Their big announcement was half a dozen Mario games, like Mario Kart, then was Wind Waker HD, then a new Zelda game we know nothing about, and finally Wii U Party.

First off the Mario games. Yes, he got the gaming industry back going in the 80's, but do we need a dozen announcements every year for him? Cut back on him a little and let the other franchises get some ground, or make a new one.

Then Wind Waker HD... It was hated on GCN, and it was regarded as among the worst Zelda games ever made due to uninteresting story and too much sailing around. But now that its getting an HD port, is that anything to be excited for? If you hated it then, you'll hate it now.

Next is Zelda HD. Yes, everyone has been wanting it for a long time now, a Zelda game that looks beautiful in HD. However, nothing else was talked about or shown for it, except they are again changing the formula. By the way, Zelda 2 changed the formula. Wind Waker changed the formula. Skywayrd Sword changed the formula. All of these games got bashed by Zelda fans because they didnt fit. Not saying they were especially terrible games, though, but the general feel of the community was they deviated too much. Now they announce they want to completely deviate, and its amazing?

Finally... Wii U Party. Of course, THIS must be the key! Everyone sell your PS3's, Xbox's, and Vitas! You need to get this huge game, only available on Wii U!!!


Seriously, though, this announcement just further proves my point I made when X/Y were announced. Nintendo doesn't have to show anything amazing, nor do they have to promise a great experience. A few years ago people hated them, but now anything they say makes people drool and get excited?



You missed a few. But it makes sense that Nintendo would try to excite their 9-10 million fans that haven't bought a Wii U yet. Everyone else just expected better.

Oh, and about Zelda games changing the formula...they don't. 3D Zeldas are all pretty similar. Visit a forest dungeon, a mountain/volcano dungeon, and then a water dungeon. Then after the first three dungeons, the game's plot advances and then you do some more dungeons in order. Then you beat the final boss. The formula hasn't been changed. People are actually complaining about the fact that it hasn't.

And more people would complain if it did. Zelda should play like zelda. However the formula has evolved way beyond your dumbed down description.

We'll just pretend X and SMTxFireEmblem doesn't exist, and that they are scheduling another N Direct for 3rd party games.
