Nintendo Direct Roundup: New Kirby, No Donkey Kong In 2013 And A Shake-up For Zelda

By: 10.01.13  •  6 Comments


Nintendo put out another Nintendo Direct this morning chock-full of news on games coming out in 2013 and early-2014 (and one game that was supposed to come out in 2013, but is now coming out early-2014). Hit the jump for all sorts of new Mario, Sonic, Kirby, Zelda, Smash Bros., Pikmin and Donkey Kong news…

Here’s the full presentation if you have half-an-hour to spare…

First, a few random tidbits.

– A major new Wii U system update is now available. It adds off-screen play for Wii games and a number of other tweaks. No additional reduction in loading times though.

– New DLC for Pikmin 3! For two bucks you get four new Mission Mode missions. Also, there’s a new Pikmin 3 update that improves the game’s leaderboards and provides another, free, Mission Mode mission.

Donkey Kong Returns: Tropical Freeze has been delayed from December until February 2014, because come on, it wouldn’t be the holidays without Nintendo delays! Also, hopefully they can use the extra time to come up with a better title for the game.
