Can someone help me please? I've looked and looked online and am more confused.
We've bought DS a 2DS for Xmas. I thought it'd be a nice surprise to buy DH one too, so they can play multiplayer games together.
But, how does it work? I know not all games are multiplayer. Some seem to be multiplayer but require each of the players to have the game too. Some seem to linkup. But how do you know this by looking at the box?
I went to Game today, and they told me I'd need to buy two games for them to play mariokart, and that there aren't really any 3DS games you can only buy one copy of for multiplayer. I've seen online that you can share one between two for mariokart, but the two sales assistants both insisted I'd need two copies. Are they right?
Also, what about the Pokemon games? We've bought DS Pokemon Moon - do I need another copy for multiplayer? Street fighter?
So, how can I tell what the deal is, given I'm not sure I trust the shop assistants...
Well if DH wants to play Pokemon he'll really need his own copy, because you can only have one save file on the Pokemon games. And it's more sensible to get the "opposite" version because some Pokemon are in one and not the other so DS and DH can trade to 'catch em all'. And then the multiplayer is relevant.
If DH has no interest in playing Pokemon himself, there's not much point.
Just catching up on this one. I quite fancy buying the 2 Pokemon games for my son and myself now, would be fun to swap different Pokemons between us. Not sure if I can justify an extra Christmas present now though!
