Nintendo trolling their loyal customer hard. Such a dick move. Now I feel like a Vita owner.

And I already own a bloody Vita.

Looks terrible and I have no desire to buy just an upgraded system.

I think I'd actually rather play it on the 3DS. The pro controller setup is just weird for me on the Wii.

@charizard1605: actually, the GBC and DSi had fairly short lifespans really. Both systems were replaced with true successors in less than 3 years. I'd be genuinely surprised if a successor isn't out by 2017, especially given Nintendo's compulsive desire to release new handhelds every couple years.

Yeah, that's what I said too haha.

It's likely similar to the Gameboy Color/DSi situation. Probably a bit more on the DSi side with most exclusive software being download only. Same sort of talk was going on with the DSi and a select few were even convinced it was a real DS successor.

For those that already have a regular 3DS, it may be better to wait for a real successor. Which likely will be able to play the small amount of exclusives for the NEW 3DS plus more. At least that's how it worked out in the other 2 examples.

Would be nice if they printed more of the Wii version, I'd much rather play that than this version.

I can definitely see why people who bought a 3DS at launch would be pissed by this.

GBC came out almost 10 years after GB first came out.

@funsohng: times change or are you suggesting Reggie fils Aime continue to act excited about "glorious 3d" until the year 2034?

If we are living in a time where it's full of people alright with changing their device every two years I would shoot myself in th--

Oh ****.

But seriously. GBC was practically a new generation. In fact, I didn't even know it wasn't considered one until just few years ago, despite owning GBC.

True but playing the game in 3D with the massive scope Xenoblade has would be really cool.

I think Nintendo needs a limited time trade in program for this, ship in 3DSs to them and pay some kind of premium to upgrade, in return they mail you back a New 3DS with all the digital content available.

That would piss me off if I owned a 3DS and I now learn there is a new one with it's own games.
