3DS Launch Games: Nintendo's Second Best Portable Lineup (Modojo)

The 3DS launch was harshly criticized by fans disappointed with the absence of big franchise stars like Mario, Link and Kirby.

This anger was a bit unwarranted for two reasons. First, the fact that Nintendo didn't have a new Mario game is no surprise, since the famous plumber failed to appear at both the GameCube and Wii launches in 2001 and 2006, respectively. Like it or not, there's a strategy involved.

The story is too old to be commented.

I have to agree. I really don't understand all the hate for the 3DS launch lineup.
Not only is this the first time I've bought a system at launch, the buy 1, get one 1/2 off many retailers had during launch week allowed me to pick up all the launch titles worth having.

maybe a lot of people barking because it's nintendo..? Launch line up isn't too bad for 3DS.. decent games: Super monkey ball, street fighter, pro evolution, rayman, splinter cell (maybe controls aren't too good, but still), Ridge racer, pilotwings)..

..I could include Rabbids 3D (because it came in begining of april) .. & Steel diver..

people is it bad line-up? nope .. :) now let's wait for May, so if everything will be good, we will get..

Pacman & galaga dimensions (personally can't wait for this)
Dream Trigger 3D

I could be wrong about some release dates..

I personally hate the line-up. The only one I got was street fighter IV, and I'm not even into street fighter. But I did get the 3DS for the upcoming games. As for launch titles? Some of the worst line-up I've seen for a launch. But exercising patience will be worth it in the end.

Kid Icarus
Starfox 64
NEW Super Mario Bros.
Resident Evil Mercenaries/Revelations

Can't wait!

Line up isn't too bad overall, the games are pretty good. But it lacks that big titles that absolutely EVERYONE must have... although Street Fighter and Pilotwings seem to be the favourites.
