Valentine's Day Nintendo Direct: The Year of Luigi

With today's Nintendo Direct, 2013 became the Year of Luigi!  We got a great look at Luigi's Mansion, as well as our first looks at Mario & Luigi RPG: Dream Team, a new Mario Golf, and New Super Luigi U (DLC for NSMB U that changes the entire game!).  But wait, there's more! Seriously, there was an overload of information.

We finally got a release date for Animal Crossing New Leaf: June 9.  We got information about Lego City Undercover, Need for Speed Most Wanted, Mario & Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move, Zen Pinball 2, Runner 2, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D.

We also got information on a sale on downloadable titles on the 3DS eShop, a new Zombi U Wii U bundle, and a free game promotion when you buy a 3DS XL and Luigi's Mansion or Pokemon Mystery Dungeon.  And there is still more beyond that.

I honestly don't remember everything that was shown off, but that's mostly because my brain is still pumped about Animal Crossing and the Mario Golf announcement.  Just watch it.  I don't know how they keep making these things so good.
