Highlights from the Direct
So yesterday Nintendo had a Direct that focused on Wii U with some 3DS games as well. The entire direct was forty-eight minutes in length. Overall I thought that it was okay, we got some release dates on some titles as well as some launch windows for others. Here are some of my personal highlights from the direct, let me know what were some of your favorite announcements from the direct.
Super Smash Bros 3DS/U
The direct started off a video of Mewtwo as well as the release date for when he will be available. For those who bought both the 3DS and Wii U versions he will be available for download on April 15th. For those that didn't buy both versions he will be available for purchase on the 28th. There was also a video showcasing another downloadable character Lucas. There is also a survey on the Smash Bros webpage where you can let Nintendo know which character you would like to see as the next DLC character release. Amiibo waves 4 and 5 also got some attention as well as a launch window.
Yoshi's Wolly World
This game is looking pretty interesting. A new trailer was shown with some details about the game being discussed. The also shown a new type of amiibo. Apparently, they are making 3 yarn looking amiibo, one pink, one green, and one blue.
I am not going to lie, I am really looking forward to this game. A new trailer was shown that took a look at some new maps. Also this game is going to utilize amiibo. There are three amiibo that were shown the male, female, and squid. The male and female amiibo will also be available separate or in a pack along with the squid amiibo.
Fatal Frame 5
I know fans of the series were hoping that this one would get announced and it did. I haven't played a Fatal Frame game in a while but the trailer that they showed I have to admit got me pretty pumped. I am looking forward to hearing more about this game in the coming months.
Mario Kart 8 DLC
Well the second DLC pack has been pushed up from May to April 23rd. A trailer was shown showing the Animal Crossing track. There was one more trailer that was shown and it was for the 200cc that is going to be available on the 23rd as well as a free download. Races are going to get a whole lot more interesting.
These are the games that stood out to me. You can watch the whole direct below. Let me know what stood out to you in the comments. What did you think of the Direct as a whole? e3 2015is a couple of months away and its shaping up to be an interesting show.
