    The amount of New Nintendo 3DS exclusive titles are few and far between; Minecraft, Xenoblade Chronicles 3D, and a handful of others are officially locked to the revised version of the handheld console. However, thanks to the official listing of the game, we might see yet another join the ranks of "New 3DS exclusives". Nintendo's official site has listed Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn, the 3DS port of the 2010 Wii game, as only being playable on "New Nintendo 3DS systems only," causing a slight bit of confusion among fans, as this detail was not mentioned anywhere in the Nintendo Direct where the game was revealed. What we do know for certain about the game is that it'll be launching next year in 2019, and will add new features to the original game such as a "Devilish Mode", and new minigame modes.

    I wouldn't mind if it's true (even though I only have an o3DS), but I don't understand why they would not have mentioned this in the Direct at all...

    Seems like pretty important info.

    It's not as if Kirby games have been any good lately and pretty sure it will run fine on Citra, so not a big issue for me (only have O2DS). Would be nice though if they had made it an extended memory game instead, would boost sales greatly...

    That’s... more than a little odd. Wasn’t Epic Yarn’s graphics on the Wii mostly just pre-rendered sprite-like textures? I can’t imagine that it would stress the 3DS’s hardware too much, with or without 3D mode enabled and/or even a Circle Pad Pro plugged in if it uses the C-Stick or RZ/LZ buttons.

    Pretty awkward considering that hardly any 3DS games stand out enough to make people buy the new system besides having streamline controls part of the system. Besides SNES games, hardly any 3DS games require a new 3DS to play let alone take advantage of "Circle pad pro" controls.:blink:

    if you play 3ds games in the slightest you pretty much want a new console so much exclusive stuff especially homebrew stuff

    From what I saw, this game uses anti-aliasing, which probably means rendering at 800x480 and downsampling. Honestly, the yarn effects would look pretty crappy without it.

    Honestly, it’s about time Nintendo started to use the New 3DS hardware. Support from them has been appalling.

    As an n3DS owner, I'm disappointed in the number of games that support the extra 0.5 GHz the "new" models have. There are just two exclusives that come to my mind: Xenoblade Chronicles 3D and a really slow version of The Binding of Isaac Rebirth. (Well, and Minecraft, since it was mentioned in this article.) It's nice to see, that there finally is a new game for this console. But that still doesn't justify rebuying a 3DS at a higher price a few years ago. In my opinion, if it wasn't for homebrew, the n3DS would've been pretty useless.

    As much as I can understand the frustration, honestly I don't care. Mostly because I'll probably skip the game given it's mostly just a port of the Wii version, right? Honestly, I don't really see the point. It feels like Nintendo has just given up on actually introducing new ideas. Even the whole yarn thing wasn't really something new when it was introduced--the concept is as old as Yoshi's Island and so it's little wonder there's a yarn version of that as well.

    It's times like this I really wish Nintendo would do something actually interesting/daring. More than just Labo, I mean.

    Your mom's basement.
    Homebrew has supported the New 3DS model more than Nintendo has! Sad.
