Last night, Nintendo gave us one of the biggest Nintendo Directs in the company’s history—especially for fans of Super Smash Bros. and Amiibo. They revealed a ton of information about DLC and various new updates for Smash, Mario Kart 8, and information on dozens of upcoming games for both Wii U and 3DS. There’s stuff in here that’s extremely exciting, some stuff that’s a little concerning, and a lot more that you may not have noticed. Check out the video embedded above to hear our thoughts on last night’s Nintendo Direct!
