Typically lackluster, today's Nintendo direct was a lot of new announcements without a whole lot of concrete information.

First up, two Wii U updates will be hitting in spring and summer. With them comes the Virtual Console, which will now support GBA games and Gamepad play.

Also, it's Famicom's 30th anniversary and each month Nintendo will make a Nintendo classic available for download at 30 cents.

New 3D Mario, Mario Kart, Yoshi, and Zelda games were announced, along with an HD remake of Wind Waker.

Also coming is a Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem crossover from Atlus and a new game called X from Monolith Soft, makers of Xenoblade Chronicles.

Check out the front page, there's a ton of new info. It's going to be a good year to be a Wii U owner. biggrin

A spiritual successor to Kirby's Epic Yarn in Yoshi? Very cool...

Wow - Xenoblade meets Xenogears?  SMT x Fire Emblem? Yoshi's Epic Yarn? Out of nowhere, Nintendo has beat out both last year's E3 and the Video Game Awards for new game reveals.

I wouldn't mind some new IPs though, but I guess that's expecting too much from Nintendo.
