To cut to the chase, the price and launch date for the Nintendo 3DS was just announced. The launch date is set for March 27, 2011. The price will be $249. There will be a hefty amount of games released between the launch date and E3, not all of which have been listed. An educated guess would assume that Ocarina of Time 3DS will be included in that window.
I deeply apologize that we’re a bit behind the ball on this update, as we’ve all been focused on improving the website’s appearance and functionality. To get straight to the point, a new trailer for Ocarina of Time 3D has just been leaked, and we’d like to share it with those who have not already viewed it. The video is right below:
I must say that I’m extremely impressed with the visual appearance of the game. It feels so much more bright and crisp, as opposed to the original. This game is looking better and better all the time. I’m just a little wary of the estimated $300 price tag that’s rapidly approaching…
We’ve just redone some of the basic features on our current game pages. As of now, we’ve only redone small parts of the content, fixing gammrer dan spekking erroes. ..Er, grammar and spelling errors. The most notable change is the addition of the game boxes we’ve added for each of the games. You can see an example of one of them below.
Also, we’re currently working on updating the content for the games we have listed. As soon as those have been finished, we’ll be adding in other titles, such as Oracle of Seasons, Oracle of Ages, Phantom Hourglass, and Spirit Tracks. Be sure to keep checking out those pages, as the character guides, walkthroughs and downloads sections will be expanding.
Finally, we’ll be reworking the home page in the coming days. There have been no final decisions regarding how it will turn out, so we would much appreciate your input in the comments section. We most likely will be moving this very blog to a different page, and creating a static page where we can have more links, images and feeds.
In a Chinese factory a few days ago, one of the workers decided to steal one of the prototype 3DS systems being made there. He (or she) then took it home and took numerous photographs and a video of it. You can see the pictures below.
It was a very gutsy move to do this, and you gotta appreciate it! Thank you, random Chinese factory worker! Now let’s just hope that Nintendo doesn’t bear any resemblance to Apple.1
It seems that Nintendo’s breakthrough system, the 3DS, is going to be hazardous to children under the age of six. Nintendo’s website provides a warning:
“Vision of children under the age of 6 (is in) the developmental stage. The Nintendo 3DS, including 3-D movies and television, delivers 3-D images with different left and right eye images,” which “has a potential impact on the growth of children’s eyes.”
Apparently, Nintendo also provides a warning for all gamers, stating that users should take breaks every 30 minutes or when they feel sick. The 3DS is also going to come with a slider used to tone the level of depth of the 3D images so it can be decreased or even reduced to 2D for those whose eyes can’t handle the intensity of 3D. It will also come with a parental safety setting which can force the system into 2D mode so it will be safer for younger gamers.
Seems like Nintendo’s thought this system out. Still can’t wait to see the 3DS itself come out!
