Nintendo had a very well-rounded presentation today, with very few major reveals and mostly just new teases. The new Zelda Wii U game was briefly talked about and teased, as was Mario Maker, and a few others.
The biggest developments were probably the new Smash Bros.additions as well as expanded NFC toy support. Here’s everything that happened at Nintendo’s E3 conference.
- Miis and NFC toys confirmed for Super Smash Bros, out in October
- Nintendo reveals Skylanders-like NFC toy: Amiibo
- Yoshi’s Woolly World looks AMAZING
- Nintendo talks Zelda Wii U, influenced by retro Zelda
- Captain Toad getting a full-on game, coming holiday 2014
- Bayonetta 2 releasing in October with first game included
- Nintendo announces Kirby: The Rainbow Curse for Wii U
- Midna and Zelda are playable in Hyrule Warriors
- Xenoblade Chronicles X coming to Wii U in 2015
- Create your own custom levels in Mario Maker
- Pokemon Alpha Sapphire, Omega Ruby coming to 3DS on November 21
- Nintendo announces Splatoon, a 4v4 action game
- Nintendo teases new game reveal later today, likely Starfox
- Lady Palutena confirmed for Super Smash Bros.
Out of everything Nintendo announced, I’m mostly excited for the Smash Bros. news. Lady Palutena looks like a ton of fun to play, and the Mii features are a lot more detailed than I would have expected. Now, we just have to wait. As a huge Bayonettafan, finally getting a real date confirmation made me happy as well.
