    We finally have a messaging system? I've waited for this for a long time.
    Excited for pretty much all the games other than Samurai Warriors.

    It can even send photos and sounds, to friends via the web or even to strangers via StreetPass. ;)

    What I am reallllyyy hyped, is the 8 player online on juicy 60 FPS 3D and an international steak with community channel sauce. :ha:

    The only bad thing is that we cannot have that limited edition because of the stupid region lock.

    I think the big question is why anyone would want to play Kid Icarus.

    I've played a few NES games and Kid Icarus was just plain bad. Either it was bad back then or it aged terribly. I couldn't find any enjoyment out of it. At least Uprising is nothing like its predecessors.

    Oh yeah, does the transfer thing mean I can give my friend my copy of LA:DX that I bought from the eShop?
    I won't need it.

    About create your own community on MK, you just send out the 14 digit code out to your friends and they can join. Seems pretty convenient for a quick tournament over the weekend. =P

    Was going to get Mario 3d land, but I think I'll get Kart instead. :unsure:
