E3 2009 – Nintendo

nintendo_wii After the extremely dull and uneventful press conference last year, Nintendo promised to come back with a vengeance this year. Well, this year has came and gone for Nintendo, so how did they do? Well, in my humble opinion, only a couple of announcements saved them from having a worse year than last year. Here are the highlights from their press conference this year.

Mario Bros. Wii – This was the first announcement of the day. This is a 2D side scroller that can have up to 4 players. Looked pretty good, but nothing mind blowing. It’s Mario, so they’ve already sold me a copy.

Wii Fit Plus – The new Wii Fit features a calorie counter and a customizable workout. I guess if you like Wii Fit you’ll enjoy this. Who knows. 15 new balance games will also be included.

Motion Plus/Wii Sports Resort – This was announced last year, but we finally got a date this year. This is scheduled to be released July 26th of this year.

Red Steel 2 – I made the remark to Chris that I don’t understand why they made this. I stand by that.

Final Fantasy: The Crystal Bearers – I am not a big fan of the Final Fantasy series, so I can’t really give anything but a biased opinion on this.

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days – Definitely looking forward to this. The graphics looked really nice for something coming out on the DS. This is a DS exclusive.

Mario and Luigi RPG : Bowser’s Inside Story – This game takes place inside of Bowser. Looked really interesting. The previous M&L RPG’s were quality games, so I am thinking we’ll have a good game here. This comes out on the DS this Fall.

Golden Sun DS – Golden Sun returns to Nintendo handheld. Not much information was given about the game, only a short teaser was shown.

Jame’s Patterson’s Women’s Murder Club: Games of Passion – This wins the “WTF” of the show. Seriously, who would buy this? Comes out for the DS, if you’re one of the very few who are chomping at the bit for this game.

Cop: The Recruit – This upcoming DS game looked similar to something from the GTA series. It looked alright, I guess.

Style Savy DS – A fashion game. Yeah.

Flip Note Studio – This is exclusively available for the DSi.

A New Mario v.s. Donkey Kong – This new addition to the series features customizable levels. Will be released June 8th.

Legends of Zelda: Spirit Tracks – This new addition of the Zelda series is headed to the DS. A release date or additional info was not given.

WarioWare: DIY – This new WarioWare game for the DS will let the game create their own mini games.

Wii Vitality Sensor – This wins second place in the “WTF” contest. Not much infor was given. I won’t lie, this thing looks silly as all hell.

Super Mario Galaxy 2 – This lit up the crowd, rightfully so. The first game was amazing, so I am sure we’re in for the same with this one.

The Conduit, Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles, and Dead Space: Extraction – These were the third party announcements. Not much of an announcement, most knew these were scheduled to be released.

Metriod: Other M – Team Ninja is working on this, so you know it’s going to be insanely hard. But still, this was the announcement of the show for me. Team Ninja and Metroid? Hell yes.

Not a great showing, but Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Metroid: Other M saved it. Up next, Sony’s live suic…er…press conference.
