Nintendo Focuses on Games at E3 with New ’Mario’

It's all about the games for Nintendo.

The Japanese gaming giant opted to showcase five games for its Wii U system at a brief Monday presentation at its booth instead of host a flashy presentation at the Electronic Entertainment Expo, the gaming industry's annual trade show.

Nintendo showed off the anti-gravity racer "Mario Kart 8," 2D platformer "Donkey Kong Country Returns: Tropical Freeze," 3D platformer "Super Mario 3D World," action sequel "Bayonetta 2" and a speedier rendition of "The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker."

Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime says he wants E3 attendees to focus on playing games.

The company has struggled with the launch of the Wii U, which features an innovative tablet-like controller yet graphics on par with Microsoft's Xbox 360 and Sony's PlayStation 3.
