Weird that neither Starfox nor Zelda are anywhere to be seen. I guess they're putting a bit more into those remakes than I suspected. I think Starfox will be pretty kickass. Still iffy on the Ocarina port.
Starfox online carried over from the DS Starfox!

That would be awesome. Command's multiplayer was pretty fun. I always wished they would blow it out on the Wii, but 3DS is cool, too!

Well, I am personally against the term generic Metroidvania, although it can be logically applied to Castlevania games which follow in the Metroid mold.

Anybody else remember when it felt like all the N64 had was Mario, Wave Race and Pilotwings for like its entire first year? Definite shifting of gears for the 3DS, it seems.

Hmmm... I may have to pick one up to scratch my 15 year Pilotwings itch

I'll be picking up Pilot Wings Resort and SFIV. Not too sure about the others.


Yep, there are impressions over at 1up about PilotWings. They say the 3D effect makes it a lot easier to judge targets.

So, do we know for sure that the DSiWare (soon to be renamed) service will be available at launch? And will it have the games that are currently available on it? I'm not super psyched about the 3DS launch line-up, but if I could grab up a few retail games and open up access to a bunch of downloadable games at the same time that'd be pretty nice.

@Deerock69 There was also Extreme-G. And um... Shadows of the Empire?

Crap. Nothing I really want there though I wouldn't mind trying a few things. I think every launch has been like this for the most part. Early gems usually release around the launch time of systems though, I love that time!!

Pilot Wings and RE I might consider.

Edit: Could you add the launch window stuff too?

I actually bought Shadows of the Empire on launch day. That was a fun game I played from beginning to end, and it had the original Hoth 3D. Good stuff. But you destroy my narrative with FACTS, damn you!

Seems decent but it feels like it is missing a Killer-App. I thought that was supposed to be Kid Icarus?

There is no reason why DSiware wouldn't be available to buy on 3DS on the day of its release. The DSiware compatibility has been reconfirmed at least during the Japan event.


Right, both the GBA and DS launched without a killer app either. And I bought neither at launch.

@stephen08 "launch window"

Basically the killer app to me is playing a game in 3D. Hopefully a good one, but the novelty alone will be huge and probably sustain things until a true killer app releases.

That's true. I wonder why there was no mention of Kid Icarus? Oh well, still plenty to pick from.

I'll most likely get Pilotwings and Resident Evil at launch. And maybe one of the racers if they're good.

So what were your eventual killer apps for the GBA and DS? Or did the library just grow to the point where you found it worth purchase?

Mercenaries is what I'm excited for! Nice job to Capcom for making that a launch game. I'll wait and see on Pilotwings and maybe Steel Diver.

Kinda confused on why SF64 and OoT aren't for launch; I figured ports would be the easiest thing to make in the timeframe. Also, where's Pit?

Not sure where Destructoid got this list, but Capcom's press release says Mercenaries isn't coming till the Summer, so I dunno how much of the rest of the list is accurate.

You know, I don't remember. I think in the GBA's case, I had simply been without a Nintendo system for the past 5 years and the Nintendo bug just bit me again all of a sudden. I realized I had enough cash for a GBA and Golden Sun, and went for it. But I don't remember being hyped for Golden Sun.

In the DS's case, I remember finding Polarium incredibly attractive, but I didn't get the DS when that game launched. More like a couple of weeks before Canvas Curse hit.
