Let's get ready for one of the most anticipated press conferences of all of E3, Nintendo. We are about to get going, so sit back, and enjoy.
10:15: A bunch of girls with 3DSs chained to their belts storm the auditorium for those in attendance to look at. Whether you play with the DS or the girl is up to you. And we're out. One conference left. See you there.
10:13: Reggie's back out for some closing statements. He's hoping that every person found at least one thing that they're excited for.
10:09: A list of third-party developers and some of their games: Konami - Metal Gear, THQ - Saints Row, Warner Bros. - Batman, Activision - DJ Hero, Capcom - Resident Evil. Level 5, Atlus, and Harmonix were also listed. All of these untitled games will be coming in 3D.
10:07: A 3D version of Nintedogs is coming, and cats will be added to the updated game.
10:06: If I don't see a vitality sensor soon, I'm going to be very disappointed.
10:04: The 3DS can communicate with other 3DSs when in sleep mode. I don't know what purpose that serves, but I guess that's cool.
10:02: Kid Icarus: Uprising is the full title. It looks pretty action intensive. Graphically impressive, particularly for a handheld.
10:02: Project Sora is a game developed specifically for the 3DS. That title... KID ICARUS!
10:00: The 3DS will be able to show 3D movies, but they are not announcing any plans right now as to when or how.
9:58: Two cameras means you can take photos, and view them in 3D. The handheld also implements an analog control stick.
9:55: 3.5 inch widescreen display on the top screen. There's a slider to adjust whether or not you want the 3D on.
9:55: Satoru Iwata is here to show off the handheld.
9:52: Here comes the 3DS.
9:51: DKC: Returns due out this holiday.
9:51: It really looks like more of the same, but that's totally a good thing.
9:50: Hey, it's Donkey Kong Country for the Wii. That's a thing.
9:48: DQ9 coming July 11. Metroid: Other M footage begins, and looks pretty good.
9:45: Dragon Quest IX will have 120 mini-quests, 900 items, 300 monsters, and infinite treasure maps that are randomly generated. There will multiplayer questing with up to three friends.
9:43: Kirby's Epic Yarn. Kirby is literally a piece of thread. Every thing in the game is made from stichwork, or at least made to look like it is.
9:42: Reggie calls himself a hardened gamer, and claims that Kirby is due for a return. Sweet?
9:40: Travelling between worlds is done by playing a brief side-scrolling level between the two locations.
9:39: There will be three different zones to play in the game: action, platform, and RPG.
9:37: The wasteland looks pretty interesting. You'll be able to dynamically change the game world to make a difference. How you interact with the world and characters will influence how the game plays.
9:35: Perhaps I spoke too soon. Up next is a look at Epic Mickey.
9:33: Reggie claims the game will revolutionize multiplayer. Sure it will. Due out this holiday.
9:32: And now a more official look at the previously leaked Goldeneye trailer. It's going to star Daniel Craig instead of Pierce, but looks to be the exact same story. Split-screen and online multiplayer.
9:31: The game will be out this holiday season.
9:30: Golden Sun: Dark Dawn revealed as the full title for the new DS Golden Sun game mentioned last year.
9:28: Here we go with Just Dance 2. I guess Zelda and Mario were the only games they had to appease the "core."
9:28: I know there's a market for this kind of game, but this looks pretty boring and standard.
9:27: And now the next big "bridge" title: Wii Party. " Redefining multiplayer fun for everyone."
9:25: I think Reggie is making up a lot of these statistics concerning who's playign the Wii, how many people want to buy a Wii, or that more people spend more time with their Wii than other consoles.
9:24: Nope, it's Mario Sports Mix. Basketball, dodgeball, hockey, and volleyball.... out next year.
9:22: Now there's a new Mario sports title coming. And it's Mario Volleyball?
9:21: Reggie's now talking about sim versus arcade sports titles.
9:18: Now they're claiming the wifi is interfering with the operation of the game. Oh, and the game won't be out until 2011.
9:16: You'll be able to control a beetle to fly around and scout the area and collect items.
9:14: The demo's not going very smoothly, as there are occasional lapses in proper movements that correlate in the game not doing what it's told. Still, the game looks like it will be fun to play if it works right.
9:12: I've got to say, the HUD looks a little crowded, especially for a Zelda game. That, of course, is a very minor complaint. Forgot to mention the game will use Motion Plus.
9:09: Miyamoto is not very good at his own game. He keeps getting hit by enemies. Spin attacks and charge attacks all have special motions to pull off.
9:06: And Miyamoto burst through the screen to show us all how to play the game properly.
9:05: The sword and sheild will act independently, and will be mapped to the remote and nunchuck.
9:04: And here comes the Zelda info we've all been waiting for. A new trailer kicks off, showing some direct gameplay, which looks pretty cool. The game is Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.
9:02: And here's Reggie. He's talking about how headlines are all about technology, but he wants to adjust that perspective.
