by on June 30, 2011

A lot of stuff was announced for the Nintendo 3DS at E3 a couple of weeks ago, a lot of games that a lot of us can’t wait to get our hands on, but while announcing new games is all well and good there’s one major problem with showing trailers of upcoming Nintendo 3DS games…

They’re in 2D!

That’s all about to change, following the recent reveal of upcoming games for Nintendo 3DS at E3 Expo 2011 in Los Angeles, Nintendo is giving you the chance to download ten free game trailers showcasing some of the landmark games which were showcased, and which are arriving soon for the Nintendo 3DS. Trailers for upcoming titles such as Mario Kart, Star Fox 64 3D and Super Mario, to name but a few, will be available to download from the Nintendo eShop from 1st July for a limited time only.

Arriving in two packages, each containing five trailers, this content will be available via the new Nintendo eShop made available by a recent system update to your Nintendo 3DS system.

The first set of trailers contains Mario Kart, Resident Evil: Revelations, Star Fox 64 3D, Super Mario and The Legend of Zelda:Ocarina of Time 3D and will be available from 1st July – 20th July.

Keep an eye out for the second batch of 3D trailers from E3 2011 which include Animal Crossing, Kid Icarus:Uprising, Luigi’s Mansion 2, Metal Gear Solid 3D Snake Eater and Paper Mario which will become available to download from Nintendo eShop next week for a limited period of time only.

The Nintendo eShop, gives Nintendo 3DS owners access to a vast array of new 2D and 3D exclusive content, including free downloads such as the Pokédex 3D, original 3D software, 3D Classics, Game Boy and Game Boy Color “Virtual Console” games and an extensive library of Nintendo DSiWare games. New content is added every Thursday so make sure you check back regularly.

If you haven’t performed the recommended system update yet and want to download the E3 trailers, simply start the “System Settings” from the Home Menu, select “Other Settings” and scroll the page right to select “System Update.” Once updated enter the newly downloaded Nintendo eShop and download the free trailers.
