Iwata further teases Nintendo’s GamePad-focused titles for E3, developed under Miyamoto’s guidance

During the Q&A portion of Nintendo’s latest financial results briefing, president Satoru Iwata further teased the GamePad-focused titles the company will be bringing to E3 2014 next month.

There will be “multiple games”, Iwata said, “that are designed to introduce players to the value of the Wii U Game Pad by demonstrating playstyles only possible because of it.” Each one of these projects have been developed internally under Shigeru Miyamoto’s guidance.

Fans can expect a mix of games that are nearing completion to ones early in creation. Ultimately, Nintendo intends to “demonstrate the titles’ core appeals.”

Check out the rough translation of Iwata’s comments below.

Today I only spoke about Mario Kart and Super Smash Brothers For Wii U in terms of Wii U software, however, at the E3 event to be held in June in Los Angeles we will discuss other software as well. Also, at that time, we will introduce multiple games that are designed to introduce players to the value of the Wii U Game Pad by demonstrating playstyles only possible because of it. These titles have been developed by internal teams under the guidance of Mr. Miyamoto (Board Member, General Manager of the Development Division). The software titles that we will show at E3, which make use of the GamePad, will range from near complete titles to titles that are early in development, but will demonstrate the titles’ core appeals. We are preparing multiple software like this for the show.
