The Nintendo 3DS

I've never been much of a Nintendo Fan, as I've found their games to be too gimmicky. Now, there's the announcement of the Nintendo 3DS slated to be released in spring-summer of this year in Japan. Here's what it promises to be like:

I applaud Nintendo for taking steps towards new and innovative things, but is this just going to lead to more Mario games being made? Nintendo takes all these risks to make something different and fantastic, and then dredge out Mario or Link instead of something...unique. Don't get me wrong, the DS has some great games developed by other companies like Rondo of Swords, but it's starting to feel like all the innovation and technology is used to simply "Make another Mario game".
