Nintendo 3DS XL South African Launch Parties Revealed

Nintendo SA has decided to not just go with a party – they have decided to go with many parties.  All around the country.  At three community events.

The parties will celebrate the arrival of the Nintendo 3DS XL in South Africa and you – yes, you, the SA gamer – are cordially invited to partake in the festivities.

Full details of each event will be revealed in the coming weeks, but for now know that the events will be happening in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban and will be hosted by the respective city’s gaming community.

These launch events will also host Mario Kart 7 racing tournaments.  Particpants should bring along their Nintendo 3DS handheld, but the good folk of Nintendo SA will have a few spare 3DS consoles for those not lucky enough to own one.

There will of course most likely be prizes, so get following your city’s planners (not the fools at the local authority…) to keep informed.


The 2upGamers 8th Lap on Friday 3 August will host the launch party.  There will also be plenty more happening – as is always the 2upGamers way – so head to their website, follow them on Twitter or check them on Facebook.


The event will be hosted by the JHBGamers on Saturday 28 July.  Follow them on Twitter or check them on Facebook.


The event will be hosted by the DBNGamers on Friday 27 July.  Follow them on Twitter or check them on Facebook.

So get in there fast.  If you snooze, you lose.  Put the pedal to the metal.  Alright, kinda run out of gas now…
