I really want to buy a 3DS XL. Mario Tennis, Luigi's Mansion, Super Mario Land, etc. they all sound awesome!

Posted by Sordel

People always act as though Nintendo is just Mario & Zelda, but it's interesting how they consistently use the early period of a new console to bring back and strengthen old/minor IP. Luigi's Mansion, Pikmin, Kid Icarus ... all significant little jabs until they have roundhouse titles available in their major fanchises.

Luigi is a perv

Posted by BoOzak

I always preferred Luigi too, probably something to do with being the younger brother. It's stuff like this that makes me want to buy a 3DS but I just dont see the appeal of playing these games out in the open. And the concept of playing them indoors with a big HDTV in front of me just seems strange.

Luigi's on top and he hasn't even done anything yet!

Mario and Luigi 4? Set inside of Luigi's delusional mind?

And many copies of sticker star were traded in that day.

And many BisonHeroes were happy that they firmly resisted the urge to buy Sticker Star. Now I can redirect that money towards the Mario-based RPG series that Nintendo isn't totally fucking up.

Seriously though, everything I've read and seen makes it seem like they stripped everything remarkable or clever out of Paper Mario, and it's pretty much for babies now.

Glad to see we're finally getting New Leaf, I want that game so bad!

3DS is becoming a tempting proposition, but I don't know. I owned a DS and only played a handful of games on it because I had no reason to play a portable system, even if I like the games.

Posted by Branthog

Buh. I've been hearing "This is finally the year of Luigi on the desktop!" for about as long as I've heard that "FreeBSD is dying!".

The wait for Animal Crossing has been unbearable. I haven't played an AC game since the Gamecube, so I'm really excited about it. Really hoping it sucks my girlfriend in the way the first one did me. We'll be picking up 2 copies on launch.

Luigi is the reason ill buy a new handheld this year!

Posted by BatmanBatman

I too really like Luigi, but really came here to say that Iwata looks funny..

Posted by capthavic

Always like Luigi better too. He takes a lot of crap for being a coward and slow, when he is just more cautious (because hey maybe blindly rushing into dangerous situations may not be the best idea) and has a good heart. Whenever Mario has needed help or even rescuing himself, Luigi is always there to help his older brother no matter what.

Here's looking forward to a year of more Luigi games ^^

Posted by marbleCmoney

I am very pro-Luigi.

Edited by Tordah

Hell yeah, Luigi. I'm really looking forward to that Luigi's Mansion game even though I don't own a 3DS.

Posted by sirdesmond

New Leaf getting a set date combined with Fire Emblem: Awakening, Monster Hunter (still incoming), and Luigi's Mansion coming soon made me go out and pick up a 3DS XL today (big hands) and I am loving it and especially loving Fire Emblem.

As a former owner of a launch 3DS, I never would have expected Nintendo to turn around the 3DS since launch as much as they have. It's a really great system at this point. Now if only they would talk to someone about releasing Fantasy Life over here in the States.

Who needs PS4 when you've got Year of Luigi?

Looking forward to all the greats.. Luigi's Mansion 3, Mario is Missing 2, Mario Luigi 3DS... can't wait!

Posted by probablytuna

A Donkey Kong game would be nice, even if it's just a remake.

Posted by captainanderson

More 3DS news is good news for me, considering I just dropped over $200 on the Fire Emblem bundle. Hopefully all these great first party games are translating into actual sales for the system.

2014: Year of the Toad.

Make it happen, Iwata.

Posted by CaptRocketblaze

Luigi was always my favorite. You finally made it, buddy... your own year!

Posted by Carlos1408

I'm liking the "year of Luigi!" :D

They did a couple of weeks ago. Lots of games announced and talked about. More at E3. They know.

114 days until New Leaf!

Edited by BisonHero

Oh sweet, Nintendo is making an RPG for the 3DS that isn't for babies. Seriously, Paper Mario: Sticker Star, you could not be more disappointing. You are a disgrace to the memory of Thousand Year Door.

Posted by avid8bit

@Alex, does this apply? I know it does for me and my little brother.

Posted by CurtMan2k7

awesome love the Mario and Luigi games, as well as Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, and hoping we get some info on the Namco produced Super Smash Brothers soon

Edited by Deathpooky

I wonder if the new Xbox/PS will continue to spend time and money developing and hyping features that are obviously far better on a laptop or one of 7 other devices most people have handy at this point. Stick to what matters. Luigi is what matters.

3DS looks like it's increasingly becoming worth getting this spring, especially with last year's price drop. Wii U, not so much.

Posted by Fitzgerald

Thus making WiiU even closer to being the Gamecube reincarnated.

Posted by brownsfantb

Man, there's so many good games coming out this year for the 3DS. We already have Fire Emblem and Luigi's Mansion will be out in a month. Now we're getting both a new Animal Crossing and a new Mario & Luigi in the summer. Year of the 3DS?

Mario and Luigi 4? Set inside of Luigi's delusional mind?

Posted by RioStarwind

The Nintendo Direct before this one made me want a WII U and this one confirms that the 3DS is going to be awesome this year. Having a year full of Luigi related games sounds awesome to me heh.

Posted by BlatantNinja23

The 3DS is really turning into a great machine. I've wanted a new Mario Golf for awhile now, and I didn't play Donkey Kong on the Wii so i'll totally pick that up. So now I guess.... Do i upgrade to a 3DS XL, or is an actual redesign coming soon? Cause if the do a new 3DS that's just a small screen upgrade from the original, but more importantly the quality of the build is much better and the battery is better I think id rather have that.

Just so people stop spamming my inbox, yes I know the said that two new zelda games are eventually coming. Whoopdy shit.

Edited by MonkfishEsq

I expected nothing but heartbreak but Nintendo Europe fucking knocked it out of the PARK. Next 4 months are going to be fucking amazing.

Posted by NeoAthanasius

They are obviously waiting until E3 to announce more WiiU stuff. Right? Right? Please tell me I'm right!

Posted by coakroach

I... I think I need a 3DS

Edited by RichieJohn

They just did a Wii U direct! Why are people complaining about a lack of Wii U in a 3DS direct?

Didn't they just announce Wii U games two weeks ago? Wind Waker HD, Xenonew, Yoshi's Epic Yarn... etc.

Edited by Slax

I've been thinking about getting a 3ds, and this year I might have to. What's wrong with owning all the handhelds...

Posted by sprode

Nintendo pretty much owns my wallet this year.

Only way it could be worse would be if they had any WiiU announcements.

Posted by steelerzfan101

I was hoping for some more Wii U news but oh well. Luigi had his spotlight. (They also released a lot of Wii U info in the last Nintendo Direct so that may be why...)

New Mario Brothers: Luigi's Mario Mansion confirmed for 3DS

Edited by RecSpec

All of this news is amazing. Goddamnit I'm so excited.

Posted by Kosayn

People sure love them some Mario & Luigi RPG... Inside Story was my nephew's most played DS game, and I still see it a lot out there streetpassing. Hopefully this will have a more rewarding combat system than Sticker Star, though the short timeframe gives me some pause.

This is what happens when people read news synopsis from Alex. They talked about a few 3rd party Wii U games during the Direct (Alex just didn't say anything about it), but they did a full Wii U Nintendo Direct a few weeks ago where they announced a pretty decent amount of games. The Wind Waker remake, the new Xeno game, Fire Emblem x Shin Megami, and the usual smattering of Nintendo "once per generations".

Alex also failed to mention the new eShop games they announced, the rhythm game from Game Freak seems especially neat.

Posted by Vasta_Narada

@hef: @winternet: They just did a WiiU-focused Nintendo Direct a couple weeks back...?
