Nintendo's pre-E3 conference Wii line-up was just big-name game after big-name game, with Zelda, Mario and Metroid Prime all putting in an appearance.

We've managed to capture the first footage of these famous franchises in motion - and plenty of new names, too - in these two high quality movies. And you can see them all simply by right-clicking each of the links above and downloading the movies.

The first clip focuses more on happy, smiling, ethnically diverse souls demonstrating how easy it is to play with the Wii-mote, while the second slice of footage concentrates more on the official products and third-party releases already set to appear on Wii. And with 27 of these games playable on the E3 show floor, remember to stay tuned for our hands-on impressions, which should be along very shortly.
