Buy Your Sweetheart a Pearl Pink Nintendo 3DS for Valentine’s Day


Hey fellas, having trouble figuring out what to get the gaming gal lover in your life for Valentine’s Day? Chocolates and flowers and jewelry are so predictable, so how’s about you buy your sweetheart a pink Nintendo 3DS system and then spend the evening cuddled up under the covers gaming together? Completely nude, of course.

You have that option now, thanks to Nintendo. Available in North America starting February 10th, the standalone Pearl Pink Nintendo 3DS handheld gaming device, priced at the standard $169.99, is a great gift for the ladies. Or guys who like pink. I like pink and wouldn’t be embarrassed to walk around with one of these in my pocket.

Here are other ways the Pearl Pink 3DS can bring gaming lovebirds together:

– With the system’s built-in camera, sweethearts can each use their system to capture and share 3D photos and videos of romantic outings this Valentine’s Day – and always.

– The new Swapnote application, which is available for download from the Nintendo eShop at no cost, lets users create and send customized 3D love notes to their sweethearts from their Nintendo 3DS.

– The adorable virtual pets in the nintendogs + cats game can bring out players’ sweet side and make great portable companions on those lonely days when they’re apart.

– Users can share creative passion with their beloved by playing downloadable games such as Pushmo and Freakyforms: Your Creations, Alive!, both available from the Nintendo eShop, and by exchanging QR codes to show off their heartfelt handiwork.

– The multiplayer modes in the Mario Kart 7 game invite players to get their hearts and their karts racing on a wild array of 3D Mario-themed courses.
