The Nintendo 3DS, and the 3DS game list of the games available at launch, is highly anticipated by gamers worldwide. With the amount of blockbuster games that are being presented, and the technology that makes it possible to play games in 3D, Nintendo once again has a chance to revolutionize the industry in much the same way that they did with the Wii. By purchasing a 3DS, you will become the proud owner of a piece of future video game history.
One of the most anticipated games for Nintendo 3DS is the remake of the original N64 title, Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Renamed to The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D (very original), it will be interesting to see how the title will utilize the glasses-free hardware to help expand the adventure. Although it will not be out in the release, keep an eye out. It is sure to be at least as good, if not better, than it was originally on the N64.
Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D, release by Capcom, will give players a taste of killing Umbrella zombies with various firearms and other weapons. With the shooter being presented in three dimensions, it will be interesting to see how it will affect aim. It may become more realistic as far as aiming is concerned, as there may be more depth. It has great potential to become more terrifying than past titles, with zombies jumping out of the screen.
Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition will give multiplayer functionality a run for its money, as players will connect to each other from all over the world to test their fighting prowess on this reboot. Street Fighter favorites will be available on this release as well. It will be interesting to see if there will be new characters, or how the extra dimension will affect game play.
The Nintendo 3DS will offer a unique opportunity for players to step into the titles that they are player. When developers begin to realize the power of the hardware, it will be very interesting to see what sort of titles are created. Resident Evil, Super Street Fighter, and The Legend of Zelda all have the ability to drive the system forward, and make great improvements in the industry. Hopefully, these games will be as unique and fun to play as Nintendo seems to think it will be, and the 3DS will become more than just another three dimensional gimmick.
