ALL Nintendo Direct E3 2013

In mere minutes, Nintendo will start their special Nintendo Direct brodcast on E3 2013. We'll be here with a brief summary of the broadcast.

16:40: And that's it, for now. Iwata says goodbye and asks the fans to view some more videos on the Nintendo website.

16:38: Both titles will become available in 2014. Guess we'll have to wait a little more.

16:36: Guess who's also joining? MegaMan, and he's getting pulverised by the Nintendo crowd. Luckily he'll have some robot powers to tap into. Good luck fighting Guts Man, Fire Man and many others Mario!

16:35: Indeed! both a Nintendo 3DS and a Wii U version of Super Smash Brothers are shown. Pikachu, Mario, Link, Samus, Pit, DK, Fox, Villager (from Animal Crossing), Balloon Kid, Kirby, they're all here again.

16:34: Iwata claims one more game to show, but instead we're getting multiple franchises. This could only mean one thing... Super Smash Bros!

16:32: On to Monolith Software. Giant mechwarriors, futuristic cities and giant creatures running around in a huge open world on Wii U...

16:30: Platinum Games' Bayonetta 2 is shown on screen. For some reason, the first thing mentioned is the new hairstyle of the main character...

16:26: The new game is set for Wii U. We can see DK swim, ride minecarts, jump barrels, climb, all the usual stuff yet in HD (yes, we can see fur...). Also, the game is no longer a plain side-viewn platformer, but moves in different directions.

16:26: A new title... Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze!

16:24: A new trailer on The Wonderful 101 is shown. Iwata explains the gestures on the GamePad to create unique moves.

16:22: Iwata claims the graphics have improved a lot. The Tingle Tuner (originally available by linking your GBA to your GameCube) is updated to the "Tingle Bottle", allowing you to post messages to Miiverse and connect to other players. The game is currently set for a release this October.

16:20: And we're back to classics: The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD on Wii U. A new trailer is shown on the improved version.

16:19: The eShop is going to see some gems as well, Iwata claims. Ducktales, Mutant Mudds, Shovel Knight, Spin the Bottle, Bumpie's Party, A World of Keflings, and much more.

16:16: Titles in the works: Assassins Creed (Wii U), Batman: Arkam Origins (Wii U and 3DS), Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Disney Infinity (Wii U), Just Dance 2014 (Wii U), Rayman Legends (Wii U and 3DS), Scribblenauts Unmasked (Wii U and 3DS), Disney's Planes (Wii U), Shin Megami Tensei IV (3DS), Skylanders: SWAP Force (3DS), Splinter Cell: Blacklist (Wii U), Sonic Lost World (Wii U and 3DS), Watch Dogs (Wii U)

16:15: We're moving to third party support.

16:14: Iwata is proud of the Nintendo community. All the beautiful pictures created on Miiverse lately made him wonder: what if we supplied the community with actual tools for drawing? And hence we're moving on to Art Academy for Wii U, starting with adding some of the features to MiiVerse.

16:13: Wii Fit U is delayed unfortunately... Winter 2013 it is.

16:12: On to the next revival of a franchise: Wii Party U. The game will feature more minigames (looking similar to Mario Party), including games you play together on a single Wii U GamePad.

16:11: Mario Kart 8 will be available from Spring 2014.

16:09: Bikes are returning, as well as some kind of anti-gravity-machines that appear to be able to ride against the walls or the ceiling. Also the gliders are back.

16:08: Here we go: a new Mario Kart title! Mario Kart 8 for Wii U.

16:06: Multiplayer support confirmed in both co-op or competitive modes. Cat-Mario can climb walls and scratch enemies using his claws. The game is set for December 2013.

16:05: A trailer of a new (3DS) Mario game is shown: Super Mario 3DWorld. Luigi, Peach and Toad are also playable characters (each with their own powers. Mario seems to have acquired a new suit: cat-Mario.

16:03: Iwata explains some of the new features in Pokemon X and Y. Both games will launch on October 12, 2013.

16:00: The broadcast has started. Be sure to follow it live here, or read up on this page on what happened thus far.
