E3 2014: Nintendo Digital Event - Zelda Wii U, Captain Toad, Bayonetta 2, Super Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS
Nintendo was the last to show their goods and even though they didn't have a live press conference, they announced a hefty amount of titles that would help the struggling Wii U. Is it enough to get people excited? It's hard to tell but it's clear they are banking on Super Smash Bros and Bayonetta 2 to end the Wii U's 2014 on a high note. But as we look forward, 2015 looks bright for the Japanese company. Have a look at what they announced below.

- Each Amiibo figure has chips that can store data and interact with compatible games. Games announced that will be compatible are Mario Kart 8, Super Smash Bros. Wii U, Captain Toad, Mario vs Donkey Kong, Mario Party 10.
That's Nintendo's E3 presentation - Short but sweet. After the presentation, the Nintendo Treehouse found at E3 kicked off and was there to show off all the games mentioned. There were also a couple of game announcements that wasn't included in the digital event like Mario Party 10, Mario vs Donkey Kong, Professor Layton vs Pheonix Wright release date, and even confirming that Pac-man would be a playable player in the new Super Smash Bros. Very unusual that they announced some of these discreetly right after the presentation, but that's Nintendo for you.
We will give more of our impressions of what was shown in the press conference in a future post. TMG Podcast E3 Special will go LIVE next week once all the dust has cleared to go through each announcement and reveals one by one.
