Nintendo practically took over last night’s Game Awards, with Reggie Fils Aime, Nintendo of America COO, opening the show alongside Nintendo’s Beethoven of video games, Koji Kondo, composer of the music for most of the company’s legendary titles.
They used the opportunity to provide some updates to two of their 2015 releases – the yet to be titled Zelda game for Wii U and ‘Mario Maker’ for the same console.
They showed off some of the first gameplay footage for Zelda, with lead producer Eiji Aonuma at the controls while Zelda creator Shigeru Miyamoto asked questions. The video is an intriguing look into what will undoubtedly be a great game. We get to see Link riding a horse and exploring the huge open-world map – a first for Zelda.
There was also ‘Mario Maker’. Obviously a less significant title compared to Zelda, but one that will definitely be a lot of fun. Here we get to see more detail of what the game will entail, courtesy of Miyamoto-san.
