As expected, Nintendo has shared the news about its first game for the 3DS. It is being by Project Sora. Well-known developer Masahiro Sakurai is in charge of the project. The final name is called Kid Icarus: Uprising.

Following an initial, albeit vague announcement in late March, Nintendo is finally pulling back the curtain on the successor to the DS.

In April, Professor Layton developer Level-5 announced their latest project in Famitsu called Time Travelers. The company only decided to share only a few select details about the game as well as a piece of art.

However, based on a comment posted on Jiro Ishii’s Twitter account, it seems likely that the title will receive a full unveiling at E3. Ishii, the game’s director, said that his preparations are complete and that it’s been ten years since he last visited Los Angeles. Time Travelers may very well be in development for the 3DS, as Level-5 CEO previously stated that it would be coming to “hardware that’s not yet in this world.”

– 3D camera
– Differently-designed screens
– The blogger says “the effect of the [3D] screen is amazing.”
– MP3/AAC hardware decode function
– Media player
– Will have a second, proprietary medium for 3DS games
– 3DS titles will fit on a card similar in size to a Compact Flash card
– May be able to put in 3DS and DS games in the same slot
– Might not have an analog stick
– Possible tilt sensor/accelerometer
– Might be as powerful as the Wii

You know, I really can’t wait until the 3DS is shown on Tuesday. All of the speculation and mock-ups are driving me crazy!


Destructoid is reporting that Nintendo will be launching a brand new Animal Crossing title alongside their upcoming handheld, the 3DS. A demo has allegedly been shown to developers and publishers, with an announcement prepared for next Tuesday. Naturally, Nintendo only provided a brief comment, explaining that the company “does not comment on rumors or speculation.” We’ll find out if there’s any truth to this rumor next week at E3.


“We note that Nintendo is widely expected to deliver a Wii refresh in 2011, well before Sony and Microsoft come to market with new platforms, although this is unlikely to represent the launch of a new generation. Instead, we expect Microsoft and Sony to leverage their growing online content and services platforms, along with new motion sensing controllers, and to a lesser extent 3D and Internet-enabled televisions, as three pillars for growth over the coming 2-3 years.” – Lazard Capital Markets analyst Colin Sebastian

“3DS could emerge as an E3 winner. Our conversations with industry contacts suggest the Nintendo 3DS is an impressive device, and is garnering support among third party developers.” – Lazard Capital Markets analyst Colin Sebastian

“We also expect Nintendo to announce enhancements to the online capabilities of the Wii and DS. While another price reduction on the Wii is unlikely at E3 this year, we believe it remains a possibility before the end of the year depending on unit sell-through trends.” – Lazard Capital Markets analyst Colin Sebastian

The most important piece of information out of these comments is the 3DS third-party support. It’s critical for the system to be supported by developers other than Nintendo right out of the gate. Hopefully we’ll hear about a bunch of third-party announcements next week.
