Nintendo president Satoru Iwata just took the stage at the Games Developer Conference to deliver a host of a new and exciting news for Nintendo fans everywhere during his keynote titled ”Video Games Turn 25: A Historical Perspective and Vision for the Future”.
Satoru Iwata announced that Netflix is on its way to the Nintendo 3DS with a wide range of streaming movies. Users will be able to watch video’s in high quality using the 3DS’ higher-resolution top screen starting sometime this summer.
Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime later joined the stage and reiterated that Nintendo 3DS users will eventually be able to record 3D video’s using the Nintendo 3DS via a firmware update which will be available at a later date.
Reggie Fils-Aime also announced that Nintendo are teaming up with AT&T to deliver free downloadable game content and demos, and that AT&T will provide more than 10,000 Wi-Fi hotspots.
The Nintendo eShop for the Nintendo will not only play host to classic Gameboy and Gameboy Colour titles but will also play host to Gamegear and Turbo Turbografx games.
Nintendo 3DS users will also be able to download 3D classics, which are updates of older Nintendo games with 3D effects. I’d imagine more information on these games will be revealed at E3 in June.
The highly anticipated 3D remake of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3DS will be released in June according to Satoru Iwata. Not too sure if that’s a worldwide release date just yet.
Nintendo president Satoru Iwata also took the time to show off a new trailer for the highly anticipated Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. The footage itself showed that the game really takes advantage of Nintendo’s Wii MotionPlus peripheral.
Last and not least, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata showed off the next Mario title for the Nintendo 3DS. The game itself is a 3D platformer and is currently being developed by the Super Mario Galaxy team. More information at E3 in June.
