E3 2010: Live Text - Nintendo's Media Presentation

Posted by James Newton

The show starts here!

This is it: the moment of truth. Finally we're set to find out what Nintendo has in store for the future. 3DS, The Legend of Zelda, Vitality Sensor: all this and more is set to be unveiled here at Nintendo's E3 press conference.

Our man Corbie Dillard has got his seat in the theatre to bring you all the news from the show as it happens. If you're in the mood for some audio accompaniment, you can listen to Corbie and Assistant Editor James Newton discussing Nintendo's show in the latest episode of the Nintendo Life Podcast.

The show kicks off at 9am Pacific Standard Time, which equates to 12pm midday Eastern Standard Time and 5pm British Summer Time. Pictures, news, reaction: it's all here, live from E3.

Excited? Whilst you're waiting for the main event why not join us in the Nintendo Life Chat Room and talk about your E3 predictions.

18:57

I'm heading back to the LA Convention Center for some hands on stuff at Namco's booth and to see Guitar Hero 3 and interview Capcom devs working on Okamiden. Be back later.

18:56

The analog stick is even better than those of the Gamecube controller and silky smooth.

18:55

When I saw the demos actually running on the system, I almost fell over. And the adjustment of turning the 3D effect on and off works perfectly.

18:55

Know this. 3DS is everything I had hoped and so much more. The depth and 3D on it is incredible.

18:20

So no pricing or release date announced for 3DS - take your guesses now!

18:19

Reggie leaves the Nokia Theatre to play on the new Zelda and 3DS - what a show!

18:18

Playable booths of Zelda: Skyward Sword rising out of the floor

18:18

Live gameplay will be available at the booth all week so we should have plenty of chances to get plenty of impressions

18:17

Pick it up and run, Corbie! Run far, run fast!

18:17

Corbie's gonna try out the 3DS today! Lucky you, @CorbieD!

18:16

Models are bringing out the 3DS for everyone to try on

18:16

He's talking about transporting everyone there to the third dimension

18:15

Now he's on stage in a burnt-up jacket

18:15

Bowser's just toasted Reggie!

18:15

Loads of classic Nintendo items coming out of the console - Master Sword, barrels, even the Arwing!

18:14

Here's Mr Miyamoto wearing a fetching pink jacket - his dogs suck him into the game rather violently!

18:14

Mario jumps out and puts a moustache on him and sucks him into the game!

18:14

We're going into a video now where Mr Iwata sits on a stool to play a 3DS

18:13

He's now hinting at a franchise title for 3DS that you'll be able to see at e3.nintendo.com

18:12

It's a pretty strong line-up from Nintendo: Donkey Kong, Mario, Zelda, GoldenEye, Golden Sun...!

18:12

Reggie is back on stage now looking like the cat that got the cream!

18:11

Doesn't sound like there's going to be any consoles available to play on - hinting at perhaps a 2011 launch?

18:10

Team Ninja talking about 3DS - what could they have in store?

18:09

Mr Iwata is leaving after what can be described as a very successful presentation!

18:09

Assassin's Creed, sorry - the excitement is too much! haha

18:09

Assassin's reed in 3DS, Ridge Racer, Metal Gear Solid!

18:08

Batman in 3DS

18:08

Resident Evil coming to 3DS

18:08

Saints Row in 3DS?

18:08

Kingdom Hearts coming to 3DS

18:08

Third parties including Hudson, Marvelous, Ubi, Capcom, EA, Level 5 and Sega bringing software to 3DS

18:07

Mr Miyamoto is working on a 3D version of Nintendogs, containing Cats!

18:07

He's now talking about first-party support and is leading towards third-party support: "our biggest launch support ever from third parties"!

18:06

All this functionality will be free as well

18:06

He's now talking about background downloads for 3DS when it's in standby - it's like WiiConnect24 but on the go

18:05

This will last even if you change the game - the hardware communicates wirelessly automatically, not the software

18:05

Not just graphics that make 3DS unique - it has a sleep mode that searches for WiFi and other 3DSes

18:04

Corbie will be able to see a 3D trailer of it later today

18:03

Massive bosses, great spectacle, free flight and stunning graphics - it's a brand new Kid Icarus for 3DS and it gets a huge cheer

18:02

Mixture of aerial combat and ground fighting too

18:02

Kid Icarus Uprising for 3DS from Masuhiro Sakurai! Looks absolutely incredible if it's in-game - well above DS level

18:01

It features a famous character - it's a 3D version of Kid Icarus!!

18:01

Project Sora is for 3DS

18:00

We're about to see some games for it now

18:00

It can also play Hollywood movies in 3D - no specific plans to announce this week but 3D trailers will be on display

17:59

This means you can take photos in 3D!

17:59

It has full compatibility with Nintendo DSi - 3DS has two cameras facing out

17:58

The "slide pad" is the analogue input and there's motion sensor and a gyro sensor too!

17:58

Better graphics confirmed! Hoorah!

17:57

Touchscreen is included but smudges reduce the 3D impact - seems to be hinting that bottom screen may not be 3D?

17:56

There's adjustable 3D effects with a slider

17:56

It's a traditional clamshell design - looks just like a regular DS with a slightly wider topscreen

17:55

3.5" widescreen for the top screen - it will show full 3D graphics without the need for special glasses, as confirmed before

17:55

The top screen is slightly wider and it has an analogue stick

17:55

He's got the console in his hands

17:54

Here's Satoru Iwata to show it off

17:54

On a pedestral!

17:54

Here's the machine

17:53

He's talking about "ample game content" on the console's first day on the market

17:53

Reggie's slating 3D glasses and the expense

17:52

3DS seems to be the official name

17:52

Here we go with the 3DS!

17:51

Coming this holiday

17:51

It's called Donkey Kong Country Returns!

17:50

Barrels, destructive environments, huge octopus bosses - this is the stuff DK dreams are made of

17:50

Anyone who likes Donkey Kong Country will be well away with this - it looks just like it but in 3D!

17:50

Minecart!!

17:49

It's a side-scrolling platformer

17:49

They really are doing Donkey Kong!

17:49

Retro Studio's new title is up next

17:49

He's talking about Samus's new "emotional corridors" - ooh-er!

17:48

New outdoor location - looks like a rainforest. Far more interesting-looking than previous pages

17:47

Brand new trailer showing plenty of running about and epic bosses

17:47

August 31st for Metroid: Other M in North America

17:46

Now it's the DS's turn with Dragon Quest IX, talking about its Tag Mode for wireless play

17:44

It's on the way this Fall!

17:44

Looks bonkers but it's absolutely charming - totally fresh and gets a huge cheer

17:44

Kirby tank!

17:43

Two-player co-op is in as well

17:43

Kirby can also transform into a UFO!

17:43

You can use thread to stitch together bits of the background to get past

17:43

It looks line-drawn - it's like Paper Mario but with wool instead of pens!

17:43

It's going to be something completely different than previous games: it's called Kirby's Epic Yarn

17:42

Here we go: this is the new Kirby game at last!

17:42

Reggie's talking about Masuhiro Sakurai and his famous franchises: Smash Bros, Kirby...

17:41

That's the end of Epic Mickey - it's improved but you can't shake the feeling there's plenty more to see. There's an Iwata Asks about it on the Nintendo site

17:39

2D platform levels based on classic Mickey Mouse cartoons = absolute win

17:39

Very dark-looking but the game surely won't be dark all the way through - he's now entering a travel zone based on Steamboat Willie

17:38

In aspects it looks like Super Mario Sunshine

17:38

He's talking about the creativity of paint versus the destructive power of thinner. Surprising amount of choice for a Mickey Mouse game!

17:37

Using paint or thinner on the in-game objects and characters changes how they look completely - the real-time graphical effect is really impressive

17:36

It's hard to say how this one will work - it looks a little complex for kids but it certainly looks better than we saw last time. Paint physics look great

17:35

There's some animated cutscenes that look great

17:35

That man can wear a sweater

17:34

Still exclusive to Wii - here's Warren Spector to show it off

17:33

Epic Mickey is up next

17:33

It's exclusive to Wii and coming this holiday

17:33

Reggie looks pleased as punch with that! haha

17:31

That trailer earlier is real

17:31

GoldenEye is REAL

17:31

Arriving this holiday season!

17:30

Hero names are Matthew, Kans and Terrell - battles are the same but graphical effects look amazing

17:30

New touchscreen Psynergies, looks like the usual mix of battles, puzzles and towns

17:29

New trailer shown - looks incredible!

17:29

Golden Sun: Dark Dawn gets a bit cheer

17:28

Eight player support and crew dance-offs could make this one one to... avoid.

17:28

Now we're looking at Just Dance and its success, leading to Just Dance 2 with 40+ "hit" tracks

17:27

As minigame compilations go it looks all right

17:26

This is Wii Party, the next game to bridge the gap for non-gamers

17:26

22m copies of Mario Kart Wii worldwide, 14m NSMB Wii sold worldwide!

17:24

It's also sold more software in 43 months than any other console over the same length of time

17:24

He's now talking about the Wii sales - last December it sold more consoles than any other consoles in any month EVER

17:23

This is out next year as well

17:23

Basketball included too - it's called Mario Sports Mix

17:23

Ice hockey is shown, dodgeball too

17:22

It's actually a multi-sport compilation

17:22

It's Mario volleyball?!

17:22

A new Mario sports game is on the way

17:22

NBA Jam gets a cheer!

17:21

Reggie's hinting at new titles that appeal to everyone

17:20

Reggie's back!

17:20

New trailer follows the presentation - we'll have this on the site as soon as it's available

17:19

Disappointing but the game itself does look very promising - a nice compromise between Wind Waker and Ocarina

17:19

It will not land this year- it will be out in 2011

17:19

Mr Miyamoto apologises for the technical difficulties and hints at the release date

17:18

Switching between items and the sword is very quick, just done with a press of B rather than a menu

17:17

Next up is the whip, another new item to Zelda

17:17

It's tough to see the new items with so much interference

17:16

It flies around to uncover new items

17:16

Here's a new item: the beetle that you shoot

17:15

Bow controls are very similar to Wii Sports Resort, using the Remote as the bow itself and drawing back with the Nunchuk. Some interference apparently causing the controls to react poorly

17:14

You can roll bombs with an underarm swing

17:14

Pointer control used for slingshot as you'd expect - bombs are back!

17:11

The graphical style looks really nice - more of the palette of Link to the Past than Twilight Princess's gloomy outlook

17:11

Looks like new control variations on classic Zelda puzzles

17:10

An eye follows your swordtip - confuse it by waving the sword around!

17:09

Sword beams are back! Charge up by holding your sword skyward and it builds up power

17:09

It looks like the controls will be more streamlined - an onscreen Nunchuk and Remote highlight the buttons and their effects

17:07

He doesn't sound like his voice in that video!

17:07

Miyamoto is on stage now!

17:06

He seems nervous but who wouldn't be?

17:06

Bill Trinen is about to demonstrate the game

17:05

Miyamoto talking about the experience without the sword and shield

17:04

Skyward Sword is the subtitle

17:04

Link looks slightly cel-shaded but it's a mixture of Twilight Princess style and Wind Waker

17:03

Here we go - it's Zelda!

17:03

He's saying the best technology comes when the best technology and design match

17:02

Here's Reggie, talking about new technology. Come on, show us the money!

16:59

Reggie's about to step up!

16:56

Okay guys: Corbie can't get a signal so James will be taking over the live updates. We'll still bring you everything as it happens so don't go away!

16:48

This music is getting annoying real quick!

16:35

Corbie's inside the Nokia Theatre now. We'll soon be bringing you all the announcements right here!

14:22

Well I'm up and about to get ready to walk down to the Nokia Theater for check-in. The time is almost upon us. Bring it on Nintendo!

And don't forget 1AM Japan time (we don't have daylight savings~).

I'm so excited. I hope they announce the title for the new Zelda game. Looking forward to any news about Pikmin 3 and a few others as well.

E3 only shows games that get an international release right?

according to vooks the Australian times are:
EST: 2:00am, June 16
CST: 1:30am, June 16
WST: 12:00am, June 16

Which agrees with what Tsuchinoko is saying because Japan is closest to CST (Adelaide, Darwin).

"The 3DS alone warrants the best E3 Conference "
Assuming they do not screw it up badly, like not having the option for DSi owners to move their downloadable content from that system to the new one.

I do not own a DSi, but I am going to feel bad for those that did purchase stuff on that system.

WaveBoy said:

@Atlantis1982...How would 'that' screw up the system badly? I'm not interested in backwards compatibility, my excitement and hope lays in the 3D technology. If Nintendo didn't allow DSi Content on the 3DS, that wouldn't be that big of a deal. Personally i could care less, after all that's what the DSi is for. If anything, I'm more interested in a handheld Virtual Console. That aside, the 3D is what's going to be truly exciting :D

All i want out of all this is a wireless nunchuck for wii so when i get a wii i can be all wireless, More Footage for Sonic Colors, Pikmin 3, and the announcement of virtual console on 3DS. (I don't see why people want to transfer dsiware to 3DS. wouldn't that just make the dsi useless?)

Well if they can not do something so simple as this, try to imagine their plans for the next console, or anything related to a possible robust of their lackluster online infrastructure (and do not blame friend codes).

Yes, but it's hard to believe.
Miyamoto said the game's visuals would not be radically different from Twilight Princess.

I am 'N64 Kid' on Christmas morning; I could not be any more excited about E3.

C'mon Nintendo, hit me full on with a massive bombshell, maybe not a Megaton!, but leave me beaming. Make 3DS as powerful as a GameCube and include a first party big-hitter announcement with it. Treat me with a Wii Star Fox, or F-Zero announcement. Make the new Zelda to be jaw dropping, not just visually, but with new gameplay additions (have a concept as fundamentally brilliant as Galaxy's gravity).

You are a good man @Corbie, I appreciate your coverage. Good luck, have fun and "Cheers"! :)

Also, I'm very curious if the 3DS's little graphical power rumor is true. Almost as powerful as the PS3/360?...I don't think so, But I think it may be more powerful than the Wii

skywake

#57

skywake said:

hmm... Interesting influx of Zelda rumours. To be perfectly honest I wouldn't mind if all of them are true. Cell Shaded Zelda on Wii going into the backstory of the master sword and featuring a blurring of what is a dungeon and not? count me in on that! Then again, count me in on ANY Zelda!

Apparently there is a way to speed up time. What you do is create a "time bubble" which you can, theoretically, then use to travel faster than the speed of light in by moving in a "wave" of time. Unfortunately though said time bubble hasn't been invented yet and nor has greater than speed of light travel.

So I guess we'll just have to make do by using the traditional time wasting methods. Something that I am sure everyone here excels at given this is a Nintendo fan site. :D

Nah, 3DS doesn't look better than most Wii games. Oh, you're talking 3rd parties? Yes it does (sadly).

About Gamecube level graphics I'd say. That Kid Icarus needed a little bit of spit and polish (that it'll doubtless get), but on such a small screen? Yes, please! :D

OMG. Nintendo NAILED this e3 out of the park! :D

I was blown away by the new Kirby and Donkey Kong especially. The new zelda looks absolutely fantastic. I love different types of motion controls and it's more colorful and surreal look compared to Twilight Princess Mickey Mouse looks great! Golden Eye 007 , and Kid icarus! on the freakin 3DS!!!!! I'm just dieing to hear impressions on the 3D and graphics. I was suprised though at how similar it looked like the DS. Graphics wise, Kid Icarus Uprising looked like a GCN title, definitly not better than the Wii, alittle weaker I'd say. Especially if you're comparing it to the new Kirby and Donkey Kong which both blew my mind graphically! Anyways, better than i expected!

This is a brilliant showing from Nintendo, can't really think of a title on the Wii I don't want. The 3DS also is going to be massive!

you forgot Star Fox on 3DS, Metal Gear Solid, Resident Evil, Assassin's Creed... :D

Nobody else thought Wii Party looked fun? I can imagine it being fun with a bunch of friends, at least.

3DS start games: Metal Gear Solid, Kid Icarus, Saint Rows, Batman, Assassin's Creed, Kingdom Hearts and a Team Ninja game.

Kinect start games: Metal Gear Solid, Adrealin Misfits, Star Wars, Sonic Free Riders, Kinectimals and a bunch of other Wii carbon copies released 4 years ago.

Nintendo rules this expo.

And I absolutely loved that 3D commercial teaser. It has this early 90's and 80's commercial-like charm to it. Since it's fun, crazy and zany. :D

That was an incredible show, it was a new brilliant announcement rapid-fire presentation. Loads of quality for gamers, for me personally it was packed with future 2D classics. 3DS looks set to live up to expectations.

Nintendo's feed was impeccable, it's still discussing Zelda: Skyward Sword.

Nintendo, I take my hat off to you. :)

@198 yes, that WiiParty could be a sleeper. Using the wimote like that, and using its speakers is something Nintendo should have done ages ago. I can see me and friends playing with this after a poker night or something for sure. Or like on a date night.

@198 Too many awesome titles. I figure Nintendo is thinking: "If we can't have this game out by the next E3, why announce it?" It makes sense, too. Why take out the thunder from other games that should come out within the next 12 months when your lineup and conference is already packed?

Gotta say, that Icarus game coming out for the DS instead of the Wii took me by surprised. DK and Kirby looked better than even the best I could have imagined. (That "sundown" stage looked incredible.)

Goldeneye looked awesome! I like how all the other consoles focus on FPSs with great graphics and online stuff, but Nintendo throws in a bit of everything including FPSs with fun multiplayer. Nintendo makes games that are fun, not games that just look cool. Kinect is cool, but Microsoft didn't use it right. All that it is good for is fitness games. The sports ones look boring and the kinectimals made me want to gouge my eyes out. The 3DS really out shined Kinect.

@200 May still get it. That commercial teases a possibility for all major franchises for the 3DS. Good thing Nintendo is looking at this is a true next gen system, which means we will get all the hotness.

Again, too much awesome. Nintendo FTW!

Didn't hurt my eyes at all and it looked amazing. Trust me, this is no small upgrade. And if you see it in action, you're gonna want it.

So did @Drake and I really see @Corbie on the 'Nintendo E3 Network' site stream?

I thought I caught him giving quick impressions on 3DS. It didn't show the 3DS screens, it just displayed his reaction to playing it. I could be wrong. ;)

Well, I have to say, this year wasn't nearly as depressing on the Nintendo Side of things as the last two years were. I was actually interested in quite a few titles, and the 3DS was much more impressive than I expected. I can't wait for the new Donkey Kong Country game, and I can't believe I'm saying this, but I'm actually very excited for the new Kirby and Metroid games. I guess Microsoft more than made up for the disappointment, though.

Still, no new F-Zero, no new Pikmin, and no new Starfox. Oh well, there's always next year...

What was shown? a movie trailer? A game trailer? Did you get to play anything? Or were you dudes just taking 3D pics?

Does anyone else have the Nintendo Life site trying to open 5 pop-up windows? Is there a reason why it is doing that? :/

Hey Dodger, when you click on the e3 picture in the background it will open a pop up but if you have a blocker like me it will be blocked.

@Lock O Man Thanks. I trust Nintendo Life but I get suspicious when it says it blocked 5 or so pop-ups.

I laugh at all of the skeptics that said the 3D tech was going to fail(IGN mainly), what a bunch of close minded snobs. I knew Nintendo would knock it out of the park with the 3DS. And it's the next huge step in gaming.
