Nintendo plots Wii U resurgence with 3D Mario by October

I thought Nintendo had stepped back from E3 this year? How will they be debuting Mario Kart there?

They're still holding (I believe: correct me if I'm wrong) a lower-key media announcement and showing some playable demos.

I'm not saying anything at the moment. I'm quietly hopeful though.

If this is true, coupled with a definitive price cut and i could really see WiiU sales picking right up by the end of the year. Especially if the ps4/720 end up being £4-500 each.

Very new consoles with few games or one hitting its stride and some great games for less. I know which one i'd pick.

There'll just be no E3 press conference. They'll still have a booth and the like on the show floor.

Ooh, another mario kart, how many is that now?

Zelda wind waker hd, will be great i'm sure, but it's not a system seller, for crying out loud give us a NEW Zelda, also a new Metroid and i promise i'll dig my Wii-u out. Pikmin is looking great but again i don't feel it's a system seller.

I bought mine on the strength of Zombie-u, but since then nothing :cry: ......*must blindly keep the faith*

That's why a lot of people were spouting "DOOMSDAY" "DOOMSDAY" because they didn't realise Nintendo were always going to be there. They just won't have a huge presentation, it's more about the gamer this time, than the media.

I dont think its enough to be honest. My mind is 80-90% made up and would take more than a Mario kart game, its the future promise, and having 3rd party support is critical, and I dont think they have enough of it.

They're giving us Wind Waker HD to tie us over until the new Zelda comes out, as Aonuma stated "New Zelda will take sometime"

Games console with no games is just an expensive dust magnet.

It's a Nintendo console. If that's what sways it, why are you even considering?

I like some Nintendo games, always have in the past. I just think they need some new IP's and 3rd party support to make it worthwhile buying the console.

First party has always been quite good.
