The only handheld console you'll need
on 12 October 2014
I've been meaning to buy a 3DS console for a while now but hadn't done in the past out of a lack of games for it. Originally, the only tempting titles were the initial pokemon releases of X and Y, Mario Kart, and Zelda. However, 2014's reveals made me want one more and more until they revealed this beauty and I just couldn't resist any more!
First impressions: I was very surprised by the glossy finish, I was expecting matte like the rest of the consoles but this was a pleasant surprise. The design is incredible and the console feels comfortable, with all the buttons reachable and the screen of a nice size. It comes with a 4GB SD card loaded with SSB so you don't need to swap cartridges, but of course as you may well know, there isn't a charger included - you'll have to use one from an old DSi or DSi XL (or even 3DS) or buy one separately.
The game itself is amazing, a must have for any SSB fan who wants to play on the go, and a great game for those who want to play with friends away from home. While it has left out some of the best features that Brawl had, this is more than a neat enough game with all the fun bits and a nice little smash run mode, where there is a pre-battle adventure leading up to a final battle. The mii creator is incredibly fun and offers decent customisation, along with the specials customiser for other characters etc.
Overall, if you want a 3DS and a copy of SSB3DS- why not both?
