Nintendo’s E3 2014 showing has revealed a few new projects created by Shigeru Miyamoto and footage has surfaced of him showcasing two of them. Say hello to Project Giant Robot and Project Guard, coming to Wii U in 2015.

Nintendo has also sent us some details on both games, by way of these official synopses:

  • Project Giant Robot: Lets players use the touch screen to build a giant robot. Once complete, the GamePad becomes a cockpit from which players control the robot as they try to knock opponents over. A unique combination of button and motion control adds leverage and momentum to their robotic punches. The game is scheduled for the first half of 2015.
  • Project Guard: The goal is to stop a robot invasion using a security system of 12 cameras as a last line of defense. Players mount a dozen security cameras around a perimeter before the invasion, and then monitor all 12 as the robot army invades. Cameras also can blast lasers, so players must look, search and shoot quickly if they want to survive the onslaught. The innovative use of the two-screen game play makes for a thrilling spectator experience, allowing anyone in the living room to join in on the fun as an additional set of eyes. The game is scheduled for 2015.

Nintendo also revealed a new The Legend of Zelda open world title for Wii U in 2015. Hit the link for all of the details and a reveal trailer.

    Project Guard looks like really fun and chaotic. Sadly the Giant Robot one looks gimmicky and tedious :(

    I love the games that Nintendo make generally, but listening to them all talking complete bullshit and faking joy really makes me sick. It’s no wonder Nintendo have a tenuous grip on reality when the company has such a strong yes-man culture.

    Neither of those games looks substantive enough to me, even as part of a mini-game compilation.

    And just so nobody mistakes me for a fanboy, I have a massive wood for Pushmo, Zelda and the Yoshi Yarn game. Maybe Miyamoto has finally lost it…
