  • Firsties!!! Layton puzzles with 3D elements will be the best stuff ever. OoT is a given.

  • WhatBoi

    There's no Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney?!

    • I haven't seen a scheduled release for the Layton/Phoenix crossover, but the next Layton game (Miracle Mask) is supposed to be a launch title, so it would make sense that they'd show it off.

  • Omygosh!!!! Miiiiiiiiiiiis!

  • OoT in playable and video formish! sweetness.

  • Besides Ocarina of Time 3D, I'm looking forward to Kid Icarus: Uprising most. Then Mario Kart and Metal Gear Solid. I'm also curious of what Animal Crossing is like.

  • Keith

    Can't wait for the OoT 3D demo. I won't be there, but still info should be massive. 😀 Also wanting to see the KH and Paper Mario videos. Haha. THIS WILL BE EPIC!!

  • Shrub

    Gah, this is almost too much! So wonderful <3

    I agree with Matthew; I can't wait to see what Layton puzzles do with 3D. Hopefully they'll prove that 3D is more than a gimmick and can be integrated into gameplay!

    And being a long time Animal Crossing fan, I'm super excited about another handheld version – keeping up with your town is so much easier on a handheld. Also, it looks like they're innovating, wondeful!

    And Paper Mario. Self explanitory.

  • OoT 3DS is the highlight, but then of course I'm also excited for Professor Layton and Kid Icarus. Super Monkey Ball, Paper Mario, and Mario Kart are ones I'm also looking forward to!

  • Hylian Pheonix

    So much new info! Animal crossing, OoT, Mario….it's so exciting!
    I can't wait for gameplay and new info!!!!!

  • Ta-da!

    All of thees games beet Zelda!

    • Obviously you don't think that, because you are on a Zelda site. ;P

      • Ta-da!

        Are all you fools MAD? I came on here to post my animosity for the series, and now I'm gonna flame it!

        • ChainofTermina

          Better Trolls than you have tried.

        • Oh, just get lost. You're taking up comment space. 😛

        • Keith

          Trollololololololol

          • Ta-da!

            You think that's funny, huh?

            Very well, Thareass, I will join your little community. But first, do any of you know of DARK MASTER from Zelda Dungeon, know what he's famous for? Claiming to be over the Dungeon. Well, this just so happens to be Zelda Universe, no? Why should I settle with a petty Dungeon when I can be over all the ZELDA UNIVERSE? So now, I am self-appointed to watch over all of you, to guide you from your erroneous ways, and I will see justice is upheld…unlike this government and it's conceited Branches.

            And to the long-named one, who I'll call simply Chain: I am not a troll. I'm one with an opinion, and I stated my opinion, and my opinion was challenged. So shall all of you! Good day! Hahaha!

          • Noob

            This troll is a fail

          • Oibedaisy…get a life, and better insults.

            You want to know why your opinion was attacked? Because you first tried to belittle something we love. YOU caused us to go against you. But this is no matter to you–this I know; I've been around trolls long enough to know their psychology, in addition to their lack of concern. You just want a reason to troll, and now you set yourself up as some form of deity, when there is only one true God, and He is over so much more than a gaming franchise.

            You apparently wish to be seen as a *god* of opinions. That is, you want to control what we think and say, pertaining to our "erroneous ways", as we seemingly don't think in YOUR light. Good. I don't at all desire to have the same mind as yours. Anyone with a mind of their own shouldn't. So, leave off from where you're going–repent from *your* erroneous way, since, just like this government and its conceited Branches, you are unable to rule over us.

          • Yes. That is what we all feel when we saw your comment (Thanks to Thareous) In fact I think anyone would put you below all other people. If this is how you try to get people's attention then you are most likely infamous and have no friends. *Pity*

          • It's confusing when people reply to you but might be speaking to someone else. You *were* talking to Ta-da!, right? 😉

          • Yup.

    • Ta-Da

      HAR HAR HAR HAR. I hate things and everyone.

  • occultfan

    I really wish they were re-making Link's Awakening. I hold on to hope. That is an amazing game, and can you imagine, if they put truly deep thought into it, releasing it both as a 'true 3D re-make' and as a 'fully-rethought-game'? Playing through those dungeons, sneezing raccoons flying around the screen… sleepy toadstool brewin', and playing (the best music of the series?) on 3D instruments?! GAH! Its too much. Too much. Just be honorable, THIEFs… : ) [zap.]

    • MAH BOI!

      well, it is confirmed that Links Awakening DX (gameboy color) will be out for the 3DS virtual console which is pretty neat because you will play game in full stereoscopic 3-D with crisp texture and brighter colors. but i haven't heard of an ACTUAL remake like OoT is getting.

      • occultfan

        Thanks for the heads-up! I saw that there was a rumor going around that LA would be available, and I saw it first here, but then I thought I remembered seeing something about how that 'wasn't going to happen'. Do you have a recent link to a page with the news I can read on this?

        • MAH BOI!

          well i dont know a link but you could type it up on youtube or go to nintendo3dsblog(dot)com and try to look it up there, sorry =(
          but dont worry, its not a rumor. it was confirmed on september 29th by satoru iwata that both The Legend of Zelda: Links Awakening DX and Super Mario Land will both be on the 3DS virtual console.

          • occultfan

            If you are correct, I will be -so- happy. I love that game, so so so much. I wud out pickin' mushroomz in duh woodz ahn ah mustah fell ahsleep… (my "translation" from memory). Well, anyways, thank you. : ) Don't forget, in the DS version, to show Marin around when you 'have' her! You'll miss out on a sidequest (in part) if you don't!!).

          • MAH BOI!

            I love Links Awakening too, Its #2 on my top five Zelda games

          • occultfan

            What are your top five Zelda games?

  • Zombie Jesus

    If only there could be non-3DS announcements. Like.. oh well I don't know.. maybe Skyward Sword's release date?

    • ZU is in not affiliated with Nintendo, so there's no way they'd know when SS is to be released until the big N announces the date. It will be some time this year though, in Q1 (Jan-Apr), so it might be soon. Maybe during the 3DS expo even, with hope.

      • Zombie Jesus

        I realize that ZU has zero ties with Nintendo. I'm hoping that Nintendo will announce the date before Q1 is over, so that we actually get SS in Q1 or early Q2 (April-May).

        • Same here. I was content to wait this long, but many more delays and we'll be liable to undergo the same bust of hype as with Twilight Princess.

          • Zombie Jesus

            Yeah, I'm worried that if SS doesn't release by April or May, then Nintendo will probably hold off SS until the holidays.

  • sophie

    oh my god the 3ds is going to be awesome, i really can't wait for the animal crossing game, professor layton and mario kart :)))) i'm so excited!!!!

  • Linksoer

    This is great! Not only am I exited to see some new fotage of OoT3D, but of all of these great games that are coming out on the 3Ds!
    And this is just it's first generation of games! So you can bet that things will just get better and better!

  • Wait a second. Is this an expo just for the 3DS or for other games too? Because then Nintendo might unveil Skyward Sword's release date or a playable demo witch hints at the storyline.

    • Zombie Jesus

      It's supposed to be for 3DS games.

      But I would like to see a Skyward Sword date set 😀

  • Soeroah

    Please, Level-5, please give some information on Time Travellers!

  • Well…LOOK AT THE SITE!!!ZELDA OOT!!!

  • wayofthesheikah

    So stoked to see what comes out of this, hopefully someone will be able to get some gameplay and trailer footage from it to post online to Youtube. Very excited for Star Fox 64 3D, Metal Gear Solid 3, Resident Evil: Revelations, and of course, OoT 3DS!

  • Ben

    the only game ive ever heard of OoT

  • Shadowknight1

    Hopefully the OoT3DS video will be a full trailer that will be available online. 😀

  • Bitf Adict

    Ugh… why do you post this stuff? It's not like we can get a flight to japan in time. Now I'm gonna feel bad when the conventions on and I'm not there…

    • HeavyWeaponsFan

  • Hylian Pheonix

    I really want to see the new artwork for Ocarina of time 3DS! Just like SM64 DS, it was so different!
    I can't wait to see the different ways they drew Link!

  • cukeman
