Nintendo Direct news round-up: New Super Mario Bros. 2, patches, and folder-ton

As we do with every Nintendo Direct livestream, we’ve collected all the megatons, minitons, and even a folder-ton from the Japanese/European/U.S. announcements.


  • New Super Mario Bros. 2, releasing in North America and Japan this August
  • New 3DS firmware slated for April 25, adding support for folders in the menu (pictured, each folder holds up to 60 items) — watch it in action
  • The firmware update also supports software patches and updates, like the one Nintendo has planned to fix Mario Kart 7's Maka Wuhu glitch
  • The update also promotes eShop titles, as “users will also get helpful recommendations in the Nintendo eShop for titles they may like”

Hmph Hmph:

  • Animal Crossing 3DS, releasing in Japan this fall
  • 20th anniversary Wii collection of Kirby games 

My mom!:

  • Pokemon AR Searcher, an AR shooting game coming to Japan’s eShop on April 23 for ¥300
  • Pokedex Pro, an updated version of the Pokedex 3D app coming to Japan’s eShop on July 14 for ¥1,500
  • No Fire Embem: Awakening U.S. announcement
  • No Paper Mario 3DS or Luigi’s Mansion 2 talk
