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.
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:
scribble nauts unmasked dc comics adventure
splinter cell blacklist
sonic lost world
Followed by a montage of eshop games:
coaster craszy deluze
oddworld new n tasty
spin the bottle bumpies party
a world of kefflings
D&D Chronicles of Mystera
After the montages they go into new big releases coming later this year or early next year. Such as:
Windwaker hd release
wonderful 101 debut
Donkey kong: Tropical Freeze
smash brothers wii u/3ds
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.
Stay tuned for later today as I tell you who I think “won” e3 and why!
