A thought occurred to me. Is this the end of 2D handheld gaming? There's still downloadable content I suppose (well, there's always 2.5 D).


Probably, yeah. But I don't see any problems with 2.5D - it's the same 2D gameplay we all love except it looks better.

It's not the end of 2D because the 3D effect is optional. The 3DS will come with an analog slider that controls the depth of the 3D. Sliding it all the way down is like turning the 3D effect off and you can enjoy the games as you normally would.

I think Rize was talking about 2D gaming in general (as in, games with 2 dimensions of movement available)

This is the headtracking we've been looking for.

I was thinking that earlier, but then I heard that the 3D effect only looks good if you look at the screen from the right angle (the "sweet spot" that XMark mentioned earlier), which I guess is to be expected, but it kinda ruins the premise of headtracking.

Though with the camera and motion controls, you could probably still have headtracking games that are not in 3D, which in turn would look 3D because of the headtracking giving off the effect by itself.

Hopefully those specific games will tell you to turn your 3D Slider all the way down/off, otherwise you'll get a headache from looking at a blurry screen.

I still wouldn't mind that, though! :)

I'm glad I didn't jump on a new DS with the DSXL or whatever, because this should prove to be awesome.

If they redo the voices for Star Fox 64, I'll be really disappointed.
The original has so many legendary voice samples.

Holy crap, agreed. I don't care what they tamper with, just as long as the level designs and the voice acting stays the same!!!

I was -this close- to buying a Pink DS Lite for, like, three years in a row. It never happened, and I'm so glad too now. :)

I can't complain about my DS Lite. For as many problems people have said they have had with them, mine has been nigh on indestructible. I've dropped it on pavement a couple times and it still works great. The 3DS will be a good upgrade though.

Glad I only have a phat as well. Never felt compelled to upgrade...til now. Count me in as a believer. This should be great.

-Confirmed THE SAME SHIT WE'VE BEEN SEEING FOR YEARS UPON YEARS:-
Kid Icarus: Uprising
Mario Kart 3DS
Animal Crossing 3DS
StarFox 64 3DS
Paper Mario 3DS
Resident Evil: Regeneration
Hideo Kojima's Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater 3D "The Naked Sample"
Sonic Rush 3
Super Monkey Ball 3DS

And there's already leaked screenshots of an Ocarina of Time Remake, with upped textures.


This is going much better than even I thought it would go. I thought the 3DS would be perfect, but now it just straight up sounds heavenly.

I had no idea just how right I would be.

MOREsequels, a REMAKE? FUCK. Gaming industry has turned into fucking Hollywood. Get me out of here. UGHhhhh..... Our only hope is indie developers now. Fuck fuck fuck fuck. I am so grumpy today.

I think Rize was talking about 2D gaming in general (as in, games with 2 dimensions of movement available)

Nah, 2d will still exist, it has to. 2D games with 3D visuals jumping out would be excellent.

Phat to Lite and back to Phat and now I still want an XL and a 3DS.


And I really don't care if it's same games from same IPs.

Still going to kick ass.
