Surprise! Here's A Bunch Of Nintendo News

Sometimes, Nintendo just randomly throws up a "Nintendo Direct Micro" and announces a bunch of new 3DS games for North America, including Bravely Second, Dr. Mario, and Chibi-Robo. Because Nintendo likes surprises.

In the 17-minute video, hosted by Bill Trinen and published out of nowhere this morning, Nintendo announced Chibi-Robo: Zip Lash (for 3DS this October), Dr. Mario: Miracle Cure (June 11), and a US localisation of Bravely Second (2016). There's a Chibi-Robo amiibo coming too.

Other highlights from the video include a free new weapon and map for Splatoon (launching tonight), a trailer for the upcoming co-op game Project Treasure, and the announcement of Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, for both 3DS and Wii U.

You can watch the whole video above.

      Unless the have even bigger surprises planned for E3.

      Cue hype train.

        Yep, they clearly have their e3 announcements planned as it's not that far away now. I expect heaps on Zelda as it will be out before the next e3.
