    1. Nope, sadly no Advance Wars or Fire Emblem titles were revealed. I quickly scribbled everything down and think I covered everything that was announced. Will post videos once they’re made available : )

      1. If you can forward any messages; the world is waiting for a Fire Emblem with Campaign Editor function. It would make my life complete!

  1. I can think of only a couple points during the entire conference that I thought, “Meh, I could definitely live without that!” Wii Party was one of them. Well, now that that’s out of the way…..NINTENDO WINS E3! Lol, I know there’s no way to actually “win” E3, but if there was, they definitely would have! Their conference was much better than what I saw of Microsoft’s. Sure, it was cool and all to see that stuff in action, but after Sunday’s leak, there just wasn’t much excitement left. The only surprise left was when they gave everyone in the crowd a free Slim. That was unexpected.

    Anyway, Nintendo’s Press Conference was so full of WIN! that my brain is overloaded.

    1. I’m kind of mad right now. I wish that had been able to watch the conference on there. Every time I tried going there, it redirected me to I don’t understand why, either. It worked yesterday…..I ended up having to watch the conference on G4, which isn’t bad, but you don’t get to watch the special presentation afterward……

    2. @andy0002 Thanks for heads-up on the website. I’ll post a link on the site.
      @JDE it may have been a redirect due to the amount of traffic I’d imagine they received. At least you manage to watch it : )

      1. Yeah, I thought it might be something like that too. It was doing it before the conference even started, though, Sigh, I guess I should have gotten up earlier.

  2. Nintendo 3DS will be a must, must have for me.The list of games in development are impressive–games I would’ve loved to have seen on say the DS and especially the Wii. The Wii half of the presentation was solid enough. PokePark, Wii Party, and New Carnival Games I could do without. New Carnival Games just seems like a game that would pop up…not exactly be announced or anything. The 3DS portion though, that was the main event. Perfect placing of the two by Nintendo for build up.

    Looking forward to 2011 for 3DS–will be extremely surprised if anything comes out later this year. Sims 3, Skyward Sword, and Other M are what I’m banking on for Wii this year.

    @Fernan Ha! Good question. I didn’t see it noticed either.

    I need a predicted price. And I shall start saving now. As for colour, I want the blue one. I have a red DS Lite, will change it up a little. :)

  4. Am excited for the 3DS and will definitely be a must buy the day of release. It’ll probably be in shortage for the first year like the WII. I am kind of disappointed they didn’t announce the rumored “Wii Hi-Fi”; but, it was probably to not take the attention away from the 3DS. I bet that Wii Hi-Fi may be announce at the GC in Germany or TGS or in the next E3.

    BTW. This is a great site. Keep up the nice work.

  5. Its really impressive! It has really unique things that bring a lot of attention to this Nintendo and I can read great positive things but…I would like to know the negative things too because I’m not sure whats better: PSP gold, nintendo DSiXL, or Nintendo 3DS. Oh! and I would like to know when are you guys going to realize it.
    So exited!

  6. I love Nintendo, they always bring it in E3 and the games this year and next year will be awesome and will be part of my collection.

  7. When I first heard about the 3DS I thought: “How stupid will it look to wear 3D-glasses on the train?” But the I read that it’s supposed to be 3D withoud the need for glasses and now I’m really excited about the 3DS!
