    I hope Capcom releases an Okamiden HD. That game desperately needs it.

    Nice reveals, guess the 3DS got some good titles coming even this late! I'm interested in Wario Ware Gold (on Wario Ware I have well over 600 hours and crazy high scores:rofl2:), Bowser's Inside Story and Bowser JR's Journey (because NDS Bowser's Inside Story was a blast) and Luigi's Mansion (because it was epic and while LM2 is pretty good, 1 was more fun)!

    However, I gotta ask, if you made a thread to announce the direct already, why make a bunch of extra threads for each game announced? Make one for everything, less flooding of the forums. This happens a lot and feels kinda stupid seeing it happen so many times...
