After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

3DS Turns One: A Year In 3D

Posted on Wednesday, March 28 @ 12:48:00 PST by

The Games

And just like that, the 3DS seemed to be back on track. Coming out of the summer drought with a newly discounted price and a laundry list of must-have titles, including first-party favorites like Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7, the 3DS catapulted to a high with a very successful holiday season.

Immediately following the price drop, 3DS sales were tracked at a 260% increase, and third-parties took notice of the newly expanded notice, locking down release dates for big names like Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D, Resident Evil: Revelations, and Tales of the Abyss 3D.

New handheld colors were announced to give people more choices at the register, and collector's edition system bundles put even more pressure on fans of Nintendo franchises like The Legend of Zelda.

Today and the Future

Even old friends will start joining the fray, including the return of Kid Icarus in Kid Icarus: Uprising. Luigi's Mansion 2 will be sure to spook up a few more Nintendo fans who've yet to pick up the 3DS. The Nintendo eShop now supports DLC and demos, giving gamers a chance to try before they buy.

Even Netflix, Nintendo Video, and the music app are getting a good go-round by gamers enjoying the other side of things when they're not playing games in 3D. Virtual console titles and download-only games are piling up and are actually worth playing!

The 3DS has fulfilled the promises it made during the launch, truly earning the A- it received here at GameRevolution, but the future holds so much more to look forward to. How do you want to see Nintendo shape the handheld platform of tomorrow with firmware updates and integration with the company's upcoming home console, the Wii U?

Let us know in the comments and don't forget to share your impressions of the 3DS's first year!
