Nintendo will be streaming a pre-Tokyo Game Show press conference specifically to announce brand new Nintendo 3DS software on September 13th in Japan. We will be live-blogging the presser, which may or may not be in Japanese, starting at 11PM EST on September 12th.
Though the presentation is less than a week away, Gematsu is reporting, from various sources, on a whole slew of games to be released. One such game has been backed by leaked Famitsu magazine scans that we posted this morning; that game seems to be Monster Hunter 3 G. But wait, there’s more… according to Gematsu, here’s some of what we may see at the press conference next week:
- New Monster Hunter exclusively for 3DS with support for online play.
- New Yoshi horizontal side-scroller from Kirby’s Epic Yarn developer Good-Feel.
- New game from the WarioWare developer.
- New Etrian Odyssey.
- Hatsune Miku 3DS, with all the songs from Project DIVA and its sequel.
- DS’s The Silver Case, from Grasshopper Manufacture, has been moved to 3DS.
- eShop demo announcement. [Super Mario 3D Land] will have a demo.
- The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords release date announcement for eShop. It will be free.
- The latest project from Alchemist, developer of Umineko, for 3DS.
- A fifth Ace Attorney, including an Edgeworth scenario.
- Multiplatform God Eater for 3DS and PlayStation Vita.
If there’s actually a side-scrolling Yoshi title slated for the Nintendo 3DS, color me extremely excited. That is, of course, assuming that it’s being developed in the same vein as the unbelievable Yoshi’s Island series that you see pictured above.
I can’t think of a better, more beautifully crafted world to dive into on the Nintendo 3DS than that of Yoshi’s Island.
Moreover, fans should be excited about new games from the folks behind WarioWare, as well as a brand new Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney title. If Nintendo actually does pull of a crazy roster of unveilings including the software you see above, people will more than likely have to re-examine the notion that the 3DS lacks great software.
Will this be Nintendo’s next step in righting their newest portable hardware’s failings?
