- Sunday Nintendo put up a video that revealed details on the new Wii U pad and their own social network called Miiverse. Many gaming critics thinks this was smart because it got a bunch of their functionality news out and they could focus on gaming at the conference.
- First game up was Pikmin 3. If you recall the last Pikmin game was released 8 years ago for the GameCube. This is also the first game showed that will be greatly enhanced by the Wii U pad.
- After a bit of a fun setup, Nintendo announced that there would be 23 Wii U games displayed. Right then it was made quite clear that pushing the Wii U was going to be their focus this year.
- Before the games were showed, an explaination of what they have done to correct the online problems with Wii U and demonstrated how the Miiverse will work to enhance the Wii U experience.
- Next up was Super Mario Bros. U. 4 Player co-op and messages can be scattered throughout the game from your friends. No mention of the co-op was online though.
- To address the lack of third party games, they announced Batman Arkham City: Armored Edition for the Wii. Then came displays for Darksiders II, Aliens Colonial Marines and, somewhat surprisingly, Mass Effect 3.
- Next came the integration of Wii Fit with the Wii U. Critics said it looks a bit awkard trying to use a tablet while exercising but the demo was limited and most are positive Nintendo has it figured out.
- The 3DS was the next item of focus. Naturally a new Mario Bros game was displayed for the device.
- Just that quickly they went right back to Wii U and showed Lego Harry Potter, Star Wars, and Underwater City.
- Just Dance for the Wii U was apparently the best demo of the conference for Nintendo. It showed how you set up dance moves on the Wii U pad for the person to dance too. It sounds corny but for those that love the dancing games, it sounds as if it will add something new to a rather simple idea.
- They ended the conference with an awkward display for NintendoLand, which appears to be a minigame compilation set in a themepark of Nintendo titles such as Donkey Kong, Mario, and Animal Crossing.
Overall critics seemed to be unimpressed with Nintendo this year. The focus was directed greatly towards the Wii U but the explainations of the features. With every display it became more complicated to follow. One critic said "its something that is just going to have to be played" and that's not a great way to sell your main focus for the year. They also failed to announce any pricing or dates other than "this holiday season". That didn't help much either.
