Posted to IGN forums with a throwaway account? File apparently deleted from Nintendo servers immediately after he downloaded it? Image supposedly intended for developers pointlessly reveals launch games even though no developer would need to know about them?

seems legit
But super mario sunshine 3d!

I'd buy that 10 times over.

Ha I saw that too and figured it might be thread worthy with a rumor attached to the title. Mods locked though unsurprisingly.

Just read that on IGN:

http://www.ign.com/boards/threads/new-nintendo-3ds-full-specs-launch-lineup-leaked.454207315/

If that's true... Damn... the N3DS would have double the raw power! Imagine what would be possible on that hardware... and the launch lineup!!



What do you think? Could be fake yes but it looks... I don't know authentic.



Fake as Hell

Thats bannable? That sounds kinda funny without context

He's not exactly the first person who's expressed similar sentiments towards EA. But the whole thread really jumped at it, and things got a bit out of hand I guess

I've read some people here mention that MH4U is a new 3DS enhanced game. Is there any confirmation on that or is it just speculation at this point?

Still speculation.

@ that fake list: Super Mario Sunshine 3D wouldn't be too bad with 1st person gyro water shooting. But remember: There's already a 2D and 3D Mario on the 3DS. Nintendo never does more than one of each per generation usually. With the improved 3D Effect on the n3DS, however, I wouldn't be surprised if they announced a Super Mario 3D Land 2.

I always find it humorous that these 'fake' leak lists always come AFTER the announcement of a new product. I'm not sure about Tilman's source, but I still remember his banning. A crazy exit.

It was confirmed in the Direct, but that probably only means support for the analog nub - don't think any of the games shown outside of Xenoblade use the additional horsepower for anything, and only Smash would support the built-in NFC chip. And considering the nub probably behaves like a regular Circle Pad Pro, every game supporting that could be considered "New 3DS enhanced" I guess.

Ah, thanks. That makes sense.

Note by read on IGN you mean read on their message board. That aside, reads like "let's take existing spec rumors put them into a document I made and add some spicy BS to make shit spread". By posting here you've only made it succeed...

I wonder how many developers have access to New 3DS yet actually. With how bits and pieces of previous systems got leaked and yet we heard nothing here you have to point a different picture...

Unless I missed any rumors of a 3DS revision with two sticks and more buttons?

You are right, but I love rumors because the discussions and the excitement are always fun regardless if fake or not,thats why I'm sharing them.

I think some important third party developers already have the 3DS, maybe Ubisoft and Activison, as well as Nintendo's second party studios.

Completely fake for me. The "© Nintendo" is the real evidence for me. Would have it been "© Nintendo Co. LTD", why not... But not this one.

Any speculated price points for this outside Japan? Hopefully not outrageously expensive like when the 3DS launched, they probably learned from that.

I refuse to believe Twilight Princess 3D and Super Mario Sunshine 3D would ever be a thing.

Mostly because that means I'd have to get a New 3DS LL on launch day

I suppose devs like Capcom and Square Enix were already aware of the device, since their games are among those "enhanced".

It's very hard to find mobile SoCs nowadays without BT so if they chose not to go super special on the 4DS that should hopefully be a feature.

I never use the onboard speakers so I love BT as a way of playing without wires getting in the way.

what solution do you use for your 3DS?

If it's intended to developers only why talking about a launch-lineup?
To let them know they don't have to rush crap out of the gate as there will be plenty to play (I'm looking at Ubisoft here) is the only advantage I can think of.

Any speculated price points for this outside Japan? Hopefully not outrageously expensive like when the 3DS launched, they probably learned from that.
Aren't the Japanese price points similar to the current models so I would say within 10-20 of currency of the current 3DS and 3DS XL prices. I'd go as far as to speculate they will be getting phased out (so might a discount of same). May be possible also for the 2DS to go even lower (before anyone goes £65 console with £40 games :lol:...the Game Boy was like that in 1993)

Thats bannable? That sounds kinda funny without context
While it is in poor taste to speculate on bannings, I'd look at thier post history. I notice a pattern of a lot of self promotion be it their youtube videos (which are sometimes reuploads of ones that already exist on youtube) or tweets. Maybe the EA thing was the breaking point though.

Can someone explain to me the point of microSD? are they removing the SD slot? Having both seems redundant.

That IGN forum story is bullshit and we all know it...but I can actually remember rumours about firmware 8.0 being relevant for the future of eShop, and something like that. Don't remember exactly what was said, though. Maybe a little research could help?

Most developers didn't know anything about the New 3DS until the Nintendo Direct and the specs weren't posted on warioworld until afterwards. So yeah it's far less likely that one of the few developers who were let in on it pre-announcement would leak anything.

I'm not going to confirm or deny the accuracy of any claimed leaks, but when they can't even get the original 3DS specs right you can be fairly certain it's fake

The leaked wouldn't be very appealing to me if true (I don't think it is anyway). The 3DS' poor resolution would not help in making those games look very nice, I'd rather see them on the Wii U or the eventual 3DS successor.

Mmh...this means that now indie developers as well are aware of new 3DS specs, right?

-18 came with an update to it as did -19 (both firmware 8.x series, -19 was probably to make you update to connect*). It was not understod what was updated in the 8.x series when it first came out and what would make it go up a whole firmware so it was speculation based on the eShop being updated. In hindsight it is likely Japanese New 3DS is shipping with firmware 8.0.0-18 as the memory offsets stuff point in that direction.

* Curiously the 6.x series of firmware never had an eShop updates.

Yes, I really should stay away from these threads before I accidentally let anything slip. Still just the specs though, no new developer hardware available or updated tools yet. I'm not very interested in using the new hardware personally though, just happy if it can extend the 3DS lifetime.

So now the new 3DS will have roughly all the same buttons/lnputs as a Wii U, is it possible we could see some more Handheld/console interaction?

(It'd be neat if we could use the new 3DS to stream off tv play for games that require the gamepad and TV screen, of course I doubt that will happen with this handheld)

Twilight Princess, really now, that is just reaching. Game was too popular in the Wii to be remade just a generation later already. Would be more believable if they put Majora's Mask, since people have been asking for this since OoT 3D.
