Latest Nintendo Updates

Earlier today, Nintendo showed the newest trailer for Pokémon X and Y, which revealed the new Fairy type and two new Pokémon to add to the 6th gen roster.

The trailer's gameplay showed the new male trainer running around different cities and areas. Battles between Pokémon old and new were shown, and that includes the two newest creatures: Noivern (left) and Vivillon (right).

With their E3 Nintendo Direct concluded, Nintendo has made a lot of announcements and released tons of news, so thankfully, they've made one big website to catalog each of their upcoming games for Wii U and 3DS. If you missed anything during the Direct on upcoming titles like Super Smash Bros., Super Mario World 3D, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, or Pikmin 3, don't worry! There's a lot of information on e3.nintendo.com, with all the new trailers and screenshots available. Alternatively, just scroll down Gamnesia's homepage!

UPDATE: Check inside for a wicked gallery and both videos!

During their Nintendo Direct today, Nintendo finally unveiled the hugely anticipated Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS titles. Unlike with Brawl, this reveal came real game play footage, and it's definitely worth getting excited over. The trailer confirmed two new characters and several new stages for the new Super Smash Bros.

The confirmed new characters are Villager, from Animal Crossing, and Megaman. Along with Megaman comes a new stage which appears to be Dr. Wily's Castle. Many other new stages were announced as well: the train from The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, Skyloft from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, a Nintendogs stage of some kind, a boxing ring from Punch Out!, a seemingly-new Animal Crossing stage, and a Super Mario 3D Land-inspired stage. While this isn't a new stage, we can confirm that Battlefield will be making a return as well. Some stages or characters may be exclusive to the 3DS or Wii U versions of the game, but that's not 100% confirmed as of yet.

The 3DS version of the game also features a slightly modified art style, with black outlines surrounding its characters.

Nintendo has confirmed that Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS will be releasing in the year 2014. Make sure you head past the jump to check out Super Smash Bros.'s first ever trailer!

UPDATED... AGAIN: There are now a slew of images after the jump!

UPDATED: The trailer can now be viewed beyond the jump! Take a look!

At their Nintendo Direct today, Nintendo announced Super Mario 3D World, the first 3D Mario game for Wii U. The game looks very similar to Super Mario 3D Land and seems to combine 2D and 3D elements. Players can use the GamePad’s touchscreen to influence the world around them, including puzzles and enemies.

There are four playable characters in the game: Mario, Luigi, Blue Toad, and, for the first time in a 3D Mario game, Princess Peach. Yes, Peach is playable! In addition, each character has unique abilities. Luigi can jump higher, Toad can run faster, and Peach can float for a limited amount of time.

Additionally, a new power-up has been announced: Cat Mario. Cat Mario will be able to climb walls and scratch enemies with his claws; visually, it is similar to the cat suit from Wii Music.

Super Mario 3D World is coming in December; are you pumped?

UPDATED: There are a ton of shiny, new images beyond the jump! Defy gravity and race to the finish, after the jump!

So, there was another contender for Best (expected) Game to come out of this nifty E3 presentation. And it is Mario Kart 8, for Wii U. Hear me out, guys, the game is looking really good. No, just see for yourselves. The game includes mechanics seen in Mario Kart 7, such as the shifting vehicles. You can now shift to a hover vehicle à la F-Zero to boost onto shifting tracks, like loops and all kinds of non-gravitational environments.

The characters and environments look very sharp. Although the whimsical mood is one returning from the post-N64 games, there is also a return to the realism seen in Mario Kart 64. We can also expect the returning classic tracks, like Piranha Plant Slide from the 3DS game. How do you find the game? Mario Kart 8 is due to launch in Spring 2014.

Today, Nintendo has revealed the previously unannounced title Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze for the Wii U and eShop, due later this year. It is likely developed by Retro, but ultimately this is yet to be confirmed. It brings back the much-praised dynamic action of the Wii with highly updated graphics. In one screencap, Iwata comments on the highly detailed fur of big ol' DK. No date was yet announced, but the game looks pretty advanced into its development.

Story has been supplied: a tribe of vikings from the North have invaded the DK islands and brought about an ice storm. Donkey, Diddy and returning cousin Dixie Kong will be making a return to put a stop to the cold invasion. Dixie's signature pony-tail flutter makes a come-back, allowing the other player to soar for long durations. Jump inside for a trailer and gallery.

UPDATE: The E3 trailer is now available. Watch after the jump!

In the Nintendo Direct shown today, more information about The Wonderful 101 was revealed. Taking center stage for this game was the newly unveiled multiplayer, which will support five players for simultaneous co-operative play. Each player will control their very own squad of superheroes in this mode, which will be sure to add up to some crazy fun. Nintendo also revealed that more information would be released in the future via a The Wonderful 101-themed Nintendo Direct.

During Nintendo's E3 Direct today, we got a nice look at some of the games that are coming for the Wii U and 3DS, including titles like Assassin's Creed IV, Batman Arkham Origins, Scribblenauts and a lot more. Needless to say I'm very excited for a lot of these titles, especially the new Assassin's Creed and Watch Dogs. It would have been nice if we got a new Need for Speed game on the Wii U, but everybody knows those are murky waters. A man can hope.

Hit the jump to get a look at what's coming.

Update: Check out Wii U's Art Academy's first trailer after the jump!

Art Academy, an art tool with a popular 3DS release, has been announced for Wii U. Unfortunately, it will be a long time before this game is released, as it appears to still be in its early stages, but Nintendo had one other exciting art-related announcement as well. Miiverse, Wii U's online community service, will be getting several tools from Art Academy to allow for more interesting user-generated content to be created.

Nintendo says they have been looking at all the pictures generated on Miiverse and are very impressed, so they want to give users more tools to make more complex and beautiful art. This feature will be arriving on Miiverse this summer.

UPDATED: A new trailer is now available after the jump! Take a look!

Pokémon X and Pokémon Y are coming to a 3DS near you this fall, with a worldwide release date of October 12, 2013.

In addition to the release date news, we now officially know that there is an 18th Pokémon type. That’s right, there’s a new type! Fairy type Pokémon include the new Eeveeloution Sylveon, as well as old Pokémon such as Jigglypuff and Marill.

Stay tuned for more Pokémon news!

As promised, after the conclusion of their E3 Direct, Nintendo posted on its E3 website about Best Buy's Nintendo Experience. The event, which will allow gamers to experience recently revealed games, is set to take place this Wednesday and Saturday, and we now know which games can be demoed!

Nintendo Experience attendees can look forward to playing Super Mario 3D World, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, Mario Kart 8, and Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze! You'll also be able to get your hands on some mysterious "Luigi loot", whatever that is; hopefully it's neat?

Will you be going to your local Nintendo Experience?

Well, that's all folks! Day 1 of Gamnesia's E3 2013 coverage has come to a close with the conclusion of Sony's presser. The staff is now working hard to improve the many posts made today; pictures and trailers are being updated, and additional content is being added by the minute.

Day 1 featured four major press conferences, all with a combined abundance of news. Overwhelmed by the backlog of news here at Gamnesia? Fear not, for within this article you can find the headlines and links to every news post from Microsoft, EA, Ubisoft, and Sony's press conferences.

Update: We have the footage!

As per tradition, Ubisoft has once more debuted a lengthy live gameplay demo of the latest Assassin's Creed game to spice up the Sony E3 press conference - and this time we got to see Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag running on the PlayStation 4.

The visuals are noticeably stronger than those of III, with what appears to be revamped stealth and realistically moving foliage that reacts to protagonist Kenway's touch. Perhaps most interesting is the quick-moving variation of environment afforded by the island setting; sunset-lit beach, drunken pirate party, dense jungle, burning port town and high seas are all markedly different... and yet flow between each other almost seamlessly.

Unfortunately, the live stage demo suffered from some severe lagging, and we do not yet know the reasoning for it. The demo ended abruptly with some severe glitching, played over by orchestral "pirate music" fanfare.

Stay tuned as we update with the footage.

Update: the trailer is available after the jump, thanks to IGN!

Man, Watch Dogs is everywhere today!

The Sony conference showed off an exclusive demo of the game on the PlayStation 4. New driving mechanics were flaunted for the first time. Watching your character maneuver between traffic to escape the watchful eyes of a helicopter is exhilarating.

In addition, we also saw new ways you can hack the system. The player took control of a camera in a skyscraper, viewing an entire discussion between two evil-doers. Who knows what else that small smartphone can do?

Stay tuned as more details emerge on this exciting title!
