Did you know that there was a Nintendo Direct this morning? You probably didn’t as Nintendo stealthily released it without any prior warning. The secretive nature of its release doesn’t mean it was a bad Nintendo Direct though. In fact, there were quite a few excellent trailers released alongside of it that give us a better look at some upcoming games.
First up is Mario & Luigi: Dream Team. Nintendo calls it the “comedy trailer,” and I believe that designation is apt. The franchise has always been known for its humor, and this latest trailer doesn’t disappoint.
Mario & Luigi: Dream Team will be available on August 11 exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS.
Up next is the latest trailer for The Wonderful 101. This prologue trailer explains a bit of the backstory for the latest game from the geniuses over at Platinum Games. Nintendo promises a future Nintendo Direct will be devoted entirely to the game so you won’t have to wait long for more information.
The Wonderful 101 will be available on September 15 exclusively for Wii U.
On a final note, Nintendo released a trailer for the virtual console release of EarthBound. It’s a pretty special event as this is the first time in decades that Nintendo of America has even acknowledged the game’s existence, and they went all out with its debut on virtual console. Every virtual console release isn’t going to get a trailer this cool, but I can dream, right?
EarthBound is available on the Wii U virtual console today.
