Nintendo Direct News Round-Up

It’s been a big day for Nintendo news, so here it all is in one place. Sit back and relax because we have lots of release dates, juicy information and new trailers to get you up to date on your favorite Nintendo games.

First of all, we got a release date and a new trailer for Mario Kart 8, which will be out on May 30th for Wii U.

Next we discovered that Mario Golf World Tour will be out on May 2 this year. We also got a new trailer showing off some of the different characters and golf courses in the game.

Nintendo surprised us with news that Little Mac from Punch-Out!! will be joining the Super Smash Bros. lineup. We were also treated to a new trailer in which Little Mac took out some of his anger issues on series veteran Samus.

As if that wasn’t enough, Nintendo showed a new launch trailer for Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze which is out next week on February 21, as well as a brand new Bayonetta 2 trailer titled ‘Did You Miss Me?’

There were even more announcements and trailers which we didn’t get a chance to report on individually, so please see below for a full wrap up of today’s news.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe

Nintendo announced that Kirby: Triple Deluxe will launch on May 2 in North America for the 3DS. The announcement was accompanied by this delightful new trailer:

Yoshi’s New Island

In other 3DS-related news, we got a ‘Eggs-otic Locales’ trailer for Yoshi’s New Island:

Steel Diver Out Now and Free-to-Play

We also learned that Steel Diver will be available today on the 3DS eShop as a free-to-play title with the option to upgrade to a premium paid version.

GameBoy Advance Games Coming to Wii U Virtual Console

Finally, it was announced that the Wii U Virtual Console would be getting GameBoy Advance games starting in April. Metroid: Fusion, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and Yoshi’s Island: Super Mario Advance 3 are the first GBA games to be announced for the system. While we certainly aren’t complaining, it seems like an odd choice for the Wii U Virtual Console. We’ve still got our fingers crossed for N64 and GameCube titles to make their way to Nintendo’s latest home console.
