Seriously, there's video of over FIFTY games!

Nintendo recently started their Touch! Tour event in Japan, and today
released on the internet many videos that are airing at the event. There are
seven videos, showcasing well over 30 different games across the company's
three platforms (or pillars, if you like it that way). Highlights of the
videos include updated looks at Fire Emblem GC, Star Fox Assault (newly
titled... again), Geist, Odama, and other titles we haven't heard much of
anything from since E3.

These three titles in particular are looking a good deal better. Star Fox
Assault looks absolutely stunning in single player. Fire Emblem is looking
much improved from it's early video at E3, and Geist appears to be taking an
even more cinematic feel and also supports slightly improved graphics.
nSpace has also removed the game's obnoxiously fluorescent HUD colors,
thankfully. Odama, the quirky military pinball game from Yoot Saito, is
looking even more insane than before.

On the DS front, we get our first glimpse of Touch! Kirby, a game in which
Kirby appears to be constantly rolling, and the player must use a "magic
paintbrush" to form bridges and platforms that Kirby can use to progress
through the levels. While it seems similar to Yoshi's Touch and Go, Kirby
plays much faster and is much more action orientated than Yoshi and Baby
Mario's DS outing. The DS video also shows an updated version of Animal
Crossing DS, which has more of a 3D perspective now, with a moving camera.

As for Game Boy Advance games, one of the videos contains various
commercials for upcoming games, and the other two are full on game footage.
Most of the footage has already been seen, or is of games only releasing in
Japan. There are a few exceptions, as we get our first glimpse of Mario
Party Advance, and our first video glimpse of Yoshi's Universal Gravitation
(a platforming game staring Yoshi that utilizes the rotational sensor game
cart).

Below is a list of links to all the videos available. They play through a
Macromedia Flash plug-in, and take a fair amount of time to load even on a
decent connection speed:

GameCube Video 3

Only watched the DS video, but the graphics look LOADS better than I
first thought. I just feel a bit gutted that it's not coming out in the
UK soon enough!
