If you’re looking to get in some last-minute gaming fun before the summer comes to a close and it’s back to school, Nintendo would like you to take a look at their handheld gaming system, 3DS. That said, their latest sales pitch could afford to be a lot more current. Nintendo’s new 3DS Summer commercial advertises a handful of fantastic games…that came out four to five years ago.

Mario Kart 7 (2011), Animal Crossing: New Leaf (2012 in Japan, 2013 in the West), and Super Mario 3D Land (2011) take up most of the spotlight in the new commercial. Age aside, they are all really fun games, and new 3DS owners would be wise to check them out. Last year’s Style Savvy: Fashion Forward (which launched just last week in the US) also gets some quick screen time, but no actual mention. You can check it out by clicking above.
