E3 2014 Day Two (Wii U and Nintendo Press Conference)

With day one over, so was day two. Like we did on ‘day one’, let’s focus on what we’re all looking forward to. This time, for the Wii U.

Zelda Wii U (Moving things up a notch)

Remember Zelda where it all started on the NES? Well it’s almost 30 years now (27 to be exact) and look how far it’s come! At E3 2014, they took things there. If you’ve seen the trailer then you know what I mean! From the gorgeous graphics, to what seems like an extremely open world and the aggressive enemies, this game seems to be breaking out of it’s comfort zone and spicing up the Zelda series. There isn’t much to go by yet besides what we’ve seen and heard on E3. Speaking of heard, creator Franchise director Eiji Aonuma spoke a little on the game and mentioned how he tried to channel the idea of the first Zelda game’s overworld. In other words, He tried to give the Zelda Wii U a bit more of the ‘freedom’ concept that the first Zelda had. Which is a nice touch if you ask me. The artwork makes me channel something I would see as an anime, yet mixed in with CG. This is one to look out for!

 

Hyrule Warriors (Joining forces for a change)

Hey, while we’re focused on the Zelda franchise, let’s talk on it’s added piece to the ‘Hyrule Family’, Hyrule Warriors. This particular game, surprisingly, was assisted by a company we may (or may not) be familiar with. Here’s a hint, Ninja Gaiden… yep, you might have guessed it. It’s Tecmo-Koei / Team Ninja. Nintendo joined forces with these guys to create what feels like a “Dynasty Warriors” world, except with Hylians’. With players that vary from Link and Zelda to characters like Impa and Midna, the various characters give leeway to a player’s preference in this type of genre.  Fun for 2-players, where 1 player may use a T.V. Screen while the other plays on their own screen with the Wii U Pad. Which is awesome, if you like that kind of thing. Overall, if you’re a fan of Dynasty Warriors (Hyrule Warriors… I see the resemblance), then this is worth looking out for.

Bayonetta is back and appears better

Remember her? Well she’s returning exclusively on the Wii U this October with some gadgets and interesting new gear preferences! Punish those like Demons and Angels who stand before you with guns, a sword, a whip and devastating summons in this critically acclaimed, stylized action game. You’ll be busy trying to string in as many combos as possible to get the best out of the gameplay. Oh let’s not ignore the HD graphics, gorgeous! And to top it off, Bayonetta comes packed in with the purchase of every retail packaged version of Bayonetta 2.

 These are just SOME of the many anticipated Wii U games to look out for! After Everything the Wii U has been offering lately, I’m sold! Stay tuned for one more E3 2014 blog regarding the Xbox One!
