Nintendo had two things going for it going into E3 and the first was the Wii's successor and the second the 25th Anniversary of Zelda. Straight of the bat Nintendo jumped into the former.
Nintendo then teases the upcoming announcement of a new console and notes that the Wii was mostly a console for casual players and hopes to fix that. There new console is the perform to both the casual (Wii market) and hardcore. The console is 'to serve to every player' and will be coming next year.
Mario Kart 3DS is 'a triked out version you haven't seen before' that now has hang gliding and driving underwater. Kart customization is also included beyond the ability to draw a symbol on your Kart like on the DS version. The game general looks good and all the new features look to add a much needed amp to the series.
Starfox gets a release date for September and a feature where the game takes picture of you when you lose online or something like that, it wasn't explained well. But it did sound like what Burnout Paradise did on PS3 if you had your camera on.
Super Mario 3D looks to combine many different Mario elements in one game and is 'coming before the year is over!'
Luigi's Mansion 2 looks like Ghostbusters: Sanctum of slime but better with Luigi sucking up ghosts in a vacuum. The game looks to have allot of potential but the trailer shown wasn't much at all.
Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games 2012 was announced and I pulled a sad face but then I remember The Doctor shows up at the 2012 Olympics so confirm the BBC to be involved in that game.
A free Pokedex is coming to the 3DS that lets you build up your Pokedex with swap pass and other things. But it also uses AR images that lets you take pictures with your Pokemon anywhere which is a cool little application.
Unfortunately the new console appears to still have allot of waggling games being pushed for it so it should go up well against the Kinect.
Nintendo then shows a video with heaps of game developers and heaps hyping up the Wii U. Allot of games are announced to be coming to the console in this video like Darksiders 2, Tekken, Batman Arkham city, Assassins Creed, Dirt, Alien Colene Marines (which looks better than AVP) and Ninja Gaiden 3 is announced in the midst of all this.
Nintendo then says that the 3DS, DSI, WII and WII U are all one family, which means they don't plane to stop making games for the former consoles anytime soon.
Nintendo's conference was interesting but they seemed to lose out on the hype that they could have got if they had taken the Wii U stuff in another direction, but what'd you think?
