Tell Nintendo What You Think Of 3DS, Wii U And Their E3 Showing

By Ishaan . July 25, 2013 . 2:20pm

What did you think of Nintendo’s E3 showing? Do you intend to buy a Wii U this year or the next, or not at all? What do you think of the 3DS?


You can let the company know in a new survey they’re conducting here. Questions range from which E3 games you’re excited about to what you think of Nintendo’s Facebook page to other Nintendo-related topics.

    E3: Another Mario game? Really? Really? Seriously Nintendo you guys are running out of ide..OH MY GAWD…is that MEGA MAN CONFIRMED FOR SMASH BROS? NINTENDO I LOVE YOU! Nintendo won E3!!!

    • RichyGaming

      Thats what I thought too

    • Rytan

      The day Nintendo stops making Mario games is the day they stop existing as a company. Mario is the bread and butter.

  • liked E3, improve your account systems… NOW!

  • ronin4life

    e3 was alright.
    3DS is awesome.
    I like WiiU, but it needs more… “Ooomph”.

    But if I filled on of these things in, I may just say most of it is awful so they would work even harder to make it all even better… hmmm….

    • Samuel

      That’s what I did. It’s not that I was disappointed, I just think putting negative stuff will make them try harder. The 3DS is doing great, they just need to focus on the Wii U.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    3DS is simply blowing my money away right now

    The Wii-U needs new IPs and 3rd party games *not Ports*

    E3 was Meh could have been Wha!!!…. hyped thing? SSB 4

  • mirumu

    Seems like they only want feedback from Facebook users. Oh well.

    • The Watcher

      Get a facebook then.

      • mirumu

        Just to fill out a survey? They’ll probably do one on Club Nintendo anyway.

      • VitaminC

        That is not a solution.

      • It really says a lot about people like you when you come up with quick quips without even thinking it through.

        And people wonder why I don’t deal with FB.

    • Crevox

      Yeah, I went to do it and quit halfway when all the facebook questions started

      • MrSirFeatherFang

        well the title of this article is misleading… this survey was pretty much for their FB. The reason I know is because I saw the survey on their FB and that’s what they wanted feedback on.

        • Hector Velar

          the first half yes…but the other half is about their systems and E3 exposure look at it all the way. I found it good.

      • Hector Velar

        the other half was E3 related and shame you did not follow through go back and look at it. good stuff let Nintendo hear you.

    • Yea, I noticed that right off.


    • Bacon_n_Lettuce

      Yeah, that put me off as well, but I was still able to submit it without answering the Facebook related questions.

    • puchinri

      I didn’t need to log-in to do it (unless I did something wrong), but they did have quite a few Facebook based questions.

      • mirumu

        Yes, it looked like it would let us answer them, but I had no valid answer for any of those questions. It probably wouldn’t be that helpful to them if us non-Facebook users skewed the numbers on those questions.

    • Enzo

      Honestly, a huge percentage of the worlds population has a facebook so Nintendo probably doesn’t see it as a problem. Probably makes it easier on them using facebook as a medium.

      • mirumu

        I don’t see any problem with them doing a Facebook poll. It’s more just that the article here didn’t really make that clear. If it had said it was a Facebook poll in the title I’d guess those of us who don’t use it wouldn’t have even bothered to click through.

        • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

          The poll isnt connected to FB though, it goes to some random survey site

  • Weird that some of the games shown at E3, like Wonderful 101 and X, are not mentioned on the list. Those are the titles I’m most excited for.

  • konsama

    The 3DS is awesome, with good third party games and many great games to come soon. (MH4-PokeXY HYPE)

  • InfinityAge11

    Aaaawwwww, I wanted to tell them how insanely excited I am for X, but it wasn’t even on the list of games and there was no comment box :( I guess they wanted opinions on games that are further along in development than X is?

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      You better have clicked Bayonetta 2 and TW101

  • alangato

    I became really interested in 3DS seems like it will be a great device for RPGs

    But in regard of the Wii U… I was hoping that there would be more JRPGs for it, there are only 2 right now, I think, DQX, which is not even localized yet and Monster Hunter 3, lol. There is at least X coming next year and FE X SMT later.

    E3 was ok though.

  • psycho_bandaid

    I put in that I won’t get a WiiU until they get rid of the region lock.

    Of course that isn’t true, I’ll likely get one whenever Monolith drops their RPG, but I figure it’s at least worth a shot.

  • Donatetimo

    3DS is great with alot of good game,Wii U nothing interesting yet,but when X release is the day I get a Wii U.

  • shadowx6

    I simply told them that while the content is all right, region locking makes it completely pointless in Europe. I truthfully feel that it is a deal breaker having to wait for months, maybe even years, to play for instance Atlus games because of completely arbitrary reasons.

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      Well Atlus needs a European branch or a partner. Or they can have NIntendo do it like they are doing with SMTIV .At least it means you can buy new games that come out in Europe instead of spending alot of money importing and getting fewer games.

      • Dude, importing is more often than not quite a bit cheaper(even with shipping) than buying it here, as sad as it is..

        • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

          Yeah that’s the unfortunate truth.

          Region locking really affects Australians and people who travel the most.

      • shadowx6

        But the thing is new games don’t seem come out in Europe. While SMT IV should come out eventually, games such as Soul Hackers just don’t seem to happen. And even if they get released after two years or something it is completely pointless since all interest have been lost by this point. I don’t own a 3DS for the simple reason that Nintento (and Atlus) don’t seem to want my money. Importing a 3DS is no option. While importing games end up costing about the same as buying them here, importing a 3DS would be at least $300 which is almost twice of what it should be.

  • Nanaki

    I enjoyed their E3 showing, however I made it evident to them that region locking is something that must be looked into the future if they intend to allow more access to their faithful audience instead of denying them service that is already there.

  • Dust Huynh

    3DS is a hit with their releases…It started to get a lot of steam in 2013…
    Especially for the RPG lovers out there.

    Don”t regret paying extra for my 3DS.

  • Learii

    Nintendo e3 was ok but not the best
    wii u umm I say is good but 1 problem I don’t want to carry something big when I play game
    3ds be good if Japanese keep locaztion their games

  • Just my two cents, but if they ever localised games like Project Mirai, or creating teaching utilities that helped you learn a new language (i.e. Japanese) I would purchase a 3DS in an instant.

    Unfortunately, the titles on over across all three consoles in the west is very limited as to how interesting I find them. While playing your first person shooter and hyper realistic games can be fun, they’re not productive, or provide the niche advantages of Dr Kawashima’s Brain Training.

    Welp, there’s always PAX I guess? Hopefully we’ll get more good stuff…

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      The funny thing about this is the 3DS doesnt have an FPS on it

      • I just realised I mixed thoughts from consoles and handhelds, and only spoke of my thoughts on purchasing the 3DS. My apologies to anybody who thinks I am bashing Nintendo in any way. My FPS statement was directed towards Microsoft and Sony.

        About what Risuku said, there’s indeed a lot of great games, and Nintendo make some of the finest first party titles I’ve seen and I would love to own a 3DS/Wii U. But… I feel like there’s something missing to suit to me as highlighted above.

        I must stress though that I’ve distanced myself from Nintendo since 2011, but I really do want to get back into their systems, as I found myself having the most fun with the games they had to offer. However the 3DS is the system I’d most like to get first.

    • RisukuAozora

      Dude, there’s plenty of good games on the 3DS.
      Hell, there’s even a Brain Age game for it (i forget the actual title for it) among lots of other amazing niche and no-so-niche titles.

  • Uso Ewin

    3ds needs better shoulder buttons.

    • Enzo

      100% disagree. I have had literally no problems with the 3DS shoulder buttons. If any buttons were to complain about, it would be the home, start, and select buttons.

  • Tsurugi

    3DS needs NO region lock….

    • Slayven19

      I’ll take it but since they are trying to localize every game they may not need it.

      • RisukuAozora

        Unless you live in Europe. or Australia. Or… etc

    • Cerzel

      Yeah, I answered in the survey that they had games I would like to play on their systems but so long as they’re region-locking their consoles I won’t buy another one.

    • Elem187

      Wont ever happen. Nintendo uses the region lock to maintain the ratings of their games… each country has their own rating systems, and content in one region may have a different rating in another…. region locking allows them to control the ratings their games receive.

      Sony/Microsoft don’t place their entire business on making all their titles family friendly so they don’t need region locking… you all can cry and scream all you want, but Nintendo does it because it benefits them as a company.

  • brian

    My survey answers summarized in a nutshell.
    No mention of Virtual Boy on their first console or handheld questions?
    And my first handheld was a GBC, no option for that.
    No mention of X, SMTxFE, W101, BDFF for games I want.
    I never use bookface so I had to lie a couple times.
    Obligatory jab at region lock.
    edit: forgot to mention DQ7 ;n;

    • Rytan

      Gameboy Pocket and Color were technically just remodels of the original Gameboy, so you just pick that. I know, it’s stilly since they have all the DS/3DS versions, but oh well. Guess they didn’t want to add two extra options.

  • I will say one thing here. Their E3 sucked. They should’ve done a stage show/conference. And showed more/better stuff.

  • fireemblembeast

    Nintendo power polls… ;_;
    And seriously? Why is there FB in my Nintendo?!

  • grevlinghore

    Needs more region-free.

  • Tsurugi

    In this survey every time you need to type to answer the question write ”no region lock” They can’t choose the game that we will buy!!

  • H_Floyd

    The survey doesn’t mention Monolith Soft’s X and is therefore invalid!
