Nintendo E3 2010 Overview


Here is a blog of E3 Nintendo Press Confrence from GA. Were not there just watching it like everyone else. Here are the highlights.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward sword was presented. Miyamoto shows the gameplay live being translated by Bill Trinen. He uses the Wii remote and Nunchuck as a sheild and sword as he plays as Link. It looked good and the graphics aren't bad for a Wii game.
You can raise your shield with the nunchuk and use the remote to swing your sword.

This time around, the sword control more closely mimics the motion of the remote.You'll have to monitor enemy positions and use vertical and horizontal swipes to break through their defenses. Red Steel 2 was a pretty fun game, right?
Blocking is similarly active, with shield bashes knocking rocks back at Octoroks. This slightly more complex combat could be a nice change for the series. Item selection is done by pressing B and cycling through items in your virtual pocket by moving the remote in a circular pattern.

 Link has a little beetle buddy in Skyward Sword who he can release. Players can then take control of the bug and fly around the world, picking up items. 
Link has a whip, too. The weapon isn't very useful against enemies, but switching between weapons is supposed to be quick.

Nintendo talked about sports games now, dropping names like Pro Evolution Soccer, MLB 2K10, and NBA Jam.
They showed a trailer for a new Wii sports game with Mario and other characters like Peach, Luigi, etc. it's titled Mario Sports Mix coming out next year.

They digused critics who said Wii sales were slowing and that casual players don't buy games. They are wrong, he says. Games like Mario Kart and New Super Mario Bros. Wii are attracting new players, and Nintendo calls games like those "bridge" games.
Wii Party is the next bridge game. It looks like Mario Party without Mario. It's another one of those games where your charcters are your Miis.

Next they talked about Just Dance . The game sold a lot of copies for Ubisoft. Just Dance 2 is coming, with more than 40 tracks and the "hottest dance moves." Up to 8 players can play together.

Then they talked about a new GoldenSun game for DS. They showed a quick trailer.
Then they brought up a new GoldenEye game. It's exclusive to the Wii, with four-player splitscreen and all. Paintball mode, too.They interview a few gamers about their childhood GoldenEye experiences. It's coming from Activision this holiday season.
Then Warren Spector came out to talk about Epic Mickey.
He said the game brings you into a Disney Wasteland. Then he showed gameplay from Adventureland. He talked about how players can use the game's paint thinner to create or destroy the world, depending on how they see fit.
The game looks great. I mean the best game in the confrence to me so far great. I can't wait to get it. You can evn play as mickey from the golden days.

 Then they talked about Kirby for DS.  Kirby's Epic Yarn looks like it's stitched together from felt, yarn, and cloth.

 It comes out this fall!

After a quick talk about Dragon Quest IX, coming out in 26 days, They finally introduce Metroid: Other M. It comes out August 31 and looks cool. I want it for Wii for sure.
They introduced a new Donkey Kong game that looked extremely fun.
We've got vines. We've got bananas. We've got barrels. It looks great! And... it's coming out this holiday. Oh yeah, it's called Donkey Kong Country Returns.

Nintendo 3DS is the name of the new 3D handheld. They started to criticize current 3D tech, particularly the glasses.

They showed a 3D retrospective, from Viewmasters to red and blue glasses to Avatar. It ends with a woman taking off the glasses.
They rolled it onto the stage with a bunch of smoke. Then Iwata went on the stage.
They showed a analog stick and Slide Pad. If it's anything like the NES Max controller, they need to reevaluate things. There's also a gyroscope and motion sensors. And two cameras! You can take photos in 3D.
Nintendo will be partnering with movie studios to release Hollywood films in 3D for the 3DS. Thay will be partnering with companies like Disney, Warner Bros., and DreamWorks.
They announced Kid Icarus Uprising is coming to the 3DS.

Nintendogs and Cats is coming also. There will be a new Metal Gear game, Saints Row, Ridge Racer, Batman, Kindgom Hearts, and EA Sports releases.
Thay showed clips of how developers reacted to the 3DS. And...THEY ALL LOVE IT!
Then they showed a new Resident Evil game, according to Capcom's Keiji Inafune.

They just showed some really weird commercials with Miyamoto, Iwata, and Reggie experiencing 3D.

And there you have it. Nintendo's E3 Press Confrence 2010.
