Still play Monster Hunter 3, 4 and Generations on 3ds a lot. I loved it. The estimated figures come from GameDataLibrary, which has tracked Japanese sales for all games up to 3rd February at the time of writing. My reasons for not getting the game are:1. He’d much rather just have a night in with Mario Kart and a pizza, and we can’t say we blame him. Recent 3DS title Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey has had a pretty rough launch period, with early sales showing that it is currently sitting amongst the worst-selling Mario titles ever released. I will say it has one of Yoko Shimomora's (hopefully I spelled her name correctly) best soundtracks, and I look forward to hearing it remastered. Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story is a high quality game that works in all major modern web browsers. Captain Toad had the right idea: Dual release, HD on Switch and 3D on 3DS. I think this series is finished. Tell us in the comments. I will agree that a lack of 3d and other new features probably hurt it. I may buy this remake, if those fights have reduced difficulty. Even the original GameBoy could handle a watered down version of SMO. And the releases don't look like they'll be slowing down anytime soon! All in all, not a huge recipe for success. But it seems as though even the latter won't last now, I have doubts about Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn selling too. AlphaDream will need to adapt to the Nintendo Switch or they might be finished as a developer. Even when it doesn't make sense. Also, the 3DS is pretty much a dead console now on this side of the globe. The remake gets rid of those black outlines around everything, makes the environments more realistic and colorful, and there is now shading that adds more depth. There's rules here. I’ve never been tempted to play any of those games honestly. And for al those this-should-be-on-switch people, bear in mind that the Switch will probably receive this much love in its twilight years as well. As for the remakes, i'm pretty sure they were just trying to get more games to extend the 3DS's life span, doesn't mean they ran out of ideas, they just didn't want to spend too many resources on, what many people say is, a dying console. 1) I've mostly moved on from the 3DS, as I'm sure is the case with many others, and 2) there's so much out on Switch that I literally don't have the money to buy it. More! Second was to keep the 3DS going a little longer, as part of their evergreen strategy and a cheap option for a younger market. I was tempted but I can't justify buying a 3DS remake of a game I still own and can already play on my 3DS. They built it pretty much from the ground up and charged half price for it. Shame, because I'd probably have bought a Switch remake. @Crono1973 The original Bowser's Inside Story sold like 4+ million copies on the DS. Picture Drawn by Typho Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story Final Boss Theme Remix Dark Bowser … The game had you swap back and forth between these characters. To add insult to injury I'm not buying a whole lot of 3ds games these days cause I expect much of what is out there to see a switch port. But my brother bought it! @Crono1973 I mean, they're updated, but not significantly IMO. ID Build Date Tested By Hardware Citra Version Rating 3395b013-9db5-46f7-82b5-cf231fc2f1f1 10/14/2020 puressea on 10/15/2020 AMD Ryzen 7 2700X Eight-Core Processor Bad 7aea66c6-597c-43de-8fea-841eb57176f3 The recent mawkish attitude towards that game is due to nostalgia as well, not that I hate PiT, I love all M&L games. It felt avarage, if anything. After Bowser , under the influence of the Vacuum Shroom , inhales everyone at Princess Peach 's meeting, Mario and Luigi must search for the missing princess within his body. Plus, let's be honest here, the 3DS is on its way out. @RupeeClock I think low resolution sprite work can do fine on the switch... but it needs to have a development budget and consumer price point that reflects it. I should probably swing by EB Games and get Etrian Odyssey Nexus on the way home. But really, I feel like Nintendo does this to themselves. The remake also features another story where Bowser Jr. takes action on an adventure, similar to Minion Quest: The Search for Bowser, with two important … EVERY SINGLE 3DS release after Ultra Sun/Moon is a commercial failure. Besides nobody from that group wanted or asked for this game.Yes, it sold a lot on DS but many people that has it can already play with their old cart instead of spending another 40 bucks for the same game without any substantial changes (and it seems that the Bowser Jr story wasn't well received). (Rough estimate). It needs pretty much all of the DS' features, especially the dual screens. "The original is way better!" With the Switch you definitely need a case, preferably a hard case. I was pretty confused about why they made these for 3DS and not for Switch... hopefully this isn't the end of the M&L games... @Kriven You're confused why the remake for a dual screen game was made on a system with dual screens? For younger owners and female owners, I don't think the assumption that they also owned a DS hold true. He’s a Mario & Luigi fanatic, so even though he has an OG copy as well, he got it anyways. Bowser's Inside Story marked the start of a downward turn for the Mario & Luigi games for me personally. Considering the 3DS is backwards compatible with DS games and it came out very late in its lifespan, not to mention it costs full price, there's no need to get the 3DS version. It is easier to take my 3DS with me wherever I go than it is to take my Switch. Best use of 2 screens, the best writing and the most creative gameplay. This was such a weird choice to milk as a remaster, I have no idea why they did it. Discussion I was wondering how many of you played both and which one do you prefer. Maybe people are boycotting Nintendo for skipping over Partners in Time remake? I agree with the many that have stated that the same game can already be played on the 3DS using the DS version and a good many people still have that copy from the past. Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story + Bowser Jr.’s Journey will prove two adventures are better than one. I still have the DS version, so no thanks! I'm sure the New 3DS could handle a slightly watered-down version of SMO, just like Captain Toad. Nintendo thought people were still into the 3DS, gamers disagreed and voted with their wallets. The place where the Joycons attach to the screen feels a bit weak. No one wanted to buy new 3DS games". I prefer the artstyle of the original game, clean pixel graphics respecting the low-resolution screens, instead of trying to go for muddy 3D-ish sprites3. And honestly, it's the only bad M&L game they've made IMO. Of course NSBMU will sell more than M+L remake. At least where I live, Nintendo never refreshes 3DS stock. You not only have to worry about the screen but also the Joycons. The New 3DS was such a wasted opportunity. Bought Luigi's Mansion and Captain Toad for 3DS and they're glorious in stereoscopic 3D. It's not the end of the world if you have to bust out your older hardware for another game. Really looking forward to this as I never got a chance to play the original. It would hardly look or feel like the same BiS we all know and love. Maybe then you'll understand me. FAN TRAINING His favourite Nintendo character used to be a guitar-playing dog, but nowadays he prefers to hang out with Judd the cat. At least on the 3ds, it can retain the same classic feeling and look. As much as I'm not a fan of Partners in Time, they should've remade that game instead. I don't know how well that would have worked out for them or the fans' reception of the game. Alpha Dream stated in an interview that they remade the game on 3DS because they wanted to retain the dual screen design of the game. Inside story was a great game. @sanderev The Switch is too big to even take into the car. However, I don't really feel the need to get the remakes, even if it was on Switch. I wonder if perhaps they should make a brand new Mario RPG series for Switch rather than Mario & Luigi. Every time they re-release a game they think its ok to jack the price up. Finally, switching games on the Switch is a bit of a chore compared to the 3DS. It was announced in a Nintendo Direct on March 8, 2018. Definitely going to buy this one for my girlfriend when she finishes Dream Team, Paper Jam and Superstar Saga; as for me, my DS game card will suffice. Like a lot of people on here have stated they still have their DS copy I think it don't make since why Nintendo would release this it is basically the same game and the copy they have can be played on the 3DS. I just want a new M&L game for Switch. If used while Mario and Luigi are fighting an enemy that Bowser inhaled with the Vacuum Block, they will throw it in the air and it will explode, restoring Bowser's HP with its effervescent vapors. It felt good to get this off my chest, thanks if you read the whole thing! @TheAwesomeBowser I never put expensive electronics in my pockets (except for my phone). Tell everybody the 3ds has had its day, NL staff say that they have deserted their 3ds, compare it to the Switch and say this game should have been a Switch release and then wonder why its not selling. I don’t expect much in the way of first-party support from Nintendo on 3DS after Extra Epic Yarn. (I have no facts on which to base any of this. However, some additions and alterations to the gameplay have also been made. I regret buying it, and not just because I played it on DS several years ago. Wouldn’t be surprised if this turns out to be developed by Alphadream’s B team and the A team is developing the true next installment for the Switch. I might have to pick this up now, might be worth something someday. Safe to say Kirby will be their last game for it? The 3DS is the ONLY system in the games market capable of effortless stereoscopic 3D gaming. Following the reveal of Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr's Journey earlier this year in May, Nintendo's latest presentation has confirmed the game will arrive next year in the US on 11th January and in the UK on 25th January. For instance: the game doesn’t even support 3D. Switch is only about as powerful as a PS3, and even that's stretching the truth. New Trademark Suggests The Mario & Luigi Series Is Making A Comeback, 3DS Remake Of Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story Arrives Next January. Search the Mushroom Kingdom for a cure as Bowser, explore For Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey on the 3DS, a GameFAQs message board topic titled "What are the Differences Between the Original and the Remake". I'm excited to see what mechanics the game takes advantage of. But the Switch is so much better in every aspect of it. It's bonkers to release a remake of a game on a console that's backward compatible with the existing old version, unless substantial additions and improvements are made to it, and as far as I can tell the main game's identical asides from a different (arguably worse) visual style and a couple of slightly tweaked bits of music here and there. From the witty dialogue, to the fantastic music, to the memorable characters, many agree that this is the best game in the entire Mario and Luigi series. I'm surprised to see a Virtual Boy game charting at all, and it apparently sold more than some 3DS games. Though on hindsight I guess if you aren't interested in the Minion Quest part of the game you're better off just sticking with the original DS game. The third game in the Mario & Luigi RPG series, released in 2009 for the … Tropes appearing in the original game: Absurdly High Level Cap: Level 99, in a game that can easily be beaten before level 40. I’ve already played the DS version awhile ago. After being reunited, the trio sets out to find Princess Peach. Can't all be a gamble. The Wii is about 2 times as powerful as the 3DS. @Crono1973 Oh come on, I love M&L, but I'm not buying a 3DS remake of a DS game. I will buy any new game they release: Luigi's Mansion, Kirby's extra Epic Yarn and this seem like perfect choices for the veteran console.
