After playing through both the XBox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Sonic Generations at SEGA’s “Sonic Boom” event, I was ready to finally get my hands on the Nintendo 3DS version. On the final day of E3 2011, I made my way to the SEGA booth to try it out. I was able to […]
In another Wii U tech demo from E3 2011, players are told to use the stylus to draw different lengths of lines, shapes, and angles. You can compete against yourself or a second player. This was a really interesting use of the new controller, but it did a great job of showing off the sensitivity […]
Another Wii U tech demo available at E3 2011 was “Shield Pose.” In this rhythm based game, you must block shots from enemy pirate ships in front of you, to your left, and to your right. You must time it correctly and also be in the right spot. As soon as I got my hands […]
One of the Wii U tech demos at E3 2011 was called, “Battle Mii.” In it, two Mii players dressed in Samus costumes use the Wii Remote and Nunchuk to shoot down the third player. That player uses the new controller and screen to fly around the level in an attempt to shoot the opposing […]

While it might not be entirely close, here is a bit of street soccer gameplay from FIFA 12 for Nintendo 3DS from the E3 2011 floor. I apologize for the far-off view, as it was difficult to get a good shot. You may want to watch full screen in HD in order to see better.
I was able to spend some time talking with a Nintendo representative about the upcoming Kirby game for Nintendo DS called, “Kirby Mass Attack.” It is an entirely touch-based game, and it will be out this September.

Here is some gameplay from an E3 2011 demo of “Captain America: Super Soldier” for Wii. They also had the PS3 and 360 versions running on the sides, so you will also see a bit of comparison shots.

In the Wii U tech demo from E3 2011, Shield Pose, players use rhythm and direction to block incoming arrows.
The Wii U tech demos at E3 2011 included one called Battle Mii, where one player will fly around in a ship (using the new controller) while the others search and shoot the ship down (using Wii Remotes).
Kirby is making a return on the Wii. And this time, he will not be made of yarn. In addition, you can partner in 4-player drop-in/drop-out cooperative gameplay.
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.
