With the release of the 3DS coming out in Japan soon (February 26th) all eyes seem to be focused on what Nintendo has planned for the portable side of things. Nintendo still has their eyes focused on the Wii with a few goodies coming our way sooner or later.

A Nintendo investors briefing offered a quick glimpse at the lineup. Notable titles for this year are Kirby, which is in development by HAL Labs. The other being Rhythm Heaven, which will offer one and two player support. Both of these titles have been previously announced, but you can see videos at the Nintendo’s Investor relations page.

(Rhythm Heaven is at top, Kirby is below that — but you can probably figure that out on your own).

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is on its way this year, of course. According to CEO Satoru Iwata, who briefly mentioned the game at an investors briefing today, development is in the final stages. However, the game’s release will trail Ocarina of Time 3DS.

The Wii will also be getting new IPs as well! Coming out of nowhere was a video game called,“Pandora’s Tower.” They have a teaser site for this game which can be found here.

Less specifically, Iwata mentioned that Nintendo is progressing with a variety of Pokemon related developments for the 3DS and the Wii. We expected Pokemon on the 3DS at some point. But it looks like a new Wii Pokemon game may be on the way as well!

  • Sweet! I haven't looked into the Kirby franchise yet, but I'm planning on getting at least one game from the WiiShop to try out. But first, A Link to the Past!

      kirbey 64 in my opionion is the best thou kirbys adventure for the nes is also great and cheaper

      • Thanks! I miss the N64 games, so I might try that out. Though it'd also be cool to see one of the classic Kirbys.

    • Erimgoneberserk

      You Hopeless Homo, Kirby's the GAYEST SHlT EVER! LMFAO!!!!

      PS- I bet you suck a mean c0ck just as well as the pink one HIMSELF! LOL!!!

      • 1 Corinthians 6;9.

        ^Nope, I follow that verse. So I'm not a homo.

        And have you played and Smash Bros? Kirby actually sucks the entire guy up, then spits him out and steals his power–better known as the B-button specialty. Haha, but that's an easy mistake for any video game noob to make. ;D

          *high fives*

        • Erimgruntingduets

          I thought following any of those verses is what makes you a homo..

          -And they're only telling you how to hide your homogayfaguality when they said that. We ALL know what goes on during choir….. boyyyyy… PRACTICE!!!!!!!OMFGLMAOROFLLOLOoLLOOLOLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!

        • vick

          homo fig git who touches himself at night.

          • Querulous

            Speaking of yourself. B(

            Leave my rival alone. And come up with a legit nasty. Your name rhymes with what you are. XPPP

  • Shadowknight1

    Welllll….here's the thing guys. Don't get excited for anything but Kirby and Pokemon. As of right now, both of those original titles are Japanese only, the same with the recent The Last Story.

  • My inner Pokemon nerd just resurfaced. I am now commencing freak-out mode.

  • ChainofTermina

    a pokemon game on a home console!? that hasn't happened since………..when has that happened since?

    • majorasmaslfan

      pokemon stadium for the n64

  • bradley

    Pandora's Tower looks pretty interesting. I definitely want to try it out.

  • elementary

    Nintendo has a LOT to own up to after the disaster that was Battle Revolution, and they also have to top Epic Yarn. How they plan to do either of these will be interesting.

  • Lunar

    Pandora's Tower is all mysterious and stuff. It seems reminiscent of Final Fantasy, I'll definitely be watching for info on that. Also can't wait for Skyward Sword. New Zelda games always makes me happy.

  • Shadowknight1

    Again, Pandora's Tower is probably going to be Japanese only.

  • Subrosian

    Please, Nintendo… Please give me Ruby Version 3D…

    The Kirby game looks awesome.

  • Pokémon Stadium 3 would kick major boot-ay!

    • Querulous

      My gods, it would definitely kick your butt, you stupid troll. 😛

      • Erimgrudge

        WUT?! ..Just what about his post was trolling, youuu.. UBER-DOUCHE?!?!

        • Querulous

          Ah, does Airloom begrudge little, old Querulous?

          WUTHA?! ..Speaking of grudges, this guy insulted me awhile back and I now got back at him. But back to you: Uber-Dutch, a legit nasty? ROFLOLHAHLOLYOSHI! In short, I'm not one of the 'Hidden Order.' You might say I'm freelance. Yet, when I do cross some dlck with your attitude, I'm not afraid to pack a few punches. What have I to lose, after all? Nothing. A guy named Querulous has nothing to lose. So take a hint and beat it. 8P

          • Erimgotlaidlastnight

            really? ANOTHER troll is here?!?! AAAAAWWWWEESOOOMMMEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
            ..well, now I'm EXPECTING LIKE YOUR MOTHER WAS AFTER LAST NIGHT!!!!!

  • Munch

    That's only because it's a short game for small kids. Cool graphics though! 😛

    • Yeah, I figured as much. It's colorful at least! =D

  • Tsubasa_Zero

    It's time for pokemon to go real time. Just control the pokemon but than inthe graphs from pokemon park (or what that stupid newest game is called). 4 buttons are four attacks. Just a good rpg like the GB/GBA/DS ones but than real time fights and not from a sky view.

  • Shadowknight1

    Well, good news for Pandora's Tower. The Last Story sold very well in its first week, which might contribute to an international release, and if THAT does well, then I'd be more willing to bet Pandora's Tower will be released internationally as well.

  • aw9000

    hooray for pokemon colliseum 3!!!!!!!
