Slide games for the ages of two to eight will soon be available on the Nintendo 3DS.
The slide game Slope is a puzzle game, which players have to slide a slide on a flat surface to reach the destination.
Players can use different slide configurations to solve the puzzle.
Slide games are available as part of a family-friendly package with the Nintendo Wii U game Slider Plus, which is also being released in Australia on August 25.
“It’s great for children, and we wanted to give them something to play on their own,” said Mark Koepp, director of marketing at Nintendo of Australia.
“We wanted to make sure that they had a fun time with the game.”
Slope will be available to download for the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.
It also comes with a sticker that players can use to unlock a new slide, and the slide games can be played on any device.
“Kids will love the new Nintendo 3ds, which have a lot of different options for slide games,” said Koeffers.
“With Slope, Nintendo is providing something for them to play, which has the potential to be a new trend.”
The Nintendo 3D games will be supported on the 3DS by a free Nintendo Wi -Fi Controller.
The Wii U GamePad, the Nintendo TV, and an optional Nintendo DSi version of Slope are also available in the bundle.
The 3DS can also play games on the Wii U Virtual Console.
The Nintendo Wi Wi-fi Controller comes with four free games, the 3D game Slide, a sticker, and two new sliders: Slope and Sliding.
The games come with one extra sticker.
Sliding is a game in which the player must slide an object over a surface in order to reach a destination.
Slope also has a sticker to unlock additional slides.
Players have to navigate the map to find the destination of the slide, using the four stickers.
“There are lots of different types of slide games, and Slope can help kids develop a lot more of an intuitive sense of where they are and what to do,” said John Gaughan, executive director of Nintendo of Ireland.
The three-player game Sliding includes a sticker on the gamepad and three different slide combinations to choose from.
The sticker can be used to unlock other slides and the ability to choose which slide to play.
Slider games are also compatible with the 3rd party games Miiverse, Wii U eShop, and Nintendo’s Shop Nintendo.
“The popularity of Sliding games is definitely growing,” said Gaugh.
“These games help kids learn to navigate through a variety of spaces and have fun with their environment.”
The new games are being made available to players through Nintendo eShop in Australia.
Nintendo of NSW will offer the games for free.
