    • Deadpool U

      I am.

    • YogiGRB

      just did ;-P

  • Ian Settlemyer

    I hope they reveal a few new characters for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U.

    • Shigeru Miyamoto

      YES PLEASE!

      • Ian Settlemyer

        But I definitely don’t want Dr. Mario, Young Link, or Toon Link in the game. The only characters I want that didn’t make the cut in Brawl are Pichu and Roy.

        • Zackary Bruley

          Young Link was a nice compliment to Link in SSBM. I will welcome him.

        • Baum 「ツリー」

          Wow so you don’t like Link and Mario clones, but want other (bad) clones?

        • Shigeru Miyamoto

          Same, I hate clone characters, they should just be an outfit option.

        • Jack5221

          I really hope they get rid of Jigglypuff. Replace her with a character of Metroid. Any one of the hunters from the DS game would be amazing!

          • Clel

            Jigglypuff was so OP in Brawl.

  • Jack5221

    I hope they mention something about the upcoming Yarn Yoshi. Haven’t heard anything about that game since Feb :o The Direct is supposed to be about “Previously announced Wii U / 3DS games” and technically Yarn Yoshi qualifies as previously announced :D

    • Mario

      Good to see my buddy gettin’ some love.

      • CMB

        OMG ITS MARIO! Any news on your new game?

        • Mario

          Which one? Super Mario Sunshine 2 or Super Mario 3D World?

          • CMB

            I didn’t know they were making sunshine 2…

          • Mario

            OOPS!! I wasn’t supposed to spoil it! Miyamoto won’t be happy about this… :s

          • Shigeru Miyamoto

            Now Mario, what did I say about spilling the beans?

            (This is just a joke don’t get butthurt)

          • Satoru Iwata

            He better not spill the coins. Those cost us a great deal of money.

          • DragonSilths

            Sunshine was terrible.

    I hope they announce a price cut and an ambassador program for the Wii U. Would love me some free gamecube games.

  • CMB

    only 18 more minutes cannot wait!

  • CMB

    Only 15 more minutes

  • SonicLucario

    I just hope they announce more new games

    • Madmagican

      I do too but the official site states that they’re only focusing on previously announced games that are coming out this year

      • SonicLucario

        true, I should have said “I hope they announce more information on the games they already announced”

  • ezquimacore

    • Baum 「ツリー」

      this always creeps me out xDD

    • Tecpedz94

      That’s messed up lmao scares the sh*t out of me haha

    • uPadWatcher

      Time to play the game!!!!

  • http://Johnaguilera.prosite.com/ John Aguilera

    I had a dream of Pikmin last night after playing it all day yesterday. It was pretty sweet. I woke up wanting to play some more…but I had to go to work. -_-

  • CMB

    My body is ready for the announcement of Reggie being in smash bros

  • Concise

    It’s interesting (at this point) seeing how rapidly the number of viewers are climbing. I would love to see some more information about ‘X’ in this announcement.

    I also saw some previous comments about it being focused solely on ‘previously announced games.’ Could this be alluding to some of the more obscure titles mentioned nearer the Wii U’s launch?

  • YogiGRB

    can’t wait ……

  • That_one_guy99

    It’s like Christmas. :D

  • therealruben1

    hope for some new info for mario kart 8

  • Zombie Boy

    One minute to go…

  • Madmagican

    Aaaaand here we go

    20 seconds

  • SonicLucario

    Its here!!!!

    LOL! Oobi ay soft

    • ezquimacore

      hahaha

  • SonicLucario

    Rayman for Smash Bros

  • Weeping angels

    Theory: the deadly six could represent the seven deadly sins. With the seventh person being the final boss.

    • greengecko007

      And if you buy both the Wii U and 3DS version of the game, you will receive a code to unlock a PC version for free, thus resulting in 6-6-6, and an optional final boss battle with Satan. Also, 6/2 (2 versions of the game) = 3. Half Life 3 confirmed too!

  • Ernie Sanguyo

    what august 29 for rayman.. that’s awesome :)

    • Madmagican

      ….if you’re in Europe

      • SonicLucario

        word…

  • http://Johnaguilera.prosite.com/ John Aguilera

    Give me some Yarn Yoshi!

  • Clel

    I can’t wait to see what people do with art academy. Get ready for some wicked Miiverse drawings!

    • Magnus Eriksson

      That was the only really awesome thing for WiiU this Direct. I love to draw and have waited for this since I bought my WiiU before christmas.

    • greengecko007

      The coolest thing in the entire direct in my opinion, and what they spent the least amount of time on. C’mon Nintendo.

  • Madmagican

    Luigi’s returning to smash
    …well I saw that coming

  • That_one_guy99

    Ustream go home. Your drunk

  • Deadpool U

    Yes Super Mario Bros. 3 on VC! Yes!

    • Clel

      Wait what? He’s talking about Miiverse on my stream.

  • greengecko007

    Luigi in Super Smash Bros. 4 confirmed! Shocker!

    Disappointing direct. Nothing new, so what was even the point?

    A Link between worlds looks interesting, but the heavy reliance on old the old overworld and little new content shown makes me kind of skeptical. It’s also laughable that Iwata thinks HD graphics makes Wind Waker HD feel like a completely new game.

    • TheLazyMudkip

      for the younger people it will be, cause they were too young to play when it was released

      • Gotallofthem

        Agreed

      • Graeme Lynch

        So for the people who have played it? Just pretend? I’m becoming very tired of Nintendo. I don’t want to have a Wii repeat and forget I own a Wii U.

        • TheLazyMudkip

          First off I haven’t played it in along time so I’m going to get it, second the kids that were 2-5 years old couldn’t play it, and third I’ve been supporting nintendo all my life and I’m not stopping anytime soon

          • Graeme Lynch

            Yes and sadly it is the narrow minded Nintendo fans like yourself that feeds into the delusion that Nintendo don’t need to do anything more than they are already doing. Good job!

          • TheLazyMudkip

            Narrow minded really? I said I support nintendo not exclusive to nintendo I own a 360 ps3 and wii u, so please read before you type

          • Graeme Lynch

            Let’s not get theatrical here Mudkip.

    • Mitch Hall

      Wind Waker won’t feel COMPLETELY new, but it certainly does look pretty. They seem to have remade it from the ground up instead of just lazily upscaling the original.

  • ezquimacore

    well…boring :(

  • Weeping angels

    When he said two legend of zelda games coming out, I thought he meant link between worlds and the wii u zelda. :(

  • Concise

    They just packed the most exciting announcements for games into the last 30 seconds

  • Vextrum

    Ugh. When Iwata said he was going to be talking about some previously discussed games, and a few new things, I didn’t think he meant EVERY GAME everyone already knew about, and Luigi…..in Smash Bros……..Um.

    • SonicLucario

      yes this was pretty disappointing

    • YogiGRB

      what about the many indigames they just showed? :D

  • Baum 「ツリー」

    EUROPE GETS THE LAYTON x ACE ATTORNEY CROSSOVER!!
    MAAAAAN!! :D I’ve got goosebumps all over :3

  • Magnus Eriksson

    That kind of sucked… again! No love for Wii U.

    • Magnus Eriksson

      edit: ArtAcademy looks really cool though. But Iwata almost gave me a heart attack when he talked about two Zelda games. That was just evil…

    • YogiGRB

      what about the indigames man, the indi guys rock

      • Magnus Eriksson

        Yeah, saw that part later. It looked very nice actually. I want maybe 75% of the games I saw there. Hope they will bring inspiration to Nintendo now, always good with fresh stuff outside the box.

    • Baum 「ツリー」

      yeah there were tons of Wii U games (although it were Indie games) in Europe’s Direct….

  • Joey Perez

    they mentioned nothing at all.. just that you can be luigi in ssb u and that u can download an animal crossing wara wara plaza.. sonic lost worlds is coming no news about wii u at all its sad :( im kinda hurt .
    they did mention that friday will be a nintendo direct for the wonderful 101…
    hopefully on the direct on friday they add more than just wonderful 101 stuff..

  • CMB

    I feel a bit dissapointed…, but the phoenix wright thing was awesome!

  • Ernie Sanguyo

    atleast we know that art academy coming out in few days..I’ve been waiting for this forever.

  • Zackary Bruley

    Yeah! Nothing new~

  • SonicLucario

    nothing to see here people move along, except for the very end

    • SonicLucario

      AND MANY INDIE GAMES

    • Clel

      I watched the very end… I don’t see what you’re talking about.

      • SonicLucario

        The X over with Professor Layton

        • Clel

          If I go to the end I see them talking about Animal Crossing and the W101 direct

          • SonicLucario

            oh ok you got me sorry for miss leading you >.<

          • Clel

            Oh I found it… aaand it’s a 3DS game. Of course.

  • Mochlum

    …well… that Direct was terrible.

  • Leo

    No Yarn Yoshi and no Yoshi’s New Island? Why? WHY???????

  • Clel

    The Direct is up on YouTube now, so if you missed several sections of it, you can go see them. Ustream flipped out on me, so I’m doing that right now.

  • Elitepwnsface

    Ubi I soft lol

    • YogiGRB

      actually very correct, …… U B I Soft is the name but many just say Ubi for short ;P

  • Stephen Davis

    NO new gameplay, NO new games, and NO mention of Zelda WIIU? Nintendo are you even listening??

    • Gabe Hoffman

      Hello they said this direct would be dedicated to mainly already announced games. Didn’t you get the memo

    • Ice Climbers

      They can’t just announce new games all the time. Zelda U won’t be announced until after Wind Waker HD is out, that was made CRYSTAL CLEAR a while ago. Also, they DID show new gameplay of A Link Between Worlds.

    • Jon

      why would they mention Zelda U before Win Waker U is released? We know Zelda U is in development anyway.

  • Lord Carlisle

    Disappointed that Luigi appears to have the same moveset. I wanted his moves to be based around the Poltergust 5000.

  • Stephen Davis

    I sick of hearing Iwata, he is not exciting to listen to. WTF is going on at Nintendo?? Seriously is corporate management just asleep over there? I would be too if I had to listen to Iwata. Get someone in there to do directs with some personality. Jeez. That presentation serioulsy looked like a 12year old made it, NOT a company that has been in bussiness for over 40 years…This is embarassing

    • 00EpicGamer00

      I liked it when Reggie did the directs…..I hope they switch Iwata out and put in Reggie soon.

  • springer85

    LMFAO!!!!ANOTHER PATHETIC LAME direct that gave us nothing new and just bragged about the games we already know are coming!!!
    Iwata is a disgrace and is ruining Nintendo!!!
    NOBODY cares for this over the top boring crap directs that just tell us the same thing as the previous directs!!
    It is hillarious as to what Nintendo have been reduced to…..giving embarassing directs to try and shift consoles!!!
    The Wii U is dead and come xmas time it will get inhilated by the next gen!!

    • Smartass2

      Get a life and get off this site if you don’t like Nintendo.

      • Jon

        this was said it was going to be dedicated to games we already know about….

  • springer85

    No Zelda,No yarn Yoshi, No mention of Miyamoto new IP he is working on….NOTHING!!
    Seriously Nintendo what are the point of these embarassing directs?
    They will NOT help sell units that you desperatley need to do!!
    The last 4 directs have been IDENTICAL!!!
    It is laughable to hear these Ninty slurpers trying to defend them, when for a whole year the Wii U has been a complete joke to the gaming world!!
    Ninendo should fire Iwata and scrap the Wii U as this is just beyond pathetic!!

    • Gabe Hoffman

      They clearly said this Direct would be dedicated to already announced games

      • springer85

        LMFAO!!!!Yeah the same as the PREVIOUS 4 DIRECTS!!!
        Look at you trying to defend Ninty,wake up you have been taken for a mug!!!
        $350 and only 1 AAA game in 10 months released 2 weeks ago is PATHETIC!!!

        • Jon

          the last 4? well, there was only one after E3 since this and at the E3, they announced new games….. lol so the last 4? not even close. We know Zelda U is coming and it wouldn’t make much sense to announce it before Wind Waker is released and We have seen Yoshi Yarn and we know it is also being released sometime next year also, So it would make sense to announce and show the stuff that is coming next year at a later date instead of show something that is a year or bit more later.

    • Leo

      Are you interested in Yarn Yoshi? Color me surprised!

    • Stephen Davis

      I agree completely! Nintendo needs to clean house. Like Sessler said, not that they did a bad job BUT because the market has changed. And Iwata and Reggie seem content on doing things the same way and yet expecting different results. This happened with the 3DS and they made same mistake with WIIU. So really that is definition of insanity, they keep making same mistakes and then adding new ones on top of it and expecting different results. Planning to launch console and no games is un-excusable

  • springer85

    Xbox One and Ps4 BOTH have 4 AAA games at launch with heaps more coming in the first year!!!
    The Wii U is so going to be inhilated!!!
    LMFAO

    • Nintendofan

      Pikmin 3 is inhilating any of your so beloved X1 and PS4 launchtitles… LMFAO

      • springer85

        LMFAO PIkmin 3 entered the Uk charts at number 2 then this week dropped to number 15!!!
        Pikmin 3 has not even sold 500k worldwide!!!
        LMFAO

        • Jon

          did you expect it to sell 300k copies in less than a week?

    • http://www.mpt-online.eu/ Sylux

      LFMAO Zorbo85 you again waste our time and even with the 15th name you still make the same retard mistake telling who you are by just posting LFMAO, you only forgot your Nintendo Slurpers quote O well. I keep laughing on every post you make with every “new” name you pick.

  • Ice Climbers

    Glad to see Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney being localized. Oh and Luigi confirmed for Smash Bros. I want A Link Between Worlds and Sonic Lost World (both versions).

  • Tom Hoskins

    Well, I’m getting used to Nintendo Directs disappointing me with the WiiU news….
    That said, I’m really really getting an urge to buy a 3DS!

    So many games on that I want to play already, and now many more. It does annoy me that the professor layton games don’t have DS ports!

    • Ice Climbers

      Get one! You’ve got a lot of catching up to do! I’ve had one since launch, and I am behind in games. I still don’t have Fire Emblem, SMT4, or Project X Zone.

      • Tom Hoskins

        I will, but money has to be spent as wisely as possible – with gta v, ac4, batman, watchdogs, rayman legends, donkey kong all coming out in the next 3 months spending an extra £150 to then be able to buy more games is hard to justify…

  • Nintendofan

    … to all the disapointed fans… you’re not real nintendofans, but trolls. Imo, we should buy at least half of the announced games to help nintendo, otherwise you’re a nobody. Nuf said

    • Guest

      suck my chode!

      • Nintendofan

        that’s what your momma said yesterday

    • greengecko007

      Buying into a company in hopes that they will eventually wow us like they used to? We’re customers, not investors…

      • Nintendofan

        I bought 4 copies of Pikmin 3 just to be on the safe side. I believe you should thank me, cuz without ppl like me there will be no Nintendo in the future. If I ever meet you in person i will punish you with a thousand Pikmens in the face.

        • 00EpicGamer00

          You do realize that most people don’t have the money to be purchasing the same $60 game four times, right? Like, for instance. I usually only get games for my birthday or Christmas, BECAUSE of how expensive they are. My birthday is on the 27th of August, so that’s when I’m going to get Pikmin 3, Mario & Luigi Dream Team, and…whatever other game that catches my eye. But, that doesn’t mean I ONLY get games on those two days. It just depends.

          And, just because someone doesn’t go and buy the game right away, doesn’t mean they’ll never get the game. If they like the game, then they will get it in time. Like with me.The only game I ever went out and got right when it released was paper Mario sticker star….and that was a terrible decision….since the game is not at all that good. And so, that expierence showed me, to not get games right away.

          Also, I HIGHLY doubt you went out and purchased four copies of Pikmin 3. I’m not sure how much Pikmin 3 is, but I’m guessing it’s about $60. So, you’re telling me that you went out and spent about $240 (plus tax) just because you were worried that there would be no more Nintendo in the future? Real smart -_-

          I love Nintendo too, but that doesn’t mean I want to end up poor. I get games when the time is right for me.

    • Stephen Davis

      This is the kind of ignorance I am talking about

      • Nintendofan

        yeah, tell me about it… disappointed fans are so ignorant, aargh, makes me so angry

  • Smartass2

    Virtual Boy. Really?

  • Jon

    the virtual boy didn’t even sell 800,000 copies…..

  • Yong Woo Kim

    Gracias!

  • blindtiger

    soo many games. i wish i had saved some money!

  • david daniel wharton camacho

    OMG CAN I FUCKING KISS THE NOA GUY?!!??! PROFESSOR LAYTON VS ACE ATTORNEY IS ACTUALLY COMING TO NOA OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG ORGASM!!!!!

  • http://www.mpt-online.eu/ Sylux

    I didn’t expect a lot of new stuff or news as it was announced before that it won’t have that, yet some interesting surprises also. But seeing they said they would only talk about games to be released this year (with exception of dr. Layton vs Phoenix Wright) I’ll take it that both Bravely by Default and Dragon Quest VII won’t be released in the west in 2013 but more likely 2014 (3DS).

    Not much news related to the WiiU either, atleast stuff we didn’t know allready. With a very few exceptions at that. I think the W101 Direct on Friday will be the best Direct since the E3 direct. Nothing really worthwhile to mention in this Direct (new stuff that is offcourse, the Mario and Luigi suits will be fun for Rayman, but that really is it) Maybe they should have called it a 3DS Direct with a small tip of WiiU taste :) Atleast 3DS looks still very promising this year, and I hope next year will be such a great and promising year for WiiU as 2013 has been for 3DS so far.

  • Tecpedz94

    NINTENDO WHY NOT MAKE MII PLAZA OR MIIVERSE ON 3DS FOR ANIMAL CROSSING SINCE THAT’S WHERE IT BELONGS!!!! Regardless that plaza looks nice :P

  • companyoflosers

    as long as they make sonic actually a bit skill based this time around. im tired of the bumpers and environment doing all the work.

  • Saul Strange

    Not bad, nice to see more of Sonic and Rayman, especially with release dates.

    I’d still really like to see eShop cross compatibility with regards to the Virtual Console wherever possible. All these cool VC games keep getting announced, but only for 3DS :-(

    At least Super Mario Bros. 3 is coming to Wii U.

  • SkyStormXD

    vvvvv

  • SkyStormXD

    vine

  • Mario

    That was unbelievably awesome!!!

  • Stephen Davis

    Hey you the boss here? Okay. Great yea do you know the title GTAV? Well the reason I am typing this is don’t worry I am not here to sell you anything. I know I prolly do sound the part, thats what alot of others thought anyway. My name is Stephen and I have a console you may have heard of. The WIIU, yea I am sure you’ve heard of it. Well as I was saying the reason I am typing this is I am selecting a few specific websites that generate the most traffic to help create awareness for a title that many (like yourself) would like to playing on their WIIU. Now what I asked a few others to do is just to click on this link http://www.change.org/petitions/grand-theft-auto-v-for-wii-u But the reason I am doing this, is because we find some may not be aware of efforts like this that are underway. Now if you want to help us out great, if not thats fine. Now I know you all have busy schedules and so may be pressed for time, but alot of those who have helped us have found a few seconds doesn’t keep them from enjoying the rest of their day. So what I do is find a few websites that generate traffic due to the WIIU to sign, because that is how we increase the likelihood by the amount of signatures present. Because you may or may not know this but Rockstar has employees that look where there might be interests for their titles. So if you want GTAV you have to do something, (you and I know you don’t get something for nothing right?) So there is 3 things I ask. First you have to own a WIIU. Which you do right? K. Second we need you to tell others after you have signed, because others may not be aware of it. Third is well obviously we don’t know what your thinking, so we ask you share your thoughts of why you want to see GTAV on WIIU. Also we want you to visualize what it would be to experience GTAV on your WIIU and then share that with others, like you may or may not do already

  • Nintendofan

    … whatever… I don’t have to proof myself to you, cuz i really don’t care about your opinion, child.

  • Leo
  • Stephen Davis

    Best news have heard thus far. (thankyou Leo for pointing this out) They should put announcements like this in the direct if they can’t (or won’t) show gameplay of highly anticipated upcoming games. For those who don’t know “this will be the new workplace for all creators of the company who have had enough trouble with the transition to HD and programmable shaders, increased staff help soften the burden of this work” :) They are planning for an attack and NOW they will have the manpower to put it into action
