-Monster Hunter, Dynasty Wars, Culdcept, Kingdom Hearts
-system update that supports 3D video recording and a revamped store
-Circle pad Add-on is definitely real, it will be used with many other games (like Resident Evil and Metal Gear). Will cost about $15 and needs 1 AAA battery.
My thoughts: definitely more Japanese focused, but the official dates for SM3DL and MK7 are welcome. As is Mario Tennis and Fire Emblem.
Just read through this list... and it's looking very light on "west appealing" games in the near term, and more games using the add-on pad than I expected so soon. Monster Hunter we knew, but add:
- Metal Gear Snake Eater
- Ace Combat
- Kingdom Hearts
- "And More"
Games that require it will be indicated by the "Nintendo Eyesore" logo
Then Ninty shares dropped another
5% after the announcement...
[EDIT] Wait, it TAKES a AAA battery? This thing needs a battery to operate, not adds battery capacity? Oh, my, Miyamoto...Also
