For those who missed the most recent Nintendo Direct broadcast, which focused entirely on the next Smash Bros. game, the above video holds the entire presentation. I’ll leave this post “stuck” to the top of the blog for a while but will continue publishing content below.

Kirby Triple Deluxe 2

Kirby: Triple Deluxe is set for release during May — the 2nd in North America and the 16th in Europe — and, to prepare, Nintendo has launched a new website for the game. It’s packed with videos and details and you can check it out here. Or you can check after the break for descriptions of Kirby’s new abilities.

Smash Bros Gerudo Final

Within the next Smash Bros. game, most stages have a “final destination” version. This means the stage at the end of a match won’t be the same as the stage at the start of the match. As explained by Masahiro Sakurai, this screenshot shows:

…the final destination version of Gerudo Valley. No more surprise visits from Koume and Kotake, and the bridge is gone. There are no distractions and there’s nowhere to run. And the score that plays in the background is “Gerudo Valley.”

Still a few months before we can get our hands on it though.

Animal Crossing

Starting on the 22nd of April, the following five games on the 3DS will be available for the more affordable price of $29.99 (both via the eShop and at stores):

  • Mario Kart 7
  • Super Mario 3D Land
  • New Super Mario Bros. 2
  • Animal Crossing: New Leaf
  • Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D

But of course, these games sold so well that you might already own most or all of them. If you haven’t though, wait a week and you’ll be able to grab some great titles for less money.

Mario Golf World tour

Mario Golf: World Tour features thirteen characters by default and a further four that can be unlocked as you progress through the game. If you want to see the full list, check it out after the break.

There are, however, also Master Balls which will unleash rare and legendary Pokémon (such as Arceus) into the battle


Yoshi is returning to Smash Bros.


In one of the least surprising (but not less grand) announcements during today’s Nintendo Direct broadcast, Yoshi will be a returning challenger in the next Smash Bros. game.


As previously confirmed, a complete online mode is coming to the next Smash Bros. game. To maintain this, Nintendo will also have a reporting and banning system in place to maintain as much order as possible. You can see the possible reasons for being banned in the image above.

Release Window

Nintendo has confirmed that the next Smash Bros. game is set for release on the 3DS during Summer 2014. This is before the release of the Wii U version during Winter 2014.
