Nintendo Press Conference E3 Day 2

The Nintendo Press Conference started with a video package of Shigeru Miyamoto "Godfather of Nintendo" being followed by Pikmin. Which in turned followed him onto the stage and were playing with the audience. After the play it was revealed that Pikmin 3 would be available on the Wii U.

Reggie Fils-Aime was called about by Mr.Miyamoto, who then went on to say there will be a total of 23 Wii U. Reggie also mention  that Netflix, Hulu, Youtube and Amazon Instant Video were confirmed for the Wii U. Mr. Fils-Aime also confirmed that the Wii U will be able to use two Gamepads simultaneously.
They then showed a video package of Super Mario Bros U.  Of course the we all new there would be a Mario game on the Wii U but just a rehash of the original Mario Brothers? with just a few changes?
To me it does not help Nintendo show the graphics power of the machine. Until they showed the next game. Batman Arkham City:Armored Edition. That's right the Wii U is getting the Caped Crusader and now it makes sense to show this game. Why you may ask? Well the game was created on the Unreal Engine. This tells developers who were curious as to what the Wii U can handle well this engine is the engine to do it with. Along with that Batman Arkham City:A.E also has a few perks using the touchscreen on the gamepad. There is a B.A.T mode made for precision use of the Batarang and other of Batman's utilities.
Another title coming for the WiiU is Scribblenauts Unlimited. The game is scheduled for Multiplayer game-play and will be in HD. Anyone who loves scribblenauts will surely love this game. Here are a list of games also coming to the Wii U.

Darksiders 2                         Mass Effect 3
Tekken Tag 2                        Tank,Tank,Tank
Trine 2 Director's cut           Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge
Aliens: Colonial Marines     Wii Fit U
Assassin's Creed III               Rayman Legends

That is just a few of the games coming to the Wii U. It is interesting to note that both Darksiders 2 and Assassin's Creed come out around the same time so it may give you an idea that the system should have a early fall release perhaps?? pre-holiday is my guess.
They also showed Sing which is a party karaoke game where you do not have to look at the tv screen but use the gamepad for the lyrics and stare at your friends as you perform. This looks like the party game to look out for.
Nintendo then briefly switched to the 3DS. The three titles yes only three titles were announced according to Nintendo because of time. The first game was Super Mario Bros. 2 followed by Paper Mario Sticker, Paper Mario is one of my favorite games. It has always reminded me of my favorite role playing games, Super Mario Bros.RPG: Legends of the Seven Stars. They are just fun games that you never tire of. Paper Mario has the same principle but at the same time you collect stickers to use throughout the game. The last game announced was Luigi's Mansion 2. The game play shown focused on the multi-player where there were four ghost catchers and 1 ghost. Looked like fun. The rest of the titles are suppose to be announced on their E3 website.

Back for the Wii U they showed Lego City:Undercover this looks like GTA in lego form. This looks great and is sure to be a hit for all ages. I like how the lego people are voiced and you are trying to solve crimes.
Ubisoft came out to show Just Dance 4 and how you can change the choreography using the gamepad to mix things up for other players.
The last game shown was Nintendo Land. can I call this a game or more of a hub of mini-games for you and your Mii and the Mii-verse. Looked interesting but they should have shown off more of the games in it. Well that was Nintendo. I know this is a couple days late but I had all the other posts from day 1 to get through.
