While players wait for word on Nintendo’s next console, its mobile apps, and the long-anticipated next The Legend of Zelda, the company has unveiled a suite of new games and details on existing ones set to hit the Wii U and 3DS this year.

During its latest Nintendo Direct presentation, Nintendo debuted several new titles, including Paper Mario: Color Smash for the Wii U and Kirby: Planet Robobot for the 3DS. Color Smash returns the Paper Mario franchise to consoles with a trip to Prism Island, where Mario goes smashing around with his paint hammer to return color to the island by splashing paint everywhere. 

Planet Robobot puts a mechanized spin on Kirby’s classic gameplay, putting the adorable pink puff into giant robotic mech suits to save his home of Dream Land. The game will also include a four-player Team Kirby Clash mode, and introduce new Kirby amiibo figures, including a new version of Kirby and King Dedede.

The Nintendo Direct also showed off a new game coming alongside Star Fox ZeroStar Fox Guard. Check out more information on this new game here.

The Direct detailed a number of other upcoming games and updates to current favorites. Super Mario Maker will introduce new items for players to add to levels they build, more gameplay was shown from Metroid Prime: Federation Force, and games like Rhythm Heaven Megamix and Monster Hunter Generations were revealed for 3DS players in the U.S. Watch the full Direct below for details on all of these games and more.
