Nobody but Nintendo can do what Nintendo did today. Out of nowhere Nintendo has announced two Zelda games, a new Mario Kart, a new 3D Mario game, a new Monolith adventure and an top-end RPG mashup from Atlus and Intelligent Systems. Who else could bring you that? Nobody.
Sure, it does whiff a bit of a company that has felt pressured to say something ahead of E3 but this is exactly what we've all be screaming for.
We all knew that Nintendo would have a 3D Mario and a Mario Kart in the works but without the official announcement the whole world whinges and whines that the Wii U has no games coming out.
Well... now it's official. From March onwards the Wii U is brimming with great games.
LEGO City: Undercover, Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate, Rayman Legends, Need For Speed: Most Wanted, Disney Infinity, Resident Evil Revelations, Pikmin 3, Wonderful 101... and then we're into June and the E3 showcase of Bayonetta 2, Super Smash Bros., Mario Kart, Yoshi Yarn, Wind Waker, New Zelda... the list just goes on and on.
If that list doesn't excite you then you're obviously not a fan of Nintendo games. Jeez, if this lot doesn't excite you I feel sorry for you.
