''If there’s one bad thing about the launch of the next generation consoles this year (as I live in Europe I can keep saying ‘next gen’ ’til the 29th!), it’s that they’ve overshadowed the fantastic year the 3DS has had. Nintendo’s once-doubted hand-held has had a stellar year thanks to a number of strong titles, but the chances are people wouldn’t have noticed how good 2013 has been for the 3DS. But that’s fine. In fact, its more than fine.''
