    If you think the 3DS is already packing, wait til E3 2012

    http://ds.ign.com/articles/122/1224123p1.html

    In a recent investor Q&A, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata addressed the question of third party support from western developers for the 3DS. Iwata admitted "there may appear to be fewer commitments from the U.S. and the European software publishers than those of their Japanese counterparts." He went on to explain the situation, attributing this lack of western support to "the different timing (between Japan and overseas) when they noticed that the Nintendo 3DS would surely expand widely into their markets and, thus, the different timing when they started the actual development of the Nintendo 3DS software."

    Japanese software has dominated the 3DS market, both in the U.S. and overseas. First party titles like Super Mario 3D Land, Mario Kart 7 and Kid Icarus Uprising have stood alongside Japanese third party games like Resident Evil Revelations, Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance and Monster Hunter 3G at the top of the sales charts (those last two are only out in Japan at the moment; Kingdom Hearts 3D is headed stateside this July). But despite this lull in western software, Iwata isn't worried.

    "You will also notice a change in this situation when a richer Nintendo 3DS software lineup in the overseas markets is announced around the time of the E3 show," Iwata said. "In Japan, we have this solid feeling that the Japanese publishers will continuously support the Nintendo 3DS. Accordingly, I have no pessimistic view on the Nintendo 3DS software lineup."

    Could we have some major third party game announcements to look forward to at this year's show? We'll find out soon enough.
    What third party titles would you like to see on the 3DS from Western developers?

    I disagree. Yes there was a drought at the beginning, but now it is packing and things are going to heat up this summer.

    Current high profile games:
    The Legend of Zelda OOT 3D
    Star Fox 3D
    Super Mario 3D Land
    Mario Kart 7
    Resident Evil Revelations
    Kid Icarus Uprisiing


    Future high profile games for the summer:
    Kingdom Hearts 3D
    Final Fantasy Theaterhytum
    Rhythum Theif and the Emperor's Treasure

    That's a pretty short list considering the amount of time its been out though honestly.

    While there are a couple of games I will most certainly enjoy, Advance Wars is the only one I would pre-order. And there isn't one planned. :/

    True, but fans around the globe and in Japan don't mind. They continue to buy it.

    I got a whole bunch of games, all good games. So excuse me if I thought with the number of high quality games the 3DS possesses, I thought it was packing.

    Looking forward to seeing what comes up at E3. In particular I hope we see an announcement for Monster Hunter Tri G, Time Travelers, Bravely Default and Fire Emblem being localized. Otherwise I expect we'll see a lot of announcements partly because there have been quite a few announced 3DS games we haven't heard anything from since and with the way the market is looking in Japan the 3DS is breadwinner status so I'm sure many third parties are on board because of that.

    I do hope to see more eShop stuff though. After Sakura Samurai, Pushmo and Dillon I want to see what Nintendo in particular does next with their eShop offerings.

    But yeah, the 3DS' library thus far has been pretty good will get even better over the next few weeks/months. Mario Tennis Open in two weeks, Heroes of Ruin, Kingdom Hearts and Theatrhythm Final Fantasy over the course of the next two months. New Super Mario Bros. 2 the month after that and I believe Virtue's Last Reward comes out around the same time if not a bit later. Granted, that game will also be on Vita as well.
