Nintendo has launched a contest via Facebook to win a trip for two to E3 2013, where you’ll be able to get your hands on the upcoming Wii U and 3DS games. To enter, check out this page and “share your favourite Nintendo experience”. Don’t forget to check the terms and conditions though. (They’re after the break, too.)
T3 has created a concept video for a Nintendo-based phone. It’s an idea that’s been discussed in the past, and I’m sure Nintendo has considered their options, but I sure hope we never see anything like what’s shown in the video after the break. It’s just a woefully-generic phone with Nintendo-ish looking software.
Of course, it is a mock-up. It doesn’t have to be perfect. There doesn’t seem to be anything compelling about the ideas though, and the hardware is pointlessly dull. But feel free to disagree with me.
It’s coming, people. There’s one more Nintendo Direct broadcast before the start of E3 and Nintendo has confirmed that Smash Bros. will be shown. I’m expecting the Wii U version to get most of the attention, but I’m sure we’ll see some 3DS-based stuff, or at least hear about some of that version’s features.
For the most part, the recent Nintendo Broadcast focused on the Wii U. There was a small amount of 3DS-based content in the North American broadcast though and, in either case, you might like to check out the presentations. With that in mind, they’re all after the break.
The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages and The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons are coming to the 3DS on the 30th of May, and there’s two trailers after the break. Plus, if you pick up the games within the first three weeks of being released, they’ll cost just $4.99 each (compared to $5.99 each).
There’s a new trailer for Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D after the break. Enjoy!
Nintendo is set to host their next Nintendo Direct broadcast tomorrow on the 17th of May. The official reason for the event is to “provide updates on upcoming summer Wii U and Nintendo 3DS games”, so I’m guessing we won’t see a lot of (if any) surprises. Since we’re closing in on E3 though, that makes a lot of sense. The stream starts at 7am PT (or 10am ET), and can be found here.
(There’ll also be a Japanese stream, although that’s marketed as more Wii U-focused.)
