    Wheres Bit.Trip Saga?

  2. shiftymorgan Wednesday 17th Aug 2011 at 08:00

    Apart from the two mario 3ds titles none. Not a sausage.

    It saddens me to see the virtual console titles so darn expensive so I don't even care what comes out on it.

    I know!, they cost a WHOPPING Ł2.70 - Ł5.40, how "darn expensive" i'll be skint if i spend Ł3 a week!

    by the way, i was kidding, the eShop is fine, nothing so far is overpriced except for some dsiware.

  6. Rockerdude Wednesday 17th Aug 2011 at 09:55

    Im looking forward to one piece

  7. mainreed Wednesday 17th Aug 2011 at 10:00

    Does anyone know when Heroes of Ruin is set for release? It looks really good with some online multiplayer action - which there is not enough of!! In my opinion, online multiplayer instantly increases a games lasting appeal

    I plan to get Super Mario 3DS Land, Mario Kart 7, Super Mario Land 2 and Metroid 2. :)

  8. GuitarHero Wednesday 17th Aug 2011 at 11:37

    Looking better with more things coming to the eShop. Sorry, why are you complaining about paying Ł5.40 at maximum for a game?

  9. Cacnea Wednesday 17th Aug 2011 at 13:35

    Not seeing Animal Crossing 3D :(

  10. ledreppe Wednesday 17th Aug 2011 at 13:50

    I'll be getting:

    MK7
    SM3DL
    Doctor Lautrec
    SF643D
    Sonic Generations (not mentioned in list, but Nov. probably)

    No eshop titles take my interest.

  11. kirby711 Wednesday 17th Aug 2011 at 15:15

    Quite a few I'd like there.

    I'm with you here. I didnt play pokemon rumble for wii, but it could be fun. Christmas will be fun! Hopefully MArio Kart 7 will be amazing, since it's such a good series.

  15. BreezySkells Wednesday 17th Aug 2011 at 19:26

    I just wish we had confirmed dates for Mario Kart 7 & Super Mario 3D land (I have asked for them for Christimas and just get the dates out in the open please Nintendo so if need be i can change my Christmas plans!)

  16. Cyberguy Wednesday 17th Aug 2011 at 19:51

    All I want for Christmas this year is games.

  17. NickallowBros Wednesday 17th Aug 2011 at 20:27

    Well, I'm glad that Mario Land's far superior sequel is coming to the virtual console! Plus there's Starfox 64 3D, Pacman & Galaga Dimensions, Super Mario 3D Land, Mario Kart 7... Looks like the 3DS is finally getting the attention it deserves!

  18. NickallowBros Wednesday 17th Aug 2011 at 20:29

    Oh yeah & Super Pokemon Rumble!

  19. marcindapolak Wednesday 17th Aug 2011 at 21:14

  20. MDigi Saturday 20th Aug 2011 at 13:16

    And Animal Crossing 3DS? When!!!!????..........please? :shock:

  21. Beyond Birthday Monday 22nd Aug 2011 at 15:03

    People asking where Kid Icarus and Animal Crossing are, 2012 (I don't think development on Kid Icarus is finished yet). This has been stated before. However, where is MGS 3D? It's featured in Nintendo's advertising for the 3DS so I guess it's out this year, but when.
