Breathe slowly as you read this prose.
During Tuesday's forty-one minute Nintendo Direct @E3 2013 — hosted by Global President of Nintendo, Satoru Iwata — we were showered with some pretty impressive news for upcoming software titles. Some of the information was naturally a bit watered-down, but exciting footage and fresh information for titles like Super Mario 3D World, Mario Kart 8, and The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD was enough to keep us tuned in. And, let's face it, setting the initial tone with Pokémon X and Pokémon Y coverage was simply smashing! Speaking of smashing...
At thirty-four minutes and thirty seconds into the presentation, Nintendo unleashed their Final Smash with coverage on the next installment of Super Smash Bros. — due to be released at some point in 2014 for the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. Not surprisingly, a host of characters from Nintendo's largest and most popular franchises are making their return to battle including Mario, Donkey Kong, Link, Samus Aran, Kirby, Fox, Pikachu, Bowser, and Pit.
New characters revealed were Mega Man, the female character trainer from Wii Fit, and...AND the male villager (Murabito) from the Animal Crossing series. Talk about smashing and grabbing the attention of your audience. More returning characters and newcomers will be revealed in the near future.
Your fans have a few concerns, Nintendo.
One of the largest unknowns at the moment is how the Wii U and 3DS versions will work together. It's quite possible that the two versions will sync up with each other in the same manner as the Wii U and 3DS version of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. Another concern that fans have is the multiplayer online experience. In, Super Smash Bros. Brawl for example, the online multiplayer isn't very reliable. As a matter of fact, Nintendo's multiplayer online services in general are mediocre at best. It would be difficult for any Nintendo fan to contest that fact. I'm sure whatever Nintendo is planning for their current generation of gaming, and beyond, will be worthwhile. Let's hope they've learned from past mistakes.
