By: 05.17.13  •  2 Comments

Nintendo held another one of its Nintendo Direct presentations this morning and, well, I’m not entirely sure why. They didn’t exactly have a ton of information to impart. That said, there were still a few tidbits that should be of interest to Nintendo fanatics, so hit the jump for a rundown and some new trailers/game footage…

Some highlights…

– Nintendo and Sega are now best pals. A new Mario & Sonic Olympics title is on the way and the next major Sonic platformer, Sonic Lost World will be a Wii U exclusive. Also, Yakuza 1 & 2 are getting an HD Wii U remake. In less exciting news, the 3DS Virtual Consoles will be getting a heaping pile of Game Gear games.

– New Super Luigi U will be available as DLC for New Super Mario Bros. U on June 20th for 20 bucks. In an odd move, Nintendo will also be releasing it later, on August 25th, as a stand-alone boxed game for 30 bucks.

– Platinum Games’ The Wonderful 101 finally has a release date — September 15th.

…and that’s about it! Hit page two for a Game & Wario trailer and new Super Luigi U and Pikmin 3 footage.
