The king of consoles returns. The world is about to get a taste of Nintendo's latest offering and gamers the world over are waiting. Waiting to pick up the games that made their childhood. Waiting to see that great 3D effect in the palm of your hand. Waiting just to get their hands on that monster Nintendo call the 3DS!
Nintendo has not only won back their hardcore audience, they have received fantastic support from the third parties. Super Street Fighter IV, Resident Evil Mercenaries/Revelations, Dead or Alive Dimensions and the mother of all Metal Gear Solid are just a few of the notable games coming to the system. By next week all three territories will finally have a 3DS. And it is going to be amazing.
Nintendo has won back their old fanboys. Their hardcore offering even includes Ocarina of time! The N64 classic which is highly regarded by some as the best game of all time. Modernized in the palm of your hand with 3D standing in the background. Paper Mario, Mario Kart, Kid Icarus, Starfox 64: The list goes on!
One cannot fathom what this could have if third parties stick to their guns with the system. Nintendo will only keep up the good work with their offering. Imagine playing F-Zero on this beast. In 3D! Metroid and Donkey Kong are obvious candidates and we may get new favourites like Pikmin or Smash Bros. Perhaps even Nintendo VS Capcom!
Brace yourselves Microsoft and Sony because Nintendo have proved this is not just a kids machine. This is for serious gamers. Third parties may not even get a say in the matter of going on 3DS. They may need to put the games on 3DS to maximise their profits. There is a potential fanbase on there after all. This could easily be Nintendo's best console ever if third parties treat it with the respect it deserves.
I could not wait to pre-order my 3DS fast enough. And it is also a media player so it is definitely worth the money Nintendo are asking. And it isn't like its 599 US dollars. Time for Nintendo to return to the throne of king of the consoles.
