Along with telling us they are under way with the next Zelda game they announced this as well. The game still look gorgeous and it will look even better made for HD.

Also a new 3D Mario, Mario Kart and Smash Bros will be playable at E3. New Yoshi game based on Kirbys Epic Yarn and the VC is coming out in April.

Much rather they remade golden eye for the wiiU and improved physics, but then again, I stopped caring about Nintendo since the cube era.

i see an odd pattern going on here, CES was amazing last year but E3 was rather disappointing, this year it seems to be the reverse. CES was rather lame and it's looking like we're gonna have a great E3 this year :)

Wow oh wow. Sadly I would gladly go buy a Wii U just to play this game. Damn you Nintendo!

Who says Nintendo just sell the same first party titles over-and-over again? Oh, wait.

It's smart. I'll buy them and no doubt love them, but I thought Ninty was looking to get more 3rd party titles on the Wii U. Have they spoken any more about that?

Haha, wind waker is the new OoT! OoT was released a total of 11 times last I counted, a right cash-cow for nintendo, wonder how many times this will get re-released.

Also, $8 for a SNES game!? Wow, does anyone actually pay that? Cheaper to buy a 2nd hand SNES and the cartridges.

Two words...
GamePad Support
As such, this is a definite buy for me.

Have to say, as a WiiU owner, was more than happy with everything announced for today. I have gone on the record about the fact the WiiU is not my primary console, so it is appearing to serve the exact purpose I purchased it for... To play some great 1st party Nintendo games.

The other thing I am incredibly psyched about, is the announcement of the Virtual Console, in particular the fact that games for the first 30 days will be 30 cents each. I will easily pick up 10 classic SNES games, and since it will only cost me $3 to do so, call me a happy camper.

I'm excited about Mario Kart, maybe the new Mario game (3D land was fun but I didn't like galaxy). I'm disappointed there's no new Mario Party game, playing Nintendo Land really made me want a Mario Party game for the WiiU

You haven't seen the SNES market lately have you? A system can go up to $200, and up to $1500 for a new boxed system...... games can go from tens of dollars to hundreds of dollars...back in early 2000 when SNES was considered an "old" system games went cheap, now its in the "retro" stage and games are worth a good bit now...
