Wait, you wanted GAMES for your 3DS? Fine!

So the 3DS press conference just wrapped up, and what did we get?  Redesign? Circle Pad news? A crapload of games?

So, let’s run down a list of the games that were announced or mentioned.  Be prepared, it’s lengthy:

Wow…. not a bad list, eh?  Iwata closed with saying that they were aware the 3DS didn’t please all gamers, which is why they’re stepping it up.  Interestingly enough the DS was owned by a majority of females, and the 3DS is currently owned by a majority of males, so they’re working on balancing that up.  Style games and a pink 3DS… hope they’ve got more up their sleeves than that!
