Nintendo 3DS Gets Its First Batch Of Budget Titles

MCV is reporting that there’s a number of select Nintendo 3DS titles that will receive the budget status in the UK. The first game is Boulderdash-XL 3D which will retail for £19.99 when it makes it début in June. Real Heroes: Fire Fighter 3D is due in September and will be priced at £24.99. Alien Chaos 3D, by the same developer, will launch later in the year. Ubisoft is also jumping on the budget 3DS band-wagon, and will be selling five titles priced at £24.99 each: Fantasy Petz, Funky Barn, Imagine Babies, Imagine Horsez and Monster 4×4.

“We noticed strong catalogue sales of several launch titles on 3DS once they had hit a certain price-point – these titles became the stalwarts of the chart, your Raymans and your Rabbids.”

“We thought we could spice up this space with some new, quality games that give full value in terms of gameplay longevity.

“What seems to be selling on the 3DS so far are colourful, character-led action games. This deviates from the staple puzzlers that people associate with the App Store.”

  1. I don’t understand why it’s taken so long for Iwata’s remarks about this to culminate… he said last year this would be the system for the 3DS, but it hasn’t happened. The Vita already has a similar system in place, and I’m hoping Nintendo makes this the standard. It’s simply a bad business model for Tetris 3D to retail at the same price as OoT.

    The next step is digital downloads. Come on Nintendo, my body is ready!

  2. I don’t understand why the casual games can’t at least be good. The Brain Ages games, for example. Other casual games, you can buy from the eShop, like Pushmo. Nintendo should do a Picross game, Dr. Mario 3D, Duck Hunt AR, etc. Not Imagine anything, unless it’s Imagine Good Games That Are Also Really Cheap.

    Honestly, I’m not sure why they don’t cash in on Nintendogs and Pokemon and do a game that’s a cross between both. Nintendogs with Pikachu. They could release one for every Generation and makes TONS of money. Pikachu, Bulbasaur, Charmander, Meowth, Squirtle, Jigglypuff, Eevee, Psyduck, etc in one. Chikorita, Cyndaquil, Totodile, Pichu, Togepi, Igglybuff, etc in another. It sounds like a no-brainer. And Pokemon has always been about trading so you’d need to buy certain games to get certain Pokemon. $30 each and they’ve made millions.

    And instead of Imagine Babiez, do BABY MARIO. Same concept, made a thousand times more interesting but adding Mario, Peach, Luigi, Wario, Daisy, and Donkey Kong. The Mario fan in me might just buy that, even if it’s not usually my thing.

  3. Ah here we go >_< nothing but crap coming for the 3DS now… why couldent the new Pokemon games be made for it?

  4. me wants Imagine Babies,me luks forward to a game of this calibar.it will be guds practice for me cos i gets a 15 year old pregnants lol.

  5. greeeaaat… more imagine titles, just what we needed. Ubisoft is just one big piece of a gigantic douche trolling -bastard.

    We need more quality RPGs if you ask me :/. Action packed side scrolling titles like Shank, a gory fps (a la Dementium), a clone of Skull Girls, also Super Meat Boy, The Binding of Isaac and ALL those games that we may never see in the 3DS :c

    Seriously, I need more ACTION in my 3DS. I just finished Solatorobo (a DS game I know, but also one of the best RPGs out there) and Resident Evil, and now I’m halfway through MGS3D.
    I WANT MORE THAN THIS GARBAGE THAT THESE BASTARDS ARE SHOVING DOWN OUR THROATS! D:

    I guess I’ll play some Mutant Mudds and take a nap now…

  6. Proper online slots taking part in is situated not on a sightless achievements, online slots is often a competition connected with intellectuals,
    competitors of logics, therapy, chance to sort probable steps,
    to be able to matter consequences, a unique energy is thought
    to be many emotional strategies (semi-bluff, bluff etc.
    ). Lots of online slots and online slots locations closed their opportunities
    in order to Us avid gamers at a time, yet providing there was establishments
    wherever People in the usa were being granted within, this
    failed to are an essential issue.
