I really hope NoA does another Nintendo Direct to talk about Q1 games soon. Its a great opportunity to do pretty much what this thread is doing, rep some good games for the system and to keep consumers in the know.
Ridge Racer 3D
Publisher: Namco Bandai
Regions: NA, JP, EU, AU
Purchase: Buy it on sale, but it's still great
Ridge Racer returns with a fantastic depth 3D, music, and lots of cars. No online play though
3D Classics: Twinbee is fantastic as well.
stunning 3D effect, awesome soundtrack and hardcore hard(compared to the other Twinbees). of course they also removed the (rare) flicker problems of the NES version
one of my fav topdown shmups ever.
also - Slime Mori Mori 3 continues the lineage of being aweome. Crazy that it seems to be hitting the bargain bins in Japan :/
Nano Assault is pretty good as well.
Ghost Recon is the KING of ignored games that are actually excellent.
Ridge Racer 3DS - you know, once you get over the 30fps in 3D the game gets good! I sank 30~ hours into it and , whilst at first being "WTF IS THIS SHIT!?" once it wore off i had the usual amount of fun with it.
Mario 3D Land is phenomenal - i'm sure no one HASN'T got it yet, but if for what strange reason you decided not to : wake up and smell the smartest Mario in a long while. Sure the first time through is low on challenge, but it sure picks up in the seemingly endless romp that is the extras. Seriously pant tinglingly good.
Nothing on that list excites me besides the big three, MK7 Zelda and 3D land, what this system needs is a new Kirby and Megaman. A Pokemon game too but that one is at least guaranteed, could look great with hydro pumps coming right at your face in 3D.
I'll fix it don't worry, I was just listing all the games at once. XD - I think they might have online play in the western version since Capcom said online is important to expand the series outside of Japan.
Does anybody have a list of all of the 3DSWare games that have come out in Japan? I remember there were quite a few of them before the US even got their first game, and many of them looked really good.
When is this coming out????!!! I do not want to play the Wii version!
Edit: By the way who thinks after the last trailer that KI will be rad? I am getting a feeling that it will have a very mechanistic feel to its combat engine, kind of like RE 4 and Halo spiced up with Smash Bros punch of speed and silliness. In multiplayer we have seen that they even have SSBM/B, parry mechanic, it will be a nice chaotic fun.
