Revolution Controller showing confirmed – Iwata keynote to reveal all

Revolution Controller showing confirmed – Iwata keynote to reveal all

"SPOnG can confirm that Satoru Iwata will show the Nintendo Revolution controller in all its glory on 16th of this month – a mere three days away. This confirmation, coming from a fresh Nintendo source, follows news from last month in which we exclusively revealed Nintendo plans, a full version of which you can read here.

The announcement will take place at around 11.20AM this Friday at the Makuhari Messe Convention Center in Tokyo. Iwata will fully outline the Revolution controller, as well as show some software, including, from what we have gathered, the game formerly known as Mario 128.

“Mario is the game that will show off the Revolution better than anything else in development right now,” a trusted and highly-placed source told SPOnG today. “You have to remember that the Revolution will take standard GameCube controller input and this is not solely for GC backward compatibility and retro gaming. The Revolution controller concept is merely an option for developers, something totally new, as was the Nintendo DS.”

SPOnG will be interviewing a Nintendo executive in the aftermath of the announcement, so check back on Friday for full coverage of the Revolution emergence, from the inside, direct from Japan." [more]
