A brilliantly executed MK8 Direct on many levels. The part about the music was excellent!

The variety and unpredictability of the past game-specific Directs has been great fun to watch and still gives lots of info without too many spoilers.

Current Top 15: Splatoon, MK8, Tropical Freeze, Pikmin 3, Terraria for Wii U, Super Mario Maker, Affordable Space Adventures, SM3DW, Yoshi's Woolly World, Twilight Princess:HD, Stealth Inc. 2, LEGO City: Undercover, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Runbow, Bayonetta 1+2

I thought it was great but can sb explain why NA has fewer free games to choose from than europe? What's the reasoning behind that? (I'm from europe so I dont care but still.. kinda weird:P)

They did a great job with everything in the direct here man!!!!!!!!!!

A bundle that gives you two games, Online and the so far fantastic soundtrack ever in a racing game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

granted I'm not into racing games and I still have yet to get the Wii U but this game will be the one that will boom the sales!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

my 3ds friend code is 1461-7634-1658

creativity is the insane possibility.

I's guess its because the Wii U is doing the worst in europe and the system is being phased out of shelf and getting deep discounts.

WAT!

Awesome Direct! Love the Spin Boost, looks like fun to execute. The "Memories of Mario Kart" segments were funny, especially the last one about mother

Well, I'm finally going to get Pikmin 3 now. I would have picked W101 if that was available in NA. But no complaints from me about a free game.

To blessed to be stressed.
80's music makes me feel fabulous.

Anybody else notice Audrey Drakes voice at the 22:00 mark during the US Direct? She use to be the main IGN reviewer for all things Nintendo for a few years until she left sometime in 2013, kinda a Nintendo fan fav at IGN.......I suppose she is working for NOA these days.

What is the treehouse? Like NOA marketing? The current IGN Nintendo podcasts are pretty decent, I like the old German guy.

Anyways I hope they use the Youtube feature in their future games, was surprised to hear about this in this direct.

I always thought they were like the Super Mario 64 club. Just a group of hired employees to play-test and localize games?

The Treehouse is the Product Development division for Nintendo of America.

Formally called brewsky before becoming the lovable, adorable Yoshi.
Now playing:
Super Mario Maker (Wii U) | Yoshi's Woolly World (Wii U) | The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes (3DS)

Wait, the NA division actually makes their own games? I thought they just localized games made from the japan division, lol.

Nope. They localize games for North America and produce marketing strategies. They also help with fine tuning the games, but aside from that, no game development.

EDIT: Things do change over time, though, as was proved a couple posts later.

Wrong guess, try again.
