The first Nintendo 3DS hit retail shelves in 2011. Since then, gamers across the globe have taken a liking to these handheld systems. The games available for the 3DS are ridiculously fun and the system itself is easy to use for fans of all ages. Since Nintendo, as a company, is wildly popular, it’s no surprise the 3DS was readily received by fans. In fact, it seems as though nearly everyone, from hardcore to casual gamers, has a 3DS.

Most fans of Nintendo are concerned with gameplay and which titles will be available on the system. Notably, players will expect at least one Mario title and one Pokemon title included in the list of games which can be played on the 3DS. That’s understandable, considering the fact those two titles specifically have become synonymous with the Nintendo brand. Players can’t think of one existing without the other and it’s pretty much a given Nintendo will deliver on the Mario and Pokemon front. What if, while being obsessed with new games, 3DS players overlooked some amazing features of the handheld system itself?

There are certain aspects of the Nintendo 3DS some players may not be fully aware of. From hidden games to Pikmin assistants, it’s likely most players may have easily overlooked these functions. Missing these functions may be due to the fact players are often eager to get into their favorite game or they didn’t anticipate Nintendo adding easter eggs and perks to their handheld system. Either way, there are some interesting functions of the Nintendo 3DS available for players.

    I remember the days when I spent countless hours making Miis. I've been making miis ever since u was 4 or 5 and now I'm 11. I even went on a webpage and used a lot of paper for Miis. I used so much paper to print miis. I made and deleted countless Miis. You should see how many I have on my Wii U.
