3DS, Bravely Default: Flying Fairy, Interviews, Iwata Asks, NeoGAF, Nintendo 3DS, Portables, Satoru Iwata,Cheesemeister on the NeoGAF forums has posted a full English translation of the Nintendo Direct Wii U Prevent Event that Nintendo held in Japan on 9/13/12. Here’s the video from that:
Hello, everyone. This is Iwata from Nintendo.
Today I’d like to take about 20 minutes to announce information regarding the Wii U, including 1st-party launch titles, pricing, and the release date.
Also, detailed information on 3rd-party software will be delivered in a separate “Nintendo Direct Wii U Preview” presentation at 11 pm tonight.
Now before I talk about the pricing and release date, I’d like to reiterate what kind of a platform the Wii U is.

This is the Wii U.
The Wii U is Nintendo’s first high-definition game console.
Imagery like what you see now that couldn’t be done by the 6-year-old Wii is now possible.
Not only is the HD-standard 720p resolution supported, but also “Full HD” 1080p.
On top of the increased resolution, the graphics processor can be used to handle various tasks aside from just graphics.
This usage is called “GPGPU.” [Translator’s note: GPGPU stands for General-Purpose computing on Graphics Processing Units.]

Official Nintendo Magazine recently interviewed ZombiU Creative Director Jean-Phillipe Caro and he had this to say about the Wii U and ZombiU:

“We never wanted to reinvent any genre but the fact that is when we decided to change from Killer Freaks to ZombiU we had to rethink what we were going to do. What we have done is talk about old games, old movies, comics – what we like in life about zombies. You have a galaxy of zombie games, movies, comics – the genre is almost dead. People are saying always: the zombie genre is dead. We are not reinventing, we are recycling. What we wanted to do is not a revolution of the survival horror game but what we like is the survival aspect while the horror is part of the zombie thing. I think we are making something fresh with the most innovative console. The Wii U is the most innovate system for the moment on Earth. We didn’t have to make a big innovation on our side – it was all here on the system so that was easier for us.” – ZombiU Creative Director Jean-Phillipe Caro

Namco Bandai Games’ crossover 3DS game, Project X Zone has had another character revealed. The latest issue of Famitsu has revealed that Iris, from Mega Man X4 will be involved in the storyline as an event character. Mega Man X seems to recognize her as “the girl from that Repliforce incident,” which would seemingly indicate Mega Man X4 will be part of PXZ’s history. Iris will be voiced in the Japanese version of the game by Yuko Mizutani in the game, just like she was in Rockman X4. Here’s a scan from Famitsu:image

Here’s what they had to say:

“Toki Tori 2 sprint progress report! Dynamic background blur get! City environment almost done. Porcupine perfect! Dynamic background blur is pretty cool to fool around with. It’s old hat for most developers, but we’re still happy with it 🙂 We hope to be able to get a bit of a diorama effect going with the blur. Like this: . As for the porcupine, @MeintevdS finally got it right. He tried four times to nail it and succeeded in the end. We had faith all along 😉 We’ll get you a snapshot of the new design tomorrow. It looks kinda like a porcusaur now. To be honest, it’s kinda weird…”

As we know Amazon does not sell the original model of the 3DS directly because of their rumored dispute with Nintendo. Maybe they have patched things up now?

Nintendo World Report (NWR): What sets these Nintendo versions apart from the phone/tablet version that will cost much less?

Brittany Aubert (BA): Scribblenauts Unlimited is an entirely new experience. We run on much more powerful hardware, so we’re able to do things like have beautiful hand-drawn HD levels and a crazy number of objects in a level at any time. We also have the precision of the stylus (on the Wii U and 3DS) and lots of buttons to allow the player to interact with the world in the way they feel the most comfortable.

NWR: Does Maxwell control any differently than in past games?

BA: We built off the Super Scribblenauts controls when starting to work on Unlimited. In Super Scribblenauts, the player had the option of switch between d-pad controls and stylus based controls. The 3DS and the WiiU have significantly more buttons than the DS did, so we’re able to provide both movement types without the need to go into a menu and switch.
