Ella Eyre’s top Nintendo 3DS games to play with friends
Singer-songwriter Ella Eyre shares her Life in Nintendo 3DS.
Singer-songwriter Ella Eyre shares her Life in Nintendo 3DS, giving an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at her life and how she plays games with her best friends during downtime.
“I love playing video games, they stimulate my brain in a different way,” says Ella. “It’s a bit of an escape and it’s so accessible to find a game that suits your personality and play style. I don’t think you’re ever too old to play, and sometimes that means getting a Nintendo 3DS out and forgetting reality for a while.”
Ella’s love for games spills into her family and friends’ lives too. The singer-songwriter often spends her downtime hanging with her nearest and dearest pals. Whether it’s helping each other’s Mii characters realise their hopes and dreams in Tomodachi Life, letting their imaginations run free as they hone their design skills in Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, or just getting competitive with her band mates in Mario Kart 7, games have always been centre stage in her life.
Find out more about Ella’s favourite games to play with her friends:
The bonkers one: Tomodachi Life
Ella loves playing Tomodachi Life with her friend Chloe. A creative soul, Ella loves getting carried away with the fictional goings-on of her island. “I’m away from home a lot, so I love things that give me a sense of familiarity. It really makes me laugh to see my favourite people being silly… It reminds me that even if I’m not with them, I can still watch them mess around together.”
The creative one: Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer
Ella has taken inspiration for designing her new flat by experimenting with different themes, layouts and items in Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer. Ella and her friends Nana and Bethan put their decorating skills to the test to design facilities, homes and gardens for their animal friends. The girls also share their design tips and their finished designs.
The speedy one: Mario Kart 7
Ella and her band spend a lot of time on the road and rehearsing together, so they love to play Mario Kart 7 to let off steam and enjoy some healthy competition. Ella and her band love competing in Mario Kart, whether it’s who’s fastest or who’s won the most races. She always makes sure to choose her lucky charm driver, Yoshi, as well as the best kart frame, tyres and glider to create the custom kart to give her the best chance of taking first place.
Ella loves the variety of tracks that have different themes and the great attention to detail in the design, and has a few tips to help make winning easier. Her biggest tip is to keep calm, secondly once you’ve sussed out the track, Ella recommends to use the shortcuts – it’s more fun! – and finally, always use your items wisely. Don’t fire them all off in a panic, save them for when you need to get ahead!
