I know a new console, even if it's mostly an upgraded one needs launch titles, it doesn't need that much time
to port existing titles to the new (read: upgraded) platform.
Let's see what new features the 3DS offers:
Improved dual core CPU with integrated GPU
3.53-inch top screen @800x240 resolution (400 pixels for each eye during 3D gameplay) and a 3.02-inch bottom touch screen @320x240
three cameras (one inner and two outer) to deliver the 3D effect and take 3D pictures @640x480, 0.3 Mpixel
gyro sensors/motion sensors
an analogue slide pad above the D-pad
Cartridge slot for DS and 3DS cards and an SD card slot
These specs are looking promising, especially the computing power being comparable to the PSP, even the launch titles are mostly ported N64 and Gamecube games.
I know a lot of us gamers hold a special spot in our hearts for such games, and playing Mario Kart, Starfox 64, Paper Mario, Legend of Zelda: OoT, and MGS: Snake Eater on the go, in class or on the john sounds awesome.
For me I'd like to see Banjo Kazooie, MGS: Twin Snakes, Windwaker and of course Conker's Bad Fur Day.
What other great games would you like to see again, maybe with better graphics on this new handheld? Comment away.
Here are some leaked screenies from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater

Edit: $299!!! I'm glad Nintendo announced the launch at Q2 2011, I'll need that time to save up the money for it (and the games)
