E3 2009 – Nintendo Press Conference

Comments No Comments


First on day 2 but second of the console giants to take to the stage was Nintendo.

After a poor showing last year what did they have to wow us with in 2009.

In all honesty not a lot. Check out the run down below and decide whether its worth dusting off your Wii and upgrading to the DSi.

Another year another Mario game.

New Super Mario Brothers Wii. The game will feature multiplayer for up to 4 people. Its side scrolling 3D and all the players compete against each other. Players are scored in a similar way to Sonic 2 (Number or coins, enemies killed, lives etc). Expect to see this on the shelves in time for xmas 2009.

Wii Fit Plus. An expansion to the original Wii Fit this adds further exercise and games. It also adds the ability to create workout routines and if like me you only exercise enough to cover a tub of Ben and Jerry’s then it will even tell you how many calories you have burnt. Coming in Autumn 2009 in both stand alone and balance board bundle.

Wii Sports Resort. Utilizing the MotionPlus adapter Wii Sports Resort brings more fun to the Wii.  Each game starts by jumping from a plane and using the Wiimote to control your Mii as they Skydive in to the game. You then have the opportunity to choose from Skateboarding, Archery and Kayaking amongst others. Wii Sports Resort is out July 26th.

Red Steel 2. Red Steel 2 will be a MotionPlus exclusive game meaning that those sword strokes should be matched inch by inch.

Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story. Another side scrolling Mario game this time a RPG and you play in Bowser’s digestive system. Coming to you in the Autumn 2009.

Golden Sun DS. The Golden Sun series of 2D RPG games comes to the DS.

Cop: The Recruit. A shooter for the DS.

Flipnotes Studio. A drawing game for the DSi. Allowing the user for draw, animate and upload to the web.

Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Minis March Again. Out on the 8th of June, look for more news on this soon.

WarioWare. Create your own levels and upload them.

DSi uploads to Facebook. For some unknown reason Nintendo think that DSi photos are so good you will want to share them with your friends on Facebook, all 0.3 megapixel of them.

Wii Vitality Sensor. Yes really, its on of those things the doctor puts on the end of your finger to check your pulse.

Super Mario Galaxy 2 I think you can see I am starting to lose the will to play a Wii. Give me something exciting Nintendo!

Dead Space: Extraction. Wii gets edgy with the dead space franchise. Oh yes its coming.

In addition to Dead Space they also announced The Conduit and Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles.

Finally the big one.

Metriod: Other M. Metriod is back. Oh yes, this is probably the only thing worth getting excited about during the whole show.

Overall after the great Xbox annoucements I can’t help be feel Nintendo are resting on their lawrels and really need to bring something big to the table soon. How about some news on Wii 2?
