While Nintendo will be showing off several Wii U games at E3, including Super Smash Bros U, company president Satoru Iwata confirmed in a recent Q&A that they’ll unveil a bunch of brand new Wii U games to E3 as well.
Iwata did not go into specifics as to what those Wii U games might be, he only said that the games are “designed to introduce players to the value of the Wii U GamePad”. Some of the rumored Wii U games for E3 include a new Zelda and Metroid game.
He added that all of the new Wii U games are developed in-house at Nintendo with their first party teams, and all of them are overseen by Shigeru Miyamoto. Iwata said that the Wii U titles at E3 will represent games that are “near completion” and games that are also “in early development”.
Hopefully Nintendo will have some amazing titles that can generate some buzz about the Wii U. It’s not longer enough to make good games for current Wii U owners. Because of the state of the Wii U, the games have to attract new buyers to the system as well. We’re sure the upcoming Mario Kart 8 will do just that, and hopefully, so will the games announced at E3.
Recently, there have been rumors of a redesigned Wii U at E3, but Nintendo quickly squashed those rumors.
