The long-awaited Nintendo Direct is online now, including first looks at The World Ends With You and Hyrule Warriors remasters.
Even when things leaks for Nintendo they still conduct to do the unexpected, and rather than a delayed rave to a livestream they’ve just dumped their latest Nintendo Direct onto YouTube.
As warned, it is a ‘mini’ Direct, so there are no major new diversion announcements, solely for the already leaked Dark Souls Remastered – which they didn’t contend much about in the Direct but has just been confirmed for other consoles too.
You can watch the whole thing next (it’s only 14 mins long) but the highlights embody newly remastered versions of Wii U games Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and Hyrule Warriors, as good as DS cult classical The World Ends With You.
In terms of code new games there’s the formerly hinted at Kirby Star Allies, as good as Mario Tennis Aces. You’d assume the latter is some kind of rejig of Wii U diversion Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash but it seems flattering opposite in the trailer, and for the first time on a home console facilities a story mode.
Also highlighted were online shooter Payday 2, which will be out next month, and good regarded Japanese role-player Ys VIII.
On top of new games there’s also free DLC for Super Mario Odyssey, which is out in Feb and will supplement two rival modes and 3 new costumes.
There’s also some-more paid-for DLC coming for Pokkén Tournament DX, and Donkey Kong will be coming to Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle with new story content.
All of which seems sincerely positive, but there’s no sanctimonious any of it constitutes a major recover for the system. Which means we still don’t know what Nintendo’s big first party games are for this year.
