By this time next year, you'll have a Nintendo 3DS, you just don't know it. Forget about the fact that it's using revolutionary technology to allow you to see 3D without glasses, but lets look at all the content that the Big N is throwing at this handheld. It's obvious that they are putting all their chips on the table with 3DS, so let's take a look at some of their heavy hitters.
The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time 3DS
What's the best game of all time? If Ocarina doesn't cross your mind, then you might need to find a new hobby. Nintendo has decided to re-release its classic with a slew of improvements. Aside from being retooled to take advantage of the new handheld's 3D capabilities, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time 3D features updated — and impressively crisp — textures, and an improved interface. Maybe the coolest new feature is the first-person aiming mode, which now utilizes the system's gyroscope: Simply move the entire handheld around while watching the screen to aim your weapon. Notice Nintendo releases Zelda games at launch instead of Mario nowadays. No more love for the plumber?
Dead Or Alive: Dimensions
Chozen's favorite fighter is coming to 3DS with DOA: Dimensions (see what they did there?) The game features 20 of your favorite fighters like Ryu Hayabusa, and all the fighting arenas from DOA 4. 3DS must have some decent horsepower to run Tecmo's fighter, cause it's no slouch in the graphical department. Will the be your fighter of choice or will it be……
Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition
The current king of fighters makes it's way to 3DS with impressive visuals, a 3D fighting mode, and the ability to instantly connect and challenge other players who are within your vicinity. This is a must-buy for SF fans looking for their fix on the go.
Ridge Racer 3D
Ridge Racer is the racer that is usually released during a systems launch, and the trend continues. Featuring some 4-player online and 3D effects which has dirt and smoke flying in your face, Ridge Racer looks to push 3DS to its limits. Expect to go drifting at the launch of the system.
Madden heads will get love on the 3DS as well. The game is simply called Madden NFL Football, and it will feature 1 to 2-player action optimized for 3D viewing. EA is saying that the game will feature 3D-specific cameras that provide “all-new levels of depth.” See all 32 NFL teams in 3D glory some time in 2011.
