    Here's hoping its more Thousand Year Door than Super Paper Mario.

    Paper Mario was made for a device like this, going to look like a real pop-up storybook now :eyes:

    Also, Pilotwings!

    Oh my shitting god looks like they've actually got some CRACKING games coming out. Will definitely have to get this as I'm on a ropey Japanese DS PHAT.

    I want a new Advance Wars game though :(

    Kotaku say the “window” for the 3D effect is quite small (you have to be certain distance, angle, etc) but when it works it is astounding!

    In keeping with my focusing on rather by-the-by details, YAY for Professor Layton 3 (even though 2 was a bit blah)

    also FUCKING FINALLY for Nintend-cats (maybe they just couldnt find a good name)

    There's 3 games already released for the DS (in Japan, 2 in the West) but there is another 3 coming our way. I'm confused as to whether the one announced for the E3 is a new one or not since it has a different name than the first original Japanese translation (Prof Layton and the Last Time Travel). The story of the game seems to be similar as it involves time travel so maybe it's the same one after all (for the DS, not 3DS).

    From the Nintendo conference yesterday
    <object width="640" height="390"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/wPCsFAmIxCM&hl=en_US&feature=player_embedded&version=3"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/wPCsFAmIxCM&hl=en_US&feature=player_embedded&version=3" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allowScriptAccess="always" width="640" height="390"></embed></object>

    Resident Evil looks ASTONISHING. I'm quite speechless.

    It looks like it'll retail for £200.

    A Virtual Console of GB, GBC and GBA games will be available. There's talk of them being converted for 3D.

    Link's Awakening in 3D :disco:

    The thing that's quite clever, if not inevtiable, is that the main selling point (ie. 3D) can't actually be demonstrated unless you have it in your hand. It's literally the ultimate "have a look at this" gadget.

    The amount of support this is getting is quite phenomenal!

    Is that the LAUNCH lineup? If so it must be the best for any console in history - I'm particularly pleased at the return of poor neglected Pilotwings :disco:

    I'll definitely wait a while before getting one though - if MAMA is right then $300 will probably mean £300 here (which I've never understood) and that's just ludicrous. Once they're under £150 or so, though... :D

    Also, the Street Fighter IV footage looks like it's a port of the iPhone version, ie with pre-rendered sprites rather than 3D models (I might be wrong though :shy:)

    This looks really good. Obviously, I won't be buying it at launch given that, based on the previous Nintendo hand-helds, it will be redesigned to get rid of all the gaping flaws within six months.

    There was a rumour that it could be as low as £180 in the UK, I'd expect around £229.99.

    No, that's not the launch line-up, though obviously some of the games will be. I'd be VERY surprised for them to have Mario Kart ready at launch (considering it didn't have a date next to it in the video for a start).

    Urgh. I'm going to have to get this aren't I. I don't want to get into this 3D bollocks, but the games are looking TOP NOTCH.
    I can't go without the new Laytons and Resident Evils!

    Selling points for me are Kid Icarus, Pilotwings & Paper Mario. Mildly interested in RE:Revelations (not the Commandos game :zombie:) and Megaman Legends 3 and SSFIV if they don't botch them up.

    The Ridge Racer game looks appalling :(

    You really didn't need to finish that sentence. I could write "Nintendo" on the sharp end of a turd and you would buy it.

    This thing would sell if Picross 3D was the only thing available.

    I'm sure they're holding Ocarina back in order to generate a HOLIDAY BONANZA come December 2011.

    A frankly embarrassing (yet expected) 3-5 hours battery life for this bad boy if playing a 3D game and 5-8 hours if playing a bog-standard DS game.

    Around 3 and a half hours for a complete charge.
