  • Move Aside PS Vita, this is my first priority… :)

  • karasuKumo

    Looking forward to the release, still prefer the TP style though.

    Nooo! Release a gold 3DS for OoT instead!

  • *sigh* i really really dont want to buy a wii motion… i need to find a friend that lends me oneeeee

    • I recommend getting Fling Smash, which comes with a free remote plus.

      Here in Europe, it’s sometimes cheaper than a stand alone remote plus!

      • Yeah, seems like those packages that incluse wii motion and game would be the best road to take..

      Dude I know it sucks to have to buy it again but at least every Wiimote has it built in now so you just have to buy a newer Wiimote. That or a game it came packaged with (like Buntar0 said). Get Red Steel 2. I got it recently (just for the MotionPlus lol) and it’s pretty fun. :D Oh and Nintendo is gonna release a Golden Wiimote to promote this game. XD So yeah it’s just a Wiimote and it’s gold but still you could buy that one (it’ll have built-in MotinPlus and it’ll look cool because it’s gold lol).

      • I will try -_- it would be a loooot easier if i lived in the US tho…

  • One of the highlights from Nintendo’s conference! Great looking, I’m quite hyped for this!

  • Where was that Xenoblade or Last Story or Pandora’s Tower?

    • Arcm

      Honestly, that is the only news I care about.

      But the smash bros announcement was nice. : )

    • XypherCode

      well the week’s not over so let’s just wait and see :D

    • Zero_Destiny

      They can still come. Really Nintendo seemed real focus on getting people hyped for WiiU, getting people on board for the 3DS, and pushing Zelda for it’s big 25th anniversary. I think this was a good idea for them to do. Those games won’t really be the big sales kinda game sad to say. Let’s not give up hope we can still see them but I think Nintendo had more pressing matters to deal with other than a few cool Wii games for a niche audience. I would love to see them though I’m with you on being a little disappointed in not getting them. lol

    • PrinceHeir

      yes where the hell are they? O_O

  • gold wii !

    then you said wii mote that was mean :{

  • Zero_Destiny

    I’m really in love with this game’s look. I can’t wait to get it. I hope we can see it in November so I can I spoil myself and buy it as a birthday present to me. Oh who am I kidding I can just buy it as Christmas present to me when push comes to shove. lol But serious this style looks great and it’s Zelda so I know the gameplay will be good. Very excited to play this. I’m in love with it already. :)

  • This year? Awesome. But where’s Last Story or Xenoblade?

  • Still gotta wait until this Christmas!? Gahhh!!!!
