The latest news from Inside Games is reporting some details from Nintendo’s Tokyo earnings briefing. Here’s a brief rundown of what to expect later in the day.
- Kid Icarus will be released in Summer or beyond
- 3D Classics version of Excite Bike will be distributed as a free download with the 3DS’ late May firmware update.
- The 3DS Virtual Console will start off with Game Boy and Game Boy Color. Following this, Nintendo would like to look into the possibility for other platforms.
- Wii’s Vitality Sensor peripheral is still under development.
- The Wii version of rhythm game Rhythm Heaven makes use of button controls.
- Nintendo will be releasing one Wii title a month starting in May. The schedule is: Pandora’s Tower (May), 007 Golden Eye (June), Wiimote Plus Variety (July), and Rhythm Heaven (summer). Zelda Skyward Sword, Kirby and Just Dance 2 are all due in calendar 2011 too.
- Wiimote Plus Variety is presumably the Japanese version of North America’s Wii Play Motion, which has yet to be announced for Japan.
