Nintendo had an amazing presentation packed with nothing but entertaining trailers that, unlike many other E3 presentations, don't talk about hardware in terms that hang highly above the average person's ability to understand.

The digital presentation kicked us off with the highly awaited Star Fox Zero for the Wii U, officially revealed to be released later this year during the holiday season. This game will not be a continuation of the other Star Fox games or a remake, allowing for newcomers to jump right into the game without missing the storyline.

Next, Nintendo of America's iconic Reggie Fils-Aime announced that at next year's E3, they would certainly be revealing more about their next mysterious platform, the NX, as well as how Nintendo will be incorporated into "theme parks", almost directly referencing the partnership with Universal to bring Nintendo into the Universal Theme Park currently best known for having Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Lastly he also stated that next year we'll be getting information on Nintendo's mobile platforming plans.

A nintendo presentation wouldn't be complete without the high-selling and obsessive world of amiibos, announcing for the first time dual-function amiibos with Turbo Charge Donkey Kong & Hammer Slam Bowser along with their respective vehicles. What's most interesting about these is that they'll be Skylanders Superchargers figures AND amiibos. Simply rotate the base of the figures to change them between the two.

Next, we have Zelda! Legend of Zelda: Triforce Heroes will feature a team-up of three heroes with the combined power of the triforce to venture as a trio through the game. Hyrule Warriors, a game which I can personally guarantee was a blast for Wii U this past year, will now be making its way to the 3DS in early 2016 for Hyrule Warriors: Legends. Purchase of the game will also include new characters Tetra and the King of Red Lions from the Wind Waker games as playable characters, which you can unlock for the Wii U with the purchase of the 3DS game.

The long-rumored Metroid Prime: Federation Force was officially revealed with a 4-Player co-op mode. Little was explained about the game since this segment of the show had no time in between trailers (thankfully), but the graphics appear to be for the 3DS at this time.

Fire Emblem: Fates seems to have a Wii U and 3DS release with an amazing trailer. Family members of mine actually came waltzing into the room to find out what song I was playing.

Next is the game Shin Megami Tensei & Fire Emblem Crossover Genei Ibun Roku by Atlus games.

Xenoblade Chronicles X released a new trailer with an official release date of December 4th, 2015. Expect to see this epic adventure later this year!

It was also revealed that a new Animal Crossing game, Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer would be released, along with an event known as Amiibo Festival, hopefully with more details to come.

Yoshi's Woolly World is coming out, but the story behind coming up with actual Yarn Yoshi amiibo is intriguing. One lady made yarn yoshi for fun, and brought it into the nintendo office. This inspired them to actually make the yoshi amiibos plush rather than standard plastic that we've seen before now.

Yo-kai Watch also got an epic trailer release!

If you're a fan of either the Mario Sticker Star games, Mario & Luigi team-up games, or any of the 3D mario titles, you're in luck! All three of these mario franchises are merging together for Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam!

Mario Tennis is finally getting a Wii U game with Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash!

And lastly, Mario Maker, the self-creating social community game that lets you make your own Mario levels. Along with this, we have the 8-Bit Mario amiibo which gives you the ability to grow your Mario on the map.
