Just a few minutes ago, Steel Diver Sub Wars was shown off at Nintendo Direct. But while the likes of its ‘contemporaries’ (aka Super Smash Bros 4, Mario Kart 8 and Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze) looked absolutely amazing and even the most minor other titles were at least interesting for their fanbase, part of me wondered a simple question. Who the hell actually wanted a sequel to Steel Diver?
Well, it’s that time again! So watch the videos below to see tonight’s Nintendo Directs in action, or follow the action on our live blog (assuming it ends before about 11:30 PM). Click past the break for more… Nintendo Direct streams: Japan Europe North America Are you excited?
Yeah, you probably expected it, didn’t you? After all, a new Donkey Kong Country game days away from being released? Smash Bros needing more information given out? Kirby, Yoshi’s New Island and other such games in general? A Nintendo Direct was long overdue, and this one is focused on 3DS and Wii U games. Still, it’s confirmed for 10pm GMT, which means there’s a good chance I won’t be able to cover the event a whole lot due to things like work and other such priorities. Yeah, great timing there Nintendo. You had just two days til the weekend (and one day more til Friday), and you chose a day on which most people will be stuck at either work, […]
Well, they technically did this at about 2pm yesterday, but I had enough to write about with all the 3DS games and Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, hence why I’m posting the official news post now. Either way, it’s a rather interesting new Legend of Zelda spinoff which mixes the world of said franchise with the gameplay of the Dynasty Warriors series, so keep reading to find out more!
Another game which was shown at today’s Nintendo Direct, Yoshi’s New Island got a surprising amount of content even with the lesser hype that came with it. With a new trailer, artwork and the announcement that one of the original designers of Yoshi’s Island SNES was involved, the game went from being a bit of a disappointment to one that could actually be pretty good! Step inside to find out more!
It’s been way, way overdue now (the game has had literally no updates of importance since its announcement at E3 this year), but now Nintendo has finally shown a new trailer for Mario Kart 8. And boy does this game look fantastic!
It’ll cover 3DS and Wii U games, and will be worldwide, indicating that it’ll be a major event with all sorts of new reveals. The time will be 2PM GMT. Anyone excited? Source: http://mynintendonews.com/2013/12/17/nintendo-direct-coming-tomorrow-december-18
With the game coming out in just under a month’s time, it should have been no surprise to anyone that The Legend of Zelda A Link Between Worlds got some fairly decent coverage in today’s Nintendo Direct (especially given how it’s the only big 3DS release between now and the end of the year in Europe). So read on to see the trailers and videos Nintendo released of it during this event, as well as my trailer ‘analysis’ and comments!
