Links of the Day - Nintendo At GDC Edition

The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks Announced - The next DS game for Zelda has been announced by Nintendo. The release date is sometime 2009 so I expect around Christmas. The game is based on the cartoon look from Wind Waker but this time Link's mode of transportation is a train rather than boat and he has the ability to control other creatures. As the video shows, it is classic Zelda. Classic is good in this case.

Wii Update To Support SDHC - For those that love the Virtual Console, the issue of space has become an issue as the 512kb that the console comes with just isn't enough space to hold all those games. Well, Nintendo finally has issued a solution, available today for the Wii where SD cards of up to 32GB are supported for exporting off the consoles memory. A video below demonstrates the update.

Wii Arcade Console Launched - Speaking of the virtual console, a new expansion has been announced by Nintendo called Virtual Console Arcade that ports really old arcade titles to the Wii. The current ones available are Gaplus, Mappy, Starforce and Tower of Druaga. No clue what any of those are.

Final Fantasy Titles for Nintendo - One last bit of Game Developer's Conference info from Nintendo. This time the news that three Final Fantasy games. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a Darklord is a WiiWare title and sequel to My Life as a King. Final Fantasy IV: The After Years is another WiiWare title, a port of the cell phone game sequel from Japan. Last is upcoming release of the original Final Fantasy game from the NES era on the Virtual Console.

Where The Wild Things Are Trailer - Never read the children's book and judging by the trailer I don't think I ever will. If you’re a kid the trailer is probably fascinating but it just reminds me of the people you see on the street is costumes holding signs for a local business. HD trailer at the link above.
