Watch Nintendo Direct Here!
Here is the entire Nintendo Direct presentation that took place this morning. As you can see there is a lot of fanfare attributed to the 3DS and they are delivering with a great amount of content. I am most excited for the new Mario Golf, which I had spent countless hours trying to get my girl to play with me.
Of course the pinnacle of the event is the announcement of Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon which is scheduled for release on March 24th. They have some other great titles shown like Animal Crossing New Leaf, and Mario and Luigi: Dream Team.
Game Freak also announced a game that is not Pokemon!?! It is called Harmo Knight and it looks like it plays like a line runner game for iOS but it adds a new element of having a musical rhythm elemnt which has to be seen to fully comprehend.
Looks like 2013 will be the year of Luigi.
In Wii U news they have announced a new bundle pack which will give you Zombie U, Nintendo Land, a Pro Controller and the Delux Set Console for $389.99.
They also announced some new downloadable titles like a new BIT.TRIP Runner 2 and Zen Pinball.
Finally, we have a release date for Monster Hunter 3 ultimate which is March 19th. This version will allow you to cross play with 3DS owners and also transfer your save data between each version.
