Screenshot Saturday: Nintendo Direct in Full Effect


Nintendo sent over a massive pack of screenshots from its latest Nintendo Direct web stream a couple days ago, so that’s where things begin on this edition of Screenshot Saturday. Nintendo fans are in for a real treat with new pics from Wii U standouts like Super Smash Bros., Monolith Soft’s RPG tentatively titled X, Bayonetta 2, and Mario Kart 8, as well as upcoming 3DS titles like Yoshi’s New Island, Kirby: Triple Deluxe, Mario Golf: World Tour, Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy, and more.

Nintendo games grab the headline, but you’ll also find updated galleries for the PS4 version of Final Fantasy XIV, South Park: The Stick of Truth, indies like Broforce and Cloudbuilt, a selection of newly announced PS3/Vita titles from NIS America, and DLC updates for heavy hitters like Assassin’s Creed IV and Borderlands 2.
