Nintendo Direct-4/17/13: More for the Nintendo fans / by Benjamin Sawyer

Yet another Nintendo Direct and yet another reason for their fans to be happy. A firm August Release date was set for Pikmin 3 on the Wii-U (supposedly the system seller for the time being). The next installment of the Mario and Luigi RPG series on the 3DS also comes in August, but  surprises came from another Yoshi Island game on the 3DS and Square-Enix's acclaimed RPG, Bravely Default, finally being announced for a 2014 release date in the west, published by Nintendo no less The shocker though is a direct sequel to The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, considered by many to be one of the greatest games of all time. Oh and how can we forget that Nintendo finally loosened their ass and let Earthbound be re-released through their Wii-U Virtual Console system. Nintendo has really done themselves a favor by presenting these Nintendo Directs, they kinda have to but it really is an interesting way to hype up their fans and gain support.
