2013 is the Year of the 3DS

Enter 2013, and boy the world has flip turned upside down (thank you Fresh Prince of Bel-Air). It kicks off with Fire Emblem: Awakening on February 4th, a title that may get me to pick up the special edition 3DS just to enjoy. We get Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed on February 12th and I personally skipped the Wii U version just to be able to take the 3DS version with me. A few weeks later we get Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate on March 5th… and who doesn’t like a vampire game? (3DS)

And we don't even know about all the games yet. I'm sure we will here of a few at E3 that will be released around Nov-Dec 2013.

This could be the year of the PlayStation 3, Wii U, 3DS, or PS Vita. On top of that the next gen is COMING!!!

You listed the WiiU in there, the people on this site don't support that kind of thinking. That's where the disagrees come in! Lol
Learn how to say Nintendo will fail in everything and you will be protected by the dark lord... :-)
Y_5150  +   768d ago
Good point. What they expect me to say this is the first year of the 360 in a long while, seriously when did people even considered any year was claimed by the 360?

2013 is the Year of the multi console gamer. There is a game on each console that makes the console unique and worth having or at least playing.

Can't wait for Devil Summoner Soul Hackers.
Summons75  +   768d ago
With Pokemon x&y and soul hackers, I finally have a very valid reason to buy a 3ds now. Can't wait.
Haha123  +   768d ago
Dont forget monster hunter and luigi's mansion ohh and animal crossing :P
Summons75  +   768d ago
@haha123

I can respect those as contenders as someone would want a handheld system, but outside of Pokemon and smt nothing can hold my interest in handhelds since I only the chance to play at home and my bigger systems can be played on a bigger screen. I forgot about tales of the abyss is one I wanted but one game isn't enough to justify a large purchase.
RogueStatus28  +   768d ago
I don't get it. Did the person who disliked my comment not like Soul Hackers because that's going to be on heck of a RPG.

I'd say it's going to have a phenomenal year. I'm pumped. In Europe at least, we have this killer line up:

Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon
Code of Princess
Devil Survivor Overclocked
Naruto Powerful Shippuden
Fire Emblem Awakening
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
Pokemon X/Y
Animal Crossing New Leaf

And that's just what's been announced so far. Definitely a far cry from the wasteland that was 2011. I got the system at launch with Street Fighter and got bored after a couple of weeks and returned to rinsing the superior console version. Ocarina of Time 3D was a nice distraction but nothing good/original came out until November. It's come along way. I just hope titles like Fantasy Life and Youkai Watch can get a localisation.

I just played the Fire Emblem demo and I'm sold on this game for certain! Luigi's Mansion looks really good as well.

Idiots on here disliking Soul Hackers, poor taste confirmed
Krew_92  +   768d ago
One thing on this site you must learn, that complaining about people disliking your comment, is that you'll get double the amount of people disliking your comment...

I'm sure Soul Hackers will be a great game, but does it seriously matter if people on here agree or disagree?
Hicken  +   768d ago
SMT, Devil Summoner, Persona... these games would make me buy a 3DS. Well, they'd make me WANT to; not much there right now that I'd want one for.

But yeah, complaining about disagrees is a surefire way to get more of them.

I think this is the year of the ps4 and Xbox 720 to be fair.
MasterCornholio  +   768d ago
Even if those 2 consoles get released this year i doubt that they will have such a good lineup as the PS3 and 360 (Wii U isnt included because there are barely any games coming out for it but thats normal since the console is brand new)
yeahokchief  +   768d ago
Actually it's the year of Grand Theft Auto 5, but the 3DS also does indeed exist.
kingeo  +   768d ago
With all these nintendo games coming plus monster hunter and Pokemon and all the third party support they got,I see the Vita sadly will probably be in its last year.No third party support and a couple of Sony games only against this list?
DivineAssault  +   768d ago
2013 is the year for all the consoles. Well, except xbox.. All theyre getting are multiplats
Prodigy-X  +   768d ago
Its the year of PlayStation.
SuperSonic266  +   768d ago
pokemon is the best game off that list
DigitalRaptor  +   768d ago
Excellent. We know next to nothing about Wii U releases that would make it platform of the year, so unless something outstanding comes out for PS4 and 720 this year, it's between PS3, 3DS and I'd say PC too.
Mr-SellJack  +   768d ago
r u serious??!portable games never top full games only a few did but like i said a few(1 or 2 only)
Jek_Porkins  +   768d ago
Hasn't every year pretty much been the year of the 3DS? That thing is on fire. Nintendo does a pretty great job with the handheld market, which is why they always dominate it.
