Nintendo will be showing off games "for the people" later this year, according to Nintendo of America's Reggie Fils Aime.
Wow, I am shocked! Hardly anything we didn't already know. A couple. That is not going to cut it Nintendo. What are they doing? I want the Wii U to succeed, but this is getting really desperate now.
They clearly stated in the begginning of the direct that this was just to show the games coming in the next 2-3 months. They will have another conference during E3 week where they will show future releases and all the games they announced in January (3D mario, smash bros, wind waker HD, monolith's RPG, Bayonetta 2, etc.)
It still not going to be enough. They need third party.
@mika They have plenty of 3rd party. Ubi warner games square namco etc.
So... I'm guessing you knew about the Sega announcements? Or Super Luigi U's price? Or Wonderful 101's release date? Come on, the big announcements are already slated for the E3 Directs. Calm down. @Axonometri below Why would they show something to excite fans before E3? It was announced eons ago that Nintendo was going to have E3 Nintendo Direct conferences. Obviously that's where the bigger announcements will be.
I think my worry is warranted. They should have shown something more to excite fans now. A lot of attention is going to be directed to two other places at E3. There should have been more now.
More like this year is about the games they don't have.
Actions speak louder than words! Yet more piss weak watered down gravy courtesy of Reggie Fils Aime!
Wait so what the hell were people expecting from this Nintendo Direct when Nintendo specifically stated that they would be showcasing Spring/Summer releases? Although the Sonic announcement was a bit of a surprise. They also said that they'll be showing their unnannounced games at E3 time. Well it is a lot easier to kick a system while it's down so I don't expect people to quit bashing Vita and Wii U until E3 rolls around and they show what upcoming games they have.
Glad to see there's still some gamers with a bit of intelligence. and arent complete bias ass wholes. Well said+
more people need to sadly read
I thought when I clicked on the article I would have seen a list or a couple paragraphs talking about new games, boy I was in for one hell of a surprise. No list or mention of a new game/s just 4 sentences of OLD NEWS, of course we no about the E3 thing, of course we know there are going to be Nintendo Directs. I voted this site down
they actually showed good amount of games the are only coming to wiiu. only 1 multiplatform if im not mistaken and it even had excusive miiverse and gamepad functions. and it's not even the e3 direct. yes looking like the year of games for sure.
I love the sound of that.
Time to show and prove...I mean, the idea of a Games Console that plays games does seem like a foreign concept nowadays.

This is good news for Nintendo fans, but will it be enough to increase sales?
