Around the Web

  • SayHeyJayHey

    Today is the anniv of Mario 3. Maybe we’ll get an announcement we finally get it on Wii U VC tomorrow :-D Maybe more infos on Mario Kart 8 and Smash

  • D2K

    Alright….here we go. Better drop some bombs tomorrow Iwata. This is the time to let the world know that you are serious about making changes. Obviously they can’t and won’t reveal everything, but their needs to be at least one super-megaton bomb dropped tomorrow that no one saw coming.

    • MajoraMan28

      It’s preety obvious they’ll show Diddy Kong for Smash along maybe Dixie or Funky Kong for Smash. Tomorrow is the launch date of DK Tropical Freeze in Japan.

      • Thomas_NE

        Thing is, this is showing at like 7 am in Japan. Which makes me think there’s likely not even a Japanese direct.

    • ronin4life

      They won’t. It says right there: Spring 2014 line up.
      People need to stop putting such needless stock into ND when they come with such specific pre show info.

      • Thomas_NE

        Last one was supposed to be “up to spring 2014″, but then they announced Hyrule Warriors, Rosalina and a bunch of other things that are coming much later in 2014.

        I’m not saying “get ridiculously hyped”, btw, just that they’re likely to show things for the summer/autumn. Maybe a big announcement.

        • ronin4life

          Sure. The problem is, that IS exactly what everyone does- “get ridiculously hyped”.

          And that is all I am saying. Of course there could be something: I never denied that. But what I do not expect, and we should not so readily expect every time a ND is announced, is a JAN2013 repeat.

      • D2K

        People also need to stop acting as though just because a ND has a particular focal point it doesn’t mean that they are limited to discuss that and only that. Pretty much every ND that has had a specific focus had information outside of that announced as well.

        It’s wrong to expect an E3-level ND (although that is what they need right now all things considered) but to act as though there won’t be any discussion other than the games slated for Spring 2014 is also incorrect

        I expect at least one announcement of something new.

        • D2K

          It seems like my expectation of something new has been confirmed now that Next Level Games has tweeted about the ND. No one was expecting to hear anything from them.

  • sonicfan1373

    :D

  • Mr Ninty

    this is the first site that mentions the N-direct of the 5sites that i visit. so congratulations.

    but 10pm uk that is i think 11pm where i live so it will be kind of late but if its my kings bidding i will obey

  • Thomas_NE

    I made plans for tomorrow evening! Can’t you announce these a week in advance, Nintendo? :)

  • TheSneakyLizard

    I hope they surprise us with a Metroid announcement, though they should wait till E3.

    • Thomas_NE

      I’m in desperate need of a new Metroid, they haven’t released one since Metroid Prime 3.

      • http://people.ign.com/oskitake Oskitake

        What about Other M? It was after Prime 3.

        • Thomas_NE

          I don’t know what you’re talking about ;)

          • superphillip32

            I actually enjoyed it. I should play it again to see if my opinion will change.

          • http://mmx-engine.blogspot.com/ Game Dragon

            I enjoyed the game a lot too. People bash on the characterization, but I atleast thought the gameplay was stellar.

  • Dyhego Silva

    Inazuma Eleven in USA! Inazuma Eleven in USA! Inazuma Eleven in USA! Inazuma Eleven in USA! Inazuma Eleven in USA! Inazuma Eleven in USA! Inazuma Eleven in USA! Inazuma Eleven in USA!

    • sonicfan1373

      I have a sneaking suspicion that you want Inazuma Eleven released in USA :D

      • http://people.ign.com/oskitake Oskitake

        What tells you that? He obviously want Smash Bros.

  • bigshynepo

    I doubt we see Bayonetta or X info tomorrow. Only info on Smash (new characters, release window) and Kart (launch date) will be found with maybe a Dragon Quest in there and maybe a Zelda Hyrule Warriors launch window.

    • Jon Turner

      Another DRAGON QUEST would be GREAT for WiiU, especially a remake. That would set the system on fire there.

      • bigshynepo

        I’d be very surprised to see a localized DQ X for Wii U out here before Winter 2014. Probably Japan by Q3, NA by Q1 FY15

        • Jon Turner

          It would. I do expect Japanese third party support to be better than the West either way, though; I’m pretty disillusioned at the way the West has been treating us. Granted, Japan DOES have some nervous developers, too, but they’re not as bad as the west is IMO. Japan has supported 3DS quite consistently, and hopefully they’ll do the same with WiiU.

  • Blake Good

    They need to announce SMB3 as a download and SMBDX as a Club Nintendo freebie to those who link their NNIDs to their 3DS systems before March 1, 2014 and make SMBDX avalible to those on April 14, 2014 (which happens to be my birthday).

  • Gabo

    Reveal anything Smash related and I will be happy.

    • D2K

      Real-time gameplay footage not mashed up in a trailer sequence would be nice.

  • kthanxyousuck

    About time. I’m ready for a Kirby Triple Deluxe, SSB and Layton vs Wright release dates for NA please!

  • Zombie_Andrew

    Again Nintendo disappoint with a Nintendo Direct tomorrow at 10PM focusing on games coming out this Spring on Wii U and 3DS…Games that we already know about, and quite frankly don’t care about seeing again in a Nintendo Direct. Unlike the kick-ass Wii U Direct of January 2013, I suspect an absolute bore fest. Wake me up when you have important news to share with us Nintendo.

    • http://people.ign.com/oskitake Oskitake

      Wow, whenever I throw a party I will invite you. Remind me.

      • smashbrolink

        Every party needs a pooper that’s why they invited him.
        Party pooper.
        Party poopeeeeer…..

        • Zombie_Andrew

          I only speak the truth. I will take back what I said IF they actually show off Zelda U

  • Perico Palotes

    There is a tweet of platinum games about this, so maybe there will be bayonetta 2 news or something about their new game.

  • Mr Everything

    Im predicting that Luigi‘s mansion U 2 will be announced for the wii u and it will come out BEFORE mario kart 8
