Once upon a time there was a game for the GBA by the name of Hello Kitty Collection: Miracle Fashion Maker. It was a cutesy game based on the famous Sanrio Hello Kitty franchise, developed by Access. But hidden beneath the surface of the seemingly innocuous title was an insidious problem.
Why develop a 3D game engine for the Game Boy Advance (GBA)? I’ve always been interested in the innovative graphics techniques used by programmers in the early 90s to create pseudo 3D graphics. These techniques were necessary since hardware was not powerful enough to render “true” 3D graphics (we’ll discuss the difference later). Therefore, in the spirit of academic pursuit, I wanted.

It was the first Fire Emblem game to feature 3D graphics, voice acting, and full-motion animated cutscenes.

Better graphics don't equal better sales, and if they wanted to make a graphically-intensive game, there are better platforms on which they can do so (and probably with less effort). Yeah, you're most likely right. It's a pity though, most 3DS games could look way better. I agree wholeheartedly. I'd love to see some more great-looking games on.Learn More
The reason it goes into the 3DS’ sleep mode when you put Metroid Fusion to sleep is that the 3DS uses a version of the DS’ GBA firmware to run the games, and the DS’ GBA firmware hooks the GBA “sleep mode” call into the DS’ sleep mode function.

Other games, like the classic Space Invaders, used simple sprites to represent characters on screen. This was a trend that would carry over to the.Learn More
