For more information from E3 2015, check out our other features: Bethesda conference, Microsoft Conference, Electronic Arts conference, Ubisoft conference, Sony conference, Square Enix conference.

Starfox Zero:

After many years, we’ll finally be getting a new Starfox game from Nintendo. “we want people to play like they’re flying a real plane”, WiiU gamepad will allow an extra level of immersion. Cockpit view too. There’s only one button to shoot all weapons, so let’s you use one button to flip, one for a U-turn and one to transform into a walker. There are different vehicles that you can use throughout the game as well. Game looks fantastic. 

 

Amiibo’s:

Turbo-charged Donkey Kong and his barrel blaster vehicle, Hammer-Slam Bowser and his Clown Cruiser. At the base, you can switch between Amiibo and Skylanders.

Zelda Tri-Force Heroes: 

They want to focus on co-op and multiplayer features. Will be out for the 3DS. The totem mechanic announced that three players can jump on each other’s shoulders to finish tougher puzzles. For single player, there will be characters to help you out with that. It looks really fun.

Hyrule Warriors:

Now they’re showing off Hyrule Warriors on the 3ds. It will release quarter one of 2016.

Metroid Prime Federation Force:

Also includes Metroid Prime Blast Ball. Available in 2016 on 3ds.

Fire Emblem Fates:

Not much was shown.

Genei Ibun Roku #FE:

yeah, I have no idea. But it’s available in 2016.

Xenoblade Chronicles X:

Available 12/4/15

Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer:

Game will be available this December.

Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival:

An Animal Crossing game that seems part classic board game and Mario Party. Will release Holiday 2015.

Yoshi’s Woolly World:

This game was a blast to play at E3 2014 and it still looks amazing. I can’t wait to add this to my Wii U collection. If you’ve got Amiibo’s, they can be added to the game and your Yoshi style will change to that character. They show off what Mario would look like. Will release on October 16, 2015.

Yo-kai Watch:

An interesting re-imagining of the Pokemon style.

Mario and Luigi: Paper Jam:

This looks to be a mash up of regular 3D Mario and Papa Mario. Coming to 3DS Holiday 2015.

Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash:

Coming to Wii U Holiday 2016.

Super Mario Maker:

This still looks SO GOOD. Unfortunately, I don’t have any creativity. It will release September 11, 2015.

Our impressions:

The Nintendo Digital Showcase ends with an amazing montage celebrating thirty years of Mario. Despite all the great games Nintendo showcased, this was honestly the highlight of the show for me.
