3DS - Zelda Confirmed
In Zelda news on Tuesday 15 June 2010
While Nintendo showed off the next title in the Zelda franchise at their press conference, it was the reveal of the 3DS that really stole the show. A new DS with a glasses-free 3D, widescreen top screen, vastly improved graphics, a motion sensor, a gyro sensor, a 3D camera, so you can take photos in 3D, an anologue stick… it goes on. And if that wasn’t enough of a bombshell as it was, president Satoru Iwata showed off the first 3DS game - a new Kid Icarus title, which fans have been demanding for years (view the trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RWp2MXmFRnQ). Nintendo really ended the show with a bang. While the console doesn’t have a release date yet, their swiss army knife of a handheld is officially in the wanted list of many a gamer.
But one of the smaller hints about the console was in this wacky “trailer” for the console It involves Iwata and Shigeru Miyamoto getting sucked into a DS and getting chased by Bowse… actually, you’re never going to believe me, you need to watch it for yourself (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4oLvWE7xUAM). Notice the Zelda imagery? I think we can assume that there will be a Zelda game for it. Well, that goes without saying, but this counts as a semi-confirmation of that fact. Is the game being worked on right now? The 3DS is still a while away, so we will need to wait to find out.
So, who wants a 3DS? I do.
