Nintendo’s 3DS Conference Provides More Info About Next Spring

This is going to get weird.

As the year comes to an end, we’re now left looking forward to any information about next year. While Nintendo provided very few surprises at their conference this year, at least it gave a few release dates. Of course, they’re all the Japanese release dates and mostly for the spring, but still dates nonetheless.

Some of the big titles that include Resident Evil Revelations (1/26), Tekken 3D Prime Edition (2/16), Final Fantasy Theatrythm (2/16), Metal Gear Solid 3D (3/8), Kingdom Hearts 3D Dream Drop Distance (sometime in March), and finally Kid Icarus (3/22).

Speaking of which, a new trailer showed off both cooperative and competitive multiplayer for that game. And on top of that, the original Kid Icarus is the next game to be given the “3D Classic” treatment.

Moving a little further in time, the next Fire Emblem will come out 4/19 and feature 3D battles on the usual 2D strategy battlefield that the series is accustomed to. And even further in that, a new trailer of Bravely Default Flying Fairy confirmed that the game still exists, still looks like a great mix of sprite backgrounds with polygonal characters, and still has no firm release date besides 2012.

Now, this conference wasn’t entirely about boring stuff such as dates. Kiki Trick (“Listening Trick” roughly translated) is a collection of minigames that utilize various, er, listening tricks such as the correct action to the word being said and deciphering what a character is whispering. Shinde Camera treads familiar territory in that it looks like Fatal Frame, but uses the 3DS’ camera and AR functionality to find ghosts around you.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Nintendo 3DS press conference without a humorous screencap moment.

Love PlusPerfect.

There will be another press conference soon for the North American audience featuring Reggie Fils-Aimes, but there probably won’t be much new at that one.
