Well holy crap. that was... Nintendo... Reggie VS Iwata! Robot Chicken! At least watch the opening of the Direct!

We got a first look at Zelda Wii U, which as you can see is beautiful and needs to be seen in motion. Anomua Talked about how Nintendo have never really been able to capture the open world of the original Zelda for the SNES. All the following games was single area's lined up to give the illusion of an open world.
This still unnamed Zelda is full on, See that Go there open world will hit next year

Click. Make. Big
Hyrule Warriors got some more character details. Princess Zelda and Minda will be playable and they are promising more in the full game due September 19th/24th

Smash Bro', N|FC, Character
As rumoured Nintendo's NFC system will work with Smash Wii U. you'll be able to customise characters moves and store them on the character. Not only will they have your moves but they'll also learn how to fight and can be used in "friendly" fights.
Mii's join smash bros too. instead of being an generic character with you Mii's head there are 3 unique mii classes with a move pool that you can pull from. There is a brawler, a sword fighter and arm cannon class.
Speaking of new characters Palena from Kid Icarus was announced via an anime brawl between link and pit. She had an awful lot of dialogue for a smash bro's revel and the sequence ends with a tease of Dark Pit.

The GameCube Controller Adapter for Wii U, which supports up to four GCN controllers (including WaveBird), will be available for $19.99 USD Nintendo will also sell Smash Bros. branded GameCube controllers for $29.99 USD each. Lastly, a special Smash Bros. for Wii U bundle, which includes a copy of the game, one adapter, and a GCN controller, will be sold for $99.99 USD. Knowing the way we get done over in regional pricing it, think we can knock 10 of those prices.

Speaking of NFC the platform will be called Amiibo and the (same) figures will work on smash bros, Mario Kart 8, Mario Party 10  and other games. It wasn't clear but it was implied that these figures will also work with the Wii u versions of Skylanders and Disney infinity. Amiibo will also work with 3Ds once they launch a wireless Add on

more footage of Bayonetta 2 was shown the news though was their will be Nintendo costumes Link, Samus and (a hilariously inappropriate) Peach for Bayonetta to wear and there will be a special Edition that comes with Bayonetta 1

only 3 Mario games was shown. Mario 3D world Spin off Capatin Toad: Treasure Tracker, this is a full on game based on the mini game found in SM3DW. The other title was Mario Maker that we covered a few days ago. Yes you'll be able to make your own Mario levels with switchable style Classic Super Mario Bro's or New Mario Bro's U. Toad is due this year whilst Maker will appear next year

The third title is Mario Party 10 which you'll remember is Amiibo equipped. This time Bowser is the star and the game pad plays a Dungeon Master style role.

Yarn Yoshi appeared now called Yoshi's Woolly World and is well an wool based Yoshi's Island. The game looks very nice and features two player co-op (yes you can "eat" each other)

A new Kirby game was shown for Wii U, not Much was explained but it looked like a smaller downloadable title

X got not only an story trailer (WARNING JAPANESE ACTION) but also a name Xenoblade Chronicles X

New IP
that noise is a thousand gamers screaming out in pain as their biggest Nintendo target disappears. Splatoon is a competitive 4V4  third person shooter that plays like a mix of Mario Sunshine and Jet Set Radio. Instead of racking up kills players are tasked with Inking up as much of the level as possible. Not only are players able to use a range of weapons to spread their ink and dispatch foes but players can also turn into a squid and quickly swim though their own team ink.

Third Party Exclusive
Continuing Nintendo's theme of saving games from development hell here comes Devil's Third, the next game from Ninja Gaiden/Dead or Alive director Tomonobu Itagaki, is coming exclusively to Wii U.
Itagaki's action game marries melee combat, and cover- and first-person shooting, Developer Valhalla Games has been working on Devil's Third for many years. After the dissolution of THQ, its fate remained uncertain

Star Fox!
Star Fox is coming To Wii U along side "Project guard" and "Project Giant Robot" all devleloped by Miyamoto himself.

The Wii U GamePad serves as a first-person cockpit view inside the Arwing in Star Fox, which includes a new helicopter vehicle, and ability to switch to the Landmaster tank instantly.

Project Giant Robot sees players building robots. Like Star Fox, the GamePad becomes your cockpit view. Custom robots then battle, as you use both button and gesture controls, which "adds leverage and momentum" -- in an effort to knock each other over.

Using 12 different cameras to observe and attack, Project Guard sees players fighting against a robot invasion.
