Iwata apologizes again for the Zelda delay and announced a new title for Wii U, which will release in Winter 2015 instead:
 
Paper Mario (working title): first trailer shown, uses the best parts of the first four titles of the series, developed by Intelligent Systems, more infos at E3 2015.
 
Pokemon Rumble World will be presented, releases on April 17th 2015 in the Nintendo eShop for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. The game supports the Pokemon amiibo from the Smash Bros. Collection.
 
SNES titles will be released in the 3DS eShop, the Wii U eShop will get GB und GBC titles. There will also be some cross-play for VC titles already bought and which are available on both systems. (My note: If you bought one game on the 3DS, you can also play it on your Wii U. No need to buy it twice.)
 
The SNES, GB and GBC titles will be released after the presentation.
 
The Web eShop will be presented. Developed by Nintendo and DeNA. You can log in with your NNID and use the normal eShop functions. If the console is in stand-by, games bought on the eShop will be automatically downloaded. The Web eShop will implemented both the Wii U and 3DS eShop. Planned launch: April 2015.
 
New functions for the eShop: Pre-orders. Customers will be able to buy games months in advance and will get a 10% discount. The amount will be charged on launch day or the day the pre-load starts. The first games will be available following the presentation:
 
SplatoonKirby and the Rainbow PaintbrushCode Name: S.T.E.A.M.Puzzle & Dragons Z + Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition
 
amiibo Gallery will be presented. With this app, gamers can use their amiibo already used on the console, to look at them in a gallery. There you can take pictures of them and show them in Miiverse. There is also a mode called Origins. When you scan the amiibo via the NFC reader, you’ll be able to play a segment of the first game the amiibo appeared in. (My note: If you scan Link, you should be able to play a part of the first Legend of Zelda is my understanding of this.) This app will be available for free in May 2015 for Wii U and 3DS.
 
N64 games will be available in June 2015 in the Wii U eShop. Release list:
 
June 4th: Super Mario 64 and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (If you buy one of the games until June 11th 23:59 MEZ, you get the other for free.)June 11th: Kirby 64: The Crystal ShardsJune 18th: Super Smash Bros.June 25th: 1080° Snowboarding

I'm a little concerned that Nintendo is outsourcing this... I'm afraid it will just be the same ole iphone games but with a Mario skin. When instead we could have a port of Professor Layton or something like Kirby Mass Attack

"Our new business alliance with DeNA consists of two parts. One is to jointly develop and operate gaming apps that use Nintendo IP, for smart devices. The other is to build together Nintendo’s new online membership service."

Fortran
I think this is just Nintendo plating an oil rig in the mobile market, so to speak. No, I don't doubt for a second they don't give two *crag*s about quality. They know people with iPhones buy literally anything, they just want a piece of that cake for some extra money. Make no mistake, this outreach is purely for suckers. For all those neglected brats who got an iPhone and mommy's credit card thrown at them.
Super-Claus
echo that, and add to it the fact that they took express care to announce a currently conceptual piece of hardware just to confirm that they had no intent of leaving or giving ground in the hardware market. I honestly would be surprised if Nintendo left the hardware market at this point. The Wii U had a lot of reasons it didn't do well, but success comes with deficits just as much as it does rewards. You can't expect lightening to strike every single time, any company Nintendo's age knows this well, hence why Iwata wasn't kicked out the moment the Wii U didn't meet the same peaks as its predecessor.

I'm nearing my goal to get my $5 eShop credit!!! I've only had my Wii U system since April, so I guess that's the only credit I'll be able to use. Sadly, it only applies to digital purchases, and not discs. To earn points, you must make eshop purchases before December 31, 2014. The next few weeks are your last chance.

Who got the Wii U deluxe set? If so, did you participate in DDP? Even if not, what eShop games do you recommend?

Francis
Yeah, I even got credit for the free-game that came with Mario Kart 8. I use most of my eshop money for DLC and eshop exclusives, otherwise i'd rather get a game on disc. I recommend NES Remix but that will be on disc soon. Most eshop games are also on Steam, so unless they make good use of the gamepad, id rather get the Steam version because it will probably be cheaper in a big Steam sale or humblebundle.
