Showing off some of the big fancy 'hardcore' games coming to the Wii U, Nintendo revealed during E3 that both Mass Effect 3 and Trine 2 are coming to the console too.

Trine 2 will be in shiny Director's Cut format, though what exactly is different has yet to be revealed.

Also in the showreel were Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Aliens: Colonial Marines, Tank! Tank! Tank! and Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge, though most of these were revealed at E3 last year.

      Haha, it's big news when Nintendo shows off how its next-gen console will eventually, in the future (whenever the WiiU comes out), start to catch up with a few current-gen games.

        Wii U is not next-gen. Wii U is current-gen. Nintendo will have two consoles within this current generation and likely replace the Wii U by the time games are no longer made for the Xbox 360 and PS3.

          If the Wii belongs to this generation then by the same logic the Wii U is next-gen.

            I view Wii U as trying to fix mistakes like the woefully underpowered current Wii they released alongside significantly more powerful systems like the 360 and PS triple.

          WiiU is more like Current-Gen ½

          The Nintendo console after Wii U will be out in 2017. Nintendo machines are designed with a 5yr lifecycle in mind.

          They'll print money with Wii U imo.

            I don't see how. People were actually pretty excited about the Wii when it launched, despite the woohah over the name. Reaction to this has been lukewarm at best.

              I have a completely different memory of the pre-launch attitudes towards the Wii. It wasn't until it became a 'hard to get Christmas item' that anyone thought it was going to make an impact. There was a whole lot of 'Nintendo's dead' around 05 from the enthusiast crowd.

                The Wii made a huge splash at the E3 before its launch and there was a ton of hype from that point on. Certainly there were still a lot of nerds on the internet proclaiming its imminent failure, but that's hardly anything new.

            Yeah, another upgrade to the Wii Fit machine.

            i think a lot of people got burned on the wii, gamers i mean, not the "casual" audience.

            I bet midway through the cycle they'll release a new tablet that allows it to function as a typical mobile tablet (e.g., iPad).

            Honestly, if Nintendo were to have made that out of the box with a pretty impressive portable Wii Store (i.e., app store) then it would have been a huge system seller. I bet Microsoft does this - not include a tablet, but allow 3rd party manufactured Windows 8 tablets to sync to the next Xbox and have similar functionality.

          Wii U is next gen for Nintendo. Although based on what we know of the specs, it seems more like a catch-up console despite it being more powerful than the current Xbox and PS3.
