Nintendo held a Nintendo ‘Micro’ Direct for western territories today, without any advance notice or warning, and for such a low profile broadcast, they actually managed to make a fair few number of important announcements. These included more information on games that had been previously announced, such as Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon and Mario and Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, new game announcements, such as confirmation of Bravely Second coming to the west in 2016, confirmation of LBX for the 3DS launching in the west, and confirmation of Dr. Mario on 3DS launching in the west.
It included new news for games that have already launched, including Puzzle & Dragons Z + Puzzle & Dragons Super Mario Bros. Edition getting new content weekly starting today, and Splatoon getting a new map and new weapon, as well as Ranked Battle, starting today.
You can check out the full Nintendo Micro Direct for yourself above, via the embedded video. It looks like Nintendo is getting all the minor announcements out of the way now, ahead of E3, where they might be dropping some major new bombs. We’ll keep you posted on everything. Stay tuned.
