New Nintendo Direct trailers shows Wii U has games

There was a Nintendo Direct today and along with it a handful of new trailers to assure us that the Wii U has games coming.

Bayonetta 2

Bayonetta 2 caught my eye first but unfortunately they didn’t see fit to include a release date.

I think she still looks great with that new hairdo. But I must admit that I’ve become big fan of ladies with shorter hair as of late, so there’s a bit of bias there.

Mario Kart 8

I think I have to pick this up. It will become the first Mario Kart game that I can call my own.
