New 3DS XL, Majora’s Mask Release Date Highlight Nintendo Direct

Nintendo kicked off the new year with its first Nintendo Direct event of 2015. There was plenty of news coming out of the event, which seemed to be a bit more focused on Nintendo 3DS.

The presentation kicked off with a trailer for “The latest entry in the Fire Emblem series.” Developed by the same team as Fire Emblem Awakening, conversation and battle tactics will now affect the outcome of the game world.

Puzzle and Dragons, the massive European and Japanese hit, is coming to the USA. Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario World Edition, is also included. Both will hit in May 2015.

Pokemon Shuffle, a new puzzle title, is coming to the 3DS eShop as a free to play title. It looked quite similar to Candy Crush Saga.

Select Wii titles are finally available for download on Wii U. The first three are Super Mario Galaxy 2, Punch-Out, and Metroid Prime Trilogy. They will be available for download starting today at 50% off for the first week.

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse got a fancy new trailer. The Wii U title will also be compatible with Amiibo, giving Kirby special boosts as he unlocks in-game figurines and music.

Speaking of Amiibo, a new wave of Amiibo was announced. Hitting stores this Spring, the new wave contains Robin, Lucina, Charizard, Pac-Man, Wario, and Ness. This will be the first piece of Earthbound merchandise in the US in quite some time; possibly ever.

More Amiibo announced: Super Mario series.  They will be launching alongside Mario Party 10, unlocking new boards. A bundle featuring the new Mario will release alongside the game on March 20th. It was noted that “doubled” Amiibo will all work with legacy games. For example, the new Mario figure will work with Super Smash Bros U.

Splatoon had a new feature revealed. It is a hub similar to Destiny’s Tower. Here players can enter single player, multiplayer, buy new weapons using in-game earned money, and change out clothing. Splatoon will launch this May.

Majora’s Mask characters, themes, and skins are coming to Hyrule Warriors as DLC on February 5th. This includes my main man Tingle.

Xenoblade Chronicles X got a new trailer. The game appears to feature a beautiful and massive open world, and enormous enemies.

Mario vs Donkey Kong Tipping Stars is coming to 3DS. Players will be able to tip stars to other players for creating user-generated maps that they enjoy.

Bandai-Namco revealed a 4 player co-op FTP game codenamed “Project Treasure” for Wii U, exclusively. You disarm traps and work together to navigate through levels.

Fossil Fighters: Frontier is hitting the USA. New online arena battle to stack your dinosaurs against others. It will release on March 20th.

Codename: STEAM will launch on 3DS on March 13th. Amiibo will unlock Fire Emblem characters to use in the game.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate gameplay was shown. Single player and 4 player online is enabled.

The new Nintendo 3DS XL was revealed. It has face tracking 3D for better viewing angles, a faster processor, shoulder Z buttons, built-in Amiibo support, slightly longer battery, Micro SD support, and the C-stick nub. It will cost $199.99 and legitimately does not include an AC adapter. However, it will work with previous 3DS XL adapters. It will release in the USA on February 13th.


Majora’s Mask closed the presentation. On the new 3DS XL, it will feature full 360 camera rotating using the C-Stick. It is not exclusive to the new 3DS XL. A special Majora’s Mask branded 3DS XL was shown. From the look of it, it doesn’t appear to include the game. However, this could be because the Majora’s Mask 3D was given the same release date of February 13th.
