Graphics are more important than the gameplay? You need to get yourselves checked if you think this way.
It's more of the fact that we so far don't have that much information on the mechanics of the game beyond what was shown in the trailers and pictures. We do know that there will be support attacks and defense but we don't know what they run off of or if enemies can utilize them or if they're just a gimmick to reinforce the illusion of the 3D's depth by sticking three objects at varying ranges against a background. We do know that we're on a new continent (which thankfully means no fucking Laguz) but we don't know if there are any new gimmick races taking the Laguz's place or not. We do know that skills are back, but we don't know if they resemble FE9/10's skills, Tear Ring Saga's skills, or FE8's "skills". We don't know what support method they're using this time. We don't know why the Jeigan is shown wielding Axes like a Great Knight rather than a Paladin. We don't even know if there will be multiple parties or not like in FE2 despite the presence of a map.
That said, we do know that the lolipop princess/staff chick is THE most ridiculously designed character in the entire series (wtf is that thing on her head supposed to be) barring any other surprises. The rest of the cast isn't nearly as bad but invoking Suikoden Tierkreis flashbacks just reminds me that Suki DS was not a good game.
Also as stoked as I am over the 'new FE' news the whole 'FEDS2 not coming over or any other decent Wii/DS RPG for that matter' thing isn't motivating me very much either; in fact it's doing the opposite so far. Even with the 3DS's current lack of original quality software I can no longer believe that this game will leave Japan with any certainty.
