Nintendo sneakily released the Direct we’ve been waiting for this morning. Go ahead and watch, I’ll wait.

What has excited you most from this announcement? I’ve been waiting almost twenty years for Super Mario Sunshine to have a sequel or re-release, so I am in the clouds right now over this confirmation. Despite the leaks, the excitement is still very real and I won’t be happy until that 3D All Stars case is in my hands!
