Nintendo E3 2011: 3DS News

June 10, 2011

Nintendo showed huge support for the 3DS at this years E3 with tons of fantastic first party titles, 4 of which are Mario games! I’ll do full posts on most of these later.

The Tanooki suit is back and it’s coming this holiday! I hope we see some flying action soon though. Looks incredibly fun. Love the possibility of 3D effects.

Just watch the trailer. More of what we’ve come to love plus so much more. Being an Animal Crossing fan you notice so many new things in this trailer. I can’t wait.

Luigi is back and he’s gonna fight some ghosts early-ish next year! This trailer looks particularly pretty (although I’ve heard the frame rates on the demos are, at the moment, slow). I really want to see this in 3D!

Star Fox 64 3D looks stelar. The multiplayer looks especially compelling. The release date (strangely enough) is September 11th of this year.

Kid Icarus: Uprising was shown with some incredible looking multiplayer at E3 this year. It looks to be quite fun (although I’ve heard the control scheme to be a little awkward). It is coming this holiday season.

Also The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D is coming on the 19th of this month. It will be a good chance for many to pick up this beloved classic.

Paper Mario just looks like it would be a joy to view. The new popup book style is very compelling. The release date is TBA currently.

Overall, Mario Kart 3D’s trailer looked the best to me. Just watch it to see all the new fun things you’ll be doing if you get it this holiday season.

Yes, this holiday is going to be filled with excellent 3DS games. This is quite the list from all worlds of Nintendo. Which game looks the best to you?


Wii Price Drop on May 15th Confirmed, Nintendo Select Titles Confirmed

May 3, 2011

Nintendo is now dropping the price of the Wii to $150 and to go along with is are lowering the price on a bunch of games and bundling the Wii with Mario Kart.

This new line of Nintendo Select titles will include Animal Crossing, Super Smash Bros. Brawl (rumored),┬áMario Super Sluggers, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, and Wii Sports. They have a rumored price of $20, but I doubt this is true considering Wii Sports is in there. Although I don’t understand the removal of Wii Sports from the bundle (really Nintendo?) this seems like a fun way to prepare for project Cafe. Go here for all the images.
