Fantasy Life, Captain Toad to feature in Nintendo's livestream
While more than half of Nintendo upcoming "gameplay" live-stream is just for the 3DS Super Smash Bros, the company's also giving some lower-profile games their time in the limelight.

The eight-hour broadcast starts at 10AM PT (1PM ET) tomorrow, with Smash 3DS going on the air at 1PM PT (4PM ET). The games starring in the first three hours include Bayonetta 2 and Hyrule Warriors, a duo Nintendo's already provided individual Directs for, but also three less high-profile games in Fantasy Life, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker and Ultimate NES Remix.
Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is the Wii U spinoff that basically takes the mushroom man's levels from Super Mario 3D World and turns them into an entire game. I went hands-on with it at E3 and was impressed by how it found different ways to present its 3D puzzling, but I had concerns over whether it could stay feeling fresh at its slow pace. The mushroom cap is due to make his solo debut this holiday in North America and January 2015 in Europe.

On the 3DS side there's Fantasy Life and Ultimate NES Remix - Nintendo only announced the latter two weeks ago, so it'll be good to see how it differs from the Wii U NES Remix games. As for Fantasy Life, Level-5's cutesy mix of action-RPG and career-building is nearly upon Europe, where it's due for release on September 24. North America gets it a month later on October 24. Ultimate NES Remix also hits Europe first on November 11, then stateside on December 5.

If you fancy whiling away tomorrow in the big N's company, you can tune into the stream on Nintendo's Twitch channel. It's hard to know if we'll see much in the way of announcements, but it's probably safe to expect a few (belated) reveals for Super Smash Bros. One bit of news not on the way, as Nintendo told Game Informer, is a release date for Smash on Wii U.
