Anyone who watched Nintendo’s E3 presentation in full would agree that they were expecting a few more projects from the Big N. Pikmin 3, New Super Mario Bros. U and Nintendo Land all look like promising titles, and we can expect that each of these games will be sitting with the console when it launches later this year. So then, why did Nintendo neglect to tease any software set for a year or more down the track? You know, titles sitting outside the launch window - well, it could be that these games don’t yet exist to a presentable degree, or it could be that Nintendo is saving these big announcements for a later date. Who knows.
GameTrailers editor-in-chief Shane Satterfield had explicitly said before E3 that he was very impressed with the Wii U launch line-up. But it was only after the show when Satterfield had jumped on Twitter and restated that the game in particular that had sparked this enthusiasm was absent from the games shown at E3. A missing game? Invisible software? Spooky. Check out Satterfield’s tweet:
“Just realized that a Wii U game I knew about well before E3 was never announced at the show. I’m guessing there are others to come as well.”
Way to hype us up, Satterfield. What could the mystery game be? Retro Studios’ game? A Nintendo franchise? Some third-party software? Star Fox? We’re sure to find out when Nintendo announces more Wii U details, including price and release dates, before September rolls around.
