New Yoshi, 3D Mario, and Mario Kart games for Wii U were announced during today's Nintendo Direct webcast.

Good-Feel, the developer of Wario Land: Shake It! and Kirby's Epic Yarn, is giving the "epic yarn" treatment to Yoshi's world for the dinosaur's first solo platforming adventure since Yoshi's Story. The webcast included a few seconds of game footage that featured Yoshi and Shy Guys made of yarn.

Nintendo President Satoru Iwata also revealed that the team behind the Mario Galaxy series and Super Mario 3D Land are developing the new Mario 3D action game.

No footage for the new 3D Mario or Mario Kart games was shown, but Iwata said that both will be playable at this year's E3.
