Last year, Nintendo disappointed many lifelong fans with a bland and predicatable showing for E3 2008. This year, they promised to bring things to the table that would get everyone excited, old fans and new.


Nintendo Brings Out the Big Ones

It is safe to say that Nintendo did not disappoint twice in a row. Their press conference both confounded and excited everyone to no end. The most puzzling moment came when Nintendo showcased the Wii Vitality Sensor, a device that you clip to your finger to have your heart beat read. No games were announced for the periperal, but many assumed that the first to use it would be the new Wii Fit Plus that will be coming out soon.


Aside from Wii Fit Plus, Nintendo went game crazy and focused their E3 efforts on all the amazing games that were coming out for all their systems. Not one, but two new and true Mario games were announced, including Super Mario Galaxy 2 and New Super Mario Bros. Wii, which will feature four-player multi-player madness. There is also a new Mario RPG for the DS, called Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story, where our heroes will be transversing along the innards of King Koopa.


For the DS, there is also Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days, a new Golden Sun RPG coming and Style Savvy, a popular girl's game in Japan where you run a boutique and can shop at your friend's stores via wi-fi. Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky was revealed and more information on The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks was given. If you hated the phantoms in the main temple of Phantom Hourglass, worry no more! This time, they are on your side and you will be able to control where they go by drawing lines with your stylus.


If you have been itching for new WarioWare, rejoice now as WarioWare: DIY was revealed during E3. As the name suggests, in DIY, you do-it-yourself and make your own mini-games that you can play with your friends and family. And if you play a lot of games with your friends and family, you will be excited to know that the soon to be released Wii Sport Resort will feature even more games than previously announced. Sky Diving, Basketball, Ping Pong, Kayaking, BMX Biking, and Archery all have been added.


Finally, for serious Nintendo fans, a sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess for the Wii has been teased for 2011. Coming sooner, however, are great games like Sin and Punishment 2, a fast paced rail shooter and Monado: Beginning of the World, a JRPG game for the Wii. The biggest announcement that kept everyone talking long after the press conference, however, was the announcement for Metroid: Other M, a new Metroid game for the Wii being worked on by Team Ninja of Ninja Gaiden fame. The new Metroid game will feature first person and third person action and fantastic graphics and voice acting. Nintendo teased that we may finally get to hear the voice of Samus.


Even with all these great announcements, people are still hoping that Nintendo may announce Pikmin 3 and Kid Icarus during the Tokyo Game Show later this fall. Retro Studios, who worked with Nintendo on the Metroid Prime series, is secretly working on something else and people are dying to know what it is. However, Nintendo did give out some more information after their press conference, including the fact that the Wii and DSi will have new colors, black and red, and that the remake of Pokemon Gold/Silver will come with a pedometer that you can clip on your belt as you walk in real life to help your pokemons in game gain experience.


Are you excited yet? E3 Coverage continues with Sony tomorrow!
