GH02: Nintendo Switch Presentation

Nintendo at E3 2015 – Summing Up Part 1

This console generation has been commanded by Sony and Microsoft. Even with Nintendo’s year head start, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One came out of the gate quickly and successfully. With that said, as Nintendo’s first party classic franchises have caught up with the Wii U, Nintendo has begun to see profits again. And let’s not forget the incredibly successful portable platforms, whichever version you happen to hold. Tuesday marked Nintendo’s big day at E3 announcing everything from release dates of anticipated titles to first peeks at things we weren’t expecting. I’m going to sum up my top 12 key takeaways from Nintendo’s 2015 E3 digital presentation. Here are my first four, below. Stay tuned for part 2 for the next four!

 

 

ArwingFighterStar Fox Zero (WII U)

It’s time to practice your barrel rolls and prep all-range mode because our classic heroes from the Super Nintendo and N64 are back in a brand new adventure, Star Fox Zero. This new Wii U title is no remake, nor is it a direct sequel to any previous incarnations of the franchise… No, not the GameCube one either. This game has been teased for months with talk about how the Wii U’s GamePad would play into the second screen atmosphere. Well, thanks to E3, now we know. While your main TV screen will show the a more cinematic view of the action, the GamePad will display a cockpit view for better aim and accuracy. While the graphics are more polished and vivid than previous Star Fox titles, don’t expect Halo 5 style graphics. Instead, Nintendo keeps the soul of Star Fox alive by showing us worlds and ships we can recognize, even if just by the style. New gameplay includes additional vehicle modes including the Walker and Gyrowing, plus the return of the Landmaster. The next exciting installment of Star Fox is expected to hit store shelves this holiday season.

 

ZeldaTriForceThe Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes (3DS)

The next game on the list is a little odd but comes from one of the most beloved Nintendo franchises, Zelda. Tri Force Heroes is a 1 OR 3 player game designed in the A Link Between Worlds style. The objective is to “link” up (get it?) with two other Link characters in an effort to work together to solve puzzles and complete levels. These Links are even stackable, meaning all three could be in a tower. When this happens, the bottom-most character controls movement while the top one can use items and weapons. If you happen to be the middle Link, you’re along for the ride. In “one-player” mode, you can “rent” two paper dolls to take along with you in place of your friends’ characters. Players can communicate via in-game emoticons and can connect to a game using local wireless connection, online play, and download play. This title is expected to launch this fall.

 

HyruleWarriosLegendsHyrule Warriors Legends (3DS)

Nintendo calls this game a “re-imagining” of the current Wii U version. The upcoming 3DS version includes all of the DLC characters along with additional features based on The Wind Waker and more. You can also change characters on the fly. If you enjoyed the Wii U game and want more, this would be a great title to pick up. If you haven’t played the original yet, then maybe this updated and portable version is the one for you. Hyrule Warriors Legends is expected in the first quarter of 2016.

 

SuperMarioMakerSuper Mario Maker (Wii U)

Originally titled Mario Maker, this game will let you finally become the level designing master, opening up an incredible toolbox of enemies, boxes, power-ups, platforms, and more. The game will come with some preset levels and will allow you to go online and check out levels designed by others. The game will include four different style themes from Super Mario Bros, Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World, and New Super Mario Bros. U. The new Mystery Mushroom power-up will work in conjunction with Amiibo to transform Mario into dozens of different characters throughout Nintendo lore. In honor of the 30th Anniversary, they are also releasing an over-sized 8-Bit Super Mario Bros. Amiibo, which I am very excited for. Purchasing a physical copy of the game also gets you a special course booklet with ideas for courses, in case you need some inspiration. Super Mario Maker comes out September 11th, 2015.

What do you think of these four titles? Anything you’re most looking forward to? Are you disappointed in anything? Comment below!

Next up, part 2 of my four part Nintendo E3 summary. I’ll talk about Yoshi’s Woolly World, Xenoblade Chronicles X, and more!
