Nintendo Direct Summary


So Nintendo held their first direct dedicated to the WiiU and 3DS of 2016 last night. It was a tease of what we can expect for the summer of 2016. There were also some new surprises shown too. It’s probably the final stop before E3 and the reveal of NX. Here’s what Nintendo had for us last night (not in order of the Direct)
