Zelda DS the phantom hourglass



GDC iwata wrap up


Iwata's keynote was a slightly anticlimatic one for all those who had been expecting a full blowout of the Revolution, with new details, game footage, etc. etc.

However, it was a very interesting speech, with the following things announced or expanded upon:

1. Pepsi-Nintendo DS Co-operation

Pepsi have made an agreement with Nintendo to promote the upcoming Brain Age series in North America by putting ads for it on bottles of Pepsi soft drinks and bottled waters.

2. Brain Age Series

Iwata spoke extensively about Brain Age to begin with, talking about its origins. He says that the game's development was a result of people wanting more from games or being bored with the industry's current products.

Nintendo consulted with brain-professor-clever-guy Professor Kawashima during the development of the game. Development of the first game was finished in 90 days, showing how short the development time can be yet still with an interesting and innovative product.

3. Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection

Iwata talked about the Nintendo WFC's amazing 1 million unique users - on only 18 weeks. He states that it took competitors (i.e. Microsoft with Xbox LIVE) over a year to reach this level. 29 million gaming connections made so far.

He also stated how the intention of the service is to make online gaming like playing with friends at home - easy, simple, secure. He also states that whilst some people wish to play with strangers, friends are important too - the example of someone cutting all your trees down in Animal Crossing was given as an example. Nintendo WFC's internal codename during development was "Project Houseparty".

4. Developer Competitions

Bill [of Nintendo of America], the director of the GDC, a G4TV host and Will Wright played games of Brain Age and Metroid Prime Hunters on stage. Bill won at both games.

5. Zelda DS!

To be called The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, the title is to be released later this year and will have cel-shaded 3D graphics, action on the bottom screen, and maps on the top screen. It will have interactive puzzles that use the touch screen, which will also be used for map and menu navigation.

6. Virtual Console - Not Only Nintendo!

In what may be a counter to Sony's legacy PS1 & PS2 game download service on the PS3, Iwata announced that Nintendo is expanding the range of the planned Virtual Console service.

As previously rumoured, users will be able to download games from not only Nintendo's back catalogue, but also from a selection of 1000 Sega Genesis/MegaDrive games and games from NEC's TurboGrafx system.

"We've got the wolf moving around quite naturally in gameplay, and the player's feeling of moving as the wolf is incredibly natural. Just a little fine-tuning, and the wolf will be ready for playable prime time at E3."

assistant director of the Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess Makoto Miyanaga

Iwata GDC speach tommorow

tommorow there is set to be a speach by the president of nintendo Satora Iwata <<<<. the Games Developers Conference is one of the top 3 gaming conferences of the year (the others being E3 and TGS) and it was last year that satora revieled a lovely zelda video, so there is high hopes for his speach this year. i have decided to make the same predictions as reggies speach back in febuary so here is an edited list;

  1. The success of the DS and the Wi-Fi connection- I am sure he will bost about sales figures and the success of new inovative franchises (nintendogs, brain training) attracting new audiences- chance:99.99%
  2. Targets for the Revolution- may admitt Gamecube sales are a dissapointment and set sales targets for the revolution - chance:70%
  3. Anounce the real name of the Revolution- answer the question that is on everyones lips- chance:70%(has been rumored)
  4. Show Revolution footage- May show another Video like the the one at TGS with people using the controler or a clipit of a game or two such as super smash bros, metroid prime 3 and the long awaited Mario 128- chance:50%
  5. will anounce DSLite release details for the U.S.- although we already have suspision to believe that it will be released mid May, it it likely that it will be officialy reveiled on thursday-chance:90%
  6. the revolutions "other feature"- we know there is something yet to be reveiled thanks to shigeru but I think they will save it for E3 in May-chance:20%
  7. Revolution games anounced- possibly some titles from third parties will be anounced- chance:35%
  8. will show a video of developers comments on the revolution-like at TGS the lack of game footage may be compensated by some possitive comments - chance:65%
  9. will reveil that the revolution will play biscuits and make toast- ???-chance:0.00000000000000000000000000056%
  10. will show some new zelda footage showing some revolution compatability features- chance:50%

any way here are the times and i will post anything i hear;
10:30 am California, Nevada, British Columbia (PST)

11:30 am Arizona, New Mexico, Alberta (MST)

12:30 pm Louisiana, Arkansas, Manitoba (CST)

zelda info?

What’s the latest on Twilight Princess?
“I would say that we are progressing well with completing it,” says Miyamoto. “And one of the most important features is that, because Revolution can run GameCube software, when you play Twilight Princess on Revolution you can take advantage of the Revolution controller.

So with the new george forman playstation 3 coming out in a confirmed november, will the revolution be launching along side Zelda TP to combat this?
