Nintendo is showing several franchise classics that are coming to the 3DS, playable on the Electronic Entertainment Expo's show floor. Star Fox, Mario Kart, Luigi's Mansion, Kid Icarus, and Mario Bros are all moving to the 3DS starting this Fall. Announced this week, the five new titles have classic game play, but feature new elements unique to the Nintendo 3DS system.
Mario Kart is the first title that Nintendo showed during their E3 2011 press conference, and allows players to hang glide, move underwater, and more. Mario Kart will be available this Holiday Season, and will be all new.
Also announced is a new Star Fox, which will allow players to control the ship either through tilting the 3DS system, or using traditional controls. The 3DS camera is also integrated into the Star Fox title. Star Fox is launching in September.
Super Mario is also coming to the Nintendo 3DS. Super Mario 3D was created entirely from scratch for the Nintendo 3DS. Yes, fans, the Tanooki Suit was on display for the game. Super Mario 3D comes out before the end of the year.
Kid Icarus looks like a very fast version of Star Fox, or at a minimum, Space Harrier. Kid Icarus also has a multiplayer "deathmatch" style mode, 3vs3. The graphics look great for the system. One last thing shown about Kid Icarus Uprising was the card battle game, an augmented reality card game which will also be playable during the show.
Luigi's Mansion 2 is a new 3DS title that looks a lot like the GameCube version of the game. Use the flashlight to stop ghosts, vaccuum them up, and platform your way through several mansions (not just one).
