Final Nintendo Direct of 2013 offers a look at upcoming titles

Updates on Super Smash Bros. and Mario Kart 8

Posted on

Nintendo has hosted the final Direct show of 2013, offering a glimpse at the upcoming titles for the next year, as well as some announcements.

Rosalina, who was introduced in the Super Mario Galaxy games for Wii and Super Mario 3D World for Wii U, will be a playable character in Super Smash Bros., accompanied by her starry friend, Luma. The game will launch in stores and the Nintendo eShop on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS in 2014.

In Mario Kart 8, new playable characters include Rosalina and various "Baby" Nintendo characters, like Baby Mario and Baby Luigi. New course settings include an airport, the desert and high in the clouds, and vehicles include UFOs, four-wheel ATV buggies, standard karts and bikes.

For Sonic Lost World, a new Nintendo-themed level Yoshi's Island Zone is now available for free. Done in a Yoshi art style, the level has Sonic speeding through areas filled with pipes, coins, Shy Guys and Piranha Plants.

Finally, startng today golf becomes the third sport added to the Wii Sports Club lineup, joining bowling and tennis. Golf asks players to place the Wii U GamePad controller on the floor in front of their TVs. Players can then use a Wii Remote Plus to swing at the ball on the ground, as first seen in promotional Wii U videos. Wii U owners can play a free 24-hour trial of Wii Sports Club, which lets players sample all three sports. The trial offer is open to everyone, even to people who previously sampled the 24-hour free trial. A Club Pass for the full golf game, allowing unlimited access, can be purchased for $9.99. Boxing and baseball will be coming to Wii Sports Club in 2014.
