While I'm personally more excited about the original work Nintendo can do with the Nintendo 3DS, I'll take remakes of great games while we wait.

Star Fox 64 3D is a great example, and like the upcoming The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time, it sounds like Nintendo is making sure the update offers something fresh for players new and old.

Speaking to retailers at a briefing in Japan, Nintendo revealed a handful of new details about the upcoming game. The game will be playable in three modes, for instance: 3DS mode, Nintendo 64 mode, and Battle mode. The 3DS mode will use the handheld's gyroscope to control your ship; the Nintendo 64 mode will likely use the 3DS circle pad for this movement.

The new battle mode will support up to four players for four 3DS systems, playable via download play. During this mode, players will be identified by a photo of their face, which will presumably be snapped using the 3DS camera. This mode will not be playable via Wi-Fi connection, which will come as a disappointment for folks like me who don't have any local friends with 3DS units. (I need to make new friends.)

Star Fox 64 3D is out in Japan on July 14; it's expected to hit other territories later this year.
