The first 25 buyers at the other locations will get the special free case. At each location, visitors will have a chance to sample the device and 3DS cinch sacks and T-Shirts will be given away.

Available games to try out will include nintendogs + cats, Pilotwings Resort and Steel Diver, Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition, Madden NFL Football, LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars and Asphalt 3D.
