The Wii U hasn’t performed as well as Nintendo hoped last year after a strong launch, but that hasn’t stopped Nintendo from reassuring current and potential customers. Nintendo of America tweeted today that a Nintendo Direct before the start of E3 will address the three main games most people are looking forward to, including the new Smash Bros., 3D Mario, and Mario Kart.

This Nintendo Direct will air sometime before the E3 trade show that begins on June 10th. The Nintendo Direct will probably coincide with the promotion that Nintendo has revealed, where certain E3 demos for unreleased games will be playable in select Best Buy locations across the country.

      lol , seen it on IGN (always check the top comments on the Nintendo articles) I nearly pissed my self laughing.

      • HSN1

        I bookmarked that IGN article because there were just SO MUCH awesome gifs in the comments, I died of laughter XD

      This will go viral within days

      You’ve done it once again.

      • HSN1

        It takes me years to get a top comment, but when I do, it’s twice a day.

        • bizzy gie

          I don’t always get top comment, but when I do, it’s usually at the bottom.

    • Shaise Mughal

      Wow! Where do you find these gifs!

  • uPadWatcher

    Iwata is preparing everything in his arsenal to go deep impact before the doors open for E3!

  • aldo2410

    This is why I bought my Wii U, for this games that are always awesome in gameplay and never are a deception

  • Erik

    Alright! Just give it time so that it can gather info and details about it. We all don’t need to let them rush and by then its going to be messed up. Lets hope that they can give new light about characters and so on 🙂

    I already read an article about this on another website.

    E3 is on June 11th and they are rumored to discuss these games on June 10th.

    They are rumored to air another Direct the following day at E3 called E3 Direct.

    They are also rumored to have another Direct on June 12th

    And then another one on June 13th.

    4 Nintendo Direct’s in 1 week. If Nintendo does this than Sony and Microsoft’s big conference will look small compared to Nintendo’s 4 Directs

    • Savion Tucker

      Then why not just have a Press Confrence? That’s a pretty stupid decision. Only Nintendo fans are going to watch these Nintendo Directs online. Other gamers will be too distracted by the actual E3 Presentations.

      • D.M.T

        Nintendo will air a Nintendo Direct AT E3 which means that everyone watching E3 will watch Nintendo’s E3 Direct and can watch the other Directs after E3. This is a smart move, not a stupid one. A big conference is more expensive and worse than Nintendo Direct. 4 of these will make other E3 presentations look small.

    E3 is getting closer and I’m getting excited to see the progress Nintendo are making on their titles. I am also glad they take their time with their IP’s. It might sometimes be a long wait, but getting their titles when they are given the care they deserve makes it worth it when they are polished, fun and just work. Other companies should take notice and not rush games and throw them out still broken needing months of patches to fix. Games are works of art and like great art it should be appreciated and cared for. not thrown out for a quick buck. Patience = Quality. Thanks Nintendo ^_^

  • Nintedward

    Bring it on!

  • Ducked

    People will flip out once they hear about Smash Bros.

  • Once this effort fails, then maybe Nintendo will be forced to admit defeat. I have a feeling that all who were waiting on Nintendo’s own games already bought the Wii U.

    • Holyfire

      Nintendo dealt with far more gaming electronics and generations thsn either Sony n M’soft. Nintendo are fine, and these games will happily jump sales. Little doubt about it

    • Not true there are alot of people waiting on the big first party titles before buying a Wii U, just like there where some early adopters of Xbox 360 the main crowd of Xbox fans came after the big first party titles came out (Halo 3). The same will happen with the Wii U.As 3rd party games come out sales will steadily pick back up then the big 1st party titles will release and sales will increase greatly.

      • Ducked

        Don’t mind him, he’s just a sad troll.

        • I know haha just like to correct people 😉

          • Ducked

            And make them look stupid 🙂

          • Guest

            Yep (evil laugh) muhahaahahaha 🙂

        • Squid

          Aaaaaaaagreeed! 😛

    • jay


      I’m waiting for Wii Fit U and Smash Bros. And I haven’t bought a Wii U.

      You Fail 🙁

    • Ash Kirkwood

      Seriously dude do you have anything better to do than constantly pan Nintendo and their IP’s. If you don’t like them then why do you even waste your time on Nintendo forums.

      Silly, Knowledgeiswhatsup!

      • D.M.T

        It’s Ignoranceiswhatsup, not knowledge or common sense

    • kenny Johnson

      I know I shouldn’t feed the troll, but I know quite a few people who don’t own a Wii U who are looking to buy one. For most, the obstacle has been price. For the others, they’re waiting for the big 1st party titles

  • Guest

    If this is announced before E3, I can’t wait to see what is announced at E3.
