Nintendo Direct Gives Plenty of Awesome Gaming Goodness

On November 12th, Reggie Fils-Aime and Bill Trinen took to stage with Nintendo Direct to give fans of Nintendo a look into their plans for 2016. Some reveals were expected, while some, came totally our of left field. If you didn’t manage to catch up on the Nintendo Direct, we’ve got narrowed down the important points for you.

That image above is not a trick. That is Cloud Strife of Final Fantasy VII and he will be appearing as a playable character for Super Smash Bros. A reveal that was probably the most unexpected, this marks the first time a Final Fantasy VII character appeared in a Super Smash Bros. game. Here’s what Nintendo had to say about the Buster Sword wielding character.

A New Challenger Approaches!: Cloud Strife, the legendary protagonist from the classic RPG game Final Fantasy VII, will enter the battlefield as a playable fighter in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS in the future. A special video presentation will be released in December, which will share more updates about the hit fighting games.

While Cloud being in a Nintendo is quite the news, there were some other great reveals that made the Nintendo Direct quite memorable for fans. Here’s a few that was outlined from Nintendo:

Zelda Twilight Princess HD

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD: Originally released for Wii and Nintendo GameCube systems in 2006. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD is a visually remastered remake of one of the most critically acclaimed games in The Legend of Zelda series. The new game launches on March 4 in a bundle with a detailed new amiibo figure modeled after the Wolf Link and Midna characters in the game. The game will also be compatible with five other The Legend of Zelda amiibo from the Super Smash Bros. series. The game’s iconic soundtrack will be offered as a bonus for fans who pre-order the game from select retailers.

The Legend of Zelda for Wii U (name not final): Next year marks the 30th anniversary of The Legend of Zelda series. And with that comes The Legend of Zelda for Wii U, the next entry in the storied franchise. During the Nintendo Direct presentation, it was revealed that certain saved data from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD on the Wolf Link amiibo can be carried over to the new game.

Pokemon Red Blue Yellow Remake

Where it all Began: The original Pokémon games – Pokémon Red Version, Pokémon Blue Version and Pokémon Yellow Version – are coming to the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS on Feb. 27, the same day that the original games first released in Japan in 1996. And there’s no need to pull out those old Game Boy Game Link cables while playing. Using the wireless communication on Nintendo 3DS, players can trade Pokémon with other players.

Two DRAGON QUEST Games are Better Than One: The lineup of RPGs on Nintendo 3DS continues to grow with classic games DRAGON QUEST VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past and DRAGON QUEST VIII: Journey of the Cursed King, both remastered for Nintendo 3DS and coming in 2016.
