Nintendo Direct reveals NES Remix 2 and Steel Diver Sub Wars



Nintendo Direct

Nintendo has kicked off 2014’s PR offensive with a new Nintendo Direct broadcast. In typically humorous fashion Nintendo President Satoru Iwata revealed more details about a raft of forthcoming games, including Super Smash Bros, Mario Golf: World Tour, Kirby Triple Deluxe and Yoshi’s New Island.

A few new titles were also announced, with Steel Diver: Sub Wars arriving on 3DS today, and Ubisoft’s Child of Light and NES Remix 2 coming to Wii U in Spring. Nintendo also gave Mario Kart 8 a confirmed EU launch date of May 30th 2014.

No megatons this time around, but a solid presentation.
