The first game comes from the same team that helped make the original Wii such a success. Nintendo EAD Tokyo, the creators of Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2, are hard at work on a new 3D Mario adventure that will be exclusive to Wii U. If it's anything like the Galaxy games then it's a must-see attraction at E3 no matter what Sony and Microsoft bring to the show.
The other game is a new entry in the Mario Kart franchise for Wii U. This was given and it's hard to imagine Wii U can bring that much more to the franchise than what the last 3DS version did, especially since both systems utilize a second screen. Either way it will be playable at E3 and, I'm guessing here, will be in stores before 2013 is out.
Look for more on these big new Wii U games in the coming months.
