164w ago - Earlier today we saw a fresh Metroid: Other M video, and now Nintendo has made available a new Super Mario Galaxy 2 Wii trailer.
The video comes courtesy of cortjezter via YouTube, and is meant to coincide with a recent play session at Nintendo's office, which reveals footage of the new Rock Mario power-up, a "Light Yoshi" power-up, and some new levels.
Gameplay will be similar to the first Super Mario Galaxy, with a focus on platforming based on and around 3D planets with varying sizes and landscapes. The protagonist Mario will be able to ride the bipedal dinosaur Yoshi, who can use his tongue to swing across gaps, as well as eat different fruits that give him different powers, such as speed boosts, the ability to inflate like a balloon, or reveal secret paths.
While the player retains the ability to collect Star Bits with the blue Star Pointer from the first game, the Star Pointer is replaced by a red dot when riding Yoshi, which allows the player to aim and control his tongue. This can be used for swinging off objects, pulling levers or, like in previous games, swallowing enemies and spitting them out.
Old mechanics will be returning from Super Mario Galaxy, such...
164w ago - Today Nintendo has updated the Metroid.com Web site with a brand new trailer video featuring gameplay from the upcoming Wii game Metroid: Other M.
The video can be seen below courtesy of nintendolife via YouTube, with only a few months to go until the game is released in the US (this summer) followed by Europe later in the year.
The game takes place between Super Metroid and Metroid Fusion. Other M opens with a cinematic showing the final battle with Mother Brain at the conclusion of Super Metroid.
After escaping the exploding Planet Zebes, Samus awakens on a Galactic Federation ship. After leaving, she receives a distress call from a dormant "Bottle Ship", which is floating a short distance away from a Federation vessel.
Upon stepping into the ship, Samus encounters a group of GF soldiers, led by Anthony Higgs, who fought alongside her before she left the GF military. She also meets Adam Malkovich, who used to be her commanding officer when she was in the Federation Army.
Something happened that caused Samus to leave the army, causing Adam to be standoffish and guarded, calling Samus an "outsider" and ordering his team not to reveal any details of their mission to her.
165w ago - At E3, Nintendo will be introducing new hardware, the Nintendo 3DS, which is described as allowing games to be "enjoyed with 3D effects without the need for any special glasses."
It is not yet known how the 3D effects will work, but it is possible that it could work like this Japan-only DSiWare game.
According to Nintendo, the product will go on sale between April 2010 and March 2011.
To quote: The DS XL isn't even out in the US yet, but Nintendo is already lining up its successor.
Nintendo describes the system as a successor to the DS series, but it will also play DS and DSi titles. The 3DS is a temporary name according to Nintendo's short press release, but more details on the machine will be revealed at this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo.
The 3DS will be Nintendo's fifth iteration of the DS hardware. The original DS was launched back in 2004 in the US and Japan and 2005 in Europe and Australia.
Since then, the DS Lite and DSi have been launched worldwide, slimming the machine down and offering brighter screens. The DSi XL is the latest version of the hardware and launched earlier this month in Europe and is set to arrive in the US on March 28.
Earlier this year, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata said a new DS would feature...
