Giant wheels vs tiny wheels in an epic showdown to the death.
Nintendo’s got news, and President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime is here to tell you about it. Be warned, if you’re looking for action packed trailers of Nintendo games, this video is not for you. If you want to stare at a guy’s face for seven minutes, watch this immediately. And if all you care about is the news, here’s the gist of it:
3D video recording is coming to the 3DS next month, along with new puzzles for street pass, Find Me 2, and a street pass map. Mario Kart 7 (also coming next month) will support 8 player races online, and of course runs at a smooth 60fps. It’ll have street pass support, Mii support, and ghost data support, which means that all around it’s going to be a pretty kick ass game.
Now go watch the video, and skip about halfway through if you want to see the (very) small portion filled with actual gameplay footage. Click through and watch.
We know the release dates: November 13th for Super Mario 3D Land and December 4th for Mario Kart 7, so now here’s some footage. Both of these games look and play amazingly well, and are two of my most anticipated games for the holiday season. These trailers should also be on the eShop in the near future, where you’ll be able to check them out in all their 3D glory. For now, watch them right here in stunning 2D after the break.
That bulky add on is coming soon to Japan on December 10th (which means an American release can’t be far away) for the low price of 1500 Yen (roughly 20 bucks). It will thankfully be supported by some of the games that really need it like: Monster Hunter, Resident Evil: Revelations, Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D, and Kingdom Hearts 3D. Unfortunately, the slidepad attachment will also be supported by a battery, rather than the 3DS itself which means two things: It won’t add any extra battery life to the 3DS, and this damn thing will now need even more battery power to run.
This preview will be short and sweet, much like the game demo itself, although I must say the demo I played of Mario Kart 7 was one of the longer 3DS demos and very heavy on the sweet(s). I got to play through three courses from the game, which took me across the land, through the air, and underwater. The game is still very much a Mario Kart title, which means you’re not going to be shocked or really surprised by anything in particular, but the game is just put together so well that you won’t even care. Read on for more MK7 goodness.
