Daily News - 13th and 14th September 2011 - 3DS News, PS Vita and Free Zelda: Four Swords

Heaps Of 3DS News Out Of Tokyo

The Tokyo Game Show is going on right now, and Nintendo had a press conference where loads of new 3DS stuff got announced, so much in fact that going into detail about them all would make this post mah-assive. So instead, here's a nice summary:

  • Nintendo Circle Pad Add-on Dated And Priced

It will come out on December 10th and be priced at ¥1,500, or $19 (which comes to just over £12... which is actually mentally cheap!)

  • 3DS Model In Pink Coming

It'll be out in Japan in October, no word on the rest of the world yet though

  • Nintendo To Add 3D Video Capture In November

The update will let you capture 3D footage and watch it on the 3DS. Definitely cool. The November update will also add new things to do if you've worn out all your Streetpass quests.

  • More Games Than Just Monster Hunter To Use Circle Pad Add-on

Games confirmed so far are Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D, Resident Evil: Revelations, Ace Combat 3D Cross Rumble, Dynasty Warriors VS and Kingdom Hearts 3D.

  • New Square Enix Game Coming To 3DS

The game is an RPG and will be called, believe it or not, Bravely Default: Flying Fairy

  • Kid Icarus Not Out This Year

Bit of a shocker this one, as the game was one of the first 3DS titles announced and probably odds on favourite to be available at launch. It'll be out in 2012.

  • Nintendo Announce 3DS Games Coming Out In the Next 12 Months

Zelda 25th Anniversary Present To Us Is Four Swords For Free!

The Legend Of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures is somewhat of a cult classic, a 4-player Zelda game that shouldn't of worked but did. The game's stumbling block was that everyone playing needed a GBA and a GBA Gamecube adapter in order to take part, but that stumbling block is gone with the downloadable DSiWare version of the game, coming out in the next few weeks. The game will support wireless multiplayer, have a new single player mode and be completely free. You can download the game between September 28th and February 20th. Enjoy! I know I will!

The game should work amazingly on handhelds

PS Vita Release Date Announced

For those of you excited about getting a Vita, Japan will have them on December 17th and had loads of ports announced for it: Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3, Street Fighter X Tekken, Final Fantasy X, Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection and Zone Of The Enders HD. Some new titles for the system were also announced: a new Lumines, Dynasty Warriors, Rayman Origins, Michael Jackson: The Experience and loads of Japanese titles.

Rayman: Origins looks great

And Finally...

Super Mario Ceremony 30th Anniversary Medley

This. Is. Awesome!
