Observe brief snippets of Paper Mario and Mario Kart for the 3DS, and listen to music from Pilotwings Resort.
At E3, the 3DS versions of Mario Kart and and Paper Mario were demostrated in non-playable form with short videos. Each demo displayed GameCube-quality footage with some very impressive 3D effects, such as boulders rolling towards the drivers in Mario Kart and fishbones popping out of the screen in Paper Mario. Here is a tiny
sampling of gameplay footage from both Mario titles.
The quality of music and sound effects in 3DS games have also been noticeably improved. Mario Kart 3DS featured a rock remix of the title theme to Mario Kart 64; likewise, Pilotwings Resort had some wonderfully relaxing music with sound effects straight out of Wii Sports. Here are a few 3DS audio tracks for your listening pleasure.
