3DS: Best Lineup Ever
Nintendo's portable already has a stacked list of potential hits.
A system is only as good as the games that are on it. The tech's sweet, but consumers want to know what titles they'll have to play. In the case of the 3DS, Nintendo's done an excellent job working with third party publishers to make sure its newest portable has one incredible lineup. Although we don't have a launch schedule, there's a long list of potential killer apps, including new entries in the Ninja Gaiden, Kingdom Hearts and Contra franchises, and that barely scratches the surface. To help get you pumped, we listed five of our most wanted 3DS games, then partnered with GoNintendo for more. That said, here are the titles we can't wait to play.
Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition
Aside from the SNES, Nintendo consoles don't have many fighting games. Capcom hopes to change that with the 3-D version of its popular brawler, Super Street Fighter IV. This is without question one of the most exciting games in the 3DS lineup, simply because it gives us a small taste of the system's power. The designers shoehorned the console hit into this tiny device with excellent results. It looks so good that the game's almost on par with the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions.
Resident Evil: Revelations
We know almost nothing about Revelations, but who cares? It's an all new RE starring old S.T.A.R.S. teammates Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine. Plus, it has the graphical chops to compete with every game on the PSP, once again proving that the 3DS is one powerful device.
Super Monkey Ball
Now that the 3DS has an analog stick, it should be easy playing Sega's Super Monkey Ball game. We expect it work like its predecessors, as we guide a monkey to the goal by tilting the board, except in this case, it'll display in glorious 3-D.
Saint's Row: Drive-By
While not the most polished series, THQ has never let us down with Saint's Row. Drive-By shouldn't disappoint, as we expect plenty of missions, gunfights and cars to jack.
Star Fox 64 3D
As expected, Nintendo has an impressive lineup of first party games, and one of the titles leading the charge is Star Fox 64. Sure, it's a port of the N64 classic, but playing in 3-D feels like a different experience. We hope it's a launch game.
