Nintendo Direct 2/13/14.

#1 Edited by TERRANORT_FTW (4 posts) -

As long as the E3 one. Platinum Games, Sora, & Monolith Soft will probably be involved. (They have tweeted about it.) Right off of Wii U's January sales woes and January's lack of Nintendo Direct, two things Iwata is going to have to respond to. 5 pm Eastern.

Get ready, this one will be huge.

Project Sora? They dissolved after Uprising, didn't they?

I don't know, whoever still makes Smash. (Isn't it Sora, Ltd?)

It was Sakurai who tweeted.

Still hoping that Monolith game is gonna be Xenoblade 2.

Also, pretty sure Namco is making the new Smash Bros.

Oh, yeah, I forgot Bamco was making this one.

I knew that. *facepalm*

EDIT: I thought it's being co-developed by Sora & Bamco, though.

I mean, I'm pretty sure Sakurai's involved & he's not part of Bamco, right?

It is about spring games so I would not expect much beside Donkey Kong and Mario Kart.

Starts in a few minutes. Better have something interesting.

Got a feeling this is gonna suck.

Yep. This better not just be Donkey Kong and Mario Kart.

#11 Edited by Aegon (5852 posts) -

Oh damn, lil' Mac.

#12 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19388 posts) -

Haha, well, at least it's starting awesome.

#14 Posted by EuanDewar (5107 posts) -

I enjoy watching these even though I don't own any of the current Nintendo consoles. Props on getting Little Mac in smash, thats a pretty cool choice imo.

#15 Posted by Optix12 (625 posts) -

that little mac trailer was a really good start

#16 Edited by FluxWaveZ (19388 posts) -

Uh, not too sure I'm understanding this "good feeling" sentiment from this baseball game.

Holy crap, apparently Ace Attorney 6 was confirmed on the Japanese stream.

Nintendo of America dude is creeping me out

#19 Edited by Aegon (5852 posts) -

I don't think that's how weapon forging works.

#20 Posted by Steadying (1481 posts) -

@aegon: What are you talking about, of course it is.

Also, I might just check out this weird soccer RPG.

#22 Posted by Aegon (5852 posts) -

Huh, that Donkey Kong trailer is the first time I felt any sort of interest in the series. Looks cool.

Im wondering if there would be a discount for nes remix 2 if you bought the first one (i suspect not). Also cool GBA games now

#25 Posted by ManMadeGod (1587 posts) -

GBA games on WiiU is cool but......... those need to be on 3DS

#26 Posted by Steadying (1481 posts) -

Mario Kart 8 has got to be the prettiest game coming out on Wii U.

#27 Edited by Aegon (5852 posts) -

X!

That was pretty awesome.

A severe lack of mech lazer sword, though.

#28 Posted by Epidehl (329 posts) -

I never played Bayonetta (which I keep feeling like I should fix), but daaaamn that Bayonetta 2 footage was nuts.

Online
#29 Posted by Steadying (1481 posts) -

I wish we saw more of X than just a battle, but it's cool we saw it at all I guess. Overall, that was kinda meh.

#30 Posted by Optix12 (625 posts) -

i guess they will save wii u zelda for e3 (makes sense) as well as all the release dates that werent discussed today but stated to be released in 2014.

#31 Posted by Doskias (319 posts) -

It's probably not healthy, how glad I am to see Little Mac added to Smash. NES Remix vol 2 looks pretty all right, and I immediately want to know more about Monolithsoft's game.

Also, motorcycles are back in Mario Kart. I can take or leave the Koopalings, though.

#32 Posted by Turtlebird95 (2621 posts) -

Seems like Nintendo has taken a liking to free to play games. Just hope they don't go overboard.

Overall I thought this Direct was meh. The only thing that really caught my eye was that new Pokemon Trozei game. X looks kinda boring honestly.

#33 Posted by alanm26v5 (463 posts) -

They could have been a little forward thinking and made NES Remix a platform with content packs instead of releasing separate sequels. Also I can't believe I'm saying this but I'd rather play those GBA titles on 3DS.

#34 Posted by Darji (5293 posts) -

Somehow I can not find a HD video. The YouTube one I found had very bad quality. Can anyone link me to some X HD footage please?

#35 Posted by oldenglishC (1008 posts) -

So is that Inazuma 3?

#36 Posted by crithon (3458 posts) -

Bayonetta 2 looks wonderful.

Sorry can not watch it because the fucking German Gema claimed this video......

I only have this video but this can not be HD or? It looks really strange in 720P

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BdQg43n2OaM

This is not a bash but a serious question. Is it because of my Pc? It looks really strange and not "clean"

#39 Edited by Generic_username (636 posts) -

Ace Attorney 6. Please please please localize it.

Bayonetta 2 still looking like an early contender for the next Game of the Generation.
