I'm just shocked that developers actively refuse to add a second nubstick to a handheld. How hard can it be, especially since games are going to be in a 3D environment now more than ever, rather than the typical sidescrolling or top-down perspective games we've typically been handed on Gameboy and DS.
From: popopola | #001 I feel like it looks too similar to the current DS, same logo, same buttons/d-pad
I thought this is supposed to be the successor? to me it seems like just another iteration of the DS.
what do you guys think?
it IS a successor, but i understand what youre saying. you have to understand though; there isnt much they could do. if they got rid of the dual screens, touch capabilities, or whatever, there would be countless cries of "wow this is such a step back! blah blah". its kind of hard to drastically change things, especially with it having 2 screens and touch. due to that, they're kind of stuck with that basic design concept.
as long as nintendo makes it clear that this is leaps and bounds ahead of the original DS, despite what it looks like, then im good.
