Nintendo released one of its Direct Internet video shows earlier today, and — as usual — it’s packed with trailers for the publisher’s upcoming games.

The company didn’t announce any new titles, but it’s hyping up the release of games like Earthbound, Splinter Cell: Blacklist, and The Wonderful 101 for the Wii U and Mario & Luigi: Dream Team for 3DS. Check ’em all out below.

Earthbound

Earthbound is a Super Nintendo game that originally debuted in 1995. It has a loyal following that desperately wants to see more from the series. It’s available now on the Wii U eShop for $10.

Watch On Demand

Splinter Cell: Blacklist

The latest in the Ubisoft stealth-action series inspired by Tom Clancy’s books. It will hit Wii U (and Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC) on Aug. 20. It reboots the Splinter Cell franchise with a younger Sam Fisher.

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team

It’s the fourth entry in the Mario & Luigi role-playing-game franchise. This time, the Mario brothers must delve deep into the dreams of Luigi. Players use the bottom screen to manipulate the younger brother’s face, which has a corresponding effect in the dream world. It debuts for the 3DS on Aug. 11 for $40.

The Wonderful 101

This is one of the most anticipated non-Nintendo games for Wii U (although Nintendo is publishing it). The Wonderful 101 is a Pikmin-style game that has players controlling crowds of people that can transform into massive weapons to fight invading aliens. It is due out Sept. 15.
