The 3DS system update paves the way for paid add-on content and free demos to reach the eShop, but while Europe and North America has to wait a little while for demos Japan's store has a few to choose from.
Owners of Japanese consoles can choose free trials of the following games:
- Dead or Alive: Dimensions
- Monster Hunter 3 G
- Cooking Mama 4: Kitchen Magic
- Puyo Puyo
- Crayon Shin Chan
- New Love Plus
Some of these demos are only available for a limited number of plays: Monster Hunter and Dead or Alive have a 30-play limit, for instance.
Here's hoping we get some free demo content in the West soon.
