    Oracle of Both Things are an instant buy for me. Nothing else is particularly interesting, IMO.

    So MH3U's 3DS version can now go online with Wii U LAN adapter? Sweet for those who own a Wii U and want to get the 3DS version! Also, can't wait for the last Professor Layton! I will miss that guy :cry: MH4 looks licious, too! ^_^ I am a little interested to hear more about Youkai Watch, sounds like fun to me.

    In other words, here's what I would buy if those games were localised:
    MH4 (probable buy)
    Professor Layton and the Azran legacy (definite buy)
    Youkai Watch (maybe)

    EDIT: MH4 video in 1080p:

    Although I am also excited for it (Black Rathalos, rawr), I for one refuse to accept it as "Best looking 3DS game". Even Street Fighter IV 3D had better textures than that. Hell, even Kid Icarus had better textures than that.

    Granted, Capcom has at least two of the best looking 3DS games, but it's MH3G and Revelations. The others are arguably so. Seriously, go compare an MH3U gameplay vid with an MH4 gameplay vid, the difference in visual quality is hard to miss, unless you are actively avoiding it.

    Not really, the character models have higher textures, polygons than MH ultimate. Only the ground textures are poor, but monster models and character models are visually more better than MH ultimate. Even the environment is slightly better in MH 4.

    You can't really directly judge it without seeing it on a 3DS screen, we all know how that goes.

    Wow, that game sure jumped from what we saw last time, expecting 60fps with AA since it's from Capcom too, this footage is running on a 3DS with no slowdowns, stunning. 2:00 in the video onward blew me away with the amount of stuff going on, look at 3:00, that's a jump from Revelations right there. Aside from the shitty ground textures which I doubt people will notice on the 3DS screens, this looks stellar visually.
    I'm not a MH fan but it looks like Capcom is putting everything into this, the gameplay looks a lot more interesting than tri. Seems like people who didn't like the previous entries should give the series a new shot with 4.

    Even if I don't think RS would ever make a GTA for the 3DS, you have to keep in mind that this was a Japanese event, so it makes sense if these games aren't your cup of tea.

    How does monster hunter look so damn good?
    Does it come with a gaming PC addon?

    SMT IV looks great definite buy for me if it gets localized, MH4 looks pretty interesting too. Also Oracle of Seasons is one of my favorite zelda games, love the game.

    SMTIV and MH4 both look damn amazing, hopefully they get localized. Also, it seems to follow the trend of games that are 4th in a series that look great the 3DS has currently going on (Etrian Odyssey 4, Mario and Luigi RPG 4, Rune Factory 4)

    I can't be the only one who thinks it's rather retarded to have the 3DS online for Monster Hunter require a separate adapter when it could support online all on its own.
