There is a competition in my house. It's a slow burn competition. It's a 'let's see which handheld can collect the most dust' competition. At the moment the 3DS is in the lead, mainly because I spent a fair amount of time playing that awesome Rayman game in bed. Pretty soon, however, I expect the 3DS to get the feather duster treatment, because New Super Mario Bros. 2 has an official release date for Australia and New Zealand!
That release date is August 18.
Seriously, it's about time I had a reason to play my 3DS again, because I actually really like the thing. I thought Super Mario 3D Land was actually one of the best games of 2011.
I just need more games for it, because it takes something special for me to actually seek out the device and carry it on my person instead of just relying on iOS games on the train.
August can't come soon enough as far as I'm concerned.
