Nintendo revealed a new slate of games in a surprise video today, teasing the upcoming Nintendo World Championships to be held this year at E3.
Pokémon fans have a new Super Mystery Dungeon game to look forward to, and Nintendo provided a first look at Little Battlers Experience, an anime tie-in for the 3DS. RPG fans will be happy to hear about a new Bravely Second game.
This Nintendo Direct reveals new, free content released today for Splatoon that includes a surprise for NES Zapper fans, and the reveal of an official start date and time for the Nintendo World Championships
