Another E3 has come and gone, and now it’s time to round up the news of what was announced at video gaming’s biggest show. The Big N was there once again to show off some great new games. Let’s take a look at what they showcased this year, and I’ll give my thoughts along the way.
In 2013, Nintendo shocked everyone by choosing not to have a press conference at E3. Instead, they opted for a special E3 version of their Nintendo Direct series. However, they still brought us news about lots of new games, just as we’d expect if they had done a live press conference. With lots of news about the new Super Smash Bros., as well as announcements of several 3DS and Wii U games coming out that fall, they did not disappoint. This year, they again opted out of having a live press conference, and had a roughly 45-minute-long“Digital Event.” Here’s what they had to show.

E3 2013 has finally come to a close, and just like the best of websites we decide to give you each of our five games of show. The lists are, by and large, pretty subjective, but the descriptive paragraphs should give you a good idea of whether or not you’d enjoy the game as much as we did.

High-octane, arcade-style combat racing: Coming to Wii U in 2014.
Amidst the flurry of charming and pleasant indie titles making their way to the Wii U eShop as an effect of Nintendo’s strong interest in the independent community, one game exists that brands itself neither charming nor pleasant: The high speed brawler Road Redemption is based off of a 1991-1999 video game series called “Road Rash”, and it’s coming to PC, Mac, Linux, and Wii U in the second half of 2014. But what’s the game actually about?
“It’s all about motorcycle combat racing.”, the developer DarkSeas games told me in an interview, ”So imagine you’re playing an action game like God of War or Zelda: Twilight Princess, but moving at 100mph.”
Well. That sounds pretty awesome.
The remake of Donkey Kong Country Returns is just a few weeks away from being on store shelves, but what does the game showcase that wasn’t already in the Wii version?
Earlier this year, Nintendo announced that they were hard at work on re-releasing their hit Wii game Donkey Kong Country Returns for the 3DS, not surprisingly titled Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. The game is essentially a carbon copy port of the Wii version aside from a few new additions explained after the break, but all the core levels and gameplay mechanics have been retained.
So, what can players expect from this handheld version? Hit the jump to find out.
The announcement of “A Link to the Past 2″ brings with it many questions, but through the cloud of speculation we can see that some details about the game are more important than others.
The grand finale in this past, highly acclaimed Nintendo Direct was quite the doozy– not only will there be a brand-spankin’-new Zelda game for 3DS out in only six to eight months, it will also be a successor to the beloved A Link to the Past. But what exactly do we know about it? Is it a direct sequel? Is it the same game remade? Is it brand new? We’ve got 5 of the biggest things you can expect out of this title, right here on NintendoEverything!

Co-creative director Florent Sacré talks to me about ZombiU’s “Survival” mode, creating a tense atmosphere, and how “open world” the game is.
There are a lot of Wii U launch games coming out on Sunday, but none of them are quite as hotly anticipated as Ubisoft Montpellier’s ZombiU. This isn’t necessarily because we all think it looks incredible (which, admittedly many of us do), but there’s a certain excitement surrounding it that isn’t present when talking about New Super Mario Bros. U or Scribblenauts Unlimited. It’s a new IP, for one, but it’s also a return to the survival horror styles of yesteryear, and it uses the Gamepad more interestingly than any other launch title, bar none.
Even if you forget about all of that, though, the concept alone might be enough to call ZombiU the zombie game we’ve been dreaming about for years.
