TheAssailant6661's E3 2008 Highlights

Wii Speak Microphone


Sadly, E3 just ended without the mention of any new Handheld (D:), But I have here, the entire list of all the highlights of Nintendo's E3 Keynote.

First off there's the Wii MotionPlus accessory, which is more precise, and renders every slight shift in real-time. Along with the Wii MotionPlus, there will be a new game, WiiSports Resort, a beach themed Wii Sports which will include a Wii MotionPlus with an extended Wiimote jacket which will arrive next spring.

Next, Shaun White Snowboarding will feature use of the Balance Board.

A new Animal Crossing for Wii, Animal Crossing: City Folk, is comming, along with the long awaited Wii "headset", except it's not a headset (D:) but rather a microphone that allows you to communicate with your friends while you play Animal Crossing Online together (MMO anyone?).

Star Wars: The Clone Wars will be released Holiday 2008.

New Rayman, Rayman Raving Rabbids: TV Party comming in Fall 2008.

Call of Duty: World at War will feature use of the Wii Zapper and a Co-op mode.

New Guitar Hero for DS, Guitar Hero: On Tour Decades, which will allow you to play friends with the original and still use the same songs with the new song share ability.

Spore: Creatures for DS.

New Pokemon Ranger to be released November 10th.

GTA: China Town Wars for DS this Winter (now we just need GTA for the Wii).

Reggienator action!

And last, but not least, Wii Music, which will feature over 50 instruments, uses the Balance Board for the drum pedals, and records your performances, will be released by years end.

I am very disappointed by this years E3, maybe we'll see more at Tokyo Game Show? And what the hell is that secret game that was teased at the end of the latest Nintendo Power? Where's the new handheld? Who knows, but we will find out soon enough.

This has been your E3 correspondant (I saw it online! :D),

Yeah, it was dissappointing. Maybe more released later in the week?

15 quid, if only. Unfortunately it will more end up being 30 quid :(

I am reasonably happy with this E3 but sad that some hardcore games weren't announced at all.

CoD5 looks incredible.
