  • Where is the microphone located? Ashley Nunn

    I know the 3DS has a built in microphone somewhere, because I need to blow into it as part of a Cooking Mama 4 minigame. However. I have no idea where it is, so I just generally blow at the bottom edge of the 3DS.

    I keep failing the minigame, most likely because I am blowing in the wrong spot.

    Where is the microphone located, so I can blow in the right spot and get past this mini-game (because I don't like it when Mama is mad at me)?

  • For the regular 3DS, the mic is the small hole under the Start button.

    For the 3DS XL, it is on the right of the Start button. It is a small hole marked with a 'mic' label above it.

  • I'm pretty sure there is one beside the R button that I discovered on accident.

  • I had to blow into the microphone for Dora, and I have the 3DS. There is a tiny hole next to the start button, but that didn't work. I found that it was the headphone port under where it says home.

  • The 3 buttons under the touch screen(select, home, and start) is where you can locate the microphone on the 3DS. it is right under the start button but a little to the right.

  • Here is a pic I found showing you where the mic on the Nintendo 3DS is located! Hope it helps! enter image description here

  • I finally got around to beating "Retro game challenge", and the credit screen includes a minigame where you fly a small spaceship on the bottom screen and can shoot energy bolts at Arino, located on the top screen. Arino, in turn, pelts you with various D-pad shaped projectiles. I thought this was just a cute addition, but after hitting Arino enough he changed color and became more agressive, which led me to believe you can actually win this minigame. Is it possible to completely defeat him before the credits are over? If so, what are the effects of such a victory, other than feeling good
