Nintendo eShop To Have 'Meaningful And High-Value Games' Specifically For 3DS

Since the 3DS launched at the end of March, the wait for Nintendo's eShop has been excruciating, to say the least. However, Nintendo's own Shigeru Miyamoto assures fans that the eShop will come and come it will, complete with "meaningful and high-value" titles that any anxious gamer-on-the-go can appreciate, especially those with a 3DS.

"Personally speaking, because it's [for] 3DS, it'll be 3DS-specific, unique and immediately suitable for 3DS," Miyamoto said. "With downloadable games via eShop we will start to create meaningful and high-value games for 3DS specifically."

Miyamoto also noted that fans can expect many more remakes to hit the eShop once it launches, adding that The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past would be one of the titles he'd like to see remade the most.

"Do you remember Xevious (a 2D NEX shooter shown on 3DS at E3 last year)? It's two-layered and I really wanted to create that at the time. So to see Link To The Past in two layers would be quite attractive for me."

"I think if it's meaningful for 3DS. For me it's important that anyone can play, and that it's easy and comfortable for anyone - it's not forcing a game into the hardware itself," he said, hinting that other Nintendo franchises may possibly make it onto the eShop.
