In an hour long show reel Nintendo showed off their late 2015 and early 2016 games lineup.

With the publisher previously announcing that Zelda on Wii U would be delayed until 2016, it did not feature in the event at all.

Instead, we were treated to a lengthy gameplay trailer for Starfox Zero on Wii U with transforming vehicles and dual screen gamepad controls to add additional gameplay mechanics to the well loved franchise.

The theme of the event was ‘transformation’ and to highlight the change in how the company handles their IP, Nintendo announced a partnership with Activision for Skylanders SuperChargers – exclusive characters and vechicles for the Wii U version of the game that act as both Skylanders characters and amiibo with a twist of the base.

With the game already released in Japan, it was highly expected that Xenoblade Chronicles X would get some new gameplay footage and a western release date, and Nintendo did not disappoint in that department. In a new and exciting trailer showing off combat, mech warfare and planet surface exploration, it ended with a 4th Dec 15 release date.

Among the other new highlights was The Legend of Zelda: Triforce Heores, Hyrule Warriors Legends, Yo-Kai Watch and Fire Emblem Fates, all on 3DS, Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash, Animal Crossing Amiibo Festival on Wii U.
