Tiny Cartridge • TinyCast

TinyCast 24! We spent some time here discussing Level’s 5 eShop surprises and Nintendo’s free-to-play experiments, but we also go in-depth on the uncertain future of Zero Escape, and why you need to play Danganronpa. There’s also a great discussion in the second half on how the teams behind these two visual novel series riffed off each other when designing their respective titles. If you love the Zero Escape series, don’t miss this episode!

Ten 3DS things you might have missed from today’s Nintendo Directs ⊟

Especially if you only watched the North American presentation, and you didn’t follow-up on all the stuff announced/revealed after the streams ended.

1. There’s a Yoshi 3DS XL system (no game included) coming out in Europe on March 14. As you can see, they did not go for our idea of making the system look like an egg, and the stylus like Yoshi’s tongue.

2. And Monster Hunter 4 will get yet another special edition Nintendo 3DS XL (based on Rajang) in Japan on March 27.

NES Remix 2 includes full Super Luigi Bros. ⊟
Blah blah blah more challenges based on Metroid/Punch-Out, et al. ANYWAY it comes with a full version of Super Luigi Bros.! Play the original Super Mario Bros. in reverse! With Luigi! And his messed-up jump somehow?
COME ON how awesome is that? It’s out April 30 on Wii U and I’m not lying when I say it has system selling potential.

Steel Diver: Sub Wars

The 3DS FPS (first-person submarine!) will be released for free on eShop today after the Nintendo Direct presentation. A “premium version” will also be available for not-free, with more subs and missions.

Little Mac joins the Super Smash Bros. Roster ⊟
Yay, it’s about time — helps make up for the lack of Punch-Out!! on the 3DS. Still no release date for Super Smash Bros., though, other than “2014.”

Nintendo Direct tomorrow at 5PM ET/2PM PT ⊟
All hail Nintendogstramus, who prophesized that we’d get a Nintendo Direct this week. Tomorrow’s Nintendo Direct for North America, which takes place in the afternoon for some reason, will focus on 3DS and Wii U games due by the end of this spring. Nintendo of Europe will have its own stream running at the same time. Oddly there’s an NIS America event tomorrow too.
Tell us about Inazuma Eleven, Nintendo. Give us the details on Weapon Shop de Omasse. Come to me, Calciobit. (we’d appreciate some Dragon Quest news too, but it’s doubtful that’s coming out before the end of spring). Thanks to Dan for the Reginald photo.

Wii U Direct trailer roundup ⊟

Leftovers:

Consensus among Tiny Cartridge staffers: Hyrule Warriors is probably going to be fun, if not good. And don’t forget NES Remix, as that really happened.

Nintendo Direct tomorrow, 9am ET ⊟
Early tomorrow morning, Satoru Claus will sneak into all of our web browsers, ready to drop present bombs down our virtual chimneys. The subject of this month’s Nintendo Directmas: ”Wii U and Nintendo 3DS software launching through spring 2014.”
So Donkey Kong, Mario Golf (maybe), Bravely Default, perhaps Yoshi 3DS, and maybe some new stuff? Calciobit still hasn’t been announced for North America – fingers crossed for that one. Or Culdcept! Or Culdciobit…

Bike Rider DX 2 Galaxy ⊟
One surprise in last night’s Japanese Nintendo Direct: the announcement of a sequel to Bike Rider DX, the eShop side-scroller by Spicysoft. Bike Rider DX 2… well, it looks nuts. Here’s a bike rider riding bike through some kinda alien clone lab?
It’s out December 18 in Japan. I guess I gotta get in on this Bike Rider DX stuff!

Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy out Feb. 28 ⊟

The good thing about waiting four months after the European release is that there will be lots of good English-language FAQs. 

N-not that I need help with puzzles or anything.

A buncha new stuff in Super Mario 3D World ⊟

If you’re worried about Mario “spoilers,” don’t watch this video from Nintendo Direct. For me, though, it’s impossible to “spoil” anything I care about in a Mario game, like the feel of the jumping and the thrill of reaching an impossible secret through meticulous use of available platforms. 

But your mileage may vary!
