Iwata Announces Games During Nintendo Direct

In the new Nintendo Direct, Satoru Iwata announced a number of new titles, including a new Yoshi game, a callboration between Nintendo and Atlus, and a remake to a classic that came out ten years ago.

 

After confirming that Wii U will not be seeing any new titles in the next two months, Mr. Iwata announced that starting in March, Wii U gamers will see a number of titles reach their system, including Lego City, The Wonderful 101, and Bayonetta. With both Bayonetta 2 and The Wonderful 101, Nintendo has announce that they will be doing a Iwata Asks with Platinum Games to talk about developing both titles. Mr. Iwata then stated that there will be screens and playable demos for the Wii U’s Smash Bros, a new 3D Mario (from the Makers of The Mario Galaxy Games), and Mario Kart at E3.

Iwata then announced that Good-Feel, the team that made Kirby’s Epic Yarn, will be making a new Yoshi game. Takashi Tezuka, who directed Yoshi’s Island and produced Yoshi’s Story, will be the overseeing supervisor. The game has a look of Kirby’s Epic Yarn, and looks like it will play a lot like it.

Afterwards, Iwata then announced a callberation between Atlus and Nintendo with Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem. Although all we have is concept art, we will be ready to hear more information as it comes out.

Then Eiji Aonuma, the current director of the Legend of Zelda series, talked about the direction that Zelda would be taking with the Wii U. He announced that they are working on a new Zelda Title for the Wii U, but they are too far away to show any assets. However, the game will be changing the feel of Zelda, hinting that the game will be more opened then it’s been in years.

Then he announced that there will be an HD version of the critical success “The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker” for the Wii U. Giving screen shots of an update version of the game, Aonuma show the power of Wii U and finally being able to see a Zelda game in HD.

This Nintendo Direct was what most Nintendo fans have asked for such a long time. It seems that Nintendo is trying to make a valid effort to promote for hardcore gamers. We can’t wait to see what Nintendo will do at E3.
