It started with puppets, followed by our favourite Nintendo executives slowing morphing into Star Fox characters. This, my friends, is what nightmares are made out of.
Now now, I know, it’s scary. Here, try and console yourself with a brief overview of everything Nintendo showed.
- Star Fox Zero announced (again), showing gameplay inspired by the cancelled Star Fox 2 game. Releasing late 2015.
- Nintendo is collaborating with Activision on the new instalment in the Skylanders series. Two special Skylanders will be released, being Donkey Kong and Bowser themed ones which, get this, can also be used as Amiibo. This is the future.
- The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes has been announced for the 3DS, features 3 player co-operative gameplay, as well as dressing Link to give him unique abilities. Seriously.
- Hyrule Warriors being released on 3DS.
- Metroid Prime Federation Force announced. Don’t be excited. We’re not.
- Fire Emblem Fates gameplay further proves that it looks absolutely beautiful.
- Xenoblade X given a release date for early December.
- Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem shown again, just to show us that it hasn’t been forgotten.
- Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer shown yet again, looks just as good as you would expect.
- Yoshi’s Woolly World was shown off in all it’s gloriously woven wonder.
- Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam announced for the 3DS. Mixes the RPG values of Mario & Luigi games with some aspects of the Paper Mario aesthetic.
- Super Mario Marker was shown off, now featuring compatible amiibo’s that transform you into that character. Lots of smiles, lots of awesome creations, lots of thumbs up. Released this September.
And that’s that! Short on new announcements, you can tell that they’re winding down the Wii U in preparation for the NX console announcement next year. Let us know how you think they’ve done below!
