    Nintendo plans to celebrate Kirby's 20th Anniverary with a compilation game disc for the Wii. No release date or list of titles has been announced yet, but let's hope they treat Kirby with a little more respect than they treated Mario!

    The 3DS will be receiving a system update on April 25th that brings much needed folders to the menu. Up to 60 items can be stored in each folder. Hopefully I can finally dump all those useless system items into a folder and forget about them.

    New Super Mario Bros. 2 will be heading to the 3DS this August! It looks like a mash-up between New Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario Bros. 3. The tail is finally back in true form, along with the p-meter. Check out the full news post here. Thanks, [member='granville']!

    Pokemon Black & White 2 launch in Japan on June 23rd for the DS.

    Etrian Odyssey IV is due by the end of the year.

    The upcoming Mario Tennis Open sports 16 characters, and the use of your Miiis from Mii Studio. Approximately 200 items can be used to affect your performance in game.

    Mario Kart 7 will be the first game to benefit from the updated game patching backend, which might improve the online experience.

    Tentatively scheduled for a fall release in Japan is Animal Crossing 3DS.

    I will be beyond thrilled if they fix the Maka Wuhu glitch.

    A Kirby collection, huh? Cool beans, let's hope they include the SNES version of Kirby's Super Star.

    If it has full-color versions of Kirby's Dream Land 1 & 2 I'll be satisfied.

    Folder are avaible on almost all new smart phones, that being a iPhone or Android. (also, computers had folder long before smartphones)
    I support the idea of folders.
    One folder for demos, one folder for shit you don't use often (face raiders, settings and such)

    Folders fuck yeah. I thought they would never come.

    It's also great that they're patching Mario Kart 7. I'll be able to finally go online without any damn Maku Wuhu glitch abusers.

    I'm not too excited for the Kirby disc if it turns out just like the All-Star collection.

    You're probably exactly right. :|

    Super Metroid will always be one of my top five games, EVER.

    Nintendo: Metroid Dread please.

    The folders will be nice.
    Also, I hope that they have Kirby Air Ride, Super Star,Crystal Shards... for the compilation.
    I for one am hoping for an Air Ride remake, whether on the 3ds,Wii or WiiU, as it would be AMAZING with online play.

    Seconded. Especially Air Ride, which had as much replayability as any given Smash Bros. game. It's got that good ol' Sakurai blessing.
