It’s Nintendo’s turn in the spotlight, and I’m sure the moment many have long awaited. Today we see the long rumored, even longer awaited unveiling of Nintendo’s HD console. There’s nothing more I can say to build the tensio so let’s start the show!
What a surprise, Nintendo announced at today’s Game Developers Conference that it is working on a new 3D Super Mario game for the 3DS handheld. It will likely be a full 3D game rather than a 2D game with 3D backgrounds like New Super Mario Bros, because it is being developed by the same team behind both Super Mario Galaxy games for the Wii.
Seems like Kirby isn’t alone in his sentiment for the Guitar Hero franchise and it’s recent demise at the hands of owner Activision. So much so they have reversed course… well, only slightly.
Nintendo’s most famous developer, Shigeru Miyamoto, is working on a new Super Mario Bros. title for the 3DS. The game will be designed specifically to take advantage of the handheld’s technology.
The update of the Nintendo 64 classic for the 3DS, Zelda: Ocarina of Time, will have a more user-friendly interface. Just don’t expect a new dungeon or any other extra content. But even from these videos from Kotaku, the improved graphics are readily apparent, crisper and more detailed than the N64 version.
Nintendo has announced it will ship more than 30 3DS titles between the handheld’s launch on March 27 and the beginning of this years E3 on June 7.
At Nintendo World 2011, Hideki Konno demonstrated some gameplay from the long awaited Kid Icarus sequel, Kid Icarus: Uprising. It is actually the third game in the series but the first in 20 years.
Eich! Mein jawbone!
Just when you thought WWII games were on sabbatical, think again. Of course Captain America: Super Soldier is not your typical WWII game. Captain America was specifically created to battle Nazis, and Super Soldier is a third-person adventure in which he gets to face his archenemy, Red Skull.
