Recent Articles: Star Fox 64 3D
Nintendo has gone back and added four of 2011′s biggest retail 3DS games to the 3DS eShop. Super Mario 3D Land, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, Star Fox 64 3D, and Mario Kart 7 are all now available for your downloading pleasure.
Another retail 3DS game, the fashionista fantasy Style Savvy: Trendsetters, will be added to the eShop on October 22.
Here’s a look at the rest of the new additions for Nintendo’s download services this week:
Sparkle Snapshots 3D (3DS eShop) - Use your Nintendo 3DS system’s cameras and this software’s easy-to-use camera settings to take 2D pictures, and then personalize your shots any way you want with layers of stickers, ribbons, pens and other 3D effects.
Gradius (3DS eShop) - Blast your way to victory in this classic side-scrolling shooter.
Puzzler World XL (DSiWare) - Boasting over 1,800 different puzzles, with favorites like Sudoku, crosswords and unique offerings like Link-A-Pix and Pieceword, puzzle fans are sure to find a wealth of fun in this unprecedented collection.
Reel Fishing Ocean Challenge (Wii Shop) - It’s a thrilling fishing experience for novices and master anglers alike!
The calendar has turned over to September and we know what that means… the stingy Summer of games is over and the Fall release rush is finally here! This week’s new release slate blows away almost everything we’ve received in the last three months. There’s truly something for everybody:
- Sony finishes the fight with the Chimera in Resistance 3 (PS3).
- Zombies invade a tropical paradise in the super-hyped Dead Island (PC, PS3, Xbox 360).
- Star Fox 64 3D, one of the greatest space shooters of all time, comes to the 3DS.
- The Wheelman returns for another getaway in Driver: San Francisco (PC, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360).
- Those wacky guys at NIS America return to the wacky world of Disgaea in Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten (PS3)
- Sega’s non-conventional Kinect title Rise of Nightmares slices and dices store shelves.
- And finally, THQ twists the Warhammer license into an action shooter with Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine (PC, PS3, Xbox 360).
Check out the full list of the rest of this week’s new releases after the break. (more…)
If you had a Nintendo 64 back in the day and took time out from leaping on goombas and playing your ocarina, then you certainly must have played Star Fox 64. It has become one of those games that has risen up into classic status alongside Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Mario 64, and Conker’s Bad Fur Day.
And now you can do a barrel roll in 3D! Check out the new trailer above complete with all that stellar voice acting you know and love.
Along with some funky new features to play along with your friends, Star Fox 64 3D should provide us all with that warm blanket of nostalgia we need until Nintendo releases The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.
Star Fox 64 3D will be released on September 9, 2011.
When Dylan Cuthbert first went to Japan to show off a 3D engine for the Game Boy, he was 18 and didn’t speak a word of Japanese. When he came back to work for Nintendo, he worked on his grasp of the language with none other than Miyamoto himself. The father of PixelJunk and the father of Mario engaged in a language exchange while developing Star Fox for the SNES.
This interesting fact came up in the latest “Iwata Asks,” celebrating the Star Fox series and the upcoming Star Fox 64 3D, of which Cuthbert is directing. The interview also touches on the unreleased Star Fox 2, and should be available soon with the other English translations in the 3DS developers section.
More from Reggie Fils-Aime: Star Fox 64 3D is coming in September and will include a four-player battle mode where the 3DS’ camera records your facial expression after a kill. Controlling your Arwing by moving the 3DS as a flight yoke was also confirmed.
Meanwhile, Super Mario 3D was described as “the first 3D Mario game designed for a handheld” and it sees the return of the Tanooki Suit as well as looking a lot like the direct sequel to Super Mario 64 we always wanted. The game will also include side-scrolling and overhead sections. Neat!
Super Mario 3D will be released before the end of 2011.
Nintendo President Satoru Iwata revealed a little bit more about the upcoming 3DS remake Star Fox 64 3D during the publisher’s quarterly financial briefing.
According to Iwata, Star Fox 64 3D will include a new Arrange Mode to give gamers a new take on a classic game: “[W]e are planning to release [...] a newly-arranged version of Star Fox 64, the most well-known game of all the 3D shooting games in the time of Nintendo 64.” He also revealed that the game will include motion controls for piloting an Arwing, though how this’ll square with the 3D display (which really needs to be steady) remains to be seen.
The President also revealed that Nintendo will have a free gift for gamers when the 3DS eShop opens in May, a downloadable “3D Classics” version of Excitebike.
Finally, Iwata reconfirmed that Mario Kart 3DS will be released in 2011. Presumably, we’ll learn more at E3.
