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!

Our Verdict


Colin McIsaac
I first played Donkey Kong Country before even turning three years old, and have since grown into an avid gamer and passionate Nintendo fan. I started working at Zelda Informer in August 2012, and helped found Gamnesia, which launched on February 1, 2013. Outside of the journalism game, I'm an invested musician who loves arranging music from video games and other media. If you care to follow my endeavors, you can check out my channel here: I was rummaging through some things a while back and found my first grade report card. My teacher said, "Oddly enough, Colin doesn't like to write unless it's about computers or computer-type games. In his journal he likes to write about what level he is on in 'Mario Land,' but he doesn't often write about much else." I was pretty amused, given where I am today. Also I have a dog, and he's a pretty cool guy. I don't care for elephants much. I suppose they're okay. You've read plenty now; carry on.
