Nintendo Announces 3DS and Wii U Games at E3 2013

Nintendo Announces 3DS and Wii U Games at E3 2013

Nintendo has announced exclusive list of its Wii U and 3DS games to come this year and next year. Microsoft’s Xbox One and Sony’s Playstation 4 may have some competition on their hands. And this rivalry comes from none other than gaming giant and trendsetter Nintendo.  But the whole thing is more than a year away. All the wonderful games will come spilling out in 2014 which is still a long way off. The Wii U won’t back out of the arena. There is a virtual cornucopia of good games that await the eager fans. These include: Mario Kart and Smash Bros; The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker and Donkey Kong Country; Assassin Creed 4: Black Flag and Batman Arkham Origins etc. There are some who don’t have access to the Wii U gaming facility, which will be somewhat of a snag along the way. However, Nintendo has succeeded in letting the world know that it is trying to reach the level of the big boys (that is Microsoft and Sony). The news was aired at the E3 event.

As for the games they have plenty of special effects and cool graphic details to last the gamers their leisure time. The Super Mario World 3D for example will have all the usual characters such as Luigi and Princess Peach. There is even a feline transformation feature that allows characters to turn into cats that can perform various funny antics much to the amusement of the players. Pimkin 3 and Bayonetta are stars in the cast of gorgeous games in store for aficionados. Nintendo 3DS games to come includes The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds; Yoshi’s New Island; Mario & Luigi: Dream Team. However, at present, Sony and Microsoft dominate the market, though how long this will remain in the future is a matter of sheer conjecture. While both the giants unveiled their respective Xbox One and Playstation 4 at the E3 event, Nintendo also announced its games whose arrival is a year from today. There were some who were impatient and hence disappointed by Nintendo’s procrastination, but many others were only too glad that something new and exciting lay in the future.

The fact that all these games will be displayed on theWii U is a solid reason to buy one. Nintendo has been wrestling with the fine-tuning of its device since winter of last year. Since the struggle to come up with the hardware was so long in the pipeline, Nintendo is cautious about its declarations as was evident from the E3 event. The new editions of older games are just a few of the ploys. Then there is the software and it matters too since the hardware is useless without it. The future will tell which way the winds of Nintendo’s kismet blow. For now it is in a subdued mood.

Sony’s PlayStation Now Strategy: Everything Old Is New Again

Though videogames can be massive sellers (witness those billion-dollar debuts last fall for Grand Theft Auto V and Call of Duty: Ghosts), every title faces rapid obsolescence, at least in gamers’ eyes. Three years after hitting the shelves, even the hottest titles can look woefully quaint compared to the latest stuff. That creates a wildly different set of economic realities compared to Hollywood, where so much money is ma ...

But in some cases, like a filing over the 2013 shooter Aliens: Colonial Marines, the suit's terms boiled down to little more than "the game stinks." That's what happened when two ...

How ‘Last Blockbuster Syndrome’ dooms empires like Nintendo

For years, Nintendo has believed it could reject smartphone and tablet apps, yet still flourish. The reason for this delusion is familiar — it's the toxic Last Blockbuster Syndrome that doomed the consumer electronics divisions of Motorola in 2004 and Nokia in 2007. Often at the start of a massive trend shift in consumer electronics, dominant dinosaurs get one massive hit built on a nearly obsolete paradigm, and that allows them to ...
