    Apart from 3D classics, are there any dedicated 3DS games on the eShop ?

    All the DSiWare games were originally made for DSi, so they do not take advantage of 3DS' hardware. Plus, DSi games have to be upsampled from DS/DSi resolution introducing some blur, which kinda defeats the purpose of buying pixel-art games...

    Pokedex 3D is the only one, AFAIK.

    Hopefully once the 3DS games start rolling out on the eShop, they don't stop anytime soon. I'd rather play dsiware on a dsi, and the 3D classics get boring real fast. From a developer's standpoint, it makes sense to keep making dsi games, since the market is larger for those who own either system. From Nintendo's standpoint, they should realize that more is needed to make people "need" the 3DS in order to enjoy exclusive content in 3D.

    Isn't it bizarre that no game studio has released a 3DSWare game ?

    I mean, it would take 2-3 weeks to implement something simple as Zuma/Luxor, Tetris, Pipemania, Picross, Angry Birds etc.
    Especially if your game was already ported to iPhone and/or Android.
    Throw in the 3D effect, some particle effects, some OpenGL shaders, and you have a 3DS game.

    Hmmmm ?

    This week Europe is getting Let's Golf! 3D from Gameloft. Probably America will get it soon, too; but there's nothing officially stated.

    I won't be buying it again since I already bought the Let's Golf DSI version.
