Nintendo Direct December 18: Nintendo Insanity Edition

Nintendo had another fantastic Nintendo Direct today.  And while I say fantastic, I also think Nintendo has started to lose their mind.  I mean that in the best possible way, too.

Here is a quick list of things that were announced and shown today:
  • Hyrule Warriors (a.k.a. Dynasty Warriors Zelda, made by Tecmo Koei )
  • Yoshi's Island DLC for Sonic Lost World (available now for free), with Legend of Zelda DLC heavily hinted at
  • NES Remix (like WarioWare for classic NES games)
  • Yoshi's New Island
  • Kirby Triple Deluxe (sounds like a very delicious burger)
  • Chibi-Robo: Photo Finder (on 3DS on January 9)
  • Information on Pokemon Bank and Poke Transfer (like the fact that if you try the service, you get a free Celebi)
  • An outstanding trailer for Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze with Cranky Kong
  • Bravely Default getting a demo on January 2 that counts as a side-story to the main game
  • Golf is now available for Wii Sports Club, and with it, another free 24 hour trial of all three games
  • Dr. Luigi (for the Year of Luigi)

To see some of the insanity for yourself, you can watch the entire Nintendo Direct below.
