Taiwanese Nintendo 3DS Promo Scans

tl;dr Here are some promo scans for the Taiwanese release of The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes and Super Smash Brothers Brawl. Even though these games are official Taiwanese releases they are both in Japanese and apart from the box and manual are not localised.

The ill-fated Taiwanese Nintendo 3DS didn’t have many games released for it which, together with region locking, was the reason for the system’s downfall. After the release of some high-quality localised games, such as Ocarina of Time and Super Mario 3DS Land, Nintendo decided to leave Taiwan. From that point on Nintendo would instead release Japanese language games for the Taiwanese region with the addition of Chinese language boxes and manuals.

The following scans are for two such games – Super Smash Brothers Brawl and The Legend of Zelda Triforce Heroes.

I’ll cover the Taiwanese 3DS in more detail in a later post. The 3DS situation in Taiwan was a huge mess which screwed over gamers who chose the localised system and possible damaged Nintendo’s reputation in Taiwan for the future.
