Mutant Mudds, an original platformer coming soon to Nintendo 3DS’ eShop. I’ve been kind of sleeping on this, like everyone does with every Renegade Kid game, but this looks fun, in a “‘90s PC shareware platformer” kind of way.

And while we’ve seen the sidescrolling, plane-switching gimmick on DSiWare already with Shantae: Risky’s Revenge, it still seems like an engaging mechanic here, plus this title will be able to take advantage of the 3DS’s stereoscopic 3D to emphasize the different planes.

Bit.Trip Saga played on a Nintendo 3Ds at E3. Here, you can see Bit.Trip Core and Bit.Trip Void demonstrated on the handheld. They look exactly like their WiiWare counterparts, except on a smaller screen, but I suppose that’s exactly what people are hoping for.

Last week, Gaijin Games announced that it’s also releasing a Wii disc collection called Bit.Trip Complete. That version will include all six Bit.Trip titles, plus 120 new challenges and a soundtrack sampler. I wonder if we’ll see any of that extra content on the 3DS edition?

Zelda-style, top-down stage in Super Mario 3DS. I’d heard about this tribute mentioned in several E3 reports, but here’s a brief look at what everyone’s talking about.

The level “emulates the room-to-room design, top-down perspective, and basic room layout of a dungeon from the first Legend of Zelda.” It has staple puzzles like “torches that Mario has to light with fireballs to open switches.”

JC played Super Mario at E3, and like many others who had a go at it, he had difficulties with the game’s isometric perspective. I’m really worried that Nintendo’s insistence in requiring the stereoscopic 3D effects for accurate platforming will make this not very fun at all…

Reggie Fils-Aime announcing 3DS games at E3 … in 3D. It’s like you’re there, in the red-wristband section of Nintendo’s E3 conference! For one moment frozen in time forever!
I would have taken more pictures, but I was actually there to take several hundred pictures (with a real camera) for Joystiq’s liveblog, which I would love to think that some of you were following. This was the first time since I’ve gone to E3 that I didn’t write the text for the liveblog — Griffin McElroy covered that admirably — but those pixxxx were all me.

First Nano Assault footage captured with a shakycam. The first portion of this clip shows a minute-and-a-half boss fight, followed by a three-minute stage playthrough.

This plays nothing like Shin’en’s previous, technically impressive shoot’em ups, but I like this different direction, as I wasn’t fond of its Iridion or Nanostray releases.

Much props to the guys at Nintendo World Report for recording the only video I’ve seen online for Nano Assault. As usual, they killed it with their E3 video coverage.

Mario Kart 3DS shooting for 8-player online

It will likely surprise no one that Mario Kart 3DS will have online races, as the feature really helped with the popularity of Mario Kart DS despite its clunkiness.

Something new and unexpected that will be included in Mario Kart 3DS when the sequel releases this holiday season, though, is support for double the players — up to eight gamers will be able race each other.

Nintendo’s Hideki Konno talked to JC about Mario Kart 3DS' online multiplayer, and said: “Our goal right now is to have the same number of players for both local wireless and multiplayer over Wi-Fi.” The company wants to first make sure that it will still run at 60 frames per second in both 3D and 2D modes while online.

[Update: I’m a doofus and forgot Mario Kart DS has 8-player local races — it’s been a while! Anyway, forget all this and watch the MK demo track after the break.]

Tekken 3D footage and details. There’s little info on this project — it’s likely still very early into development — but we can at least watch a decent amount of video from the tech demo Namco Bandai showed off at E3 (skip to 1:00).

Series producer Katsuhiro Harada, unafraid to pop the collar on his pink shirt for the cameras, also shared some details. What we know so far, thanks to GameSpot:

  • 60 frames per second even with 3D enabled
  • Asuka, Bryan, Heihachi, Kazuya, and Lilli appeared in the interactive (not playable) demo
  • Harada wants to include “all the characters that people are familiar with from past installments”, plus a few surprises with the lineup and features

What we don’t know:

  • If this experience will be Tekken Tag 2 or Tekken 6 or Tekken vs Street Fighter or something else
  • Release date, online matches, etc.
  • If there’s a pet-raising mode with Kuma/Panda

Six minutes of Shinobi 3DS, demonstrated on IGN Live earlier today. The video is squished during the first 20 seconds before the action begins, but it fixes eventually.

While we don’t get to see any of the fancy juggling/combos that Griptonite is known for putting in its games, presumably this is just the first level and those air-combos will come later in the game. We do get to watch the 3D battles on horseback, though!

Wii U tantrum scene by Joseph Joestar (click for a larger image). Considering how expensive the controller will likely be, you won’t want to take out your gaming frustrations on the WiiPad. Maybe just find a rolled up pair of socks or something to fling at the wall. Or scream into a pillow. These are much cheaper alternatives.
Because we’re doomed to hear awful, awful Wii U puns for the next couple of years, let’s just get them out of our system right now. So, Wii U? More like:
Pii U
Wii U T
Wii Ew
Wiiuwiiuwii Wiiuwiiuwii Wiiuwiiuwii
Wii U No Make Real Console?
Amirite? No. I never am.

Partial release schedule for 3DS/DS/eShop

Since Nintendo showed very little of its third-party handheld slate yesterday, we’ll have to rely on these newly released lists to get an idea of when other developers will be putting out their Nintendo DS, 3DS, eShop, and DSiWare games in North America.

Please keep in mind that these are incomplete lists and not meant to indicate the full slate of games Nintendo and third-party publishers have in store. And don’t expect to see any surprises like Solatorobo or Senran Kagura.

E3 sizzle reel for third-party 3DS games. Nintendo was light on third-party reveals for the 3DS at its show yesterday — perhaps we’ll here more about them today? — but we did get this video of mostly announced titles.

Mario and Sonic judo flipping each other seems fun, Ace Combat 3D looks alright, and Cave Story 3D is coming along nicely. Shame we couldn’t get more Tekken footage.
