Summary of E3 Day 2: Nintendo say WHAAAAAaaa?!

Day 2 of the E3 brought some surprises from Nintendo; a game company many counted out ever since the Wii U was released. Here is what the day brought us:


The major game that everyone is talking about is Super Smash Bros. Wii U. The game, coming out for the Wii U during the holiday season wit the 3DS version in October, will have many features including using your own Mii fighter and the use of NFC figures - called Amiibo's - to swap in new characters, similar to Skylanders.The Amiibo figures will also be used for the recently released Mario Kart 8, though it is unclear how for now.

Open world Legend of Zelda game coming in 2015, you say? I only have one response for this... 

Speaking of Legend of Zelda, the much talked about Hyrule Warriors has the official release date of September 26th. You will be able to play as any one of 4 characters against a enemy horde.

Another much talked about game that came out of left field was game designer Shigeru Miyamoto's newest projects: A new Star Fox game, Project: Guard and Project Robot. Not much was shown of the three titles, but all of them will appear in 2015 as well.

Other titles shown for the Nintendo consoles include Mario Party 10, Kirby: Rainbow Curse, Mario Maker (which allow you to make your own classic Super Mario Bros. levels), Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Yoshi's Woolly World and the next Pokémon iterations, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, were given a November release date.


Bayonetta 2 - which will include Bayonetta 1 and exclusive content for the Wii U - will be heading to all consoles

Sega is apparently working on a Sonic the Hedgehog movie. Yeah, moving on...


Only thing worth noting was Monster Hunter 4 for the Wii U. Next!

Tune into tomorrow as we scour the interwebz for more news from E3!
