Nintendo are doing an excellent job at this year’s E3 of keeping up a steady flow of news about the upcoming software for their existing and upcoming consoles. With multiple streamed shows that are often targeted presentations, as opposed to random show floor reports from the company’s blog staff, before and during E3 itself they are providing plenty for you to see or for us to tell you about.
For those of your who were not watching Nintendo’s press conference streamed via their own e3.nintendo.com (or .co.uk, etc.) or who simply did not hang around afterwards you would have missed this banana-cupping presentation:
Clearly Nintendo really took to heart the criticism they received a year ago at the lack of clarity of the Wii U presentation at the time and have learnt from it. Out on the show floor itself Nintendo have selected some of their more photogenic employees to host short guides providing greater detail about some of the Wii U’s first party titles.
As a long-time fan of the series since its release ten years ago(!) on GameCube, Pikmin 3 really does look great to me. Check out the shine and texture on the leaves when they catch the light to see some of the visual fidelity Nintendo are adding to make the game’s environment so much richer. Oh, and you can watch Krysta tossing Pikmin too.
Jessie grabs Mario with both hands and makes little Yoshi swell up.
Watch Jessie work out with Wii Fit U.
Are the Wii U’s games starting to look good to you yet?
