The two Zelda games announced include a remake of GameCube game, The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker and a brand new Zelda game.
The new Mario game will be a 3D Mario action game for the Wii U. The game is being developed by the Nintendo EAD Tokyo Software Development team who created the Super Mario Galaxy games and Super Mario 3D Land.
After over ten years of waiting Yoshi will finally be getting his own game.

According to the Nintendo Direct presentation, the new Yoshi game will be set in a world of yarn and textiles.
