Nintendo Reveals Super Smash Bros. Wii U, Mario Kart 8, Donkey Kong, and More!

Although Nintendo shied away from a spectacle of a show this year at E3, they still made their presence known. Microsoft and Sony went head to head with their console reveals, but with Nintendo’s next-gen system reveal and release behind them, they could focus more on the upcoming games. During their E3 Nintendo Direct, effectively replacing their conference, Nintendo revealed a host of games coming to the Wii U and 3DS. We know you don’t like to read too much, so we’ll keep it short and simple. Here are some of the highlights from Nintendo’s E3 Direct and from the show floor of E3:
