Play the Nintendo 3DS first!

Hot for 3DS? Live in the UK? Then read about a great chance to play Nintendo's handheld before its release from our friends at Official Nintendo Magazine...

You have heard all about the new Nintendo 3DS. But you really want to see it for yourself, right?

The Nintendo 3DS is the first ever games console capable of real 3D without glasses. You have to see it to believe it, and in association with Nintendo, Official Nintendo Magazine and HMV we’d like you to do just that. You can register now for your chance to join your fellow Nintendo fans to play on the new Nintendo 3DS before its general release on March 25th. The “plus one” invitation only pre-release events are being held on:

Saturday 12 & Sunday 13 February 2011 in Glasgow
Saturday 12 & Sunday 13 February 2011 in Bristol

“Official Nintendo Magazine readers in Glasgow and Bristol have got a unique opportunity to get their hands on the Nintendo 3DS way before their peers, so this is a really exciting event for us,” said ONM editor in chief Neil Long. “It really is a handheld that you have to see for yourself, so alongside our launch partner HMV we’re chuffed to be giving so many people the chance to discover how Nintendo 3DS is going to revolutionise portable gaming.”

There is also the chance to get some hands-on time with a range of as-yet unreleased games and software that come to life on Nintendo 3DS, you will also have the chance to pre-order the console at the events. If you are invited to be among the first in the UK to play on Nintendo 3DS you will receive a personalised invitation via email within the next 7 days. The invitation will contain important information on how to register for your slot at the event. Please note that the events are invitation only and you must be over 18 to attend.
