Don't expect many more 3D classics

That's 6 3D Classics for Japan.

How many will actually be released in NA? One.

Excitebike has already been available in handheld form (Classic NES Series for GBA... yeesh, it was even horribly overpriced then). Link's Awakening has already been available in handheld form... it IS a handheld game. It's not like Nintendo is bringing games that weren't previously portable into a new realm of play for an economic price. It's just price gouging for what amounts to nothing more than a slight graphical change as far as the player is affected.

The rereleases like Ocarina of Time, Star Fox, and Metal Gear Solid 3 are different because they're more than just insignificant upgrades, but more importantly they're taking these games to an entirely new market. They might be seen as lazy and worthy of the "rehash" name, which they are, but their existence is more justified because this at least brings them to a new area of play.

It's not like Nintendo is offering a compilation of games, either. The Ultimate Genesis Collection on PS3 and 360 comes with 48 games. Now that's how you rerelease old games.

Now imagine Super Metroid 3DS.

It's not like IGN to post bad information... I wonder what happened?

I want to sig this. Or at least, put it to the side somewhere until I decide to change my sig.

May I has permission?

Go right ahead.

Don't give NoA any ideas. :S

lol...I'd like to at least see Xevious, Yoshi's Island, and Super Mario World come stateside.
What did I do now?

Should have just provided the other guy with a link to this thread. I checked this thread again for nothing.
