Great price for those games. I'll definitely be picking some of them up. I wondered how big the downloads will be? Damn 32GB drive

I just whacked one of these in the back of my Wii U which doesn't half help with that:

Simple as sticking it in the back Leon?

Yep, and following the simple onscreen instructions (YES to format).
You can have a couple I think.

Would they really, though? Nintendo still trend towards making big batches of announcements of new games at E3, certainly, but revealing more info on already-announced games is pretty common for a Direct.
This direct is focusing on games coming this Spring. What's considered Spring? Up until June?
Ah, I glossed over that part of the description. I still get the feeling there will be another Direct before E3, and that Starfox will be likely to get a mention there. And it's not like we're starved for content from Nintendo in the meantime.

Mega addition to club nintendo today as we all get out our stash of codes we were planning to use against the next freebie/competition sadly not likely now as the club gradually phases out.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds – Original Soundtrack

At 3000 points it's a steal and likely to be my last freebie from Nintendo for a while, treat yourselves!

Literally ordered my Mario Kart t-shirt yesterday! Ah well. To be honest last time I got a soundtrack CD from Club Nintendo I put it on eBay anyway.

Got a code last night from a kind soul, the game is basically unplayable without a circle pad pro attachment, so hopefully the new 3DS will make it worth a bash.

Can't wait till the new 3DS lands! Anyone else buying? Not long now.

Picking up the latest Pokemon and either Xenoblade or Monster Hunter to go with it, undecided which...

I've little doubt I'll end up with a New 3DS (XL), sooner rather than later!

I'm sticking with my (old) 3DS XL, but I'm jumping on the Monster Hunter train on Friday. I missed the boat on MH3U, so can't wait to launch into it this time around.

Mixing my metaphors like a professional idiot! ;)

Got my New 3DS (regular) pre-ordered and sold my two 3DS's to cover the cost! Neato!

Picking up Majora and MonHun4, too! Cannot bloody wait to play MMask again. I hope it's not rubbish! I remember adoring it back on the N64.

I've got a pre order down for the limited majoras mask console, and a standard one for playing. Pretty excited.

No surprises here but yep, the MH4U edition XL. Tempted with Majora's Mask but I only finished it for the first time a few years back.

Would've gotten the Monster Hunter edition if it came with a physical copy of the game as it does in Japan, but will settle for the black New XL - very excited!
