Full details on amiibo: RPG mechanics in Smash, 3DS adapter incoming photo
Full details on amiibo: RPG mechanics in Smash, 3DS adapter incoming
by Dale North

Nintendo Treehouse's Bill Trinen delivered more details on  their newly announced NFC figures, amiibo, directly following their E3 streaming event. He says that a variety of games will support these figures later this year, including Super Smash Bros., Mario Party 10, Captain Toad Treasure Tracker, Yoshi's Wooly World, and Mario Kart 8. Nintendo says that amiibo will bring new types of fun and new ways to interact with your favorite characters.

Super Smash Bros. on Wii U will be the first game to work with the first run of amiibo characters. Remember that opening video of Super Smash Bros. Meele? Remember how the figures came to life in that opening movie? That will be a reality later this year.

Epic space battles. Huge mecha. And a gorgeous Xenosaga-style art direction. Monolith Soft's new game is called Xenoblade Chronicles X and it looks absolutely stellar. Do want.

Hiroyuki Sawano, composer on numerous anime series like Attack on Titan, is handling the music on the upcoming Wii U project, which should be launching sometime in 2015.

Nintendo announces Kirby and the Rainbow Curse for Wii U

We just can't get enough Kirby, it seems. Nintendo announced Kirby and the Rainbow Curse for the Wii U today, which looks to be a clear follow-up to the DS title Canvas Curse. Not much is known at this point, but it looks like Kirby will have a ton of different forms to morph into, and the same stylus gameplay will be present.

Yoshi's Woolly World looks AMAZING photo
Yoshi's Woolly World looks AMAZING
by Jordan Devore

At Nintendo's E3 Digital Event, Good-Feel gave us a long-awaited progress update on Yarn Yoshi, and it's without a doubt the Yoshi game we've been waiting for all these years. It's now called Yoshi's Woolly World and is set for release on Wii U next year.

Good-Feel wanted to create a new type of Yoshi game filled with the same kinds of elements from the adorable Kirby's Epic Yarn, but this time, the world has proper depth, visually.

Much of the focus has been placed on exploration, specifically by way of Yoshi's unique abilities and, going a step further, a two-player mode. Both players are Yoshi -- one red, one green -- and can eat and spit each other out to reach new areas. I'm in love.

Wow. No Man's Sky looks stellar. And it's launching first on PlayStation 4, at least when it comes to consoles. It's a little hard to believe something this pretty was developed by a tiny indie studio that just got flooded out of their offices. My hat is off to you, Hello Games.

Ubisoft announces Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege photo
Ubisoft announces Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege
by Brett Zeidler

Ubisoft closed off its E3 press conference with the announcement of a brand-new game, Rainbow Six Siege. The demo shown featured a 5v5 multiplayer session that had one team holding a citizen hostage and barricading the house they were in from the team that was tasked with invading and saving said citizen.

The invading team had a map of the house, a drone to scope the inside, and finally decided to breach the home after dropping in from a helicopter. They blasted a giant hole through the wall, and many more after that. Destruction looks incredible in this. The hostage was swapped between teams, and the house continued to get demolished with another breach happening through the top of the floor. That was rad. You can check out the rest for yourself in the video above.

Rainbow Six Siege will release next year for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
