Nightly News Roundup

More E3 Rumors

According to Gameolosophy, E3 2011 is going to be all about 3DS. They claim that 60% of the show will be dedicated to Nintendo’s newest console, and they also say not to look for Project Cafe games to be revealed. However they do expect that all of the new system’s features will be revealed. On top of that, Gameolosophy reports that a popular fps game is getting ported to 3DS. Which game that will be is anybody’s guess, but I can come up with a few popular fps games off the top of my head. Their sources have also told them that many companies have Cafe development kits including Square Enix and Capcom, and that Pikmin 3 is being pushed back to Project Cafe. Keep in mind that everything that has been mentioned is a rumor until proven otherwise.

Retro Studios Working on Project Cafe

I guess this one may be somewhat obvious, since Retro is owned by Nintendo. Anyway, rumors suggest that Retro Studios is working on a new game for Nintendo’s next generation home console, and they claim that the game isn’t Metroid. An insider source has a quote from Retro saying, “It’s a project everyone wants us to do.” What could that project possibly be? A new StarFox or F-Zero seems to be the most likely answer, but we may not receive confirmation for awhile. Retro has nailed Metroid and Donkey Kong already, so it would be natural for StarFox to be next on their list. Sources claim that Retro was among the very first to receive a Cafe development kit, so their game may have been underway for quite some time.

New Details on 3DS Zelda

Wondering what’s new in Ocarina of Time: 3D Edition? Well Nintendo of UK let loose a little bit of information today concerning the Zelda remake, including information on the game’s new “boss challenge” mode. Now you’ll be able to fight bosses that you’ve already beaten, one at a time, or in a continuous chain to challenge your skills. There have to be restraints in place, since it would be too easy with all of the heart containers and Big Goron Sword, but I’m sure the development team has already realized this. Keep your eyes out for Zelda when it launches this June.

    From anything I’ve heard about the project cafe, It’s supposedly the Chinese iQue, combined with 3DS and Wii…

    Which FPS is getting ported to 3DS? $50 says Call of Duty.

    It’s on every other platform, I’m not a fan (sorry guys), and I just wouldn’t be interested if it came out. So it’s probably COD.
