Conjecture Countdown: One more day!

With only one more day of waiting before the debut of the diminished E3, we've decided to get serious and offer up some real predictions about what we will -- and won't -- see at the show. Check after the jump for the breakdown, by writer, of the good, the bad, and the ugly sides of our E3 hopes and fears.

Possible English-language Phantom Hourglass box

It's considerably less blue than than the Japanese box art, but word around the campfire is that this may be the box we're all going to be opening in October for The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass. While it seems a little less playful than the Japanese counterpart, the brown background seems very much in keeping with the series. And we just love Link's expression!

First 6 minutes of Phantom Hourglass shown

YouTube user vladimire356 recently imported The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass and, as a reader of DS Fanboy, took video of the game's opening movie and emailed us the link. It doesn't stop there, though, as we're given a look at the beginning gameplay segments of the title, also.

Now, if you're one who just loves to have things spoiled for you, go ahead and head past the post break for the video.

DS releases for the week of June 18th

Welcome to an incredible week for Nintendo fans! This week, the DS (and the Wii as well!) will see some highly anticipated titles make their debut, and a late addition to last week's releases is now available as well -- the budget Brain Buster Puzzle Pak shipped after last week's announcements. Not that we need anything extra after looking at this line-up:
  • Brothers in Arms DS
  • Full Metal Alchemist Trading Card Game
  • Sim City DS
  • Time Ace
  • Transformers: Autobots
  • Transformers: Deceptacons
  • Zendoku
While you agonize over your choices this week, let's check out the releases for the rest of the world. It's a big week for Japan -- Phantom Hourglass hits shelves there this week!

DS Daily: Is Phantom Hourglass still your most wanted?

Way back in January, we asked you what game you wanted most this year, and The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass won by a ridiculous margin. Since then, we've learned more about the game, and seen more of how it looks. We also know that there are other goodies to anticipate this year. So now that we're approaching the halfway point of 2007, we thought we'd ask -- is Phantom Hourglass still your top choice, particularly now that Pokémon Diamond and Pearl are out?

First Nintendo Short Cuts entry: it's all about the guy in green

BigZeldaFan14: omg omg
BIGGESTZeldaFan14: omg wut?
BigZeldaFan14: check it out theres a contest 4 nintendo movies
BIGGESTZeldaFan14: 4realz ?
BigZeldaFan14: yah click teh link
BIGGESTZeldaFan14: omg i have 2 make sumthin about link he's soooooo kewl
BigZeldaFan14: lol have u ever made movie b4?
BIGGESTZeldaFan14: no but i look @ utube everyday XD XD XD and i have mac
BigZeldaFan14: o ok

The above is a re-creation of (our assumption of) the circumstances behind the creation of the very first entry in Nintendo's Short Cuts Showcase. Let us warn you: if you weren't convinced before that Link is the #1 coolest game character EVAR ... well, you'll probably be exactly the same after watching this video. But you'll have laughed, at least. It may not be the best video we'll see in this contest, but its heart is in the right place.

We here at DS Fanboy would like to encourage everyone to enter the contest, if only so we can watch your videos. But if one of you guys wins after seeing it here, you so owe us a dollar. Remember, we're here writing because we fail at making movies. Let us live vicariously through you!

Zelda: Phantom Hourglass boxart

The Japanese boxart for The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass is up on Amazon for all to see. We're hugely excited about the new Zelda, and advise you check here for the screens we showed you last week. It's coming out on Saturday July 23rd, exactly 11 years after the Nintendo 64 hit the shelves. It's highly unusual for a game to come out on a Saturday in Japan, where Thursday is the traditional release day for new titles. Whatever -- we want to get our hands on Phantom Hourglass as soon as possible!
