Nintendo Direct thread - February 22

Postby Valay » Tue Feb 21, 2012 10:13 pm

If anyone wants to discuss tomorrow's Nintendo Direct(s), feel free to do so here!

There will be three presentations tomorrow: one for Japan, one for North America, and one for Europe. I'd rather not hype this like some folks have been doing (it's not E3 after all!), but we should be getting some decent news from the event.

Anyone going to be up for the shows? I know I will be... starting at 5 AM EST (want to give myself an extra hour to prepare :P).

Dear lord, the Nintendo Direct Neogaf thread is a gold mine. Everybody's been infected with the Reggienator virus. :lol

Edit: And the Ustream window is live. Already at almost 3k views. Wow.

Edit edit: Here's the Nintendo Direct JP page: http://www.nintendo.co.jp/n10/nintendo_ ... index.html

I'll definitely be watching the Japanese presentation and probably the European one as well (if only to pick up on the information I completely mistranslated in my head).

Will it be worth staying up till midnight to watch the US presentation?

When Reggie did the first Nintendo Direct, there wasn't anything too mindblowing. I think the biggest piece of news was Hulu Plus. Who knows what will happen this time though...

Apparently there seems to be a connection with this Nintendo Direct with G4TV's tease.

Also, the JP presentation is around 2 hours. Even though I can hardly understand Nihongo, I'll watch the JP stream! lol

Edit: According to this man https://twitter.com/#!/sprsk, the presentation will be 2 hours. 1 hour for some interviews/talks, the other hour is for gameplay footage. That's pretty long. Now, what game would they be showing...

Hmm... 2 hours? I don't think it'll be that long, but we'll see. Nintendo's E3 presentations aren't even that long. And I'm not sure if that robot tease is Nintendo related... Again, we'll see. :P

Oh yeah, just noticed that. Hmmm... Definitely going to be the longest Nintendo Direct so far... And man, I could use more sleep right now. :P

Ahaha, I can see that you have not succumbed to sleep. Might as well post a link for an English live blog: http://andriasang.com/con025/nintendo_direct_feb/

Edit: And we have viewers in 5 digits!

It's going to be tough staying up for this. I'm pretty exhausted right now. But it shall be done!
