3DS Tips, Tricks, & Secrets

After weeks of a severe internal struggle, I finally caved to the Animal Crossing craze and acquired a marvelous little machine you may know as the Nintendo 3DS. A brilliant thing, isn’t she? Built to exude charm even at the system level. In my time spent tinkering with the mechanics, however, I came across a few novel Easter eggs guaranteed to improve every owner’s handheld experience. “These tips, tricks, and secrets must be known across the land!” I exclaimed, “from sea to coelacanth-filled sea!” And so, do enjoy the following six nuggets of 3DS-enhancing knowledge, soak in the secrets, and get educated!
