A number of unannounced games were revealed at Nintendo’s E3 Press Conference, while new information of others came to light.

The Tekken series is making its way to Nintendo’s 3DS, although other than a brief glimpse and the Tekken 3D title reveal, nothing more was said. Mario Kart 3D, set for release later this year, was also shown off, and in a series first it will feature hang-gliders for your racing karts to glide though the air as well as underwater sections. There will also be some sort of kart building and customisation options. There was also the announcement that Super Smash Bros. will be coming to the 3DS in the future, and it will apparently somehow work in conjunction with the Wii U version. LEGO City Stories was also announced for 3DS and Wii U, and is described as an open-world LEGO game. Finally, would you like to hear some Mario news? Well, here you go then: Super Mario 3D will apparently be released before the year is out, and Luigi is also returning in his own game: Luigi’s Mansion 2 on 3DS, the sequel to the GameCube original.

It has also been confirmed that Kid Icarus: Uprising will contain multiplayer options, of which will be three-on-three contests. Something about augmented reality cards was also mentioned. Star Fox 3D, on the other hand, captures your multiplayer opponents facial reactions with the 3DS’ camera it was revealed, and the gyroscopic controls were also shown off.
