Nintendo Friday Night Fights: Another Direct Edition

This morning, Nintendo held another worldwide Nintendo Direct. As you can see up there. It was mostly release date news, as well as some new footage for already announced things. Personally, I'm looking forward to the games, but I've been doing that for awhile. Too long. It looks like, on the Wii U side, Game & Wario and New Super Luigi U will be the "big" releases for the immediate future. They look like fun, but after that it's another couple of months before a big game. I hope you have a 3DS.

As for the new games they announced, your mileage may vary. A lot. A partnership with SEGA has lead to some new games from them: Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games, Sonic: The Lost World (for Wii U and 3DS,) and another as-of-yet unannounced game. The former game looks  better than the others in the series, but...nah. Sonic: The Lost World, however, sounds like it could work, being a Nintendo partnership. In my head, a 3D Sonic game that works like Mario 64 with an open world in which to run around, and multiple goals sounds good. With the bonus Chaos emerald levels being classic 2D Sonic. Yeah; do that. Do it.

I guess the biggest surprise was the announcement of playable demos for select Wii U games that will be appearing at E3. The catch here is that the demos are thus far only going to be playable at demo stations at Best Buy, in N.A. and Canada. I think this is smart for several reasons, but I really do hope they offer these demos in the Wii U eShop as well. In any case, at least the work that goes into making demos will be experienced by more people. 
If they aren't downloadable, I may just have to go to BB to play some of the games. Especially if a new 3D Mario, Zelda, Mariokart, maybe even Smash Bros. are there. I doubt that last one, but there could be others, too. Hurry up, E3.
