Nintendo E3 2010 to show 3DS, more
Nintendo held its press conference for E3 2010 today. The Japanese firm showed the 3DS as well as a large game roster for the DS, DSi and Wii. Visit our live coverage page for events as they happen.
12:22PM: Live coverage page has the rest.
12:19PM: The whip lets you grab items from a distance. Apologize for the technical problems, but it should be better on the E3 show floor.
12:17PM: Still explaining the story: you can control a beetle by flying it with the remote. Encountering wireless interference -- possibly a shadow of Apple's Wi-Fi problems?
12:10PM: Miyamoto bursts through the backstage, saying the host can focus on English while he focuses on controls. Shows navigating the environment; you have to slash living plant monsters in the directions their mouths are open. You can charge up a sword by holding it up or do spin attacks by swinging both hands in the same direction.
12:06PM: Shigeru Miyamoto up describing how the game works: the Wii remote and the nunchuk are the sword and shield, respectively. They're also used for movement control.
12:04PM: Reggie Fils-Aime up on stage. Talking about how it's not just the technology, it's the end product. New Zelda game: Skyward Sword.
