I'm really feeling it!

Nintendo News Explosion! - Wrap Up

Just in case you missed it, there was a Nintendo Direct today that focused on the 3DS and Wii U Spring offerings. Here's what you should know (and be excited about).


- Pokemon Bank and PokeTransporter: Both are coming on December 27th and feature a free month-long trial. If you access these features by September 30th, 2014 there's a free Celebi waiting for you.


- Chibi-Robo Photo Finder: Coming on January 9th, Photo Finder features everyone favorite tiny robot taking pictures of real world items and helping random people. What a kind gent.

- Kirby Triple Deluxe: Two new modes were shown, as well as Kirby's powerful new Hypernova ability. The game will have over 20 copy abilities and is coming in 2014.

- Bravely Default: Players will soon be able to download a special demo of the game that actually features an exclusive story line. The game will be released on Feb 7th and there will be a $50 special edition available.

- Yoshi's Island 3DS: Still coming next year and still looking kinda odd graphically. It's like they wanted to keep the artsy look, but also wanted to make it pop like class DKC. Funky.


Wii U

- DKC: Tropical Freeze: More footage was shown of all the kongs (Donkey, Diddy, Dixie and Kranky) in action, as well as revealing that Funky Kong will make a return as your item manager. Tropical Freeze is hitting stores on Feb 21st.


- Wii Sports Club: Golf has been added ($10) and features special gameplay that involves the game pad.

- Dr. Luigi: It's like Dr. Mario, only better, you know because it has Luigi! Look out for some special L shaped pills. It'll run you $15 and be out on the 31st of December.


- Sonic Lost Worlds: SLW has added some Yoshi themed DLC, and it appears Zelda DLC is coming in early 2014.

- NES Remix: In bizarre Wario Ware style, NES Remix has you completing quick challenges within classic NES environments. There's even game crossovers! Did I mention it's out... TODAY!? Costs $15.


- Mario Kart 8: New characters have been confirmed (Rosalina, various babies and Waluigi to name a few) as well as a few new tracks (Airport) and karts (UFO). Still looking beautiful.

- Smash Bros: Rosalina joins the fray! She looks to be a mix between Olimar and Ice Climbers with her little star buddy Luma adding an extra layer of attack and defense. Woo hoo!

- Hyrule Warriors: In what's being called a "Zelda spin-off", players will fight off mobs of enemies in Dynasty Warrior style combat. It's one part "What the hell" and two parts "Holy ****, that's epic".


Which announcement had you the most excited? It's always Smash Bros for me, but I'm obsessed (as is Bonny). Though I must say Hyrule Warriors was the stand out.
