Ok, all you Nintendo haters out there. After today, you have exactly ZERO negative things you can say about the once-struggling 3DS, because Nintendo came out with another epic Nintendo direct conference, completely spotlighting the handheld system with never-before-announced games and news.
Now, the Wii U on the other hand - you have free reign to badmouth it some more, as Pikmin 3 was pushed back AGAIN, this time to August 4. Yes, the once "release window" game will now come out 9 months after the release of the system. Yay...
Anyway, because of all the 3DS hoopla today, I found it only fitting that I play a game on the system. Plus, there is a sequel coming out soon to the 3DS eShop that was talked more about in today's conference, so it's not a total random game. Now technically, this isn't a 3DS game, but rather just a DSiWare game that you can download to your 3DS. I think I got this game for free from a promotion or something from Club Nintendo ... but I'm not really sure, to be honest. We'll go with it for argument's sake, however.
In Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Minis March Again! (and the whole series, really), the game plays like and clearly was inspired by Lemmings. You lead your wind-up group of Mini-Marios to the end of each level, with a lot of puzzle solving and quick-thinking required. The game features, of course, Mario, Donkey Kong, Toad, Princess Peach and the often forgotten Pauline, the original princess before there was a princess to look for in another castle.
All in all, it's a fun little game. The creation mode is cool, and works good, but honestly, level creation has never been my cup of tea. For others though? Yeah, it could possibly be the selling point of the game.
So, I'm excited for what this year will bring for the 3DS. It looks like an amazing year so far, and we still haven't even gotten to E3. Now, maybe they can start working on that Wii U? Please?
