Nintendo's E3 2012 Conference Finished

Update: The conference is over! It's fair to say that got a mixed reception, from the early highs of Pikmin 3 to barely a smattering of applause after Nintendo Land was revealed. Here's a rundown of the announcements:

- Pikmin 3 revealed by Nintendo
- Wii U to support two GamePads
- New Super Mario Bros. U announced for Wii U
- Nintendo: Wii U supports 1080p, CPU and GPU revealed
- New Wario game heading to Wii U
- P-100 from Platinum Games coming to Wii U
- Scribblenauts Unlimited announced for Wii U
- Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition announced for Wii U
- Mass Effect 3 headed to Wii U
- Wii Fit U announced
- Paper Mario: Sticker Star detailed
- New Super Mario Bros. 2 US release date
- Luigi's Mansion 2 renamed, dated
- Lego City Undercover announced for Wii U
- Nintendo Land announced for Wii U
- Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition trailer (video)
- FreeStyleGames working on Wii U karaoke title

Original story: On Sunday night, Nintendo took the unprecedented step of unveiling its revised Wii U hardware and online Miiverse service in a YouTube video.

In a move we applauded for resetting conference expectations after last year's divisive showing, president Satoru Iwata gave us all the hardware details and told us what to expect from its E3 press conference: nothing but Wii U software.

If the prospect of a Nintendo E3 Conference dedicated exclusively to software for a new home console doesn't get you excited, then you probably need to go home and rethink your life. The rest of us will be able to pile in here and watch the stream and read along with Rob Purchese's live text coverage from 5pm UK time.

    @KingDom, What's that I hear? Ninty, poor performance? Try not to cry. So much for Ninty 'smashing E3' eh?
  • drumbaby 3 years ago

    So let me get this straight, Aliens Colonial Marines is being delayed so Nintendo have a half decent grown up title at launch?

    Grrrrrr
  • inferna_hermit 3 years ago

    Wii U Disappoints U. seriously what was that ? could it be more worst ? anyway last year when fake Wii U was announced i remember they showed some Zelda TechDemo but yesterday i just saw some sick graphics that was not even close to this gen consoles. what just happend ?
  • Dragovian 3 years ago

    What a load of rubbish. No Metroid, Zelda, F-Zero, Star Fox or 3D Mario. Nothing to show off the graphics. No reason to buy the Wii U.
  • rawtheory 3 years ago

    Oh Nintendo, how I loved thee. Now you are a grizzled old burnout I can't relate too. Maybe its time to put down the crystal meth before you develop a bath salt habit and call it quits....
  • TheEarlOfZinger 3 years ago

    Same old shit now in 1080p.
  • LLT_taz 3 years ago

    @wellzy4eva serious they can make more IP's.... like modern core games not from the eighties and nineties
  • LLT_taz 3 years ago

    i Love playing Mario kart, an galaxy 2. but love playing uncharted and MOH more.. so for me I'm giving U a miss
  • Devox 3 years ago

    Wow, those 3 presentations...like having a beauty contest in a leper colony.
  • Squidgywidgywoo 3 years ago

    Nintendo, you have mad me sad. I hope you're happy with yourselves! :'(
  • Sid-Nice 3 years ago

    What an embarrassment ?Where are the games Nintendo?? When Nintendo said ?The Wii U would cater for the core gamer? did they not mean the ?Cock gamer? utter casual trite apart from the odd title that is/are already available on multiplatform.

    Ok I did like Lego City Undercover, Pikmin 3, Rayman Legends and even Zombi U could be fun if it has a ?Shaun of the Dead? themed humour to it.
  • SpaceMonkey77 3 years ago

    Define 'proper' games?

    Don't play coy, you know what I mean when I say that. I don't mean board games, sexy time with your mother, I means solid experiences that aren't gimped by controls, use imagination and frankly are made by Nintendo, if possible.

    See those games Ubisoft displayed? A whole lot of solid games there. It's telling when Ubisoft can produce product that makes Nintendo as a company look like a bloody joke.
  • SpaceMonkey77 3 years ago

    Apologies on my spelling, slight of finger, in the surprise of being right about Nintendo's crap.

    No point in my saying much else, but Nintendo need to check out of doing games consoles.
  • ronorra 3 years ago

    It would be unrealistic to see Nintendo rise back to the days of the SNES but this years effort @ E3 was a disaster imo
  • electrolite 3 years ago

    *proper
  • electrolite 3 years ago

    @SpaceMonkey77

    Define 'peoper games'
  • killyourtv 3 years ago

    One word. Gash.
  • greentango 3 years ago

    disappointing from Nintendo this year, was expecting far more than a bunch more casual games. so much for targeting more towards the hardcore market :(
  • joshcharlesforrest 3 years ago

    That was one of the worst Hardware launches I have ever seen. 'its all about the games'

    Funny that because I must have missed them. No in house AAA Games? No Launch information? No hardware specification? No price?

    Did I mention there were no games? Im not buying a machine to play re-released of games I already own or can buy on another machine.

    Oh wait! They launched a 2d side scrolling Mario! What a load of bull.
  • DAN.E.B 3 years ago

    Right so thats E3 finished for another year
    Now how much for a half decent PC?
  • BigEars 3 years ago

    Bit like your missus promising you a night to remember only to return home from work and find her getting ham shanked by the milkman. Whose also a dwarf. With rabies.
  • Climhazzard 3 years ago

    I'm not so sure I want a Wii U now. I hope to god they have more announcements soon. Just feels like the Wii all over again.
  • Pandy 3 years ago

    Wow! I was sure this was going to be a day 1 purchase, but not so sure now. If this is the launch line up, then (despite wanting to play lots of those games) I think I can wait.
  • Cjail 3 years ago

    No release date, nor price, no word if the hardware is better then 360or PS3.
    I believe Ninty fans wants answers to these questions.

    By the way Reggie gives me the creeps.
  • kirinnokoshin 3 years ago

    Bit disappointing and NintendoLand looks too saccharin sweet to have the kind of mass appeal that Wii Sports has. Despite the raft of Ill feeling here I still get the sense that one extra big exclusive first party title (Metroid, F-Zero etc) would have dried up the tears.
  • megatronx 3 years ago

    absolute disaster
  • SpaceMonkey77 3 years ago

    I think there's too many old gits at Nintendo, just like most japanese companies. Nothing about their online plan, nothing about achievements, showing games we've played and few new ones besides, I'm surprised that no one booed them, instead of all that positive false applause.

    So weary of watching them mess up, and I'm afraid this is another possible Nintendo console I'm going to skip out on. Shame really. Got 360, PS3 and PC to play proper games.
  • LLJaf 3 years ago

    This will still sell loads but today is the day I stopped being a nintendo fan.
  • Durandle 3 years ago

    Things people don't care about at E3: Dance Games, Singing Games and Health Games. People may *like* those games, I'm sure they're popular with some, but its not why people come to E3. People want to see things that really show off the hardware, which we've seen very little of!
  • Kami 3 years ago

    That felt like a massive anti-climax to this years E3 conferences...
  • 32768Colours 3 years ago

    Hang on, that bit where they're carrying the dessert via the game pad while standing on the balance board?

    Couldn't that just be done with a regular wiimote? What a fucking con!
  • lavalant 3 years ago

    Yeh I get it now fuck off.
  • MrTomFTW 3 years ago

    I'm going to run this image into the ground through over-use. Much like Nintendo do with their franchises.

  • inbrodericko 3 years ago

    haha this is such a FARCE!
  • weedar 3 years ago

    I was shocked to learn that the triggers on the WiiU gamepad and gamepad pro are DIGITAL!
  • Ironic_War_Criminal 3 years ago

    That just nosedived after the WB games stuff, huh.
  • 32768Colours 3 years ago

    "Next, I'd like to show you Wii Fit U"

    I'd rather you didn't...
  • jellyBelly 3 years ago

    thank god steam is coming to linux, very dissapointed, lol
  • cukydoh 3 years ago

    Seriously, such a focus on 5-player local MP... Who does that these days? Bit out of touch maybe? =\
  • joeymoto108 3 years ago

    At least Scribblenauts Unlimited looks awesome!
  • lavalant 3 years ago

    Think I'll go hug my Gameboy
  • electrolite 3 years ago

    Good to see Nintendo have learnt all them lessons from the 3DS dreadful launch. They've now added 'lack of games' to 'confused and dubious USP'. Just need to make sure it's overpriced and the hat-trick is repeated!
  • cukydoh 3 years ago

    Also, there's maybe too many mp focused games for local mp-only. Most stuff is online now or sp, I don't generally have 5 people sitting around my console wanting to play a game at the same time. What an odd things to focus on =\
  • 32768Colours 3 years ago

    Happy-smiley videogame families in full force to hide just how vacuous the games are.

    It doesn't work.
  • Rubios 3 years ago

    Sony and Microsoft did an amazing job compared to this.

    And that's saying something, so sad...
  • Weezer 3 years ago

    Asymmetric gaming translation: we can't make it work with more than one touchscreen at a time
  • brazzauk 3 years ago

    Worst E3 I can remember. Nothing but but more of the same games. Liked the look of the new Naughty Dog title and Beyond looked interesting. Apart from that same old shit.
  • cukydoh 3 years ago

    Why didn't a single game announced support two Wii U controllers, despite them making a big deal about it from the start? -_-
  • Chompee 3 years ago

    Sigh. All you had to do Nintendo was announce one or two proper WiiU games and you would've walked over all the other conferences. Obviously too much to ask.
  • makeamazing 3 years ago

    Batman looked graphically a little toned down, and looked a pain to play with the controller.
  • Gaiduku 3 years ago

    Oh fuck now Iwata is talking more about the shite that is nintendoland
  • Gunzberg 3 years ago

    Nintendoland as a closer - WTH ?!

    Ubisoft still had the best conference
  • Rubios 3 years ago

    lol @ Nintendo
  • DJBobHoskins 3 years ago

    worst...episode...ever
  • oxman2k 3 years ago

    one of the worst e3 shows ever pathetic.all three were utter shite.
  • Gaiduku 3 years ago

    What was that Majoras mask thing about then? A remake? 3DS? Wii u ?
  • 32768Colours 3 years ago

    It gets worse!
  • Chojin 3 years ago

    That was depressing.
  • Weezer 3 years ago

    June 2012; when video gaming died.
  • whatfruit 3 years ago

    I still don't get the Wii U the controller looks really cumbersome and they are sticking with motion controls when they have been shown to be rubbish. Still expect ninty to sell a fuck ton though.
  • smelly 3 years ago

    >WTF IS NINTENDO LAND?!

    It's basically wii-sports, a collection of mini games to show off controller. I'm expecting it'll be free with the console.
  • Rangerwave 3 years ago

    Well....that was dreadful.
  • Weezer 3 years ago

    June 2012; when video gaming died.
  • joeymoto108 3 years ago

    That was kinda underwhelming...
  • craigm 3 years ago

    WTF??
  • gimo80 3 years ago

    Oh.
  • SpaceMonkey77 3 years ago

    Perhaps the Nintendo fanboys will at last realise that Nintendo have lost the plot.

    Its Sony or MS if you want solid games, now.

    Nintendo's poorest con yet. Thing is how do you get feedback to Nintendo?
  • smelly 3 years ago

    Well that was dull, not as dull as microsofts yesterday.. but still dull. Was kinda hoping for a zelda tease.
  • StriderGoL 3 years ago

    It was Nintendos for the taking and they blew it, too many kiddy and lifestyle games, does nobody want core gamers anymore??
  • Baleoce 3 years ago

    "all about the games" wut.
  • LudusSolers 3 years ago

    Well that's it, this entire E3 has left me feeling deflated. Really disappointing from Nintendo.
  • dogmanstaruk 3 years ago

    So basically they don't have any big hitters for launch. EA quiet, Activision quiet, 2K quiet. Ubisoft the usual launch drivel apart from Creed.
  • jellyBelly 3 years ago

    no big reveal at the end????? zelda, reto studions, star fox, f-zero? It was actually worse than last year!!
  • Mr_Understanding 3 years ago

    Waste of 60 min
  • joeymoto108 3 years ago

    Wayyyy too much emphasis on Nintendo Land, and I still don't understand what it actually is!
  • jimnastics 3 years ago

    I feel sorry for the Queen, this ruined her Jubilee :(
  • Otis_Inf 3 years ago

    No zelda, like they showed last year? Interesting... or they keep it under wraps for TGS, but why do that? Nintendo needs all the big titles they can get at launch...
  • CloisterBlack 3 years ago

    did they announce the specs of the console?
  • camaway 3 years ago

    I never thought I would say this about a Nintendo presentation but this sucked balls, big time.
  • Gaiduku 3 years ago

    rather tepid round of applause at the end
  • makeamazing 3 years ago

    Well thats confirmed it, Nintendo don't know hardcore gamers and they are squarely aimed at kids... worst show, and i didn't think i would be saying that after MS's show yesterday. Thank goodness for Ubisoft.
  • Gilgamesh 3 years ago

    Just awful. Wow!
  • Old_Books 3 years ago

    Oh Nintendo, you really don't get it do you. Batman and ME, its all very nice but people have already played these. Big doubts now.
  • cukydoh 3 years ago

    @digitalash Yup.
  • bawsedog 3 years ago

    WHAT IS NINTENDOLAND? Maybe not being in my preteens inhibits my understanding, but I just don't get it.
  • yonatan_z 3 years ago

    seriously?
  • jimnastics 3 years ago

    My bank holiday weekend has just been totally ruined at 5pm on the last day, thanks Ninty
  • dogmanstaruk 3 years ago

    Jesus that was BAD.

    WTF IS NINTENDO LAND?! YOU DIDNT EVEN TELL US!!!
  • chessboxer 3 years ago

    Where was the dubstep?
  • craigm 3 years ago

    nintendo made microsofts conference look good
  • 32768Colours 3 years ago

    I hate the fact that the games industry fundamentally misunderstands what makes "core" gamers happy. Its not just fucking zombies and soldiers you know!
  • whatfruit 3 years ago

    here comes usher.
  • digitalash 3 years ago

    Sony won, by virtue of being slightly less pathetic.
  • drip 3 years ago

    Screw you guys, I'm going home.
  • munki83 3 years ago

    poor show ninty :(
  • Senate 3 years ago

    Does Nintendo never learn - bad launch games and poor first year games. There was nothing here apart from AC3
  • jimnastics 3 years ago

    yes Reggie, let's have one more walk through the theme park... jesus fucking christ
  • Rens11 3 years ago

    Worst e3 ever back to skyrim for me
  • wellzy4eva 3 years ago

    People moan that Nintendo don't launch enough first party games and then moan about too much mario... they can't make a Triple A Zelda/Mario game every year
  • Durandle 3 years ago

    Yeah... where are the "big" 1st party titles for launch?
  • Avaloner 3 years ago

    24 WiiU games and 8 3DS games shown, I counted
  • LFace 3 years ago

    All aboard the nintenfailboat
  • jellyBelly 3 years ago

    very predictable so far, no new games i didnt now where coming except trine 2
  • dogmanstaruk 3 years ago

    Nintendo are fucked when the other two bring their new consoles next year.
  • Bulbatron 3 years ago

    Nice to see stuff like Batman Arkham City and Mass Effect 3 on Wii U, but Mass Effect 3 I'll eventually buy on Xbox 360, to continue my character started in Mass Effect 1, and Batman Arkham City I already have - once again, on the Xbox 360.
  • cukydoh 3 years ago

    I'll be honest, i didnt want a WiiU and I was secretly hoping this was gonnacome out with some awesome Zelda and new IPs to convince me. Maybe another new monster hunter or upscale of Tri? But no.. Just a giant shit sandwich served up by your favourite peado chef, Reggie. F off Reggie...
  • Avatargr 3 years ago

    wow and I thought the MS conference was bad
  • jimnastics 3 years ago

    Mario Kart WiiU would have easily glossed over all the utter shite... so disappointed
  • captainrentboy 3 years ago

    All they had to do was announce a sexy new F Zero game, was it so difficult?? WAS IT??
    Damn you Reggie.
  • Tekkirai 3 years ago

    Disgraceful, worse than MS and that's an epic achievement.
  • Gambit1977 3 years ago

    So Batman is their AAA launch game??
    Fuck that then, I'm out. Pathetic
  • GundamJehutyKai 3 years ago

    After the last 2 conferences, the bar wasn't exactly set very high, but Ninty couldn't even surpass that!!
  • riseer 3 years ago

    Safe to say Nintendo's E3 was the worse by far Sony>MS>>>>>Nintendo
  • JetSetWilly 3 years ago

    Luigi's Ghosts. A game about batteries running out. Fuck me.
  • Laserbrain 3 years ago

    A ripple of embarrassed applause.
  • dogmanstaruk 3 years ago

    No thanks Reggie. I've got no interest in wasting time on this console.

    Smash bros 3DS will be shown tomorrow I bet

    This is so ugly and crap..Nintendo i was really hoping you guys would grow up.
  • Gambit1977 3 years ago

    Triple a Reggie...where?
  • SpaceMonkey77 3 years ago

    hey peeps

    Not impressed by WiiU? Me neither. A few good looking games, but no cigar.

    Like I said, Nintendo haven't a clue.
  • bawsedog 3 years ago

    @jimnastics, still not even sure what it actually is
  • cukydoh 3 years ago

    /golfclap
  • craigm 3 years ago

    just horrible
  • cukydoh 3 years ago

    So... wtf is Nintendo Land? He spent so long talking about ghosts he forgot to actually explain it... Is it Mario Party or PS Home? -_-
  • ollyn 3 years ago

    Loll bloody autocorrect salads=zelda
  • wellzy4eva 3 years ago

    I feel for Nintendo, they make all these great games for kids and all the kids want is COD or Fifa...
  • digitalash 3 years ago

    I want my hour back.
  • jimnastics 3 years ago

    Seriously, Nintendoland is their big finale? IT'S UTTER DROSS
  • captainrentboy 3 years ago

    Pikmin, Lego City and Zombiu, that's the only titles that have looked even slightly fun. Everything else has either been a port of an existing title that's been out for months, or casual gamer tedious bollocks.
    Turns out Nintendo's conference didn't save the show, just as terrible as the other two. :(
  • Gambit1977 3 years ago

    This is pure wanky bollocks
  • Rens11 3 years ago

    No smash bros 3ds? :/
  • Rens11 3 years ago

    No smash bros 3ds? :/
  • Tekkirai 3 years ago

    Huge rant incoming at the first article EG gives me a chance. What a farce.
  • FirLocke 3 years ago

    Nintendo screwed it up. So disappointed.
  • wellzy4eva 3 years ago

    lol @ Timotei
  • homelessbaby 3 years ago

    hasn't this been more than an hour?
  • cukydoh 3 years ago

    Oh gawd, this is so dull!! Lol. Most unintuitive game ever if it needs to be paused and explained so much..
  • jimnastics 3 years ago

    a new 3D mario, even just a SMG3, would have set this console off big time... I can't believe they've missed this
  • ollyn 3 years ago

    Twilight princess was a gc game reconditioned for wii. They might release a hd skyward but full salads are usually spaced further apart so I don't expect a new one.
  • digitalash 3 years ago

    Wii-remote batteries running out all the time? How do they come up with these fantastical concepts?
  • riseer 3 years ago

    I am already waiting for next years E3.
  • dogmanstaruk 3 years ago

    Thank god I've got my PS3 and PC to play until next gen arrives.
  • Sharzam 3 years ago

    They really need a big WOW title. Like Super Mario 64 (N64) or Halo (Xbox) to really make people get excited so far its all justa bit meh
  • ChanTheMan 3 years ago

    I'm just listening to this now. Not even bothering to watch the video. Reading these comments are more interesting!
  • drip 3 years ago

    There's not going to be another E3 love letter from EG next year.
  • Gearskin 3 years ago

    This ghost game looks fun as hell!
  • cukydoh 3 years ago

    Odd how none of the games shown so far support more than one Wii U tablet controller, despite making a big deal at the start it was possible...
  • Otis_Inf 3 years ago

    A lot of babbling about a very silly mini game. Priorities, Nintendo! And, no having 2 people talking at the same time on stage isn't helpful.
  • craigm 3 years ago

    worst e3 presentation this year by far
  • dogmanstaruk 3 years ago

    You would have thought that they would realise that a 3d Mario like Galaxy would have created much needed buzz and excitement. Or even a massive mainstream annoucement like cod, or fifa.
  • rockavitch 3 years ago

    "The people on the main screen can not see the ghosts", do you want to say that one more time, I don't think we quite get it.
  • lavalant 3 years ago

    This couldn't be done on any other console....or phone.
  • Gambit1977 3 years ago

    Surely a triple A launch title wasn't too much to ask?
  • jimnastics 3 years ago

    Remember the Zelda and flying bird demo thingy from last year? I was so happy then :(
  • Senate 3 years ago

    hmmm... this is kinda disappointing
  • wellzy4eva 3 years ago

    mini game collections?
  • riseer 3 years ago

    @cukydoh,I am not sure if the Euro Home bombed but in the US their are a lot of people on it.
  • karaokequeen3 3 years ago

    Not sure what to make of the Wii U lineup...
  • Avatargr 3 years ago

    Pac-man!
  • mstrsystm 3 years ago

    The Tanks game in Wii Play was epic, minimalistic game design. Getting through to Mission 100 is no simple feat either. If there's anything with as much hidden depth as that in NintendoLand I'll be happy.
  • digitalash 3 years ago

    Pacman. You call this progress?
  • GundamJehutyKai 3 years ago

    Pac-man?
  • BOFH_UK 3 years ago

    This feels like a console that's been out for years. So far no new titles at all from Nintendo, just sequels, and nothing that really sells the gamepad as a game changer. Really hope I'm wrong but haven't been this disappointed at a presentation for a long time, hope they've got something big lined up we haven't seen yet.
  • riseer 3 years ago

    Nintendo is so creative....
  • cukydoh 3 years ago

    Glad to see Ninty and moving away from the shovelware pandemic of the Wii. /end sarcasm.
  • Phreak_UK 3 years ago

    @WadiumArcadium Couldn't possibly be as pointless as Home. Nothing is.
  • bawsedog 3 years ago

    What's the point in this guy standing there talking Japanese and being completely overruled by the loudspeaker in English? May as well not be there.
  • jimnastics 3 years ago

    there was always going to be a WiiSports type game to bundle, no great surprise, but this console needs a 1st party massive launch game like Twilight Princess was
  • Rens11 3 years ago

    Nintendo's PlayStation home then inte
  • homelessbaby 3 years ago

    they have the best intentions but imo the wheels have fallen off of this presentation
  • cukydoh 3 years ago

    So is Nintendo Land basically PS Home, which bombed because no-one wanted it and it was useless no matter what content they threw at it? -_-
  • Gambit1977 3 years ago

    Drugs...too many drugs
  • riseer 3 years ago

    Nintendo Home?
  • WadiumArcadium 3 years ago

    So it's sort of Home?

  • digitalash 3 years ago

    Oh, they're raiding the vaults again, are they? I take the new game part back.
  • Osahi 3 years ago

    My eyelids are getting heavy. Is this the fallout off staying up for Sony, or is this show just getting more boring with the minute?
  • drip 3 years ago

    When do they show The Legend of ZeldaU? That might finally be something really interesting.
  • dogmanstaruk 3 years ago

    more party mini games yay!!!!!!
  • riseer 3 years ago

    I don't like looking at my controller when i play a game.
  • dogmanstaruk 3 years ago

    This is going to be the finale I bet.
  • Old_Books 3 years ago

    Don't see the third party support here. Pikmin 3 and ZombiU look good, though.
  • rockavitch 3 years ago

    Wii Sport and Wii Sport resort are being counted as two separate francises? Ok then...
  • mstrsystm 3 years ago

    NintendoLand is the new Wii Play then.
  • bawsedog 3 years ago

    Didn't know Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort were two seperate properties :-P
  • Gambit1977 3 years ago

    What's this shit?
  • digitalash 3 years ago

    Nintendo in actual new game shocker.
  • Bulbatron 3 years ago

    ZombiU did looks as though it could be promising...
  • riseer 3 years ago

    I just don't think the WiiU pad is all that.
  • jimnastics 3 years ago

    They can not sell this console without a massive laun title... new Super Mario Galaxy, Mario Kart or Zelda... otherwise this could massively flunk
  • cukydoh 3 years ago

    @ellzy4eva Isn't it out in 6 months though... Shouldn't that be kinda y;know... sorted by now? And they think they can support TWO controllers when one isn't working yet? -_- Worrying...
  • GundamJehutyKai 3 years ago

    I'm scared now...
  • kinky_mong 3 years ago

    That ZombiU actually looked alright, good use of the pad too without being overly gimmicky.

    So have we seen the power of this or not???
  • dogmanstaruk 3 years ago

    No Far Cry 3? Interesting.
  • wellzy4eva 3 years ago

    @Cukydoh it's already been said that the prototype is wired
  • JetSetWilly 3 years ago

    More scanning with the fucking gamepad. Amazing.
  • cukydoh 3 years ago

    Anyone else notice how the Wii U controllers are all connected by a cable? Isn't it supposed to be wireless?
  • drip 3 years ago

    More NSMB, more Batman Arkham City, more Wii Fit, more Dancing games, Mass Effect 3, more Zombies... I don't like where this is going.
  • Britler 3 years ago

    Fnally, an awesome looking game, and it has a title that makes it sound like it's some generic offbrand game or something
  • riseer 3 years ago

    Looks broke lol
  • rockavitch 3 years ago

    ZombieU looks fantastic

    I'll try that at work. Typing in 3 different numbers on a keypad and I can call myself a hacker!
  • dogmanstaruk 3 years ago

    Ah..The new Red Steel. It could be ok though.
  • cukydoh 3 years ago

    None of that is in-game though... Even the hands holding the Wii controller were CG'd. Why fake it all? -_-
  • GundamJehutyKai 3 years ago

    Well, ZombieU looks more promising but I'm getting massive "Red Steel" vibes from it...
  • craigm 3 years ago

    1st bit of promise
  • digitalash 3 years ago

    Actually looks good, but that name is pitiful.
  • Gambit1977 3 years ago

  • Lunastra78 3 years ago

    Reggie, I wyll say thesee only unce..
  • riseer 3 years ago

  • mstrsystm 3 years ago

  • dogmanstaruk 3 years ago

    Thank you for giving me the opportunity to sell more launch shovelware like Red Steel
  • Phreak_UK 3 years ago

    HE BROUGHT SOME GAMES. HOLY MOLY. AT LEAST SOMEONE DID.
  • ChanTheMan 3 years ago

    If they don't drop very fast quick bits of Star Fox, F-Zero, Zelda, DKC or Metroid or something before the end, I really couldn't give a shit about the Wii U at this current time
  • riseer 3 years ago

    I really hate the WiiU touch screen controller.
  • cukydoh 3 years ago

    Ugh, shut up, please stop spouting that scripted BS!!! :(

    Ubisoft are sleeping around...
  • cukydoh 3 years ago

    *yawn* Please stop bullshitting...
  • munki83 3 years ago

    Reggie is looking a bit like the badguy in the original Conan. Hopefully he turns into a snake to make the show more exciting
  • caligari 3 years ago

  • Gambit1977 3 years ago

    This actually looks great!
  • craigm 3 years ago

    yawn
  • ludodown 3 years ago

    Pikmin 3 looks nice but nothing compelling for a day one WiiU purchase here. 10 mins left to change that...
  • digitalash 3 years ago

    @Widge I wish I could like that comment.
  • Britler 3 years ago

    Nothing against Lego games, but how does it get like 5 minutes out of the one hour they get to introduce a new god damn console?
  • kinky_mong 3 years ago

    Lego GTA: Cop edition!
  • Lukree 3 years ago

    That Lego thing looks actually really nice!
  • drip 3 years ago

    @munki83 you've seen them already. You know, those that were released on other platforms in the last years.
  • digitalash 3 years ago

    This looks fun, reminds me of old school Lego Island.
  • Sharzam 3 years ago

    So far no reason to buy a Wii-U. Iam actually surprised as i thought they would have something special.

    Excuse me Reggie...where are the compelling games you promised?
  • munki83 3 years ago

    ok ninty how about some 'core' games
  • drip 3 years ago

    I want Mario games, but I expect more than remakes and remakes with added gold.
  • mstrsystm 3 years ago

    Lego GTA
  • MMMarmite 3 years ago

    @Oldest_Ancient - I imagine they're going to sell physical Mario stickers

  • Kremlik 3 years ago

    More new games on the 3DS... Hmmm I'll buy well before the WiiU
  • 32768Colours 3 years ago

    When you hear these PR guys actually talking, they try to say things in the same way they write their press releases. They read badly enough, but said aloud it just seems awkward and more than just a little embarrassing.
  • cukydoh 3 years ago

    So these count as part of the 23 games? -_- *sigh*
  • Gaiduku 3 years ago

    So 2am Thursday morning for that right?
  • homelessbaby 3 years ago

    no pokemon?
  • Widge 3 years ago

    Yes. I am in agreement with all the people on here showing dismay that Nintendo are releasing games featuring their iconic characters on their consoles.

    -_-
  • jimnastics 3 years ago

    15 mins to save this presentation... this is woeful
  • Britler 3 years ago

    They deliberately structured it so the Mario games would all be announced together. christ, ou people will complain about anything.
  • dogmanstaruk 3 years ago

    This show is so bloody slow and stale....
  • mstrsystm 3 years ago

    Shenmue 3DS it is then.

    The only Mario-related game I've ever really liked was Luigi's Mansion on GameCube. Shame this new Luigi's Mansion game isn't on Wii U.
  • ChanTheMan 3 years ago

    Luigi's Mansion looks way more interesting than both Mario Bros games
  • riseer 3 years ago

    This is why i don't own anything Nintendo just won't grow up.

    No party members?

    Oh wait, the mansion game that they taked about LAST year at E3 and said it was coming out...
  • dogmanstaruk 3 years ago

    @wellzy4eva Like MS I think Sony are more interested in next gen.
  • makeamazing 3 years ago

    I didn't think anyone could be worse than MS's E3 show, but I've been proven wrong so far... they've got 30 mins to turn it around.

    The 3DS needing it's own show - kinda shows they want to push the handheld market more

    First time I've bothered watching the live stream instead of just reading the headlines... How do people sit through these every single year?!

    Does everyone HAVE to play?

    oh shit please no
  • dogmanstaruk 3 years ago

    OH GAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD
    DDDDDDDDDDDDD. NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Britler 3 years ago

    That whole video should really have been about emphasizing the fact that the girl can be doing her WiiFit while the dude watches TV. Or vice-versa, whatever. instead we get a bunch of random shots of them playing Wii Fit with the gamepad on the floor next to them.
  • Osahi 3 years ago

    No no no Nintendo. Don't go down this road now. No dancing, no singing, no fitting, no activity sensoring puh-lease...
  • cukydoh 3 years ago

    What about the sound, wouldn't that really piss her off watching TV if his controller is beeping and whirring away? And would it not annoy him if he then had to turn it off or go to another room? -_-
  • dogmanstaruk 3 years ago

    So basically they are going to sell the same game & board for the 3rd time.
  • riseer 3 years ago

  • JetSetWilly 3 years ago

    So a Pikmin that looks like it always has, and some lame gimmicks in Batman that are of the same crap ilk third-parties trotted out in 2006. Rubbish so far.

  • Sharzam 3 years ago

    So we have seen a total of one new game ?
  • Widge 3 years ago

    The third part of Mass Effect is as underwhelming as the PS3 coming in at part 2 :/

    I suppose this shows that there is good third party support though. Thats the point.
  • digitalash 3 years ago

    Was not expecting ME3.
  • Gambit1977 3 years ago

    Wow wonder if Me3 has lost the lag
  • cukydoh 3 years ago

    Port port port port port port port port port port port port port port........... *YAAAWWWWNNNN*

    Looks like Nintendo is catching up with current gen first...
  • dogmanstaruk 3 years ago

    me3 is pointless. the last game in a trilogy.

    Another port. 4 games down, 3 ports... Mass effect, 4/5 ports....

    Nice shoes, dude... o_O
  • Widge 3 years ago

    Batarang element = good
    Bat mode = that just another button
  • AdamAsunder 3 years ago

    Great game but it shouldn't be in the conference as it's going to be ancient by the time the Wii U comes out.

    NEW GAMES that are actually gone that going to convince me to buy a console. I've played this already.
  • weebl 3 years ago

    Nintendo: "You can't wear those shoes"

    Great a year old previous gen game for a launch title....
  • Phreak_UK 3 years ago

    As much as I love Arkham City, should this 'new' version really be front and centre?
  • Mr.Spo 3 years ago

    Got a little happier after Mario, it looked better than I thought it would. Nice Yoshi's Island style level in there too. Do we really need an on stage demo of a game that's been out for months?
  • Gambit1977 3 years ago

    Why is this on stage? Zzzzzzzzzz
  • o_ci2007 3 years ago

    am impressed
  • Sharzam 3 years ago

    would of been out for a year by time see wiiu

  • kinky_mong 3 years ago

    Oh look, it a twat from a company that forces Rocksteady to split the game up into expensive DLC.

    Unique ;-)
  • wellzy4eva 3 years ago

  • dogmanstaruk 3 years ago

    I would have preferred a 3d mario tbh
  • fleagol 3 years ago

    Nintendo lead out with a cutesy strategy game and a 2D side-scroller. Completely different planet from MS & Sony. Not a single explosion!
  • OJSlaughter 3 years ago

    Man, I was hoping for one of the guys from Rocksteady. They are always great.
  • wellzy4eva 3 years ago

    ooh, it's a year old game...
  • weebl 3 years ago

    Ah Batman! But I already own that...
  • ChanTheMan 3 years ago

    Not psyched for Mario Bros I'm afraid. Why not do it like Mario World?
  • cukydoh 3 years ago

    Oooh Arkham Ci... ty.. wait, thats been out for AGES...
  • cukydoh 3 years ago

    @MMMarmite I guess it has to, to support the existing controllers. The Wii U controller has a sensor bar in the top though, so maybe something useful will come out of that.
  • lavalant 3 years ago

    meh, to similar to Wii and DS nsm games.
  • AdamAsunder 3 years ago

    Wake me up when the games actually turn up. All three have waffled on about this superfluous bollocks.

    But can I go on Miiverse from my microwave while sitting in my refrigirator?
  • camaway 3 years ago

    IR is just to change channels on the TV, the Gamepad is Bluetooth

    @mstrsystem that's exactly why I'm looking forward to it
  • Gambit1977 3 years ago

    Maarrrrrrrrrriioo
  • MMMarmite 3 years ago

    Still using IR & sensor bar by the looks of it
  • myiagros 3 years ago

  • berelain 3 years ago

    Why not on Launch day, Reggie?
  • wellzy4eva 3 years ago

    porn ads in speech bubbles?
  • matthewblackwell 3 years ago

    @Widge It is bluetooth but you can use IR for using the Wii U GamePad as a TV remote.
  • Mr.Spo 3 years ago

    23 games? Where are they?? 1 down, 22 to go...
  • mstrsystm 3 years ago

    I love the idea of Miiverse but how the heck are they going to stop it being full of profanity and manpart scribbles?
  • cukydoh 3 years ago

    @Zomoniac That's only for the TV remote, the controller is bluetooth still w/ the Wii U base unit.
  • kinky_mong 3 years ago

    Stop reiterating what was said in the video from Sunday and get to the games!
  • Gambit1977 3 years ago

    No nfs mention
  • myiagros 3 years ago

    how much is the second pad going to retail for? probably almost as much as the system.
  • Zomoniac 3 years ago

    IR pad? Arse. I don't keep my consoles in line of sight anymore since it hasn't been necessary this gen.
  • AdamAsunder 3 years ago

  • Osahi 3 years ago

    "Nintendo will only focus on games at E3. All the other stuff will come after." No release date or pricing then? Darn. My decision to preorder the system solely relies on those two
  • mstrsystm 3 years ago

    Anyone see Ubi's live demo of Rayman on the Wii U? Looked damn good co-op, for the player on the GamePad anyway.
  • FogHeart 3 years ago

    Two pads. We're golden. And yes, I do intend to include a cliche with every post.

    Seeing as Mass Effect seems likely to be heading to Wii U based on what was posted on the German ME page on Facebook, I think the 3rd party support (or the sheer amount of it) is going to surprise a lot of people. Some big franchises will make the sparkly and upgraded jump and we'll wonder why we ever doubted Nintendo in the first place.

    This E3 is theirs for the taking.
  • weebl 3 years ago

    Nintendo will not have a better year to wow than this. Microsoft and Sony have both played their poor hands and everyone is looking to Nintendo to show something new and exciting.

    It is a shame that the console and controller haven't exactly been well received so far so they are on the back foot in my opinion, especially given the odd 30 minutes pre-E3 video they issued yesterday. I feel that may have been a pre-emptive strike towards Microsoft and Sony in case they revealed anything.

  • LazyDan 3 years ago

    I predict that among other announcements, they'll announce that certain Wii games will output in HD on the Wii U, and a major annual multi-platform title will be coming to the Wii U at launch, and be *enhanced* over the other platforms. Can't wait though, Nintendo's conferences are always worth some amount of excitement and/or controversy.
  • Rodster 3 years ago

    There's rumors in the US that Ninty will announce a revised 3DS with a 4.3" screen. I'm glad I waited till now.

    Release is for this summer.
  • kirinnokoshin 3 years ago

    Pikmin, a couple of other EAD games and whatever Retro are working on would be my meat and potatoes, anything else is gravy.
  • eminusx 3 years ago

    Nintendo put a lot of distance between themselves and core gamers with Wii/motion control, this is their golden opportunity to claw them back. Really hope theyve done their homework!!

  • FogHeart 3 years ago

    I'm hoping for gameplay of any game that'll also be released for the PS3 and 360 - I'd like to buy the WiiU safe in the knowledge that it'll get parity with the other consoles from the get-go.
  • NeonStorm 3 years ago

    F-ZERO.
  • Mr.Spo 3 years ago

    I'd guess 3DS trailers and release dates will be along tomorrow, if this is solely Wii U.

    Hopefully means Nintendo have plenty of exclusive software to show, some good first party stuff, and perhaps something new from Miyamoto himself. Very exciting. Nintendo are remembering the key lesson so many forget--software sells hardware. E3 should be all about that.

16:18 By Oli Welsh

HAPPY NINTENDO DAY!

16:18 By Oli Welsh

True fact: it's always sunny on Nintendo day.

16:20 By Oli Welsh

We're installed in Nintendo's venue, the Nokia theatre. (Well, Bertie's not yet - additional security checks, obv.) It's markedly classier and more comfortable in here - no giant sweltering sports halls for the house of Mario.

16:21 By Oli Welsh

Spotted Mr Street Fighter, Yoshinori Ono, on the way in. He looked cute in his matching orange hair and trainers. And, wellwishers will be pleased to know, in good health.

16:23 By Oli Welsh

I BELIEVE

ukuleleimport says:

Do you believe in the Megaton?

16:24 By Oli Welsh

We had great fun recording this last night - John Teti, Matt Martin and I will keep you entertained while you wait.

Machetazo says:

Get thee to the eurogameological podcast, before Nintendo starts.

16:26 By Robert Purchese

Hello and good morning and good afternoon! The Eurogamer team is inside the Nokia Theatre. We're sitting in an area we're not allowed to, but they don't appear to have noticed yet.

16:27 By Robert Purchese

We spotted Capcom's Yoshinori Ono on his way in, and Capcom's David Reeves - Euro president - is sitting two rows back from us. Everyone seems to be here for what we hope is the most exciting of the three platform holder conferences so far.

16:28 By Robert Purchese

Dan Amrich, also known as One of Swords - he from Activision that often blogs about Call of Duty - has just swanned in.

16:30 By Robert Purchese

There's an air of expectation surrounding this conference. And I hear there are rumours of Mass Effect 3 on Wii U. I say.

16:31 By Robert Purchese

This is the most comfortable of the three conferences so far, for what it's worth. It's a sensible stage layout - I doubt Usher or Flo Rida are waiting in the wings.

16:32 By Robert Purchese

But could Ian Wright, ex-Arsenal footballer and Wii London launch celebrity, be here?!

16:33 By Robert Purchese

We saw UK boxer Amir Khan on our flight over. A Wii U boxing game announcement? It's a longshot.

16:34 By Robert Purchese

Jonathan Ross is here!

16:34 By Robert Purchese

He's three rows in front of us. He's got a new beard! Well, one we haven't seen.

16:35 By Robert Purchese

We can't wait to see the big man! He's so dynamic, so energetic!

caesar_ says:

MY BODY IS REGGIE

The12thMonkey says:

Does Jonathan Ross have a box of beards from which to chose?

16:37 By Robert Purchese

We're among the business bods, the VIPs. We're so naughty. I've got an orange wristband! I'm not one of you!

16:39 By Robert Purchese

There's a cluster of photographers at the stage, photographing a Wii U GamePad. They can't know that Jonathan Ross is here - he's got his own chat show!

16:40 By Robert Purchese

Yes, dubstep alert is on standby.

Pandy says:

We will know Nintendo is serious about appealing to core gamers when we hear dubstep.

16:40 By Tom Bramwell

Bring on the griiiiiiime.

16:42 By Robert Purchese

What wacky new IP will Nintendo have created for Wii U? Will Miyamoto conduct an orchestra? Will he do press-ups? What has he been up to? More importantly, has that Zelda Wii U tech demo become a real game?

16:44 By Oli Welsh

Er... http://twitpic.com/9t3n51

16:45 By Robert Purchese

The auditorium is filling up nicely now. We can't be far away from the off.

16:47 By Robert Purchese

Who will open the show? Iwata? Mario?

16:48 By Robert Purchese

Bob Hoskins?

16:50 By Robert Purchese

Nintendo sounds to have the same pre-show mixtape as Microsoft! No dubstep yet. Perhaps it's a generic E3 thing.

16:54 By Robert Purchese

The Wii U GamePad on stage is black, by the way. I've not seen a black version of it before.

16:54 By Robert Purchese

Black is the colour of core gaming, as demonstrated by the Pro Controller. Dubstep can't be far behind.

skowhegan says:

Nearly five years to the day that Miyamoto first mentioned Pikmin 3. It's been a long time coming.

16:56 By Robert Purchese

Eurogamer's Tom Phillips, working from the UK, is hyperventilating with all the excitement, I'm told. He wears Nintendo underpants - he's that big of a fan.

16:57 By Robert Purchese

We've all witnessed you say that now.

WillyWongler says:

@mstrsystm i'd run through the streets naked for a week if that gets announced!

16:59 By Robert Purchese

The teleprompters are in plain sight again.

16:59 By Robert Purchese

There aren't as many flashing lights and things going on as there was at Microsoft and Sony's conferences. It's less blingy, in other words.

17:01 By Robert Purchese

Is Reggie thundering around backstage, pumping Iwata up? "Shigsy, focus! Let's do it!"

17:01 By Robert Purchese

We are GO!

17:01 By Robert Purchese

We start with a video. We're looking at Miyamoto's dressing room. He's got Pikmin people on his desk!

17:02 By Robert Purchese

They're in his suit, in his pants maybe, and he's walking out. Is he coming on stage? All the Pikmin creatures are following him. HE'S HERE!

17:03 By Robert Purchese

He says maybe all the Pikmin are all around us. We're seeing an augmented reality camera show us Pikmin on our shoulders. Oh Nintendo, you jovial bunch.

17:03 By Robert Purchese

Bill Trinen, director of product marketing, is whistled for to translate for Miyamoto.

17:04 By Robert Purchese

Miyamoto is introducing Wii U, and discussing the goals of the machine, to make it non-dependent on one screen - the TV. Nintendo wanted to make the Wii U GamePad screen the first one they went to in the front room.

17:05 By Robert Purchese

The black Wii U GamePad he's holding looks a bit like an oversized Vita.

17:05 By Robert Purchese

A close-up of the Wii U hub unit. Has it changed?

17:05 By Robert Purchese

It's Pikmin 3!

17:06 By Robert Purchese

It's a real-time action management game. You command your Pikmin followers, as you know. The graphics on the foliage are realistic, but the Pikmin are painted in bright, contrasting cartoon colours. The result is visually very impressive.

17:08 By Robert Purchese

The gameplay we're seeing is very smooth. You can throw Pikmin in enemy eyes with the Wiimote. On the GamePad, you'll see the Pikmin game map. You can touch the map and scroll the environment, offering you more commands as, err, commander.

17:08 By Robert Purchese

Using just the GamePad, Pikmin is a top-down affair and you touch to order your followers around.

17:09 By Robert Purchese

You can see at a glance, on the GamePad, all four Pikmin leaders' status. He's talking about the demo that will be on the E3 show floor. The whole presentation is vibrant and fluid. It's the epitome of Nintendo so far.

17:10 By Robert Purchese

Miyamoto pulls out a Pikmin toy from his pocket in a scripted gag. It's a bit forced, but then there's infectious big old smile. Somehow, it works.

17:10 By Robert Purchese

And heeeeeeeere's Reggie!

17:11 By Robert Purchese

"I feel just like a purple Pikmin." He's into his familiar monotonous patter.

17:11 By Oli Welsh

Lots of "WOO! REGGGIEEE" around me in the audience.

17:11 By Robert Purchese

We're going to see 23 Wii U titles on stage today, he says. "And even then, that's only a small part of the range of Wii U and Nintendo 3DS titles playable in LA this week."

17:12 By Robert Purchese

He's talking about having a deep understanding of Wii U. Wii U changes our gaming, how we interact with our gaming friends, and changes the way we enjoy our TV.

17:13 By Robert Purchese

Netflix and Hulu Plus will be there. YouTube as well. Amazon Video, too. He's a walking, talking press release.

17:13 By Robert Purchese

Reggie is referencing the pre-E3 Nintendo broadcast, and how Nintendo will only focus on games at E3. All the other stuff will come after.

17:14 By Robert Purchese

You're killing it, Reggie. And not in a good way.

17:15 By Robert Purchese

There's the black Wii U GamePad and hub unit. Is it nicer than the white model?

17:15 By Robert Purchese

The Wii U hardware will support two separate GamePads, just like the NES did.

17:16 By Robert Purchese

Dual GamePad games won't be here at E3, it sounds like. But look out for them in the future.

17:17 By Robert Purchese

A video on screen is introducing us to the GamePad. We're seeing the analogue sticks, triggers, bumpers, infrared beamer. The GamePad has rumble and motion sensors.

17:17 By Robert Purchese

There's a built-in camera and microphone. There are stereo speakers and volume control. And finally the Home button that can suspend games for updates or connect with friends.

17:17 By Robert Purchese

Still no detail on the Wii U hub unit.

17:19 By Tom Bramwell

He's talking about Miiverse now and talking about how you can share screen images from the games you're playing, share game activity and stuff like that. All stuff familiar to those of you who saw the Sunday video.

17:20 By Robert Purchese

My connection dropped temporarily there, but Reggie is still waffling about Miiverse. He's saying what we already know.

17:20 By Tom Bramwell

Reggie's reiterating that all this will be web-enabled, too, post-launch, so that you can access this stuff via your mobile devices and PCs.

17:20 By Robert Purchese

Mahhhhhrio. Mahhhhhrio. Reggie's moving on to Nintendo's iconic frontman.

17:21 By Robert Purchese

New Super Mario Bros. U. You'll be able to see what other people are saying through Miiverse and connect in the game.

17:21 By Oli Welsh

Raccoon suit Toad. That's messed up.

17:21 By Robert Purchese

We see message bubbles of people above stages on the Mario stage map. "It's a new real-time social window that opens up while you play," he says.

17:22 By Robert Purchese

We're seeing a New Super Mario Bros. U trailer now. It's very bright and colourful. It looks lovely. Mario is swimming, balancing on platforms. Luigi's helping co-operatively. And now Toad is, too. The painterly backgrounds are wonderful.

17:22 By Tom Bramwell

The Mario footage is lovely. Underwater bits! A more interesting map! Beautiful backgrounds! Boos! Giant stars! Multi-hit goombas! A sort of balloon thing!

17:23 By Robert Purchese

Boost Mode. The Wii U GamePad player can place blocks to boost the speed of other people racing.

17:23 By Robert Purchese

Batman: Arkham City is coming to Wii U.

17:23 By Robert Purchese

Harley Quinn voice over addressing Reggie directly. Here comes Warner Bros. president Martin Tremblay.

17:24 By Robert Purchese

This is a unique edition of Arkham City. It's called the Armored Edition.

17:24 By Tom Bramwell

Oh dear, Harley Quinn's custom intro for Martin Tremblay from Warner Bros. was pretty cringe-worthy.

17:25 By Robert Purchese

Sefton Hill from developer Rocksteady is on the screen, telling us what's new.

17:25 By Robert Purchese

You can target-scan things using the Wii U GamePad. You can scroll through a menu. The Catwoman content is on Wii U.

17:26 By Robert Purchese

WB Games Montreal vice president Reid Schneider is here to walk us through the game's big features. That's the studio making the Wii U version.

17:26 By Robert Purchese

BAT mode. The BAT meter fills up and maxes out. Once maxed, you can use the GamePad to activate the BAT mode, making Bats even more powerful.

17:27 By Robert Purchese

We need to activate a switch, there's a newly designed remote controlled Batarang, that you can control with the GamePad.

17:27 By Robert Purchese

You can strategically place explosives on the wall using the GamePad, and detonate them one at a time - or all at once - using the Wii U controller.

17:28 By Robert Purchese

Batman's entire arsenal is available at the touch of a finger. The game looked very similar - identical? - to the PS3, 360 versions.

17:28 By Robert Purchese

Scribblenauts now. Jeremiah Slaczka from 5th Cell, the CEO, is here to present.

17:28 By Robert Purchese

He's got fierce red trainers on!

17:29 By Robert Purchese

Scribblenauts Unlimited is the name of the Wii U game.

17:30 By Robert Purchese

It's incredibly bright and crisp, thanks to being in HD on Wii U. You can draw things to life on the Wii U GamePad, and handle text input on the touch screen. There's a new multiplayer mode.

17:30 By Robert Purchese

We're done with Warner Bros. On to the next partner.

17:31 By Tom Bramwell

(There was a Nintendo 3DS logo at the bottom at the end as well, incidentally.)

17:31 By Tom Bramwell

Being able to create stuff in Scribblenauts and share it with the Miiverse sounds fun. The players in the video were putting mohawks on dogs and stuff.

17:31 By Robert Purchese

A trailer's showing us more games. There's Darksiders 2 from THQ. There's Mass Effect 3 confirmation!

17:32 By Robert Purchese

There's Tank! Tank! Tank! from Namco. There's Tekken Tag Tournament 2. There's Trine 2: Director's Cut.

17:32 By Robert Purchese

There's Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge. There's Aliens: Colonial Marines from Gearbox. And that's that.

17:33 By Robert Purchese

Now we're on to music and fitness genres. "Wii U will make both of these even better."

17:33 By Tom Bramwell

I've counted 11 games so far. Then again, I can't count terribly well.

17:33 By Robert Purchese

Reggie's talking about when Nintendo unveiled the Balance Board at E3, when Wii Fit was introduced. He's as wooden as a tree.

17:33 By Robert Purchese

"What was just one small step for me, was one giant step for expanding the universe of video games." Does he write this?

17:34 By Robert Purchese

More than 43 million copies of Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus have been sold around the world, he tells us.

17:34 By Robert Purchese

Wii Fit U.

17:35 By Robert Purchese

We're getting a first look. She's selecting a workout on the GamePad. She's on the balance board. She can use the GamePad screen for another angle on the floor. The man's on the Balance Board now. He's holding the Gamepad, aiming a water cannon. Err, that didn't look hard.

17:36 By Robert Purchese

Ah, she's using a tamogotchi thing to upload her run from this morning to the Wii U GamePad. Pity you can't strap the whole controller to your arm while you run, really.

17:36 By Robert Purchese

Golf clapping. New events, new exercise routines, and that new Fit Meter (the 'tamagotchi' thing), and off-TV play. They make it new all over again, Reggie insists.

17:37 By Robert Purchese

Now we're on to the music genre. "Almost everyone wants to be a rockstar." But there are two types, watching and performing.

17:37 By Robert Purchese

Introducing Sing by FreeStyleGames, the DJ Hero developer.

17:38 By Tom Bramwell

This is terrible karaoke etiquette. You do NOT sing along. AND DON'T LOOK AT ME.

17:38 By Robert Purchese

People are dancing and singing all together - one person holds a microphone and can see the words and directions to instruct people how to dance on her GamePad. They're all very glamorous. That's not what it looks like when I do karaoke.

17:38 By Robert Purchese

SiNG to give it its bizarre styling, is a working title.

17:39 By Robert Purchese

Nintendo America executive vice president Scott Moffitt is coming on to talk about 3DS.

17:39 By Tom Bramwell

Switching tack to 3DS now, but there should still be 10 more Wii U games to be announced, judging by my calculations.

17:39 By Robert Purchese

He's been taking lessons from stiff-as-a-plank Fils-Aime.

17:39 By Robert Purchese

Tomorrow at 6pm PT - 2am UK time, will be a webcast detailing 3DS games.

17:40 By Robert Purchese

Three Nintendo first-party titles now. First, New Super Mario Bros. 2.

17:41 By Tom Bramwell

Can everyone stop doing conferences at 2am UK time please? :-(

17:41 By Robert Purchese

New Super Mario Bros. 2 will be available in the US on 19th August, he announces.

17:41 By Robert Purchese

Paper Mario now, the RPG take on Mario. Paper Mario: Sticker Star on 3DS.

17:42 By Robert Purchese

There's a new element to the game and it's stickers would you ever believe. The stickers that you collect, by pulling them off the scenery, become your battle commands. We're seeing some of these on the screen. It looks very nice, but we'd rather hear about Wii U please.

17:42 By Robert Purchese

Paper Mario: Sticker Star arrives both physically and digitally this holiday season. That's Christmas time.

17:43 By Robert Purchese

What Nintendo 3DS doesn't have enough of yet, and what it's about to get "a healthy dose of", is Luigi. It's Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon.

17:44 By Robert Purchese

It's launching this holiday season. Moffitt's quick look at 3DS titles is nearly over. He'll be giving "several" third-party titles the airing they deserve tomorrow online.

17:45 By Robert Purchese

We're going to see a showreel of the third-party line-up. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion. Scribblenauts Unlimited. Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. And that's it, and here's Reggie.

17:46 By Robert Purchese

He's talking about Lego City, the Wii U game. The GamePad will be a "multi-purpose crime fighting tool", you know. We're seeing a trailer.

17:47 By Robert Purchese

A man is flying a helicopter with his GamePad. There seems to be a lot of screen tearing in this video. Crimes are sent to your GamePad by a talking head that pops out of a map scene.

17:48 By Robert Purchese

Lego City: Undercover, it's called. Lots of clapping. The man behind us thinks it looked "great". A portable version of Lego City: Undercover, for 3DS, is in the works, with bespoke content.

17:48 By Tom Bramwell

The Lego City video gets a warm reception. Lots of that looked fun - clambering around, scanning for criminals, looking for hidden stuff, some neat cut-scenes.

17:49 By Robert Purchese

Another third-party publisher to talk about on Wii U. It's Ubisoft, and we saw a lot of their games yesterday. Yves Guillemot, CEO of Ubisoft, is coming on stage. He's a very slight man.

17:49 By Robert Purchese

Reggie dwarfs him.

17:50 By Robert Purchese

He's bigging up the Wii U, and very obviously reading his teleprompter lines.

17:51 By Robert Purchese

The console is "accessible, it's social, it's very innovative. So it's a revolution." He says thanks on behalf of Ubisoft for the Wii U. Good grief. Now we're going to see Ubisoft's Wii U games. Again.

17:51 By Robert Purchese

Xavier Poix from Ubisoft will run us through the games. Just Dance 4 first.

17:52 By Robert Purchese

Reggie will be the puppet master. He's going to command the dancer that four dancers have come on stage to dance to, with their Wiimotes.

17:52 By Robert Purchese

It doesn't look like the dancers have rehearsed this one!

17:53 By Robert Purchese

He jokes that being Puppet Master is like being the head of Nintendo of America. Lots of laughter.

17:54 By Robert Purchese

Now ZombiU, the game that Ubisoft showed a cinematic trailer for yesterday, that focused on the UK and a zombie outbreak. It was very gory. Now we're seeing gameplay.

17:54 By Robert Purchese

Is it on-rails?

17:55 By Robert Purchese

He's using the GamePad as a scope to target. He's ordering it to shoot, he's shaking it to shake off a zombie. The hand we're seeing in the video is CGI!

17:56 By Robert Purchese

Reggie's taking a picture of himself, and it's being Zombie-fied, just like that app from the App Store. Reggie's getting into it. "I like French food," he moans. "I'm hungry now!"

17:56 By Robert Purchese

Assassin's Creed 3. Rabbins Land. Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2013. Rayman Legends... Meanwhile, a set is being carried on stage.

17:57 By Robert Purchese

There are three archways, two pink, one green.

17:57 By Robert Purchese

Here come another two archways. What is all this for?

17:57 By Tom Bramwell

That's 22. There's one more game to announce.

17:57 By Robert Purchese

All of the Wii U units are wired in this conference, by the way. "Welcome to Nintendo Land," Reggie announces.

17:58 By Robert Purchese

What if all the Nintendo brands came together? He muses. He's talking about how Wii Tennis demonstrated what a Wii could do. And on Wii U, Nintendo Land will do the same thing.

18:00 By Tom Bramwell

Nintendo Land is a single game that brings together 12 different attractions, five of which are at E3 for us to try.

18:00 By Tom Bramwell

The Legend of Zelda: Battle Quest, Animal Crossing: Sweet Days and Luigi's Ghost Mansion are among them. They're multiplayer. Single-player ones are Donkey Kong's Crash Course and Takamaru's Ninja Castle.

18:01 By Tom Bramwell

They look like they're derived from the tech demos we saw last year.

18:01 By Tom Bramwell

Nintendo Land's meant to be a theme park where people can experience different games that highlight the best features of Wii U.

18:01 By Tom Bramwell

It's a "place where visitors from all around the world can gather", thanks to Miiverse.

18:02 By Tom Bramwell

It's on-screen now and it looks a bit like a giant flashy Mario Party board with Miis wandering around on it. We're going to learn more about it at a developer roundtable later tonight.

18:03 By Tom Bramwell

The man on-stage is Katsuya Eguchi, by the way. He's discussing how the asymmetric gameplay will be, well, great. He's using Luigi's Ghost Mansion as an example.

18:03 By Tom Bramwell

Multiplayer Luigi's Ghost Mansion is going to make you feel like you're walking down a corridor being haunted by a ghost.

18:04 By Tom Bramwell

One player wanders around a maze while others pursue him. The players have very different perspectives - the GamePad ghosts can see all the players all the time, but the big-screen player cannot.

18:04 By Tom Bramwell

It's very reminiscent of Pac-Man Vs. Chris Donlan suggests there's shades of Johann Sebastian Joust, too.

18:04 By Tom Bramwell

The Wii U GamePads rumble when other ghosts get near, so players have to talk to each other in order to locate nearby ghosts and then shine their flashlights to isolate the ghosts. Leave the lights on too long and they run out of battery.

18:05 By Tom Bramwell

Not sure I explained that brilliantly, but hopefully you get the asymmetric gameplay point...

18:05 By Tom Bramwell

Players can revive other players who have been incapacitated by ghosts. It's all about teamwork, basically.

18:06 By Tom Bramwell

Haha.

drip says:

There's not going to be another E3 love letter from EG next year.

18:06 By Robert Purchese

Shining lights run downs the battery power of the torches. Of course! And so the ghost strikes. The GamePad rumbles when one players is caught. The other players come and help. What do you think? A smattering of applause.

18:07 By Tom Bramwell

"So what do you think?" Eguchi asks. The audience applauds politely. It's not gone down amazingly well, although it does look like a lot of fun.

18:07 By Robert Purchese

We're going to see a Nintendo Land trailer. It's very bright - who would have thought?

18:07 By Robert Purchese

The arches on stage are the same as the arch-portals in the game's hub screen that a train chugs around. It's a cartoon feast of colours.

18:08 By Robert Purchese

Nintendo Land will launch at the same time as the Wii U hardware this holiday, announces Reggie Fils-Aime.

18:08 By Tom Bramwell

Those 23 games again in full:

1. Pikmin 3
2. New Super Mario Bros. U
3. Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition
4. Scribblenauts Unlimited
5. Darksiders 2
6. Mass Effect 3
7. Tank! Tank! Tank!
8. Tekken Tag Tournament 2
9. Trine 2: Director's Cut
10. Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge
11. Aliens: Colonial Marines
12. Wii Fit U
13. Sing
14. Lego City: Undercover
15. Just Dance 4
16. ZombiU
17. Assassin's Creed 3
18. Rabbids Land
19. YourShape: Fitness Evolved 2013
20. Rayman Legends
21. Sports Connection
22. The Avengers: Battle for Earth
23. Nintendo Land

18:09 By Robert Purchese

As soon as the Nintendo E3 conference finishes, you online will be able to "dive deeper" into what you've seen at e3.nintendo.com and on Facebook and YouTube. Nintendo's really hitting the online presentations this year.

18:10 By Robert Purchese

"If you imagine the Wii U as a Wii universe, then that touch screen transports you to places you've never been before," says Reggie.

18:10 By Robert Purchese

"The promise of Wii U is simple: together, better." And with that, Reggie Fils-Aime, and the Nintendo E3 conference, is done. One last trailer of Nintendo Land.

18:11 By Robert Purchese

A Mii character is witnessing a firework display. Trumpets! And a Nintendo logo. Brief. Weird.

18:12 By Robert Purchese

We're finished here, Eurogamer readers - it's time to go to the E3 show proper! Thanks for joining us. Bye!

18:13 By Tom Bramwell

Thanks everyone! Those of us in LA are off to do the show now. Those of us in the UK will be piledriving as many assets and stuff onto the site as possible. Oh, and look out for more previews (Tomb Raider etc) in a few hours.
