Electronic Entertainment Expo 2013 Conference Summary
  • Nintendo's presentation kicks off with Pokemon X and Y for the 3DS, due for release on October 12 this year. Featuring the new Fairy-type Pokemon which is effective against Dragon types, the game will also have a "Pokemon-amie" feature where you can feed, pet and play with your Pokemon to strengthen bonds.?trailer??website?
  • Super Mario 3D World is unveiled, due out this December. The game will have up to four players control Mario, Luigi, Peach and Toad (nice throwback to Super Mario Bros. 2) and feature new powerups such as the cat suit, allowing characters to scale walls and slash enemies with their claws.?trailer?
  • Heading for the WiiU soon is Mariokart 8, the latest in the hugely popular franchise. Set for release in Spring 2014, we'll be seeing features such as motorbikes and underwater races returning as well as new features such as anti-gravitational courses where you can drift your cart along vertical tracks or even upside-down.?trailer??website?
  • Mario Party for WiiU was shown featuring the usual assortment of mini-games that make full use of the console's control setup, even including two-player games that can be played with just a single tablet. The previous release date of Summer 2013 has been bumped up to a currently undisclosed time this year as the developers would like to  make the game as enjoyable as possible.
  • Following on from one delay, we get another - Wii Fit U will need additional time to develop and will be released in Spring 2013.
  • A new installment of Art Academy is currently in the works, which sets to give users more complete drawings tools (such as different types of pencils, pastels, etc). Additional details to come later.

As soon as I saw zelda and smash bros, I ran to walmart and got me a basic wii U :>
It's actually pretty nifty and I love how I can watch netflix on the remote tablet thingie. It's really cool how I can control my tv and everything with it. I was playing Zombie U and graphics are pretty good. I'm actually glad I got it before the big guns come out (PS4/XBone.)
