E3 2014: Nintendo has two whole new games, and Jack Kirby aliens

Nintendo's digital event this year was probably the most interesting one it's had in a while as it announced a few new games and franchises. Plus, the company now seems keen to mock itself with Robot Chicken segments, references to the Luigi Death Stare and Reggie officially saying the word "ass." This is despite ever tightening restrictions on its public relations officials.

Among the games that attracted attention, a new Zelda, a new Star Fox and a new Yoshi's Island all got top billing. The two new franchises are a surprising departure for Nintendo, as again, it reaches into absurdity to create intruiging premises.
