3DS built in applications are “killer apps”- Nintendo

Posted By | On 30th, Mar. 2011

Nintendo UK marketing manager James Honeywell says the 3DS’ in built software and its applications are the real “killer apps.” While speaking with CVG last week, before the system’s launch, he said, “I actually think that the killer app is the software that is built into the console. With the AR games, the Mii maker, the quests and the ability to swap Miis, those are the killer apps and people should take the time to have a go on those. I’m sure they’ll be surprised at the level of depth and ingenuity that is already there.”

The 3DS does have a tonne of features that can keep 3DS owners distracted for a long time, even without games.

However, games do matter to us, and especially when they’re as big as Ocarina of Time and Mario Kart. When asked when the two will be released, Honeywell said that Nintendo were planning a 2011 launch for Mario Kart 3DS.

When asked about The Ocarina of Time 3DS’ release date, he said: “I know from personal experience of being on the sampling tours that the game everyone ran to was Zelda, to get their first experience of it in 3D, so we know it’s hotly anticipated, and hopefully we’ll be making an announcement fairly soon so people will be able to find out when they’ll be able to go and get it.”
