Expected Release Date: TBA 2011

Arguably one of the greatest games of all time, the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time will be reincarnated in breathtaking 3D this year on Nintendo's new portable, the 3DS. Players will once again be able to experience the world of Hyrule, battle Ganon's minions, recover the master sword, and restore peace to the kingdom, all while on the go.

Some of the new features added include gyroscopic camera controls and touch screen navigation of the items menu. With so many iterations of the game completed, you can be sure there are some additions we have yet to discover. With Ocarina of Time and this year's release (hopefully) of Skyward Sword, 2011 is shaping up to be a great year for Zelda fans. Check out the full preview here!

Expected Release Date : TBA 2011

Keen to take advantage of their fanbase's rabid hunger for a sequel, Nintendo will (finally) be releasing a sequel to Kid Icarus, subtitled Uprising, later this year. Fans of the original might find some of the changes a bit jarring, as this is no longer primarily a platformer. It controls as an on-rails 3D shooter while in flight (a la Star Fox 64) and a 'free-roaming' 3D shooter while on the ground.

Fans needn't worry about the difficulty level being softened here, as it's being developed by Project Sora, the development team behind Super Smash Bros. Brawl. From what's been shown in the trailers you can be sure to expect an absolutely frantic pace and more that a few epic boss battles. Look here to read our full preview.
