[E3 2013] Gamer UK Liveblog: Nintendo Direct

NINTENDO POWER(ers) ACTIVATE!

And so the big E3 conferences come to a close. It has been fun everybody  we have all felt highs and lows. From the diabolical Xbox One pricing and Halo trailer, to the marvellous DRM-free PlayStation 4 announcement with a great price.

Oh and we can’t forget this: 

 

So now it is time for Nintendo to take to the stage… or not as the case may be. This year Nintendo is running a one hour compact Direct stream, which you can watch right here!

Join us soon as we post our opinions and feels towards todays announcements.

After Sony’s conference last night, Nintendo has a lot to beat!

Video streaming by Ustream

Tom June 11, 20132:51 pm

Thanks for watching our E3 Conference coverage!

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:50 pm

And on that note…

Tom June 11, 20132:43 pm

Sorry mate, I just though Gyarados could kick a Jigglypuffs ass.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:42 pm

Of course, did you never go to fairy lessons Tom?

Tom June 11, 20132:42 pm

Trailer we missed trying to connect http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gmywDbnC5oc

Laura Ash June 11, 20132:41 pm

More Pokemon?

Tom June 11, 20132:41 pm

FAIRYS ARE SUPER EFFECT AGAINS DRAGONS…

Tom June 11, 20132:41 pm

Oh lord…. FAIRY TYPE POKEMON. Wat.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:40 pm

I adore Smash Bros, I’ll get it on the 3DS, but I’m not sure I would buy a Wii U for it. It’s a LAN game and I can rely on someone else.

Tom June 11, 20132:40 pm

For those who missed the X and Y Pokemon trailer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gmywDbnC5oc

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:40 pm

I expected more than that, frankly. They needed to do more.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:39 pm

Not a single title we didn’t know was coming, and a lack of those we hoped were

Tom June 11, 20132:39 pm

Short, sweet and exactly what we expected.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:39 pm

Hmrmrmmmmgmfghh that was a let down

Tom June 11, 20132:39 pm

Thats all eveyrone!

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:37 pm

That one has been rumoured for ages, but fuck to the yes

Tom June 11, 20132:36 pm

MEGAMAN.

Tom June 11, 20132:36 pm

NEW CHALLENGER APPROACHING

Tom June 11, 20132:36 pm

Currently just titles Super Smash Bros , coming 2014

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:36 pm

I think I like the 3DS look more

Laura Ash June 11, 20132:36 pm

It looks amazing!

Tom June 11, 20132:35 pm

Normal not cell shaded Smash Bros for Wii U!

Tom June 11, 20132:35 pm

Cell Shaded… 3DS Smash bros

Laura Ash June 11, 20132:35 pm

Smash Bro’s trailer!

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:35 pm

YES YES

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:35 pm

Only one more game? Is it really going to be that short?

Tom June 11, 20132:34 pm

SMAHS BROS!

Tom June 11, 20132:34 pm

X launching 2014

Tom June 11, 20132:34 pm

It looks awesome!

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:33 pm

Although it looks like a bizarre take on Monster Hunter

Tom June 11, 20132:33 pm

Yeah “X”

Tom June 11, 20132:33 pm

Whatever this is, it has Mechs and monsters, and an awesome soundtrack. If this is an existing franchise I need to punch myself.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:33 pm

Oh this is X, I think

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:32 pm

Monolith?

Laura Ash June 11, 20132:32 pm

and costume…

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:32 pm

All five seconds of it

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:31 pm

NEW HAIRSTYLE YEAH. And gameplay!

Laura Ash June 11, 20132:31 pm

Actual gameplay!

Tom June 11, 20132:31 pm

Bayonetta 2 biggest feature, she gets a new haircut.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:30 pm

There’s always room for a little bit more crazy

Tom June 11, 20132:30 pm

First female protagonist of E3 Alex ? ;D

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:29 pm

haha forget that, Bayonetta 2

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:29 pm

@robertflorence: I haven’t seen anyone shoot anybody in this Nintendo Direct. Think about that.

Tom June 11, 20132:29 pm

Donkey King County: Tropical Freeze, launching towards the end of this year!

Tom June 11, 20132:28 pm

Probably Smash Bros, that would be big and its something we know is coming

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:28 pm

Okay I think he was just trolling. Fuck you dorito pope

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:27 pm

Keighley says something else is coming. Something big. This is pretty big already

Tom June 11, 20132:27 pm

New side scrolling Donkey Kong Country title for Wii U

Tom June 11, 20132:26 pm

Donkey Kong!!

Tom June 11, 20132:26 pm

New Announcement!

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:25 pm

Wonderful 101 now, which is a fun looking Pikmin-a-like game, but nothing we haven’t seen.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:25 pm

I like the Miiverse features. No one else could get away with creating that kind of community

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:24 pm

Grandma’s smile is a healing, haha

Tom June 11, 20132:24 pm

October 2013 Release!

Tom June 11, 20132:23 pm

Gameboy Advance link instead links to MiiVerse now

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:23 pm

TINGLE YEAHHH

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:22 pm

If I own a copy on Gamecube, is that still piracy? Actually don’t answer that.

Tom June 11, 20132:22 pm

Yeah but some people dont like to pirate!

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:21 pm

Honestly this is nothing you can’t do with a good PC and a copy of Dolphin. The graphics have barely aged

Tom June 11, 20132:21 pm

Looks very nice!!

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:20 pm

Wind Waker HD update

Tom June 11, 20132:20 pm

Sudden jump forward there! Wind Waker HD trailer!

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:19 pm

Can’t argue they’ve had some amazing deals on there already, but those don’t sell systems.

Tom June 11, 20132:19 pm

Oddworld: New n’ Tasty coming to EShop

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:19 pm

The e-shop has huge promise, if only they’d release some goddamn Gamecube games

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:18 pm

This is the fuck you EA segment, basically

Tom June 11, 20132:17 pm

Sonic Lost World for Wii U and 3DS, something we knew was an exclusive.

Tom June 11, 20132:17 pm

in terms of 3rd party

Tom June 11, 20132:16 pm

Nothing we havnt seen already this E3. Probably better to pay attention to the titles that ARENT coming to Wii U.

Laura Ash June 11, 20132:16 pm

Have I missed much?

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:16 pm

So impatient guys, watch the pretty drawing program

Tom June 11, 20132:15 pm

3rd party releases go!

Curt June 11, 20132:15 pm

I’m at work tom! I can’t watch a stream haha!

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:15 pm

It started 15 mins ago, no Zelda yet.

Tom June 11, 20132:15 pm

No sign of Zelda just yet.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:14 pm

Cat pictures, who doesn’t like those

Tom June 11, 20132:14 pm

Link in your comment Curt

Curt June 11, 20132:14 pm

Have we seen a new Zelda yet?

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:14 pm

Wii Party U will still be out for Christmas despite delays. Now onto the Miiverse, and Art Academy

Tom June 11, 20132:13 pm

Curt all of a sudden!

Curt June 11, 20132:13 pm

Hey guys I’m at work and can’t see anything.

I need to learn how to use Google and find links like this myself:
http://www.nintendo.co.uk/Misc-/Nintendo-Direct/Latest-Nintendo-Direct/Nintendo-Direct-698557.html

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:13 pm

At least they’re giving people dates. Wii Fit U pushed back too. That might be a big title, certainly defied expectations last time

Tom June 11, 20132:13 pm

Wii Fit U delayed too, coming winter.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:12 pm

The gamepad party games are neat, but Miis make me inexplicably angry

Laura Ash June 11, 20132:12 pm

Developed for release this summer.

Tom June 11, 20132:12 pm

LAunch date pushed back for the title

Tom June 11, 20132:11 pm

Wii Party U….

Tom June 11, 20132:11 pm

Launching Spring 2014

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:11 pm

I love the idea of racing on two sides of the same track, upside down

Tom June 11, 20132:10 pm

Mario Kart 8.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:10 pm

Gliding mechanics from the 3DS one also feature

Tom June 11, 20132:10 pm

Im actually very excited for this. May warrant a Wii U purchase

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:09 pm

This looks brilliant. I hope there are still tracks you can fall off of

Laura Ash June 11, 20132:09 pm

I used to spend hours on Mario Kart!

Tom June 11, 20132:09 pm

Antigrav bikes!

Tom June 11, 20132:09 pm

Motorbikes return, along with Antigrav karts… what is this madness.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:08 pm

but who can dislike Mario kart

Tom June 11, 20132:08 pm

Mario Kart!!

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:08 pm

You’re pretty much guaranteed fun with anything first party, whether or not most people care is another thing

Tom June 11, 20132:08 pm

Cat Mario, not Cat Suits.
Mario can scratch enemies with his claws.

Tom June 11, 20132:07 pm

Actually looks very fun!!

Tom June 11, 20132:06 pm

Now with “Catsuits”

Tom June 11, 20132:06 pm

Ohh… Super MArio 3D World! for Wii U

Laura Ash June 11, 20132:06 pm

Having some technical difficulties.

Tom June 11, 20132:05 pm

Looks very Super Mario 3DS land!

Tom June 11, 20132:04 pm

For people strugglign with a stream head over to
http://www.nintendo.co.uk/Misc-/Nintendo-Direct/Latest-Nintendo-Direct/Nintendo-Direct-698557.html

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:04 pm

Pokemon X and Y October 12th worldwide

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:04 pm

I’ve got it! http://www.nintendo.co.uk/Misc-/Nintendo-Direct/Latest-Nintendo-Direct/Nintendo-Direct-698557.html

Tom June 11, 20132:04 pm

Pokemon X and Y launching October 12th

Tom June 11, 20132:03 pm

I’ve got nothing

Tom June 11, 20132:03 pm

Things don’t seem to be going so well…

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:03 pm

Have you got anything yet Tom?

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:01 pm

e3.nintendo.com seems to be stuck in an endless loop of refreshes

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:59 pm

I’m genuinely excited, this could be the year of the WiiS4

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:59 pm

30 seconds, this should be a prompt start as it’s pre-recorded

Tom June 11, 20131:55 pm

Last night was so powerful, I actually couldn’t sleep!

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:55 pm

Smash Bros dated, Mario, Zelda, Metroid. All familiar names, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing at this point. People just want games, and combined with a price cut, Christmas could be the Wii U’s salvation. The 3DS, meanwhile, is coasting.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:51 pm

Well, discard it from your minds for an hour, because there’s a console that needs saving. Do Nintendo have the goods?

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:51 pm

Oh man. Oh god. Oh man oh god oh man. Last night, right?
