I can't wait to purchase the Mario Kart 8 DLC next week! I also just downloaded the Pikmin Shorts and will watch them after diner tonight. Wink
I'm curious how long the Pikmin shorts are. I love the Pikmin series but I'm worried that they will be too short.

Personally I'm most excited for Splatoon, it looks like pure fun. I'm also really excited for Codename S.T.E.A.M. I'm glad we're getting another strategy game, love that genre.
There are three in total, one is under 2 minutes, one is just over 8 minutes, and the third is nearly 13 minutes long so in total it's about the length of a half hour anime if you take out the commercials! They're pretty funny as well. Wink
What about N64 and GCN? Sad
I'm with you Zack, I wanted more VC (although I would've liked N64/DS)
I was also disappointed by the lack of VC related news.
I was also dissapointing when Miyamoto brought up Flipnote 3D, yet we still don't have it Sad
At least the Zelda purists can rejoice now that Majora's Mask 3D is officially a thing. Smile
