Wii U and Nintendo 3DS Bring the Fun Back into Gaming
Nintendo’s Wii U last year left many fans with the apprehension of their new platform. Lots of meme’s were created about their giant new console, but after a while, they all subsided.
The game system is well made, and offers fun for groups of people. After yesterday’s and this morning’s announcement (June 11th, 2013), it seems that Nintendo is still pumping out great games, sequels, and visiting classics.
Today Nintendo Announced the release of Super Smash Bros, Super Mario 3d World, Pikmin 3, Mario Kart 8, The Legend of Zelda: A Link between Worlds, Wind Waker for the 3DS.
The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds appears to be a sequel to A Link to the Past which came out over two decades ago for the Super Nintendo. The game play looks grand and incorporates the classic game very well with only minor differences in details that make it more up to date (For Example: Link’s hair is now not pink, but golden blonde like usual). As a player, you’ll be able to move between walls by incorporating Link’s chalk drawn shadow to get across planes. The game is set to release Holiday’s of 2013. Wind Waker is just a remake with the option of co-op now made available.
Nintendo seems to be releasing a lot of new games and bringing back some great old characters like Donkey Kong and Pikmin.
It seems that most of the games incorporate what the Wii U stands for-playing together. Which is exactly the opposite of what Microsoft is doing with the Xbox One. There’s no raises in gaming prices or fees to play, and as per norm, very friendly. The games they are putting out with in the next year or two look pleasing, fun, and exactly what Gaming should be about-Enjoyment.
One can not but help to smile when they look at the happy variations of games being made available for the 3DS and Wii U. Although their budget was made small for E3, it does leave hope that PAX will be a grand event as well with other interesting releases and game demo’s to test.
