    They finally found out...

    I hope this means a new Star Fox or something like it...
    And less shovelware.

    DS could use a big hit, but to Nintendo, that's the likes of Nintendogs and New Super Mario Bros.

    How hard can it be to make New Super Mario Bros 2?

    I'm pretty sure Iwata is talking about Touch Generations games such as Nintendogs, Brain Training, Wii Fit etc.

    I don't think games like Golden Sun, F-Zero or even Zelda would really drive sales as much as games like those, that appeal to all ages, would.

    Sales will rocket when Layton 3 is released in Europe. But I heard a rumour about a second Mario Kart title. Can't remember whether it was for the Wii or DS though but considering the new issue of ONM has a feature on Mario Kart: Past, Present and Future and they have an exclusive next month, that gives it a bit of credit. As I said it was just a rumour.

    Any sequel to a high sales game on DS would rake in the cash but I'd expect Nintendo's priority at the moment to be on 3DS and getting that finalised before thinking about a big DS title.

    A new Kirby game would be awesome.
    The last one was pretty good, and the sales weren't bad if I'm not wrong.

    As long as it's a classic Kirby game (read: Amazing Mirror/Superstar Ultra/...) I'm okay with it. I didn't like Canvas Curse because it wasn't like Kirby at all... So I hope that they never make something like it again.

    Yea, Canvas Curse didn't really appeal to me neither.
    I also don't really like those 3D Kirby games. Just plain 2D for me :>

    I really would love a side scroller Metroid or a new FZERO...........but knowing Nintendo, what they should come up with is something that you can play online with a massive community of all ages that everybody can pick up and play...........and then heavily advertise it all over the world.
    Something like Nintendogs for example but with people instead of dogs, so that when you walk trough the park it finds your soul mate in real life..............you know something creapy like that for lonly people or desperate housewives.........LOL

    A new side-scrolling Metroid for the DS would be awesome.

    Dwindling ds sales in europe exist for two reasons:
    -Most of the people who want a ds, have one by now
    -In europe 90% of released games are shovelware. Good games, if released in Europe at all, come anywhere from a month to a year later than the american version, and most of em (yes TWEWY I'm looking at you) are nowhere to be found here.
