Nintendo had a great conference last year, and this year was even better. They began the conference with music from Zelda, which is celebrating it's 25th Anniversary, and Shigeru Miyamoto came out to discuss the game's history, and talk about Skyward Sword. The game is set to arrive on the Wii this holiday, and was not demoed at the conference, but was promised for those at E3 to check out on the show floor.

After the Zelda talk, Nintendo began showcasing the future lineup of 3DS titles, which includes a new Mario, Mario Kart, Kid Icarus, Metal Gear Solid 3 in 3D, and even a new Luigi's Mansion title! I loved the first game on Gamecube, and the 3DS version looks pretty neat as well.

But then the main event came: the official announcement of the next console for Nintendo: The Wii U. The Wii U will use all current device for the Wii, but introduces a touch-screen controller which has a monitor on it a bit bigger than a PSP screen, so you could play a game on it while someone watches your TV. The visuals are now in HD, so many games coming out for the console will look famailiar to those playing on the 360 and PS3.

Oh, and Super Smash Bros. was announced for the Wii U and 3DS!!!

Third Party support looks strong, with Darksiders 2 set to arrive day and date with PS3 and 360 versions. Batman Arkham City, Ninja Gaiden 3, Dirt, and Metro Last Light were others games showcased running on the Wii U.

With three platforms to support for the next few years, Nintendo has a lot to focus on when it comes to what games to make and which platform to make it on. But I know Nintendo can do it, but please, no more Mario Parties!
