@Crimzonlogic
Wouldn't be good for develops to only support the New 3DS, since there are so many of the "old" 3DS out in the wild. Most likely you'll still be seeing most games developed for the "old" 3DS hardware, while certain more "advanced" games like Xenoblade that take advantage of the faster CPU will come out just once in a while.

Wish they would change the name.
Maybe something like 3DS Duo.
Then we could abbreviate it to 3DSD, instead of trying to figure out what the heck to call these new systems.

EDIT: Heck, how about 3DS Plus? Then consumers will understand that there's some kind of difference between it and the original.

If they come over, I hope Gamestop or Best Buy has a trade-in bonus. I got myself a sea green 2DS a couple months ago as a companion to my main 3DS (so I play better in bed), but since there's nothing installed on it I'll have no problem trading it in.

Surprised? How so? Didn't all three Operation Rainfall games get steelbooks in Europe since Nintendo published those games over there?
It'll only be a surprise if they were doing this in freaking Murica.

EDIT: "but this is the first instance of using this type sought-after case as an incentive to splash a little more cash."
No it ain't.

Better make it to Wii U. Makes no sense for it not to.
Of course they'll have to scale down the graphics, since I'm sure Wii U is weaker than modern arcade machines, but doesn't matter as long as it makes it.

If this means the leaks are real, why are Duck Hunt Dog, Dr. Mario, and Dark Pit characters, but not Snake? And why the heck is Shulk at the bottom with the 3rd party characters? He should be right next to Lucina.

Again, I'll stay hopeful to an extent, but I won't bet on that kind of support coming any time soon. Of course, I could be proven wrong at TGS, but it's been almost 2 years now.
And that One Piece game is a licensed anime game that's also on 3 other platforms; not exactly what I'm looking for, but I guess it's sort of a start.
Guess it's a good thing I have a Vita...

I want to be hopeful, but I don't know.
Wii U is in a similar situation to Vita in Japan, yet Vita has a treasure trove of niche goodies compared to Wii U and even 3DS (maybe because it's a portable?).
But also, PS4 has been selling rather poorly in Japan yet there are already some niche JRPGs coming to it like Neptunia Victory 2 and Omega Quintet.

One thing I gotta ask about the Wii U:
The heck be them niche JRPGs and other Japanese games NOT associated with Nintendo?
So far it seems like Japanese developers are ignoring Wii U.
Even 3DS got some niche stuff.

Only reason it would brick would be if you make a horrible mistake on your end or try to flash an image file that isn't confirmed to be fully stable.
Or if Nintendo decides to exercise their tyrannical powers to remotely brick your 3DS while having everyone at Nintendo headquarters put on a Bowser mask.

Removes region lock? HECK YES!
Wish that someone could've made a finished one for DSi back in the day (and even now!) with the region-lock removal. Then I could've imported Fire Emblem Heroes of Light and Shadow and play it on a DSi, instead of having to consider buying a DS Lite just to play that game.

@Reverandjames
Do make sure to pick up the virtual console one some time. Awakening works better as a portal for beginners, but it's also mostly just a fanservice game (not as in perverted fan service).
Blazing Sword (the one now on the Virtual Console) is much better as a Fire Emblem game than Awakening. For one thing it has much more charm to it.

@AshFoxX
Don't think DSi games are eligible to be discounted. Would be nice if Nintendo could just add NNID to DSi and Wii and update their shop channels to the eShop. Then in 20 years when Nintendo finally has a "modern" account system, we'll be able to download DSi games that we buy on later handhelds on our DSis. Cuz by then it'll count as retro gaming.
Sadly, I'm guessing the DSi and Wii OS are way too archaic for something like that. It's not like Android, where even ultra old versions of Android can use the most recent store front. Then again that's probably because the Play Store is probably an updated and renamed version of the old Android Marketplace while eShop is probably developed completely separately from the DSi and Wii Shops and not based on their code at all.....sigh

Anyway, does anyone know for sure whether or not it is possible at all to do discounts on DSi games?

AVahne commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS File Size i...:

@Dipper723
If Monolith Soft were to ever make a Xenoblade-like game for 3DS with the same amount of content and length, then maybe.
I think the ROM size for Xenoblade on Wii was a little over 6 GB.
Then again Brawl used a dual layer disc, too, yet this new Smash Bros. is around 2 GB on 3DS.
But then again again, a 3DS game would have smaller asset file sizes due to the much smaller screen resolution. I think they're using less music as well for 3DS, and I'm guessing the 3DS Smash Bros. won't have as much content overall as Brawl, much less the Wii U version.
Anyway now I'm really hoping we get an open world 3DS Action JRPG from Monolith Soft. I think the closest we'll get for now is Final Fantasy Explorers.

AVahne commented on Super Smash Bros. Seizes Gamescom Most Wanted ...:

Eh, I'll probably get it because my siblings have been pestering me and since I have some vague interest. I'm still mostly disappointed by the lack of impact this game is having on me compared to past games. Instead of being an exciting new entry, so far it feels like more of the same...and not in a good way.
Anyway I'll still get it since it's like a Nintendo tradition, however it'll depend on if I have any money left after getting Neptunia Re;birth 1 for Vita, Hyrule Warriors for Wii U, and Omega Ruby for 3DS. And then there's some other Vita games I've been wanting like Akiba's Trip.

AVahne commented on Nintendo Unleashes An Awesome Trailer Showing ...:

Great trailer, but....wow... I'm already of the opinion that Smash Bros. Wii U graphics look like crap, but when shown together with all these other 3D Wii U exclusives, the low quality of the visuals stands out even more. Guess that's what happens when you let Bamco develop a Nintendo game these days.
