I guess it's legit...

Official PDF said:
Nintendo Co., Ltd. (Minami-ward of Kyoto-city, President Satoru Iwata) will launch "Nintendo 3DS"(temp) during the fiscal year ending March 2011, on which games can be enjoyed with 3D effects without the need for any special glasses.

"Nintendo 3DS"(temp) is going to be the new portable game machine to succeed "Nintendo DS series", whose cumulative consolidated sales from Nintendo amounted to 125million units as of the end of December 2009, and will include backward compatibility so that the software for Nintendo DS series, including the ones for Nintendo DSi, can also be enjoyed.

We are planning to announce additional details at E3 show, which is scheduled to be held from June 15, 2010 at Los Angeles in the U.S.

EDIT: confirmed by a Nintendo spokesperson.

Yeah that was supposed to be a Gamecube game, right?!

Yup. Along with Nintendo Puzzle Collection (which never came to the US) and Donkey Kong Plus (which turned from a (pre-LBP) make-your-own-levels platformer into Mario Vs. DK, which then turned into a make-your-own-levels fiddly puzzle game).

JKR, you're younger than I am. And you don't even have kids yet, right?


Also, Super Monkey Ball pretty much peaked on Gamecube. The first Wii game (Banana Blitz) was actually pretty fun too. Not sure about the new "Step 'n' Roll" but I haven't heard much about it since the announcement. Is that out yet?

It's out! Reviews are kind of middling.

Yeah, Step and Roll sucked according to some, and was "fine" according to others. Sad times, since they used to be AAAA. Yeah, FOUR As.

Also I don't think I could handle having kids of my own. I would worry too much and lock them in their rooms. I don't think being a parent is for me. I'll just have to adopt the children of the world as my own and try to help them live better lives instead.

That's why I'm becoming a teacher. Maybe. Subconsciously.

I'm too constantly anxious and not good at holding down jobs to actually be a father. I hope to turn that around in the future, but for now? Eh.

Oversure people have issues, yes, but some people are very unsure for a good reason.

I'm pretty much a walking bundle of messiness nowadays. Not in good shape to support a family.

I've wanted kids since I was a little kid myself. Call me weird but even as a youngster I often fantasized about having my own family and my own home with the right girl.

You just want to touch a boobie.

I don't want a family. If my experience with Animal Crossing taught me anything, I get distracted from things for something else, and the whole place falls apart.

Nieces and nephews are where it's at, man. All of the fun, none of the hassle. Make an impression, and then skedaddle when the going gets smelly.

I'm positive this won't be holographic 3D. What this allows is for the effect of 3D in your face because you can now control the entire unit with motion sensors built-in. Manipulating the screen will most likely do what the iPhone can already do, maybe a little better...


I am expecting a much better graphics chipset though. I don't think saying it'll include the nVidia Tegra as too far fetched. As far as "3D effects without glasses"...that is just Nintendo building up buzz with their PR. Technically they won't be lying when we see it. But holograms with cheap little LCD screens...I doubt it greatly.

With that said, I'm excited...especially for mystery puzzle games.

@Phalanx I did that last weekend.


I've always wanted a wife and family, but that was back before I was continually unhealthy and not holding down jobs for 10 years straight. Now I think I wouldn't be in a good spot to worry about much of anything beyond survival day to day.

Nieces and nephews do rock, though even that can be rough at times. Especially when you live with 4 of them. You become another parent, sort of.

Yeah, that would be rough. The best would be if they lived down the street, so you could see them a little bit every day.

What you're talking about is my life from 2005 to 2009. And yes, it was the best.

Hmm. So touching boobies gets old then? I better revel in it for now.
