Link to the Past sequel and more at Nintendo Direct April 2013
Join Nintendo's Satoru Iwata as he announces a sequel to The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, plus a new Yoshi's Island and Mario Party, all for 3DS.
3DS sells WILL skyrocket for this game as I myself am a huge Zelda fan! As for the Wii U, I don't know what to say...
Finally, Nintendo come around to make a sequel of ALTTP in a graphical style that people had been wanting for years and now people are complaining that it's not a Majoras Mask remake. A new game is always better than a remake.
I really hate the Nintendo fan-base sometimes..
Makes me wonder whats left on the plate for E3 but also could mean some exciting news too. Just about anything Zelda is cool to me. But I do feel it needs a refresh to the series its gotten a bit stale as of late.
dont' understand why they didn't save most of this for E3.... sounds like their E3 presentation will be mostly rehash.
Ah! Corporate suits talking about video games trying to deliver jokes.
Never gets old.
He had white gloves on now LAUGH dammit or you're fired
Mario is definitely mass market. I would also argue that Minecraft and Call of Duty are mass market.
Congratulations Nintendo....on solving NONE of the problems that are crippling this Wii U console of yours. But at least now I know the "launch" title Pikmin finally has a release date....
If the ALTTP sequel has normal controls, many buys. If it has stylus nonsense like the two DS Zeldas...no thanks.
what are you doing marketing games for the 3ds when you still have like no games for the wii u. and you wonder why it isnt selling good
Mario Sunshine 2
A Pokemon RPG that makes use of Skylander-like toys
These would be console sellers. By Pokemon RPG I do not mean a pathetic mediocre game like Pokemon Rumble U.
Things to buy on 3DS....
Link to the Past sequel
still have to grab fire emblem too.
In order for Nintendo to remain a competent player in the video game market, it really needs to create and effectively market a game that will use the full potential of the Wii-U and appeal to every class of gamer. Also, it should provide third-party developers with tools that will make it easy to create games that will also take advantage of every aspect of Wii-U engineering.
The third option would be to release and market another version of the Wii-U that can rival the tech specs of the upcoming Playstation 4 and win the awe of gamers and tech-savvy users. It's an expensive route, but if it can keep Nintendo in the game and help them to get ahead, I would see it as an investment.
Wow... All i have to say is nintendo you failed and fell HARD. What happened to you? Your not the same nintendo I grew up with as a kid. You are a pathetic shell of what once were. Nothing shown here even appeals to me in the SLIGHTEST. Boring games, and what the hell is the deal with making link look like phantom hourglass. He looks so stupid. Whatever, nintendo lost me as a customer a long time ago.
@BigDumbSpoonman hahaha i lol as well
@chappy_man You think Skyward Sword was stale? You're entitled to your own opinion. I'm just making sure you mean what you're saying.
@chappy_man Probably zelda WW showing more of that remake off. I hope they are showing smash bro, mario 3D mario kart game and I hope a ton of 3rd party support.
@Konuvis They were getting the 3ds out of the way probably going to focus on the wii u for the E3. They do have limited amount of floor space for these things.
@Saketume The only funny thing about this movie is Iwata's Engrish, and even that gets old after 5 minutes.
@Saketume He rose from a dev to run the company rather then coming from like Harvard with no experience on how games at least work.
@Saketume I hope you're not talking about Iwata because the guy developed Balloon Fight and would kick both our asses at it.
@bgranli lol I think he's gotten a lot better.
@simomate really people really need to listen and read. almost makes me wonder if they can even read at all
@ewjiml They recenetly announced a lot of games for the Wii U... not every nintendo direct needs to be dedicated to the Wii U.
@Crazyguy105 ill probably spam boo bells to steal people money and stars
@Crazyguy105 I remember playing mario party once or twice on the N64 with two of my best friends. After an hour or so, coins and stars stolen between us and so, we wanted to kill each other.
Do you imagine what would happen our planet if Mario Party had online? That thing would be a weapon of mass destruction, the beginning of WW3 at least. Do you want us all dead?
@OMEGA246810 You forget that Monolith still has X coming, as well as Smash Bros. E3 is going to be amazing this year.
@xeoneex66 nothing happend nitindo is just the same but its now not as attracitive as when we were kids
probably because you are older now, and Nintendo platform aims for ages around 5-15. i know if i was still a kid i would be asking my mum to buy me one
@xeoneex66 it is nintendo? what did you wanted?? call of duty 3D loooool.. the new zelda game looks really amazing, and it is supposed to look like that because it is a sequel to a link to the past.. if you take a link to the past and put 3D graphics on it, it would look like this derp..
@UndertowEthan Still makes no sense to me, unless all of this is coming out before July.
That's always a plus I'll give you that. I only judged him for what he did in this video though and I haven't changed my opinion on that.
Don't be too sure I was raised on old school games. Balloon fight is just a Joust rip off. I was good at joust.
Anyway I'm glad he's not a comedian.
@Elaisse @Konuvis Yeah but that's why they need to be in contention. I mean yes they don't have a new console but a new console is not a guaranteed A+. It'll buzz for sure but it they offcially announce, always-online, no retro compatibiliy, blocked used games or whatever everyone will scream. Whereas Nintendo has no console but if they had announced Earthbound!, LttP sequel!... I mean these are huge announcements. But hey who knows, I guess we'll see in July :)
@Saketume haha, do you watch GameCenterCX? Iwata kicked Arino's ass at the game. Not that that's saying much...
@xeoneex66You must be such a mature boy for being angry at games that are fun and designed for kids and rated E
@ZexionLuv Wow, nintendo fan monkey here. Hit a nerve I guess since he has to insult me in such a CHILDISH manner. Nicely done prepubescent little boy. Ignoring this kid, don't feel the trolls boys and girls!
