Nintendo announced a while back that they'd be rolling out playable demos to their stereoscopic handheld. So where are they? When are they coming?


It all starts tomorrow with a downloadable slice of Resident Evil Revelations, according to Gamasutra. Following the sample of Capcom's survival action game—which is out in full next month—demos for Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D, Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games and Rhythm Thief & the Emperor's Treasure will reportedly show up on the 3DS's eShop.


You can see them in action in Japan, thanks to Brian Ashcraft, who notes that you'll only be able to play them a certain number of times. Nintendo's new to the whole demo business so it'll be interesting to see how this all plays out as they keep adding pre-release content to the eShop

It seems odd to limit how many times you can play a demo...I mean, why?

If I play the demo 20 times, I can still go no further than what the demo allows me to do, so it has no bad effect on the rest of the game.

I remember importing the RE4 demo on the GameCube, you only get to play the to the end of the first village encounter. I played that to death, mastering how to survive that encounter, so when the final game came along I was able to masterfully survive that first onslaught...and then the rest of the game began...

I'd like to do the same with this, but if I'm limited to a few playthroughs...can I delete and re-download?
