Early in the morning Nintendo broadcast their latest Nintendo Direct, focusing mainly on the 3DS handheld but also revealing a few details for the Wii U. Among announcements of new 3DS titles such as Mario Golf: World Tour and Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, President of Nintendo, Satoru Iwata, also revealed new DLC for New Super Mario Bros. U that would feature Luigi.

Iwata also went into detail about how this year is being titled "the year of Luigi" with various titles featuring the twin brother of Mario. Among the titles including Luigi, owners New Super Mario Bros. U will be gaining access to new DLC that provides alternate versions of the game’s more than 80 stages. These Luigi-focused stages provide a whole new level of game-play challenge and will be available for purchase as a single download. Shigeru Miyamoto, creator of Mario and Luigi also revealed new details about the upcoming Luigi's Mansion 2, including a look at the various uses the Poltergust will have.

Also unveiled during the broadcast was two new bundles for both the Wii U and 3Ds, which includes a Fire Emblem Awakening 3DS XL bundle and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Wii U and 3DS XL bundle. The Monter Hunter 3 Ultimate bundles will be available in Australia on March 23rd, and will also be coinciding with the launch of the 3DS XL Circle Pad Pro and a Wii LAN adapted for both Wii and Wii U. The Fire Emblem: Awakening 3DS bundle will be available in late April.

Wii Street U was also revealed for those looking to wander the streets of their hometown, which will be included as a free download on the Wii U eShop. The new app brings Nintendo and Google together to allow users to travel the world using their Wii U GamePad controller.
The Wii U GamePad is integrated with Street View in innovative and accessible ways: use the touch screen to type in exact addresses to fly to your favourite places, and thanks to the motion sensors inside the controller you can move it 360° to enjoy the entire view of sights around the world. The whole family can join in, as your 360° window on the world is displayed on the TV screen in the living room. Wander around wherever you fancy going or ask Nintendo to be your guide, with recommended places to visit built into the application for easy access.

    Didn't think it was worthy of a thread so here's a bump.

    Wii U - $489

    3DS XL - $269

    http://www.ebgames.com.au/3ds-161466-Nintendo-3DS-XL-Monster-Hunter-3-Ultimate-Limited-Edition-Pack-Nintendo-3DS

    It's EBGames but I guess you can use it as a guesstimate for the price. I'm also assuming it's just a place holder since Wii U description says "Nintendo 3DS XL Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Limited Edition Pack" at the top.

    Doesn't look like the pack comes with NintendoLand either .

    They must have only just put up that bundle because I was looking everywhere for it today, cheers Glynd. If the Wii U pack does come with Nintendo Land, it might just be a download coupon on the eShop similar to American/European bundles.
