Holy cow!  These Nintendo Directs just keep getting juicier.  First, an entire one dedicated to the reveal of a new generation of Pokemon.  Next, one centered around first party Wii U games that's sure to leave you breathless.  Of the games revealed included the confirmation of a Zelda game for Wii U, plus an HD remake of The Wind Waker, as well as a 3D Mario, Mario Kart, and so much more!  Watch the video or head inside for details!

  • Zelda Wii U reconfirmed, said will take a while to be released
  • The Wind Waker HD revealed, to be released by this fall
  • New 3D Mario platformer to be revealed and playable this E3

  • Two major system updates coming, one in the spring, one in the summer

If Nintendo stands by their word, I'm positive this E3 will be quite unforgettable.  It's like Nintendo's won E3 before it even started.  Out of all these announcements that came today, the announcement of The Wind Waker HD was my favorite.  My favorite video game of all time, given a gorgeous makeover (a-la Ocarina of Time 3D, but HD graphics)!  What's got you most excited off this list?
