I have $300 bucks to spend. What 3DS system and game(s) should I get and why?

What would you do and why?

Either 3DS. The XL has more battery I've read, but it doesn't work with awesome stuff like limited edition Kingdom hearts shell.

Get a nice size SD card, 16 - 32gb. Download games are way easier to grab and they are getting large. Fire emblem awakening was a little more than 1gb.

Check the eshop for what it has to download, and try demos and such. You don't need to buy a big game when a lot of the ones on the eshop are fun.

Also get kid icuras. Its not download but its good. May hurt your hand after a while.

3DS XL (red) - because XL is better and red is good.

Ocarina of Time - because it's a good game. especially get if you've not played it/not played it in 10 years.

Fire Emblem - because it's a good SRPG

Kid Icarus - because it's a fun and unique game, the controls might be a little trying but it's humorous and the voice work is fantastic

Mario 3D Land - because it's the best Mario platformer on the system

Harvest Moon: New Beginning - because it'll last you forever and has some nice customization, one of the best harvest moon games (after the first month)

3DS XL - Blue Mario Kart Bundle

Comes with Mario Kart 7 preinstalled at no added cost.

Red Standard 3DS Mario 3D Land bundle

Comes with Mario 3D Land preinstalled at no added cost.

Both of these have obvious advantages coming with one of the highest rated games on the 3DS for no extra money.

Do you know where I can still get this bundle at retail price $199.00 online/in-store? It seems that I can't find it anywhere and it's marked up everywhere else.

Then pick up a fire emblem bundle. Limited edition color and design, and it came out recently so there's a solid chance of finding one relatively close. Only drawback is it isn't an XL model.

Use pick up at store and see if there's any near you. Closest to me was just over 20 miles away.

The standard red 3D land bundle however has a lot more closer to me though.


Bing maps sucks. Anyway, says there isn't one within a 100 miles radius. Am I screwed?

Thanks. That bundle is seriously attractive.

However, Ninty got a bit greedy on it (not much of a savings) and it's not an XL. I really kind of want an XL :/

You should buy all the fire emblems you can and profit off Canadians.
