Nintendo of America has confirmed via Twitter that it’s holding its own Nintendo Direct presentation tomorrow. The company promises new details on upcoming Wii U and Nintendo 3DS games. The presentation will begin at 9am PT. Nintendo UK confirmed earlier today that it’s also holding its own Nintendo Direct which will start at 5pm GMT. What are you expecting to see?

Thanks to everyone that sent this in.

  1. What Sickr or Alba didn’t include is that the Nintendo Direct is only covering ANNOUNCED games, so this means Pikmin 3, Wii U Fit, Wonderful 101 and other launch window games (likely release dates), and for the 3DS, we have Luigi’s Mansion Dark Moon, Animal Crossing New Leaf, Fire Emblem Awakening. I know Smash is ‘announced’ but it’s still very doubtful to have anything to show. It was prematurely announced. No new Zelda, Mario, Star Fox, Metroid, F-Zero or anything of that nature. I’d be surprised if there’s a new game announcement.

    • Thanks for the heads up. Third parties should be the ones taking advantage of Nintendo’s generous ways this generation. When Zelda, Metroid and 3D Mario arrive third parties shall be crying again.

      • Yeah, same thing I’m thinking. It’s a bit too soon. They’ll want to save some of those heavy hitters and spread them out the console’s life; Not pile everything within the first year.

        I expect we’ll start seeing more of those titles streaming out starting maybe in 2014.

      • I thought about it it being too soon after mk7 but then I thought about nsmbu being released like 3 months after nsmb2. I do hope smash comes out in 2014

      • I played the Japanese demo (on PS3) for EX Troopers and really liked it. But I heard something about them not bringing it to the West. :(

        Anyway, evidently this Nintendo Direct is just for games that have already been announced previously.

        • It could include a localization of it, but as it hasn’t been announced for NA/Europe, I’m figuring we won’t hear about it tomorrow, but perhaps in the next one?

      • I do have a Wii U but I don’t post my IDs for my gaming systems online. I really only add people I know personally, work with in the gaming industry, or get to know over time. :/

        Sorry. If you have a Twitter and follow me, I’ll follow back. If we talk a bit on there I’ll likely add you eventually! =p

            I wouldn’t exactly say I work in the gaming industry (although I did a few years back), but I do work along with those who are part of the gaming industry.

            Anyway, what I said still stands. I don’t just add anyone. =p

        • Ah I see, I understand. You work in the game industry?
          And I’m considering getting a twitter but I haven’t found any convincing selling points…how is it better than Facebook?

          • I work with the industry. I wouldn’t consider myself part of it.

            Also, there is a large gaming community presence (both industry and consumer alike) on Twitter. I’m not a fan of social media, so I don’t use Facebook but I do have a Twitter to keep up with the happenings in the industry and with a few of my contacts and to promote gaming.

            • Can you talk about what you do or is it sensitive? News generally releases on Twitter first? Or is the appeal that you can follow favorite composers/designers/studios and see their updates?

  3. Its got to be Yoshi’s island, think about the rumors and the guy that told about the awesome game to be announced during the spike awards.

    • They’re probably unrelated, but you never know. The list that said Yoshi’s Land also said Metal Gear Solid and some game we dont know of, it could just be a test they ran, but then again it might not, but i dont think the VGA announcement is it, its probably something Capcom related, maybe Mega Man.

  4. Expecting to see: Updates on games we already knew about.
    What I HOPE to see: That future franchise titles are being worked on and that an update for the laggy Wii U menu is on the way.

    • That’s exactly what I was thinking. Nothing new, just release dates of Nintendo’s “Launch” window games for Wii U, and hopefully timeframes (or release dates) for those huge 3DS games: Luigi’s Mansion, Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem.

  5. Love these Nintendo directs. Don’t think we’ll hear about software being released in retail this month. Think we’ll hear more about the release of tvii and eshop releases.

  6. I gave up long ago about trying to watch these Nintendo Directs live. Because no matter how much I try to figure out the accurate time they’ll aire in my time zone, I’m always wrong. Like last time, it was already over when I tuned in. Oh well, I’ll find out what happened here on My Nintendo News.
