I do hope they announce the GBA VC for the 3DS. It is about time. It's been what, two whole years since Ambassador? And a good surprise would be SNES VC for 3DS and GameCube VC for the Wii U, with a proper and decent version of Four Swords running through the game pad screen as the GBA. And I still have hopes for a Dreamcast VC on Wii U. Boy, wouldn't that be sweet? One can dream.

I was just told Japan is getting a direct. We could get some big news after all. Nintendo Network 3D and Fire Emblem spotpass maps are all I ask.

Ubisoft should be giving us 2 3DS VC and 2 Wii VC games for $1 as an apology for Rayman Legends. I think that is a true sorry, not some stupid demo for a game no one wants anymore.

I can deal with a June 9th release date for Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Glad they finally confirmed an actual release date now instead of later.

Mario VS. Donkey Kong: Minis On The Move , sounds like a fun title to try out for myself when it hits the eShop.

Well besides all the stuttering this has been a really good ND so far. Can't wait to see how it ends.

@rjejr: Mario & Luigi: Dream Team made this Nintendo Direct worth it imo. I mean, who doesn't love that RPG series.

Wait a min. , I thought they said before that Monster Hunter 3 for 3DS wouldn't have online play like how the one in Japan did?

I was really expecting at least the GBA games on 3DS VC. Guess we'll have to wait a little more. Maybe a lot more. Not disappointed at all, though. Great games are coming. That's a good thing.

TheEmerlLad said:

And that's a wrap! My initial thoughts:
Everything is looking pretty savvy making me more excited for monster hunter, Lugi's Mansion, The new Mario and Luigi Game, HarmoKnight, and so forth.

Getting to be a wonderful year for Nintendo!

This is the first Nintendo Direct that was actually great! A new Mario Golf (FINALLY) for the 3DS, Animal Crossing has a street date (FINALLY), and a new March of the Minis game. Plus sale eShop games. My birthday came early this year. :)

3DSLUIGI said:

How the heck can you bring over a game with Wii graphics to 3DS? I would have been happy if they had like a Donkey Kong 64 3D as a surprise announcement instead. I don't know if I like the idea of a game like Donkey Kong Country Returns being remade for 3DS.

SammyOfMobius said:

Awesome! Mario & Luigi Dream Team, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3DS remake, new eShop Mario vs. Donkey Kong sequel, Harmoknight, and New Super Luigi U? This is amazing! This was a great Nintendo Direct, thanks Nintendo! :D

why do people think miiverse is ever EVER going to show up on the 3ds? it's not powerful enough to support that much of a game suspension to load that many communities, plus there's no nintendo id setup for 3ds

Great Nintendo Direct. Lots of great 3DS games coming! The NSMBU DLC sounds fantastic?

So many great new games coming out... and the Wii U keeps getting better and better, with genuinely intuitive and different features like the Google Street View App being added as well as in-game miiverse interaction, I can't wait till Summer :)

^Oh wait, the DKCR game is a remake?? (can't see the video here at work).....well, that's cool too...was hoping for a new one.

This is the first Nintendo Direct I've ever watched...and it was incredible o_o! Aw man, I want like five of those games they announced. Gaming is such an expensive hobby :P
And yes yes yes, NEW CONTENT FOR STYLE SAVVY YES <333
I'ma get right on that ;D (I also want that new Fire Emblem character...).

3DSLUIGI said:

I will admit, Nintendo makes it feel like they abandoned E3 2013 with all the heavy hitting news they're bringing us lately. First the Wii U Direct not too long ago. And now this Nintendo Direct today. I really can't wait for Mario & Luigi: Dream Team , Mario Golf 3DS and Animal Crossing: New Leaf. TRULY gonna be a great year for Nintendo. ;)

lame no hint on 3ds miiverse or more pkm footage :( only good was luigis mansion and nsmbu dlc

@Marioman64

All the reason why I keep thinking Nintendo is abandoning the idea of even bringing Miiverse over to the 3DS in the long run. I mean, it's more better suited to run on Wii U than it is to run on 3DS imo. Not that I'm hating on the 3DS. That's just the way how I see this all playing out.

In case anybody is wondering - biggest difference between EU and US seems to be MH3U bundles (Wii U and 3DS) in the EU. Maybe the US will get them in 3 months.

Some great stuff. I'm a little burnt out on having so many games Mario related, and 3rd party support on Wii U still sounds pretty lackluster. Still great show, needs me some Dream Time.

I like how Reggie said Donkey Kong hasn't had a game of his own on 3ds, so they port his Wii game to it. Come on, give us some new content.

It was okay. Happy to see more titles to come but I felt it was a bit heavy on the Mario series. I was hoping for some localization

yeah it erked me too when they said there bringing the donkey kong game to the 3ds instead of a sequel or a new game of its own

Best news was Dream Team, which is the best Mario series now that Paper Mario got washed out.

I am pumped for Dillon's Rolling Western: the Last Ranger.

It kills me that Dillon's first outing got mixed reviews. Ratchet and Clank: Full Frontal Assault (QForce), a somewhat similar game for PS3, also got panned undeservedly. People seem to get all mad when they have to think during a game instead of just plowing straight forward. I hope they keep the tower defense aspects together for the Last Ranger.

I don't get why ppl are complaining about Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D on 3DS. It's not like this is the first time Nintendo did this, even back in the days, Donkey Kong Country was also ported to the handheld Game Boy (as Donkey Kong Land). DKCR on 3DS is a sweet deal, I just hope they got a sequel for the Wii U planned soon too. Also the new Mario & Luigi RPG had me excited now especially after the disappointing Paper Mario: Sticker Star.
