Default Myst 3D... wait, what?

I've recently read that Myst is being released yet again, this time on the 3DS. Ok, so it's a download game, as opposed to a physical release (so I understand) but am I the only one frustrated that other games in the series aren't being brought across the handhelds? Why not a Myst and Riven double bill? Or better yet, 3D versions of the lesser known Exile and Revelations?

Myst and Riven are heavily dated now, especially considering they're nothing more than slideshows. With amazing sales of games like Professor Layton and Phoenix Wright, does anyone else think game like Exile and Revelations, being more visually appealing and having more depth with the 360 views, would be a perfect choice for 3DS and Vita?

RealMyst is already 3D.

Eh... are you saying RealMyst's technical 3D is not 3D, doesn't have 360 degree views?

Sorry, maybe my post isn't clear, so to clarify, I'm asking why they aren't releasing other instalments of the franchise on the handhelds, seeing as they seem like the best platform for adventures.

Indeed, even having RealMyst on handhelds would be more worthwhile than the original being re-released yet again.

Well realmyst is coming to the iPhone/iPad. So there is hope, though its not perceptive 3D which 3ds offers, still a better experience.....3DS should of been realmyst.

I read the post. Excuse me if I didn't understand the terminology. I assume that perceptive 3D is the same as can be experienced in the movies. Being basically monocular due to amblyopia, I've never experienced it myself.

Technical 3d recreates 3 dimensions in a digital space without any optical illusions. Perceptive 3d uses ocular techniques to fool your brain into thinking said subject is 3d. The difference? Technical 3d is like a really detailed painting with perspective. Perceptive is like a beautiful clay sculpture, it has depth.

lol Exactly...except i'll be honest. The iphone and ipad offers higher resolution and more detail than you'd get on a normal pc/mac. Moreso the ipad.
