So that was something. Paper Mario looks disappointing, the new Kirby game looks decent, Medli in Hyrule Warriors seems quite cool and Star Fox Zero and Metroid Prime Federation Force... look just like Star Fox Zero and Metroid Prime Federation Force. Yay?

10:41pm 3rd March 2016

Kirby Amiibos now. Yay?

10:40pm 3rd March 2016

Oh god, more Amiibo.

10:39pm 3rd March 2016

Comes with Team Kirby Clash, which lets you fight bosses as a four player team. And it has RPG elements, with a level up system.

10:39pm 3rd March 2016

Kirby with powered armour? Oh god, that's hilarious.

10:38pm 3rd March 2016

New Kirby game, with enemies who mechanised Dreamland.

10:38pm 3rd March 2016

Rhythm Heaven? WarioWare stuff now?

10:38pm 3rd March 2016

Rhythm Heaven? WarioWare stuff now?

10:37pm 3rd March 2016

Rhythmn Heaven Megamix.

10:37pm 3rd March 2016

Well, it looks a bit better. Maybe they scrapped the silly sport part now?

10:34pm 3rd March 2016

Samus does appear in the story, which is ok.

10:32pm 3rd March 2016

Oh god, Metroid Prime Federation Force now. Who cares?

10:31pm 3rd March 2016

Monster Hunter Generations features armour based on Marth from Fire Emblem. Okay, but uninteresting.

10:30pm 3rd March 2016

Monster Hunter Generations is what was known as Monster Hunter Cross. Seems like the leak was right.

10:30pm 3rd March 2016

Monster Hunter Generations is what was known as Monster Hunter Cross. Seems like the leak was right.

10:28pm 3rd March 2016

Dragon Quest 7 has been remade for Nintendo 3DS. Which is good, I guess.

10:26pm 3rd March 2016

Bravely Second stuff now. Again, after the localisation work done to it, they'll have a hard job selling this game to anyone.

10:25pm 3rd March 2016

Disney Art Academy next. Yay?

10:24pm 3rd March 2016

Medli is a new playable character! Freaking awesome, and she's a free download!

Wii U owners can transfer characters from the 3DS game to the Wii U one.

10:23pm 3rd March 2016

Hyrule Warriors Legends DLC. Season pack gives you extra stuff apparently.

10:22pm 3rd March 2016

More maps are being released as DLC too, which is pretty cool I guess.

10:21pm 3rd March 2016

Oh boy, Fire Emblem Fates Relevations is coming now. Did they localise it well or badly? Do we want to know?

10:21pm 3rd March 2016

Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 seems decent.

10:19pm 3rd March 2016

Horse racing + solitare... really? Seems so arbitary...

10:19pm 3rd March 2016

Super Mario World, Donkey Kong Country, Earthbound, F-Zero? Damn, thats cruel to old Nintendo 3DS owners.

10:18pm 3rd March 2016

Yeah, SNES games on 3DS Virtual Console... only New Nintendo 3DS only. Why?

10:18pm 3rd March 2016

Animal Crossing Amiibo Cards. Not saying much here.

Paper Mario Colour Splash! On Prism island!

10:12pm 3rd March 2016

New Paper Mario!

10:12pm 3rd March 2016

10:11pm 3rd March 2016

Lost Reavers update now.

10:11pm 3rd March 2016

Tokyo Mirage Sessions looks ok.

10:10pm 3rd March 2016

10:03pm 3rd March 2016

Oh god, it's defending Slippy's uncle from enemies. With various cameras showing different views, and it has 100 missions. Yay?

10:03pm 3rd March 2016

Project Guard is now Star Fox Guard.

10:03pm 3rd March 2016

Oh God, Amiibo time. Unlocks stuff like classic SNES Arwing.

Venom and Andross confirmed for the game, along with a 2 player mode.

10:01pm 3rd March 2016

Fortuna is a stage in this game, with some large enemies and bioweapons. Lots of alternate paths in the maps too!

Kirby in a robot suit, good grief. I need to see more on the paper mario game before passing judgement.
