All of the Nintendo Direct events took place last night, and now Patrick and Neal have gathered to discuss the bountiful amount of news.

A 3DS revision, Smash Bros. talk, and paid Mario DLC are all among the topics discussed. Other topics covered include the European game Freakyforms Deluxe, Nintendo's 8-bit summer, and some Nintendo games being pushed to 2013.

If you ever have anything you want to tell us, feel free to write in.

Are they still going to be selling the regular 3DS like they did with DSi/DSiXl or am I going to be left with an old dated model like when they released the DS Lite?

I would assume so. I think this will be a DSi/DSi XL proposition.

Yeah, the DS Lite was an improvement to the general model, whereas this is more like an alternative, since some people would prefer a console that isn't the size of a Toaster.
