    I have a feeling that WII U is gonna ruin the 3DS :/

    With all the great games announced for the WII U it seems like Nintendo stopped to support the 3DS.
    I was looking on Nintendo youtube channel and seeing WII U this WII U that, all WII U things.

    After NSMB2,Prof Layton and Ace Attorney games, it feels like they stop to announce games.(There is Animal Crossing too)

    What do you think?
    Is 3DS gonna be all right ?

    bloody drama queens. Yes it will be alright, Nintendo has developed a habbit since the Wii to keep there cards close to there chest and not annouce games until they are almost complete. Besides, they are launching a new home console, what do you advertise more? the estabished format or the new one?

    Really, because I've been waiting for Animal Crossing 3DS for years since they announced it.

    Engine Room with Cyan, watching him learn.
    Wii ruined ds.
    Gamecube ruined gba.
    N64 ruined gameboy color.
    Snes ruined gameboy.

    Those portables seemed to sell fine despite being ruined by their home console counterparts.

    Of course the 3DS will be ruined, because there were obviously no DS-exclusive games/franchises.

    WII didn't ruin DS ._.

    DS is a lot more better console then WII in my opinion.

    I don't really think that'll happen, Nintendo has a lot of plans for the 3DS later on during the time of the Wii-U on sale.

    The DS was pretty much set to die with the 3DS's release, the DS had plenty of years of glory, it was only normal they'd stop most of the DS games since it's the successor.
    As for the Wii U, they're different platforms, Nintendo has always done well managing their handhelds and home systems at the same time, obv the Wii U is still going to be released, so it'll get more stuff at first.

    This is the opening of a eurogamer news article. Just by reading this I would say that the Wii U is not going to ruin the 3DS, it kind of looks like the two consoles will be working together. I'll bet there will be more releases besides MH3 that work together on both consoles.

    I think Nintendo is more than capable of supporting a handheld and a home console. People may not be entirely thrilled with that support, but it's not like the 3DS is going to shrivel up and die once the Wii U launches.

    3DS will crash and burn.
    Abandon the sinking ship now and swap over to the Vita master race.



    why the hell would a home console ruin a handheld. Think for a minute before posting. The WiiU is new...of course they're pushing it harder.

    I don't see what the worry is. Of course Nintendo is going to focus on their new console at launch. Once the dust settles after the Wii U launch, both systems will start to get a truly great library, you'll see. :)

    3DS still had quite some floor room on E3. And unless I'm mistaken, Luigi's mansion 2 and paper mario aren't released yet. Then there are 3rd party titles like Rollercoaster tycoon, Epic Mickey and some lego game. EDIT: somehow totally forgot about Zero escape. 999 was freakin' awesome. That, and what's mentioned in the OP really begs the question...

    GamerzHell9137...How the fuck did you come up with this conclusion?


    Christ...considering they're launching a new console, I'd say it's pretty amazing how much time they spend on the 3DS. But that has probably to do with interconnectivity they want to push (as with monster hunter).

    It's not the WiiU ruining the 3DS...

    It's the WiiU + 3DS ruining my wallet.

    Actually, I have another point. Nintendo hasn't forgotten the NDS, too. Pokémon Black and White 2 is also coming for the NDS And also during the days of 3DS's release, a few releases for the NDS.

    The 3DS has no where to go but up and it's going to fucking skyrocket.

    I mean looked what happened with the 3DS at first, they had like no games for it. Then Nintendo learned "alright, we can't fuck around". And look at all the titles they've been announcing for it. I mean really, NSMB2, Super Mario 3D Land, Paper Mario, Mario Tennis, Mario Kart 7??? Already?!?! The 3DS is only a little over a year old and they brought out their big guns.

    I honestly wouldn't be surprised if we see a new Super Mario 3D Land, Mario Kart 8, and some good Mario Party games.


    And yes, that's just the Mario games I'm mentioning. There's going to be tons of other titles, but I brought up the biggest name.
