Nintendo E3 ’09 press conference recap


Nintendo at E3 2009 has shown off it’s new line up of Wii and DS titles, even though the reaction was mixed from fans, and the gaming community in total, Nintendo did manage to surprise with some new and interesting games that will most likely be big hits with both the core and casual gamers.
The very first thing shown by Nintendo was unsurprisingly a Mario title however the game itself was a surprise, New Super Mario Bros Wii. The title is a 2D sidescroller in the same format as any classic mario game, but the main draw is that up to four players can play at the same time creating a both cooperative and competitive experience. The big N also announced Wii Fit Plus, a game that will expand the current Wii Fit experience with several new features. Nintendo also showed off Wii motion plus with Wii sports Resort, the game looks to be aimed for the casual audience like the original.

Nintendo put plenty of time into the DS as well during the conference. Several new games were announced for the handheld including Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s inside story, an RPG similar to partners in time. Also announced were Golden Sun DS, COP, and Mario Vs. Donkey Kong: Minis march again. The DS had overall plenty things announced and shown.


Also making a first appearance, the Wii vitality sensor was shown. Although little details were given about the new device, Iwata announced that it will measure body signs like heart rate, and blood pressure. The sensor will most likely be used with Wii Fit to create an expanded measurement of players health. However some rumors are saying the vitality sensor can be used with other games that will react to signs possibly changing the game if the player gets nervous. Overall however not much was outlined on this peripheral.


There are two more games that Nintendo announced that caught many off guard. The first game being Mario Galaxy 2, a direct sequel to the original that was released in 2007. The game features new levels, power ups, and several other features. Also announced was Metroid: Other M, little details were given about this game, but from the video shown it looks like a much more story based game than other Metroid games.
