Iwata Discusses DS Successor, Wii Zelda/Vitality Sensor to Come this Year

07 Jan, 2010

Satoru Iwata recently teased (in an interview with Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun,) that the next generation Nintendo handheld will be able to read movements, stating that the DS will need “highly detailed graphics, and it will be necessary to have a sensor with the ability to read the movements of people playing”. The article also states that the next Legend of Zelda game is to be out by the end of the year (no word yet on whether that release date is Japan-exclusive) and a detailed press conference of the Vitality Sensor will occur in July. Gamers can expect all three discussed products to heavily feature in Nintendo’s E3 presentation later this year.

    Well, if it has the Tegra Chip, I would like the Tegra 2 better, then sign me up, oh who am I kidding, I am going to get one any ways, reason why I didn’t buy the DSi.

    I would like to say that this article felt a little bit short, a little more depth into the workings of the press release and article in question would be nice, and breaking the sections of Game announcement away from Hardware announcement, it just makes things convenient. Oh, and a link to said article in question would be nice too, I would like to read further, but can’t, well not linked from here anyways…
