Another "Local Only" Classic Game From Nintendo

More information was released about Star Fox 64 3D (yea!) at a retail event in Japan. The game will have a "64 mode" for the classic StarFox look. And a 3DS mode which allows the player to control the ship using the internal motion control of the 3DS system. I.E. you shift left, you move left. You can also play with 4 other people. Locally. Not online.

Ok. Nintendo. We need to have a little chat over here at the next paragraph because we seem to be having a miscommunication regarding your online abilities.

Just a little over a week ago, you admitted that you all were not happy with the online capabilities of the Nintendo Wii and vowed to improve it. We've been having a back and forth about how lackluster going online with the Wii is. The only signs of hope were with Mario Kart Wii and Smash Brothers Brawl, but even then it was just a glimmer.

So let's work this out. You know we want a more Xbox Live/PSN online system with Nintendo games. And yet you continue to throw us this "local only" junk when the network can handle more online play. You broke our hearts with GoldEye for Wii. No online play? Really? For one of the best multiplayer games of all time when we live in an online world? That broke our hearts.

Now, we're willing to forgive you if we can move forward. But this "local only" business really needs to stop. And by doing this to Star Fox 64, it'll just set our relationship back another step. So help me help you. We need to grow Nintendo or your power will fall to another.
