Today’s Nintendo Direct has been one of surprise, happiness and excitement. The announcements made in today’s video were great and finally addressed some of the stuff gamers have been asking for from Nintendo for quite some time. Firstly the system updates for the Wii U is a good start and then there’s the Virtual Console for Wii U too. This was good signs for the future, Nintendo were not only addressing their problems but implementing all of te good stuff we’ve come to enjoy from them in the past.
But then there’s all of those new games on the horizon! Two Zelda games? A new 3D Mario game and new Mario Kart? Visual confirmation of Super Smash Bros. 4? All of these titles visible at e3 this year? Oh god I was grinning so much when I heard these announcements. I can’t wait for 2013 to roll on for Nintendo, it looks like it’ll be an interesting year.

Nintendo President Satoru Iwata unleashed Wii U news in an installment of Nintendo Direct today as he outlined Nintendo’s future plans for the console. Iwata revealed how the Wii U launch lineup will be bolstered by a long list of top game franchises headed for the new console. These are games that longtime players and newcomers alike will love to play, and everyone will be experiencing them in new ways, thanks to the integrated second-screen experiences enabled by the Wii U GamePad controller. Iwata also detailed a number of enhancements designed to make the Wii U game experience more social, even if people are not playing in the same room.
“The fun of video games is not only just playing games, but also sharing experiences together with people – even though they live far away, their skill levels are different or their experience does not happen at the same time,” Iwata said. “We want Wii U to be the system that brings everyone together.”
