Nintendo 3DS: 24th March Midnight Release At 2 UK Game Retailers

Good news today for those of you waiting to get your hands on a new Nintendo 3DS console. The highly anticipated device will now be available for release from Midnight on March 24th in 2 of the main gaming retailers in the UK.

Yes, that’s right you can pick up one of these consoles from either Game or GameStation. Alan over at PR News via EuroGamer has kindly reported that Game will alone be opening some 100 stores for the big release event, details of which can be found on their website.

If its GameStation that you prefer to shop with, then head on over to one of their stores or as Alan stated, HMV in the heart of London’s Oxford Street, where you will be able to get your hands on one for £220.

For those of you who still may be unfamiliar with the console then let us reliterate what you will be getting for your hard earned pennies. The unique selling point to this console is no doubt the 3D concept with the added bonus of “no glasses.” Along with this, you will benefit from augmented reality game play, 3.5-inch screen, built-in camera for those 3D pictures and so on.
