Nintendo to offer pre-release title samples in North America beginning with Capcom's latest Resident Evil game tomorrow.
In October, Nintendo promised that demos would be a part of the 3DS's major November update. However, none have yet been offered. Today, Nintendo shed light on the matter, announcing 3DS demos will come to the system's eShop beginning tomorrow.
The first demo in the eShop will be for Capcom's Resident Evil: Revelations. Following that will be a trial for Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games, which will become available on January 26. Demos to follow at unspecified dates include Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D and Rayman Origins. Nintendo said new offerings will be available "periodically."

I have played with the demo, and I loved it! It is more like original Resident Evil, and it is quite scary in 3D! I can't wait for the full version. I suppose this is going to be the reason for purchasing 3DS for lots of people.
Wow! This game is awesome!!! I peed and pooped in my pants a little....then I saw there was a Revelations demo!!
I remember those amazing GameCube demo disk too. Nintendo is making a good decision to release demos again.
Damn RE: Revelations looks great! Finally, the major 3DS games are starting to come out. Demos for Nintendo! Yeah!
I remember having that demo disc that came with Mario Kart Double Dash. :) I am glad they are doing digital demos now. It is really needed nowadays.
I love me some demos I do.They should be an industry requirement.Oh and uh, just so everyone knows, this is far from the first time you could get demos on a Nintendo system.It goes as far back as Gamecube demo discs.I still have one.It's not like it's some big revelation to them all of the sudden.Pun. I sure am glad I destroyed a couple of Nintendo haters' little fantasies there, lol.
OMG! Nintendo is going to start having demos. DEMOS on a Nintendo system! I think 2012 may really be the year of the apocalypse.
A Resident Evil demo tomorrow? Wow, now that's what I call... *puts sunglasses on* A Revelation! YEEEEEAAAAAAAAAH
Finally! Tomorrow will be an epic day xD Pre-ordered Re Revelations allready, looks stunning. I'm getting the circle pad with it aswell, just because :D
about time. At least they're starting off with a (hopefully) great game for the system. Can't wait to give it a go.
