    As part of a soon-to-be-published in-depth interview, Bilson commented to IndustryGamers, "Nintendo really wants to launch with a very balanced portfolio. They really don’t want it to feel like a kiddie platform. They were very clear: they really wanted Saints Row on it."

    As if Metal Gear Solid and Resident Evil weren't enough already. But then again, there are a ton of mature games on the DS and Wii, but they're still considered kiddie consoles. Unless Zelda or Mario get bloodified, Nintendo will always be known as the kiddie game maker.

    Yeah at first I thought it was because Saints Row was a lame game or something (I never heard of it before), but it actually has pretty decent reviews. I guess it's just because no one would expect such a game to be on a Nintendo system. But then again, these people probably have never heard of GTA: Chinatown Wars for the DS.

    Oh come on, I liked Saints Row but it's one of the more immature games in my collection.

    Glad they pulled it off, Saints Row 3DS is acatually one of my most wanted titles out of the shitload of games that have been announced for 3DS.
    I was really surprised to see it there, and hopefully it's as good as the 360 version.

    True. Saints Row is, well, the more humorous version of GTA. But I absolutely love it, and I'm very excited to see this on the 3DS. Hopefully that'll shut those Microsoft and Sony fanboys up. [​IMG]

    Well considering Vice City was already a normal 3d games I'm referring to 'pop out' 3D. But actually Something like Vice City Stories will do too

    It's funny how many people think 'mature' means violence and swearing. If that's the case then an average school playground is the most mature place around.

    I have a feeling it will launch right around the holidays Nov-Dec, which I like to call a non-politically correct name "Christmas". Or Black Friday, which ever one comes first.

    On topic: Mature shouldn't be defined with violence and swearing. Sure some would count, but the majority would just be obnoxious. My definition of Hard-core would be something like Twilight Princess. Realistic graphics, a defined and sophisticated atmosphere, and roots in video game society. If anything games like say GTA, with just random violence/cursing just detract from the game play.
