You might have seen a few of these mentioned in the Nintendo Press Release, but in case you missed it, Tecmo Koei announced the development of 4 pretty big name titles for the Nintendo 3DS; Dead or Alive 3D, Ninja Gaiden, Samurai Warriors 3D and Dynasty Warriors. I’ll be curious to see how 3D jiggling looks in DoA – should be entertaining if nothing else. I’m a huge fan of button mashing action, so the inclusion of Samurai Warriors and Dynasty Warriors is nice, but those are essentially the same game. Fortunately, Ninja Gaiden will squelch any need for a real challenge, as I’m sure the same soul-crushing gameplay will be included in 3D form.
Now where’s Tecmo Bowl?
