@HaloOverrated: Personally, I loved Super Mario 64, but I hated the original Kid Icarus, so I like that it is very different. Seriously, it may have been good for its time, but I wasn't alive back then, so when I tried it like a year ago it was such a huge let-down considering the cred it had.
As for this game, I'm not sure if it will be any good. My main worry is the controls. I hated Metroid Prime: Hunter's control scheme, it really made my fingers & wrists sore after playing an hour. Otherwise, however, this looks like an exciting, challenging brawler/shooter, and I'm curious to see how it turns out.
@HaloOverrated Of course, I'm probably going to get hate mail since I have a picture of Sonic on my profile, and I happen to hate a Nintendo game that's still viewed by many as one of the greatest games of all time. It's completely coincidence, BTW. I hated Super Mario 64 because they took an exciting, precision-based platformer, and turned it into a boring, tedious objective-based game where I just explore, complete random objectives, and search for generic crap. That, alone, ruined it for me, but they made it even worse by forcing me to replay the same levels over & over (except I would search for different things or complete different tasks). People loved it & praised it at the time because of how revolutionary it was for then (3D games were relatively new back then), mainly the camera & controls. Personally, I don't think they've aged well. The camera is awful compared to the 3D platformers of today, and the controls feel unresponsive & rough compared to Galaxy. People still love it & praise it today because of the exploration, some claiming that linear games are a thing of the past (which is actually quite silly since most games are actually still linear). That's what it makes it boring for me. It's why, unlike many people, I was actually glad that Galaxy was linear & had a much larger focus on platforming (I really did love that game).
Not saying it looks bad, but this is not Kid Icarus. Then again, Super Mario 64 wasn't really Mario, either. Anyway, I'm not buying a 3DS (or at least not anytime soon), but for the fans' sake, I hope this turns out good. Then again, people seem to like anything that has a Nintendo label. Especially Super Mario 64, which some people consider to be one of the greatest games of all time. Boy, did I hate that game! >:(
The 3DS is an handheld that I intend to buy, I don't care what nobody say. This handheld is a game changer. This will change gaming forever.
Looks fantastic. I would have loved for the game to be a traditional action platformer instead of a rail shooter hybrid like we have now, but it still looks really cool.
i think this control may have a good advantage to left-handed people, cos' we may improve our skills using right hand... i hope XD
an After Burner or (simpler)Panzer Dragoon that transitions into a Gamecube-caliber Zelda dungeon-crawler....meh
Sweetness, except I am not excited about the control scheme. It looks like it controls very similar to Metroid Prime: Hunters, and that game absolutely cramped my hands up like no other.
I just realized watching this that I might be a little left out in the cold as a leftie. I have no fine motor skillz with my right hand. Worried.
