“Pikmin 3” and “New Super Mario Bros. U” announced for the Wii U


Nintendo’s E3 press conference as come to a conclusion.  The event started with a huge bank thanks to the much ancitipated announcement of Pikmin 3, a game fans have been longing for.  While the conference itself may have been short on details about the Wii U hardward, Nintendo made up for it by demoing a TON of games – and a few new trailers.

No question about it, New Super Mario Bros. U will be on the must play list for majority of Wii U owners.  Keeping the 2d-style of New Super Mario Bros. and New Super Mario Bros Wii, Mario’s new adventure is sure to be a major hit for the Wii U – not to mention the anticipated superior graphic upgrade to the franchise.  Check out the brand new trailers for Pikmin 3 and New Super Mario Bros. U, along with a list of announced games, below.


Take a look at the full list of Wii U titles planned to release in the future:

  • Aliens: Colonial Marines
  • Assassin’s Creed III
  • Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition
  • Darksiders II
  • Game & Wario
  • LEGO City: Undercover
  • Mass Effect 3
  • New Super Mario Bros. U
  • Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge
  • Nintendo Land
  • Pikmin 3
  • Project P-100
  • Rayman Legends
  • Scribblenauts Unlimited
  • SiNG
  • Tank! Tank! Tank!
  • Tekken Tag Tournament 2
  •  Trine 2: Director’s Cut
  • Wii Fit U
  • Wii U Panorama View
  • ZombiU

Of course, it is easy to start drawing conclusions regarding the Wii U’s power based off the games shown above, but the pitfall is with games such as Wii Sports Resort, it makes the system’s graphical muscle hard to deduce.  Pikmin 3 certainly looked fantastic, though — light years more detailed, and with much more varied, fluid animation than previous Pikmin games.
