So I’ve always been more of a PSP guy, but I’ve been a Zelda fan for waaaay longer. These new Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D screens are absolutely beautiful and really have me second guessing myself on which next-gen handheld I’m going to pick up.

Like pretty much everyone who ever touched an N64, Ocarina of Time was my jam back in the day. I have a feeling that Nintendo is going to sell a lot portables to nostalgic fans that they didn’t even know they wanted a 3DS. Seriously, if they remake Majora’s Mask its done…give all my moneys to Nintendo.

In addition to showing off the new trailer for Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Iwata also revealed a new Super Mario title for the 3DS. Iwata spoke briefly about the problem of depth that 3D platformers have had since the days of the N64, and that the solution for these issues lies in the 3DS.

Curiously, the logo for the upcoming game also features a tail. Will we be seeing a return of the Super Leaf or Tanooki Suit from Super Mario Bros 3? For the answer to that question, Iwata says we’ll have to wait until E3. Read more… »

Nintendo revealed a brand new trailer for Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword today during Iwata’s keynote address. While they maintain that the game isn’t quite finished yet, it sure is looking good to me.

During the keynote Iwata also spoke briefly about Zelda’s upcoming 25th anniversary, but didn’t reveal any specific details about how Nintendo would be commemorating the event. If you have any ideas in how you’d like to see them do that, take it to the comments.

I have good news and I have bad news.

Two years ago  Gaijin Games gave us Bit. Trip Beat. That little retro-rhythm title gave birth to one of my favourite series’ of all time. Sadly, the saga of Commander Video ends today. The sixth and final title in the series, Bit.Trip FLUX, landed on WiiWare earlier today. While, I am happy that Gaijin Games will be moving on to what will hopefully be bigger and brighter things, it will certainly sadden me to download the final title in this series.

A demo for Pong Toss Pro – Frat Party Games has also landed on the White Box O’Waggle’s online service. Let me just say that while I’m certain it is going to be terrible, I am unbelievably stoked there is a Beer Pong videogame available -for free- that I can share with all my “frat bros” for a good laugh. Hit the jump for the rest of this week’s downloadables.

The Bit.Trip series may be on its way out, but that isn’t slowing Gaijin Games down in the slightest. In just a few short years, the studio has gone from developer, to publisher, and now parent company. Gaijin has now announced their “extremely hostile takeover” of Jason Cirillo’s Robotube Games.

Robotube is best known for their series of educational videos - Bit Museam, they are also the studio behind web-based puzzle games such as Bloktonik and Zyrx. During Blip Festival 2009, the two developers teamed to create a game in less than 24 hours. Let’s hope they make many more wonderful games together.

Nintendo DLC Update: 2/21/11

“Not everyone is cut out to be a president, but every Wii™ and Nintendo DSi™ user must act as commander-in-chief of his or her own gaming republic. On this Presidents Day holiday, Nintendo recommends reaching across the aisle in the spirit of bipartisanship, creating harmony between new and classic titles, puzzle games and platformers, sprawling console adventures and crisp hand-held challenges.”

During a panel at Design Innovate Create Explore summit Blizzard’s president, Michael Morhaime, discussed the death of StarCraft Ghost – a title that has been on “indefinite hold” for the better part of a decade. Many of us have lost friends to World of Warcraft, some have lost their lives, and now we’ve lost StarCraft Ghost as well.

Last week, Morhaime mentioned that “They were working on StarCraft Ghost the same time we were working on World of Warcraft and StarCraft II” when “World of Warcraft exploded and we needed to make some resource decisions. It just wasn’t an environment in which a project like (StarCraft Ghost) could succeed.”

Back in the day, I was really looking forward to this. Of course, that was back when my Gamecube was shiny and new, but at least Blizzard is finally getting around to giving us an explanation. It just kind of sucks to hear that it’s because of the software equivalent of heroine.

I realize this review is a little late, but I don’t think fans of Camelot’s Golden Sun series will mind.

After all, they’ve been waiting since 2003 for a sequel to the GBA titles Golden Sun and Golden Sun: The Lost Age. After such a long time coming, is Golden Sun: Dark Dawn, the series’ first DS iteration, worth the wait? Can Camelot capture that same sense of wonder that permeated the first two games? Read on to find out.

Nintendo DLC Update: 2/7/11

Welcome to another exciting week of downloables for a Nintendo console near you. In my opinion, the real winner this week is the LIT demo. In case you missed it when it was first released, LIT is a horror puzzler. Now that there is a free version I would definitely recommend checking it out.

Shawn Johnson Gymnastics and a host of other titles also await you after the jump.

PETA will be thrilled to hear that my personal favorite title of the week is Animal Boxing. Honestly, who wouldn’t want a game where you get to beat down cuddly creatures? Moreover, publisher Gammick Entertainment boasts that Animal Boxing “is one of the first games to require players to invert the Nintendo DSi™ system”. Yes! Animal violence and it’s upside down! Punch Out!! has nothing on this one.

Hit the jump for the rest of this week’s games with funny names.
