just got home from work, kind of bummed I didn't get to watch the gafmeltdowns live in real time, but good lord did that direct deliver.

wonderful 101 looks fantastic, bayo 2 talk sounds very promising

X was mindblowingly amazing

SMTxFE I dont even know what to say, completely out of left field and completely awesome.

a tuned up, HD remake of WW while they work on a franchise reboot of zelda for Wii-U

smash 4 info at e3 along with playable mario kart U and 3D mario

awesome stuff.

No way they launch Mario 3D and Mario Kart this year, the same year. Probably just Wind Waker, Mario Kart and something else for this holiday. Zelda is probably 2 holidays out. I wonder where they fit in Mario and Smash next year?

Yeah. The downside to all these announcements is that they'll be stretched through 2014.

If Wind Waker HD sells, we could get Sunshine HD before Universe.

Well, if we're going by how they handled it on the Wii SMG was released late 2007 while MKWii came out early 2008

Oh man, I still can't believe how cool this Direct was.

Except for the party game, I want every single one of those titles. Guess the Wonderful 101 will be slated for the summer/fall, but no worries.

I'm not seeing Smash until early 2015. Maybe with Bamco helping out the dev cycle will be shortened, but Smash Bros. games are massive undertakings. Plus, the fact that nothing playable for it will be at E3 makes me think Sakurai will still be working on it into 2014.

Also, I think it'd be kinda neat if this Yoshi game took place in the same universe as Kirby's Epic Yarn. With Prince Fluff and Yin-Yarn maybe showing up. It'd' be nice to make that yarn aesthetic into its own world, it looks gorgeous. Here's hoping Fluff gets to star in his own game someday.

I see both coming out this year. Next holiday can have X, Smash Bros, Bayonetta, and whatever else is announced this year and next year.

Well they did say a 3rd party direct would come right? I'm not expecting a bunch of megatons, but I do suspect Japanese support is going to be better than it looks now (like with today's news I feel pretty good about Persona 5 coming alongside PS3).

Yup. Panic mode Nintendo is the best Nintendo. Simply awesome! :D

How many times did You say "wow" out loud? Probably 5 times for me, maybe more.

My favorites were Wind Waker remake, Monolith X, and off TV WiiU Virtual Console with 0.99€ discounted price for titles already bought on Wii VC.

This was one of the best gaming related presentations I've seen in a while and I've never seen Nintendo (or probably any other console manufacturer) be so direct about their future plans. Loved how Iwata adressed almost every complaint people have had about WiiU one by one.

After this Direct and Nintendo's new approach according to Iwata, I'm much more interested in what their other collaborations will be.

So far we got;

Nintendo x Team Ninja = Metroid Other M
Pokémon x Nobunaga's Ambition = Pokémon Conquest (Nintendo/Tecmo-Koei)
Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem = ? (Intelligent Systems/Atlus)

Ninja Gaiden 3 RE (Tecmo-Koei, Nintendo)
Lego City Undercover (TT Fusion, Nintendo)
SiNG Party (Freestyle Games, Nintendo)
The Wonderful 101 (Platinum Games, Nintendo)
Bayonetta 2 (Platinum Games, Nintendo)
Smash Bros. 4 (Namco Bandai, Nintendo)

And apparantly there are more "collaborations" coming. Can't wait which unlikely third party will team up next with Nintendo.

I really like how he addressed their stumbles/f'ups as well. He basically puts it out bluntly that early adopters will have to wait until March before it really kicks off. Disappointing, but at least honest.

I doubt the presentation will have a large impact on overall sales for February-March, but as soon as these titles start rolling out it should pick up.

I'm guessing this is what the rest of the year looks like from Nintendo:

- Game & Wario
- Pikmin 3
- Wii Fit U
- Lego City Stories: Undercover
- Wii Party U
- The Wonderful 101
- The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker Reborn
- Yoshi's Epic Yarn
- Mario Kart U

2014 I bet is when we see Mario, Bayonetta, Donkey Kong, and Metroid.

They did the exact same thing with the 3DS in its first year with OOT remake in the summer and SM3DL and MK7 a month apart during the holiday season. Im not sure what's so unbelievable

E3 this year is going to be epic. Playable 3D Mario, Smash Bros, Mario Kart, Wind Waker HD and Yoshi from Nintendo, as well as Microsoft and Sony likely unveiling their new consoles.

My body will never be ready for all that.

It was pretty cool how Iwata acknowledged that Mario and Mario Kart being developed aren't "surprising" so he went and announced some real shockers.
