Remember when the 3DS was dead, smart phones had killed it and there was no hope for its future?

Yep. Too bad they won't put a countdown clock on this site for Nintendo's imminent death. Wii U is dead, right? (sarcasm)

I feel Animal Crossing New Leaf will be the 3DS' perennial title, the kind of game that sells year after year like Mario Kart Wii or 7.
