A Nintendo Direct was released today showing off mostly 3DS games, Wii U games, amiibo, DLC and much more. Now to get things started!
A 3D version of the Zelda classic Majora's Mask was announced as leaked by Target. Like its predecessor Ocarina of Time 3D, it features improved character models and stereoscopic 3D. The European release will feature a pin badge, double-sided poster and a steelbook.....whatever that it.
More about Hyrule Warriors was revealed including that the Link Amiibo figure will unlock the Spinner from Twilight Princess as DLC. This can also mean the figures of Zelda, Sheik, Ganondorf and Toon Link will get players something as well.
Tons of DLC has been revealed for Mario Kart 8 that involves other Nintendo franchises such as Zelda, F-Zero, Animal Crossing and Excitebike. Playable characters that will also be in are Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach, Link, Dry Bowser, Villager, Isabelle and multi-colored Yoshis and Shy Guys. The only character I'm sore with are Tanooki and Cat as they could've been costumes for Mario and Peach but it at least gives Nintendo a chance to expand the ever-controversial race roster.
Duck Hunt is officially revealed as a playable character for Smash 4 even though we've known that since the ESRB leaks. They also shown off a Duck Hunt themed stage for the Wii U version and a trophy representing the indie game BIT.TRIP, in which Nintendo published.
There will be several Wii U games to be compatible with Amiibo besides Super Smash Bros such as the already released Mario Kart 8 and Hyrule Warriors along with new titles like Captain Toad Treasure Tracker, Mario Party 10 and Yoshi's Woolly World.
3rd-party game Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate has plenty of DLC themed after other games such as Metroid, Zelda, Sonic and Mega Man. But the latest one has to be the Mario Bros suits for your Palico pal. We've had Mario as a cat and now we have a cat as Mario. What would PETA do about that, say cats are evil creatures that turn humans into clothing?
And that's all I can collect about the new Direct. Farewell, and keep on Smashing!
