The Classic Overhead Perspective is Surprisingly Satisfying on 3DS

GenGAME writes: "3D works so well as a means of enhancing this classic perspective that I’m more confident than ever in saying that the real potential of 3DS is not as a way for Nintendo to perpetuate the spread of 3D graphics on its handhelds, but as a path to unlocking depth and detail that previously couldn’t be seen in more “2D”-styled games. Suddenly the 3DS starts to make sense as a machine with a distinct identity: like the DS, 3DS will shine as a place where classic gaming heads into its own new generation." (3DS, Fire Emblem: Awakening, The Legend of Zelda)

"Handhelds don’t need to become little miniature consoles. What they do need is to find unique ways to explore the possibilities portability has to offer gaming."

110% agreement here. I own both the Vita and the 3DS. I bought them because they're handhelds. I want the games to be handheld games.
