Nintendo Direct: Luigi’s Mansion 3 Announced, New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, Isabelle in Smash Ultiamte

It was another big Nintendo Direct with announcements ranging from a new character intro in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate to the reveal of Luigi’s Mansion 3. You can watch the entirety of the Direct in the video above.

Luigi’s Mansion 3 opened the show with a short gameplay trailer. Expect it to release on Switch in 2019.

New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe is a port of 2012 game for the Nintendo Switch. Every course returns and Toadette is now a playable character. Toadette has the ability of finding a power-up that transforms her into Peachette, essentially a Peach look-a-like with an extra jump. Set to release on January 11, 2019 for Switch.

Along with a teaser for a new Animal Crossing headed to Switch, a new Smash Ultimate character reveal trailer ushered Isabelle into the roster.

Of course, every Nintendo Direct comes packed with a variety of announcements but these three were the biggest of the bunch. Share some of your favorite announcements in the comments!

    I’m so HYPED for Luigi’s Mansion 3!

    I might pick up Luigi’s Mansion 3, even though I’ve never played any of the previous games. Also, Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn and Mario & Luigi are practically must-buys for me! I know the 3DS is “dying” but I just gotta XD

    Yoshi’s Crafted World looks great, I might go for that one too. I also can’t wait for Animal Crossing to take over my life in 2019.

    Also, great to see Petey Piranha playable again in Mario Tennis Aces! His first playable appearance in over 10 years, believe it or not…
