Photos from the New Nintendo 3DS XL/The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D Preview

Lines, swag, and pre-release fun.

As you might recall from my post from a couple of weeks ago regarding Nintendo of Canada’s preview events at Future Shop and Best Buy for the upcoming New Nintendo 3DS XL and the simultaneous launch of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D. Only a few of the events are left to go down in Alberta, Quebec, and Ontario, so if you’re contemplating the trip, here are a few pics of what you’ll be in for.

The following pictures were taken at the event held at the Eaton Centre Best Buy on January 24th.


You knew there would be a line. Fortunately, the wait for a chance to go hands-on with the new systems wasn’t too bad.

Kids and adults alike are fans of Link’s adventures, so it’s little surprise to see both taking part in the event.

While waiting in line, the opportunity was presented to not only enter a drawing to win a $50 Best Buy gift card, but to also claim a special (metal!) keychain of the eponymous mask of Majora itself!

To check out a video recapping the event, visit Nintendo of Canada’s Facebook post here.

The New Nintendo 3DS XL and The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D will both be available on February 13th, 2015. Check back here closer to the date, as I hope to have reviews of both available in time for their launch!
