The official website for Super Mario 3D Land has revealed that some levels in the game will feature mounted binoculars that allow Mario to look around the stage using the gyroscope and the L and R buttons to zoom in and out.
Gamestop has announced that anyone who pre-orders the fantastic Super Mario 3D Land on the Nintendo 3DS will be eligible for this adorable key chain. The key chain seems to be a Gamestop exclusive in the United States at this point but other stores might offer it in other countries. Who wants one?
GameStop in the US is offering a Tanooki Mario keychain with the preorder of Super Mario 3D Land. There are no pictures of the keychain at the moment, as soon as we find one better believe that we will let you know, but you can click here to preorder the game with Gamestop anyway.

With Nintendo placing emphasis on delivering strong gaming experiences to their latest handheld. just how important is the 3D in the 3DS? According to a recent survey, more than 28 percent of 3DS owners feel the special effect takes away from gameplay.
The large percentage of users dissatisfied with the portable's 3D effect was revealed yesterday, as research firm Interpret LLC delivered the results of its annual 3D survey at the 3D Gaming Summit in Hollywood, California. In comparison, only 22 percent of 3DS owners indicated the 3D improved gameplay, while 13 percent indicated they preferred playing with the effect switched off.
I'm in that 13 percent myself. Each new game I play on the handheld gets a quick glimpse in 3D before the slider gets turned off completely.
The good news is that awareness of the 3DS was up over last year, with 60 percent of respondents indicating knowledge of the handheld. Of that 60 percent, however, only 28 percent were aware of the glasses-free 3D feature, perhaps a result of Nintendo's shifting focus from hardware to software.
It's a shift that makes sense. With only 7 percent of respondents indicating a portable device as their ideal 3D solution (56 percent preferred a 3D TV connected console), the 3D in 3DS isn't proving to be the selling point it first seemed to be.
