    If it does release so soon that means that they have been developing the console for quite a long time.
    Or maybe thats the reason why there have been no good games from Nintendo.
    Looks like they want to bring out the 3DS when the Buzz about the new Technology is at it's peak.

    A release this year would be great! I hope Nintendo will have a great E3 this year with amazing titles for Wii, DS and 3DS.

    It's possible i guess. Nintendo DS was first unveiled at E3 2004, and released just months later in November. That was also after going through a redesign from its prototype design which was hated by gamers. I figure they've been working on 3DS for a while now too. Not that it makes this true though...

    I'm pretty sure Japan HAS to get it first, because that's the way it always is.

    I dont believe it. Its too soon. Japan will get it first and that will be months before everyone else. This isnt a press release from Ninty so I dont believe it.

    It doesn't sound right... I mean, Nintendo stated in their document about 3DS that they will release it "during the fiscal year ending in March 2011", right? Maybe they just got reports from the game developers that the system works great and thought that it's time to release it earlier? I don't know... I'll wait for Nintendo's own words about it before I really believe it.

    You know, this could also mean that games that we all don't have any information about.
    (I'm talking about Golden Sun here) could be released on the new 3DS [​IMG]
    And that could be a reason why we haven't seen much about it since the first
    screenshots.

    It would be so cool if they did that with a worlwide release [​IMG]
    But we probably do have to wait before we(I'm talking about Europe) would get the 3DS...
    I'm thinking about spring next year. And I think that a American release would also be around that time(altho, somewhat earlier.)

    They won't release Golden Sun DS on the 3DS i assure you. It is already pretty far in development, and was even reconfirmed a few months ago for the DS schedule this year. Plus, they made the game a primary game to show off for DS last E3. I think they're just waiting for e3. Would also be a kick in the balls to DS owners too if it doesn't work on normal DS. Nah, i think that'll stay DS only. They wouldn't throw all that work away just like that.
