E3 2010: Nintendo Overview
With E3 over, I figure I would do a brief overview for what Nintendo has in store for the public over the next while. Let’s begin shall we!
• Nintendo 3DS - All I can say about it is that I hope it fairs better than the last time they tried a 3D handheld (*cough* Virtual Boy *cough*). Other than that it looks like a DS…..IN 3D!
• Mario Sports Mix – Really, another sports compilation for the Wii? Get your
Wii-motes ready for some more wrist-breaking waggle action!
• Wii Party - Am I the only one who stopped caring about these Mario Party games after Mario Party 4?
• Goldeneye 007 Remake - I loved the original Goldeneye back in the N64 days, when I would go over to a friends’ house and we would play this for hours. As much as a remake with improved graphics and gameplay tweaks sounds fantastic, I’m still skeptical if this game will have the same impact now as it did 13 years ago (goddamn I’m old).
• Golden Sun: Dark Dawn - I never played a Golden Sun game, but my friend Josh (Crazy Quark) is ecstatic to see a new one come out. From the way he makes the series sound, I better pick it up!
• Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword - Knowing Nintendo’s track record with the Zelda franchise, it will definitely be a good game. Hopefully we will soon find out what new innovations and additions they will bring to Skyward Sword.
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
• Just Dance 2 - NEXT!
• Donkey Kong Country Returns - Another retro reboot from Nintendo that will hopefully be promising. I was impressed with New Super Mario Bros. Wii last year, although part of me believes this game would benefit better as a DS title just like New Super Mario Bros Wii.
• Epic Mickey - An interesting twist on Disney’s beloved mascot can’t wait to see more!
• Nintendogs plus Cats – It’s Nintendogs…….plus Cats, yeah.
• Kirby’s Epic Yarn - God what a dumb title, but after seeing footage the game it looks pretty fun. It’s good to see a Kirby game on a console seeing how it’s been seven years and the last one (Kirby Air Ride) was barely passable as a game.
• Kid Icarus for 3DS – So it’s been 20 years and they finally make a new Kid Icarus Game
• Sonic Colors – This hedgehog needs to be euthanized, does anyone want another 3D Sonic game after the last thousand failed attempts?
