictured in the image to the right, is extremely quick and easy to use.Â Games are opened like apps, and you can go back to the Home screen at any time where you’ll be able to open a different application immediately.
The circle pad or slide pad on the left, is a new addition to Nintendo hand-helds and functions like a D-Pad but smoother and easier on the thumb.Â It works so well that Nintendo is releasing an accessory which adds another circle pad and attaches to the right side of the 3DS.
Nintendo has made a quality product that, despite early criticism, is quickly coming into its own providing interesting, useful apps, and great games both old and new.
Read on to find out which games we recommend and learn about some neat features on the 3DS. (more…)
