Nintendo Wii U Direct - 1/23/13

There was a new Nintendo Direct broadcast this morning which was centered around the Wii U.  No one was really expecting much in the way of actual news, but HOLY CATS WIND WAKER HD REMAKE!

Sorry, I couldn't hold that back any longer.  I am so excited for that news!  

That wasn't all that was announced either!  Nintendo is working on two updates to speed uo the system, one for launching games and one for the switching between menus.  One will be out this Spring, and the other this Summer.  Also announced was the Wii U Virtual Console (with discounted prices for games you already purchased on the Wii), a new Mario Kart Wii U title, a new 3D Mario Wii U title (made by the same team behind Super Mario 3D land, Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem, Miiverse on Smartphones this Spring, the ability to take pictures of your pikmin in Pikmin 3 and post them to Miiverse, and a crap ton more!

I think it is safe to say that this was the best Nintendo Direct since, well, ever!
