Both Nintendo Europe and Nintendo of America have announced a new, global Nintendo Direct to be aired on June 11th. The broadcast will focus purely on updates about future Wii U games and will be available on the Nintendo Direct website at 10AM EST, 3PM UK time. This is the Nintendo Direct that airs before the start of E3, so expect lots of news for those looking forward to what Nintendo will show this year at E3.

    Can’t wait! Go, Nintendo, GO!

  • Nintedward

    So excited for this Direct. I just know Nintendo isn’t going to let us down!!!!
    Will be nice to see 3DS get a smaller direct for its self as well 🙂 Although the 3DS litteraly doesn’t need anything unveiling for it anytime soon. Its schedule is packed full of exciting exclusives.

    Show us what the Wiiu can truly do Nintendo.

    (the fact they’re announcing this so early means it’s going to be huge. They might not be doing a conference , but I think this could be more entertaining in terms of games shown than most of their e3 conferences of recent years)

        How do you make those aweso e gifs and how do you place them?

        • Clel

          I don’t make them, I collect them. For placing them, you simply put the link in, then post. Then, you edit the your post and delete the link, but the gif will stay. Here’s another one, just for the fun of it ;P :

      We will probably hear more apologizes for failing us. But this time we will all say -NO! We got it with your goddamn lies Nintendo! We have seen your true face now. The face of greed and ignorance! We are tired of your arrogance, and now it is just enough…

      … Just kidding. It will probably be a great show. Looking forward to Metroid and 3D Mario. 🙂

      • Clel

        *Whew* (wipes sweat from eyebrow). You scared me there.

        • Frank

          What time does E3 open?

          • Clel

            June 11th 12:00 P.M.

        You just made me ship my drawers!

        • thisguyjustdidthat

          And those big gas savings!

      • Nintedward

        lol 🙂

  • david jarman

    I just shipped my pants.

  • Zuxs13

    They should have done a video this week. Just a teaser video of Smash Bros. Just to put one more nail in the Xbox coffin ..

    • pfff

      I think that Sakurai said something like he’ll only be able to show screenshots of the game this summer, but maybe he’s a bit further into development, that we can see first gameplay scenes .

      • AAAkabob

        Probly just screenshots, unfortunately. With his hand hurt I can’t expect too much from this one

        • pfff

          Sadly…But I think he’ll make that up with twice the effort. That’s how Japan works I think (and it’s a damn fine trait 😀

        • DragonSilths

          Sakurai has it in playable form he has been having 1VS1 fights by himself with one hand and balancing the characters. Dont underestimate Sakurai.

      • Zuxs13

        Ok then they should show 3D Mario or Zelda. Something we know about but just show a teaser of it.

        • Moshugaani

          The new Mario will be playable, even at your nearest Best Buy! On the Zelda front, I think they’ll probably focus on A Link to the Past 2 and Wind Waker HD.

          • DragonSilths

            That Bestbuy part isnt necessarily true. Only 100 Bestbuys between Canada and the USA so 50 in each….thats not close for alot of people.

          • Moshugaani

            Yeah, you’re right. I think they’ll target the biggest Best Buys.

          • JuleyJules

            But it’s better than none at all! It’s a great thing they’re doing this time. Let’s hope they release some demos after E3 so other people can give them a try too! Demos would also let people in other countries try them before they’re released in the fall (or later).

          • greengecko007

            They said way back when they mentioned Zelda U being the largest Zelda game they have ever worked on that they were targeting a 2014 release date. I would hope that they show something about it, otherwise that could mean that they aren’t as far along with it as we hope they are. Zelda U can’t sell systems if it’s still a year or more away from release. Of course, that’s not to say that they won’t reveal other great games.

      • DragonSilths

        Sakurai hasnt said ANYTHING regarding what would be shown. He said he wont go on Twitter about Smash Bros cause it will effect his time in development and he doesnt want everyone freaking out about every little thing he says like if he mentions his thoughts on another game someone would say OMFG HE CONFIRMED SO AND SO WILL BE A CHARACTER! He doesnt want that. Iwata simply said we will see Smash Bros at E3. We will get a CGI trailer and name for the Wii U version, and an offical trailer, name and gameplay of the 3DS version. IMO anyway. We know its in playable form since Sakurai said he has been balancing characters having 1VS1 fights by himself with only 1 hand since his other hand is injured.

    • Moshugaani

      Just a small teaser for a big Nintendo game would’ve been smart.

  • Guest

    its gonna suck cock

    • pfff

      just like your dad?

  • Erik

    YES! YES! YES! Hopefully it doesn’t interfere with family stuff and all 🙁

  • Ben Ifits

    I’m freaking out man IM FREAKING OUT!!!!!!!! Three Zelda’s in development new metriod in HD Mario kart SSB new Mario three new sonic games bayonetta 2 X and a plethora of indie games!!! This is a sweet year to be a Nintendo fan!!! 😀 OMG TEH EPICNESS!!!!!!!

  • Clel

    So excited!

    • Tim van Broekhoven

      XD LMAO

    • Nintendofreak

      who buy a vita anyway

      • Petri

        Japs with the price reduction.

    • AlexG

      Miyamoto: One hit KO!

    • haha but would be even more fun if Core gamer tried to escape, Coregamer escaped, but Miyamoto cought up with core gamer. Core Gamer Fainted. Miyamoto wins.

    • They will show my new game

  • LinksCafe

    Nintendo is in a very, very good position to wow people at E3 this year. This could be something really special. 3D Mario, Smash Bros, and Mario Kart pretty much guarantee that.

  • DeedsGaming .

    Cannot wait

  • Erik

    Guess somebody doesn’t have an education here.

    • Guest

      keep sucking Nintendo cock bitch.kick rocks

      • Erik

        Hmmm… So by analyzing by your wording.. guess you didn’t even pass kindergarden no? And you are also failing high school? have a good life ahead of you 🙂

      • david jarman

        You know this is just proof that the other two companies may have more mature games, but they also have the most immature fans. Thanks for bringing them down a notch.
        I guess the best you can do is insult people and not come up with anything clever to say. Then again, I don’t know why I’m trying to speak rational to you cause you’re probably only ten years old and the only thing you probably comprehended out of this comment was”mature games”
        I look forward to your brilliant comeback and acronyms(stfu)

  • Ray01x
    • XelaFury

      That was funny!

    • Alex

      I didn’t know that F-Zero had a TV show.

  • RonnieMexico

    not goinz to watch it

  • Frank

    A bold move, expose everything just before the doors open. This is why they included Best Buy.

  • HSN1

    My body is ready…
    To rush home after school again not to miss this…

    • Frank

      Don’t you have summer vacation; and does anyone remember the ID claim? No. What a surprise.

  • XelaFury

    My reggie is body.

  • Fred

    I really hope that the rumors are true and in the Nintendo Direct they announce an eShop version of Xenoblade. I missed the game and tried to buy it (almost impossible to find for less than $100) so I rented it from GameFly and wow I am really enjoying it, but I’d really enjoy playing it on the GamePad while my wife watches Biggest Loser and The Voice.
    Come on Nintendo please give us a quick port of Xenoblade on the eShop I’ll buy it.

    • Fred

      Wow YES I would buy this day one. Nintendo please I also missed out on that game, but got to play it for about 11 hours.

  • If this direct isnt on ign or spike then they fail at life!!!

  • uPadWatcher

    I’m looking forward to see Nintendo’s most ultimate weapon that’s more powerful than fire and brimstone… more Wii U games!!!!!!

  • MetroidZero

    Things are getting serious!

  • Dominic Coradazzi

    My body is ready.

  • I don’t want to get dissapointed again so I won’t act to excited about this new Direct but I do say to Nintendo that I really REALLY hope they can and will convince me to get that WiiU after that Direct. I almost want to beg Nintendo, but I’m above begging. Ofcourse MH3U, Smash Brothers U, X, Bayonetta 2 and the new Zelda game are very interesting but it’s just not enough to convince me (Sorry guys and girls I never enjoyed 3D Mario games, just give me the classic 2D mario games much more fun to me)

    I hope Nintendo will for real use the wow factor again on more then one game (earlier this year the trailer for X made me wow and shit my pants) I want that wow factor again, seriously N don’t let some of your fans down, as I sadly know to many people who are not convinced about WiiU just yet much like me. Great console great games but at the moment not enough to convince me, most worthy games I allready have on 3DS or I can get on 3DS (RE:R have it, MH3U have it, Windwaker have it, SSBU Can also get on 3DS etc.)

  • diqus sucks

    i wanna know when the BEFORE E3 direct is going to be. thats the one im excited for because i wanna see the marios asap

    • DennisJKA

      June 11th 10AM EST

      • diqus sucks

        thats after e3 starts though D:

  • 00EpicGamer00

    Alright sooo the games that Nintendo are going to be showing or at least going to talk about at E3 are:
    Pikmin 3
    Mario Kart U
    Super Smash Bros U/4
    Wind Waker HD
    Retro studios secret project
    Sonic lost world
    Earthbound on the virtual console (and maby an actual retail version heh, heh)
    Mario and sonic at the 2013 Olympic games
    They’ll probably at least talk about the new Zelda title in development for Wii U
    Bayonetta 2
    Yoshie’s Epic Yarn
    Project 101
    New 3D Mario title
    Game and Wario
    Super Luigi U maybe
    They also might talk about Pokemon Rumble U (whatever it’s called)

    3DS Games (i’m just kind of guessing here):
    Link to the past remake
    yoshie’s Island
    Pokemon X and Y
    Animal Crossing New Leaf
    Mario and Luigi Dream Team
    Mario Golf World tour
    And maybe Mario party.

    They also MIGHT talk about Assassins creed 4 Black Flag, Watch Dogs, Batman: Arkham Origins, PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures, Rayman Legends, and Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure (And MAYBE the Kingdom Hearts HD collection 😀 one can dream, right?).

    • JuleyJules

      These all sound great for Wii U though I hope they don’t talk about Pikmin 3, Game & Wario. Super Luigi U or Wonderful 101 since they just did that in the direct on the 17th. This one should be Fall & Later games. Unannounced ones would be great and maybe news about COD: Ghosts or other 3rd party titles we’ve heard nothing about or no confirmation.
      I would like to see something about a new Sports collection or something like Wii Sports Resort – not a Mario one either – as I do miss some of those games. They might be casual but they do get people playing. Since EA sucks and is not bringing Tiger Woods to Wii U now is the time for them to release something.
      I’m looking forward to more on Bayonetta 2, Mario 3D and Mario Kart plus trying all the games at Best Buy in Canada! Looking forward to the Direct at 10 am on June 11th!

      • 00EpicGamer00

        Although I hate EA for how they treated Nintendo, EA has recently said that they are “developing games for the Wii U.” They said that shortly after the “Xboxone” reveal.
        Though I don’t really care, the only games I like form EA are “The Sims” and “Spore”

  • Tecpedz94

    Stop with all these clips and pic posts im stuck watching and reading them all now!!!!!!!! LOL

  • Christopher Westcott

    I’m really hoping that Nintendo is able to draw a lot of horsepower out of their system to show off just how capable it can be in providing adequate HD visuals.

  • Tomasz Wiercioch

    Regents- 12:30
    Nintendo Direct 10:00

  • Jeff Andonuts

    My body will be ready for all of those wonderful games that will be announced.
