Nintendo realises that making 3D games is hard, reconsiders plans

File this one under "Probably should have thought about that before you started". Nintendo, a game development company at the cutting edge of handheld 3D games, with a rich and storied history in 2D 8-bit retro gaming, has been having some pretty serious trouble making 2D 8-bit retro games on its cutting edge 3D handheld.

Making new games instead of porting over and over might help.

"Wait... you mean it doesn't just print money? We have to put something into this? Well, shit."

I think that said it all?

I think you are asking too much, it' s Nintendo after all.

( aah, the good days that Nintendo gave me enough reasons to be their fan! :/ )

I think having a main feature (3D) that you cannot easily advertise is also a big problem.

Also, not everyone likes the handheld 3D experience. I cant help but think that there was some lax product testing with this thing

no you didn't lol
what does that have to do with this?

they are talking about making 2D games into 3D

i dont about others but 3D is a gimmick and waste of resources..
i know the big N loves gimmicks but the one that gives you headache is a BAD gimmick

2D 8-bit retro games on 3D handheld

That should be super easy for them. Just make the sprite into blocks like 3d dot game heroes.

maybe just bring out Nintendo Wii HD instead of Nintendo 3D. wait for easier technology.

i dont know about everyone else i dont want to put glasses on my face everytime i play my game. or spend 3000 + 129 + other stuff just to see 3D. leave 3D for the movies. put all games on bluray and call it a day.

Tikicobra2749d ago

The 3DS doesn't use glasses... And the Wii HD is the Wii U.

ShadowKingx2748d ago

im not one for portable games. so i guess im referring to consoles. now if wii u can be play with wii controllers then nintendo has a winning console on there hands.
