Nintendo Direct 8/7/2013

Today was yet another Nintendo Direct, and this time around Nintendo decided to focus on both the Nintendo Wii U and 3DS. If you missed it the fist time around, Nintendo has now uploaded it to their official YouTube channel, and it can be watched below.


Although most of the Nintendo Direct was covering older announcements, some new VC games were announced, Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright was confirmed for a US release, Lugi was announced for Super Smash Bros Wii U/3DS, and Animal Crossing got its own Miiverse community as well. Along with all of that, more footage of Pokemon Rumble U was shown off, and Nintendo has officially announced their deal with GameStop where you can buy mini Pokemon figures to scan into Rumble U and use as playable characters.

Even though this Nintendo Direct really didn't announce too much that we didn't know about, it is nice to see some of the updates, and it is worth watching if you have either the 3DS or Wii U.
