Nintendo made some pretty large announcements yesterday, showing off certain games and promising more to come with playable version during this years E3.
Here's the full Nintendo Direct, if you don't want to sit through the entire thing, I go through the interesting points below.
Let's start with Mario and Mario Kart. Nintendo said that up intil now there has been a release of both game for their recent consoles and handhelds since the GBA days and they promise to keep up that trend with the Wii U. The same team behind Galaxy are going to be behind the new Mario (not sure if that's a good thing as I like Sunshine better). No video or images provided.
Also promised a Super Smash Brothers game, though this would be co-created with Namco-Bandai and would possibly be influenced by the Tekken franchise. 3DS would be integral to this game, which reminds me of the old Gamecube Gameboy Advance hookups...
Next, Yoshi's reentry into the gaming space. I found a video of someone dissecting the entire video of Yoshi's game.
Yarn Yoshi takes elements of yoshi's island (super mario world 2 which was a FANTASTIC game), Yoshi's story (N64 game, somewhat childish but still fun) and Kirby's Epic Yarn.
Big announcement about Monolith Soft. the game is not called Xenoblade 2 but rather Monolith's current project. At any rate, a Xenoblade 2 would be a welcome addition as Xenoblade 1 is absolutely fantastic. Loving every minute of it.
Here's a rundown of the trailer by the same people.
Iwata also mentioned a new Zelda and takingthe series back to the basics. Meaning in recent Zeldas the games have been somewhat linear, forcing the player to go to one castle after another. The original Zelda wasn't like this at all. If you could get into the castle, you could try and finish it. It's a long development time though, so in the mean time Aonuma is going to re-release Wind Waker with HD graphics and some new quests. The game looks phenomenal.
Here's the introduction of both Zelda news.
And now some stills.
Finally, I wanted to show something. It shows the dedication of Nintendo to release top quality products. There's an Wii emulator for Pc that will upscale wii and gamecube games to 1080p. Why would you want to do that? Well, the emulator, Dolphin as it's called, not only up-scales, but can change textures and even add anti-aliasing. Now I bring this up after Zelda because there was some noise about how Skyward Sword looks on this emulator. The following three videos show off what the original game looked like and what the up-scaled versions look like. We'll go by release date, so Wind Waker first.
Make sure you go to at least 720p to get the full effect.
Now Twilight Princess.
And finally, Skyward Sword.
So, with all this, Nintendo clearly could of just up-scaled and re-released, but they decided to retexture and update the lighting and add more quests. Well done Nintendo, well done.
