Nintendo let us take a look into their world this morning with a new Nintendo Direct, to show off what they have been working on and what is up their sleeves.  With a surprise announcement of a Tecmo Koei Zelda / Dynasty Warriors mash-up stealing the show, Mario Kart 8 trailer, a Smash Bros character reveal, Kirby 3DS, NES REMIX for the Wii , and so much more, Nintendo pulled out the Ace Cards from their sleeves to keep us happy and let us know BIG THINGS ARE COMING SOON.

Tecmo Koei's Zelda/ Dynasty Warriors mash up had a great trailer showing off what the concept is and how they are keeping it as "true" to what we expect, while introducing a new way to enjoy our favorite green hero. Iwata made sure to STRESS that this is not the Zelda that Nintendo is working on, but a project Tecmo Koei is working on.

NES Remix for the Wii U was also announced, available TODAY!! With different ways to enjoy Nintendo's Classics, via Remixed challenges.

Nintendo showed us show much, that a lot of the announcements they made today made it feel like an E3 event, Dr. Luigi Wii U, 2 special DLCs for Sonic Lost World, one being a Yoshi's Island level and Iwata hinted a "Link", so probably Zelda,  for the other, and a bunch of first party 3DS games that I cannot be more excited to dust off my Wii U and somehow stop playing Pokemon and Zelda on my 3DS to experience everything Nintendo will bring us over the next year.
