|It's just so beautiful.|
The conference went on to spotlight new releases for the 3DS. I have long been a stalwart against the 3DS - this stemming from my inability to see in 3D and therefore holding a personal vendetta against the technology. Well... I have to say that this year's E3 might've made me a convert. With upcoming releases like a new Mario Kart, Luigi's Mansion 2, and, most importantly, Super Mario I just don't know if I can resist that lineup any longer. There wasn't word if these games would also be released as DSi titles, so I might just have to jump ship and get me one of them fancy-schmancy 3D numbers.
They went on to announce a new and beautiful Kid Icarus title: Uprising - with some Brawl-ish looking multiplayer in addition to the single player storyline. It's a much anticipated title...but not really from me. It looks fun and all, don't get me wrong... but I never played the first iterations of Kid Icarus. Maybe Uprising will be the one that sells me on the series. Something I am totally behind though? Pokemon. The new title looks so fun, and the way the Pokedex is handled has been upgraded. I can never resist a Pokemon title.
Way to step it up, Nintendo. As we were watching, Debbie and I were texting back and forth and she said, "They are going classic. But they just don't ever have any new, exciting games. It's always remade and revamped classics." And I think that she has a point. Other than the impressive line-up of 3rd party developers (unheard of before with Nintendo and a breath of fresh air for the future!), Nintendo did showcase games that they have done time and time again. Kart, Super Mario, Brawl... But you know what? These games are like playing my favorite CD on repeat. They remind me of all the fun that I've had playing these games over the years, and how much fun I will continue to have as they release, revamp, and improve on their series. Nintendo, you are like coming home.
