Super Smash Bros: So, Sakurai recently said, he actually wants Geno from Super Mario RPG to be playable in Smash. I guess he was made a Mii Costume because they could only have one Square-Enix owned character. So, you Geno fans, get hype for Smash 5!
Pokemon: We got a Nintendo Direct for Pokemon's 20th anniversary... and it was literally 6 minutes, half of which was devoted to a video showing fans. Amazing. Also, the next generation, Pokemon Sun/Moon was announced... but they were leaked the day prior, so there was no surprise. Really the only "news" from that Direct was that Red/Blue/Yellow were made available on Virtual Console the next day (2/27), and support the Pokemon Bank app. Kinda disappointing.
Mortal Kombat X: From a recent trailer showing off Alien, we saw that some existing stages are have Stage Fatalities added to them. I mean, we already knew The Pit had them, but now we know others are too. Anyway, the Refugee Camp stage has soldiers in the background shooting the loser to pieces. Pretty cool.
So, that's the news for the week. I honestly can't think of how to close out this post, so... yeah.
HBM, signing out.
