E3 2011: Nintendo Press Conference Highlights!

Nintendo's Press Conference has just ended and left me totally confused. Yes, they revealed their new console called Wii U but as the Press Conference ended i was left scratching my head. They went into detail on what the Wii U controller can do and It's pretty impressive but ended there. We don't know anything else on about the console's specs and how strong it really is. What we do know is Nintendo is going hardcore with the announcement of third-party support for the Wii U. Check the highlights now! - Zelda 25th Anniversary announcing many info about Zelda games for this year.

- Mario Kart for the Nintendo 3DS was revealed with a gameplay trailer featuring water and air races.

- Wii U will have significant third-party support.

Nintendo's Press Conference was short but sweet. Wii took a back seat this time and it was all about the 3DS and the new console, the Wii U. Now the 3DS news are pretty cool but the big announcement is the name of the new console and it's controller. The name, Wii U was a shocker. I don't like the name since they retained the Wii's name into the new console. Whatever their reason, i was expecting a new console with a new identity. The console was never revealed and i have no idea why. The look is obviously not final and they never went into detail about the console but with third-party titles like Arkham City or Ninja Gaiden 3 heading to Wii U shows that it's definitely a strong system.

They want you to wrap your head on the possibilities of what the controller can provide for third-party game developers. What developers can do with those features is yet to be seen. The Wii U is still coming next year but i feel that Nintendo should have given at least an additional 30 minutes to further explain the power of the system and what to look forward to on the Wii U. I watched the stream excited for the new console reveal and left with more questions. What do you guys think about Nintendo's Press Conference?
