With the whole new glasses free 3D tech (at least for a gaming console) and everyone taking advantage of it, do you think the 3DS will be like the N64 was with mostly all 3D games or do you think some devs will make some nice looking 2D (as in... non-polygonal... you know) games too? We're already seeing some games (like one of the best 2D sidescrollers ever, Cave Story) being remade in 3D for the console. But with the advanced tech I know there could be amazing "flat" games too, if they decide to do some.

I also love me some artistic style games

Well, Ninty did say that developers do have the option to just not have 3D in their games.

They probably would have some games that are just 2D. Though every creator would probably take advantage of the 3D.

Just to clarify here, I mean 2D as in games like ALttP, Muramasa, SMB, Pixeljunk Shooter and the like, not just the depthy stuff.

Most definitely. I hope they make many games in those genres/styles. Miyamoto already said there's a New Super Mario Bros. being made for the system. The 3D effect would work well for new games in the Shantae, Wario Land/World, Contra, and Castlevania series. Shantae is the perfect side-scroller to demonstrate the system's 3D effect, because you already jump between the foreground and background in those games.

I'd like to see Mario and Luigi RPG 4, if that counts as sprites.
But when you meant 2D pixel sprites, do you mean to say that the sprites could have depth using the 3D effect? Similiar to Super Mario Clash for the Virtual Boy?

@abgar: sadly I wasn't asking about that handheld.

@Doma: Thank you, that's the kinda reply I was hoping for. I feel the same way which is why I started this thread.

@supernin10do: Oh please no, don't mix them D:

Think I heard that they were planning on bringing Muramasa (however you spell it, lol) to the 3DS.

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Yuuki...from School Rumble...
Yet Another Update: Also Amber and Xiao Pai from Rune Factory 4.

Sorry if you misunderstood me.
What i tied to say in short words is, if the PSP (which i consider a handheld powerful enough to generate good 3D graphics) has 2D pixel games, then the 3DS may be getting some too.

Oh look! A Morphloggery.
Oh! eShop Gurus.

Oh no, I understood you, don't get me wrong. I'm just saying that in the same way the PS1 had Castlevania: SoTN while the N64 had that 3D castlevania crap, there's a chance the same may happen here.

Of course I guess there were a couple DS games that didn't use the stylus, and I thought the same thing about that back then...

Like square enix and it's tendency to remake games in 3D for the DS and 2D for the PSP :P
I think 2D sprites can look very good with 3D applied to them too.

But i think there must be atleast one company wanting to make a 2D game for the 3DS right now, even if only for 3DSware.

I don't see why not. I can already see another Kirby's Epic Yarn, Wario Land Shake or Muramasa on the 3DS. Why not? Those games looked beautiful! They have already shown a 3DS Paper Mario working which is KINDA 2D so I don't see why devs wouldn't be making some sprite based games on the 3DS.

You can already hear Nintendo working on a 2D sprite based game on the 3DS with the backdrop being pushed well into the screen.

Thats why I most of the time refer to games with 3D modeling as 3D style because 2D games to me are side scrollers, 8-Bit, 16-bit and similar stuff.[Though there are games smash bros]
