Nintendo Direct August 7th, 2013 recap.

ND813
Earlier today there was a Nintendo Direct broadcast giving the gamers updates on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS games that were touched upon at E3.

Not coming to us from a conference room on a random floor at Nintendo’s headquarters instead, a studio, or at least an all white background. It wasn’t E3 or they figured we didn’t care so it wasn’t touched on this time. Instead Iwata got straight to business!

This is just some of the highlights i was excited by the highlights, to watch the full 28 min presentation(despite the opening screen saying 27) Its added to the end of this.

LOZLINk

They showed gameplay footage of the newest installment in the Legend of Zelda series A Link between Worlds. Of course this caught my attention as its a sequel to one of my favorite LOZ games of all time, A Link to the Past. Iwata pointed out that its a sequel in that it happens after the first, so Ganon is locked away. The landscape of the game is similar but looks like what would happen of a few decades of time. The Link in the game is most likely an ancestor to the other but not the same. He also pointed out straight from the beginning that the game features not one but two Triforces, one of the light and one of the dark, so im excited to check it out. Following this they previewed graphics from Wind Waker HD. It looks crisper but since the broadcast was not in HD and i wasn’t watching in HD its hard to tell. Iwata also pointed out that they cleaned and sped up the wind actions from the game and finished this section with explaining that Wind Waker takes place before Phantom Hourglass. (which you would know if you bought the Hyrule Historia)

Later in the presentation they touched on the fact that it’s the Year of Luigi. Announcing that for the first time ever Luigi himself would be a playable character in Smash Brothers. No video just a screen shot of the green brother in battle. He then moved on to touch on Mario and Luigi Dream Team pointing out the various dream worlds and features that are in the game.

Mario_&_Luigi_Dream_Team

So while they showed a lot of cool stuff, still nothing other than the price that makes me really want to pick up a Wii U. Maybe when they finally show gameplay footage or announce the Zelda game in production for it, will i be tempted.

Note: the US version would not let me embed it. so this is the uk version for the gist of it all.

What are your thoughts? Excited for the Nintendo yet? Still on the fence? Let us know in the comments below!

Nintendo E3 wrap up.

Nintendo started off by pointing out that they were broadcasting from an empty conference room on the 7th floor of their building and not from E3. Brave move Nintendo.

They then go straight into the first game preview. Pokemon X and Y, new area, new games, new pokemon type. Fairy type pokemon are now available. Strong against dragon type pokemon. As well as a brand new mode! Think Tomgatchi with pokemon. Pokemon Amie allows you to interact and play with your Pokemon. Coming to you October 12th 2013.

They followed this with a New Mario 3d World for the Wii U. Up to four players can pick characters Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Toad with differing abilities exactly like Mario Bros 2. It also has a new pick up item turning the characters into cats. Available in December.

Mario Kart
Back in its 8th installment Mario kart is here again. As always new tracks and new abilities. Including tracks that go upside down and cars that follow. 360 degrees of racing fun. Also coming back is motorcycles, under water racing and gliding. Online play has been revamped as well. Coming spring 2014.

Wii Party U
Next up is Wii party u. New mini games and introducing mini games for the game pad. However both this and Wii Fit U are delayed. Both coming out in the 4th quarter of this year.
Art Academy is in development and they don’t have many details on this.

Third Party game montage is next not many details just clips of games coming such as:

AC 4

Some of these look really cool but then some are not. Not sure really what Nintendo was going for this year but seems as if they came up short. What do you guys think? Let me know in the comments below.
