Unfortunately due to events beyond my control I missed the Nintendo conference. Sorry about that. However, here's a list of the highlights.
New Zelda (Skyward Sword) with emphasis on Motion Plus swordplay. Graphical style is somewhere between that of Wind Waker and Twilight Princess, with an adult Link in a cel-shaded environment.
Metroid: Other M will be released August 31st.
Retro Studios have been working on a new 2D platformer, relaunching the Donkey Kong Franchise, entitled Donkey Kong Country Returns.
Also in the 2D platform arena- Kirby: Epic Yarn looks rather lovely, the entirity of the environments and characters appearing to be stiched from fabric and allowing interaction with the gameworld based on this.
Epic Mickey is coming along nicely- lots of old Disney characters apparantly, and reaction has been far more positive than that of the very abstract looking sreens from a while back. The demo showed a more populated 3D environment, and a black and white classic-Disney-style 2D section.
3DS was shown, with one 3D screen and one touch screen- looks very similiar to the traditional DS design, has a 3D camera, apparantly, as well as a slider-analogue type thing.
Got to our website here http://www.7outof10.co.uk/3ds/24/03/2010/ for a look at this really clever piece of kit. With a Resident Evil & Starfox game planned for release the 3DS will be huge.
Mario Sports Mix revealed. Hockey, Basketball, Volleyball, Dodgeball. Coming 2011
Goldeneye. Split-screen, MP. Developed by Eurocom. November 2010.
3D versions of Nintendogs & Cats
Kid Icarus Uprising. Looked very action packed. Full 3D with some flight sections.
