PlayWISE doesn’t always have time to report on every piece of game news throughout the week. Unfortunately, there are some weeks we may not have time to post at all. Fear not faithful readers; this week we’re introducing a digest of all the week’s gaming news we deem fit for consumption but were unable to cover throughout the week. Read onward to the first installment of our “Quick Skinny.”
Reggie Fils-Aime, President of Nintendo of America, broke the sad news to MTV yesterday that some major titles will not be released for the 3DS during the launch window announced at last week’s 3DS press conference.
“Mario, Zelda, all of those titles are coming,” said Fils-Aime. “From our perspective, we like to launch titles when they’re ready. And so they’ll be ready, they’ll be ready soon. Just not in that initial time period of late March to early June.”
Five new screenshots for the upcoming 3DS remake of “The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time” have surfaced on Japanese gaming site Famitsu. Nintendo also held a 3DS demo event today in Japan, announcing that the game would not make it into the launch line-up for the Japanese release of the console on Feb 26.
At this time, it is unknown whether or not it will be available by the American launch date in March, but there is speculation that it will be bundled with the 3DS in America.
