Yeah that was pretty much the best Nintendo Direct ever. Not sure which of the announcements to be most excite about.

Rabla I must be a jerk! So many great announcements, but all I could think was, "Well yeah, of course you're making that. When's the release date?"

I'm really happy to see these improvements are coming, faster load times should be sweet along with being able to create your own community.

Don't forget a new trailer for Wonderful 101 and a quick look at Bayonetta 2 development.

All in all, I'm pretty hyped by all of this. VC games not moving straight over is disappointing, but makes sense financially for Nintendo as they do have to do extra development for the new content added to each game. It's kind of funny how negative it sounds to "re-buy" software you already own on the system, yet if they had phrased it as "DLC to unlock enhanced features on Wii U for only $1" it would feel much better. Either way, that functionality still isn't enough for me to move my stuff over from my Wii, still need that GC Controller support.

I'm not much for the whole "HD Remake" fad of the last few years, but I'm giddy for Windwaker HD. What was that about re-buying software being bad, bbb? Oh well, it's Zelda. Double (or quadruple in the case of OoT) dipping is just one of those things that series makes me do.

SMTxFE was out of left field, but I'll be looking forward to it, along with X whenever it comes out. Also hyped for Yoshi's Epic Yarn, loved Kirby EY. Hopefully it will sport a similar multiplayer co-op mode.

Mario, Kart, and Smash were all expected at E3, so no surprises there. Hopefully the first two being playable at E3 means we'll be getting a holiday 2013 release for both, similar to 3D Land and Kart 7 hitting 3DS together a couple of years back. Those two titles plus Windwaker plus some of these others will go a long way into securing excitement for Nintendo even with the likely launch of competing systems. The drought this and next month don't bother me personally, I'm still catching up from Wii U's launch and Christmas this year, and the 3DS is getting a lot of love for the next few months to keep my gaming time very busy.

Yarn Yoshi, Wind Waker HD, new feature in Pimin 3, and at least a mention of Super Smash Bros. and new Zelda... Nintendo, I love you so.

This was the best Nintendo Direct ever. I'm saving those Smash Bros screenshots as wallpapers on my iPod and Facebook page. Can't wait for the new MK and 3D Mario. Should have a Wii U by then.

Looks like we won't be seeing any Star Fox or Metroid releases then or at least not anytime soon.

I don't know, we still don't know what Retro is working on. My guess is Nintendo is saving their game for a big E3 reveal, hopefully it is a Star Fox revival.

What Smash Bros screenshots? All he said about SSB was that they would show screenshots at E3. I'm pretty sure there weren't any this Nintendo Direct. :/

Captain Nerditude No, they aren't posted yet. I was saying in June when they show the screenshots, I was going to save them and post them as my profile pic on social networks.
