E3 2007 Nintendo Announcements

So E3 is going small this year with an invite only event which started this week. Lots of great Nintendo news is showing up online and here are some bits that caught my attention and/or makes me excited.

Nintendo announced this new game, can we still call them that at this point, called Wii Fit and its accompanying Balancing Pad Thingy (Pictured Above). It sounds like it's an exercise/Yoga game of sorts that will help you keep a regular routine and tracks your progress.

Sega revealed some screen shots of its up coming Maro & Sonic at the Olympic Games...

Sonic should win this one hands down right?!

I really hope they spend the time and energy to get the control right. This is one of the games I am looking forward to the most.

Activision showed off the new guitars for Guitar Hero 3 that are based on the glassic Gibson Les Paul style guitars. Among the upgrades for this version are the wireless guitar, original songs from the artist that created them (No longer the "as made famous by" covers), and online multiplayer and competition.
Some of the confirmed songs for the game are:
"Cherub Rock" - Smashing Pumpkins
"Even Flow" - Pearl Jam
"Knights of Cydonia" - Muse
"My Name Is Jonas" - Weezer
"Sabotage" - Beastie Boys
"Paint It Black" - The Rolling Stones
"Welcome to the Jungle" - Guns N' Roses

Last but certainly not least Nintendo announced that the new Super Smash Brothers would launch on December 3rd of this year!! I can't wait to play this game online with friends...
