  Nintendo's E3 games come to the UK
Updated 13 June 2003, 18.34
Mario Kart: Double Dash
Mario Kart: Double Dash

Nintendo has given a sneak peek of some of its games planned for UK release later this year and I was lucky enough to give them a go!

Of all the games on show, my favourite was Mario Kart: Double Dash, out this autumn.

I was impressed by the new tactics of having two characters in each kart and being able to switch between them mid-race.

If you've played other Mario racing games you'll feel at home with the controls but you might find the early levels a bit too easy.

The bigger screen

Nintendo's new device lets you play your GameBoy games through your GameCube.

The GameBoy Player plugs into the bottom of the console and should be in the shops from 20 June.

The picture from the little carts looks good on a regular TV, but I'm not sure how popular this will be.

Many people like the GameBoy because you can play it when someone else wants to use the television or when you're out and about.

The verdict

It looks like there'll be lots of great multiplayer games to have fun with friends, but many are just improved versions of titles you already know.
