If you’ve been holding out for a localized version of Square Enix's 2012 RPG Bravely Default: Flying Fairy, Nintendo’s thrown you a bone; during today’s Nintendo Direct, a two-minute long trailer for the localized version was shown. Moreover, players will be able to experience the game with both Japanese and English voices.

The upcoming Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games for the Wii U will, for the first time in the series, allow gamers to play online with their Miis against registered friends or random players from across the world. Not only will players be able to compete online in Freestyle Ski Cross, Snowboard Cross, Short Trak Speed Skating, and the Winter Sports Champion Race, but the game will also keep score to track how well your country is performing in the online events. In other words, you'll be competing for medals!

Moreover, Nintendo will release a version of the game that comes bundled with a blue Wii Remote Plus, which is slated to be released on November the 15th alongside the non-bundled game.

Super Mario 3D World was announced not too long ago for Nintendo's Wii U. The game is set to release this Holiday season, and takes the gameplay of Super Mario 3D Land to the big screen in glorious HD. We previously knew that 3D World would feature Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, and Toad as playable characters, and we knew that the game featured a brand new cat suit, which lets players claw enemies and crawl up walls, but thanks to this morning's Nintendo Direct, we have a ton more information.

In a completely unexpected turn of events, Kirby popped up at the Nintendo Direct today in a new announcement. They only showed a brief trailer at the end of the direct, but we saw a couple details; it looked like, at least so far, Kirby has no companions with him, so this could be a wholly single player experience. Near the end, Kirby was hit by an obstacle that flattened him against the 3DS screen, presumably killing him. It looks a lot like your standard Kirby setup with a graphical style similar to Return to Dreamland. Iwata announced a 2014 release.

During today's Nintendo Direct, they briefly discussed the latest entry in the Ace Attorney franchise, Dual Destinies. While they didn't tell us anything game-wise we didn't already know, and they mostly rehashed the game mechanics and release date, they did announce something exciting. If you boot up your 3DS today, you can download a demo of the game now.

Nintendo has just revealed that SEGA's iconic hedgehog Sonic will make his return to the Smash scene, featuring as a playable character in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U and the 3DS. The footage also reveals a Sonic stage, which seems to be based on the upcoming Sonic Lost World for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.

Sonic first appeared on Super Smash Bros. Brawl as a playable character as a highly-demanded third-party icon, and now the Blue Blur is back in Smash 4. Are you excited to play as Sonic in the upcoming games for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS?

Excited to play as Cat Mario? Nintendo hopes you are, because during this morning's Nintendo Direct they teased some gameplay footage for Super Mario 3D World. We were treated to a few minutes of footage of Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, and a generic Toad, as well as more footage of Mario in the new Cat Suit.

Today's Nintendo Direct started off with some new Wii Party U footage. The first game shown was an interesting Wiimote/GamePad combo; you would use the Wiimote to pick up water from the GamePad, and then take that to the television to fill your vase, using the sensor bar. They showed a dancing game where all the players hold Wiimotes and stand around the GamePad in a circle, taking advantage of the new controller's camera. Rhythm and synchronicity seemed to play a large part. There was another series of less complicated games based around knitting, biking, and shooting aliens, as well as a board game.

When Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune's crowdfunded indie platformer Mighty No. 9 surpassed its high crowdfunding goal of $900,000 within its first days on Kickstarter, we knew this project was going places. Now, in its last hours of funding (27 at the time or writing), it's sitting at an incredibly impressive $3,100,000+, but Comcept's not ready to stop just yet. Presumably in an attempt to rocket this last day's numbers to even higher levels, the first ever in-game footage Mighty No. 9 has been uploaded to the game's official YouTube page.

Even with only placeholder assets and animations, the tiny bit of footage shown, clocking in at 12 seconds, does a lot to impress, revealing an aesthetically sound 2.5D platformer running in the Unreal Engine. Fans of the Mega Man series may even get a bit nostalgic over a few of Beck's animations.

Today, a new Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag trailer was released on Youtube, introducing you to your piratey friends, including Edward Thatch - aka the infamous Blackbeard - and Anne Bonny, Calico Jack, and Charles Vane. You get to see a bit of their attitude and their goals. Blackbeard gave our anti-hero Edward a strong piece of advice: "Caution is nothing without charisma. If a man plays the fool, it's only fools he'll persuade. But appear to be the devil, and all men will submit." So there we have some advice for you aspiring pirates; be a devil or be nothing.

I didn't think it could happen, but this trailer made me even more excited for the new Assassin's Creed. From what we've seen, it appears to have a strong story and a strong lead, but that's all we'll know until the game is released.

The trailer is available for your viewing pleasure after the jump.

Epic Games is well-known for releasing tech demos that could be games in their own right. This year's release of the Infiltrator demo was no exception, and it showed off some of the rendering features of their newest engine, Unreal Engine 4. While making beautiful games still comes down to the talent of the team behind the game, Unreal Engine 4 helps them by introducing new tools and capabilities that they didn't have before.

Now, through their Unreal Engine YouTube channel, Epic is showing some behind-the-scenes work of how they created that awesome demo.

Check out the video, and get some knowledge on what will be powering many next-gen games, after the jump!

Are you a fan of South Park? Are you also a fan of Obsidian Entertainment, known for mostly sequels titles such as Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II, Neverwinter Nights II, and Dungeon Siege III? If so, you’ll appreciate the recently released trailer for Ubisoft’s upcoming RPG South Park: The Stick of Truth. Creators of the original series Trey Parker and Matt Stone are in charge of writing and voice-acting, and with faithfully recreated graphics from the TV series fans of South Park will feel right at home.
