Nintendo E3 2010

The show started out with Reggie coming onto stage.  He wasted no time in getting straight to the point: Zelda!

He showed us a teaser video that gave us the title for the new game: SKYWARD SWORD!!!!

We were then shown a video of Mr. Miyamoto talking about how the new game will control.  He then came on screen and gave us a demo.  The sword control looks awesome!  There is 1:1 accuracy in the sword attacks. Also, he demonstrated how certain enemies can only be defeated with certain sword strikes.  The sword beam makes a reappearance.  By holding the sword to the sky, then slashing down quickly, one can fire the sword beam  He demoed many of link’s items, including Bow, Slingshot, bombs, and a new item called a beetle, it is a bug that players can fly around to pick up items, and an awesome whip.  They had some difficulty with some of the items, particularly the bow, something they blamed on interference.  However, it was still awesome!

Then he hit us with the bad news, it has been delayed until 2011.

They then mention a wii exclusive version of NBA Jam.

Next, we see a trailer for Mario Sports Mix (Coming 2011)  It contains many sports such as volleyball, dodgeball, and basketball. Honestly, I was not too impressed…but I am not a sports guy.

Next we see Wii Party, which looks like Mario Party but with Miis.

We then see a trailer for Just Dance 2.

Then they announce some good news for RPG fans, Golden Sun: Dark Dawn (DS).  I do not know anything about the series but the trailer looked good.

From there they move on to something amazing, A REMAKE OF GOLDENEYE FOR THE WII!  I love the original, and while the graphics for the new one do not look much better than the original, it still promises to be a great game.

We then see some footage of Epic Mickey, including some impressive 2d cut-scenes.  They demonstrate how to use the Thinner and Paint features, which did not impress me as much as I excerpted they would…but they did not show me enough to make a real judgment.  They demonstrated that jumping into a movie screen takes you to side scrolling levels (this is what I was waiting for!)  We see a bit of the Steamboat Willey level, then the video ends.

Next, we get another big announcement, a new Kirby game for the Wii! Kirby: Epic Yarn it is a sweet 2d sidecroller, that stars Kirby..but he is an outline made out of yarn?  In the trailer we see him pulling things and throwing then around with his Yarn, including the screen.  It is a really cute looking game, but I have no doubt that it will be just as epic as its title claims.  (Coming this fall)

Next we see a video of Dragon Quest IX, a multiplayer DS game set to debut on July 11th.

Next we see some awesome footage of Metroid: Other M, set for release on Aug 31st

We then get a new Donkey Kong Game for the Wii! Donkey Kong Country Returns is a great looking sidescroller.  I admit, I have never been a big fan of Donkey Kong, but this looks great!

The it happens: They move on to the Nintendo 3DS – The Top screen is 3d; The botton screen touch screen.  There is a swich that allows you to toggle the strength of the 3d effect, and even turn it off.  Also there is an Analog slide pad above the Dpad.  It is fully compatible with the DSi and can take photos in 3D.  Soon you will be able to buy 3D movies to watch on it, and new new hardware allows for Better Graphics.

The first launch title they announce for the 3DS? Kid Icarus: Uprising!  It looks amazing, and it is great to see a Kid Icarus game in the works.

They then mention that  Nintendogs + Cats is in the works

We then see a sideshow of a bunch of cool games coming to the 3DS.  The titles went by too fast for me to catch them all, but I did see: Mario Kart, Pilotwings, Animal Crossing, Batman, Resident Evil, and Assassins Creed.

And that was it.  The end of the best E3 confrence ever!


They announced a few new games for the 3DS after the conference including: Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Star Fox 64, and a new Paper Mario!   (I am so excited about the zelda one I can’t explain it!)

    Nintendo Did good this year. Compared to the last 3 E3s. It was really good. I still hate the Wii though.

      Im not a graphics whore but i honestly think The Wii should have been more powerful than it is. I look at it like this I basically paid 300 bucks for a system with old tech. I feel ripped off cause i dont get games the other consoles get. I still respect and admire Nintendo but I feel some of the choices they made with Wii were stupid thats it.

      (hope this dosen’t start a flame war)

        If I may, I paid $250 for the Wii about 5 months after it launched. Do I regret the decision? Not at all. In fact, it stands as my second favorite console to the PS2. The Wii in a sense has some old tech in the graphics and sound department, but they were ahead of their time with the motion sensing, and when it’s been done right and combined with Nintendo’s sheer talent, it’s unbeatable. Now we’re three years later and Sony and Microsoft are simply playing catch-up with the tech. No flame war intended, it’s simply my own statement of opinion.

    I do agree that it should be more powerful and they should have worked on the tech more, but Nintendo’s first party games tend to be the best out there so I still love them.

    I will admit there are many great games for the Wii out there, most of them great in the gameplay department and not really graphics. Dont get me wrong when it comes to games gameplay is most important and Nintendo has that down pat. I just dont think the damn this should have been so expensive. (I got mine a few months after launch, and i live in Canada so thats why i paid 300) And honestly im not really a fan of the motion controls in some games they work well and in others they are a complete nightmare. Alone in the Dark on Wii was terrible.
