You can expect plenty of 3DS previews to land everyday next week. Nick and I went hands-on with Nintendo's latest handheld at GDC and now that I'm out of the woods with all of my other previews, the 3DS is going to get a little loving.
One thing I noticed though was that you'll never really understand how well the 3D effect works until you see it for yourself.
Luckily, Nintendo's made sure to give people plenty of time before the release date to try out a couple of games. You'll find Nintendo 3DS Demo Pods in four cities in America with more demo stations opening across the United States in the coming weeks. Four cities will get dedicated 3DS Demo Pods for several weeks:
Chicago, IL 03/07 to 04/03
Los Angeles, CA 03/07 to 04/03
New York, NY 03/09 to 03/30
San Francisco, CA 03/07 to 04/03
The 3DS Demo Pods will have Pilotwings Resort, Steel Diver, Asphalt 3D, nintendogs + cats, Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars, Madden NFL Football, and Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition available. You'll also be able to try out some of the 3DS's unique hardware features like AR Games: Archery, Face Raiders, Nintendo 3DS Camera, and the Mii Maker.
Of course, if you're at PAX East this weekend you'll probably find a few 3DS units to try out.
