Yesterday’s surprise announcement of a new Nintendo Direct has fans jumping for joy and eagerly speculating what’s coming next, but it’s also one of the longest Nintendo Directs to occur since last year’s E3 Direct, which was also 41 minutes in length. As pointed out by Nintendo Enthusiast, the second longest Nintendo Direct is 37 minutes in length and happened February 14th of last year, where the Year of Luigi and the New Super Luigi U DLC for New Super Mario Bros. U was announced. With a Direct that is nearly the length of last year’s magnificent E3 presentation, it’s likely we’ll have lots of interesting news. Of course you should always temper your expectations so you don’t end up too disappointed, but what do you want to see most from today’s Nintendo Direct? You’ll be able to watch the Nintendo Direct right here on Wii U Daily at 5pm EST/2pm PST/10pm UK. local_offer Nintendo wii u stars Further Reading Legendary Pokemon coming to Pokemon Go The cost of Nintendo consoles in today's dollars Wii U gets firmware update Watch the Smash 4 EVO Finals on Disney XD Take a peek at this week’s Nintendo Dow 9 things you probably didn't know about Super Mario Bros.

Scott Wrote a blog about what I want to see…. http://www.gamasutra.com/blogs/SethSScott/20140213/210753/Quick_Predictions_for_Nintendo_Direct_213.php Bob Wilkerson Please do not disappoint Nintendo. Now is the time to pull out all the stops and show the gamers and fans that you are serious about making Nintendo on the top of the gaming world again. Leo Now its the time to announce that they bought Rare, Capcom, Sega and Square lol Skelterz Yeah and that there run by jesus san Arthur Jarret What games did Square lol make? I never heard of them. Leo Don’t mind, they value nothing, who would want an exclusive Final Fantasy, Tomb Raider or Kingdom Hearts anyway… lol ScrewAttack Exclusive Tomb Raider would be real cool…..don’t care about the other two personally. Arthur Jarret Yeah, last story is a better final fantasy than final fantasy, uncharted is a better tomb raider and kingdom hearts… well… I’ve got nothing that tops that, really. Sylux really? Never hear of square? Ok that’s surprising. Square-enix (before Squaresoft) are the minds behind Final Fantasy series Illusion of time series, chrono trigger series, Kingdom Hearts, Deus Ex, even the prequals of Xenoblade Chronicles and X. Monolith was found by one of the top players at Square-Enix who started on it’s own. But Since N64 they have ‘t done much on nintendo homeconsoles though, except Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles, but that quality is debateable. They did and do still a lot for nintendo handhelds, FF remakes, Dragon Quest Remakes and new DQ games etc. Alan Michael Hensley Don’t forget about Bravely Default!! Sylux Yes, and tons and tons more but naming every game they created I would need 500 paragraphs haha 🙂 Arthur Jarret I heard of squaresoft and square enix… I just never heard of square lol. ;p Sylux no problem, before you had Square and Squaresoft in the 90’s same company but square made for example all un-even final fantasy titles and the squaresoft team made the even final fantasy titles, that was before Squaresoft/Square bought Enix 🙂 Arthur Jarret So when did Square buy Lol to form this Square lol company? 😛 Sylux I don’t know exact dates, gotta dig to deep in the past for that, I would better say it like this: Square was a development ‘team’ and so was Squaresoft both part of the company Squaresoft, (it was best noticeable in the art styles, even FF games where ‘realistic style’ while uneven where cartoony style. very noticeable in FF7, 8, 9 and 10). Just like nintendo has a developers team for Zelda and another Developers team for Mario, but both teams work under a ‘chief developer’ which would be Shigeru Miyamoto in the nintendo example, a similair thing went on with Squaresoft. The Square team made FF1,3,5 and the squaresoft team made FF2, 4, 6 etc. that way they managed to release a new FF game every 2 years or so in the Nes an Snes days. Graeme Lynch What crack pipe have you been smoking!? Square(soft) are behind some of the greatest RPGs of all freakin’ time! Like seriously some of the best games I have ever played come from them. Chrono Trigger, FF, Secret of Mana, Super Mario RPG, Xenogears, Dragon Quest – I could go on but I will shut up for now. Please do yourself a favor and find a way to play any of the above. Who is Square? Sheesh. SmashFinale I hope they don’t disappoint. It’s my birthday today and i want to enjoy as much as i can! SP-937-215 Happy Birthday! jjbredesen 41mins of Donkey Kong yay!! lol nah i think we will get to see a lot from Hyrule Warriors because it is releasing this year, and hopefullt a lot from X, MK 8 and Smash. http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130506113004/vampirediaries/images/5/5d/Bbt_celebration-gif_medium.gif Skelterz Have a little faith i know we are all used to getting let down but they must have something interesting its not going to appeal to everyone cause everyone wants different stuff but ive got a hunch there going to talk about a retro IP. jjbredesen I think we will get a lot of good stuff, but no Retro news, They just finished DK so no chance there will be a Metroid game shown, but Hyrule Warriors will be in the spotlight, and i think X, MK8 and Smash will get a lot of news to, we will also get some new games, but donno what. JB They have been so elusive with X, I wouldn’t be surprised if they showed nothing at all concerning that. Lol jjbredesen True, or if we are lucky we will get a : Please understand that we will not show X thank you for watching and then the next 40 mins will be Rick’n Rolled XD Daniel Schwarz I’m thinking we’ll see Bayonetta 2 as well. JB … And Balloon Fight U. Except it will be a wicked 3D FPS ☺:-) Skelterz Im thinking they will blow the doors down show zelda u in its early stages a few clips just wait for it. jjbredesen Yeah, i think it is releasing this year? Daniel Schwarz Yes, they did say it will be coming out this year, but this Nintendo Direct is supposed to focus on games coming out this Spring. jjbredesen Yeah, but they are never good at staying on topic XD Skelterz No no sorry man i meant like an old school IP coming back to life not like Retro the developers i mean like retro IP. Magnus Eriksson My guess is Candy Crush and Spin the Bottle 2. Skelterz Nah its the toilet sensor, It tells U when U need a poo. ScrewAttack At least the sequel’s name would be catchy….. Poo U 2: Wii Poo too! Skelterz Damn straight … thedeciderU make this game, nintendo! Pokemonsilph http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m3md8nfZOp1rr85udo1_500.gif Magnus Eriksson Wii Pii U Skelterz i don’t know what to say other than system seller! jjbredesen oh lol, well as far as that goes, what could they bring back? I don’t consider Star Fox and F-Zero old school, so who knows? Ice climbers reboot? Skelterz fuck knows. linkzero65 i think its time they show some love to majora’s Mask PLZ nintendo make it happend SP-937-215 Reggie: “Before you leave, I’d like you to step into one more world on Nintendo Wii U.” (lost woods music plays) (Miyamoto wearing Majora’s mask and apron appears, swinging a spatula around like a sword) “Cooking Mama U: Skull Kid’s Bistro!” Wren Justin Umlauf Still hoping for Metroid. Otherwise Id like to see info on Zelda U, a new starfox, F-Zero, Hyrule Warriors, and a new game in general, but I’m sure most of this wont happen Leo I would be very happy with a new 2D Metroid aka Super Metroid style. Wren Justin Umlauf Yeah me to. Super Metroid is my favorite video game of all time. I think they could make a cool 2.5D game in the style of Shadow Complex or something. But on a 2D Metroid note, have you heard of AM2R? Leo The remake of the second Metroid game? A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Leo Nintendo should totally finance the project and release it on its systems! It is awesome! I wonder what Nintendo will do when DoctorM64 finish it, will they step in and buy it or will they prosecute him? Do you know if he has been approached by Nintendo yet? Wren Justin Umlauf I’m assuming they haven’t. My dream is that they’ll buy the project when it’s finished, or hire the guy and give him a small team to finish it and make any touch ups to make it even more legit. Then make it a Wii U and 3DS game. I don’t think they legaly can prosecute him because he’s not selling the game or making any money off of it. I just can’t wait for it to finally be finished Leo 41 minutes still not enough. Nintendo would need 4 hours to satisfy its fans lol Magnus Eriksson 24 hours for making up for their mistakes Leo That would be enough! lol Shota hahhahha good one magnus XD jjbredesen 24 hours hours of this: http://i3.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/320/945/11b.png Daniel Gonzalez Please understand….we have nothing special to direct to you. jjbredesen Yup, we will get 41 mins where they say please understand that we will not show you Zelda U, and please understand we will not show you Metroid U, also please understand that X and MK8 has been delayed and please understand that we will not show Hyrule Warriors etc. XD Magnus Eriksson I think it will start with Iwata putting up an evil smile saying: – We lied! and then 40 minutes and 45 seconds of Cyan cat. Daniel Gonzalez 41 minutes of Tingle. SP-937-215 Wii Tingle U Daniel Gonzalez …… thedeciderU fuck games, i want to hear more about the non-wearable technology. Magnus Eriksson LOL! And the blue ocean… maybe its a fishing game? Daniel Gonzalez Wii Fish U darkcreap I commented it yesterday: I am convinced he will start the Nintendo Direct watching at bananas, since he is going to present Donkey Kong. I am sure. jjbredesen Aw sorry for stealing your comment, never saw it 🙁 But yeah i will not be suprised if they use 15 min on DK… Pokemonsilph Lol XD http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m3md8nfZOp1rr85udo1_500.gif Daniel Gonzalez They can make it up by showing this at the direct. jjbredesen Now i have a better one XD, after seeing Simon’s Zora King Water Ass Meme i think it would be better to watch 24 hours of this! : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eT4RYRNO02g SP-937-215 “the Premium Pack… the Basic Pack… Premium Pack… Basic Pack… this pack and this pack… two different packs…” Skelterz Oh lol the time is going really slow i’ve been looking forward to this all day even if its just dates i don’t mind, Get this right i was going to preorder DKTF today at Game but decided i would go tomorrow as my GF said she would get it for me for valentines, There was a fucking bomb scare in the town center where i was going guess i got lucky hahaahhaa. Simon Stevens IT’S GOING DOWN!!!! Michael Rowlands looks like watch dogs will be ubisoft last game on the wii u…dont thick some then going to this site…http://sg.news.yahoo.com/ubisoft-q3-sales-show-why-wii-u-might-013028955.html Simon Stevens Fuck Poobisoft, fuck all them turd parties 🙂 now is not the time to be depressed, now is the time to be excited 😀 Alexander Kleinwechter Yeah, exactly my thoughts,3rd party devs are eventually gonna end up going back to nintendo when they see wii u will blow everything outta of the water with mario kart 8, super smash bros, and all new wii u and 3ds upcoming games. Simon Stevens Third parties are just jealous there games can’t sell, there own fault for half assery, compare them to Nintendo games…. there is no comparison, Nintendo 🙂 the superior force!, at this point, nobody else shalt have my money! Alexander Kleinwechter lol ikr 🙂 Nintendo FTW ^_^ Googs I knew changing the time for a Nintendo Direct meant something. I doubt this is going to be a ‘normal’ Nintendo Direct. Ricky__Spanish Prepare to be disappointed. … Please understand JB I’m thinking we’ll get longer, more in depth looks at all the games we currently know about (sans X, sadly) paticularly MK, Smash, Hyrule Warriors and maybe Bayonetta. We may even get locked in release dates… Hopefully we’ll have a few surprises like how NES remix came out of left field. Or we could just get 41 minutes of Iwata explaining his QoL strategy to the rage of Nintendo fans everywhere. Lol Jon Neale Can’t wait just heard we are getting a new SHINING ARK game! More in tonights direct! Simon Stevens what!? :O Jon Neale Shining series producer Tsuyoshi Sawada teased on Twitter earlier that a new entry in the Shining series will be announced tonight. Simon Stevens Would this be for 3DS or Wii U, I’m fine with either but….. Wii U would be my choice 😀 Jon Neale Hard to say I’m thinking 3ds as the psp got a re-release last January. Daniel Schwarz I think Majora’s Mask 3D will be announced tonight. Alexander Kleinwechter i dont think so really, i hope so, but i dont think so, maybe hyrule warriors though! Daniel Schwarz Any particular reason you don’t think so? I believe it’s been in production for a while, and it shouldn’t take long to make since it is a remake and they already have many of the assets from OOT 3D. I think we didn’t get an announcement before because Nintendo wanted to let ALBW sell before focusing on MM. To me, the timing makes perfect sense. Alexander Kleinwechter well, maybe, but i think nintendo wants to make an pause with remakes, they just released a zelda remake last year. Maybe they want to wait a bit longer, but who knows, maybe they will reveal it now. but i wouldnt really count on it! Daniel Schwarz We’ll find out soon 🙂 Leo Majora’s Mask 3D is definitely in the works. This is a surefire hit and Nintendo would be crazy to loose this opportunity. Daniel Schwarz Plus there have been so many MM easter eggs in other games like ALBW and Smash Bros lately. Skelterz Iwata’s going to be like and now i will pass over to miyamoto for new info on his Brand New IP And then this. Antonio Jose de Sousa I really hope we get to hear something about his new IP. Leo I hope Nintendo focus at least 30 minutes for the WiiU and leaves the rest for the 3DS. Nathan C. All aboard the hype train! (Don’t ask me how many times someone’s posted this :S) http://i.imgur.com/vpQS6ZZ.gif TheWichi YEAH! GregoryTheRainMaker I want to see release dates to the anticipated games we are already aware of..with updates with their progress, games from past system being remade for the Wii U, and some indie titles. I don’t expect anything big from Nintendo…it’s Nintendo. Skelterz PLEASE DO SOME N64 AND GC REMAKES I WANT GOEMON AND SUNSHINE NOW! Leo ReUmagined please! Simon Stevens YESH! Skelterz o zora king pray for thee goemon remake pray for thee Alexander Kleinwechter lol never thought of that, in that way. Magnus Eriksson Hahahaha! 😀 Love it! thedeciderU why not new games? why not go and play the old ones? Skelterz Cause i’d like to see those in sparkly HD running at 60FPS new games are coming that’s a given. GregoryTheRainMaker Btw I hope people don’t come from this complaining about what you didn’t see from Nintendo. thedeciderU oh, they will. they always will. Simon Stevens I love Nintendo I DO, I love Nintendo I DO, I love Nintendo I DO, OHHHHHHHHH NINTENDO I LOVE YOU! Leo I love your pijama! Simon Stevens I bought it from a girls shop lol girls have the best dressing gowns ^^ Shota it does look great on you simon WiiUPS4 Cool pic man Richard Branches Cute!!! Nintendoro Good attitude mate. Keep it that way !!! asdfg How cute! lonewolf88 aaahhh 🙂 Magnus Eriksson Apologizes takes time. 41 minutes of lies and excuses for not doing their jobs. Yen But clearly you’re doing your job whining about it. Magnus Eriksson Do you work for Nintendo? Or just being stupid? Im on your side, I want them to do their jobs so you can play games. Yen If giving me games to play what you’re going for then they’ve already been doing their jobs. I got plenty of games between the Wii U and 3DS to play right now. Now if you’re going for “there are things they can do better” like advertising, then we might be on the same side, but that goes for everyone. Magnus Eriksson Nah, we define plenty different… Yen Maybe you just need to give more of them a try. If you have and you don’t like them then that’s a different story. Magnus Eriksson I have a few games. NSMBU, NSLU, Nintendoland, Pikmin 3, W101, SMB3DW, Zelda WW HD, Tekken Tag, Darksiders II, ZommbiU, Rayman Legends, Assassins Creed 3, Need For Speed… They are all shit. Especially the Nintendo games. Very bad programmed. Yen Obviously I don’t agree with you. I got many hours out of the Nintendo games like Mario/Luigi U, 3D World, and Nintendoland. Lego City, W101, and MH3 showed lots of potential for what the console can do. Also spent a lot of time on Pikmin 3 and its DLCs. So in terms of fun, those games all did their jobs. I don’t know what you mean by badly programmed, but so far none of those games have had any system breaking glitches occur, care to elaborate? Magnus Eriksson Of course I care to. This is basically my reaction to playing Wii U. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ciR7H5qI9pI NyallJodhan LOL, sometimes I wonder if your schizophrenic. 😉 Or if you are the master of sarcasm. Or you just like trolling Nintendo fans. Brings up questions like: do you have a Wii U or not? Are you a Nintendo fan or not? Magnus Eriksson I have a Wii U, and yes Im a fan (not a fanboy though). I had every Nintendo product since NES, besides Virtual Boy and 3DS (and 2DS). And no, Im not schizophrenic. 🙂 Magnus Eriksson Im just joking around btw. All those games are great. Arthur Jarret Hm… reminds me of my latest evaluation at work… they understood in the end, though. Magnus Eriksson Lost your MiiVerse account? Didnt see you there in a while Arthur Jarret Temporarily banned… I’m sure I’ve posted a reply to one of your posts here mentioning it. I posted ‘some people are like slinkies… they’re not really good for anything but they still make you smile when you push them off the stairs’ and got banned for posting abusive and harmful content… It’ll lift next monday, so I’ll be able to enlighten miiverse with next week’s european eshop updates again… Leo Nintendo will announce their mobile strategy and the fans will have a meltdown in 3, 2, 1… Pokemonsilph All I want… is THIS! http://wiiudaily.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/majoras-mask-hd-remake-453×640.jpg GregoryTheRainMaker Possible. Pokemonsilph If this does get confirmed though… http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m3md8nfZOp1rr85udo1_500.gif Fred I think Majora’s Mask 3D is MUCH more likely, but I’m hoping for either one Pokemonsilph It is, but I am fine with either (or both XD) thedeciderU how about some brand new games? i didn’t buy a wiiu for remakes. cripes. Pokemonsilph Yes, I want new games too, but I still want this game for the Wii U or 3DS. (It’s my favorite all-time game and Zelda game) C4 Why is that by “Retro Studios” – the Donkey Kong developer? 😛 Pokemonsilph Idk that was the fake box-art I found on the internets lol WiiUPS4 Hummm I hoe to see a new Metroid game and maybe Zelda U..Maybe? Fred Sorry, you won’t see either today. (hopefully E3 though) WiiUPS4 You never know though but you maybe right..”sigh” Adrian Byrne sounds like a lot of excited people here but sadly in a few hours time we will be gutted by nothing special sorry to be a buzz killington GregoryTheRainMaker Well they can hype themselves up if they want…I’m just going to ignore people when they start complaining about being disappointed, because you should suspect this to begin with. Yen The Japanese Nintendo Direct on December 18th 2013 is 48 minutes long… Leo Iwata will resign and say goodbye, we should please understand… NOT!!!! palomino blue SNES Remix. Shota yes! with earthbound metroid and f-zero in it! Arthur Jarret Gameboy remix first… and a 40 minute harlem shake dance by Reggie Fred I’d love that almost as much as I’d love N64 Remix! palomino blue I’d buy any remix game they make as long as they keep the price acceptable. Fred Remix 2 here I come! A SNES Day Off 20-minutes of apologising for (more) delays, 20-minutes to tell us how great Wii Fit U is. Magnus Eriksson Getting bashed for destorying your hype here. But me being an asshole now will pay off at Nintendo Direct. I say Candy Crush, you get Metroid. I say Spin the Bottle 2, you get a new Zelda. So me being an asshole is in your best interest. You should love me for that, not hate me. “First I want to apologize for all the lies I have told you about the fututre of Wii U. Nintendo have cancelled Mario Kart 8 and Smash Bros, but will release them for PS4 and XBoxOne instead. But there are many great programmers out there making HTML5 games that can be played on Wii U too. Also the pad is great for watching porn and facebooking on your TV. Please understand!” (Iwata, tonight) Alexander Kleinwechter Kinda of an unnecessery post from you, it took a long time to come up with that im sure. Not sure what point you want to get across, that we are expecting too much, nahh i think we really dont, like im expecting mario kart 8 atleast 🙂 Magnus Eriksson Took me around 20-30 seconds. It basically came to me while typing. My role here is being unnecessary. So thanks. Alexander Kleinwechter oh ok, glad i could help 🙂 SP-937-215 Please understand that we will continue to appreciate your posts. ScrewAttack To be fair, the tablet controller really is great for porn. Magnus Eriksson Its actually very good for youtubing and facebooking. Ive stopped to use my laptop for that altogether. Two of my friends actually bought the Wii U only for You Tube watching on TV 😀 ScrewAttack Same! Mostly. I’ve not tried Facebook on it, but yeah Youtube is pretty good! Though the browser is far superior to the app….but I haven’t tried the app again since summer last year so it might be better now. I like to use my Wii U as a music system when we’re having house parties. Whack the big tv on, pick music videos on YT, bam! And I can do it from my party throne like a baws. Fred I didn’t know you could play music through your Wii U. Do you just put MP3s on the hard drive? ScrewAttack No afraid not, would be awesome if you could just plug and play or store on the hard drive, but console makers seem reluctant to let you do that. No, this is playing music via Youtube on the internet browser. Magnus Eriksson I had the App in the beginning, but It felt strange so I tried it directly on browser, and that was much better so the app had to go. The only thing I miss is the option to create playlists on You Tube, for some reason it wont load in new videos. But its great for parties yes. Thats excactly the context where my two friends found out they needed one. Actually thats a quite good sign that N. was on the right track with Wii U, but sadly they have not communicated this part too well. None of my friends are gamers, they only use it for You Tube-ing 😀 ScrewAttack It’s a bit of a missed trick for sure! Hopefully someone with twitter will be gracious enough to ask them why they’re not advertising that angle. Magnus Eriksson I think you have to actually use it to see why its good. Its kind of diffucult to communicate. Most people who actually tries it thinks it neat, but it take some time. Its not instant like Wii Mote, but it needs to grow on you in a way. ScrewAttack Isn’t it funny how that phrase has been around for a year now. It’s difficult to communicate why it’s good, but it is. You’d think people would be looking at all those people saying it and thinking “why IS it good? What am I missing?”. I don’t know why they’re not, but I could say plenty of horrible mean things as a guess. I’ve loved the tablet since I got it out of the box. Such a fun little thing. Jared Garcia Super secret game everyone knows about, except it now has a name. It won’t be project X anymore. Bayonetta is getting a Wii U release and buyouts are among their agenda. Fred I’d love to hear about them buying more studios! bizzy gie Flipnote Studio. It’s because of Flipnote that I wanted a DSi. But then I saw 3DS and decided to get that. Flipnote is the reason I’ve got (and currently own) my 3DS almost 3 years ago. Adam Howell I loved flipnote studio back in the day… Spent a lot of time on it. I’ve given up on waiting for the 3ds version now and doubt I’d get back into it. Maybe just create a quick flipnote to say hi. ScrewAttack 10pm’s a long way off….three hours! That’s, like, four games of Starcraft! Raptok New game… that I can buy today… Fred I wish. That was awesome with NES Remix! If I could have my way they’d talk about DKC:TF and at the end of the discussion they’d say, by the way DKC 1, 2, and 3 are in the Virtual Console starting right now! Mithiragi Rep Nintendo all day lol Alexander Kleinwechter wait your asian, i like you 🙂 Ohhh, dislikes`? Mithiragi I just gotta rep today for this Direct coming. Mithiragi Lol and you know that dude was just fooling around man. Ain’t nothin’ else. mojack411 Well this is certainly promising. Wasn’t last Feb’s ND the one when we found out about X and SMT x FE. Hopefully they continue that trend and blow our minds again. I would love to see some unexpected announcements. Can’t wait for it to start. Fred No that was last January. For this one they said just games through the end of Spring 2014 Fred I don’t think there will be anything new. Think about all the games they’ll have to talk about. It says games on WIi U and 3DS between now and the end of Spring (June 21) so we’re talking about Donkey Kong, Mario Kart, Layton, Yoshi’s New Island, and Kirby Triple Deluxe. If you remember how long the Wonderful 101 Direct and the Mario 3D World Direct were I could easily see 20-25 min for Donkey Kong and then 5 min each for the other games and we’re done. Petri Say the magic words “download Bayonetta 2 on eShop after this direct”, and I wont be sleeping tonight (most probably I will, but the next work day would be short). NyallJodhan DKTF is out next week. They won’t release any more titles this month. Kenshin0011 I just want news about X. Not getting my hopes up about anything else. Fred Their documents say we’ll get X sometime this year just not when. Kenshin0011 What documents Fred This one, http://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/pdf/2014/140130e.pdf Check out the second to last page (I think it’s page 6) RichM So…we can watch the Direct Event here? Is there going to be a link? RichM http://www.nintendo.com/nintendo-direct/archive/02-13-2014/ nvm. Found it myself. linkzero65 i think its gonna be like 30 minute of 3ds news and 11 minutes wii u talking about DKTF an Mk8 and PLEASE UNDERSTAND darkcreap You are not helping the hype… darkcreap Set a release date for X, set a release date for X, pleeeeaseee. C.S. Bailey Hopefully, it’s one of the long Directs that is actually filled with upcoming games, rather than the ones where we hear one dedication-to-commitment-to-gaming speech after another. I don’t need a consumers version of your shareholders speech, I can decipher it for myself. I’d like to see new game announcements, but will settle for release dates of known titles. Jon Neale SYSTEM MAINTENANCE TONIGHT LINKED TO DIRECT ANNOUNCEMENT MAYBE? jjbredesen New update, that adds the quick launch thing? Jon Neale Ar yes there is that! ZyroXZ2 You people think you’re hyped!? I made a whole episode about hype! HAH! *explodes* asdfg All this hype and these reaction gifs are better than the announcements themselves. uPadWatcher Five things I want to see during ND– 1) Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze; 2) Mario Kart 8; 3) Bayonetta 2; 4) Super Smash Bros. update; and 5) Official title from MonolithSoft, Inc. DragonSilths Last years magnificent E3 presentation…Are you serious? It was pretty terrible. Only like 2 good things were in it. DragonSilths It will start of with Iwata announcing they are partnering with Sony and will be putting all their games from now on on both Wii U and PS4 and will be going multiplat…then after a few awkward moments Iwata says, please understand I was just joking. Ryan Jordan probably never see it but i want to see a nintendo published anime game, not like those shitty 3rd party games, if anyone could pull off a great anime game it would be the big N Yousif Alromaithi thats more like it. Jonathan Dogey Nintendo better address concerns about the future of Wii U. Rumors flooded the internet that Wii U was on the brink of failing, nintendo going third party publisher, working on a new console. DragonSilths There is nothing to talk about. Anybody who is older then 18 knows Nintendo is working on a new console, they ALWAYS ARE. They were making the Wii U over the 6-7 years that the Wii was out. Nintendo is ONLY gaming they must always plan for the future or they die. So yes Nintendo is PLANNING their next console, just like Sony and Microsoft are. But it wont be out for 6 years or so. Nintendo wont ever go 3rd party. That’s just fact. Iwata has said himself, Mario on other devices? Over my dead little body. Wii U will be a gamecube again, which is not a failure.
