    • They’ll probably won’t announced anything for Mario Kart U cause it was confirmed to show it at E3. The only things will probably get on this Direct is more information on stuff we already know like more Virtual Console games or Pokemon Rumble U etc.

  1. Hopefully a release date for W101 will be announced so they dont have to waste their time showing it during their Wii U E3 Directs.

  2. Cool.. Hopefully we get a release date for the Wonderful 101, Deus Ex, and the summer update for the Wii U. It’s very interesting that they are doing this right before Microsoft unveils their next console on the 21st.

    • Nnintendo is planning to pull in press repeatedly. Basically they steer getting press and lose it on the 21st, get it back with a ND on the 30th, etc. And keep the spotlight on themselves even after e3. Its pretty ingenious. Lets see if it works

  4. I really don’t think nintendo is going to wow at E3. All those people that say “wait till E3” are going to be dissapointed. Theyll show a couple of cool games but not enough of them. Nintendo needs Huge news. Announce GTA coming to wiiu, something like that. Show something of major franchises they’re working on even if just a screenshot or announce it. I’m a nintendo fan so I want them to do well. If I only had money for one system I would not get a wiiu. I love sports but seems like none coming to wiiu. No madden, no tennis, no wwe, baseball, no golf. Fifa coming this year? I have ps3 360 vita 3ds xl wiiu. Love my wiiu and glad I bought it but I’m glad I have other systems for those not coming to it.

    • That sad moment when someone says revealing GTA coming to WiiU is bigger news than Retro’s game, 3D Mario or Smash Bros 4.

      I don’t want to live on this planet anymore.

    • Ignoring that the Wii U is different from Wii which requires a GamePad, and they will also unveil some games that require two GamePads. Also ignoring that Nintendo is going to show us what that port underneath the GamePad is for. Also ignoring the GamePad’s NFC technology. Also ignoring that Wii Did will without Madden and Wii U can be a success too. And lastly ignoring that EA does not want to put games on Wii U.

  5. Please don’t reiterate crap during the Direct. No, really, please. I mean it. I’m so serious right now as to how much I loathe the repetition of old announcements. It’s a Friday for when the news breaks out for us for crying out loud, so please don’t blasé the hell out of tomorrow!

    • I guess that this direct is for spring/summer titles such as Wonderful 101, Pikmin 3, Game and Wario, Wii Fit U, and eshop stuff. This way, they can save time for unnanounced games and games coming out winter and beyond for e3 :D

  8. Thank God that I’m staying home tomorrow and watch Nintendo Direct. Who’s hosting it for Nintendo of America… the president and COO or the global president and CEO (or both, including Bill again)?

  9. Really excited for this. Lately there has been a drought of good news for Nintendo since the last Nintendo Direct. Hopefully this one doesn’t disappoint. Honestly I’m really hoping for a Wonderful 101 release date.

    • You think everything is gonna suck.
      Every Nintendo Direct this year has been filled with announcements and information that fans actually care about; They’ve actually been better than their last couple E3 conferences.
      So what makes you think this one is “gonna suck”?
