    What where did that come from and why was there no notice beforehand anywhere?
    I'm so confuse...
    EDIT: Watching it now, not a direct?

    The super horn.... oh god. I think the blue shell has a new rival for most anoying weapon ever. (15mins into the video for footage of it)

    ...But it can defend against the blue shell!!! Praise the lawd! xD

    Ok guys Nintendo have really got their game face on. Near the end of the video Reggie appears and tells you that if you buy and register mario kart 8 and you get a free download code for one of 4 games. (new super mario bros u, wind waker hd, pikmin 3 and wii party u) that is insanely tempting. I see alot more Wii-u's being sold with that kind of offer. (Around the 31 min mark in the video)

    Well played Nintendo, Well played.

    It definitely is and if they make this offer worldwide there'll be a lot of people going for it. I'm tempted to get Wind Waker HD with this, if I pre-order it.

    Why are these never frontpaged anymore :(
    I've missed the last 2 directs.

    It was a pretty good one too. My favorite part is the free game :D

    Even though Wii Party U isn't really that great a game, i'm really glad that they made it available as I have the other 3 games, so there's just another little party game to play with guests, I am thoroughly not used to having so many offline multiplayer games on one system xD

    I agree with this thinking altho i do think you will be suprised with that game. I would actually rate it higher than most of the newer mario party games. The minigames are fun if you are the type of gamer who has friends/family to play with regularly and its certainly not shovelware. Far from it.

    I'll just get wind Waker HD and sell my physical copy. GameStop still offers a decent trade in price for the game so that could effectively be used to pay off most of MK8 considering they have a 40% bonus trade deal GOIG on right now. Then guys only have to pay like $15-$20 to get MK8 AMD Wind Waker digitally since you can get it free.
    I are the smartest smarty.

    I meant the Miis or whatever hosting the Direct, not the ingame characters.

    It would have been cool if Nintendo had announced a new Plus Pro Controller (with triggers) just to play Mario Kart 8 with more precision when accelerating and stuff, but maybe they're holding it off to announce for Super Smash Bros. 4.

    Other than this, I'm excited to try out MK8.

    the pro controller has triggers and it would be more than adequate to play mk with?
