Nintendo just announced that it was developing a game set in the world of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.

In Japan, the game is being called The Legend of Zelda: 神々のトライフォース 2 (Kamigami no Triforce, which was A Link to the Past in the English language localization). However, it doesn't yet have a title in the West, it seems.

The game will feature a new storyline and new dungeons. Link will also have the ability to turn into a drawing on the wall to make his way around corners.

Well that was one hell of a conference from Nintendo. Not much on the WiiU but damn if my 3DS doesn't have a shot of use coming in the future.

OH SHIT Zelda Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons in the 3ds eshop May 30th. Nintendo might as well not even go to E3, whatever they show there can't top today.

I went in for Fire Emblem Awakening and MH3U as well. Also put in an order for the XL CPP from Nintendo's site. Goin' all in, baby! :)

FE: A is my current pick for handheld game of the year. I have close to 40 hours on my current file, which probably isn't much compared to others on the board, but I've NEVER sank that much time into a single handheld game.

I'll have to check my activity log for my total time, but I know it passed the final fantasy music game for most played on my 3ds.

That had better be configurable or I'm going to have to turn off the wifi when not using it.

Well 2/3 of the Big 3 have new hardware to show off, they'd get lost in the shuffle. Don't they do a lot of big reveals at the TGS in Japan now?

Joystiq:

Wii U sales may be struggling but Nintendo's download business is booming. As part of its financial briefing today, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata revealed that the company's downloadable game sales surpassed ¥16 billion ($160.9 million), more than doubling sales of the previous year. Download sales also handily eclipsed the banner year of 2010, when "both the Wii and Nintendo DSi systems were actively used."

Iwata noted that the majority of Nintendo customers have taken their 3DS online. That includes 87 percent of users in Japan and 83 percent in America. Europe's connection rate is significantly lower at 57 percent. The Wii U, meanwhile, has an 80 percent connection rate worldwide.

Iwata also mentioned the surprising viewing habits for the company's Nintendo Direct presentations. For recent presentations, he said, "it became common to see total views for a single video reach five hundred to six hundred thousand in a matter of about 10 days on the Nintendo eShop while they did not show apparent growth on YouTube." In fact, it seems that the eShop is now the most popular source for Nintendo Direct, accounting for "approximately 60 to 70 percent" of total views. That might sound like a surprising statistic, especially given the immense presence of YouTube, but Iwata noted that the eShop appeals to viewers "who do not own their own PCs or smart devices."

Now you can have it again for play on your tablet. I'll be downloading it via the Famicom modem later.

Dumbass question time. If I hit the TV button, all I get is TV controls. What am I doing wrong?
lol - that is the tv remote... if you just want to play the VC game on your tablet, just boot up the Wii U via the tablet and launch it. Leave your TV on the other source (cable, etc).
