The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly Of The Nintendo 3DS Software Showcase

Nintendo received very low marks from us yesterday with their very lacklustre E3 Press Conference. We had hoped they would be able to fix it all today with their Nintendo 3DS Software Showcase. Unfortunately, they didn't.

- Trendy Gamers (3DS, Animal Crossing 3DS, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate, E3, Fire Emblem: Awakening, Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, New Super Mario Bros. 2, Paper Mario: Sticker Star, Pokemon Black 2, Scribblenauts Unlimited)

New Super Mario 2 looks like a blast. Can see it getting chaotic with just about everything puking up coins. The golden fire flower looked really fun, and of course the raccoon tail.

Paper Mario looked interesting I thought. I like they're at least trying a small quest system. While it looked like busywork, I at least liked the fact that they're giving the player incentive to interact with the characters. I don't see the stickers being a major issue since they seem to be everywhere, but I can see that getting annoying. Finally, I'm glad the turn based combat is back.

Overall it was a decent show. Extended time with the above games made it worth watching for me.

No Animal crossing did kind of bum me out though. Delayed again?

the show was terrible, the only thing good about it was the lack of Nintendoland.
live2play  +   681d ago
why was it terrible? it gave us new game info on games coming out.

nintendo is purely focusing on games COMING OUT IN 2012 or even this fiscal year

they didnt want to make announcements further than that.

like their e3 conference, only focused on THE YEAR 2012 games coming out ON OR DURING LAUNCH

everyone expected big reveals. like metroid, zelda, starfox
klecser  +   681d ago
There was no new game info. Anyone who follows game news saw what they've already seen. E3 is supposed to reveal NEW stuff that we've never seen before. None of the big reveals were unknown games. Sorry, but learning the name of one of the character's in the Castlevania game isn't really a "big reveal".

I liked nsmb2,paper mario,and luigi's mansion the rest of the stuff i didn't really care for(castlevania would be nice if it was more like sotn or the ds trilogy) oh and fe was awesome too

Bring on the Mario!

So the list of Nintendo made 3DS games coming out this fall is New Super Mario Bros 2, Paper Mario: SS, and Luigi's Mansion 2 to add to the lineup of Mario Kart 7 and Super Mario 3D Land. Nintendo, I get it Mario is popular and good but would it be possible to release one game on the 3DS that's a new experience and doesn't take place in the Mario Universe? I feel like the only game that qualifies would be Kid Icarus.

exactly, to much freakin mario. they act like everone likes that stupid plumber, i haven't liked him since snes before he got annoying.

its all nintendo relies on and its sickining.

The conference made me want a 3DS so they must have done something right.

How about(as Scott Moffitt would say) "Marlio's little blother"?

He was completely inept on stage.
Lucretia  +   681d ago
well this is another year i dont need a 3ds, makes waiting for the dual analog version easier when there is nothing to play. and people complain about the vita -_-

i wanna play KH but i can wait.

still though just because there are no games at e3 doesn't mean they won't show games at tokyo game show.

heres to hoping since nintendo's e3 bit big time this year.

which is sad because they showed off a new console with nothing on it.
klecser  +   681d ago
I liked the details they showed about games. I was really disappointed in them not revealing anything new.

Incidentally, they did mention the Lego Batman 2 demo. If you haven't downloaded it yet, go do so right now. It may be the most fun and largest demo released to date. It really felt like a console-quality Lego game to me.

Nintendo historically doesn't blow their load at E3. They do stuff on their own time sort of like Apple. People need to lower their ridiculous expectations for E3 reveals.
Jirachi  +   681d ago
Exactly especially since most of the games people expected were EXTREMELY unlikely to show this year anyways
