The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D Preview -- Sinking Back Into The Water Temple

We know that the one Nintendo 3DS game you're waiting for is The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D so today we've got a preview of everyone's favorite level in the epic action RPG adventure: The Water Temple. The beloved Water Temple is the third Temple you have to traverse when you turn into Adult Link, about halfway through OoT, and due to its difficult puzzles and water physics it has become the bane of many a gamer's childhood years. As it turns out, the Water Temple is still tough in the new 3DS version of the game, but fresh aspects of the title make it a much better experience according to our previewer David Rudden:

"That being said, the Water Temple was a multifaceted tool of frustration, and some of the level's other troublesome parts have been improved with Ocarina of Time 3D's changes. The addition of Gyro Sensor controls may help the less-experienced dungeon crawlers engage in first-person activities like aiming and exploring the surroundings. Even for folks who prefer the precision of an analog stick (present company included), using the Gyro Sensor is a nice change of pace that can be enjoyable during lower-stakes situations like finding hookshot panels and looking for hidden elements within an empty room."

To check out some of the other new features looming in new version of Hyrule including "vision stones" read the rest of David's The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time preview.

Along with some fun box art pictures a bunch of new details have surfaced around the new gorgeously designed Rayman title, Rayman Origins. The title was originally slated as a downloadable game, but according to the June issue of Game Informer, the heavily stylized platformer has been developed into a full title much to the joy of fans. Origins is being designed by Michael Ancel who has worked on previous Rayman titles and Beyond Good & Evil.

The game sounds really interesting, integrating new ideas to platformers like "I Dare You" challenges where you'll wager whether or not you can complete complex tasks. You'll also to be able to collect Lums (yay Lums) and then spend them to get more power ups and health. Rayman Origins will also feature up to four-player multiplayer.

Rayman Origins is currently scheduled for a holiday 2011 release for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, and the Nintendo DS.

 Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater 3D

Konami's Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D is on track for a November release. An official date in November was not given. The game was on display at Nintendo's press conference at E3 last year, leading many to assume the game would be a 3DS launch title. I guess we'll have to settle on getting Snake Eater 3D as a Christmas present.

Are you looking forward to a Metal Gear solid title on the 3DS?

Morning Hangover #71 -- Andrew Looks For Feedback, Patrick Has TV Envy

Yes, it's nearly time for this week's episode of Feedback! Right now, Feedback is like an angry, hungry baby, and it needs your questions for sustenance. So if you want to ask us anything about Brink, let us know. Especially questions that are of the "Just what the heck is Brink?" variety. We're all poised to answer those. Also, you are probably starting to have things you want to know about E3 making you feel funny in your bathing suit area. That's just fine, and a side effect that will go away. Ask us those questions as well, and then tune in later this week to see if we use your question on the show!

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3DS has a new trailer, just released by Nintendo. The trailer shows some of the updated graphics, although the biggest improvement, 3D, isn't actually visible. One thing they obviously haven't changed is the audio. Those same melodies from the N64 are heard in this trailer and they are sucking me in! I don't want to buy a $250 piece of hardware for a game I already have, three times! How can I possibly resist the sounds of Hyrule though?

A trusted Japanese retail blog Sinobi leaked that The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D is receiving a very limited initial release in Japan. According to the site, Japanese 3DS owners should pre-order the game if they want to secure a copy, as Nintendo doesn't want Ocarina of Time to end up in a bargain bin like The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks did due to massive overstock and underwhelming sales.

Sinobi only mentions Japanese retailers in the post, saying that regardless of retailer size, Nintendo will only be shipping a set amount of units. There's no word if this is the case for every region, but we're hoping the same won't hold true for the United States once the game lands on June 19.

Morning Hangover #71 -- Andrew Looks For Feedback, Patrick Has TV Envy

Join the Feedback crew next Wednesday as we welcome special industry guest Jesse Divnich! Jesse spends his days as vice-president at Electronic Entertainment Design and Research, thinking about the future and analyzing video game trends. At night, we imagine he plays a fair share of video games as well. He'll be our guest in-studio as we speculate and prognosticate on the industry. Want to chip in? You can! 

Ask us questions about the past, present and future of gaming, and we'll pose them to Jesse. Want to know if motion gaming is a fad or here to stay? We'll put it to him. Need the info on possible future hardware releases? He's your guy. Wondering about what the PlayStation Network outage might mean long-term for Sony? That's a softball. Kingdom Hearts 3 release date? He's probably not going to be able to field that one.

We'll think up some more questions, in addition to those, but we want your queries as well. This is Feedback after all, where we want to put you in the picture. Just hit us in the comments below, and look for your question to be read on-air next week!

It isn’t often that the games industry is rocked by two massive news stories in a week, but that’s precisely what went down over the past few days, and, boy, has it been a whirlwind. Not only are millions and millions of PlayStation 3 owners scrambling to ensure their identities aren’t stolen in the wake of last week’s attack on the PlayStation Network, but gamers everywhere are speculating furiously about what Nintendo’s newly confirmed Wii successor might be now that we know it’s going to be playable at E3 2011. Oh, and there just happens to be a little thing called the Gears of War 3 multiplayer beta that a whole mess o’ folks are playing at the moment, so that’s on the discussion agenda as well.

It’s a full show, and to guide you through it all is your host Adam Sessler and our illustrious panel: Stephen Johnson, Michael Leffler, and Nikole Zivalich. Enjoy!

Miyamoto Asks Fans To 'Wait' For Kid Icarus News

Nintendo stated in their Tokyo Earnings Briefing that they plan on releasing one Wii title a month starting in May, and that Kid Icarus: Uprising is flying towards a Summer 2011 release date. The company previously mentioned that since they've been working very diligently on hardware like their new console that's coming out at E3 and their Nintendo 3DS handheld, that they're now shifting gears to focus on making games. Promising one new title coming out per month in Japan for the console, now that's a great step in the right direction.

Nintendo's release schedule is as follows:

Mario Kart 3DS Preview

It just wouldn't be a piece of Nintendo hardware without the launch of a Mario Kart game, and the 3DS is no exception: According to Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto speaking at a French press event, Mario Kart 3DS will be coming out in 2011. Not only that, Miyamoto also dropped a few details on the next Nintendo console, codenamed Project Cafe (or Wii 2.) According to Miyamoto, Nintendo has at least considered the idea of letting gamers use the 3DS as a controller for its next console.

We have very few concrete details on what we can expect from the game, but, if I know Nintendo, it will feature all the iconic characters you love from previous Mario Kart game and many of the same tracks from previous Mario Kart games. This is not a dig on Nintendo at all: Mario Kart is one of the most fun franchises of all time; it doesn't need to be improved at all.

Nintendo Plans To Remake More Classics For 3DS  -- Miyamoto Wants A Link to the Past

Nintendo head Shigeru Miyamoto recently spoke to EDGE and told them that the company is shifting gears to focus more on software for the Nintendo 3DS and plans to remake even more classic games like The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past for the new handheld console. He mentions that the lack of first party Nintendo titles out recently is because they were focusing on developing hardware and now they're ready to make and release great games once more.

He told EDGE, "We spent a lot of time developing 3DS, for games for the future, so from now on I think we’ll focus more on gaming and we are releasing lots of games this year.”

Is this the Wii 2? Nintendo has released an official statement confirming a new console, codenamed "Project Cafe", will be playable at E3 2011. No details on the new Nintendo console have been announced except for the fact that it will arrive in 2012. The company promises to announce the console's specs and more during the annual industry trade show later in June.

Here's the statement from Nintendo:

"Nintendo has decided to launch in 2012 a system to succeed Wii, which the company has sold 86.01 million units on a consolidated shipment basis between its launch in 2006 and the end of March 2011.

We will show a playable model of the new system and announce more specifications at the E3 Expo, which will be held June 7-9, 2011, in Los Angeles.”

Super Mario Galaxy

Super Mario will be making an appearance on the 3DS and the upcoming game will be using its two greatest titles(in my humble opinion) as inspiration. Shigeru Miyamoto told the attendees of a press event that the next Mario game for the 3DS will be a combination of Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario 64. If you're going to look at past games to help shape your next title, these aren't bad choices. He went on to promise the game would be “completely original, and coming this year."
