Some key DS games announced: Mario & Luigi 3, Picross 3D, a new Final Fantasy:CC for both DS and Wii with connectivity.

Wii Software: Punch Out (fuck YES!), Sin & Punishment 2, Pikmin (not sure if this is a new sequel or just a remake with Wii controls)

Nintendo's site with video montages of the new DS and Wii lineup:
Updates and clarifications:

Only the bottom screen is touch. :(

Launching in the USA late next year, Nintendo still wants to sell through a lot of regular DS hardware.

Pikimin on Wii is just a re-release of the GC one with Wii controls (wtf? lameness Nintendo.)

Well here's a reel of a lot of upcoming games. That's a hella lot haha. This is certainly better than their E3 show I'll say that much. Oh, and FUCK YEAH for Little Mac! buttrock.gif

What the hell is this? Sega has truly gone mad. How this even works is beyond me.

At least CAVE STORY is coming to Wiiware, best announcement ever

I don't know but if all the music in the game sounds like that I might just pick it up!
I'll give it a chance since this is like Yuji Naka's first game since forever.

That reminds me way too much of Track and Field + power pad.
think i'll finally pick up a DS. I've been waiting for the next gen hand held to come out from nintendo since the DS has been out for a while, but i might as well pick this one up. They'll probably release the DSII or something like a couple months after i buy this lol.
Terrible cam-footage of the Monster Hunter 3 Wii trailer.

none the less the new monster hunter looks sweet as hell! :D
