Here here. Things like Streetpass and 3D prove (for me) that Nintendo continues to deserve a place in the hardware market. Hardware is a big part of a game's identity and something precious would be lost if Nintendo were to defer to another maker's platform for their games. People that only see Nintendo for their franchise brand names and/or raw performance specs are missing the point entirely. Long live the 3DS and future Nintendo handhelds.

Love it, Ocarina 3D was great as well and new 3DS should be even easier with the better 3D. I suppose we'll see Splatoon style Gamepad aiming in the new Wii U Zelda, should be great. How did WWHD handle aiming? Could you aim with the Gamepad, play with the remote pointer or was simple analog stick aiming?

@k8sMum The handheld market is definitely stronger than the Wii U, however relatively speaking to the GB, DS heydays, it's not doing so hot. I more meant that since overall Nintendo's business is not as strong as it was, that they're in less position to take risks, and presumably they saw some risk in selling both size New 3DS units in the US.

I just think the US handheld gaming market's not that healthy and it was deemed too risky to launch both sizes in the US at this time. It's not like Nintendo is setting the world on fire at the moment. I'm sure if the XL is successful, they'll at least consider bringing the small one out. Honestly, with all the great games available these days, just buy a few more games instead and enjoy!

Not like there's a choice in NA, but I'm going "Big Red", and will get a Hori TPU cover to mitigate the gloss finish. The small one is awesome, but those plates would be a money pit for me. Still, if they bring it to the US or I eventually cave to a Japanese unit, I'd maybe get a small one eventually.

Enjoyed this series back on PS1, but never got around to picking up the 3DS one... looks like the wait paid off!

Along these lines, it'd be cool to see Namco also create an enhanced Ridge Racer 3D or sequel, maybe at 60fps with Amiibo support for car skins and online play/leaderboards? I ask too much.

The only thing that could make me double dip is if one can somehow transfer a save file from the Wii game. It'd be great to start a new game+ on the 3DS version someday, but I don't think I'd start again from scratch on a such a massive game.

TruenoGT commented on Poll: Which New Nintendo 3DS Will You be Buying?:

Household has 2 red XLs and a MM unit on order (one of these would have been a smaller, white unit if available). Will probably end up cancelling either the MM or 1 of the red XL pre-orders closer to launch as we only need two.

TruenoGT commented on Nintendo Download: 15th January (North America):

It'd be fun to see a poll for the game(s) people are most annoyed aren't released yet in each region. e.g. Metroid Zero Mission, DKC Trilogy, GBA Castlevanias, etc. This could consolidate all the complaining into one convenient thread. :)

I think it has to do with managing retail space/stock for the faceplates and extra models more than anything. Go into a Best Buy sometime and see the shrunken ghetto that is the Nintendo area relative to Sony and Microsoft. If Nintendo had a better relationship with Amazon (still can't believe that situation), they could have a better opportunity to sell online which would make stock management much easier.

TruenoGT commented on Wii Disc Software Heading to the Wii U eShop:

Most looking forward to hopefully Kirby's Return to Dreamland coming over. Missed it's brief retail run and now it's stupid expensive to get even used. Also seems to me that Gamecube could be possible now via this method (playable via Wii mode), hopefully so and they take advantage of it.

The hybrid name echoes two great racers, will be interesting to see if it lives up to either. I've actually been thinking of tracking down a Super Off Road SNES cart, but maybe I'll hold off to see how this turns out. Sample screens look pretty cool!

TruenoGT commented on Rumour: Red New Nintendo 3DS XL With 13th Febr...:

Man, that red is cool, but I've got a red XL and an OG black 3DS, so I'm hoping for some other options besides red and black. A white (or purple!) XL would be perfect, but I'm realistic. I'd be very surprised if there's more than two colors for each size (assuming we get the smaller one).

I'd like to know if there's going to be more than just a few 3DS games this year. Undoubtedly, I'll buy a new 3DS to play my existing games in great new way, but the release calendar for 2015 seems so thin for 3DS, I can't help but be concerned with the investment. A couple of remakes (Xenoblade, MM3D) and a few new titles (Steam, MH4, Etrian Mystery Dungeon) is not going to cut it. It would also be great to see some more concrete details on the future of Virtual Console in any regard.

Had one via pre-order hoping for GameCube VC or other compatibility, but no dice so I sold it. Didn't get Smash, so I had no use for it. Hoping that Nintendo extends the usage of the adapter and makes more, at which time I'll probably get it again.

It's got style, but the gameplay isn't grabbing me yet. I compare the racing segments to something like Rock 'n Roll Racing or even RC Pro Am and it just looks somewhat dull or simplistic to play in comparison, especially in 2015. That boss fight GIF has got my attention however.

Those were the days, miss playing many of those games in the arcade. Looking back, I'd say some of my most played arcade games were SF2 Turbo, Tekken Tag, MK2, Samurai Showdown 2, Ridge Racer 2, Daytona USA, TMNT and Galaga.

@BooJoh Probably just trying to get attention to their skills without a real intention of actually finishing it. Look how much attention this project will get just by aping a popular game/franchise (a lot more than working on an original project for sure). Plenty of people will check it out and maybe one or more of them will give him work.

@sillygostly Oh man, don't get my hopes up. They could do HUD-less 3D on the top screen and HUD, map and/or direct weapon selection on the bottom screen. How far have western devs gone away since the GBA days? The 3DS would be perfect for DOOM, native screen res even matches the original release. Between this and an equally not-gonna-happen Wii Remote/nunchuck controlled Quake trilogy on Wii U, I'd be in heaven.

Huh, hadn't heard this before. Doom 64 was an awesome Doom game, completely original and really suited the hardware. Always wanted to play it's campaign co-op, maybe I'll give the PC total conversion a run one of these days.

This is awesome, hope to see other NES zapper games as well. Thanks to clever unofficial methods, I've been able to enjoy my old Super Scope collection on a modern TV with the Wii remote and it works extremely well. Many of those games seem destined for the Wii remote and I'm surprised we haven't seen more new games ala Yoshi Safari and Battle Clash for Wii or Wii U.

After falling in love with Azure Striker Gunvolt, I went on a Megaman buying spree last week getting the DS Zero collection, and the PS2 X and MM collections. I'm totally set on Megaman games! Still, might snag a GB game or two... :)

Yes, it would be awesome if this and eventually the SNES games came to the VC. SO expensive on eBay. I have the original as part of a Taito arcade compilation and played the first SNES game on rental many years ago. So cute and very fun.

Even if you'd still have to go to Wii mode to play them, it would great if Nintendo could at least sell WiiWare games in the eShop. There's a lot of great games on the service that could use the exposure, and it's not like Wii U is overflowing with games at the moment.
