Star Fox, Paper Mario & Mario Kart Are All Lookin' Good On The 3DS

It's funny, we got so used to seeing DS games for so long that it started to feel like all Nintendo handheld games for all time would look like N64 games. That's certainly not the case.

This off-screen footage, taken over the weekend at the Nintendo World event in Tokyo, shows three of the 3DS' biggest games in action. Mario Kart is looking like the portable Double Dash many were hoping for (at least in terms of visuals), Star Fox looks fine and Paper Mario looks amazing.

Sadly, none of these will be making the 3DS' Japanese launch in February. Patience is a virtue, Nintendo fans.

Nope, just remakes of them.

My mother was flipping out about how she needed a DS to play Mario 64, because the game seller told her it wasn't released on any other systems. I argued for 10 minutes with her before finally going in the closet and pulling out the N64 and hooking it up.

She was ecstatic, and wondered why she was lied to. I told her it wasn't exactly a lie: Mario Bros 64 DS isn't released on any other systems, but it's a remake of the original for N64. She was a little irked. She asked how often this is done—I showed her all the remakes/HD versions/rereleases for handhelds and the Wii and PS3.

Her words: "That's disgusting." Damn right.
