Wait, did I miss something? I don't remember ever reading or hearing Nintendo announce that they were working on a Mario title for the 3DS. Is the existence of this item in Amazon's future inventory simply speculation on their part? Or did they hear an announcement that I missed?
Miyamoto confirmed that he is making a Super Mario Bros 3DS title. I assume there wasn't much media on it because of the fact that they are so early in the production. But it's still great to hear that there will be for sure a Mario 3DS Platformer title even though it may be years away until we get a chance to play it.
So this was formally announced today and will get a bigger showing at E3. I guess it's possible this could be a holiday title, but who knows with Nintendo. Sometimes they announce big games a year and a half in advance (Skyward Sword) and others get announced six months before release (DKC Returns). Getting this day one either way.
DS, DSi, and DSi XL are the same system will the later ones having a download service. 3DS is a NEW system. DS games play on it, but not the other way. It's called backward compatible and forward compatible.
I usually play with the 3D effect turned completely off due to headaches as well but like Yoshi said, try it halfway...I put mine about 1/4 of the way and it's perfect for me, no headaches and I can still experience and enjoy the 3D effect!
If you are refering to Kirby: Mass Attack, that game is actually coming out on the DS, not the 3DS. It was probably just in development a very long time, and Nintendo decided to just release it for the DS, instead of transferring their hard work to a 3DS cart and risk criticism for the DS-quality graphics.
That's what I heard as well. You never know though when the game is still months from being released. They could push it back if it wasn't ready by the end so you never know. But I really really hope it's out by Christmas.
What's the point of pre ordering from Amazon and have to wait for shipping when I can just go to Gamestop or anywhere else and play it right then and there. They need to add some sort of bonus or credit before they get my business!
