At Nintendo’s E3 press conference the company revealed detailed information about their upcoming home gaming console, the Wii U, and announced a whopping 23 new titles.

The biggest title announced during Nintendo’s presentation was New Super Mario Bros. U, the sequel to the extremely popular New Super Mario Bros. on the Wii. The title features a multiplayer mode and makes unique use of the Wii U’s touch screen-based tablet controller. It also allows the player to receive messages in-game through Nintendo’s new social system, the Miiverse.

Pikmin 3, a title that allows the player to control small plant-like creatures, was also announced by Nintendo at the event. The game is playable with the Wii U tablet controller as well as the Wii’s Wiimote and Nunchuck.

It was also revealed that the Wii U will support the use of two tablet controllers simultaneously. At last year’s E3 Nintendo announced that the console would only support the use of one touch screen tablet controller, which caused concern for fans.

Wii Fit U, a new fitness title that uses the Wii’s balance board and the built-in camera on the Wii U’s touch screen, was also announced, along with Lego City, an open world Grand Theft Auto-esque lego title aimed at a younger audience.

In handheld announcements, New Super Mario Bros for the Nintendo 3DS was given an August 19th release date. A new Paper Mario title for the 3DS, dubbed Paper Mario: Stick Star, was also revealed.
