What Nintendo has announced so far at E3 2014 – Get Hyped for Wii U?

If you didn’t get a chance to pay attention to everything Nintendo threw at you yesterday throughout the course of the day, don’t worry! We got you covered!

Let’s run through the list from Nintendo so far guys. What you will see here is a video of the game and then a quick snippet from me about the announcement. If you are just looking for the videos, then you’ve come to the right place!

New Super Smash Bros characters

We were introduced to the Mii Fighters, Palutina from Kid Icarus and PAC-MAN!!!! Also Smash Bros will be the first game to be Amiibo compatible.


New Toy figurines similar to Skylanders and Disney Infinity, but with Nintendo characters for multiple Nintendo games. They will make their debut with Super Smash Bros for Wii U first and then come out to support other games as well. Apparently, they are also working to include the toys in Mario Kart 8.

Mario Party 10  for the Wii U

Five Players can now party, with one player taking on the role of Bowser acting as a GM, while four players traverse the board and play mini-games.

Yoshi’s Woolly World

Basically Kirby’s Epic Yarn, but a Yoshi game. YAAAAYYY…

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker

OK, this game looks surprisingly good. Toad gets his own game in what looks like an action-adventure game mixed with a puzzle platformer. It actually looks pretty decent despite Toad being the main character.

Open World Legend of Zelda

Although its not coming to 2015, this game looks pretty sick. Take Link and throw him into an open world, similar to a Skyrim setting. It also looks ridiculously good.

Hyrule Warriors update

Get ready to play as multiple characters from the Zelda universe! Link, Zelda, Impa and Midna are confirmed, with a tease of Ganondorf toward the end of the trailer. Will he be playable? Why wouldn’t he be playable?

This game is coming September 26th, 2014, which is ridiculously soon!

Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire

We got a glimpse of the new Mega Evolutions for the Hoenn starters and the Ancient Devolutions for Kyogre and Groudon. Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre look pretty awesome.

Bayonetta 2

Yes, its coming out this year. Its also coming with Bayonetta 1 packaged in and you’ll get to dress up with Nintendo themed clothes and power-ups. I might pick this up if I ever get a Wii U.

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse

Another Kirby game is slated for the Wii U, bringing us stylus control of Kirby using rainbow powers. Expect new and interesting transformations for Kirby as well!

Xenoblade Chronicles X

Still have to wait for 2015 for this one, but a pretty cool cinematic trailer was shown for it. Can they just bring Grahf back already?? Oh well, it still looks awesome!

Mario Maker

How many times have you seen a custom Mario game? Well, now Nintendo is giving you the opportunity to make your own levels for Mario officially! It looks like you can edit in either classic Mario or New Super Mario Bros style. Either way, it looks fun!


A new IP from Nintendo! This game delivers 4 v 4 combat of teams of squid-man-things with guns going at it. The goal here is to increase your territory, by painting it with Ink. Here’s hoping for a fun Super Mario Sunshine mini-game to be included somewhere in this!

Fantasy Life for 3DS

This game was announced after the Nintendo Digital Event, so I don’t have too much details on it. All I know is that it will be out before the end of the year.

Professor Layton/Phoenix Wright

This game was also announced after the Nintendo Digital Event, but who cares?? I don’t need to tell you anything about it, because its Phoenix Wright and Professor Layton in one freaking game. Its coming out later this year.

Star Fox for Wii U

No public announcement trailer has been shown at E3 about this game yet, but journalists are going crazy about it and Shigeru Miyamoto mentioned it in the Nintendo Treehouse event. Apparently, Shigeru Miyamoto already has shown gameplay to a group of journalists this week. In any case, Star Fox is back

Project Guard and Project Giant Robo

Two new projects that Shigeru Miyamoto is working on that he has shown gameplay for at the Nintendo Treehouse event. Basically, Giant Robo is like sumo wrestling with customizable giant robots and Project Guard is a tower defence game with you monitoring 12 security cameras with lasers that are guarding a building from robots. Both look pretty fun!

That about sums it up so far from Nintendo, but I’m sure there will be more announcements still to come this week. What game from Nintendo has got you excited the most so far?
