    Nintendo World 2011 - Day 1 Impressions

    [CENTER]


    Nintendo World 2011 marked the first time the Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo’s upcoming 3D handheld successor which launches on February 26 in Japan, was playable for the general public. Up to this point, the 3DS had been shown at E3 in June 2010 and again at Nintendo’s conference in late September of the same year, both events whose attendance was restricted to the media and press.


    Given that Nintendo hasn’t organized a Spaceworld event in nearly 10 years, Nintendo World 2011, a three-day event from January 8 through 10, comes as a welcome surprise for gamers and press alike. Part of it is due to necessity for Nintendo. It’s impossible for Nintendo to convey the 3DS’s glasses-free 3D screen with the traditional big screen trailer or on someone’s computer, so they needed to let the general public see the actual handheld for themselves to decide whether they would be impressed with the 3D technology or not. As with a majority of game trade shows held in Japan, the venue for Nintendo World 2011 was Makuhari Messe in Chiba, just directly east of the actual city of Tokyo. This is also the venue for the yearly Tokyo Game Show (TGS), which Nintendo is infamous for not participating in, as well as JAMMA, Jump Festa, and the Amusement Game Show.



    Nintendo World 2011 was not designed for a heavy media presence. Traditional trade show events clearly outline the boundaries between the media and the general public in relation to photography, the receiving of informational materials and access privileges. Nintendo World 2011 did not draw this distinction in an obvious way: people could attend as press, but the only advantage they had was taking pictures of the venue and kiosks. Otherwise, everyone was entitled to the same information from the 3DS demo kiosks and from the stage shows that were thrown. The press could only play the exact same demos as everyone else and were not allowed to cut in line as is usually allowed at TGS, either. This was definitely a public event designed to show off the 3DS’s glasses-free 3D visuals. Moreover, it did not feature any original DS or Wii games. This was strictly 3DS.
