Art style makes a huge difference. Nintendo's art style doesn't usually shoot for realism, and it works for them, especially on the Wii U. Xenoblade Chronicles X does look amazing.

A little bit more power could definitely be useful. For games like Mario Kart they could render in 1080p with anti-aliasing to completely remove jaggies.

Also I'm playing Hyrule Warriors right now and that game could definitely use more horsepower. It doesn't look bad, but you can definitely tell it has flaws due to lack of hardware performance.

The Majora's Mask 3DS is up on Gamestop, just pre ordered it.

Will Majora's Mask only work on the New 3DS?

No it'll work on any 3DS.

@mrbiggsly
No. So far, the only game that will only work on New 3DS I've heard of is the Xenoblade port.

More power wouldn't hurt, but no one does a better job of using the power available to them more effectively than Nintendo's devs.

@ludist210

Yeah, a majority of Nintendo's properties really benefit from not having to go super-realistic or anything. That's why I'm still impressed by games like Bayonetta 2 and Xenoblade. Though obviously not...y'know, SUPER-realistic, they definitely aren't cartoony or anything and look pretty darn good.

@cusideabelincoln

Sure, sure. Obviously, more power can never really hurt. But I'm finding that a lot of games this gen (at least so far) look pretty darn good despite there being a gap in graphics processing. It's not like we are dealing with the same gap as we did last gen, with Wii games "vs." PS3/360 games. There is still a difference, sure. But it's much smaller, at least IMO. (and I'd argue that even the gap last gen could be overlooked sometimes thanks to art direction)

@DeputyVanHalen

Can't really argue there. Though I will point out that some of Capcom's studios have been able to push Nintendo's systems pretty far, either before Nintendo themselves have done it, or arguably farther. Maybe even Square. But yeah, Nintendo themselves have been the most consistent.

Majora's Mask New 3DS does not come with the game in the States, according to IGN.

There is not a new Fire Emblem game. But you can use Fire Emblem amiibos to unlock Marth, Lucina, Robin and Ike in CodeName S.T.E.A.M. - I think people just got confused.

I guess Wii games on VC is cool and all but it is weird that they skipped Gamecube. Doubly so because my Wii U plays Wii games so what is the point?! Save states and such I guess? Meh.

@GameDadGrant Are you sure?

@missypissy
I'm actually ok with that since I wanted the console and I already had the LE preordered. I didn't want to give up that statue or have two copies of the game.

I'm not sure anymore. Was that announced this morning? And if so, how did I miss it?!?

@GameDadGrant
Did you not see the very first thing in the Direct? That's a new Fire Emblem. The Codename Steam stuff came later.

@DeputyVanHalen

Y'know...I did miss the first couple of minutes. If that's the first thing they showed, then yeah. I missed it.

........

Woooo! New Fire Emblem game! Awesome!
