This morning in Japan, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata held Nintendo Direct, a press conference that aimed to outline the future of Wii U. It definitely did not disappoint as many new games and features were announced for the console.
Here are the highlights of what was announced at the conference:
Also announced were updates to the software with the aim of improving the system, shortening the load times on the Wii U GamePad being specifically mentioned.
So quite a lot was announced then, but really there were no surprises here. Nintendo heavily rely on their existing franchises so new Mario, Mario Kart and Zelda games were easy to predict. Frankly it would be outrageous if they didn’t make these games. Some new exciting announcements would have been nice, maybe even an attempt to start a new franchise that didn’t rely on existing characters.
What are your thoughts on these announcements? Do you wish Nintendo was a bit more creative these days? Let me know in the comments below.
