Nintendo and Best Buy Team Up for New 3DS XL Hands-On Event March 7th

Nintendo has a good habit of encouraging 3DS owners to leave the comfort of their home to traverse to Nintendo Zones across the land. These Wi-Fi hot spots specialize in passing along Street-and SpotPass tags. They also like to collaborate with specific retailers to incentive those 3DS owners to do business with said retailer, as with retailer exclusives. This weekend, Nintendo will once again team up with retailer Best Buy, for a special New Nintendo 3DS XL demo and to distribute a special Mii visitor.

So it is written, and sneakily hidden within Nintendo’s downloads PR this morning:

Stop by select Best Buy stores from 1 to 4 p.m. (local time) on March 7 to try out the New Nintendo 3DS XL system with amiibo figures in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS. You can also play the Nintendo 3DS games everyone is talking about: The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. Bring your Nintendo 3DS system with you for the chance to get a special Mii character of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D producer, Eiji Aonuma, and collect Mii characters to fill puzzle panels in Puzzle Swap and help out in StreetPass Mii Plaza games.

As you can see, Nintendo is putting emphasis on recently-released 3DS software that utilize the New 3DS XL’s extra control options. If you already own those games, then your incentive to travel to Best Buy this Saturday should be the special Mii distribution of Eiji Aonuma for those sweet, sweet puzzle pieces.

This 3DS promotional event is on March 7th, for a mere three hour window of 1 to 4 p.m. Check here to see if your local Best Buy is participating.
