Loads of great download games on the way.

Your Amiibo can have customised moves, you can train abilities and focus on certain stats. Battling between Amiibo's boost rankings quicker.

So this is Bill Trinen continuing with Amiibo, it could be a popular extra.

We have a Link figure, Wii Fit Trainer...

Now the Nintendo Minute, we're going to complete our write-ups. What did you think?

Now we have Star Fox, it seems!

Link and Pit having a duel

OK, here's an animation...

One more thing...

Time for one more thing?

Movement restricted if you're in the wrong colour ink.

Ah, so humans turn into squids, OK. Looks like it could be fun.

Tactical view on the GamePad screen.

A territory game, change view with the GamePad.

A squid can swim in its ink to move around quickly.

Something weird now...

Quirky power ups, looks fantastic.

Create your own custom courses on the Wii U GamePad. Retro and 3D themes.

It's Mario Maker, which was leaked but is still awesome.

Outer space battles, woah

Some lovely footage, bosses and battles!

Phew, Hyrule Warriors

Bayonetta 2!

shesh, that Zelda Wii U looked fantastic

Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, utilising the X & Y engine, it seems.

We're moving onto Pokemon...

Well, that looked gorgeous.

Powerful enemies appearing in a peaceful world.

An open world is the focus.

There it is, that's a vast world, art style has a Skyward Sword / modern vibe.

Focused on exploration.

Eiji Aonuma introducing us to some ideas behind the ambitions in the new Zelda.

The Legend of Zelda!

Captain Toad!

This game seems perfect for merchandise, surely?

Player one can eat and spit up his partner.

Plenty of Yoshi transformations, two player mode included.

Good Feel still developing, which is great news.

No time limits, encouraged to explore and experiment.

Looks gorgeous, with gameplay elements familiar to Yoshi fans.

Yoshi's Wooly World, here we go!

Figure's stats will evolve and update through Super Smash Bros. It'll develop attributes and skills.

Reggie is now introducing Amiibo, the toy platform for NFC.

Lots of information areas, coins to earn.

New 3DS Smash modes - sliding difficulty scale like Kid Icarus: Uprising, it seems.

3 Classes, 12 special moves each.

Looks like Miis will have awesome abilities. Mii Brawler, Mii Swordfighter and Mii Gunner all shown as separate classes.

This looks like Mii characters for Smash!

Reggie and Iwata duking it out!

This is awesome!

Reggie Fils-Aime in claymation, interesting.

It begins!

One minute, hype train is almost here!

Are you all digging this music? I'm digging this music.

10 years of Reggie, haven't they just flown by...

Will Next Level Games make an appearance? They must be due to show something...


ThomasBW84 said:

I'd love a bit of Super Mario Galaxy 1 & 2 HD for a soon-ish release.

We've just switched over to the YouTube stream instead of Twitch...


ThomasBW84 said:

How do you all feel about the Star Fox reveal and concept, then?


ThomasBW84 said:

Well well, we've already had an unTIMEly leak of Star Fox for Wii U. That'll be a big part of this event. There will be much more, though, we can't wait!

Shall we get this party started?
