Nintendo dazzle gamers
But no Mario or Zelda
Nintendo has taken the wraps off its SpaceWorld lineup. The bad news is that neither Shigeru Miyamoto's rumoured Mario game nor Zelda appear on the list. Miyamoto apparently told the press that neither would be ready for launch. The good news? Well it's huge, and full of interesting titles from Nintendo, Sega, EA and Hudson. From Nintendo we have Luigi's Mansion, Pikmin, Super Smash Bros Melee, Star Fox Adventures, Wave Race: Blue Storm and Doubutsu Bancho as expected, along with Eternal Darkness and Animal Forest Plus. From Sega there will be Sonic Adventure 2, Virtua Striker 3 Ver.2002, Phantasy Star Online and Super Monkey Ball. From EA FIFA 2002 and SSX Tricky, From Hudson Bomberman Generation. And finally, from… From Software, we have Rune, not the converted PC Viking-em-up but a wholly original RPG title. The large number of first party titles and titles born through close ties is typically Nintendo. We'll have more information on the wonders of SpaceWorld during press day, which is tomorrow.
