Add Some Sunshine to Your Child’s Winter with Nintendo 3DS
9th August, 2016 – It’s shaping up to be a great winter for young owners of Nintendo 3DS family systems. After the recent arrivals of Disney Art Academy and Kirby: Planet Robobot, the Nintendo 3DS line-up expands even further with the launch of Teddy Together this Thursday, August 11. With Nintendo 3DS, parents and kids alike can enjoy a wide variety of games on the go, allowing them to enjoy the unique fun of Nintendo games wherever they travel. The Nintendo 3DS family also includes the Nintendo 2DS system, which plays all Nintendo 3DS games in 2D, and is ideal for younger gamers.
For a unique experience they won’t forget, from this Thursday younger players can find a fun new furry friend in Teddy Together (SRP AU$49.95). From the very moment Teddy jumps out of a box delivered to the player’s house, along with a mysterious key, players are drawn into a world where teddy bears come to life, because Teddy really speaks! Through fun mini-games that are easy to understand, young children can make friends with this cuddly teddy and practise their reading, spelling and interpersonal skills, all at the same time. These activities can be tackled with the assistance of a keen parent as well, since the player can introduce their friends and family to Teddy throughout the game. Find out first-hand why Teddy Together makes the ideal interactive bedtime story by watching the official Teddy Together trailer!
Another colourful, kid-friendly title is Disney Art Academy (SRP AU$49.95), which features a wide variety of tools to learn to draw more than 80 Disney and Pixar characters in 2D.
