Each game to appear at E3 in playable form, says Iwata.

Nintendo announced several new Wii U games during its Nintendo Direct presentation today, including two new Zelda games, Yarn Yoshi, Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem, and premiered the debut trailer for Monolith Soft’s new RPG. But there were other, still-to-be-shown and plainly obvious titles, as well.

Nintendo Entertainment Analysis and Development is working on a new 3D Mario game for Wii U. A new Mario Kart is also in development.

“We are planning to show these titles in playable form at E3,” said Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata said.

The team behind Wii Party is also working on the latest Party game for Wii U. (The title “Wii U Party” isn’t necessarily an official one.) The game features various play styles, including one that lets both players compete head-to-head using just the GamePad.

    Finally.
    I really hope the next Mario Kart is good, because on top of my Kart Racer list is Sonic Transformed by now.

      I agree that Sonic Transformed is a great game. Here’s hoping they take the competition from Sumo Digital & Sega seriously!

    Mario is keeping me away from the Wii U but if they keep the hardcore games coming that we just saw today I’m definitely getting a Wii U when the price drops.
