Kid Icarus Uprising Non-Interactive Demo - the Kid Icarus demo was pretty nice. If I had one word to describe it, I'd say "Rez". The game is a shooter where you move the cursor over enemies, and it does switch perspectives as you play. Some scenes looked like Space Harrier, and others switched to a more ThunderForce style of play. Very quickly though, the demo had Pit shooting at different layers of enemies, and I couldn't pull my mind off of Rez after that. In fact, Sega - if you're reading this - PLEASE make Rez for the Nintendo 3DS. I'll have other outrageous demands later, so stay tuned. Thank you, Sega.
How to Train Your Dragon (movie trailer) - a movie. It's in 3D. It's like the theater. Honestly, the movie previews were fairly neat, and show Hollywood's commitment to the 3DS system. That said, there's not too much to say about a movie trailer, other than the 3D effects looked great. Other trailers I saw:
Legend of the Guardians (movie trailer)
Tangled (movie trailer)
Target Shooting - The demo station this was set up at was a misnomer - all this demo had me do was look at a 2D picture of block on the mat in front of me! Yes, it turned the 2D block slightly 3D using the 3D camera, but it was lame beyond belief.
Face Ace Tech Demo - This demo was suprisingly awesome. The 3D camera takes a picture of your face, and then wraps that picture around a wireframe. Your character model is then given glasses, a helmet, and in my case, my tongue sticking out. After I was rendered in 3D, within the 3D box, I was directed to wave the 3DS in the air to find my disembodied head (and several clones of my head) flying around. Then, I had to shoot my dopplegangers. Whenever I pointed the camera at one of the booth babes/representatives, they too were added to the game as a bonus shot! It was really entertaining for the few minutes that I played. The Nintendo 3DS is going to revolutionize the gaming scene, and these kinds of demos really drive that point home.
Xevious - The classic top down shooter re-rendered on the Nintendo 3DS. The 3D effect wasn't super pronounced, but was there, and it was fun to shoot around for a few seconds on this one.
Mario Kart Preview - Oh look, it's Mario Kart on a Nintendo system! The game, at this point, doesn't add anything new to the table, but rest assured, this is indeed Mario Kart in 3D. That should be enough to give us all some butterflies in our stomach - it's coming, it's really going to happen!
YES! Still more to talk about on the Nintendo 3DS - CLICK to the next page!
