3DS XL UK Launch Trailer is Quite Small

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

30 seconds of familiar Mario action

With 3DS XL officially arriving in stores tomorrow, Nintendo UK has released a short promotional trailer to celebrate the fact. The footage used appears to be recycled from the announcement trailer broadcast on Nintendo Direct a little over a month ago, showing the original and larger model side-by-side, with some New Super Mario Bros. 2 action on both screens.

It does seem surprising that the promo uses this footage, especially as it's showing off a game that doesn't arrive for a few weeks. With Freakyforms Deluxe: Your Creations, Alive! and New Art Academy arriving on the same date, a new advert showing those alongside the console may have been worthwhile. In any case, check it out below.

Officially arriving at stores tomorrow, already in my hands today, along with the new Art Academy. :D

Thanks to GAME, I even got a £10 voucher for the console purchase, and about £5 worth of rewards points on my gamecard. This is totally going towards a eShop card with a large discount.

Tbh this is a really bad launch trailer :/
It is the exact same as the reveal trailer (but shorter and less informative!!)
Anyway, at the end of the day, I don't really mind because I'm getting it anyway...
(When it FINALLY comes to Australia) :/

Anyone else notice that the XL is positioned slightly closer to the camera, so that its screen looks even bigger? Ah, perspective...

After the cheapest 3DS XL deal?

If you are new to Zavvi make an account with referrer code ZV15625875 to get 5% off making it £159.55

If you buy it after the day of release as well you can use code CONSOLE at checkout to receive another £5.95 making it less than £155

Wasn't very satisfying not seeing anything new. Oh Well, Not getting one unless a Limited Edition one comes out.

Just under a month until it's released here. I'm not sure if I'll be getting one straight away, though. I really need to save up for my holiday in October.
