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!
