Well, let’s start this summary of Nintendo Direct 14.01.2015, which mainly goes into detail regarding games that will launch on the Wii U and 3DS platform for the first and second quarter of 2015. Still there is a nice tidbit regarding when will the New 3DS and 3DS XL be coming to US and EU, as they were expected after being launched first in Japan and Australia before Christmas.
If you’re interested in the date then it’s 13th February both EU and US. So if you waited or wanted the new slight power upgrade and C-button on your 3DS, fear not, less than a month(at the suggested retail price of $199.99) and it shall be yours. Now back to the main reason you need it, to play games, and what an interesting list of titles.
Let’s start with all the exclusive Nintendo 3DS titles discussed:
- Fire Emblem(TBA)
- Puzzle & Dragons Z and Super Mario Bros. Edition(May)
- Pokémon Shuffle(February,Free To Play)

If you wanted even more amiibo’s, well now your collection will get even bigger because you guys always buy these. So enjoy Robin, Lucina, PAC-MAN, Wario, Ness and Charizard amiibo figures, plus Super Mario Bros. amiibo, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker amiibo functionality.
All these are mentioned or can be seen in the latest Nintendo Direct below. If you’re looking for a particular title, just look at the description of the video and click directly to whatever you desire.
Personally I don’t agree with making a lot of news posts regarding Nintendo Direct but prefer a full article with a summary and a list of the titles discussed. I would find it annoying to go to every news bit.
