Sm Mario Nintendo Direct Feburary Roundup


Nintendo held another one of their Nintendo Direct online press conferences yesterday, packed full of news about upcoming 3DS and Wii U games. Here’s a quick rundown of what Nintendo covered yesterday. You can watch the full press conference here.

Game Boy Advance games are coming to the Wii U’s Virtual Console in April.
Nintendo didn’t say what day GBA games will be available for the North American Virtual Console in April, but did announce that the first batch of games will include Metroid: Fusion, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and Yoshi’s Island: Super Mario Advance 3.

Little Mac from Punch-Out joins the latest Super Smash Bros game for Wii U and 3DS.
That tiny little guy from the Punch-Out games will be a playable character in Super Smash Bros for the first time. It’s surprising that it’s taken this long, considering his entire existence is devoted to hand-to-hand combat. Perhaps his skills in the sweet science don’t translate well to the lawless chaos of a Smash scrum.



NES Remix 2 will be released for the Wii U on April 25.
Nintendo’s first mash-up of NES games was an Apple-style instant release surprise at the last Nintendo Direct in December, but they gave us two months head’s up for the sequel. The latest post-modern sampler platter will slice up levels and scenes from Metroid, Super Mario Bros 3, Kid Icarus and several other NES classics. It will also include a game called Super Luigi Bros, which is described as a mirror image of the original Super Mario Bros, with the playable character Luigi walking from right to left.


X will apparently play somewhat like Xenoblade Chronicles.
Xenoblade Chronicles was an excellent RPG that came out late in the Wii’s life. Its small print run sold out fast and now copies fetch goofy sums online. It was developed by Monolith Soft, who are now working on a follow-up for the Wii U. Footage from that follow-up, currently referred to as X, was shown during yesterday’s presentation, and the battle system resembles that of Xenoblade Chronicles. Nintendo president Satoru Iwata said X’s battle system would have “more polish” than Xenoblade’s. Since Brian Taylor only tentatively praised Xenoblade’s combat in his review for Paste, “more polish” sounds like a good idea.

Mario Kart 8 arrives on the Wii U on May 30.
The latest Mario Kart will blitz through the Wii U at the end of May, featuring the regular rosters of racers along with a handful of new entrants, including all of the Koopalings from Super Mario Bros 3.


3DS release dates galore.
Nintendo dated half a dozen 3DS games yesterday, including one that hit the 3DS eShop during the press conference.
Inazuma Eleven, a soccer RPG from Level-5: February 13
Weapon Shop de Omasse: February 20
Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy: February 28
Pokemon Battle Trozei, a match-three puzzler: March 20
Mario Golf: World Tour: May 2
Kirby Triple Deluxe: May 2

Unless there's a bonus or CE/LE I'm not pre-ordering MK8. I might pre-order Kirby Triple Deluxe though.

Also, Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright is coming out on 28th March. Weird they didn't mention that.

I'm kind of on the fence about X now that I've seen it has a similar battle system to Xenoblade.

I don't have anything pre-ordered right now. Here's my thoughts on the rest:

I'm excited for GBA games on Wii U.

Don't really care one way or the other about Little Mac. Totes excited about the game though~ I might end up pre-ordering it once there's a release date.. and if I can afford it.

I might have to check out these NES remixes. It looked interesting the last ND, but didn't check it out.

X looks awesome the same way Xenoblade looked awesome. Unfortunately, I didn't like the battle system.

Pretty excited for MK8, but might not get it right away.

I might check out Weapon Shop and the Pokemon puzzle game.. depending on their price.

Not mentioned in that list.. but Bayonetta 2 is looking pretty awesome. I never played the first, but still thinking about checking this one out.

I just checked it out on my 3DS. I liked what I saw.

Little Mac looks fun to play as albeit possibly broken. But then again of course a trailer's job is to make the character look uber awesome, better than they are in-game (his recovery looks horrid, possibly the worst in the series).

Mario Kart 8 and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze look amazing.
