Interview: Nintendo's hopes for New 3DS

Nintendo has launched five (count them) Nintendo 3DS-related products today. Two consoles (or four, if you're counting special editions) and three games, including the highly anticipated The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask and Monster Hunter 4.

MCV has played on them, and we like them. But just how significant are these launches? Who are Nintendo targeting the consoles and these games at? And what does the future look like for Nintendo's portable? We asked Nintendo UK's head of consumer marketing, James Honeywell.

The story is too old to be commented.

Xenoblade releases in April, S.T.E.A.M will run better on the New 3DS XL, Monster Hunter 4 has better visuals and runs better/loads better on the New 3DS XL.

Others will follow as well.

Eh, I am not too sure he asked for an opinion from Joe Random who has no interest in the 3DS. :/

I'm their target customer. Still got a DS Lite and am very excited for this new system and its improved 3D tracking.

I'm trying to 'patiently' wait for my shipping confirmation from Best Buy before I call them and blow up as to why its 7pm on release day and still hasnt shipped!

I ordered off of Best Buy since it was sold out in the stores around me. I held off getting many a special edtion 3DS over the years. The NES 3DS hurt the most though. I really wanted that one. With that being said I feel the wait will be worth it. I love playing with the 3D on but it was tedious at times on my launch 3DS. This new one is leaps and bounds better. In the end I am glad I waited. Can't wait.
