Nintendo’s media event wasn’t as big as the other game makers, but they still unveiled loads of cool stuff. Here’s the best:
The next Legend of Zelda game doesn’t have a title yet, but we know it will be the first truly open-world game in the series, where all the environments won’t be broken up into different areas. Players will also have more freedom over how and when they tackle different objectives, with a less linear storyline. The new Zelda game, whatever it’s called, will drop next year.
The Zelda spin-off Hyrule Warriors will be available this September.
Nintendo’s new line of toys that unlock in-game content is known as amiibo. They were first teased last month, and use the same kind of technology that powers Skylanders and Disney Infinity. The amiibo toys will work with both of those games, along with a slew of other Wii U titles like Mario Kart 8 and the new Super Smash Bros game. They’ll launch with Smash Bros this holiday season.
Speaking of Super Smash Bros, if you’ve ever wanted to punch Mario in the face, you’re in luck. The new game will allow you to use your Mii character as a fighter on the Wii U, so you can take on all your favorite Nintendo icons. If you can’t wait for the Wii U version, the 3DS version will be available on October 3.
For online fans, Splatoon is an inky, 4-on-4 multiplayer game featuring colorful squids. Expect that on the Wii U in 2015.
Yoshi’s Wooly World is the name of the new Yoshi game from the makers of Kirby’s Epic Yarn. It will arrive next year.
The loveable mushroom Toad is getting his own game, called Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker. It will be available on the Wii U before the end of the year.
Meanwhile, Kirby has a new game called Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, coming in 2015.
Bayonetta 2 is being Bundled with Bayonetta 1 on the Wii U. They’ll arrive this October.
Here’s a new trailer for Xenoblade Chronicles X. The game arrives next year.
Who needs Nintendo to make games? You can make your own games with Mario Maker, a LittleBigPlanet-style experience set in the Mushroom Kingdom.
I was Disappointing in Nintendo showing this year.
I mean All the games we really want come out 2015 (When 2015, Who knows) and the only games that i can really get excited for (smash brothers) comes out near holiday – Obviously to push sales of the console, But my problem is for the ones who already have a wii u. Were waiting almost a Whole year for anything fun to come out.
I mean Yay dynasty warriors (hyrule edition) couldn’t care less, dynasty warriors never did well in North America And i am pretty sure hiding in a zelda skin is like polishing a turd.
But overall Nintendo almost made it seem like “Well if you bought a Nintendo console, Your only going to be playing Nintendo first party games. And your going to be waiting.” So now i have a Nintendo branded Paperweight
Ill Get of my soap box, But Nintendo needs to decide this year whether or not there the Child’s play toy they have been – Or a company that wants to push the artistic media that is games, games that have emotional experiences, Like the last of us – and the soon to come out Valiant Hearts.
The other consoles aren’t getting much of anything either til 2015, at least MK8 is out and Bayonetta 2 (bundled with 1st game) Smash Bros are coming out this year along with a few others, they’re releasing more info/games throughout E3 too.
Exactly, I don’t know what this guy’s beef with Nintendo specifically is.
Big games coming out in 2015 in general:
Sony: Uncharted 4, Bloodborne, The Order
Microsoft: Halo 5
Konami: Metal Gear Solid V
Warner Brothers: Batman Arkham Knight, The Witcher 3
Nintendo: Zelda Wii U
So, overall, let’s all be psyched for the amazing year that awaits and stop complaining!
Oh really, and what “artistic” “emotional” games did the other developers churn out this year at e3? Destiny? Batman? Uncharted 4? Bloodborne? Halo 5? If you’re going to tell me those games are like the experiences you just described, I will laugh very hard. No, what they all are is very good and fun games that people love to play for FUN and ENTERTAINMENT, which is exactly what Nintendo does at their best as well.
Honestly, the most “artistic” game that debuted at E3 this year, and the one that I am most psyched for, is probably No Man’s Sky. THAT game is the one everyone should keep track of. It sounds exactly like what games have always tried to accomplish, but haven’t been able to do until the advent of the new technology of today.
Remember, the “art” of games comes directly from the experiences they provide for the player, and how the player interacts with it. Unlike say, a great film or piece of music or novel, games are a unique art form that derives its aesthetics from its gameplay design, flow, and interactivity. Its not the story or voice acting or writing in The last of Us that makes it an “artistic” game. It’s the way the player interacts and controls the characters, goes through what they go through, and develops an emotional connection with their avatars on the screen in the process. One could argue Nintendo has had plenty of moments similar to this in their own unique way.
That is the precise appeal of the Zelda series itself… A young boy (or girl) getting to play out their make believe adventures exploring caves and castles, carrying only a lantern and a sword, capturing the very feelings of the young boy who is known today as Shigeru Miyamoto. When I was a kid, I always liked to pretend I was fighting a giant dragon or knight or skeleton, rescuing a princess, saving a kingdom, and just going a heroic adventure. Most kids I have known even today still have those kinds of
(Continued from my above post, as they wouldn’t let me continue it in the last post)
…Imaginative play worlds. It is simply wonderful that, when I was a kid, I could play a game featuring a young boy like myself going on such an adventure, featuring the exact things I always expected and more! That’s why this new Zelda looks so amazing… It is Zelda as it always should have been, has often come very close to on a few occasions but with new technology can exact and create the very completely explorable no walls in sight fantasy world of that young child in all of us. That is as artistic a statement, as an experience as you will find in gaming derived from the gameplay itself, my friend.
The point i was trying to make is there is nothing that nintendo is offering that Appeals to an older audience, There No innovating when you make 3 mario games a year, And your point “Destiny? Batman? Uncharted 4? Bloodborne? Halo 5?” No none of those are what i am describing And THOSE ARE ON Other consoles at that. You basically wasted two post to explain and talk about What Other company’s are bringing to other Devices – This was about nintendo bringing Nothing to the table for people – Who lets just say Bought ONLY A wii u – Not everyone has enough money to blow on multiple consoles. Who are looking for more Engrossing Story’s more Richer Characters. So if you Think for even a second that Artistic game, just comes from the games general Graphical Look or “Oooo how purty it is”
And a zelda Game we will not see this year
and a star fox game witch is hidden under raps do not count as something to be excited for because i have not seen any actual gameplay
And you missed a Serious key word i used was “emotional experiences” You can tell me all day that This looks good or this looks like a painting or this plays well, but thats not the art or artistic expression Im talking about.
” I love Nintendo there just no longer marketing themselves as a competitor anymore but as a child’s play toy you can have fun with your family, But After they grow up you should really buy them a big boy console.”
Such a bad argument, how come adults who review Nintendo games including those on this show praise them? Because they’re fun and that’s the point of gaming, i have a gaming PC and bought a Wii-U because it has a healthy amount of exclusives like W101, Pikmin 3, DKC: Tropical Freeze, 3D World, WWHD, MK8 and soon Bayonetta 1 & 2, Smash Bros ect. Just because games don’t contain violence or deep stories doesn’t mean adults can’t enjoy them, we’re not talking about Leap frog games.
And Everyone entitled to there own opinion, I am not going to buy a game Just because someone on a review show told me it was good and fun. Everyone has there own taste in games, And “cute Fun Games” are no where near my pallet. I didn’t mean To “insult you” since you apprently took it that way. But my post still stands “they are not what me and my wife look for when we play games anymore. We have matured and so have our taste.”
My taste no longer involved Cute looking games that are refreshed and put out faster and faster – You have yours and i have mine… I dont see the need to post telling me how i am wrong ?
And im sorry none of the games you listed besides smash brothers i am interested in, Or i was but got for free from a promotion anyways. And a game dosent need to have violence or Deep stories to be ANYWHERE close to what im speaking of.
Yeah it seems like look at all this great stuff! But now you have to wait another year for it.
