Mod Note: If you would like to specifically find out about great DS games you can visit and use the DS Recommendation thread if you wish. ~ Soulreavercross

What is the purpose of this thread?

This thread is meant to be a place where GameSpot users can come and see what new games are about to be released. It's like an up to date release schedule for all 3DS titles coming out. Also, it features a reviews section for games that have been released already, as well as a community spotlight section where users can show other users what they think about certain titles. There will also be a "Game of the Month" type of thing for the game that got the most buzz/praise for that particular month.

Please enjoy!

Whoops, hope you didn't need that extra post. You didn't seem to be adding anymore so I figured that you just needed to add the information. :P

Anyway, I haven't gotten myself a 3DS yet but there's no way I could live without having one by the end of the year. :D

Thanks! I'm hoping to retain it like I did with my sticky in the Wii forum.Also, if I'm missing any games. Let me know. I think the only ones I haven't added are the Level5 games (there are two, one was a DS game that is now a 3DS title and one is a new RPG).

The release schedule was a bit weird, I initially tried to use GameSpots new releases, but then it started saying nothing was coming out for each week of each month. I ended up going to Wikipedia to see the list of 3DS games coming out and picking out the ones that most people are anticipated for. Though like I said if I over looked any, let me know. So far I know I haven't added:

  • Time Travelers
  • Rabbids: Travel In Time 3D
  • One Piece: Unlimited Cruise SP
  • Combat of Giants: Dinosaurs 3D

While it's not massive, Miyamoto has promised for Mario to be out 2011, more than likely he means Super Mario 3DS. You could bump it up if you'd like, but I think an official date may be out at E3.

Going by GameSpot's new releases list, yes.

Apparently, GameStop has the same listing as well.

I liked super street fighter 4 3d edition. It felt as if there was a whole lot of content to sift through, though it seems 3d was an afterthought. I would give it an 8/10. I did try out pilotwings resort, and it felt a lot like the flying mode on wii sports resort. I would've liked a new island to fly around, and I would have liked that island to have been larger than the island in pilotwings. I would give pilotwings resort a 7/10. As for future games I want to see, I would love to see kingdom hearts in 3d. Imagine the gummy ships! Also I would love to see resident evil in 3d, because I believe 3d could make it significantly scarier. Also I would love to see an FPS, where the explosions have shrapnel flying off the screen, and where there is clear depth between enemies and bombs.

Thanks for all the feedback everyone! I just wanted to say -- if anyone wants to have a review or just even a small blurb about a game on the front page, please let me know! I'd really love to get everyone involved in the thread so we can hear a lot of opinions about 3DS games coming out throughout the year.

The next few months with Dead or Alive: Dimensions, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, and Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D are going to be really nice. I am interested in Cave Story but really curious if it will get a eShop release as well. Of all the other games that have yet to get release dates I'm most interested in Time Traveler and Fantasy Life. I hope we get information on them at E3 or soon.

2 questions about the 3DS:

Can Region A 3DS play offline multiplayer with Region B 3DS ?

Can Region A 3DS 'share games' with Region B 3DS with single-card download play?

This is a really good idea. I don't have a 3DS just yet either, but I will check in this topic as the weeks pass by to see what's what.

Great job, Haziq!

I rented Splinter Cell, its a great game but is heavily flawed! Thanks to Ubisoft rushing it out. But buried deep underneath the terrible frame rate, audio drops and a few control issues (Whoever mapped the button for roll should be shot!) is a fantastic game! Not worth buying but if you can rent it you should give it a go. You might enjoy it! :)

Ok everyone, what do you think about LEGO Pirates of the Carribean? Should I get the 3DS or Wii version? Such a hard decision (especially given that the Wii will have easier multiplayer, and the 3DS will be generally easier to play (in bed etc.)).

Any info. on the differences, and your opinions on what one to get would be awesome!

Thanks in advance.

Seems like they're both basically the same -- going off of the GameSpot reviews.

Though the 3DS version doesn't have any co-op (locally) - the Wii version still has that, I believe.

pacific90

It depends as they're fairly different. Ocarina of Time is a remake of the N64 game, so if you have any prior experience with that title, you know what it's like. Where as the DS games (Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks) are touch-screen controlled only games, specifically designed for the DS platform.

You can't really go wrong with either, but Ocarina of Time has more of a legacy too it and is far more critically acclaimed than any of the DS titles.

resident evil mercenaries(must have) I admit that I am a zombie apocalypse junky wethere it be left 4 dead or deadrising as long as its a survivor game and of course with zombies and resident evil mercenaries it is. I don't care if there is no story. I just want to to have a portable left 4 dead in my pocket with people playing online. IT BETTER BE ONLINE!!!!! resident evil revelations(another must have) this is great since this focuses on Leon kennedy's story back from resident evil 2 which I didn't have the courage to play with it because I was too young for the RE series back then. I hope SOCOM doesn't destroy the name of the game which is resident evil and that is the series which survived even up until now. which reminds me. where was the zombie apocalypse ripped off in the 1st place? KH3DS Im a fan of KH series. The only thing I hate about it is the holes in the story that I have to play every console game to piece up the story which it had happened in KH2. It was so stupid to name it KH2 when I didn't know why was Sora in castle oblivion in the 1st place. I thought the gameboy KH was a spin off not affecting the main story but noooooo , it just did. So no arguments there. Dream drop distance is the way to go for the upcoming KH3 in the PS3 or NGP.
