This year at the San Diego Comic-Con, Nintendo will be returning to the floor. At the convention, which is being held from July 21st to 24th, they will be having a variety of games that include Mario Kart 3DS, Kid Icarus: Uprising, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, and, as a special appearance, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword! Nintendo will be showing off Skyward Sword’s “public playable debut in North America.” Jump inside for the full list of games, Nintendo’s words on Skyward Sword’s appearance, and for my own thoughts.
The official Nintendo Press Release used these exact words when they described Skyward Sword’s appearance at the Comic-Con:
The interesting part of this quote is the “public playable debut in North America.” Could this mean that they are going to show us something that they didn’t show us at E3? Like a new trailer? Possibly even a whole new area for exploration and demonstration? This little tid-bit of information is making me very curious about what Nintendo has in store for the San Diego Comic-Con.
Also, for this event, Nintendo has commissioned an artist to create a large chalk drawing to celebrate the launch of Ocarina of Time 3D for the 3DS and for the upcoming launch of Skyward Sword. The art will be created on-site over several days at Nintendo’s Gaming Lounge.
