Wii U at E3: Nintendo Focuses on the Future, Ignores the Present

With all the talk at E3 about the XBox One and PS4, people seem to already be forgetting about Nintendo's Wii U, which was released last fall.

In a 45-minute long video presentation, the Wii U showed off some of the new games they have in the works. They previewed a number of classic franchise returns and revived forgotten ones through their own company and third party game-makers.

However, the biggest problem Nintendo is facing is that these beloved games they mentioned will not be showing up until 2014.

Games such as Mario Kart 8, Smash Brothers, Xenosage, and Bayonetta may see shelves in the spring of next year, according to Ars Technica.

This holiday season, Nintendo will have a modest showing of what they have to offer with: Super Mario 3D Land, Legend of Zelda: Windwaker in HD, Donkey Kong Country 2D, Lost World (Sonic the Hedgehog) and a the new Wii Fit.

Nintendo has a strange relationship with third party titles and many times the games differ greatly from its peers XBox and PlayStation. This time around, however, the Wii U's presentation promised some major ports coming to the system.

Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, Batman: Arkham Origins, Disney Infinity, Just Dance 2014, Rayman Legends, Scribblenauts Unlimited: A DC Comics Adventure, Disney's Planes, Skylanders SWAP Force, Splinter Cell: Blacklist, and Watch Dogs will all be making an appearance on the console, according to Ars Technica.

So while the video game company is not making huge waves at the moment, sometime soon in the near future they could be churning out some classics.
