Still sad to see no Black and White news. The Black 3DS is my favorite. Hopefully, it's matte instead of glossy.

ooh, do i see an analog pad? that could be interesting. never seen one of those on a Nintendo handheld before... or at least, i havent. i like the red one~ but then, i like me electronics red. i hope its glossy~

I am reserving myself a red 3DS the moment they hit the stores. I think they said at the Conference late 2010? That basically means Christmas. Happy Christmas to me!

But yeah, I'm a little peeved they didn't show more of the physical console at the Conference for people who were live-streaming, but it looked nicely-built, compact, and sturdy. I can't wait to hear more details about its games...Kid Icarus looks brilliant, as do Mario Kart and Nintendogs & Cats, but I'm in the market for some RPG's. O:

There's something I really don't like about it. The assymmetry normally isn't a problem, but I'm bothered by how the top screen dwarves the touch screen. They also could've made it easier to grasp, but I'm not complaining that much since it wasn't particularly hard to grasp in the first place. The analog stick should be better than the PSP hopefully. It looks dull otherwise, but let's hope it won't be the next virtual boy.

Lol, if remakes and Mario are all it takes too woo you, then Nintendo basically won every E3 conference since those are the only good things they're coming out with these days.

The asymmetry sort-of bothers me too now that I study the pictures, but I wonder if you just get used to it whilst playing?

Well I have to get it now, because Paper Mario is in my top three game series. It'll be worth it. I wasn't planning before, but now, I feel obligated because of that one game.

Jolene
June 15th, 2010, 12:35 PM
There's something I really don't like about it.

It's made by Nintendo. That's your problem, right?

I want the new Nintendogs game and Paper Mario as well because Paper Mario has always been like a pop-up book so it would be good in 3D. I don't think that Kid Icarus looks very good though I saw the trailer and it is nothing like the original Kid Icarus.

The original Kid Icarus looked like this.

I doubt anyone would approve of that. ;] And they were using Pit's Brawl design. It looks good on him. "Eager" describes it fairly well. As far as actual gameplay goes, my only worry is that it'll end up playing kinda like that one Star Fox.

Okay I think it looks fun but it's like a completely different type of game to the original. I think it's good that they brought the series back though. Maybe they brought it back because a lot of people found out about Kid Icarus because of Super Smash Bros. That's how I found out about it, and then I downloaded it on the Virtual Console!

June 15th, 2010, 01:21 PM
I'm definitely getting the blue one. I like the new analogue stick and addition of a home button, but I think the new locations of the Start/Select buttons could be slightly annoying. Also the fact they've flipped the side that the power button is on will probably annoy me to begin with, but that's just cause I'm used to DSi.

It had me at Ocarina of Time remake.

Corvus of the Black Night
June 15th, 2010, 01:33 PM
I won't be getting a 3DS, just because 3D burns my eyes.

Kid Icarus though... I'm a huge KI fan so I had a huge fangasm when I saw those pretty screens. I'm interested to see how the gameplay comes out - I doubt it'll be anything like the original Kid Icarus but they might implement certain elements to make it more interesting.

Monoeyes o.o

Despite not being fully related to the 3DS, Golden Sun: Dark Dawn looks awesome too. I can't wait to get my hands on these games.

You can turn the 3D off it you don't want it.

I'm so ****ing excited, Kid Icarus? Ocarina of Time? Snake Eater!? AAAAAHHHHH

Captain Fabio
June 15th, 2010, 02:15 PM
I am really interested in getting my hands on it somewhere to see what it is like.
They are bigging it up to be amazing, so I have to see it for myself before I can really comment on it.

I would prefer it to be the size of the XL though, as I doubt I could go back to that size, since I own a XL.

Heart's Soul
June 15th, 2010, 02:19 PM
Possibly two Kingdom Hearts games make my friend happy.
Possibly two Final Fantasy games make me happy.

We then realized that the games are spin-offs.

Anyway, Ura Zelda 3DS is NOT known. This may be a tech demo, we may not get this game. Nintendo said nothing about it, but Star Fox 64 3D is that both me and my friend want. Besides, 70 games are being made right now, who DOESN'T WANT THAT?

Sorry, Mother is NOT on the list. It's around the size of a DSi, maybe XL.

Jolene
June 15th, 2010, 02:20 PM
It won't be the size of an XL. Those were made for people with bad eyesight.

I saw the E3 announcement... live.

Im slightly confused is this going to be a completely new console with no ties ins to the original ds or is it going to be ANOTHER extra ds.

I dont mean to spoil the party but its getting out of hand. And people are buying them all. Its kinda scary how much people will spend on games/consoles.

While I understand it may be some peoples passion and love. Alot of casual gamers will pick it up and it will begin to collect dust. Its rather sickening

All my uncles aunts friends etc. buy the newest version all the time. I still have my phat ds. I love it but I dont see the reason of buying an upgraded ds if this one can do all the same things albeit a few.

Please don't flame me I'm entitled to my opinion and so are you. So I would love to hear the other side of the arguement.

Well, the other side of the argument is that this is (going to be) a new system with it's own games. It'll still play DS cards, but it's not just a DS.
If somebody buys a system and doesn't play it, that's their business.

Pokémon Ranger ✩ Moriarty
June 15th, 2010, 02:52 PM

Well, aside the 3D aspect, the 3DS also offers massively improved graphics. And the titles that are coming out for it all look very interesting. So if you're not into 3D (like me) you still have several incentives there.

You're a star! Games that interest me:

Etrian Odyssey, Shin Megami Tensei, Resident Evil: Revelations, Professor Layton, Animal Crossing, Kid Icarus, Nintendogs & Cats, Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, Batman franchise (please be a non-Lego game that doesn't suck!) and Assassin's Creed.

There you are, Corvidae. That's plenty of reasons, even with the 3D dubiousness. :D

It's DS in name only - Dual Screen. Everything else has been upgraded and improved, the 3D functionality has been added, and 3DS games won't be able to work on a normal DS or DSi console. So it's pretty much what the GameBoy Advance was to th GameBoy/GBC. And pretty much every Nintendo fan owned a GameBoy Advance, despite it still being called GameBoy.

Corvus of the Black Night
June 15th, 2010, 03:45 PM
Aw, damn, I feel so stupid now. The 3DS is backwards compatible with other DS games, not the games themselves >_>

I'll NEED to get a 3DS now. Ah well. The list of titles already is a good reason to pick it up.

Yes. >:) It would be amazing. I really hope they do this, seeing that other games are making a comeback. Didn't I see Star Fox 64 remake? Doin' a barrel roll for that one, I tell ya.

Etrian Odyssey, Shin Megami Tensei, Resident Evil: Revelations, Professor Layton, Animal Crossing, Kid Icarus, Nintendogs & Cats, Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, Batman franchise (please be a non-Lego game that doesn't suck!) and Assassin's Creed.

Ohh, this thing has grabbed my heart again! OoT remake and a Kingdom Hearts game? I feel like a 10 year old girl swooning over Justin Beiber!

It's made by Nintendo. That's your problem, right?

As much as I hate Nintendo for sucking the **** of the casual gamer so hard that otherwise mediocre games are treated as gems just because they're violent(see: Madworld), I will be honest and say that they made one of the best handheld systems. I don't know why I hate this. Maybe it's the fact that it took Nintendo 6 years to think of putting an analog stick and crappy novelty 3D on their DS. Maybe they had less time since they were obviously too busy working redesigning the DS instead of making a successor.

Also, I'm wondering what the hell the home button is for. The DSi had it so you could just lightly press the power button and you would go to the main screen. Unless they plan on making "home" something completely different, they could've just done that.

It won't be the size of an XL. Those were made for people with bad eyesight.

I'm pretty sure the DSiXL was made to appease the older audiences above all else.

I have a feeling I'll be camping out for this one. I camped outside the store for the Wii, and this just looks a thousands times better. The only problem I have with the 3DS is that it has such a glossy finish. I had hoped that had gone out of style with the DS Lite. :/

June 15th, 2010, 07:51 PM
YES! I was just thinking that they need to make another Paper Mario with the old formula, with turn-based battles and such. And I hope the Ocarina of Time remake is true.....

As for the 3DS itself, I like the fact that it has an analog stick, but I'm not too sure on the placement of the power on/off button. It's not as bad as the one on the OG DS, but it seems to easy to press if you are getting to into a game. Maybe I'm wrong, but there's nothing wrong with making it a bit smaller.

Eпvy
June 15th, 2010, 08:46 PM
An Animal Crossing that looks like they actually got off of the couch to make, an Paper Mario in the style of the first two fantastic Paper Mario titles, an Ocarina Of Time remake signifying that handheld Zelda's are being taken to the next level. (in other words no more/less top-down style Zelda's)

So impressive it's mind-blowing! (and it made me squeal. xD)

Also excited for the Kingdom Hearts game, because yeah I like that series. ^_^

I might have to check out the Kid Icarus game as well. Not at the top of my list, though. However, it must be noted that it was a huge shock to me. I did not think that Project Sora was Kid Icarus for even a second.

Mario Kart 3DS will be a must-buy, but it's not really showing anything too impressive to me. Very likely as it should be, though. Just make great tracks again and tone down the items and it will be another great Mario Kart.

But that list is amazing. I knew the 3ds was going to be awesome, just cause its a next gen nintendo handheld, but i never would have thought nintendo was going to take over e3. By the look and sound of the resi evil, capcom made a switch from psp to 3ds. Although i never thought much of 3d, thinking about all those awesome games in it is awesome!

Maybe we should just lock this thread and make a sticky called the "Nintendo 3DS Discussion" (if fonts work, then this is it!) Anyway, new question-

What games do you want to buy when the 3DS comes out?

For me it's the following-
Ocarina of Time 3D
Star Fox 64 3D
Paper Mario 3DS
Mario Kart 3DS
Kid Icarus: Uprising (maybe)

Also, there are talks about SSB for the 3DS.

The 3DS interests me but... idk, I love 3D in the theatres and my family has agreed that as soon as an (affordable) TV comes out that can do 3D without the glasses, we'll be buying one, but I'm not overly pumped for the 3DS. :/ I'm not even sure why.

I am already looking forward to the games on it. Specifically the new Paper Mario omg. Back to its turn-based roots (after the abomination that was SPM) and eeeeee. :> Guess I'm also looking forward to the Kingdom Hearts game but since it shows KH1 Sora & Riku, I'm having issues with where it fits into canon and thus have no confidence that it's not going to be a useless spinoff for the sake of printing money. :(

It's just I hold the opinion of someone who seems down-to-earth and real to higher regard than of some professional tech blogger who is more interested in the specs and technical side of things rather than the overall playability of it.

I want to see some anime-style RPG's. Once I do, and they're exclusive to 3DS, then I'll consider picking it up.

But there's no point in buying a game device, no matter how impressive the specs are (and they seem quite impressive) if none of the games on it capture my interest.

3DS is still something I'm keeping my eye on, though...

When he stated that you had to go cross-eyed for the 3D effect, he lost all credibility. While true, it's effectiveness is different for different people, stating something like that as fact for everybody instantly says that he knows very little about what he is talking about, especially when that's not how the tech works at all (read: directing an image into each eye). Plus, although on a different note, he's a vlogger on YouTube. What makes him more down to earth than any tech blogger like Joshua Topolsky? These tech bloggers aren't paid for praising a company when they go to an event like E3, they are just paid to go and report on what they see. They will throw their opinions into their articles, sure, but that's it.

I'm not one to deny someone their opinion, but when some things are wrong, it holds no water to me.

As for the design of the console, I like it. The only thing I really don't like is the black bezel around the 3D screen. It's probably meant to keep your attention up to the 3D screen and prevent you from losing track of sight on your game, but it's kind of ugly. Only a small nitpick, though, as I do like the rest of the aesthetics. The headphone port in the middle of the console is really nifty, though.

The 3D is a little bit of a concern for me, as I have ptosis and some other eye conditions that usually prevent me from seeing 3D stuff correctly, but if it works, then I'm good to go. Otherwise, oh well, I'm not crying a river over something that can be turned off.

The game lineup so far, though, looks great, even for a console that hasn't launched yet. No wonder why the DS lost it's stream of good games last year. For launch, I'll probably end up getting (if available, of course), Mario Kart, Animal Crossing, and Paper Mario.

But if you get one, which color would you choose?
-I'm going with gray.

I have a feeling I'll be camping out for this one. I camped outside the store for the Wii, and this just looks a thousands times better. The only problem I have with the 3DS is that it has such a glossy finish. I had hoped that had gone out of style with the DS Lite. :/

Well it looks to me as if the only part that's glossy is the top half of the inside, not the whole thing.

Guess I'm also looking forward to the Kingdom Hearts game but since it shows KH1 Sora & Riku, I'm having issues with where it fits into canon and thus have no confidence that it's not going to be a useless spinoff for the sake of printing money. :(

Well it's already canon because it's simply a remake of a Japan only game, so that won't be a problem. If you are wondering, it takes place after KHII. As for the useless spin-off, I think it's along the lines of what Re: Chains of Memories was to Chains of Memories, basically a streamlined, graphically improved version.

I'll wait for the next revi...Aww, nah, I'll just get this model, and all the other models after that, like I always do! And the games to launch are well, awesome!

At first I really didn't like the design of the 3DS, but within, like... an hour, this is pretty much what was running through my mind. I mean, the games alone are incentive enough to want this system. And the blue 3DS!!! It's so beautiful... it looks like candy. I really just want to lie down with it and cuddle. xD

Also, I've had every version of the DS so far, except the XL. I am a proud DS fangirl. 8Dv

This here. Or something like it. They're keeping the camera on the inside from the DSi, so it doesn't seem to be too much of a stretch. It would be a very welcome addition, judging from what I hear about the sweetspot thing.

I think I'll be building up an extra couple hundred dollars for whenever it does come out. Does anybody know when that is yet?

They haven't announced a price range yet, have they? I imagine it'll be around the $200 mark. Possibly more, since the DSi XL still retails for $200 and why they wouldn't go above and beyond that with brand new hardware doesn't make sense. Except that if you go above $200, you get into the very expensive territory which Nintendo has, for obvious reasons, been shying away from in recent years. :( I hope the 3DS won't break my wallet too bad.

You're thinking of Re:Coded and that game is just a regular DS game--not 3DS. The 3DS game they have screenshots of is completely different from Re:Coded. I'm excited for Coded (I can finally play it!) but very, very suspicious of this other game. But that's kind of off-topic. XD;

When it comes to Nintendogs + cats, I'm hoping for more improvements rather than worrying about the mic. It does take them a while to respond to the mic commands. Anyway, I'm hoping for a major improvement on this. Nintendogs was great, don't get me wrong, but so many things could have been fixed. I had a list back when I constantly played, but it's slipped my mind now. I haven't played in at least two years. Perhaps a better house, the ability to access more rooms in the house, have more dogs, have the dogs grow so that they can be bred, but not grow old enough to die. And this doesn't have to be done the naughty way, either. They could do something similar to breeding cows in Harvest Moon. Good ole Miracle Potion, anyone?

JakeyBoy
June 18th, 2010, 08:56 AM
I probably won't bother trying the Peach thing, I ruined it by overdoing it in Brawl. Them screenshots were always a great feature...

And yes, it does have a mic, though I forget where, lemme check the specs again. I never used it much in Nintendogs myself. Probaby won't get it a second time, because after a while it stopped being fun for me. But I'd totally reccomend it to anyone who didn't try it first time around and without a real dog.

EDIT: The specs don't say where, but there is definitely an "embedded microphone".

I heard that they were making it for ds, but post ponded it for technical difficulties, or something (correct me if im wrong). From that i think there is a chance for it to come to 3ds. Also does anybody remember Ninokuni, the ghibli/level 5 ds game thats meant to come out this year? I heard that it is also going to be on "another console", making me think that it will also be on the 3ds. It would make sense seeing as they were trying to hide what console it would be on.

It is awesome. Though, I will get it maybe next year, or whenever the third version of Black and White is released. The reason for this that all 3DS games are crappy for me except for Zelda (which isn't really worth it; I can play Skyward Sword on my Wii if it is released). Since it is that way, I guess I'll wait until Pokémon games are 3DS enhanced (which I think will happen due to the TWL on Black and White) or 3DS exclusive. Until then, I'll enjoy a regular DS, please.

Inspiration!

Augmented-reality Pokemon battles: You have a marker which designates the center of the field. Depending on the number of participating Pokemon, the spawn point for each Pokemon shifts in relation to the marker, allowing for triple battles. The whole thing is observed through the 3DS 3D camera, and anyone in camera mode off to the side or what-have-you can observe it as well- the systems operating the games could send out a signal to the surrounding devices. Size for many Pokemon would have to be scaled down, naturally, but they could get the smaller-to-medium sized ones accurate to the Pokedex. Add a couple (hundred) attack animations, some special effects (Spacial Rend could effect the background or something), badda-bing badda-boom. To render everything, it may require it's own game, however. Therein lies the icky part.

Half the pixels are allocated to each eye. The barrier tilts some to the left, and some to the right. You just have to stay in range, otherwise it won't look right.

Lol, if remakes and Mario are all it takes too woo you, then Nintendo basically won every E3 conference since those are the only good things they're coming out with these days.

Please direct your attention to Heart Gold and Soul Silver. Now repeat after me. Remakes. Are. Awesome.

Also, Paper Mario is an RPG deserving of your respect, soldier. Just the same that the new Mario Kart is a racer deserving of your respect.

Also, there's a new freaking Animal Crossing. ANIMAL CROSSING I TELL YOU!!! /explode

On top of all that there's a new Kingdom Hearts, The Sims 3, a new Professor Layton, A NEW CHOCOBO RACING GAME, new Kid Icarus, a new Resident Evil, GOLDEN FREAKING SUN...

Do you have any idea how epic win the lineup is?! >x<

Yeah... he had his own game for GameBoy. Why doesn't anyone else know that?

Although, if Nintendo created Virtual Console for the 3DS, add in 3 games from every system in there! (And 3 good games out of 4 for the CD-i, Hotel Mario and the LoZ 2 wannabes, save Zelda's Adventure for April Fools)

Oh, and 3DS games will not, I repeat, WILL NOT work on the DS because the chip is slightly different shaped. It has a little edge which will not allow these games to work on the earlier DS models. Sort of how GB games will not work on the DS, there's a small edge in the Slot-2 slot that's slightly different shaped than the GB cartridges. Will work fine with GBA games as they do not have that small indent. Good call, Nintendo.

Please direct your attention to Heart Gold and Soul Silver. Now repeat after me. Remakes. Are. Awesome.
Heartgold and Soulsilver are incredibly boring. Why remake a game if you forget to bring the fun?

Also, Paper Mario is an RPG deserving of your respect, soldier. Just the same that the new Mario Kart is a racer deserving of your respect.

Also, there's a new freaking Animal Crossing. ANIMAL CROSSING I TELL YOU!!! /explode

On top of all that there's a new Kingdom Hearts, The Sims 3, a new Professor Layton, A NEW CHOCOBO RACING GAME, new Kid Icarus, a new Resident Evil, GOLDEN FREAKING SUN...
Kingdom Hearts doesn't matter to me, The Sims games suck, never played Animal Crossing or Paper Mario, Chocobo Racing will most likely suck, I never cared about Kid Icarus, Resident Evil is incredibly overrated, and Golden Sun is for the DS. It would definitely be a system seller if it was released on the 3DS.

HGSS was really well done, do you hate games that were meant to come back?

Agreed on KH, Sims might probably fail like previous, AC is boring, Paper Mario is tediuous (but really funny), Chocobo Racing (really?), Kid Icarus is what I'd want, RE is horrific, Golden Sun is for DS. But it'll work on the 3DS.

it's not the developers fault that you hate good games.
you also have to remember that these games are almost launch titles, if not early titles. the ds has lasted for 6 years and it seems that with each generation of game consoles, they last longer. so theres still a big opportunity for developers to make a game you like, if you have any.

It was well done, I'll give it that, but Gamefreak just forgot to add the secret ingredient; FUN. And no, it isn't because I'm getting older, because I can actually play through Platinum without being as bored as I am in Heartgold.

Kid Icarus looks obnoxious.
it's not the developers fault that you hate good games.

I'm sorry, what? It's not my fault that they fail to hold my attention. I don't hate Uncharted because Naughty Dog remembers to bring more than story and the great dialogue, they also bring the fun, something that Heartgold is severely lacking.

Tell you what Nintendo, you want me to buy the 3DS? Sequel to The World Ends With You kthnxbai.

TWEWY sequel would be fun, but how would you do that? Another Game set in Shibuya? Otherwise, it's implied that they have to do away with the pins (different places have different rules), and probably the art style. Not to mention that it was meant to take advantage of the DS' features, so how would you actually work the 3D into a game? The gyroscope and accelerometer(?) seem like possibilities in any case. TWEWY seemed to be more of a one-shot to me. Perhaps a one-per-system (Like SSB) nonlinear sequel with cameos (Angel!Neku). I don't think I could take more than that.

If I heard right (well, I don't really know) TWEWY would never get a sequel. Not saying that it won't, this is just my speculation.

SSB3DS would be awesome, though. If it had more characters and if Square Enix wasn't such a stuck up prick, then we'd get Sephiroth in Brawl. As a boss. The Final Boss. And Geno for the fanboys.

The 3D is already a gimmicky effect, I think if an actual sequel were to be ported to the 3DS it would be almost purely for the memory it can hold.

Personally, I don't really know how a game like TWEWY could have a sequel(perhaps there could be a different game played with different rules in a…you guessed it, a different location), but it would probably be awesome if they, by some divine inspiration, got Tim Schafer to work on it. (b'-')b

What if the Game Card was an expanded microSD/SDHC/SDXC card? Honestly, E3 didn't have Game Cards and when someone noticed, Nintendo said "both are possible" to the idea of SD capacity or internal storage.

do you think a whole game company makes a game for a single man's idea of fun? majority of the millions of people who have played hgss have thoroughly enjoyed it and they wouldnt have enjoyed it if they didn't find it fun. i'm saying that the developers have succeeded in the fact that they created a game which alot of people find fun. but what people find fun varies from one person to another, so obviouslly somebody is going to find hgss boring. That goes the same way with uncharted, it's a good game and the majority of people enjoy it, but you are going to find some people who don't like it.
A game company can't put fun into a game that everybody is going to enjoy so they would try and make sure that the people that will find the game most fun, as fun as possible for them. unfortunatelly your not one of those people in the case of hgss, meaning it's your own problem that you don't find it fun.
hope that makes sense, my english ain't that good. :P
on topic, i'm hoping for a mother 4 on the 3ds.

Because that would be a very neat feature.

The DSi did have a home button though. You just tapped the power button to take you to the main screen. Personally I like that more than a button just for taking you home.

how about we just forget about this conversation, for the benefit of both of us?

i was thinking the other day, now that there is 4 times as much space compared to the ds, wouldn't it be the perfect time to release the pokemon first 4 regions game?
i mean isshu is supposedly far away from the rest of the regions which suggests that the first 4 regions are part of some continent like thing. so those 4 could work well as game all together.

Well, reading Game Informer, we're supposed to be getting....*flips to page*..Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time(remake), a new Mario Kart, Star Fox 64(remake), Resident Evil, Kid Icarus, and a Street Fighter. Granted, not all are confirmed, but based on those alone I WANT IT. But then it probably will cost somewhere around $250-$300....

As far as the idea for the 4 region Pokemon game...not yet. HGSS and FRLG were to recent, not to mention there's little doubt for RSEmakes at some point. Maybe in Generation VII(because I'm sure Pokemon'll go that far)we can have the first 4 in one game. But not now.

Actually, all of those are confirmed. All of them. (I'm more interested in Kid Icarus, Mario Kart, and the SF64)

However, Pokemon is ready to end after Generation VI, which will probably be at the end of the rule of the 3DS. Meaning, that the 3DS may be Pokemon's last console and we're probably getting a 5-region game (forgot Sevii Islands) by the end of the 3DS lifetime. But, by then, I'd have a flashcard.

Even if the new regions die before the end of the 3DS, Pokemon it self won't. It makes too much money for them to just throw it away..Spin-Offs and Cameos galore!.
