E3, the Electronics Expo, showcased several up coming games for the 8th generation of consoles (Play Station 4, Xbox ONE, Wii U) and the PC. During the different presentations of the different companies, there were quite a few exclusives revealed for each console. If we focus only on the Wii U for a second, we’d quickly realize that two of the most awaited games that were announced and showcased were:
- The Legend of Zelda
- Super Smash Bros.
Those are the games we’ll be looking at, and we’ll discuss the effect of them on the future of the Wii U. Lets get started.
The Super Smash Bros this time looks extremely satisfying, one can’t point the finger on which aspect it exactly is, whether it’s the sheer number of the characters or maybe it’s the amount of moves you can pull off against your opponent. This is one fighting game which is primarily satisfying.
The game can playable in two basic methods. They’re pretty much self explanatory but just for the sake of it; the For Glory mode allows you to battle for the ranks and this match would matter in the long run. The For Fun matches are designed just to pass time, go ahead and beat up Mario with Charizard.
The game currently 33 characters that have been announced. This not only make Super Smash Bros. have an incredible roster, but it also means a larger array of possibilities of pairing and matches, this means that you wont have to repeat the same configuration over and over again.
Super Smash Bros. is coming to the Wii U and the 3DS. However, the Wii U version is obviously much better looking and has a significantly better feeling of the game, because of the much larger screen.
Without getting into too much detail of the gameplay, Nintendo made us drool for Super Smash Bros for the Wii U and the 3DS by just a group of trailers and pictures.
The Legend of Zelda is one of the most iconic game franchises ever created by Nintendo, in the history of it making extremely popular ones. The game started out as a simple 2D one, now in the latest trailer (other than which we have barely any information), we see an extremely beautiful ‘open world’, where this character on a horse is being chased by what looked like a monster.
A close up is shown of the face of this rider, now everybody assumes that the character is probably ‘Link’ but looks too feminine. Later we found out that it isn’t confirmed to be ‘Link’. This raises the question, for the first time in the history of the series, can we be playing as the legendary Princess Zelda?
Take a look at the reveal trailer from E3 below, the graphics are looking like nothing before, on the Wii U.
Now that we’ve briefly reviewed the two most anticipate games coming on the Wii U later in time, is it possible that these games might be able to change the almost failing console? Its hard to say, but obviously these are the tiny parts of a huge chain of reactions. They might turn this super underrated console into a less underrated one. What are your thoughts?
