Nintendo 3DS

GAME have announced that they’re opening a third of stores tonight for the launch of the New Nintendo 3DS tomorrow to sell both the New Nintendo 3DS, and the New Nintendo 3DS XL.

On top of that, GAME have also detailed a workaround for those wanting to trade-in their old hardware, that hopefully helps bypass Nintendo’s awkward data transfer requirement, which needs both new and old machines present to transfer game saves and downloaded games themselves..

Those who buy a new console and keep the receipt handy are guaranteed to receive the trade-in value offered for seven days after purchase. So you can purchase your New Nintendo 3DS, keep your old one too, transfer the data, and then sell your old console for the full trade-in value.

It’s also worth noting that GAME has exclusivity on the New Nintendo 3DS XL Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Special Edition version of the console, which is definitely worth a purchase.

“For years, Nintendo has been at the forefront of handheld consoles and we know fans will be excited about the latest developments in 3D gameplay,” GAME category director Charlotte Knight said. “Plus with a range of ways to pay at GAME from trade-in to GAME Reward points, there is something to suit every budget.

“We know our customers are keen to get their hands on the latest technology as soon as possible so we’re excited to announce tonight’s midnight openings.”
