Did you know there’s over 100 Nintendo 3DS titles to try for free?

We parents are always looking for ways to entertain the kids without splashing the cash – particularly at this time of the year when the weather is grim and ‘just going outside’ isn’t always an appealing option.

In answer to this, Nintendo is reminding owners of Nintendo 3DS family systems – which includes Nintendo 2DS, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL, New Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL – that in total there are more than 100 demos* and games to start free of charge** through Nintendo eShop, the online app store built into Nintendo 3DS family systems.


The demos have something to suit every taste, and will give players the chance to battle and brawl in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, catch Pokémon in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, hang out with friends in Tomodachi Life or even feed, pet and dress animals with nintendogs + cats. In addition, several free-to-start games** – including Pokémon Rumble WorldFullbloxIRONFALL InvasionSteel Diver: Sub Wars and Nintendo Badge Arcade – will open up whole new worlds for players, providing them with the chance to take on completely new challenges and even uncover something unexpected.


Offering a diverse selection of fun at your fingertips, Nintendo eShop is your destination for family-friendly entertainment and the ideal way to try out games before you buy*, and even start playing some titles for free**. 

Simple and stress-free, downloading games and demos from Nintendo eShop allows players to keep their demos together on their system – accessible at just the touch of a button. Nintendo eShop can be found on the HOME Menu of any Nintendo 3DS family system – just look for the orange shopping bag***!

A 70's child, I’ve been married for a Very Long Time, and appear to have made four children, and collected one large and useless dog along the way. I work, I have four children, I have a dog… ergo, I do not do dusting or ironing. I began LittleStuff back in (gulp) 2004. I like huge mugs of tea. And Coffee. And Cake. And a steaming cone of crispy fresh fluffy chips, smothered in salt and vinegar. #healthyeater When I grow up I am going to be quietly graceful, organised and wear lipstick every day. In the meantime I *may* have a slight butterfly-brain issue.
