Free Games Up For Grabs On The Nintendo 3DS eShop

Last Updated on March 11, 2023

The Nintendo 3DS eShop is shutting down for good on the 27th of March, but that hasn’t stopped developer Four Horses from giving the storefront a last hurrah.

If you dust off your Nintendo 3DS, You can download Kid Tripp and Digger Dan DX for free right now. The price removal came as a surprise to the dev team, who previously had their request for the price reduction refused by Nintendo.

A Twitter user queried the offer, asking if Four Horses would “prefer to make some money” off their hard work, but as the eShop is closing, the developers said they wanted to get the games into as many hands as possible.

Digger Dan DX was never ported to any other device, so if you want to try it out, you’ll need to do so before the month ends.

If those titles don’t tickle your fancy, there are many absurdly good deals on the eShop from other developers, including Capcom and Way Forward. Some great franchises like Monster Hunter and Ace Attorney have titles on sale for as little as $2.99!

Sadly, the Wii U store closes on the same day, and even though it failed to reach the lofty heights of its predecessor, the Wii, It’s still a beloved console for those that had it. There’s a sale on that storefront too, so grab yourself a bargain while you can.
