There was certainly no shortage of announcements in the first Nintendo Direct broadcast of 2014. From Little Mac’s well-deserved appearance in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. games to surprise eShop releases like the free-to-play Steel Diver: Sub Wars, it’s clear that Nintendo fans have a lot to look forward to in the first part of the new year (though, as per usual, 3DS owners will be receiving the bulk of the spoils).
The staff will be weighing in with their own thoughts on the Nintendo Direct in a special round table tomorrow, but in the meantime, here are links to the biggest announcements from the broadcast, all in one handy place:
- Little Mac Joins Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS
- Steel Diver: Sub Wars Surfaces on the 3DS eShop
- NES Remix 2 Coming to Wii U April 25
