Getting a 3DS XL, now what?

#1TaplampPosted 4/9/2013 2:04:59 PM
I'm getting a 3DS XL this thursday, which of these titles should I buy as my first game for it?

Super Mario 3D Land
New Super Mario Bros 2
Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins (I just finished the amazing Wii U title!)
Luigi's Mansion 2: Dark Moon
(Other suggestions are welcome too)

Also, is there a place I can go online to view all the 3DS virtual console titles available?

Thanks!

Fire Emblem Awakening
Devil Survivor Overclocked
Etrian Odyssey IV
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
Luigis Mansion Dark Moon

These are my favs and must haves IMO

Out of your list TC, start with Super Mario 3D Land. It really shows off the 3DS' features well and is a blast to play. Then move on to something like Luigi's Mansion or Kid Icarus Uprising.

If you are in USA/Canada and have a Club Nintendo account then:

Luigi's Mansion 2: Dark Moon + 3DSXL = Free digital Super Mario 3D Land, or one of other 4 games.

This is a smarter move.

Yup. That's the way to go. Especially if both games are on your list.

Yeah I know about the Club Nintendo free game promo, it's awesome but I'm purchasing this system used.

I can't use the serial number on it to take advantage of the offer unless you guys know another way?

I'm between Super Mario 3d Land and Luigi's Mansion 2! I can't decide!

I do want to purchase a game new because I'm 60 coins from platinum status.

But hey, I've got another question for those experienced with owning the 3DS,

The seller I bought it from says that Mario Kart 7 is pre installed on the system, but he did a factory reset on the device before shipping it out. Obviously, this means that Mario Kart 7 is no longer on the 3DS but he says that once I have the 3DS I can just go into the eshop and download it for free back onto the system. Will I still be able to do this if I enter my Club Nintendo info into the 3DS? Does that make sense? Could there be a promo attached to the physical device?

I almost just sniped a copy of Super Mario 3d Land on ebay for 21 bucks. I hesitated because I need a new copy for those club nintendo coins!

Even if the system is wiped, with no former account information on it, I should be able to download it for free?
