Marvel Pinball 3D and Zen pinball are good. Double Dragon (VC) is great despite being b+w

Pretty bummed the 30th anniversary sale on the WiiU isn't on the 3DS as well. One more reason it's totally absurd to not have a unified network and cross platform compatibility for VC games.

I heard rune factory 4 is coming to the USA via XSeed

Also I have another question, is it normal for the regular 3DS to take this long to charge. I plugged mine in at literately 10:20 this morning and it did not shut off until about 1:40pm, this is with only one bar of life gone (the other 3 bars were present, I think there are 4 bars.) I am finding charging times for this system to be abnormally long. Heck I think this system takes longer to charge than my iPad 2, which only takes this long to charge if its well depleted. However the 3DS with only 1 bar depleted takes several hours to charge. Really not an issue with me because I play at home thus I can plug my system in any time but these long charging times are really unacceptable in today's world especially when the battery lasts so little on the 3DS. I don't even play with the 3D on and I play mostly regular DS games, so I should be getting longer battery life than someone who played with the 3D on and played 3DS games but its still absolutely terrible.

However, the BEST thing about the 3DS is NO HEALTH AND SAFETY SCREEN at startup! I cannot stress how good of a feature this is, as its extremely annoying to see that screen every time you boot up a handheld system, so this is quite awesome.

That is definitely not normal. I don't think it takes that long to charge my 3DS when it is completely dead. Does this happen regardless of where you charge it? And do you have more than one cable to test with?

Does the normal Nintendo-branded DSi charger work with the 3DS XL? My fiance misplaced my charger, and now I can't seem to find anything locally aside from a Nintendo-branded DSi charger.

This is the one I'm referencing.

They're the same charger, so you're fine.

Yeah, I am so tempted to download it, but what is really putting me off of it is not only the fact that I am still a physical person, but because Nintendo does not have a universal download system, like tied to your account. If I break my 3DS or something happens to it, I want to easily retrieve my games.

I pre-ordered on Amazon and it sucks that there aren't any stores in the world that has the physical copy until the end of the week...I think it is because of Nintendo's Sunday releases and the fact that they can be putting off physical distribution to promote digital sales on it.

I guess I can keep playing the demo, which is awesome by the way! It sucks I can't make my own character, even if he will be erased when we close the demo, but it'd be nice to see all the customization options for your character.

This game blew my mind...the cutscenes, cinematics, and battles are just awesome! Great freaking job, Nintendo!

Seriously, the production values for FE seem off the charts. The smoke/embers in the demo map are arguably some of the best "3D" I've seen on the system. I'm fighting every urge to just DL it, even though I just started Tactics Ogre on PSP...

My Target is stupid. The website said it was available so I went there to get it...did the store tracker and stuff to make sure it was at my store.

So I drive all the way there. They do have it in stock and are holding it until the 10th though, so no one cannot buy it until then.

I was like WTF it is the street date. And after arguing, I was right, and they was about to go and get one for me from the back but it was in an unknown location. The manager said that that meant it was held up in some office or room in their basement that she cannot access...no idea.

Well I'll just wait for Amazon, I guess....save me some tax money. Target lost my sale from being so stupid.

started playing Fire Emblem and have had it crash now on me twice during cinematic scenes. One during the opening scene and one at the start of Chapter 3. The game basically force closes to the home screen and I can restart. Once restarted all is OK again.

I noticed one cutscene where it glitched a tiny bit; like when you're watching a streaming movie and it has to buffer.

My 3ds is an XL model with the latest firmware update; FE is of course a physical copy.

Anyone have similar experience?

Same thing here. The manager said it's because the Target AD says available Wednesday (which it does), so they're not supposed to sell it until Wednesday, and it doesn't matter what Nintendo's street date is.

My Target had two copies today and they sold out of both. They said they should be getting more on Wednesday since that's what the ad says. I guess it all depends on the person managing the electronics department.

Lol, wow...even the 3DS cannot handle the game's epicness!

I wonder if it is the processing speed of the 3DS, like when a movie is too high quality online for example, and your connection sucks, or your computer is slow, it needs time to buffer or take long to do something. It is on a cart though, and there is no streaming, so it just has to be that...it can't handle its own software....or if no one else does experience it, the off chance something can be with your 3DS.

But yeah, to be serious, that is an issue. I doubt it can be the cart, since they all were made the same and such. I haven't heard of crashes either and this is the latest thing I been reading about, besides where the hell is my LE Hyrule Historia artbook.

Wondering if it may be due to Wifi - have read old reports of wifi on = leading to crashing. Seems kind of odd considering the game touts online features.

I am cool with the 3DS as I have more than enough to play on it, heck I got the system about a month ago and I have not put it down yet. However I am wondering if they said anything about if Animal Crossing will have holidays or not, as this feature was missing from the last DS game. I need some more details about this game but if it sounds good enough, and different enough from the last Wii/DS games I might just buy it.

Animal Crossing comes June 9th. It was in the Nintendo Direct this morning that moothemagiccow was linking to.

They also announced dates for other games.
Mario and Luigi: Dream Team was announced.
Donkey Kong Returns 3D a port (ugh) was announced.
Mario Golf was announced.

It's also "Year of Luigi," which is FUCKING AWESOME.

Not that excited for Mario Golf after the barebones release of Mario Tennis on 3DS.

I'm sure Mario & Luigi will be cool, but I still have Bowser's Inside Story to play. I'm definitely in for Luigi's Mansion 2 and Animal Crossing.

They also announced Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins on 3DS for release on April 21. It's a prequel set two years before the Wii U game.

For the eShop, they talked about Harmoknight, a new game from Game Freak that seems to be a cutesy Bit.Trip Runner with more variety to the music in the levels. It will be out on March 28 with a demo out on March 14.

Also for the eShop is Kersploosh!, a game that basically seems to be those hectic tunnel flight sequences that everybody loves so much. It'll be out on March 7.

Mario and Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move is coming to the eShop soon and it seems to be a lot more about puzzles and minigames.

Dillon's Rolling Western: The Last Ranger is also coming to the eShop as a sequel to last year's eShop game. In addition to protecting villages, there is now a train to protect from monsters and you can recruit new allies like a sniper squid. It will be out on April 11.

Coming soon to the eShop Virtual Console are the GBC versions of Harvest Moon and Legend of the River King.

Two new promotions were announced for the eShop. The first offers you a choice of the digital versions of Art Academy: Lessons for Everyone!, Freakyforms Deluxe, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask, Star Fox 64, or Super Mario 3D Land when you buy and register a 3DS XL and either Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon or Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity between March 21 and April 30.

There is also a sale on eShop games (shocking) starting today:

Bit.Trip Saga - $9.99 - Begins 2/14
Crashmo - $5.99 - Begins 2/21
Fractured Soul - $7.99 - Begins 2/28
Sakura Samurai: Art of the Sword - $4.99 - Begins 3/7
Ketzal's Corridors - $4.99 - Begins 3/14
Mutant Mudds - $5.99 - Begins 3/21

Castlevania Lords of Shadow Mirror of Fate will be out on March 5. The demo will be out on February 28.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will be out on March 19 with cross-platform play between one Wii U player and up to three 3DS players. They also say that you can transfer saves between both versions. The 3DS demo will be out on the eShop on February 21.

To close out the show, they announced Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D for the 3DS. It's being rebuilt for 3DS and there is a special 3D video out now on the eShop to show off how it looks.

There's some pretty cool stuff coming for 3DS in the next few months. I'll have to get Crashmo and Bit.Trip Saga while they're on sale.


You read it. You can't unread it.

Mario Golf: Super yea!!!! I was hoping the Wii-U picked up a Mario Golf game but this should be great. I still play the original 64 version on occasion.
Mario & Luigi: Yea-ish. I've never played a M&L game and Bowser's Insides remains on my shelf sealed. I'll get this game if I need a filler on a B2G1 or when the backlog gets lower. Definitely on my radar though.
Donkey Kong: Probably a pass unless it is a new game, which it doesn't seem like it is. I don't buy ports if I have another version of that game, unless there is a cross-play function (which I haven't come across yet either.

That's pretty sick about the GBC Harvest Moon & River King, probably 2 of my favorite GBC games outside of the Pokemon ones and the Dragon quest/Dragon Warrior ones, oh yeah and Revelations the demon slayer. Really glad I just sold my copies of Harvest Moon on ebay for mega cash, I had all 3 GBC ones. I still need to sell my River King games though, but they don't have as much value as the HM ones. Not purchasing until Nintendo makes a universal account system though, as the E-shop will not get a dime of my money until that happens. Though I have way too many retail games to play anyways... wayyyyy too many to even bother.
