Looks like the new Nintendo Direct brought the noise! Read on fellow nerds!
Legend of Zelda: “A Link to the Past 2″
Looks like a sequel for the SNES classic A Link to the Past is coming to the 3DS. Some old school top down adventuring makes a return and I’m crazy hyped. Looking at a holiday 2013 relase for this one.
Also, Oracles of Ages/Seasons are heading for the eshop on May 30th, which is just dandy.
New Yoshi’s Island
Another 3DS game here. Classic sidescrolling action. The visual style looks amazing and I can’t wait to see more of it. Good stuff!
Earthbound is finally getting a digital release. But, sadly, only on the Wii-U virtual console. Seems like a bit of a push by Nintendo to get some Wii-U only games. After all I’m sure the game would fit better on the 3DS, and there shouldn’t be any technology barrier. Oh well. Expect this out by years end.
Animal Crossing 3DS XL
Lookls like this is gettting a US release witha pre-loaded copy of Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Although Animal Crossing: New Leaf looks to be a perfect fit for digital game, the 3DS XL itself is (in my hosnest opinion) pretty bland. Completely a matter of taste though. (I’ll just keep my Pickachu edition firmly in my pocket.) The bundle is going to run gamers $220 MSRP.
