Wii U Blowout: New Zelda, Yoshi’s Island, Mario Kart, and More
Filed under: WII U, NINTENDO, ZELDA


​Early this morning, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata held yet another Nintendo Direct conference to apologize for the current Wii U software drought. He didn’t stop with just an apology, he set out to show consumers that plenty of Nintendo favorite franchises are on their way, many of which will be playable at the upcoming E3 expo this June in Los Angeles.

First up, an HD Zelda is being developed exclusively for the Wii U. Franchise producer Eiji Aonuma didn’t reveal many details on the upcoming HD Zelda, but did say that he and his team are going “back to the basics”. While on the topic of Zelda, Nintendo also announced that Wind Waker HD would come to the Wii U Virtual Console this Fall.

In addition to this news, Nintendo debuted gameplay footage for Yoshi’s Island for the Wii U, showing off the new yarn-like art style. Iwata also confirmed that Mario Kart Wii U, Super Smash Bros., and a new 3D Mario from EAD Tokyo are in development and will be in playable form at this year’s E3 expo.

New Zelda in the works is nice, and Wind Waker is one of my favorite Zelda games (Majora's Mask comes in 2nd).

The new Yoshi's Island art style isn't really anything new. Reminds me of Yoshi's Story.

Mario Kart and Smash Bros we already knew but good to know it's still coming. Hopefully they remove tripping in the new Smash because I hated that in Brawl.

Man, people will never stop wanting Zelda games. Forget Mario, everyone wants Zelda.
