Experience 6 Minutes of Super Mario 3D World NowChristopher Metz

First and foremost, they show off all four playable characters (Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Toad) in action and how their individual powers can help the group succeed. Just how much higher does Luigi jump, or how much faster does Toad sprint than Mario? Next, tons of power-ups are shown, both from older and newer games in the series. The sheer number and variety of powers at the player’s disposal should make for some interesting playthroughs. Take, for example, the Koopa shell, sliding around levels and even into Warp Pipes, or the Shiny Tanooki Suit, which gives new players to the game a chance to blow through obstacles to the next stage. The possibilities are plentiful and definitely look to add replay value. One of the more interesting power-ups revealed, a Double Cherry, doubles or even triples your character simultaneously!

It’s not that we are surprised by this, but it does make our cravings for a decent, dance game to make a dent in our wallets. As projected by Ubisoft’s 2012 Earnings Presentation, a Just Dance will be making a Wii U appearance to the co-op scene.

There's this game series called Dragon Quest. You may have heard of it. Okay, tongue-in-cheek attitude aside, it's true - the upcoming Dragon Quest X will have online co-op. Players will be able to form parties to go forth and quest for dragons. Yes, it sounds like it'll basically be an MMO. It also has a somewhat ridiculously long subtitle: Dragon Quest X: Mezameshi Itsutsu no Shuzoku Online (which translates to Waking of the Five Tribes Online).
