Feature: The Big Nintendo Direct Summary - 5th November

Posted Thu 6th Nov 2014 06:00 by Thomas Whitehead

There were fireworks

There haven't been many full-on "old-fashioned" Nintendo Direct broadcasts in 2014, as the company has focused on game-specific presentations and an alternative Digital Event approach at E3. While variety is welcome, there was something reassuring about a live video featuring Satoru Iwata in front of a white backdrop; the Nintendo President looked well on his return, though as he himself stated has lost weight while recovering from surgery. He was back, though, taking us around the regions and saving the mightiest reveals for himself.

This presentation certainly started with a bang, delivering an announcement that had been in demand for what seemed like an eternity — The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D will come to the 3DS in Spring 2015. While it had always seemed an inevitability, the consistent teases and missed reveal opportunities had caused some doubt; it looks to be carrying on the good work of the fabulous Ocarina of Time remaster, too.

There was more than just Majora's Mask, however. Some demos arrived — though not the one we really wanted — while there were fresh details on established games; in addition a couple of release dates were given that, in fairness to Nintendo, were sooner than we anticipated.

As it can be tough to follow everything that happens in these broadcasts, we thought we'd provide — as is now tradition — a handy summary of links to the various articles we've produced from the Direct festivities. These aren't everything from the presentations — we recommend checking out the new Xenoblade Chronicles X footage near the end of each broadcast, for example — as in each region there were brief segments simply reiterating previously-known release dates and details.

Let's get on with it, shall we?

What would you rate this Nintendo Direct? 1/10?

Around the Network

Ill give it a 7/10. Majoras Mask 3D and Shovel Knight release in europe was the best parts for me
Nothing huge, but still a fun Direct.

I'll give it a 7. They spent a good amount of time on the stuff I am interested in for 2015, as well as finally announcing the Majoras Mask "surprise"

Keiner kann ihn bremsen, keiner macht ihm was vor. Immer der richtige Schuss, immer zur richtigen Zeit. Superfussball, Fairer Fussball. Er ist unser Torschützenkönig und Held.

Much of it were things we'd consider obvious. As great as Majora's Mask 3D is, we all knew it'd come someday.

I was disappointed we didn't hear more about Yoshi's Wooly World, but that disappointment was tempered by Kirby coming earlier than expected.

Duck Hunt on VC was nice, but they should have done this ages ago.

I predict NX launches in 2017 - not 2016

Around the Network

7/10 because Majora's Mask. If not, 3/10.

Proud to be the first cool Nintendo fan ever

Number ONE Zelda fan in the Universe

DKCTF didn't move consoles

Prediction: No Zelda HD for Wii U, quietly moved to the succesor

Predictions for Nintendo NX and Mobile

Giving it an 8. Majora's Mask 3D was a fantastic announcement and the Mario Kart 8 DLC was pretty dope, but the best part was definitely Splatoon. I'm really digging the single player, and I'm now completely sold on Splatoon because of it. I wish they would have given some more details on Yoshi's Woolly World and Mario Maker though, as those are also supposed to come out early next year.
