Nintendo Direct, February Edition

Posted February 13, 2014 by Robert Steltenpohl in Video Games

Today was February’s version of Nintendo Direct. The past couple of versions have been filled with some mediocre material and no release dates for our most anticipated games (Smash Bros., Mario Kart, and Zelda.) This Nintendo Direct gave us a bit more than normal but I don’t know if this was a slam dunk. Here we go:
