No stereoscopic 3D for Kirby Battle Royale

Posted on September 17, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in 3DS, News

We’ve started to see more 3DS games from Nintendo these days that are playable in 2D only. Kirby Battle Royale continues that trend. It wasn’t mentioned in the Nintendo Direct, but the boxart shows that stereoscopic 3D isn’t included.

Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions is another upcoming 3DS title in 2D only. That game launches on October 6. As for Kirby Battle Royale, it’s due out in November 3 in Europe and January 19 in North America.

Thanks to Jake for the tip.

  • Bad trending, at last the 3DS is in its final year, it wont bother too much

    Oh come on! I understand with Superstar Saga DX since that’s being made differently than Dream Team and Paper Jam (no 3D assets) but for Kirby? This doesn’t make sense. HAL has made every Kirby game on 3DS playable in 3D. Why can’t this one be 3D as well?

    Note: I use 3D all the time. Samus Returns looks friggin amazing with it.

      Thank you for making such a reasoned comment instead of all these “herp derp never worked confirmed”. I agree Samus Returns’ 3D is amazing. Seeing “Game in 2D” in the Direct immediately pushed me away from this Kirby spin-off. That’s too bad about the reason for Mario & Luigi but it’s probably still worth it for the remake.

      The 3D has always worked for many people guys, especially on a N3DS.

    This was mentioned in the North American Direct, though not verbally. From the beginning of the segment it said “Game in 2D”.

    Et tu, Nintendo ?

    I’d buy if it were 3d. Also, yeah, it said in the direct. What didn’t say was Minecraft and fe warriors, which was a bummer to find out later.

    • at least minecraft is getting a 3D enabling update soon

  • NintendoPSXTheSecond

    Meh, it’s fine. Better to not waste money and frames for 3D at this point. Now I wait for the Super Nintendo DS.

  • Anti-Fan

    nintendo itself is repudiating the 3d from its 3ds…

    …but they don’t abandon the handlet like the Wii U… Metroid, Mario & Luigi, Pokemon, Kirby, a lot of games in these months!!!

    Not really surprised. It seems Nintendo has been distancing themselves from 3D. I personally think it’s because they probably noticed most people don’t play in 3D and would rather not bother wasting resources if people aren’t using it. It’s probably why they keep releasing iterations of the 2DS.

    The stereoscopic 3D “effect” is a bust to begin with… Good riddance!

  • cue that one smarmy weirdo who doesn’t like the 3D in the 3DS

    it’s the whole point of the system

    “so what if i bought a vr system, i only use it with a keyboard and flatscreen monitor. vr is stupid”

    I personally love the 3D feature, so this is a bit of a bummer. The Zelda games (MM, OoT, and LBT especially), Monster Hunter, Metroid, Smash Bros., and many others greatly benefit from 3D. I would own a Switch by now if 3D was offered. I’ll sleep on it for a while longer as a result.
