Nintendo refuses to let their handheld take a back seat in this year’s E3, so even with all the Wii U announcements and trailers, we’re still getting to feast our eyes on some upcoming 3DS titles. Shin Megami Tensei IV has a new trailer – which you can see above – and with it comes a bolder voice-over to capture the demonic atmosphere. With a booming voice that says ‘the choices you make will no longer bear only on you’, we’re definitely in for some beastly samurai action. Shin Megami Tensei IV releases on July 16 for North America for the Nintendo 3DS, but a European date still alludes us.
Nintendo has released the Mario & Luigi: Dream Team E3 trailer, which you can watch above. The game features similar gameplay to previous Mario & Luigi games, and it introduces new moves and characters. Mario & Luigi: Dream Team will be released in Europe on July 12th and in North America on August 11th – exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS.
If you were looking forward to seeing Nintendo’s favourite and only little green dinosaur again, then look no further because Yoshi’s New Island is as cute as a button. The trailer, revealed at E3 today, features Baby Mario and Yoshi jumping and floating through levels, as well as eating enemies to spit them back out (the other side) by laying eggs. And if that wasn’t enough you can even use a new ability and hurtle huge eggs across the level to destroy obstacles in your way. Yoshi’s New Island features many new worlds in an array of art styles, and will launch sometime this holiday season.

Ubsioft’s E3 trailer for its highly anticipated Watch Dogs has leaked online ahead of the company’s E3 presentation which takes place tomorrow.
