Nintendo Direct August 7th.

NewsV1

Yesterday Nintendo held one of it’s Direct events but there really wasn’t much to write home about.

Sonic The Lost World got a confirmed release date of October 18th in Europe and the 22th in North America while Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked and Professor Layton and the Azran Legacies were given European releases of September 13th and November 8th respectively. Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney was also confirmed for an early 2014 release. Away from release dates Nintendo also unveiled a new Animal Crossing themed Plaza for the Wii U where fans can discuss their love for all things Animal Crossing, oh and Luigi will be a playable character in both Smash Bros. U and 3DS. That though was your lot.

  1. Yeah, it was pretty disappointing, especially being their first Direct since E3. Luigi being in SSB was expected as this is the “Year of Luigi”, so no surprise there. I wish they’d at least *tease* us with Zelda U screen shots or something.

  2. I didn’t expect any Zelda U news but I did think we’d hear something about Super Mario 3D World. After the bashing it took at E3 Nintendo really needed to start building the game up and yet, for some reason they haven’t.
