This information comes from FIFA 12 3D producer Matt Prior…

“We are not utilising StreetPass but we’ll have a day one kit and roster update to make sure we are fully authentic for the new season and SpotPass is one of the ways that you can download the update.”

“We looked into all of the unique 3DS features early in the development cycle but with our first foray into Fifa on the 3DS we wanted to make sure we got the fundamentals right and focused on getting the core game solid while at the same time innovating in key areas. We did this by developing a lot of content and modes and developing the gameplay with unique 3DS features which we have done with the addition of touchscreen shooting. We wanted to focus on getting those things right and creating a very solid and fun gameplay experience.”

SpotPass is something that I’ll always welcome in 3DS games. But it’s truly a shame that FIFA 12 won’t have any online multiplayer support. That’s been a feature that fans have been accustomed to seeing in sports games.

A Brand-New Adventure Featuring a Lineup of Unlikely Heroes and Deep Social Functionality

LOS ANGELES (May 31, 2011) – Square Enix, Inc., the publisher of SQUARE ENIX® interactive entertainment products in the Americas, today announced HEROES OF RUIN™, a brand-new adventure featuring four unlikely heroes brought together to form a fearsome alliance. Custom-built for Nintendo 3DS™, with support for online play and a wealth of social gaming features, players will find a new experience awaiting them every day.

“Using the Nintendo 3DS™’ StreetPass™ and SpotPass™ functionality, HEROES OF RUIN will offer extensive multiplayer elements,” said Mona Hamilton, vice president of marketing and public relations, Square Enix, Inc. “We hope to create a community of HEROES OF RUIN fans who play well beyond the single player campaign and experience the story in completely new ways.”


Why the right side of the 3DS is cut off in these images is beyond me, but at least we get to see both screens at once!

We’re just a little over a week from Nintendo’s E3 2011 press conference. With the event just on the horizon, industry analyst Michael Pachter has brought out his crystal ball to share some predictions for the event. Additionally, he’s offered some thoughts on Project Cafe’s launch.

All of the points below come from the latest episode of Giantbomb’s Bombcast.

– Hardware and a bunch of titles at E3
– Many games since Nintendo hasn’t shown much this year
– Date for Kid Icarus: Uprising
– Last showing for Zelda: Skyward Sword
– Nintendo will probably say that they’ll have a Mario title at launch
– Pachter believes the Vitality Sensor is dead
– Pachter echoes IGN’s report of Foxconn beginning production in October
– He also thinks they could produce one million consoles per month
– Japanese launch for Project Cafe in April
– Also possible that Nintendo could stockpile systems and launch simultaneously in September
