3DS is definitely looking better then it did at launch. With a whole slew of 3rd and 1st party support landing on the console by the end of the year, this is absolutely on my buy list!

I’m particularly interested in Paper Mario, I love the new mechanics with the stickers. Castlevania looks amazing, a 2D God of War is certainly an awesome idea! And Epic Mickey is really going to be a top notch game for retro nostalgia! Don’t forget the return to Luigi’s Mansion! I loved the original on GameCube, So I’m really excited about this one!

A lot of really great content is coming to the console, so I’m really glad they gave the 3DS it’s own show! Kudos Nintendo!
