The image above is a concept for a Game Boy Advance predecessor from 1995. Compared to the DSi, you can tell that it was rather large. Design Director Masato Kuwahara, at GDC last night, said, “There’s no way you’re fitting that thing in your pocket. You would be shocked to see how big that device was.” Other issues plagued the prototype including the graphics engine performance problems.


This was another prototype Kuwahara revealed. It is a touch-screen adapter for the Game Boy Color, though the software development team did not think highly of it because the LCD screen lacked a backlight. Miyamoto was interested in the adapter when used on the GBA SP yet it was never released. Still, Kuwahara believes that his prototype “led to the appearance of the Nintendo DS.”

Reggie Fils-Aime, President of Nintendo of America, finally took a few moments to answer questions relating to Wii MotionPlus. He has commented on the release date of Wii MotionPlus and spoke on how Wii MotionPlus’ capability “is far in excess” than what Nintendo had demonstrated at E3.

“We haven’t announced the full spring line-up… And it feels like winter in Seattle right now…You know we don’t comment on rumor and speculation [Grand Slam Tennis/MotionPlus bundle]…The status of Motion Plus is consistent with what we talked about at E3. “Wii Sports Resort” looks great. I’ve played it…I played it two weeks ago. It looks phenomenal…[Better than it was at E3]…The level of full motion capability is far in excess of what we showed at E3.”
