Mario comes to life in the palm of your hand in the Mushroom Kingdom for this all new adventure. Mario’s arch rival Bowser is up to his old tricks again, Princess Peach has been kidnapped and only you can rescue her. To help you in your adventure you can use a mixture of brand new and classic abilities such as the Tanooki Suit, Propeller Box, Boomerang Mario and binoculars to name a few.
The popular Tanooki Suit returns allowing you to float in mid air and use the cute tail to attack enemies, whilst Boomerang Mario provides an interesting twist on the classic Boomerang Bros. enemies, as Mario dons a blue shell and helmet and has the ability to immobilise his enemies with a boomerang. The Propeller Box allows Mario to fly high in the air and reach hidden areas, while the binoculars placed within some stages allow you to shift perspective to first person and survey the vivid and colourful landscapes. By using the unique motion controls of the Nintendo 3DS to move the field of vision of the binoculars, you can spot enemies, obstacles and even hidden objectives.
Nintendo 3DS offers Parental Controls so that parents can control the level of 3D their children can view on the Nintendo 3DS as well as the content they can access. Nintendo 3DS also features a 3D depth slider which lets players turn off or adjust the level of 3D they want on the 3D Screen, two built-in screens for different functionality, a Circle Pad which provides a full 360 degrees of direction, a built-in motion sensor and gyro sensor, and houses a 2GB SD Memory Card. It is equipped with three cameras (two of which are facing outwards to allow the taking of 3D pictures and video*), and is compatible with AR Cards which come packaged with Nintendo 3DS. Nintendo 3DS is also backwards compatible with most existing Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi games, which can be played in 2D on your Nintendo 3DS system.
Awesome console, the fact you can download old gameboy games as well makes this a must have for any '80s gamer. Just wish I'd realised the XL was coming out only a few weeks later. Read morePublished 22 days ago by Daniel Wilberforce
Fantastic , beat all my expectations.
Love that you can adjust the 3D settings, and that it is as compact as the original Lite.
