Click "read more" to find out what I think about the rest of the conference, as well as watch a trailer of what The Legend of Zelda might look like in HD
Nintendo also announced strong support for the 3DS, showing Super Mario 3DS, Mario Kart 3DS, Starfox 64 3D, Kid Icarus: Uprising, and my biggest surprise, Luigi's Mansion 2. I loved the first Luigi's Mansion on Gamecube, so the sequel will surely be a must buy for me. Kid Icarus: Uprising features AR card support, and a new;y announced multiplayer mode, and Mario Kart features new elements like underwater racing and hang gliding. Super Mario 3DS, made by the galaxy team, also looked astounding and featured an old fan favorite in the trailer, the tanooki suit.
The Wii was no slouch either. Nintendo showed an amazing trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, as well as announced a new 4 player co-op Kirby, Rhythm Heaven and Mario Party 9. Unfortunately, The Last Story and Xenoblade were nowhere to be seen, which makes me sad. Pikmin 3 was confirmed to have development shifted to the Wii U, a bittersweet announcement. I want to play it as soon as possible, but I know it will be even better on the new system.
Overall, I thought Nintendo had one of the best e3 conferences they could possibly have. They literally had something for everyone. The Wii U looks amazing, the 3DS will finally have good support, and the Wii will bow out gracefully.
