The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

Previously Recorded Liveblog Of Nintendo's 3DS Press Conference

Posted on Wednesday, June 6 @ 23:27:49 Eastern by


Let's try something different. I'm in Nintendo's 3DS Software Showcase, hoping to see some new games. Unfortunately, there's no internet access in this theater, so I'm going to "Previously recorded blog" the 3DS showcase.

We've got 5 minutes until the scheduled start time.

I've street passed like... 50 million people in the past 48 hours. It's funny to see the Nintendo execs pulling out their 3DS handhelds and playing with their collected StreetPass Miis. I've gotten Reggie Fils Aime twice.

The most mundane thing Nintendo could show here? DLC or firmware update information. The company started patching their titles and opening the floodgates for companies like Square Enix to prep downloadable content for 3DS games.

Reggie up on stage now, introducing Scott Moffitt to talk about 3DS software.

Banter about how Scott beat Reggie at Mario Kart 7 once. Scott says "so far." Scott brings non-specific action figure from the Nintendo Direct video from Sunday.

Reggie: "At least I don't need a sword to kick ass and take names." Scott: "Uh, alright." StreetPass is crazy with Miis at E3 2012. Yes, yes it has.

So I lost my phone before coming in here. I'm pretty goddam pissed right now. Who cares about 3DS software? I'll stick it out.

Sales figures: Super Mario 3D Land - 2M, Mario Kart 7 - 1.7M Third-party publishers will be detailed here tonight. Castlevania up first! A trailer!

So the 3DS Mirror of Fate is developed by MercurySteam as well. It'll star Simon Belmont, Trevor Belmont, and 2D stages with a little 3D depth. I have to admit that I'm going to miss the hand-drawn 2D Castlevanias.


Alucard will also be appearing in Mirror of Fate, confirming his appearance in Lords of Shadow 2 as well.

Konami Producer Digital Entertainment David Cox is up on stage now. He's running through the demo that's on the show floor at E3.

You play as Trevor Belmont. He uses the chain-whip weapon against enemies and giant bosses. Mirror of Fate will use the dark and light magic system as in Lords of Shadow.

Hitting the R button grapples enemies. The L button blocks attacks, allowing you to counter. Secondary weapons will also return. The boomerang is in the E3 demo.

There's some camera work that makes the 2D combat look pretty dynamic. Four playable characters will be featured in the game, including Alucard.

Mirror of Fate will be on shelves in the Fall. The DS definitely benefitted from the Castlevania series, Nintendo's pleased that it'll continue to earn that love on the 3DS.

Now we're watching some Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon video.
