Tiny Cartridge 3DS

New Nintendo 3DS trailers, Ocarina of Time 3D’s motion controls, and more

Along with all the hardware mini-tons, we’re seeing new 3DS trailers and hearing a lot of game info from Nintendo World 2011 tonight, including news that Ocarina of Time 3D will have optional motion controls: reports from the show indicate that you can physically move the system around to direct the in-game camera!

We also now know the 10 games (more like 8) that will launch with the Nintendo 3DS in Japan. Nintendo picked a variety of titles to attract different audiences:

  • Nintendogs + Cats (three editions; much like Wu-Tang, Nintendogs/cats are for the children)
  • Winning Eleven 3DSoccer (obligatory sports game)
  • Super Street Fighter IV (for hardcore gamers)
  • Sengoku Musou Chronicle (for musou fans)
  • Tobidasu! Puzzle Bobble (for puzzle fans)
  • Ridge Racer 3D (obligatory racing game)
  • Combat of Giants (obligatory shovelware)
  • Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle (for casual gamers and those anticipating the Ace Attorney crossover, so pretty much everyone)

And now, lots of videos!
