It was recently announced that critically acclaimed NightSky will be heading to the 3DS. We have now learned that NightSky will be the first 3DS game not to feature any 3D capabilities.
Judging by the screenshot the style looks like a cross between World of Goo and Limbo.
This could very well be the first indication that Nintendo is backing off from 3D on the 3DS handheld. Hopefully not, but considering the dire sales of the handheld so far, combined with rumors of a revision - this could be the death knell.
It seems a little bit lazy on the developers' part. The game won't massively benefit from 3D, but it does have layers so pushing stuff to the background to create a 3D effect wouldn't take too much effort.
I'm glad, the games shouldn't be forced to use 3D
Pretty weak that 3DS games arent doing 3D. Why bother putting 3D in the hardware then.....
I can see this becoming more common.
wow cant say i don't blame them though
It's probably because it will use the tilt controls. Pac-man Tilt doesn't have 3D and Cubic Ninja turns it off when using the motion controls.
I'm not too big of a fan on 3D so it makes no difference to me.
This is a great game, no matter will it have 3D or not.. if you like logical games with a ball... like me :)
