It was on the Japanese Stream. eShop only, dunno if its the full game or otherwise. Most likely going to be released in the west as well. Also apparently a Rolling Dillon sequel is coming.
Edit: Oh god, Mario and Donkey Kong for eShop as well. Its a new game in the Mario VS Donkey Series, and it looks like its mixing pipe dream in there as well. And DKCR3D is confirmed for Europe. Its apparently the whole game remade.

They're announcing Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D now. A 3D trailer will be up on the eShop later today.
Nintendo Direct just got over for NA, I really liked it. They started off by showing Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon for Year of Luigi!! As well a new Mario & Luigi RPG for the 3DS was shown which looks pretty cool. So many cools games, I'm gonna be broke by the end of this year lol.
They also showed off Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate and a demo version that's being released on Feb 21st. Gonna check that out and can't wait for it to be released.

I'm really looking forward to Mario & Luigi: Dream Team. It seems like you'll only be playing as Mario this time, while you use Luigi's outside body to manipulate the field, ala like Bowser in Bowser's Inside Story.
Kinda a short release window after announcement. Either Nintendo has been keeping it a secret, or it is short/rushed...
There isn't enough money in the world that I can have Nintendo take.
Hmm. Going into Luigi's dreams, huh? An interesting concept, but I'm not sure I like the idea of Luigi becoming a plot device.
Hopefully there will be moments where he can be played as as well.
Had a quick look at the DKCR3D trailer on the 3DS, the 3D is amazingly great for this game. It pops out wonderfully, and even if the footage was a bit crappy, it still did justice for the game.
So the 3DS Donkey Kong is a port or something? Why? The original game came out years ago. This is pointless.
And even worse, this means we're stuck with the Tikis again.
Woo...hoo. What boring villains.

I don't think Nintendo would just have Mario having all the fun while Luigi would be sleeping anyway, there's bound to be some 3D-overworld exploration for the pair.
Game and game OST reviews:
Was that really it? Will wondered. Was that what they were all doing, looking for someone less different? Was that what he was doing? Rachel was dynamic and thoughtful and focused and caring and different in more ways than he could count, but the whole point of Rachel, as far as Will was concerned, was that she wasn't him. There was a flaw in Katrina's logic, then. This thing about looking for someone less different ... It only really worked, he realised, if you were convinced that being you wasn't so bad in the first place.

Anyway what an awesome year for the 3DS
Looking at the trailer for Dream Team, I can only assume some parts of the games are in Luigi's Mind were you're traveling in his dreams, where as the other part of the game is gonna be on the proper OW, traveling with Luigi as well, as shown in that bit where you're in town near some shops, like BIS. Summer 2013 is shaping up to be quite a beast for 3DS, and the best is to come likely for winter 2013.
It seems attack pieces are back. I always liked that method of getting special attacks, so that's good.
I can't say I'm too interested in DKCR3D after learning that it's the exact same game as before. I thought it was a new Donkey Kong game for 3DS (I hadn't realised that DKCR is called Donkey Kong Returns in Japan). :P It's a shame, since my 3DS has seen very little use over the past few months. Luigi's Mansion 2 and New Leaf are the only 3DS games I'm going to contemplate buying over the next few months (I don't care for Gates to Infinity due to its disappointing choice of starter and partner Pokémon).
Also you don't have to buy it if you don't want it.

Depending on the price, I -might- get it. I've never played the Wii version, and I've heard it's good.
Namely, if it's $30>, I'll get it, since I believe that's what the Wii version is retailing for now.
