VGBlogger Celebrates Nintendo 3DS Relaunch


August 12th is here, and the Nintendo 3DS has dropped to its new price point of $169.99. While March 27th remains the 3DS’ official launch date, I consider today the system’s real launch. So let’s just call it the relaunch!

Between the cheaper price, the availability of key online features, such as the Internet browser and eShop, and the software library finally starting to come into its own for the fall push, the 3DS of today is the 3DS as it should have been from the very beginning. And since we missed the launch the first time around, we’re going to take the weekend to celebrate this magnificent relaunch.

Beginning today, we have a full slate of coverage lined up through the weekend to get you acquainted with Nintendo’s portable gaming machine and its games. To start with, check out the following links to our original 3DS hardware review, our previous game reviews, and other relevant news items. If you have any questions about the 3DS or a particular game you feel like asking before deciding whether or not to pick one up, just drop your query in the comments and we’ll get back to you.

Read away, and stay tuned for more!
