Reasons to have faith in Nintendo 3DS

A lot of gamers, Nintendo fans and my close friends are starting to loose faith in the 3DS. I feel like I am one of the few gamers out there who loves the 3DS and is looking forward to it’s future. Sure it didn’t sell great, has already got a price cut and is currently lacking a decent line of games that aren’t ports or remakes but let me remind you why you should have faith in this amazing handheld.

Games to look forward to

  • Kid Icarus: Uprising
  • Luigi’s Mansion 2
  • Mario Kart 7
  • Super Mario 3D Land
  • Animal Crossing
  • Monster Hunter 3G
  • Monster Hunter 4
  • Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D
  • Resident Evil: Revelations
  • Paper Mario
  • Cave Story 3D
  • Sonic Generations
  • Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle
  • Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright
  • Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games
  • Roller Coaster Tycoon 3D

Games you know they’ll make (or have announced already)

  • Tekken 3D
  • Super Smash Bros.
  • Mario Tennis
  • Ninja Gaiden
  • Pokèmon
  • Mario Party/Wii Party
  • Legend of Zelda (Majora’s Mask?)
  • Donkey Kong Country
  • Metroid
  • Kirby
  • Yoshi’s Island
  • Mortal Kombat (I’m hoping!)
  • Capcom/Street Fighter vs.
  • Call of Duty (cringes…)
That’s all I could think of at the top of my head, I’m sure there’s more.

Love it or hate it, the circle pad attachment will enhance those titles that require camera control or FPS controls. It is optional, you don’t like it then don’t buy it. We are also promised a software update including 3D video recording and more StreetPass goodies. Not to mention tonnes of Virtual Console releases. We can look forward to more AR cards/games too.

I don’t go a day without playing something on my 3DS, whether that be a classic GameBoy game or new release.

  1. I have a 3DS already, and I love it to pieces. I love Nintendo and I have 100% faith in them! The game I’m waiting for them to announce is Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D, Ocarina of Time 3D is so much fun, I really want to play it’s sequel on 3DS. I don’t really know if they will remake Majora’s Mask, it seems uncertain right now, but it would make me really happy if they did!

  2. Yeah I’d love for them to port Majora’s Mask over, I am one of those who shamefully have not finished the game…

    Star Fox 64 3D is amazing, bring on more N64 remakes please Nintendo!
