Probably because they thought one of the other two would unveil a new console and didn't want this overshadowed by all the fawning over said new console.

Was that FF8's card game music I heard?

That's enough about DIY crafting, I want my SSB trailer thanks.

Not bad for a last stand

Looks so much sleeker than the original. Top is finally the same colour as the bottom!

Was hoping for a black one but I think I can live with the blue lid.

I actually prefer the original design.
The larger one also looks like it's actually a little too big compared to the original really.

Japan's Wii last hurrah is DQX, we get Inazuma 11.

I love Inazuma (modern day Hurricanes innit) but I think we got the short straw here

English language Direct was garbage compared to the Japanese one. Spent half it talking about strawberry floating Pokemon.

Dubstep for the Heroes of Ruin trailer :lol:

That Pokémon typing game is pretty damn good, was researching the Japanese version at work last month. Actually quite surprised to see that over here, only flaw with it is you need to know the names of all the shitty new Pokémon to get the best scores, also, the keyboard is a bit small.

Finally, Layton 3DS! These Nintendo Directs are putting the E3 ones to shame.

No trailer, back to hating for FE in 2013

Finally a 3DS XL. I have wanted this since before launch of the original. Also DS games will be bigger at 1:1 :datass:

Got to wait until 2013 for Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing though :x

Luckily Paper Mario, Luigi's Mansion and Layton will keep me busy.

Question: why didn't they mention the 3DS XL at E3?

Wait so they've given Smash Bros to a developer who's only track record with Nintendo franchises is ruining Starfox :fp:

Oh my god. Just saw Animal Crossing 3DS trailer on Youtube.

I'm so excited for it :wub: Impressed with this conference, no idea why some of these aren't at E3, but oh well. Pleased with info so far :wub:
