Systems: PS3
Expected Release Date : November 1, 2011

Treasure hunter Nathan Drake returns for a third adventure in Uncharted 3. This one takes him to the Arabian desert in search of the fabled "Atlantis of the Sands." Of course, it won't be a pleasure trip, and Drake will end up tangling with a shadowy organization that puts his skills and stamina to the test.

Uncharted 3 features greatly expanded co-op and competitive adventure modes. There will be new combat features including automatic ammunition pickup and the ability to fight multiple enemies at once. The desert setting has allowed the team to focus on organic graphical effects featuring smoke, water, and sand. The game will even be playable in Stereoscopic 3D, provided of course that the player has a 3D TV. Check out the full preview here!

Systems: Wii
Expected Release Date : TBA 2011

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword will be the first home console Zelda game since 2006's Twilight Princess. Link begins the game in his floating homeland of Skyloft, but his discovery of the talking, magical Skyward Sword catapults him into an adventure in the world below. Like the Link of Twilight Princess, this Link will be a young man, and the Skyward Sword will assume a female form when speaking with Link.

Skyward Sword will feature 1:1 motion controls using a Wii MotionPlus-capable controller, which will be used for sword fighting as well as for controlling Link's arsenal of tools such as a boomerang and slingshot. Although there were some hiccups with the demonstration of the motion controls at Nintendo's main E3 2010 presentation, reviewers who have demoed the game report that the controls actually work well and feel natural.
