JC Connors, the studio head at Griptonite Games firmly believes that the Nintendo 3DS is of ‘console-level quality’ and see’s the platform as “an opportunity to bring something special back to the gamers”.
“You know, a lot of the casual games that really bombarded the DS marketplace have now moved onto other platforms like the iPhone, so I think everyone looks at this as an opportunity to kind of bring something special back to the gamers.”
“Everyone looked at the 3DS with just how powerful it was, and the new features, the analog stick and the 3D, as an opportunity to bring almost console-level quality games to this handheld because they could, on the DS, you really couldn’t.”
“You almost have to treat it like a console, because many of the things it can do are things that consoles can do. So, you know, why not bring a more ‘gamer’ experience to that platform, if it can do really well with it?”
