During a special Wii U Direct that was broadcast today, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata bombarded us with official announcements for upcoming Wii U titles. Of these announcements were a few that didn't have any kind of footage as of yet, but are still exciting nonetheless.
First up, Nintendo officially announced a new 3D Super Mario game for Wii U that they have in development. The Nintendo EAD Tokyo Software Development team that brought us Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 for Wii and Super Mario 3D Land for 3DS will be working on this new Super Mario experience as well. And while there was no footage to show of this new Mario during the Wii U Direct, nor were we given a release window of any kind, Iwata assured us that the game will be playable at this year's E3.
On the topic of Mario, Nintendo also announced their plans for an official Mario Kart title in development for Wii U. Not much was revealed of this upcoming kart racer, but Iwata did say that, like the new Super Mario game, Mario Kart Wii U (not the official title) will be in playable form this Summer at E3.
Iwata turned the floor over to Eiji Aonuma to give us some official details regarding the much-anticipated Wii U Legend of Zelda title. Much like the above announcements, this new Zelda game has zero footage at the moment, with no release date in sight, as the game is still in early development stages (they need time after Skyward Sword, so be patient!).
Aonuma did provide some interesting insight of what to expect from Link's new adventure, however:
Which of these games are you most looking forward to?
