E3: Nintendo press conference

I’ll focus on the games shown on stage but ignoring the announcement wheel of 3rd parties. My comments are short and simple. I don’t want to open room for rumours or speculations neither do I want to comment on our business practices. The show was nice and steady with a touching opening for Zelda’s 25th Anniversary. Which was just the beginning for the games to come.

  • The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time: A masterpiece remastered. New challenges and modes included this will be truly a new masterpiece for Zelda fans.
  • The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords: It’s free – what else could we wish for. Multiplayer mayhem ahead.
  • The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword: The latest installment will arrive this holiday season bringing a new adventure. I’m sure it will be a blast.
  • Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony: Amazing. I am looking forward too see where the concerts take place and also for the CD releases.
  • Mario Kart 3DS: To ground, air and sea. A new instalment of the fun racer. One of the most beloved franchises. Nothing can go wrong here.
  • Starfox 64 3D: I like Starfox but it looks mainly like a port. But multiplayer gaming is a good strike here. That makes it worth it.
  • Super Mario 3DS: Cheerful like always. The famous Racoon is back too. Will be a good driver for hardware.
  • Kid Icarus Uprising: Awesome visuals, fast action, lots of stuff happening on screen at times. Multiplayer is again a big plus here. I like that. The augmented reality card game looks interesting too.
  • Luigi’s Mansion 2: Funny, like the kind of humour. Hunting ghosts never looked that funny. The good music that brings the game to life is very noteable here, good job.
  • 3D classic: Excitebike: A nice free gift.
  • Pokedex 3D: Very funny tool. Also free. A nice collectible game for fans.
  • Wii U: A simple yet strong name utilising the already known brand. Featuring among other things: HD 1080, video calls, new ways to play and view games, backwards compatible, up to five players (depening on games like “Chase Mii”), already existing Wii Balance Board and Wii Remotes are compatible. Finally some adult oriented titles are coming too. The prototype games look very funny and give a good glimpse of what kind of new games we can expect.
  • LEGO City Stories: LEGO is indeed a strong brand, especially on the Nintendo platforms. An open world game always sounds great. I hope you have indeed the freedom of playing and creating with LEGO what your imagination comes up with.

Some of the games announced for “Wii U”:

  • Darksiders II
  • Dirt
  • Aliens Colonial Marines
  • Metro Last Light
  • Tekken
  • Batman Arkham City
  • Assassins Creed
  • Ghost Recon Online
  • Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge
