New Nintendo Direct coming tomorrow

A new Nintendo Direct will be airing tomorrow to showcase upcoming Wii U and 3DS games.

Nintendo-Direct-Logo-621x350

Nintendo have announced that a Nintendo Direct will be airing tomorrow at 7 am PST. This Direct will be dedicated to upcoming games for both the Wii U and the 3DS. We don’t expect any new announcements for games and since Hideki Kamiya already mentioned there would be a Nintendo Direct before the release of The Wonderful 101, we expect this Direct to focus on that release.

Tune in tomorrow for all of our coverage of the Nintendo Direct.

Around the web
  • Shigeru Miyamoto

    I want to see Zelda Wiiu!

    • WolfgangAmadeusMozart

      I guess it’s up to you, Mr. Miyamoto, make it happen !

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      the tweet said it’s only for games coming out this year

      • Shigeru Miyamoto

        Awww, that kinda sucks. Whatever

        • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

          look at the other comment who replied to me :3

          • Shigeru Miyamoto

            Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyy!

      • Tonkka

        But! Nintendo has said that they will be releasing some other games they haven’t talked about yet before 2014.

        • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

          In that case, let the announcements commence!

        • Tim van Broekhoven

          Shiggy’s new IP!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Josiah Parsons

      Don’t we all.

    • InterTreble

      If you are ready, my body is the same!
      Cheers,

      Reggie

    • RockieOllie

      More Smash characters please :D

    • Magnus Eriksson

      Everyone does. But Art Acadamy tomorrow could be realistic. I really want colours in MiiVerse.

    • Guest

      Haven’t you already seen it Shiggy?

    • Steve

      I wanna see more SSB :)

    • Mr. J

      How bout another remake or directors cut……….. Nahhhhhh ZELDA!!!!!!!

  • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

    I hope they talk Pikmin DLC, 5 challenges per mode is NOT enough for the addicting gameplay Pikmin boasts.

  • http://www.youtube.com/azhood321 AZHood

    At best I’m hoping for some more firmware details, but realistically, I’m guessing it’s going to be a TW101 showcase and release dates for the rest of the games Nintendo has slated for this holiday season.

    • Rugmouse

      This is probably the most likely scenario, in my opinion. If you read the detail on the link, you’ll notice they “…will share new details on previously announced games for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS launching this year”

      At least the pipeline will get some more attention, and rightfully so. Wonderful 101 looks incredibly fun!

      Edit – I don’t mean to take away from the rest of the 2013 pipeline by only referencing Wonderful 101 (believe me, it’s not the only other game I’m getting this year), but I believe this game showcases some inventive uses of the touchpad, without detracting from the experience. People need to see this!

      • http://www.youtube.com/azhood321 AZHood

        TW101 is probably my most anticipated Wii U title this year, and the more I read about it on the blog Platinum Games has for it, the more excited I get. I’m hoping that there will be a special promotion for TW101, like the EU Pikmin/TW101 deal.

    • thedeciderU

      same, but i hope they reveal games coming before the end of the year. at least by september would be good if they want more word to spread. although, maybe they could advertise?

      • Ice Climbers

        Advertise? What is this “advertise” you speak of?

        • thedeciderU

          i know. weird, right? my hands led to the letters, and before i knew it, i’d created a new word :) i wonder what it means?

          • Ice Climbers

            Who knows?

  • Clel

    YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYY!

    • Tim van Broekhoven

      Jeuuuuuuuuuuujjjjjjjjjjjj

  • Stephen Davis

    Perhaps they will showcase some Monolith X gameplay and their new free to play Steel Diver! I certainly hope so :P

  • Steven_Segal

    Umm… I think this is gonna be something where they will announce some stuff since the Wii U is in a bit of trouble. MAYBE?

    • Zuxs13

      Thanks Captain Obvious, they usually announce stuff during an announcement.

      • Steven_Segal

        Alright, thank you but what did you mean with ”they usually announce stuff during an announcement.” because Nintendo Direct is not E3.

        • Zuxs13

          No but Nintendo Direct is Nintendo “Announcing” stuff about their IP’s. Therefore its obvious they are going to be doing some announcing.

          • Steven_Segal

            I meant announce new games!

          • Zuxs13

            They will be announcing new games, all the games in this will be new and coming out this year. That’s what the press release says.

      • https://twitter.com/Onyzora Ony

        ^this

  • Jake

    Screw nintendo. They can’t make it a more convient time for the ET zone ppl like me. I have soccer practice at that time. They always pick the time I am busy. Screw them for not putting it a better time. I am going to sell alllllll my wii u games and system. I will burn the 3ds cause nintendo sucks and should go bankrupt and go 3rd party cause they suck… Especially for time

    • jay

      NINTENDO DROP EVERYTHING LITTLE JAKE HAS SOCCER PRACTICE AT 7 TOMORROW!!!!

    • Jack5221

      Yeah… Screw Nintendo because they don’t plan their directs according to Jakes schedule…

    • Jake

      Wow, I was just joking and pretending to be a hater of Nintendo because they hate every little thing that Nintendo does

      • zerooooo

        It’s okay little jake you’ll see the nintendo direct eventually, no need for an explanation. Look on the bright side if you keep trying in practice you’ll probably make left bench.

      • The Clockwork Being

        I saw you were joking cause no one would go to that extent. Nice on Jake. I laugh at your joke

    • Deadpool U

      Yeah you’re totally right screw Nintendo for not knowing your schedule even though you can watch the the Direct at a different time on Youtube but no that’s great reason to hate and sell ever Nintendo game you have.

      • Jake

        Yeah sell all my games bc they put it at 10 am. u did not see the joke

    • sdmac200600

      …………..it’s 10 AM…that is not early…If you lived on the west coast, then you have a claim but since you live on the east coast like me, quit bitching….

    • Fred

      just watch it after

  • Zuxs13

    It says on the Nintendo Direct page this will be about previously announced games, so dont expect anything too new and exciting. But they could still throw a curve ball to help generate more buzz around them, like Zelda since they already talked about it and said they thought about showing it at E3.

    • Fred

      They also said games that are launching THIS YEAR and the new Zelda U is NOT launching this year

      • Zuxs13

        True they did say that it would be about games announced and launching this year, but it doesn’t mean they wont have a curve ball in there. They did already say they were going to show it this year..

        • Fred

          They said that? When? Where? I didn’t know they had said that

          • Zuxs13

            it was considered to be shown off at E3 this year. not sure if they will still show it off this year.

            http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2013/06/miyamoto_zelda_wii_u_was_considered_for_display_at_this_years_e3

          • Decker Shado

            If I were Nintendo…. I’d announce it a week before releasing WWHD, but only that it exists and that a short demo dungeon happens to be on the WWHD disk. *whistles*

            Okay, that probably won’t happen, but it certainly would move units.

          • Fred

            It does say they considered showing it at E3, but it doesn’t say we’ll see anything this year just they hope soon.

  • Jonny Smith

    WHERE’S THE MAJORA’S MASK 3D SPECULATION??? :)

    • Leo

      Majora’s Mask will be the ultimate cherry of the 3DS cake! ;)

  • jay

    Please Yarn Yoshi Gameplay.

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      I want news on that game!

    • Josiah Parsons

      Really, Yarn Yoshi is just a reskinned Kirby’s Epic Yarn. Don’t get me wrong! Kirby’s Epic Yarn was, well, epic. I just want to see something new.

      • Thomas Vienna

        Wait, how do you know? The only thing we’ve seen are a couple animations. We have no idea how different it will be.

        • Josiah Parsons

          Touche. It just looks like the same art style, the same gameplay (scroll to the right, eat stuff), and I think the same director. So right. we know very little, but what little we know looks very close to Kirby’s Epic Yarn.

  • Maxid765

    More info on Monolith X + Gameplay Please!!

    • Fred

      They said it’s about games launching THIS YEAR sorry I would also like more on that game, but we won’t get it tomorrow

  • Ice Climbers

    I don’t think this will be the Wonderful 101 focused Direct. I think we will get a Nintendo Direct Mini closer to the game’s launch in September. We’ll probably get a bunch of release dates of 3DS and Wii U games coming this year. Perhaps a new Pokemon reveal. Maybe a new fighter for Smash. We might get some updates about the Summer/Fall system update. Other than that, don’t expect much. They could surprise us with something new, like Zelda.

    • Fred

      But W101 launches this month in Europe

  • Zuxs13

    Catch an all-new Nintendo Direct right here on Wednesday, 8/7 at 7 a.m. PT.
    We will share new details on previously announced games for
    Wii U and Nintendo 3DS launching this year!

    http://www.nintendo.com/nintendo-direct/archive/08-07-2013/

    • Fred

      emphasis on PREVIOUSLY ANNOUNCED and LAUNCHING THIS YEAR

  • Kevin Wickham

    maybe we’ll hear more details on smash bros

  • Jack5221

    I dont think this direct will be the one Hideki Kamiya was talking about. The game wont be out for a little over a month, and didn’t he say that particular direct would only be about the game itself? Tomorrows direct is mentioning news about Wii U and 3DS games. We’ll just have to wait and see.

  • Magnus Eriksson

    I guess something like this

    3DS: You will get this shitload of great titles and we are developing even more games.

    Wii U: I want to apolologize. Sorry, sorry. Please understand.

    • Ice Climbers

      Pretty much haha. They’ll probably go on for 5 minutes about Pikmin 3.
      Also, am I the only one that read your comment in Iwata’s voice?

      • Marcel Kleine

        I think it will be like: Wii U will get a remake, another remake, directors cut, oh and don’t forget that other remake…

      • Stuart Thomas

        NO! that shit is hilarious, i did the same thing!

      • Tim van Broekhoven

        Yeah, especially that last sentence haha

    • LopsidedPasta

      It seems like the recent Nintendo Directs have had smaller and smaller amounts of new things in them

    • Ice Climbers

      Ok, now I’m almost positive they will talk about Pikmin 3. They will probably show us what that secret code does.

    • Tim van Broekhoven

      So true.

  • Archiq09

    Maybe new IP of Miyamoto fo wii u.

    • Ice Climbers

      Highly doubt it. That’s probably a E3 2014 game. Seeing as how that E3 will be completely about games and no new hardware (unless Microsoft surprises us with a handheld), Nintendo will use this game as their big surprise announcement.

      E3 2014 lineup: Monolith Soft’s X, Zelda U, SMT x FE, Smash Bros, new Miyamoto IP. Best lineup ever. They only need those five games.

      • Rugmouse

        You forgot about Mario Kart 8…2014 sounds expensive

        • Ice Climbers

          That’ll be out before E3 unless they delay it. Same with Bayonetta 2. Yarn Yoshi will probably get a trailer outside of the main event if it’s not already out.

          • Rugmouse

            Ah, my mistake – I didn’t see you were specifically talking about E3. As you were =D

        • Ice Climbers

          2014 does sound expensive. From the look of it, Nintendo is giving 3DS owners a chance to catch up. For Wii U owners, not so much.

      • Archiq09

        I’m agree.

  • Justin Carlson

    I love Nintendo Directs, but I fail to see how putting effort into these will help their Wii U install base.

    I think they need to focus more on reaching out to non Nintendo fans.

    • Luffy

      well all Nintendo Direct are closely monitor by the gaming media.
      Of course, that is not enough to get the attention of the mainstream.
      But the “harcore” will hear about any big nes on some website for sure.

    • Fred

      A lot of 3DS owners watch these maybe some of them will see it and decide that there’s now enough content to justify a Wii U purchase.

      • Justin Carlson

        Ah, I never thought of that. Thanks!

  • The Clockwork Being

    I was actually thinking it was time for a new direct soon

    Well since it is previously announced games.

    Wii U:

    X, Yarn Yoshi, SMT, games for the holidays, Zelda. They were all announced right.

  • Josh

    and a price drop

    • Fred

      Everytime you guys say that you set someone up for expectations that will be let down. They have said several time that there will NOT be a price drop.

      If you want a price drop to buy it right now at Best Buy and they’ll give you a $50 gift card. If you were going to buy a game anyway then it’s kind of like a price drop

      • Josh

        I think Target Canada and Nintendo of Europe are the ones setting us up for expectations. How can I get myself to buy a console here in the US when it is selling for half that amount in Canada.

  • Ice Climbers

    I personally hope they have a segment about the upcoming indie titles on Wii U and 3DS. I don’t think enough people realize just how many indie games are coming to both systems.

  • JeanPaul

    Im expecting alot of info on w101, some release dates, and nintendo buying atlus (especially considering the timing) Bidding should have ended like last week.

    • sup3rnoah

      I really hope we don’t spend more than 5 minutes combined on w101 and pikmin 3. Every Nintendo fan knows a lot about those games already.

      • Fred

        You and I are in separate boats, I hope they spend a decent amount of time on W101. I’m stoked for that game.

    • Fred

      Do you really think they bought Atlus?
      I don’t think I’ve ever played an Atlus game

  • Samuel Mungy

    Nintendo, so far ur making me regret my Wii U purchase. Please turn things around.

    • JBeauregard

      Lots of great games coming, and there are still some good ones out there. The trouble, though, is that when you get done with a great game in a specific genre there usually isn’t another one to take its spot.

      • Samuel Mungy

        The majority of the games I am looking forward to are in 2014. I am not interested in the PS4 or Xbox One. So I’ll stick to indie games on my PC and Wii U for now. But as for major games, Nintendo has been disappointing so far.

    • Luffy

      Pikmin 3! Such an amazing game! A true masterpiece :)

    • Fred

      Wait, which games do you own and which kinds of games do you typically enjoy. Everyone I know that owns a Wii U has had enough good content to stay happy so I’m curious about your situation.

  • Anger!

    Dang it im leaving for vaycay tommorow >:(

  • Starfoxguy

    I hope they announce some more SSB characters.

    • Nookling

      My guess is that if they show one it will be at the end of the direct. maybe when they are done talking about mario world peach will be confirmed.

      • Tim van Broekhoven

        No! At the end they’ll show the new Zelda just like they did with A Link Between Worlds :D

  • Wishsong214

    Expecting mostly new details on already known things. Probably will have a focus on Wonderful 101, unless they save that for early September. Bit more info on Donkey Kong, Mario World, perhaps. Kinda hoping that they use a Direct to show a new Smash Bros character, but not necessarily expecting it for this one. Also, won’t be surprised if they give an actual release date for Wii Fit U and Wii Party U.

    On the 3DS side of things, probably more info on Pokemon, possibly a reminder of the Fire Emblem/SMT deal that’s going on, reminder of Mario and Luigi: Dream Team, and maybe updates/release for Mario Party and/or Golf.

    • audi lover

      101 cums out on 26th aug in uk so would be the right time to talk more about it in this direct

    • Fred

      probably also release date for Wind Waker HD

  • Leo

    Finally! I need more information on Yarn Yoshi and Yoshi’s New Island!

    • Fred

      Yarn Yoshi looks cool, but I thought Kirby’s Epic yarn was boring.
      However, I know I’m in the minority with that sentiment as everyone else I know that played it loved it.

  • DingoWalley

    About time!

  • Truthteller

    THIS NINTENDO DIRECT WILL NOT SUCK LIKE ME, IT WILL BE AWESOME.
    NINTENDO DIRECT IS AWESOME, I SUCK.

  • Re4wii2008

    I don’t mean to annoy anybody but this Direct would completely beat last month’s Direct If they announced N64 Virtual Console Games! or N64 games with GBA and Gamecube Games on the Wii U VC but of course I really want to hear more about Upcoming Wii U Games! Thank’s Again Nintendo for the Surprise Release of Earthbound!

    • Fred

      I don’t expect any of that, but yes it would be AWESOME!

  • Brandon Gardner

    Hoping there are some huge surprises in store and not something we heard already before…. Let’s hope it focus more on the Wii U more than anything tomorrow… Windwaker official date will more than likely be released tomorrow

    • Fred

      Yea I’d hope Windwaker gets a date and an official price all I’ve seen is speculation on the price, but I’m really excited to the details on W101

  • SonicLucario

    WOOOOO! cant wait to see whats up with Nintendo :3

  • David Clarke

    Need to announce a price drop asap.. and my body is ready to see something… anything from the next zelda game :)

    • Fred

      How many times do they have to say they’re not cutting the price before people will believe them. You are just created an expectation that will only disappoint people when it doesn’t happen!

  • Leo

    Could this be a damage control move related to the recent retails price cuts?

  • springer85

    Nintendo trying to blame the Japan earthquake in 2011 on epic fail Wii U sales and not themselves for their pathetic zero marketing,way over priced and utter shite games goes to show you how pathetic they have become!!
    Blaming human nature and not themselves from their stupid mistakes is a total disgrace!!

    • Fred

      Their games are actually a lot of fun.

    • 00EpicGamer00

      Okay, just how many brain cells have you lost? You must not AT ALL know how to read something. If you actually read the article about the earthquake, you’d know that Nintendo DID NOT blame everything on the earthquake. All they said was the earthquake took part in slowing down the Wii U.
      But what can I say, retarded trolls like you, like to take things WAY out of proportion. And make up pathetic lies.

      …….Wow, you just went full retard.”blaming HUMAN NATURE.” Umm….The correct term is “natural disasters”. “Human nature,” is….Something that a human would regularly do. (A stupid example would be, “going to the bathroom.”)

  • $41809923

    good new but we would like to see battalion wars 3 for the wii u or new ip game

  • JBeauregard

    I think your definition of AAA games is a matter of your own opinion. Many critics would say that there have been several, but still not enough. If the games don’t appeal to you, then that’s cool. Not all of them appeal to me, either. When you tell people to “shut up” simply because they are stating that there are some good ones coming out, you just sound like a child. I suggest a different tactic from here on out so that you’re taken seriously at a later posting.

    • springer85

      LMFAO Several AAA games have been released for the Wii U?bwahahahahahahahahahaha
      Typical Ninty slurper in denial!!!

      • JBeauregard

        Springer? You’re reacting like a child again! lol

        • springer85

          Aww has your Wii U failed?
          BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

          • 00EpicGamer00

            Again with the spellings -_-

            Watch out guys, we got a 5 year old retard over here.

        • Luffy

          Don’t insult childs like that! :P

      • Mochlum

        I currently have Pikmin 3, New Super Mario Bros U, New Super Luigi U, Nintendo Land, and LEGO City: Undercover. I plan on getting Wonderful 101, Sonic Lost World, Scribblenauts Unmasked, Rayman Legends, Wind Waker HD, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Mario and Sonic 4, and Super Mario 3D World this year. Thank you very much :3

      • NkoSekirei

        hey springer how about u stfu u @$$ clown/troll

  • audi lover

    I want to know which final fantasy they are remaking as we heard nothing about it at e3

  • Baum 「ツリー」

    Well, I guess they’ll Focus on upcoming 3DS stuff, W101 and MAYBE we get a sneak Peak on Miyamoto’s IP or something like that. Also just as Magnus said tons o’ apologies :P

  • sup3rnoah

    I like the gamepad, it doesn’t feel like a tablet nor cheaply made.

  • Aleks

    The games ive LOVED have, most of the time, been Nintendo games. I dont want them to falter. That being said, no games lately has equaled crappy sales. (Heres the point, lol) I wouldnt be surprised if there was a BIG announcement tomm. They need it. Like pics of the next Metroid or next REAL Zelda or something. I’ll be kinda expecting a surprise tomm.

    • Fred

      Then you’re going to be let down. They specifically said it is about games coming this year.

      I’m excited to learn more about W101 looks like a fun game and I plan to buy it next month.

      • Ice Climbers

        They said the same thing about previous Directs and revealed new stuff. I’m pretty sure they said that about the Direct that they revealed A Link Between Worlds in.

  • sup3rnoah

    I really hope it’s not just release dates. Give us at least one surprise, Nintendo needs to stop playing it safe and make even loyal Nintendo fans like me shocked.

  • sup3rnoah

    Well for one, the iPad is you know, a tablet, and the gamepad isn’t meant to compete with that at all… It’s a controller, with a screen in the middle, happens to be touch screen, doesn’t make it a tablet. Does the iPad have A, B, X, Y, R, L, ZR, ZL, start, select, home, analog sticks, directional pad? No. The gamepad is a gaming controller, stop being such a stupid troll and arguing things that don’t even compare. everyone on this site knows you’re a horrible troll. go crawl in your cave and wank off with your own tears.

  • Aleksander

    your mother!

  • Carlos Uribe

    3DS: Pokemon, Zelda, mario&luigui, yoshi island, mario Golf.
    WiiU: Wonderful 101, pikmin 3, Zelda HD, Mario 3d World, MK8, Bayonetta, SSBWiiU…. nothing more…

    • sup3rnoah

      Says for games launching this year on the FB page. But I hope we see some smash bros and mario kart as well. fingers crossed!

  • Luffy

    Hope their is some announcement in it! I know I’ll be watching for sure! (where is my Star Tropics U…. :(((((
    hahaha joking, I dont expect much really :P

  • IBlock

    *twitches eye* must…. speculate…..

  • sup3rnoah

    Look you can quit calling me a “slurper” I have a ps3 as well. I’m going to be getting a ps4 at one point, but I’ll wait a year for more games to come out. Wii U’s graphics are great, how much more “real” graphics even matter? If I want to see something visually inspiring, i’ll, you know, step outside? And Blu-ray players aren’t even expensive anymore. Yes the game pad makes it more expensive but it’s still not that expensive especially compared to the xbox one. And i agree the wii u’s first year wasn’t good, but it will go exactly the same for the “next gen” consoles as well. Wii to Wii U was a big change, as for ps3 to ps4 and 360 to one, things hardly change. non loyalists won’t see the point of the new console.

    • starwars360

      Correct. :)

    • Zuxs13

      Just ignore him. He posts all over the place saying crap like this and its not just to Nintendo fans. He gets off from the responses he gets so stop giving them to him. He has no ration thought in his head what so ever.

      • sup3rnoah

        Sorry :/ I fed him too much.

  • Ducked

    How about Kingdom hearts 3 coming to the Wii U?

    • Michael Jurado

      and the 3ds don’t you dare forget about the 3ds!!!

      • Ducked

        Yeah I’d love to see it on the 3DS, but it would probably have less worlds.

      • lonewolf88

        that is probably impossible sadly i don’t think the 3ds is as strong as next gen systems in power.

        • THEMIGHTYDOOVDE

          God bless down scaling.

    • $63955329

      I love to see kingdom hearts 3 coming to Wii U but sadly it won’t it’ll be on the PS4 and Xbox one. it’s actually the first time that kingdom hearts 3 will be on an Xbox

      • Ducked

        It’s still possible for Wii U

        • $63955329

          yeah I think your right. I’d have wished it was on the PS3 and Xbox 360 but it was only because square were working on final fantasy xv. so it could be why it was on the PS4 and Xbox one

          • Ducked

            I think bringing it to the Xbox One makes no sense, Xbox fans don’t even know what Kingdom Hearts is yet.

          • $63955329

            yeah I would of thought that the people would think “what’s the point bringing it on Xbox one when they don’t even know what kingdom hearts is?” as always it should stay on a PlayStation like the PlayStation 4 that’s coming soon and I think the PlayStation 4 is coming November isn’t it?

  • kenny Johnson

    It’s ok, hun. You are loved. No need to try to get negative attention.

  • Michael Jurado

    I personally love the directs, they keep me informed and updated on status of games I want to know about. The same cannot be said about sony and microsoft

  • Pedro Natera

    SMH, a direct on games I know about sheesh nintendo, Talk about the fall update

    • Ice Climbers

      They might do that.

      • Pedro Natera

        They should but I doubt they will

  • starwars360

    Incorrect. :/

  • Ace J

    i guarantee you this direct will be about games that we already know about. just like the last 4 nintendo directs

  • kenny Johnson

    Oh sweetie. It’s ok. We like your toys too! They are also very nice. You see, pumpkin, it’s ok to like more than one toy!

  • Fred

    No they don’t ask as if it’s huge news, in fact they never give us more then a 24 hour notice. They straight out said that this one is just to give details on already announced games. That way if you don’t want to hear more details about games you are already aware of then you don’t have to waste your time and watch.

    I however, am stoked for Wonderful 101 and I will be watching anxiously!!!

  • Ice Climbers

    Nobody cares about the Blu ray. Everybody that wants a Blu Ray player already has one. “Better social media features”? You’re joking right? Miiverse is great as is. We just need the ability to post gameplay videos and Wii U will be even with PS4 on social media.

    • Zuxs13

      Ice, just leave him be, he is home getting off on this crap. Just look at his comment history, he does this stuff all over the net. Eventually they fade off and go away if you leave them be, trolls hate sunshine.

    • springer85

      MIIVERSE?LMFAO
      Also Sony has just reported that it is working on a bundle for $500 for a ps4 and a vita!!!!
      Talk about awesome value!!!!!!!

      • 00EpicGamer00

        $500 is a rip-off :P
        Especially for a crappy portable device.

      • NkoSekirei

        ignore him he becoming more retarded on every post he makes

  • Ernie Sanguyo

    Would be nice if they change the releases dates of that first party games upcoming :)

  • Fred

    I don’t think their handhelds would be as good if they didn’t have a home console. The home console gives them time to practice with newer more advanced tech and then they put it on their handheld and they’ve already mastered it. GBA was as powerful as a SNES DS was as powerful as a N64 3DS probably isn’t as powerful as a Gamecube, but it’s close. If they don’t use this time to learn HD on the Wii U how can you expect them to put out an HD handheld?

    • Ice Climbers

      3DS is more powerful than the Wii.

      • Fred

        You must be playing the S3DS cause neither of mine are.

        Nevermind the fact that it’s at a lower resolution

        • Ice Climbers

          That video is blowing a 3DS game up. Plus Youtube makes the quality go down. The game is also a port. Trust me, it looks 10 better when actually played on the 3DS.

          Also, Iwata said it was more powerful than the Wii a long time ago. Other developers have said its more powerful in the past. However, its very close.

          • http://taiyokun94.deviantart.com/ Keaton

            yes, kid icarus uprising, and Revelations looked on par if not better than the Wii graphics. a lot of 3ds games did, just those in particular caught my eye

          • Fred

            I never said it wasn’t close I said it’s not more powerful. The 3DS is running a lower resolution and a lower framerate. Don’t get me wrong I like both of my 3DS systems, but they aren’t more powerful then a Wii

  • kenny Johnson

    Pumpkin, If you want to spend your allowance or birthday money on something else… mama and dada will be OK with it. No one is mad at you. You can choose ANY toy you want in the store. If you don’t like the Wii U, you can get a different toy!

    • springer85

      LMFAO PS4 Xbone one and PC are not TOYS!!!!!They are home multi media devices!!
      Aww just as this fall your shite Gimmick U will be left for dead and will pale in comparison to the next gen!!
      The Wii U will look like the Wii did when compared to the ps3 and xbox 360!!!
      Wii U 3.6 Million in nearly 10 months
      Wii after 10 months 11.4 Million
      LMFAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • kenny Johnson

        Baby, it’s ok. I didn’t mean to call your big boy stuff toys! They’re very adult home multi media devices… just like you said.

  • Fred

    NOT IN PRICE!!!

  • Madmagican

    This is all I really expect from tommorrow:
    stuff on Wonderful 101 and Mario & Luigi: Dream Team
    stuff about how Nintendo’s happy that Pikmin 3′s out
    possibly stuff on other upcoming releases this year like DKTF and SM3DW and other 3DS titles like Pokemon X and Y
    hopefully (but not likely) a new character from smash bros and stuff from MK8

    • greengecko007

      I’d be surprised if they talk about Pokemon X and Y. Pokemon news comes out regularly from CoroCoro and the Pokemon Smash show in Japan. Talking about something that already gets a lot of coverage would be a waste of time.

      • Madmagican

        True, but Nintendo does like to reiterate a lot (look how much they’ve talked about Pikmin 3 and Animal Crossing: New Leaf)

      • Ice Climbers

        Especially when CoroCoro news is due really soon.

  • BIG Franky

    I’m guessing they also tighten up the actual release date schedule for the line-up this Fall (and hopefully next Spring)… I don’t think there are official dates for a few of the games, including Wind Waker, Super Mario 3D World, Wii Fit U, and Wii Party U, etc…

  • bizzy gie

    People should start clans on here. They can change their pictures to the same thing and add a clan tag to their username.

    Like Truthteller, Orto, Springer85 can be apart of clan Troll.

    Add ‘troll’ in brackets next your usernames and change your pictures to the troll face.

    • Jon

      aren’t they the same person?

  • Fred

    You do realize that Mario 3D World and Wonderful 101 are coming THIS year right. In fact W101 is next month.

  • Mochlum

    I’m praying for Yarn Yoshi and SSTxFE trailers, and maybe some new trailers for SM3DW, DKC:TF, and maybe even Smash Bros or Zelda U.

  • disqus_1X5DQH2Do3
  • Luna Moonfang

    All this just to announce Regginator in the next Smash? Geez!
    Oh yeah, and some news on the upcoming games would be appreciated :)

  • http://www.w-o-n.org/ GoldDreams

    W101 info direct please.

  • Mochlum

    Yeah, pretty much. Most sites have no evidence to support their claims and the best comebacks they can ever make are “You Nintendo slurpers!” I have a PS3 along my Wii U and 3DS, and plan on getting a PS4.

  • Thomas Vienna

    One thing for sure is: a lot of people are going to be disappointed.
    -
    I’m not just trying to be pessimistic, but this happens every single Nintendo Direct and E3. Nintendo says a couple of really cool things, but it isn’t want people expect, and they rage about how disappointing it was.

    • Ice Climbers

      I’m not expecting much at all. Just the release dates of the games coming this year and some new trailers. Oh and an official title reveal for the new Mario Party. That’s about it.

  • linkzero65

    PLZ SHOW ZELDA

    • linkzero65

      and i know thats imposible BUT im just dreaming

      • PS4/WiiU

        I’m thinking they will show it near the end of 2013 and will be released at the end of 2014 or beginning of 2015

  • Alexander Kleinwechter

    Im sensing zelda!

    • Leo

      Only Zelda Wind Waker HD. They made it clear that they will be talking about previous announced games.

  • Jon

    YAY!! D

  • Baum 「ツリー」

    he said it doesn’t FEEL cheaply made you stupid fuck…
    You do realize, that almost everything Nintendo-made thus far was made with cheaper material, but always was way more robust than anything Sony or Micro$oft did so far…You could literally throw a N64 Controller through your room without breaking it, but once you let a Xbox Controller fall from like half a meter it’s broken and you have to buy a new one. The same goes for everything Apple’s made…A friend of mine was accidently putting her ellbow on her IPhone and she had to buy a new one, because the thing’s Touchscreen couldn’t be used anymore…

    • NkoSekirei

      springer is alrdy a super retarded troll wats next omega retarded troll

  • Mr. J

    Just give us a hint on Myamotos new IP…………. Ppppllllllllllllllllzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  • springer85

    LMFAO it took Nintendo 10 extra months to get out Pikmin 3 that was supposed to be a launch title!!
    You seriously believe after 3 months from his announcement that Miyamoto will show off his new IP?
    God you Ninty slurpers are hillarious!!!
    LMFAO

    • Kevin Sepulveda

      Feed the TROLL!

  • IMMORTALREDGUARD

    We would like to announce that we have acquired Atlus and persona 5 will be coming to the Wii U in 2014

  • IMMORTALREDGUARD

    Nintendo has a lot of money so i don’t think they would be wiped off the planet anytime soon

    • NkoSekirei

      ignore springer85 hes a stupid troll nothing to see here

  • Ross Brocklesby

    Please give me hope that I did not put my faith (and £250) in Nintendo for nothing. I’ve played all the latest gen consoles and put my faith in Nintendo to bring back the fun in gaming. Don’t let me down please. Just announce that your at least making metroid, making a MH4U or announce something really special! New zelda, or a new IP!

  • Ross Brocklesby

    It’s gunna bum the shit out pikmin and w101 coz of the deal they doing. Carnt blame em but I think we will c less new info.

  • Alexander Kleinwechter

    When will it show in sweden?

    • crocodileman94

      4pm

  • Super Buu

    Some actual gameplay footage for Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem, that would be nice.

  • DragonSilths

    If theres some 3DS news it will be Pokemon X/Y, Zelda A Link Between Worlds, and Mario Party 3DS. Everything else will be Wii U. Wonderful 101, Zelda Windwaker HD, Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze, Super Mario 3D World.

  • Spike Ashford

    I personally hope to see some of those unannounced third party titles that I read about. Aside from that, I expect Wonderful 101, Pikmin 3 and Probably Pokemon X/Y.

  • Pinwheel

    Nintendo Direct 7/8/13

    Please Understand we have nothing to show you

    ~ Fin ~

  • Petri

    This direct might be mostly things we already know.

    Off topic, Nintendo hasn’t yet announced any participation on Tokyo Game Show, and on Gamescom only Nintendo of Europe seems to be present…
    So again, most probably about things we already know.

    Though little bit intrigued about this entry:
    This exhibitor shows the following products and commodity groups:
    COMPONENTS / ACCESSORIES
    Steering wheels / pedals

    Hope its an actual wheel and pedals for Wii U, and not plastic ring to mount your gamepad on.

  • http://taiyokun94.deviantart.com/ Keaton

    Hopefully they give us information on flipnote 3D

  • lonewolf88

    i bet there going to announce reggie as a new smash bros character show off yarn yoshi since we havent seen really anything on that game and maybe a zelda trailer miyamoto did say they had a trailer ready.

  • 00EpicGamer00

    Introducing U-3d! This Wii U adapter lets you play 3ds games on Wii U. But wait, there’s more! At Nintendo we listen to our fans so that is why we are unifying the Nintendo Network experience. Starting next week, all content purchased through the eshop will be tied to a user account rather than the system. Qualified games purchased through the virtual console service can be played both on Wii U and 3ds! At Nintendo we save the best news for last! Starting in september, for the first time ever, GameCube games will be downloadable through Wii U virtual console. Is your body ready?

    At least we “Ninety slupers” (the heck is that?) Actually know how to spell something, and know what grammar is :P

    Also, if you were telling the truth, you’d give sources, retard xD
    Also, if you “hate” Nintendo so much, why are you laughing like Bowser?

  • Abraham C

    Any chance to see any real footage from Fire Emblem x Shin Megami Tensei?

  • Christopher Westcott

    No new games in the announcement that IGN released. I bet we see more Zelda Wind Waker HD information.

  • kevin nun—-

    I’m no hater of Nintendo or Sony, but you are kind of right, for now.

  • Steve

    As usual, I will not be able to make it because something seems to always go on in my life every time there is a Nintendo Direct.

  • Mark

    Ah the Nintendo Directs……always an exciting time.

  • Mitch Hall

    Come on, guys. You really need to stop replying to springer85, it’s not helping at all.

    *Ahem* Anyway… honestly, I don’t expect much from this direct. I’d love to be proven wrong, but I expect that we’ll mostly just get more details on things that have already been announced. I predict that Pokemon X/Y, Mario 3D World, A Link Between Worlds, Pikmin 3, and Wind Waker HD will be the main focuses.

    By the way, does anyone know how long this Direct will be? Thirty minutes or so?

  • Mochlum

    I’m gonna check the Nintendo eShop right before it starts to see if they do another one of those “Available on the eShop right now” things like they did with Earthbound.

    Want to see a 3DS Metroid, like, a Super Metroid 3D or something.

    I don’t want to hear anything about a Metroid Wii U until 2014-2015, or that would mean that Retro Studio is NOT developping a Metroid x_x
    That would makes me so sad I would cry on my Wii U.

    It would be be if the article writer had actually detailed all the proper times for all the standard timezones, not just one.

    So what’s the showtime for BST/GMT?
