Nintendo Direct Round Up, January 13

Nintendo Direct took place today and we got plenty of news out of it. So here is our Nintendo Direct round up for January 13.

Things kicked off with Fire Emblem for Nintendo 3DS. It's developed by the same team as Awakening. Intelligent Systems have also got some new staffers on board for the story which will offer games all new choices.

More information is coming in the future.

Next up it was Puzzle & Dragons Z and Puzzle & Dragons Super Mario Bros. Edition, which are coming to 3DS in Europe too. Woo. This series is literally a monster in Japan so it'll be interesting to see how well it is received over here. Both games will come in one package this May.

Pokemon Shuffle was the next game talked about, it's basically a puzzle game which you can play on the 3DS eStore for free this February. It'll include microtransactions, so you can progress through the game quickly.

Starting today, you can download Wii games directly to your WiiU via the eShop. Super Mario Galaxy 2 is first up today. Punch Out is coming Jan 22, while Metroid Prime Trilogy comes Jan 29. Games supporting the Classic Controller can also be played using the Wii U GamePad Controller.

The games will be half price for one week after launch.

The 'Link Between Worlds' 3DS wasn't a GAME exclusive, so maybe this one won't be either.

I think I ended up watching the US version, got some of the release dates I wanted anyway, and some I wasn't expecting. Majora's Mask coming sooner than expected, Liking the look of Mario vs DK too, will definitely be getting that in March on Wii U and 3DS. Project Treasure and Iron Fall look interesting too, altogether a pretty good showing.

No wonder you only had until Jan 12th to buy the Ambassador edition for £180, as otherwise if you had until today, then probably would not have gone for it, when can get it next month for £150. Also I did not realise that they were going to be doing a standard and a XL again, I thought the *new* 3DS was the only one. The Ambassador version is not XL, which I thought it was going to be the same as the XL. Fortunately I have not opened mine yet, so may return it or resell it, but I doubt it will sell for much more now, when it is officially released next month and costs less. I may still keep it, as people have commented that screen is still bigger than the original 3DS, and the XL is tad too large. I have to admit I do find the XL a bit uncomfortable to handle.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
