E3 2009: Nintendo

After last year's E3 debacle, will Nintendo bring the heavy hitters this year or will they give us more of the same casual shtick? Well, don't get your hopes too high, but they did give us some games to make you not sell off your Wii just yet.

(still being updated as videos become available)

-Metroid: Other M looks to have a little bit of everything. There is some 2D side scrolling, as well as 3rd and 1st person action. Metroid: Other M will be out in 2010.

-Did you like Super Mario Galaxy? Well, here is the same game with Yoshi. Super Mario Galaxy 2 will be a 2010 release.

-Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story throws the lovable plumbers inside their nemesis, running around inside Bowser as his actions cause changes to the environment for the Mario brothers. Look for it this Fall on the DS.

-Remember that bleh Mario Vs. Donkey Kong: March Of The Minis game? It has a sequel. Mario Vs. Donkey Kong: Minis March Again. It will be released as a downloadable game on the DSi on June 8.

-Dead Space: Extraction takes place before the first game and is a 1st person shooter on rails.

-Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days is for the DS. You play as Roxas.

-Facebook is everywhere now. Add the DSi to places where you can interact with Facebook.

-Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles is somewhat of a follow up to Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles. Another rail shooter in the Resident Evil universe.

-Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers. That name isn't long enough. Coming to the Wii.

-MORE WII FIT! Wii Fit Plus.

-New Super Mario Bros. is basically the DS game moved to the Wii. This time, there is 4-player co-op. Whoopie! You can play as Mario, Luigi, and two different colored Toads. Hopefully there are other characters to select. Coming out during holiday season 2009.

-Golden Sun makes its way onto the DS.

-The Conduit...another game I will not be purchasing for the Wii.

-Wii Sports Resort for the second E3 in a row. Good job, Nintendo.
