Nintendo is celebrating 30 amazing years of their most popular franchise Super Mario. To kick off the celebrations, huge gaming announcements were made this morning and there is clearly something for everyone to enjoy. Here is what’s to come for 2015 and early 2016!

Star Fox Zero (Wii U)

Remember the old classic Star Fox games? Well Star Fox Zero brings a new experience to the classic games with beautiful 3D graphics. Shigeru Miyamoto stated that both Wii U screens have a specific purpose. On one screen the gaming world is shown on the TV while the other is used for gameplay.

Another neat feature for the Wii U is you can use two sticks to speed up and flip around, and there is only one button to fire weapons. For the remaining buttons you can use them to make the arwing transform.

Shigeru Miyamoto also made a point by saying that it’s not a remake or a part 4/5. That is why they named it Star Fox Zero.

Final Thoughts

Some big announcements this year, and considering I have never followed an E3 event I have really enjoyed the show as a first-timer. It has been such a surprising and entertaining ride, and what a great way to start off Summer.
