With the Sony and Microsoft getting ready to launch their next generation, Nintendo would like to borrow your attention for a 30 minute Nintendo Direct and remind you that they are Nintendo and they make awesome games!! The focus games were Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and Super Mario 3d World, along with additional details for Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy and more DLC for Pikmin 3.
November 22nd, even with the launch of the Xbox One, Nintendo will be releasing 3 games that day. Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and Mario Party Island Tour launching for the 3DS and Super Mario 3D World launching for the Wii U. Nintendo has such a strong hold on the mobile gaming market with the success of the 3DS this year and add a long awaited sequel to Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past, many gamers favorite game of all time, Nintendo will be definitely stealing time away from my Xbox One that day! Super Mario 3D World is the first multiplayer Mario title to be realesed in a 3D environment and it could not look any better. Nintendo showed off 10 things you have to see in 3D World, with what they showed off, including 5th additional character (spoiler in video) being more than enough reason to let your shiny new Xbox One or PS4 collect dust for a day or ten.
Also big news from the Direct, is that the 3DS will be getting a huge system update next month to add the awesome Miiverse, youtube, and finally combining your Wii U balance and your 3DS balance so no more of your money in two different places.
While Nintendo has always “did their own thing” compared to Microsoft and Sony, they show that games always come first with their strong list of IPs that will have you carrying your 3DS with you everywhere you go and dusting off your Wii U for what looks like could be one of the best Mario titles to date!
