Nintendo recently held an entire Nintendo Direct dedicated to the Nintendo 3DS and its software lineup through early next year, and along the way they revealed a ton of surprises.

This was the main focus of the discussion portion in this week's episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo-themed podcast here at Gamnesia. There's so much news and so many widely-varying thoughts ranging from glowing to burnt-out that it it can't be summarized in a text recap. So check out the discussion video above for our full thoughts, or keep reading below for a refresher on all the stories that were revealed.

For our full in-depth thoughts beyond this brief write-up, be sure to check out the discussion video above.
