There’s plenty of “Skyward Sword” show floor demo videos online, but this one from GameTrailers is the best. Finally you can see the controls work much better than what was shown at the E3 press conference, proving there was technical interference.
Unfortunately, as was revealed yesterday, Skyward Sword will not be releasing this year, but sometime in 2011. That kinda sucks. In the meantime, stay tuned to Zelda Chronicles for more coverage and our opinions.
G4TV will also be airing the show live on TV at 9:00 am PT, but in our experience their online stream isn’t that great. Also, GameSpot screwed up on us yesterday during the Microsoft press conference so we don’t recommend even trying them. The links we provided should be plenty. If one stream doesn’t work or is lagging, try another!
Be sure to check back to Zelda Chronicles for updates, our reactions to the live show, and maybe even some exclusive content from E3!
Gamespot has posted the E3 2010 Showfloor map plan, and Zelda Wii can be found by hovering over the Nintendo panel (a picture is available to the right). We already knew Zelda Wii would be revealed at E3 2010, but we were not quite sure on how it would be. Chances are that Nintendo will reveal a trailer during the Nintendo press conference (at 9:00 am PT on June 15th) and have a demo version of the game playable at the Nintendo booth. Don’t take this as 100% confirmed just yet, but seeing as how Gamespot is a legit source we definitely think it’s probably true. Check out the floor plan for yourself at Gamespot!
Today is June 8th, 2010. In exactly one week Nintendo will take the stage at E3 and unveil not only their new portable console (the 3DS) and the Wii vitality sensor, but also their mysterious new MotionPlus-exclusive Zelda game for Wii.
As one more (and probably last) reminder, Nintendo’s media briefing is June 15th at 9:00 a.m. PT. That’s pacific time, so click here to find out exactly when that is in your time zone.
You don’t need to be at E3 in person to experience Nintendo’s announcements as they happen, because Nintendo has setup an official website where you can watch the show live. Just visit http://e3.nintendo.com on June 15th at 9 am PT and you’re good to go! Of course we’ll be reporting all the Zelda news as soon as possible with our own reactions too, so don’t forget to visit Zelda Chronicles that day as well.
To pass the time until some big E3 news or leaks, here’s a few Zelda related news stories from the past week that we didn’t think warranted a full separate post:
Are you excited for E3 2010? You should be, because you won’t have to visit G4TV this year! Nintendo has decided to officially stream their E3 2010 show for free via their website. Although many other sites like IGN and G4 will be streaming the conference, we bet the official Nintendo site will be faster and more reliable with no commercials or “witty” banter before the show.
Are you excited to hear all the news from Nintendo’s E3 Presentation but can’t make it to Los Angeles? Nintendo.com has you covered. The website is setting up a special portal for fans around the world to watch full start-to-finish video coverage of the event.
Nintendo’s E3 Presentation will begin at 9 a.m. Pacific on Tuesday, June 15. Just visit e3.nintendo.com to get a front-row seat to all of Nintendo’s announcements.
IGN has setup a new feature in which everyone can submit their very own question to Shigeru Miyamoto himself which he might answer at E3 2010. However, they will only hand pick a select few of the hundreds if not thousands of questions. You will need an IGN account (it’s free to register) in order to submit your question. For a better chance of your question being asked, make it a unique one (nothing generic like when will Zelda Wii release or any similar type of question).
Our question: Are there any chances that a classic Legend of Zelda title could be remade into a 3D environment, say “The Adventure of Link” …maybe?
Our affiliate, Zelda Informer, is reporting that anyone who has been invited to this year’s E3 has been notified that the Nintendo conference (which starts at 9 am pacific time on June 15th) will last two hours. In the past couple years Nintendo was always given just one hour to present new games and hardware.
We know Zelda Wii and the Nintendo 3DS will be revealed this year. Is it possible another Zelda game will be shown when the 3DS is presented? I guess we’ll find out soon enough seeing how E3 is just under a month away!
GoNintendo has learned that the official date for Nintendo’s 2010 E3 media briefing is June 15th. Although no specific time was given, they speculate that they will present sometime before Sony’s showing which is later that day. If past E3s are any indication, you’ll probably want to wake up early (or not go to sleep!)
Personally, I can’t wait for Zelda’s big reveal (which has been hinted to be at E3), but I’d be lying if I said that’s all I care about. I’m a huge Nintendo fanboy so any new details on Pikmin, The Last Story or Retro Studio’s new project, and of course the 3DS will make me giddy. Stay tuned to Zelda Chronicles for news and our thoughts on this year’s E3.
Nintendo of Japan has officially announced the successor to the Nintendo DS, the Nintendo 3DS, a handheld in which 3D effects can be achieved without the need for special 3D glasses. The device will feature backwards compatibility with all previous DS and DSiWare games, and will be detailed at this year’s E3 on June 15th. No specific release date was given, although a Holiday 2010 release seems very likely. Press release and thoughts after the break. Continue reading →
In case you haven’t heard, Nintendo is planning on releasing something called the Wii Vitalty Sensor this year, which was first unveiled at last year’s E3 to much confusion. Well, if you haven’t cared about it yet, now’s your chance.
In an exclusive interview with Now Gamer, Shigeru Miyamoto spoke about the prospect of incorporating the Wii Vitality Sensor into a game like Zelda. The interview is after the break. Continue reading →
IGN spoke to Nintendo of America’s president Reggie Fils-Aime about a number of different subjects relating to Nintendo at GDC this past week, and in the interview he was asked about Zelda Wii, and when we can expect to get our hands on it. Not a lot was revealed, but it’s something nonetheless.
IGN: However, I did, of course, read recent comments from Cammie Dunaway in which she very strongly hinted that we would see the new Wii Zelda unveiled at E3 and released before the end of the year. What’re your thoughts on that?
