Awwww yes, the moon is falling! I couldn't be more hyped for MM3D! I've been waiting for this since OoT 3D!

Also those other games look good. I'm still really hyped for Splatoon.

Captain Toad looks interesting. The inability to attack is an interesting concept, making it a real puzzle platformer. I'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

Sonic Boom still looks terrible.

Kirby game seems interesting, but I probably won't get it. Nintendo's taking too much of my money.

Nintendo won't stop until I buy some Amiibos, and I'm about to cave. ._.

The rest is sorta take it or leave it.

I am violently trembling in anticipation of Monster Hunter 4.

Also, might pick up Majora's Mask. I never played it.

I bought Majora's Mask on Virtual Console and I really like it.  I recommend you do pick it up.

I had MM with the Zelda collection CD that game with the GameCube, but never got round to finishing it. Now's a good enough excuse as any I suppose.

The Yoshi Amiibo is so adorable I think I might go preorder it xD (also, hilariously, Yoshi is actually the best value Amiibo being the only one usable in 4 games)

Splatoon + MK8 DLC are the only things I'm that bothered about tbh, although I might look into Xenoblade Chronicles because I've heard good things about it

Sorry, I was saying I do like it, as in that and MK8 DLC are the only thing I'm glad are coming out. There's nothing else I'm really bothered about getting.

Ah.

Xenoblade is hit or miss.  I recommend somehow renting it before buying it.  I personally love the game and think it has an amazing OST but others disagree.

What about Majoras Mask though?  Otherwise I feel kind of the same way (although idc for Mario kart much).

Tbh, if I look at Xenoblade and it seems like the sort of game I'd like I'll just buy it because I need wii u games anyway xD

But Majoras Mask doesn't appeal to me at all, not really a fan of Zelda games (only played spirit tracks xD), but I guess that may change when I get Hyrule Warriors eventually, because I think I'll prolly get that at some point.

Also, kinda irrelevant, but what's Nintendos big deal with Nov 28th (UK) and 21st (US)? xD like... Everything's being released then xD

At least for the US it's a week before thanksgiving break which is a marquee time for releases.  It's also a Friday making it perfect for weekend releases

From my understanding spirit tracks wasn't that great.  Most of post wind waker Celda games didn't seem that great.  Guess Zelda games without ganondorf save Majoras mask were never great.

^I wasn't a fan of spirit tracks. It wasn't bad, I just got stuck after beating the fire place.

My brother and I can't wait for splatoon. It looks like so much fun.
