Yep; Nintendo had another Direct this week. There was some bad news along with the good, unfortunately. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze was delayed until February 2014, with the original release date December 6th. Sad news for fans of excellent platformers, such as myself.
On the other hand, there was plenty of good news and videos to be had, including an announcement/trailer for a a new Kirby game on 3DS!! KIRBY! There was also some Pikmin 3 DLC, Sonic in Smash Bros., a Wii Party U trailer (an important game, IMO,) and an fantastic trailer for Super Mario 3D World, among other stuff. The SM3DW was reassuring, and I can't wait to get the game.
On Nintendo's Youtube page, they've been uploading a lot, actually. There have a few new trailers specifically for things they're bringing to Indicade. They could have included them in the Direct...but whatevs. Check em out!
Ready to Friday? Have a great one!
