At the Nintendo booth at E3, in addition to all the playable demos, they had a Wii U on display showing some trailers and the controller/console setup. Here is a quick look.
The Wii has had a good run. It is one of the best selling home video game consoles of all time. So, how you do you follow it? In Nintendo’s words, with the Wii U. Rumors had speculated for the last several months about what this “Project Cafe” would look like. Specifically, many wondered about [...]
As a fan of the original Centipede for arcade and Atari consoles, I was excited to hear they were bringing Centipede Infestation to both Nintendo 3DS and Wii. I got some hands-on time with the 3DS version, and I have to admit I was not impressed. To start with, it is not like the original [...]
Natsume is bringing Reel Fishing Paradise 3D to the Nintendo 3DS, and I got some hands-on with it. All in all, it looked nice, but the concept is very simple. Just cast and reel in, hopefully catching a fish. You can use the A button to cast, snag with a quick jerk on the system, [...]
In the Wii U demo called Catch Mii, one player utilizes the new controller to go hide as Mario. Meanwhile, the other players, as Miis, stand by with Wii Remotes turned sideways (NES-style). When the timer is up, the group must work together to find Mario. Meanwhile, that player is using their personal screen to [...]
The New Super Mario Bros. games for Nintendo DS and Wii have been received very well. However, one thing you may have wanted to do is bring your Mii into the action. The New Super Mario Bros. Mii demo for Wii U did just that. It looked and played just like the other two games, [...]
The next Nintendo home console, called Wii U, will feature full high definition graphics. One tech demo that I got some hands-on with really showed off that graphical power. What they are calling the Japanese Garden looked amazing. The television screen displayed a beautiful fly-through of the garden. All the while, you can look around [...]
Many have been speculating about a follow-up to the original Luigi’s Mansion for Nintendo GameCube. Even though, it was still a surprise to hear the Luigi’s Mansion 2 will hit the Nintendo 3DS. I got some hands-on time with the game after Nintendo’s E3 press event, just outside the Nokia Theater on June 7, 2011, and [...]
In all honesty, I was a bit upset when Nintendo announced they would not start off Star Fox’s 3DS journey with a new game but a remake of Star Fox 64. However, after my hands-on with the game outside the Nokia Theater on June 7, 2011, just after the Nintendo E3 press event, my mind has [...]
We all knew that Mario would eventually hit the Nintendo 3DS, but we did not know exactly how it would first happen. At last year’s E3, we were teased with a logo, which featured a tail. Well, the tail is back in the form of the Tanooki suit from Super Mario Bros. 3 (NES). In [...]
It seems that the Mario Kart team took all the best features of past games and added a few more for the upcoming Nintendo 3DS version. I got some hands-on time with the game after Nintendo’s E3 press event, just outside the Nokia Theater on June 7, 2011. Mario Kart played very well through the [...]
This awesome new trailer for Kirby Wii (working title) shows new abilities for Kirby to unleash. This is the true follow up to the N64 Kirby: Crystal Shards. There seems to be a variety of great new levels for the player to go through. To top it off, the game will also feature 4-player co-op, [...]
This new version of Animal Crossing includes brand new features such as being able to swim, the ability to choose where items go on the wall of the player’s house and improved graphics. Personally, I do not like the look of the character. It was better when they were short and small. Too tall.
Another installment in the Mario Party franchise. Mario Party 9 features new mini games and boards to run through with the popular Nintendo characters. Enjoy.
