Summary of today’s Nintendo Direct


Nintendo started their Nintendo Direct broadcast with Luigi, Mario and Iwata bowing to their public.

Lets start with the best news ever!

The Legend of Zelda is coming to the 3DS!!!
Who remembers the fantastic title The Legend of Zelda – A Link to the Past? Fan’s rejoice, the 3DS is getting a direct sequel to it. The title doesn’t have a name yet, but Nintendo did show us some awesome footage of the game! The game will play in the same world as A Link to the Past with brand new dungeons, items skills and a story! I am looking extremely forward to this.

Thank you Nintendo!
