Nintendo Direct Live Reactions!
We’ve got another Nintendo Direct today and this one could prove to be pretty interesting! It’s scheduled to be a pretty long session too. In fact, it’s rumored to be the longest since the E3 presentation last year. Sakurai posted an interesting teaser image to the miiverse yesterday that hints at more info about Super Smash Bros. but what else do they have in store?
The Stream is over here, we’ll be commenting below!
Thanks for joining us everyone! If you have any comments on the Direct make sure you leave them below!
On the plus side, 3DS continues to be amazing.
I think X is a 2015 game at this point. I’d imagine Bayonetta is a late summer at earliest.
Wii U isn’t going to dig itself out this spring.
It was a “spring 2014″ Nintendo Direct. We weren’t getting release dates for either of those.
Still no dates for X nor Bayonetta 2…
That’s it? Nintendo is really struggling showcasing new Wii U softwares.
“Bayonetta 2 is the second game about Bayonetta”
Thanks, Iwata. I never would have guessed.
Certainly looks visually impressive.
Looks balls-out nuts. I approve.
Ah, yeah. Bayonetta 2.
Only real complaint is that there is an insane amount of HUD on screen. Use the gamepad for that!
This game will justify my Wii U ownership by itself. It looks even better than Xenoblade.
I sure dig those robots!
Graphics look fantastic. Love the mechs.
Battle system looks like Xenoblade. No complaints from me there.
X battles will be full of random banters!
Ooh, new info on X.
Mario Kart looks like a ton of fun.
Still wish these were on 3DS and not Wii U, but meh.
GBA VC titles for Wii U… in Spring
Oh my…! Buying NES Remix 2! Skipped the first one because it was full of NES games I didn’t even like back in the days, but this volume is full of games I loved.
These NES Remix games must be really easy to make.
Almost. NES Remix 2
I’m calling NES Remix DLC
Nice music in the Donkey Kong trailer.
2017? You’re optimistic!
Japanese stream talking about GBA games on Wii U VC. Nice lineup coming to Japan.
Expect them in the US in 2017.
Can I say Metroid? Because it’ll never happen.
So I guess it’s Wii U turn now…
Child of Light looks great. Impressed.
Both 3DS and Wii U eShops will have great indie titles in the coming months.
Lots of great indie love.
Yeah! Remember when we interviewed Yacht Club Games?
Really glad I own a 3DS… Now Nintendo, convince me my Wii U was a good investment too. :/
Pretty solid presentation for the 3DS so far. Glad they’re showcasing indie developers.
Inazuma Eleven is already available? Wow. Pretty good surprise!
Today? But I still need to play Bravely Default.
Soccer games just make me miss Sega Soccer Slam.
Level 5 is really delivering the goods. Nintendo? Boring. Level 5? Winning.
Inazuma 11? Yes!
Ooooh! I want that forging game. I’m so glad the “Guild” series made it over here.
It’s like Man At Arms: The Game! https://www.youtube.com/user/AweMeChannel?feature=watch
Oh, sweet. I’ve wanted to play the Weapon Shop game!
I want to understand the love for Monster Hunter, but those games still baffle me.
still waiting to get excited…
I’m getting really antsy for Wii U announcements… Anything…
I kind of wish that was a Professor Layton extreme sports game. Hang gliding, fencing, maybe add in some cyclocross.
Layton music. So good.
Well, at least we are finally getting Layton 6. Only months after Europe. -_-
Apparently, the Japanese stream has a new Phoenix Wright game? I’m clearly watching the wrong stream!
Weird. I’m conflicted. On one hand – I kind of hate IAPs, on the other – it’s interesting how Nintendo is playing with the format.
Interesting take on F2P with Rusty’s Real Deal Baseball. I like the virtual deal part.
I think you mean “good feeling$”
I’m getting uncomfortable with Iwata telling me about good feelings.
Oh, is it that weird 3DS F2P game where you can negotiate the IAP prices with the seller…?
Good feeling of baseball.
That weird baseball game for the 3DS is releasing stateside!
Launching today? Will give it a try.
Ah, here we go. F2P version with limited sub types and single player missions, but full multiplayer.
Looks kind of interesting. Tactical FPS play. I’m intrigued.
Graphics are ugly, but eh.
Streaming already crapped out on my side… Happy to learn I’m not missing anything interesting right now!
I thought the Steel Diver sequel was for Wii U? That was the F2P one?
Yep. I have an irrational dislike of gyro controls.
Me too… and there’s gyro controls too.
Yoshi’s New Island looks a tiny bit more interesting every time new footage is shown. Still not sure if it’ll be worth playing however… :/
Still not feeling Yoshi. 2D or NO D.
The Japanese stream had Persona Q, which is way more interesting than Mario Golf.
Looks like some of the other rebels are caught in work meetings. You might just be stuck with my live reactions.
Please understand. *bows*
Yawn. Mario Golf has’t been interesting since Game Boy Color
Man, I want a game with graphics that look like that animated intro.
Punch Out? Interesting.
Iwata will deliver Direct directly to us.
For me it’s all about Smash Bros. I’m really looking forward to seeing what they’re going to do to differentiate between the 3DS and WiiU versions of the game.
I’m really not expecting much in terms of announcements, but hoping for some Phoenix Wright vs Layton news, anything at all to do with Virtual Console (poor, neglected Virtual Console), and a Dragon Quest 7 3DS localization announcement.
My actual expectations are just another Mario Kart and Donkey Kong trailer.
What are you guys hoping to see out of today’s Direct?
