250°
248w ago - Today Nintendo has updated the [Register or Login to view links] 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.

However, after defeating a large, purple...

249w 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...

Nintendo DS 2 Dev Kits with Motion-sensing Hit Developers

350°
254w ago - Select developers in Japan, including The Pokemon Company, have already received Nintendo DS 2 Dev Kits complete with motion-sensing capability from Nintendo.

According to [Register or Login to view links], while better graphics and sound for the new platform is no surprise, the real standout feature is the supposed addition of a tilt motion sensor - similar to that of an iPhone.

To quote: "It's genuinely the best thing I think I've ever worked with," said the source. "I can tell you that it's got a 'tilt' function that's not dissimilar to iPhone, but does a lot more.

We know that The Pokemon Company are getting special attention with it."

As for Nintendo's so-called 'DS2' with tilt sensor and Nvidia Tegra graphics chip, chances are good it won't make a GDC 2010 reveal or even an announcement by E3 this summer.

Press Release: EUROPEAN LAUNCH DATE OF NINTENDO DSi XL CONFIRMED

Get ready to experience your favourite Nintendo DS games like never before - on the big screens and via the wider viewing angle of the Nintendo DSi XL, launching across Europe on 5th March 2010.
