Video: The Edited Highlights Of This Week's Nintendo Direct

Posted by Damien McFerran

All killer, no filler

This week's Nintendo Direct presentation was packed with amazing info, but with a running time of almost 40 minutes, it might have been a little bit on the long side for many impatient Nintendo fans.

But fear not — Nintendo Life Video Features Editor Rory Cocker has sifted through the footage and pulled together the prime cuts to create this delightful highlights package, allowing you to soak up all the salient data without having to expend too much of your valuable time.

How about using the minutes you've saved to reacquaint yourself with The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, before its sequel launches later in the year?

By the way, we'd love to hear your feedback on this video — would you like to see more of this kind of thing in the future? Drop a comment to tell us what you think.

Nice video, guys. Good job. I Wouldn't mind seeing more of this. (Except for whatever all that was from 4:57 to 5:38) You guys should do video reviews of games as well.

Nice idea. I think I missed the joke where there were sound effects and the Luigi's and Iwata repeating.

Wow i like the video feature. keep up the humor! i think in addition to the great monolog you good people should do candid discussion or group reactions audio to the gameplay footage too! Hearing Thomas W vocalize his excellent logic would be great!

@Pixelroy Not to give too much away, but we may or may not be in preliminary discussions to bring back the Nintendo Life podcast. But I never said that. You never saw me. I was never here. Swoosh.

Now this is something I could show my Big Bro. He doesnt have the time or attention span to see the whole 37 minute Direct, so this is a nice summary!

I like the recap video idea. Would definitely appreciate more of these in the future.

I'm confused: I thought Earthbound was only stated to come out sometime this year, with no specific date given, but this video says it will be available shortly after the spring system update?

Thanks for making this. I have to say though Rory Cocker sounded a bit too much like Brad Pitt in Snatch so I had to watch it muted.

No wait, it was Spud in Trainspotting. "My pleasure, is other peoples leisure." Watched that movie at least half a dozen times before I understood that line.

@ngamer155 not only was the video over 30 minutes, but that was because he has a hard time speaking English, if he didn't this could have easily been just over 20 minutes. I think him having a hard time speaking English made it harder to watch than the video length

@Radbot42 You had a hard time understanding Iwata? I guess some people just need to get used to him, because I can hear Iwata very clearly in this Nintendo Direct.
