Get Warm And Fuzzy Inside From This Marriage Proposal By 3DS
Diamond rings are so last century. These days, tell her you love her with a lovingly crafted series of Mii-garlanded doodles!
We’re all about the warm and fuzzies here at 3DS Buzz. And if a film star dog didn’t fill your heart with glee, or a real-life Mario Kart bring a smile of merriment to your features, perhaps this will help turn that frown upside down.
The 3DS has many uses. You can take photos with it. You can record sounds on it. You can shoot people you know, love and cherish in the face as they fly terrifyingly around your room. Heck, if you’re feeling really fruity, you can even play games on it.
But there’s more! According to the following video, brought to our attention by gaming site The Tanooki… you can propose to your girlfriend with it!
That’s right, dear readers. You just witnessed a marriage proposal using the adorably twee doodlings of the Nintendo 3DS SwapNote/LetterBox application.
Wait, wait, don’t roll your eyes just yet. Wait for the ending, the answer’s really cool!
An endearing episode indeed, and we wish the happy couple every success. After all, a good Mii is hard to find in today’s breakneck-paced world of constant digital connections, microwave meals and endless celebrity ice skating shows. Or something.
Nonetheless, it’s a far more imaginative way to propose than the trite and tired down-on-one-knee-with-an-overpriced-shiny-piece-of-carbon thing, and we must applaud all parties involved for their sense of playful fun. Here’s to many happy years of kart racing, princess rescuing, finding hats in treasures chests and filling in puzzle panels!
There you have it folks. The Nintendo 3DS. Stereoscopic gaming device, fastest selling handheld in history, increasingly a favourite of videogame developers across the world… and also, apparently, an engine for romance. So full of surprises!
Yet another reason why you need to be sure to take your 3DS everywhere, it seems. One never knows when or how someone special might choose to pop the question…
