      • Huzaifa

        They just said May not 18th… im pretty sure

        • Green

          Yep my imagination got the better of me lol, but I was close May 30th is the actual date ^^.

  • Green

    I’m guessing they’ll just tell us about games we know about like DK/mariokart for the U, and then 3ds they’ll tell us about yoshi’s island and kirby.

      • DragonSilths

        There are 2 coming before E3…DKC:TF and MK8… So long development times I guess. E3 is the final chance.

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      My thoughts exactly.

    • Huzaifa

      Exactally

      • Sorcha

        Exactally? What are you from Italy?

        • DarkYoshi

          What, do you think you’re the grammar police? Please, don’t bother with simple grammar mistakes.

    • Guest

      Maybe they want to get the least interesting things out of the way first.

      • WiiUPS4

        Yeah well that didn’t work out did it

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          Well look at the bright side. They’ll help boost PS4 sales.

    • Magnus Eriksson

      Yeah, fuck this. Im buyin a 3DS tomorrow morning. Im tired of being angry.

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        Good thing I have a 3DS. At least Nintendo has something good going on. Wii U is a graveyard.

      • Ducked

        Don’t forget to add a PS4 on top of that ;D

        • Magnus Eriksson

          Ill wait two years for that

      • juancamiloarq

        Haha, that’s the way. I just did it and I’m loving it.
        The last And really good thing that has happened on Wii U was Link to the Past. I was expecting a lot more. Well, what the f.

  • starwars360

    Don’t ruin Nintendo!!! I knew Punch-Out! Character join the battle in SSB 4 and new Wii U’s eShop game coming this Spring. But I cannot wait for major game announce!!! :P
    I am so pleased Punch-Out! joins SSB 4. He is great.

    • Alexander Kleinwechter

      there will no be a major game announcement

      • starwars360

        Oh I see ok. I just cannot wait Mario Kart 8, Super Smash Bros. 4, DKC: Tropical Freeze, Bayonetta 2 and X!!!! At least they are big 5 Wii U games in this year. :D

        • Alexander Kleinwechter

          yeah, im excited too :)

  • Huzaifa

    Woo My sister is making me Ramen

  • Random12multi

    MONSTER HUNTER 4 ULTIMATE

  • ScrewAttack

    Glad little Mac’s in SB, look forward to trying him out.

  • Black leg sanji

    Omg omg omg!!! 3ds 3ds…sigh y nintendo

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      Bored so far.

      • Black leg sanji

        Its annoying now

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          No doubt.

          • WiiUPS4

            Nintendo is craping on us..

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I’m sure not taking their sh*t.

  • Huzaifa

    2015 ugh

  • Nintengoth

    Sick of 3DS games I want Wii U GAMES!!!

    • WiiUPS4

      Agreed!

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      Still in early development I bet while they spend 90% of their time on 3DS games.

      • WiiUPS4

        Im thinking of dumping wii u altogether at this point

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          I’m getting buyer’s remorse.

          • WiiUPS4

            I agree

          • jrob23

            as if you own it lol

        • Keyser

          E3 is their last chance, and even that is cutting them way too much slack

        • Ducked

          Your still get Mario Kart 8, Bayonetta 2, Super smash Bros Wii U, and X. But I can’t blame you..

      • Ducked

        3DS is what’s making the money so their pumping it steroids. While Wii U needs it the most.

        • RichM

          Yes they are pumping it with steroids…but the freaking Wii U needs a difibulator!!!!!! Can someone find a gif of that please?

    • darkcreap

      Agreed. I couldn’t believe it.

    • RichM

      I think the consensus is that we are all fed up with Nintendo. I swear all the media bloggers will be posting about how much we Nintendo fans are literally fed-up with Nintendo. Not one mention about new game. I’m sick of the Smash Brothers news. We get it…there will be 100 playable characters. The best thing about this direct was the footage of X. I could care less about 3DS. I’ve got total buyers remorse.

      This is how it is with Nintendo. They think everything is fine and that they can keep going down this stupid path. The Wii U has nothing! I’m excited Metroid Fusion is coming, but why not win back the hearts of your faithful customers. I have two words to describe this Nintendo Direct: EPIC FAIL!!!!!

      • DragonSilths

        100 Playable characters in Smash? lol no. More like 40.

        • juancamiloarq

          SARCASM

          • DragonSilths

            Invalid on the internet.

      • AkaLink77

        I never thought id say this but they need to press “Pause” on the 3DS and press “Start” on the WiiU.
        (and don’t talk trash about Smash cuz even though we are getting good news about it, there’s no doubt that we want to be hyped for it.)

      • RichM

        I don’t want everyone to think I hate Nintendo. It’s actually a love/hate relationship that most of us have. I lived through the N64/Gamecube decade of let downs and delayed games. I am use to seeing Nintendo completely ignore their fans. Even during the golden years of the Wii, they still ignored us. I know we’re not a multi-billion dollar company and they seem to know how to make games, but we are the consumers and you can only ignore us for so long. At one point or another it’s going to hit your bottom line in a big way. I think we are finally seeing that this fiscal year. Which brings me to yesterday’s “direct”. Wii U owners are screaming for games and are willing to throw their money at the feet of Nintendo, yet they give us nothing. Indie games and old games only go so far. And you’re not even giving us all the old games we want. The whole Wii emulation and the separation of the eShop and Virtual Console is a nightmare. How can you think people are happy with that. Americans are an immediate gratification society. We want what we want and we want nit now….not TBD 2014. Perhaps your Korean and Japanese fans have the patiennts of a Saint, but we here in the US do not. And, if you want to be a major player in this industry, you need to win the US. Glad the 3DS is doing well and that you can develope the hell out of it, but you do have a home console you are neglecting.

        • CharlesAnderson

          For Christ’s sake they do a Direct every month or two at this point. There’s going to be more and this is what they had for you this week. Patience.

    • Sorcha

      They can’t because they’re still making money on 3DS which also supports the Wii U financial.

    • Green

      Yeah every Direct its like We got like 5 new 3ds games coming up this week, and I’m like WOAH thats awesome, and then they go to the Wii U, and are like we have 5 games coming up through out the year!

      • RichM

        …And it’s the same 5 games they’ve been showing us for the last year. That’s why it’s so sad!.
        DK: TF
        X
        Bayonetta 2
        Smash Brothers
        MK8
        All these games look so damn polished I’m pretty sure they could release them today! Hell, they looked polished a year ago!

      • CharlesAnderson

        They take longer and more resources to make. They also make less money than 3DS at this point so…

    • The Clockwork Being

      From now on expectations low for everything Nintendo news related!

  • Nathan C.

    WHERE…IS…MARIO KART?!?

  • Leo

    Enough with 3DS already Nintendo!!!

  • Random12multi

    How the direct is going so far

    • Black leg sanji

      Its basically a 3ds direct

    • WiiUPS4

      Crap!

    • Alexander Kleinwechter

      People are just inpatient, wii u games will come

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        Yes….in 2015.

        • Alexander Kleinwechter

          I mean, wii u games will come in the direct a bit later,

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Perhaps. Seeing as it’s past 25 minutes, gonna take a guess that there’s not a lot to talk about.

  • Magnus Eriksson

    Lol, I got downvoted 25 times on this page for wanting Little Mac in Smash last year :D

    edit: Im getting a 3DS tomorrow morning btw.

    • WiiUPS4

      Congrats man..You got it right but where are the Wii U games!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      Lol. Seriously?

    • Ducked

      Selling your Wii U eh?

  • Yousif Alromaithi

    why no news on Wii U

    • WiiUPS4

      Looking like we are not getting any Wii U games

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        Seems like it so far.

      • Random12multi

        Im a wait… then complain lol

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          I’ll just complain in spite.

        • WiiUPS4

          Looks like we are getting GBA games at last

      • Yousif Alromaithi

        But little Mac was the best announcement so far

  • Random12multi

    How the direct is. OMGOHHHhhhhh it’s just 3ds games….

    • Gabe Hoffman

      Its not over yet be paitient

      • Random12multi

  • Kameron Grayson

    Nintendo, STOP WITH THE 3DS NEWS

  • NintendoFan

  • ScrewAttack

    I like how 3DS gets an FPS…..looks interesting buuuuuuut…. FUCKING WII U ALREADY.

    • Kameron Grayson

      YES!

  • Black leg sanji

  • Alexander Kleinwechter

    People jeesh, patient, They will show off mario kart 8 in this direct, dont worry

    • Michael DeVore

      Probably at the end unless they have a surprise video.

    • Leo

      I’ve already seen mario kart, i want new annoncements for the WiiU now!!!!

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        IKR?

  • GermGerm

    The number of viewers is dropping real fast Nintendo….

    • NintendoFan

      There’s 53k watchers and climbing right now on the youtube stream

      • GermGerm

        Really? Mine said 57,000 and now it says 18,000

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          I feel their pain.

          • GermGerm

            Same. Soooooooooooo ready for Nintendo to give us something real.

  • Random12multi

    WIIU FINALLY

  • Kameron Grayson

  • Random12multi

    • Kameron Grayson

      Too much DK

  • Daniel Gonzalez

    Yay…..new DKC:TF trailer….next.

    • Kameron Grayson

      Agreed

    • Yousif Alromaithi

      NES Remix lol.

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        • RichM

          Me either!

  • Nathan C.

    • Nathan C.

  • Alexander Kleinwechter

    donkey kong looks awsome though, to be honest

  • Random12multi

    I understand why there pushing donkey kong so much… but still… really nintendo

  • Kameron Grayson

    I shouldn’t have let my hopes up…

  • Kameron Grayson

    NES Remix
    Ugg

    • Kameron Grayson

      It’s ok, but SERIOUSLY!

    • Alexander Kleinwechter

      i gotta agree, im getting a bit worried, its not much time left

    • Leo

      WTF Nintendo lol

  • Random12multi

    -_-

  • Random12multi
  • Black leg sanji

    -_- im sure everyones face is like this now

    • Tecpedz94

      What do u want them to announce for the wiiu seriously as much as i love the wiiu there isn’t any support so far so all u can expect is the same games we already know are coming just with new trailers and game plays so there isnt any point complaining..

  • NintendoFan

    NES Remix 2

    • Kameron Grayson

      Hell no

  • Nathan C.

    THIS is way NIntendo needs to fire its entire marketing team. They just don’t know…

  • Simon Stevens

    I want a word with you Iwata, what the fuck is this shit?

    • RichM

      I couldn’t agree more. Absolutely nothing. We were supposed to have a Nintendo Direct every month. We wait a month in a half, have to listen to blogger after blogger Sh*t on the Wii U and it’s poor sales and now we get a Nintendo Direct that does nothing to surpress our concerns. Not one new game announced. NOT ONE!

      • DragonSilths

        Not 1 new game? Steel Diver Sub Wars…not a big game or anything but a new game. Also Rusty Baseball something…

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          Nothing special about those two.

          • DragonSilths

            Doesn’t matter. I was pointing out he said not 1 new game, when there were new games. Yes they were pointless crap nobody cares about, but the fact is new games WERE shown. Its like when people say Wii U has no games….yes it does. It has a lot. Just not a lot that people want.

    • Ducked

      It’s like they’re okay if no one buys a Wii U and discontinue it, so their just make money off of 3DS and work on the next home console.

      I’m really looking forward to Mario Kart 8, but I’m not keeping a Wii U just for MK8 and 3D World. So Nintendo better step it up, or I’ll sell it and buy a PS4 sooner

      • ScrewAttack

        Problem is, at this rate, it’s not even going to be worth selling…

        • Ducked

          Hey, there’s many antique collectors out there

      • Simon Stevens

        I’ve had a fun time on the Wii U thus far but the 3DS is definitely getting all the limelight right now, if my son didn’t love the Wii U so much, I’d probably be in the same boat, mostly because this supposed 2014 line up is somewhat missing and the gamepad is having issues right now, and for some reason, Nintendo won’t replace it, so….. bit stuck really because there not sold separately, I know my 3DS will get some attention and get games that turn the heads, eeeee Might just sell the dodgy one, keep the basic up in his room and buy a ps4 when it gets some games showing up for it, gamers shouldn’t have to accept such baron depressing times from the richest games company around.

        • Ducked

          You can buy a gamepad on eBay. But yeah I’d go with the PS4 if things don’t lighten up within the next 3-6 months. There’s some great 3rd party titles that the Wii U will probably never see like Star Wars Battlefront, Kingdom Hearts III, Destiny, etc. You can buy two 3DS’s cheaper than a Wii U, (original 3DS and 2DS). Why keep or support a console that isn’t being supported by it’s creators? Maybe things will go good for Wii U, but it seems unlikely even with Mario Kart…

          • Simon Stevens

            My 2ds was definitely the best Nintendo buy for me, £89 with animal crossing, my first Wii U was the basic at £249, my Wii U premium was £229, the last one I bought for my mum’s house was on fire sale £199, it still doesn’t feel worth it, not like the 3ds xl and 2ds, we’ve had so much fun on them, I think I’ll be shunning the Wii U from the living room and focusing on the ps4, still looking forward to the initial line up….. when the games finally arrive.

          • Ducked

            2DS was by far the best investment I put towards a system in a while. Very affordable and has a great library of games. I’m sure PS4 will get most of the spotlight for me as well, Wii U will be more for local multiplayer games.

          • Simon Stevens

            Well, my little one is never off his and he was excited all last year when the games were literally flying at us like some pissed off poltergeist, I would borrow his when he was sleeping and have a ball, it’s a lot of fun, though the 2DS is smaller, at that price with animal crossing, it’d be like saying no to a golden ticket at Willy Wonkas factory, I’ve enjoyed great games on the Wii U but after 9 months initially of nothing…. then a few games and nothing again, it’s fair to say I’m fed up and being stuck with the gamepad that has light bleeding through it right now with no replacement under a valid warranty, isn’t very consumer friendly, then I look at the ps4…. and I see the elder scrolls online and I look at the Wii U and Dragon Quest X is nowhere to be seen, I’m starting to see the light in my mind, good games sure, but the console, after test driving the ps4, The Wii U is junk

          • Maxwell Baumgarten

            The online for elder scrolls online is extremely expensive. 180$ a year here in the us and probably around 120£ a year

  • Kameron Grayson

    Bayonetta, I can’t even play that game due to the rating….

    Final game (sigh)

    I’m fine with it, they sometimes act so oblivious, though.

  • asdfg

    No Hyrule Warriors?

    • Kameron Grayson

      Eh….
      I’m not even sure how I feel about that anymore.

      • thedeciderU

        kind of seems like a filler game to me.

    • Ducked

      Nintendo needs to make a new Nintendo console and port it over to that system. (yeah bring on the hate and downvotes!)

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        That’s an upvote in my book.

        • Ducked

          Glad I’m not the only one that thinks it!

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I’m sure there are more of us. They’re either keeping their peace or afraid to say so in front of the crazy fanboys. I’m all for a brand new console with better marketing.

          • Ducked

            Yeah those fanboys like to pack a bite. That or just keep a dead console alive for another 4-5 years and throw away money

  • Miles “Tails” Prower

    Is the Direct any good?

    • Random12multi

      only missed 3 important things

      • Miles “Tails” Prower

        What would those 3 things be?

    • Leo

      It was a completely shit!

      • Miles “Tails” Prower

        Was it really that bad?o.o

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          It was okay, but nothing special.

        • ScrewAttack

          Most of it was 3DS. AGAIN. %*$@!!!

  • Random12multi

    Ehhh not to impressed with this direct

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      Same

  • Deadpool U

    Why does that kid have the Millennium Puzzle?

    • darkcreap

      Yes, correct. I thought it was a Tri Force, but it is that thing from Yugi-Oh

  • Alexander Kleinwechter

    I would say its a decent direct though, come on, they had X, bayonetta, new challanger, MArio kart 8,COme on, what do you people want
    EDIT: they also said its gonna be for games releasing this spring

    • Random12multi

      we want a direct… with PURE wiiu focus

    • Leo

      Yarn Yoshi hello? Hyrule Warriors hello? Majoras Mask hello? Metroid hello? Star Fox hello? FZero hello? I mean fucking HELLO NINTENDO!!!!

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        ^This

  • Black leg sanji

    This direct is a 5/10 in my book -_

    Bayonetta trailer was worth watching, but still no release date…

  • Daniel Gonzalez

    Welp….so much for release dates.

  • Kameron Grayson

    Fans make a petition for Majora’s Mask remake

    Remakes the Wind Waker

    WW is my favorite Zelda, but STILL. I haven’t played MM in years

    • David Horowitz

      This isn’t the first time. Just realize that nintendo can only do so much Zelda at once, and ask yourself, ANOTHER remake, or a NEW game???

  • Black leg sanji

    Omg no release date again

  • Mithiragi

    No release date on bayo2 yet…

    should have done 20 minutes of X

    Kind of disappointing :(

    • jjbredesen

      Yeah, when they started i was like fuck yeah this will be great, and then they show little mac and i shit my pants and go FUCK YEAH PURE EPICNESS!! and then when the 3DS news hit i just went silent…….. and then when X came, i was like this is nice, but there is only a couple mins left, where is the news?

      Sucked….

      What were you expecting?

      • ScrewAttack

        Something…..ANYTHING.

      • verymetal

        Really? Your not impressed with them showing 1980′s video games in 2014? Come on, using an 8 bit Zelda in an 8 bit Mario game pushes the limits of the Wii U horsepower to unparalleled proportions.

      • WiiUPS4

        Better than this crap..Glad i have the PS4

  • Will the3rd

    • Huzaifa

      There was little mac

    • Diaz

      That was the first clip…

    • Alexander Kleinwechter

      dude, they had it in the beginning, i mean seriously, people pay attention, to what just happend lol

    • DarkYoshi

      You got Little Mac. I don’t knoww what you’re complaining about?

  • Random12multi

    Little Mac… hyped me up but the 3DS just…

    • rp17

      Why didn’t they save that for the end?

  • Hipster Victor

    I missed it TT.TT i hate school days

    • Huzaifa

      I have no school :)

      • Hipster Victor

        Lucky Bastard lol xD

    • DarkYoshi

      You didn’t miss much. Some videos about Monoliths X’s gameplay should be up soon. Else, you’d been wasting your time on 3DS eShop titles

      • Hipster Victor

        Ohh i was afraid they’ll ruin it with eshop stuff. Okay

  • Guest

    should I sell my wii u now? or wait for X?

      No. Wii U is good.

      I >3 my N64 better, but still

      No.
      Don’t let Nintendo’s…bad…bad…bad marketing let…you down…

      yeah, so tell me , what are you gonna play on ps4 and xbox one, I stay with my mario kart 8, looks awsome to me

      • Guest

        ya i was just disappointed today.

        • Alexander Kleinwechter

          what did you want them to show us?

          • Guest

            more of x, zelda, little mac was a bad choice I think for SSB

          • Alexander Kleinwechter

            well, i agree more, of x, Though zelda isnt gonna be realesed in this spring, if you would pay attention, it says Spring 2014, Little mac was cool in my opnion :)

          • ScrewAttack

            I can see me adding little Mac to my fight roster.

    • ScrewAttack

      Good games will come…..eventually….

      Console makers need to stop releasing consoles before they have some proper flagship titles ready. I mean, isn’t the PS4 the only one to launch with a big first party title this gen (Killzone)?

  • ScrewAttack

    That was shit.

  • Justin Carlson

    Uh… no new retail Wii U games? Come on!

    Best direct I have seen so far since January 2013. So now we know that X and Bayonetta 2is coming on 2014. So in e3 they might announce one or two or three more games. I hope Hyrule Warriors just comes in 2014.

  • http://www.mpt-online.eu/ Sylux

    Screw live directs from now on, using a 150Mbits broadband connection and the freaking U stream lags like crazy on both WiiU and PC, I’ll look at it tomorrow evening on youtube, the worst ever live experience on any viudeo ever :( I hear them say X and poof, nothing seen and it pops to the next part all the time zzz

    • Santanata

      bcose your connection is not fiber, cable crap haha

      • http://www.mpt-online.eu/ Sylux

        err it is fiber cable has been for a few years now but it seems to be very bad for lots of people in the Netherlands what I read on the comment section

        • Santanata

          because is not pure fiber it’s “hybrid” fiber with coper/coax cable

          • http://www.mpt-online.eu/ Sylux

            Probably the reason I think dunno, just watched the last 10 minutes or so on youtube not live and it works fluently no lag, no delays, I really had to see the X part and the Bayonetta part, during the live stream I only heard the names but didn’t see squat, actually I did see the kid in bayonetta just before it froze and started to load again >__<

    • Deadpool U

      I’m using Wii U and it didn’t lag for me but I used Youtube’s livestream.

  • Kameron Grayson

    I know it! They’re hiding things from us! They’re waiting until E3 to drop the bomb!

    • Random12multi

      idk maybe

    • thedeciderU

      right now, my wii u is the bomb. a shitbomb. now where the fuck are the wiiu games? we knew about these a year ago.

    • Leo

      Probably. We are just tired of forever waiting for the next E3 to finally see the bomb. Nintendo definitely is working on something but the time is right now to hype the console and they completely fail in this direct.

    • DarkYoshi

      I guess its always good to be positive.. *sigh*
      E3 it shall be, no more waiting, I want my Smash, X and other new titles!

  • Black leg sanji

    Wow come on guys even as a hardcore nintendo fan you gotta admit this was underwhelming and i keep getting downvoted for asking for more info on wiiu games? Shouldnt u guys be asking for it too

    • GregoryTheRainMaker

      You should never have high expectations when Iwata is running Nintendo…never do it.

      • thedeciderU

        yeah, that’s a good point.

    • thedeciderU

      screw the downvoters in this regard

      • Black leg sanji

        Lol yea honestly enough is enough u cant defend this one

      • thedeciderU

        this was underwhelming, can’t deny that. gameplay for x and bayonetta was cool though.

    • Zombie_Andrew

      I told everyone it was going to be a bore fest, and it was

      • thedeciderU

        damn you and your accurate predictions.

    • 504HotBoy

      Yeah it was disappointing, especially knowing they have more games they could have shown, but for some odd reason choose not too. They don’t realize that there are people out there as well as fans, waiting to hear and know that more games are coming and want at least some teaser to build the hype/buzz and not leave us in the blind. I know they’re waiting for E3 to drop the big game announcements on us. But we’re not asking to see the new Miyamoto IP or the new Zelda yet. But show at least 2 unannounced games as well as updated info on Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem, Yarn Yoshi. They could have shown more of X, than what they showed. I was at least impressed with the Bayonetta 2 showing.

    • DragonSilths

      I really enjoyed the Direct. 7.5/10. Not as big as the January one last year but you just got your expectations WAY to high. That always happens.

  • Guest

    they should make a bomberman hd wii u

  • Simon Stevens

    So much disappointment, the feels :(

    • GregoryTheRainMaker

      It’s okay.

  • Zombie_Andrew

    I take nothing back about what I previously said about this Direct

  • Will the3rd

    Literally, I’m almost, almost crying :( Nintendo…. what are you doing? :’(

  • Mithiragi

    At least there were no please understands lol

    • Random12multi
      • Mithiragi

        But I guess you could say the whole thing was a BIG PLEASE UNDERSTAND LOL

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          More like a big PLEASE BE PATIENT.

          • Mithiragi

            Yeah man. I’m tired of this. I’m gonna get a PS4 in addition to my Wii U so I don’t have to deal with these droughts.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Might as well. We’re all in for a long, bumpy ride.

          • Mithiragi

            Lol there’s only one big game coming this Feb to the Wii U and that’s DK. Then MK8 in late May.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Two month gap. No real big game during those months. This is what happens when you have barely no third party or third party exclusives.

          • Mithiragi

            And that’s why I’m getting a PS4 lol

          • thedeciderU

            3 months, really. mk8 launches days before e3.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Talking about the two month gap of March and April.

          • nexxus6

            Yeah, that current PS4 lineup is really worth it.

          • Mithiragi

            At least they announced more upcoming games and have 3rd party support lol

          • nexxus6

            I never said they didn’t. However, as of right now their software lineup is nothing short than terrible.

          • Mithiragi

            The PS4 has third party games to sustain it as opposed to the Wii U. What happens when you beat DK? It’s gonna be 3 whole months before MK8 comes out after that.

            In regards to the direct, I think Nintendo should’ve shown at least a small trailer of Yarn Yoshi or SMT X FE to show that they haven’t abandoned those projects. They were announced over a year ago with X and Bayo2.

          • thedeciderU

            or a big ”please don’t sell your wiiu.”

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Too late, Iwata.

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      I was surprised! :)

      • thedeciderU

        that’s because they haven’t announced any games in a long time…

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          Indeed.

  • mizuluffy

    so basically not a single new wii u game was announced. awesome.

    • Thomas Vienna

      Only the announcement that Gameboy Advance games are coming to Wii U, that’s it.

      • Magnus Eriksson

        Yup, 1 year after they revealed it…

        • Thomas Vienna

          Yes, very true.

        • Jorge Aguirre

          Not only that but we STILL haven’t gotten the Miiverse app for Android like they said they would, and there’s still no word on N64 games coming to the eShop or if they’re going to add Gamecube games to Virtual Console.

  • Huzaifa

    I hope at least one or 2 more of these directs before e3

  • Random12multi

    We’ll who has a wiiu game with online servers *Example: Cod bo2, Need for speed* Since where all here might as we’ll try and get people to play with me

  • Rob Lucci

    Well I saw what I wanted to see, sorry for any suckers that had their expectations set so high.

    • Guest

      they showed X

      • Rob Lucci

        I wanted a Smash vid, Mario Golf release date, and Mario Kart release date. So I’m good.

  • Alexander Kleinwechter

    Are you people, actually that stupid, it says for games coming out spring 2014, do you really think nintendo is gonna announce a brand new game!!

    • Yen

      Even then, they did announce a few new games for 3DS.

    • DarkYoshi

      You never know. I’m not going to be surprised if Iwata uses his “please understand” move and push some of the games back.

    • Leo

      They definitely should! They should announce games even if that takes forever to release it! The console is in dire need of hype and Nintendo simply doesn’t understand that without MARKETING this system will be dead before they know it.

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      Knowing what is beyond 2014 is a good thing. It keeps fans interested and excited for months to come. At least with PS4, we know a good handful of what to expect in 2015, which is why sales for it are still good. We have no clue what is ahead for Wii U in 2015 besides maybe a few games. Yes, people have a right to complain, especially since they’ve invested their money in the console. ;P

      • ScrewAttack

        Exactly. Nobody invests in something they have no future assurance for.

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          I bought mine because my girlfriend kept nagging me about it so I gave in.The Direct was okay at best, but failed to show anything really new that would have hyped me up. It left much to be desired.

    • WiiUPS4

      First yes ..Where the hell are the games..Epic fail!

  • Kenshin0011

    The Wii U portion was just a tiny tidbit…and of that tidbit, it was nothing exhilarating. Basically we’re seeing the same games from the E3 direct and last January’s direct, just with updated gameplay and trailer….And then we STILL do not have release dates for X or Bayonetta 2 or Smash Bros, probably so they can push them back into 2015.

  • companyoflosers

    still no projected release for smash bros 4, still no word on zelda, still no projected date for X. those r the three things they could have done to make all the 3ds stuff at the beginning worth waiting through. we dont need to see more donkey kong tropical freeze. its releasing this month so its not high on anyone’s priority list. its a decent direct, im sure the frustration im feeling atm is just due to watching it live and they are first reactions and havnt been reflected on, but i honestly can say, i was expecting more from such a long direct.

    • Will the3rd

      Exactly my feelings.

  • Santanata

    GBA games on the Wii U is the only good news…

    • Leo

      I feel you.

    • Ducked

      Not really, it took them 13 months to give us more news on it…

    E3=All of nintendos best showings (:

  • Deadpool U

    I don’t see why you guys are mad this Direct was just 3DS focused this time I mean we can’t act like the 3DS isn’t important.

    • Random12multi

      where on WIIU daily for a reason

      • Deadpool U

        And it’s called a Nintendo direct not a Wii U direct we can’t just expect it to just be Wii U focused every time.

        • nexxus6

          That requires too much common sense for most on this website to understand.

    • GregoryTheRainMaker

      It’s not really because it’s already doing well…the Wii U isn’t which is why more focus should be put on it. *pokes*

    • ScrewAttack

      Most of the damn directs are 3DS focussed. It’s like they just don’t give a shit that the Wii U is suffering whilst they pump everything into the 3DS. FUCK THE 3DS.

  • Wiiluigi

    Those GBA games are weak!!!! I already have those from the ambassador program. With the exception of superstar saga but I have a hard copy of that too. I’m happy the 3DS is being entertained but seriously I need Wii U games!!!!

    • ScrewAttack

      Whilst I agree that the lack of more proper Wii U games is pathetic, I quite look forward to having Metroid Fusions and Super Star Saga on my console. Hope we get Zero Mission too. I LOVE Metroid.

      • Wiiluigi

        I love metroid too! But think about it the ambassador program is what made early 3DS adopters systems special. They could have chosen Zero Mission and even though I have a hard copy of that too I would have purchased it as well. It just makes my system feel less special kinda defeats the purpose of ambassador program. Oh well at least others will enjoy what we have now. I’m torn.

        • ScrewAttack

          The ambassador program isn’t a right to future exclusivity, feeling less special because now other people have the opportunity to pay for much-loved titles on a different platform is silly. Do you feel less special knowing the GBA game is still being passed around on the secondary market?
          This isn’t an ambassadors program, the point of which of course was to give you something nice to make up for the price decrease, not levy exclusivity on popular titles to make the platform more special.

  • wiimenonowiiu

    What did we just watch wii u down the hole wtf weres the wii u games theres more indie games then wii u games what happen to nintendo

  • GregoryTheRainMaker

    Like I said you shouldn’t have expected much, because Nintendo and Iwata especially realized they didn’t have their shit together until the end of January.

  • Random12multi

    wait LOL ign is down y?

  • gamer4life

    Honestly, I found that to be a great Nintendo Direct! They could have revealed a little more Wii U games, but I actually thought they did a good job.

  • Nintengoth

    Okies that was SOOO disappointing! I love Ninty and always will but that was lame. yes Little Mac was cool to see! and Mario Kart 8 stuff great! and new X footage awesome! but the rest was dull, please show more games like…
    Hyrule Warriors
    New Mario
    New Zelda
    Metroid
    F-Zero
    Starfox
    More WiiU eShop games!
    Ahhh! :P

    • Will the3rd

      You forgot “Paper” in between “New” and “Mario”.

  • WiiUPS4

    ALL THAT NEEDS TO BE SAID

  • Kenshin0011

    The Wii U portion was just a tiny tidbit…and of that tidbit, it was nothing exhilarating.

    Does anyone one else fking realize that basically we’re seeing the same Wii U games from the E3 direct and last January’s direct, just with updated gameplay and trailer….And then we STILL do not have release dates for X or Bayonetta 2 or Smash Bros, probably so they can push them back into 2015.

  • Alexander Kleinwechter

    As i said before, its for games that are gonna be relase for spring 2014, i really dont know why you people are bitching

    • Black leg sanji

      Dude you cant love nintendo that much man the direct was not what nintendo needed right now

      • Alexander Kleinwechter

        I didnt really expect much when i saw this direct, but that mario kart 8 trailer looked awsome, and little mac was a cool addition

        • Black leg sanji

          It was a good direct but they really needed to focus more on the wiiu

          • Alexander Kleinwechter

            I agree! Was too much on the 3DS

    • DarkYoshi

      As I said before, you never know. Some of these titles didn’t even say “Spring 2014″. Nintendo is Nintendo, please understand

      • Alexander Kleinwechter

        Then they are possibly gonna be relased spring then

        • DarkYoshi

          Yes. Possibly. Did I say otherwise? I’m just stating my opinion, I believe at least one of these games will be pushed back.

          • Alexander Kleinwechter

            yeah, but still, were you really expecting like zelda u or majoras mask remake, or what did you expect?

          • ScrewAttack

            I would’ve expected Nintendo to have pulled SOMETHING new out of their sleeves considering they’ve known sales have been bad since…oh….Summer 2013.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Sales dipped back down after the holidays.

  • Superstick98

    Good things about this direct: GBA VC release, MK8 release, Little Mac SSB4, Kirby TD release, aaaaaand they showed X. Anything else?

  • darkcreap

    What the hell? You remember the WiiU, Nintendo? Why don’t you pay it attention? Is it that only 3DS exists for you now?

  • Random12multi

    we’ll How is little Mac’s KO meter going to work?

  • gtosheex

    I dont get some of you, actually a lot of you. You complain for a direct then when it comes you complain again. It was better than nothing. So stop being spoiled fuckers. All i see on here is whining lately – and that’s just as bad as trolling. If anything, that got me even more hyped for all the wii u games.

    • Yen

      Thank you!

    • Rob Lucci

      Plus they said “Spring Releases” so I don’t get why they so upset when all of this was predictable.

    • ScrewAttack

      “spoiled fuckers” that happen to have invested a fair amount of cash in a platform they apparently don’t care much about.

      • gtosheex

        man you are so right, they don’t care about it at all. why even have nintendo directs if it’s going to disappoint their fans?

      • nexxus6

        No matter what Nintendo does, it won’t be good enough for some here. They could have announced a new Zelda, and you would get the “another Zelda??!?!?! Come on Nintendo, we want a Star Fox/Metroid/Kid Icarus/etc…” response. Nintendo could have announced that a new 1st party game was coming every month, and you would hear “only one game a month? Nintendo is so out of touch with today’s gamers”.

        • ScrewAttack

          Probably. Not from this guy though!

    • asdfg

      We’re not allowed to voice our disappointment now? More than half of the Direct was about shovelware stuff… I love Nintendo but come on. If the negative comments bother you so much just ignore them.

      • gtosheex

        if the 3ds/shovelware news bothers you so much then why don’t you just ignore that then?

        • asdfg

          Because I’ve invested money on the system and as a costumer I have every right to complain about the lack of good news/games.

          • gtosheex

            Sorry but I dont get the point of them telling us all the brand new games that won’t come out for another 2 years…? And even if they did you you are going to throw a hissy fit a year from now when they show a new trailer of the game and then you will say the same thing “ME WANT NEW GAME NEWS NOW, Y NINTENDO Y???!”

          • asdfg

            First of all I would never throw a hissy fit over new trailers of previously annouced games. It’s not about them I’m complaining, I’m actually grateful because without ‘em this ND would have sucked completely. I’m mad because Nintendo need to turn the tables and help the Wii U but they don’t seem to get it. Instead, they choose to focus on the 3DS (which is already doing well) and when they finally get to the Wii U, they mess up completely. Donkey Kong AGAIN? Still no release dates for X and Bayonetta? All we have until June is MK8 and DK? My god, they have all the means to hype their console up and fail miserably at it. Where’s the new Zelda? Metroid? Maybe a new Star Fox? Uhh, Miyamoto’s new IP? We are dying for some new info on those subjects but they just seem to ignore us. Even the most hardcore fans are getting disappointed at their latest annoucements (may I remind you of Cranky Kong at VGX last year?) so why even bother making NDs if all you’re gonna show is fking Mario Golf and friends? I’m pissed because I’ve spent quite a lot of money on my console (given that I live in Brazil and stuff here costs 4x it’s original price) and I want quality games now. Pissed because I love Nintendo and I want them to succeed and I know they can, but they aren’t doing anything! They have so much potential but are so out of touch with the gaming industry and their own fans. That’s why I’m mad. And I’ll complain all I want you liking it or not, ’cause I’m a fan not a fanboy.
            /end rant
            This turned out bigger than I expected sorry everyone

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            It’s cool. You’re entitled to your opinion. Which I agree with.

          • nexxus6

            Are you on the PS4 boards complaining about their lack of titles?

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Since they are new to the market, no. Wii U however, has been around for over a year now. So in my opinion, that makes it worse in their case. PS4 has at least 100 games planned for this year and many more coming in 2015. Can’t really say the same for Wii U. I do however, have complained about their lack of hard drive space, and poor battery life of the DS4 controller. Is there a hidden meaning behind your question?

          • nexxus6

            You have had a negative opinion about WiiU since it launched, which you are entitled to. However, don’t try to act like you treat both systems with the same unbiased approach.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            When I first began to post on this website, I was one of those who was supporting it early on. My opinion changed of it around the summer. So no, you are in fact wrong. I gave it a fair chance and now I’m expressing my complaints towards it. If PS4 goes down the same road this year, it’ll be the same story. You can call me biased if you like from what you appear to read from me, but you only get part of the story in this matter.

            I’m going to express myself the way I do it best, if that rubs people the wrong way, then they can simply move along. We’re all here to discuss Nintendo, positive or negative. That is all.

          • gtosheex

            I agree with you on a certain level. BUT I think at this point it would be MUCH smarter for them to reveal new games at E3. Wayyyy more publicity. The only people that watch Nintendo directs are… well, nintendo fans like you and I. Is it what we as fans absolutely want? No probably not. But you have to admit they do keep you wanting more which in a sense is a good business move. But it “isn’t” a good business move to just reveal stuff for the hell of it and say “coming 2016!” – when they obviously have stuff that we want coming even before then.

            I agree that Nintendo needs to be a bit more in touch with it’s fanbase – maybe complaining will be the answer to that, but I just don’t see the point complaining about a Nintendo Direct that gives us at least some kind of info. Which is better than none. I understand your frustration though, but at least we’ve got some confirmed great games coming this year.

          • asdfg

            Fair enough, I see your point. Well, E3 is coming and not all is lost. But if they mess up then I’ll flip a thousand tables.

            The thing that bugged me the most tho is how you and some other people here were acting like we’re all whiny ungrateful bitches who shouldn’t be complaining. I do agree our ‘bitching’ here won’t solve things but you gotta understand we’re frustrated and need to vent our thoughts somewhere.

          • Schultz38

            I agree with you entirely. I feel EXACTLY as you do.

          • nexxus6

            Want some cheese with your whine?

          • asdfg

            Yes please. The best one you have ok thnks

          • nexxus6

            Amen, brother. You speak the truth. Gamers are a spoiled breed. I don’t know why anyone was expecting some earth shattering announcement on this Nintendo Direct.

  • GregoryTheRainMaker

    Again when people say Nintendo is not predictable….it’s a lie…they are totally predictable. :)

  • Yen

    Wow people, nothing pleases you guys huh? That was a decent Nintendo direct with no bad news and all of you are still complaining? All people keep asking for is more info on MK8, X, Bayonetta, GBA Virtual Console. They gave you that today and you’re all still complaining. They said it was a direct mainly for Spring 2014 releases and 3DS focused.

    • GregoryTheRainMaker

      Well I like that are trying to make a positive out of the direct.

  • mizuluffy

    glad for the 3ds to have all this new (mostly shovelware) games. but seriously nintendo, do you not care about the wii u? it’s almost like they want it to not sell well.

  • Kenshin0011

    I like how they talk about all the tiny little details on how the eshop 3DS games work, but then we just get raw X footage with no commentary whatsoever of the mechanics besides, “Takahashi says the battle system is like Xenoblade Chronicles”….DUR DUR DUR!

  • Random12multi

    THE ONLY reason I’m pissed is because they focused on the 3DS TO MUCH.

    • rp17

      I think everyone wouldn’t be so mad if we didn’t have to wait through ONE MILLION random eShop games for 3DS. If the direct was shorter and had equal amounts of games for 3DS and Wii U, it probably would’ve seemed better

      • Random12multi

        EXACTLY

  • Will the3rd

    We complain because we already knew MK8 and DK, and that 3DS is cool. We complain because we wanted WiiU to not be as dead for so long and so soon. So until July we only have MK8 and DK… Wouldn’t you complain!?

    • Black leg sanji

      I dont get it as a wiiU owner how cam u mot complain its being pushed to the sidelines

    • Alexander Kleinwechter

      Mario kart 8 and donkey kong tropical freeze looks both awsome,I think im busy for a while with both those games

  • Alex Kelecich

    Should have figured. The hopes were too high guys! They are probably saving all the goods for E3 or another nintendo direct. SHEESH

    • DarkYoshi

      Hopes are always too high. The hype train went full speed and met a dead end. But they’re not finished, it’s already set full speed to E3

      • Alex Kelecich

        exactly

      • rp17

        yep

  • GregoryTheRainMaker

    At least we know Mario Kart 8 will come out on May 30th…that’s something good.

    • Alexander Kleinwechter

      ikr, thats only like 1 and a half month
      EDIT: sorry my bad, i tohught march 30, yeah, here comes the dislikes

      • sup3rnoah

        dude thats over 3 months…

        • Alexander Kleinwechter

          Yeah, sorry, i thought it stood 30 march, my bad, i deserve the dislikes lol

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            If you insist.

  • DarkYoshi

    I agree this Direct wasn’t much to brag of, but I got the info I wanted. Spare the big stuff for E3 :)

  • Superstick98

    You know what’d be awesome? If they made a Nintendo Direct that ALWAYS SHOWED RELEASE DATES. That would be epic. XD Lol. Glad we got to see more news and release dates, but I’m still kind of disappointed no release date is for Bayonetta 2. :/

    • DarkYoshi

      That would be awesome, but then they would have to be shown in a later direct, until they figure out the release date..

  • Black leg sanji

    Wasnt bayonetta 2 at the first wiiU showing? Why is it taking so long?

    • Alex Kelecich

      because its probably a huge game

  • Mithiragi

    It’s clear that Nintendo is focusing much more on the 3ds right now.

    • Rob Lucci

      Well I would too if that the only thing making money.

      • Mithiragi

        It’s cuz the fans aren’t buying the damn thing lol

      • Leo

        Exactly. From a business perspective it really makes sense. Its just sad but its the reality they have.

    • DarkYoshi

      The 3DS is great, don’t get me wrong, but focusing on the 3DS rather than their “brand new” console feels wrong. I know it’s rough for Nintendo, but please reward us Wii U owners

      • Mithiragi

        Yeah the 3ds is awesome. I’m ev training pokemon right now lol, but Wii U is dying rn. Well not dying, struggling.

        • DarkYoshi

          I disagree. The 3DS was “dying”. Thats what they thought. But then it took a 180 and went back on track, becoming the big seller for Nintendo.

          • Mithiragi

            Yeah, it’s just struggling. That’s why Nintendo needs to show us some good stuff. At least throw in a little trailer for Yarn Yoshi or FE X SMT.

          • DarkYoshi

            Yup. If Yarn’s is still alive. Maybe they forsake it for New Yoshi’s Island? No wait, its a Wii U title..

          • Mithiragi

            Maybe they’ll show it again at E3.

          • thedeciderU

            e3 2015? hahaa i hope it comes out this year.

          • Mithiragi

            e3 2014

        • Magnus Eriksson

          Wii U is not struggling or dying. Its dead. When did they last announce a new game? Hyrule Warriors wasnt really announced as it was just the work title. I dont think they have announced one game since E3.

          • Mithiragi

            Dr.Luigi LOL

          • Simon Stevens

            Doesn’t help how the system is unattractive to most people, I’ve literally had friends come over, they pointed at the gamepad and laughed at it, grown ups can be so cruel :(, time to ditch the dud and focus on games, personally, the gamepad was always a bad idea, for a variety of reasons, why couldn’t they just put that time and financial resource into something worthy, like…. I dunno, cutting edge graphics beyond anything ps4 and xb1 could deliver?, Iwata needs to go, we need a handsome young man to take us forward.

      • thedeciderU

        please understand, we have no idea what to do with this console.

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          Salvaging it for parts sounds like a good start.

          • thedeciderU

            damn it, the man has a point ^^^

    • Leo

      Yes. It seems that Nintendo is playing safe, i don’t blame them but its sad that the WiiU seems an afterthought now.

      • Mithiragi

        Yeah, they’re heading where the money lies.

  • Petri

    DKC in about a week, then nothing until MK 8 May 30th?

        that is irrelevant.. not everyone wants a dk game.. there should be more games in between

        • Alexander Kleinwechter

          lol xD ofc, i was just jk around, lol i will buy the game though but i agree

      • rp17

        I know think that would be hard… (I am too busy and haven’t beaten any Wii U game 100% yet so…) But it wouldn’t be hard for people with time. Besides I am not going to get DK until after Smash anyway

        • Alexander Kleinwechter

          oh ok,well i loved donkey kong country returns on the wii, it was really good, and im definetly getting this one

          • rp17

            DKC is amazing. But I only got so much money… Need to save for MK8 and Smash…

      Too much rage? Let the crybabies cry.

  • Kenshin0011

    The Wii U portion was just a tiny tidbit…and of that tidbit, it was nothing exhilarating.

    Does anyone one else fking realize that basically we’re seeing the same Wii U games from the E3 direct and last January’s direct, just with updated gameplay and trailer….And then we STILL do not have release dates for X or Bayonetta 2 or Smash Bros, probably so they can push them back into 2015.

    I also like how they talk about all the tiny little details on how the eshop 3DS games work, but then we just get raw X footage with no commentary whatsoever of the mechanics besides, “Takahashi says the battle system is like Xenoblade Chronicles”….DUR DUH DUR!

    The whole excuse that E3 being close is a reason to hold back is ridiculous seeing that Nintendo themselves have partially removed themselves from E3 to do things on their own. Even if Metroid/Star Fox are announced this summer, do you honestly think we’ll get them before 2017!? They won’t even give us release dates for games that we’ve known of for years.

    *Disclaimer* (I am a day one owner of 3DS/3DSXL/Wii U and there’s nothing wrong with constructive criticism)

    • Black leg sanji

      Ur going to get major downvotes but i agree

    • DarkYoshi

      I agree to some point. Nintendo could have done better, but please, go sit in their chair. Command the workers to make something appealing to both young and adults. Oh and please hurry, the Wii U owners are getting mad!

      • Kenshin0011

        …what? They are the best console makers and game creators on this planet! Is it too much to expect that we see a decent stream of compelling next gen software more than a whole year after its release?

        • DarkYoshi

          I’m just implying Nintendo is in a hard situation. Not THAT hard, the 3DS is selling like no other console. But making up for mistakes is hard. Yes, I’m also a bit mad at Nintendo. Why did you rush the Wii U, you weren’t prepared at all!

          • Kenshin0011

            The thing is, this is turning into more than just a hard situation, it’s turning into a catastrophe.

            To think we might not have a new next gen Nintendo IP until after the console’s been out over 2 years is devastating. For now, we have Mario Kart 8 and DK Freeze, both looking to be great games! Though here’s the key problem. They’re sequels and they’re nothing out of the ordinary or in your face to really push the Wii U. Not saying they shouldn’t be made, though they desperately need to be complemented with some compelling software that’s truly built for the Wii U and its gamepad.

    • The Clockwork Being

      YEp realized that too. Every direct is jus SSB4, MK8, X, Bayonetta and DK. Every single freakin time. Nothing on SMT X FE, Yarn Yoshi or the infamous unannounced games that Iwata said were coming in 2014. What did he consider Hyrule Warriors as more than one game.

  • thedeciderU

    wiiu should have launched 11.18.13. then i’d actually be excited for this news.

    • thedeciderU

      think about the launch window/2014. sm3dw, wwhd, dkc, mh3, w101, pikmin 3, mk8, sonic games, ssb, lc, b2, x, plus 3rd party titles, vc, indie games and more. why the hell didn’t they wait? it could have destroyed competition, no game drought, nintendo would have dominated.

      • thedeciderU

        no buyer’s remorse haha, not me personally, but man. seems like many people want to throw the wiiu in the woods.

  • Black leg sanji

    Is yarn yoshi cancelled? LmAo

        Do not make this into something big, careful, you might cause something big and dangerous

        • TheTruthIsTold

          Your mom saw something big and dangerous last night.

          • DarkYoshi

            Your head is big and dangerous. I’m sure your jokes and Nintendo hate fills it up.

      • TheTruthIsTold

        You babies are so immature maybe that’s the result of not playing any hardcore games! Lol.

        • DarkYoshi

          I.. I’m sorry.. I can’t hold it.. I’m lauging so hard!
          I know this is just another “truthteller” joke, but seriously, if the one writing this really meant it, wow. I’m going to give thumbs up for calling US immature.. GG Truthteller.

          • TheTruthIsTold

            I am Truthteller and I’ve come to show the truth behind nintendo’s propaganda.

          • DarkYoshi

            Yeah. Cool.

          • TheTruthIsTold

            You know what else is cool Watch Dogs too bad wii u will be discontinued when it’s delayed date comes up.

          • DarkYoshi

            Really? Wow.

          • TheTruthIsTold

            It is the truth that I bestow on to you to help the blind see.

          • DarkYoshi

            k.
            Do I look like I care..

          • WiiUPS4

            Well man ive seen the light and im selling mine and sticking with Sony..They just keep lying…:(

          • TheTruthIsTold

            You disappoint me I’m not a nintendo fan in any way but seriously you’re selling your because of one direct? You nintendo fans disappoint me you’re almost as fickle as sonic fanboys.

    • Magnus Eriksson

      Hi Truthteller. Welcome back. :)

      • rp17

        You think he would try to make his next account a little less obvious

        • DarkYoshi

          How are you so sure its truthteller? I mean, truthteller is widely known here, somebody could pretend to be him just for the lolz

          • rp17

            I know but why not pretend.

        • thedeciderU

          then where’s the fun in that?

      • TheTruthIsTold

        I am always here to give the blind sight and to allow everyone to know Nintendo’s propaganda!

    • thedeciderU

      hahahahaaaaa

  • MetroidZero

    The most exciting part of this ND was the Gameboy Advanced virtual console, imo. I love Metroid Fusion…hope I get to play Metroid Zero Mission too :)

  • sup3rnoah

    Whenever Iwata switches over to someone else i’m just like fuuuuuuck here goes a waste of prescious time on the nintendo direct that could be used for trying to sell their wii u. and i’m not really impressed with any of the 3ds titles anyways. only that moon chronicles caught my eye as something new. ah well, heres to e3!

    • DarkYoshi

      Agreed, Iwata’s usually behind the big news :D

  • Adrian Byrne

    yawnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!!!! time to trade in my wii u

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      I’m considering it.

      • Adrian Byrne

        thats kinda made my mind up for me nintendo know they are at breaking point and there is nothing new nor exciting here.

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          True story. If it don’t pick up soon, I’m gonna either trade it in for pre-orders for PS4.

    • DarkYoshi

      Trade in your Wii U for what? You could earn just a few bucks. I bet it’ll be worth its money when time comes. The Wii U is also a lot cheaper than the competition, so basically, its already worth it.

      • Adrian Byrne

        when the time comes? i bought it nov 2012 and am still waiting for that time, a zombie and 3d mario game can not justify my time nor interest anymore

        • DarkYoshi

          Then, Adrian. What is it you want?

          • Guest

            sadly nothing to m now i love nintendo and have played osme of the best games on there consoles but saldy there is no light at the end of the tunnel SSB & MK been there done that

          • DarkYoshi

            I can see that Nintendo hasn’t made a new franchise in a while. They usually continue on what they have. I might agree on MK being repetive pretty often, but IMO SSB has always brought something new and exciting. Adventure mode in SSBB gave the game a whole new debt of epic cutscenes which I watched countlessly. If the new SSB can do something new, something really working, then I’ll be truly happy to be a nintendo fan

  • Sheiky Baby

    I was somewhat disappointed with the direct because they didn’t introduce any new Wii U titles, but…. Were we really expecting any new ones on this? Fuck no. They’re gonna save it for the masses at E3. They got all those trailers with more footage out of the way. They’re gonna focus on selling THOSE games, and not neglect them because bloggers say so. If they showed anything new, you guys will be bitching next week about how it’s not getting any attention, and that it should have been saved for E3.

  • sup3rnoah

    Was also real annoyed with no Bayonetta 2 date.

  • Ducked

    Mario Golf World Tour and Kirby Triple Deluxe release on my Birthday! :D

  • rp17

    NINTENDO DIRECT RECAP: (to save people time)

    Little Mac in Brawl
    Koopalings in MK8 (Release date May 30)
    30 sec of random X footage
    30 mins of 3DS stuff

    Seriously don’t watch the whole direct. It’s just a waste of time.

    The two highlights of the video

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gmtrmAvL5aw

  • FutureFox

    About what I expected.

  • jhell

    3ds this 3ds that dam

    • TheTruthIsTold

      Of course nintendo shall stop making pathetic home consoles and only survive as a hand held company.

  • Will the3rd

    They said it was going to be about games for spring, no? Does that mean that X and Bayonetta are going to be released before July (SSB surely not, as they clearly said 2014, not spring)?

    • GregoryTheRainMaker

      Well X, SSB4, and Bayonetta 2 are some of Nintendo’s big games…it’s better for them to have those games playable in the Summer or Fall, because all of the other systems big exclusives are already coming out early that you would care about..if you exclude big third party games.

  • SamusPrime

    I love reading the reactions of spoiled gamers. They know new games will be coming out, but if they don’t see a trailer for a game that may not come out for another 18 months they freak out. Please grow up everybody.

    • TheTruthIsTold

      You’re asking nintendrones to grow up? Lol never happening.

      • DarkYoshi

        Sometimes I wish you never happened

        • ScrewAttack

          I bet his parents think the same.

      • SamusPrime

        We have heard so little of X and Bayonetta 2 over the past 12 months, so they give us, a little taste of that, but that isn’t good enough, so they have to find something else to complain about.
        I think society in general needs to grow up. The age of social media has turned everyone into sniveling little kids.

    • asdfg

      Apparently, if you don’t praise everything Nintendo do you’re a spoiled brat and a whiny bitch. Way to go!

  • Mario

    I know some of you dislike hearing 3DS news, but for those who don’t, awesome!!

    • DarkYoshi

      I can’t wait for Yoshi’s new Island. However, the timer is gone, which removes the games difficulty.. I kinda like hard games, so that sucks

  • William Martinez

    i think it was a great direct, yes they showed a lot of 3ds and not too much of Wii U but what they showed is what i was expecting…. you want them to show you everything before e3? chill out people, we got X, bayonetta 2, smash bros and mario kart 8 news…stop bitching.

    • SamusPrime

      Finally, a sane person. Thank you.

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        I wouldn’t call Pinhead a sane person.

        • William Martinez

          Angel for some people, devil to others.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I’m good with either. :)

    • TheTruthIsTold

      you can’t expect nintendo fanboys to grow up they’re too blinded by nintendo’s propaganda.

    • asdfg

      Stop bitching about our bitching

  • DragonSilths

    I’m surprised at how harsh a lot of you are. This Direct delivered exactly what they said it would. It was a good solid Direct. Not as huge as last January’s but it was a solid 7.5/10. Yes 3DS was about 60% of the focus but then again their are more 3DS games coming out before E3 then Wii U games. They showed off what they could for Wii U for the time frame they said they would. Other then a release month for Bayonetta 2 and X I don’t see how this Direct could have went any better. Sure maybe another tease of Fire Emblem X SMT, but if you thought Zelda or Metroid or something would have been in this Direct then your a fucking idiot.

    • DarkYoshi

      People were expecting a lot more than they should, but the hype train doesn’t have brakes. Also, they probably expected more as it’s a new year upon us. “First Direct of the year” sounds like something big and important, but it was mainly a review of last year, plus some nice additions. A good way to make us remember the games they announced earlier

      • ScrewAttack

        At this point, for me, the hype train doesn’t even have wheels.

        • DarkYoshi

          Well, it seems its going for E3 atm.

          • ScrewAttack

            But it’s just so dumb, E3 is a ways off! They should have given the people watching one surprise for the home console. One nice, new thing everyone would go nuts over, even if it’s a year away. Hyrule warriors got a lot of excitement out of people, and that’s barely a Nintendo game.

            Just one thing. They could’ve remade Starfox 64 in HD, shown their progress and people would’ve shat their pants.

      • DragonSilths

        On the 3DS side I was glad to get a release date for Kirby. On the Wii U side, that X trailer was badass, Bayonetta trailer was great, MK8 looks amazing. And Smash Bros with Little Mac was…meh. Yes it sucks their is a final 2 month game drought for Wii U for March and April but it is what it is.

    • William Martinez

      So true, they are bitching for stupid things…

  • WiiUPS4

    :(

    • Mithiragi

      Cheer up fusion.:)

      • DarkYoshi

        Nice nickname x3

        • Mithiragi

          Naw man, his pick is the rumored Nintendo Fusion jaja

          • bd-lt-dnkr

            who is jaja?

    • DarkYoshi

      People are complaining more now than at the VGX. Come on, just because you kept your hopes high doesn’t mean you have to be all depressed. We got lots of new stuff! Some eShop, but they all looked kind of fun (except for that baseball game, which looked like an attempt to create mini-transactions. Not good)

      • WiiUPS4

        I disagree I want to see more Wii U games and not more 3ds
        Wii U needs games and soon

  • Skelterz

    So let down i wish they would do seperate directs for wii u and 3ds they focus like 2/3 of the direct on fucking 3ds!

  • Ducked

    My Thoughts:

    Wii U:

    Gameboy Advance Virtual Console? About time….I guess we won’t hear about the DS Virtual console for another 6 months or so.
    Anticipation: 6/10

    Mario Kart 8 looks amazing! But May 30th? They really made it as late as possible…
    Anticipation: 9/10

    Monolith’s X is still being made? Good to see, the game looks freaking wonderful! Anticipation: 8/10

    Where’s Yarn Yoshi!? Still no word!

    Bayonetta 2 trailer stole the show, no release date? Seriously how long will this game take to release? I guess June/July at the earliest.
    Anticipation: 7/10

    Little Mac in Super Smash Bros? At first I thought we we’re getting a new Punch Out. But hey another Smash Bros character is always good. (but I’d sure like to see Knuckles, Shadow The Shadow Hedgehog, Yoshi, and Pac-Man soon).
    Anticipation: 9/10

    3DS:

    Mario Golf World Tour looks cool, I’ll probably buy it eventually since it’ll have online play.
    Anticipation: 7/10

    Kirby Triple Deluxe is my most anticipated 3DS game! Glad it releases on my birthday! :) Anticipation: 8/10

    Yoshi’s New Island has my interest in gameplay, but the graphics look so cruddy for a 3DS game. Still excited for it.
    Anticipation: 7/10

    As for the rest, I don’t really have much to comment on. Good Nintendo Direct, and it gave some releases for some big games. But no Metroid, Animal Crossing, F-Zero, or Star Fox isn’t surprising as much as the Wii U needs it. And again, NO YARN YOSHI!?! Why Nintendo why.

    Even though it was mostly about 3DS games, they did a decent job getting people excited for MK8, Bayonetta 2, and X. They certainly had plenty of 3DS games to show, a lot more than Wii U.

    • DarkYoshi

      Nice round-up :) You’re really anticipated for MK8, huh? Not many would’ve put it over X xP

      • Ducked

        Thanks, it’s one of the series I’m extremely addicted to on Nintendo systems. Everything about it looks good. I only have it over X because we’ve seen little of it.

  • Skelterz

    what the fuck is mk8 all about they just put in a bunch of the same thing WTF where is magikoopa? where the fuck king bobomb where the fuck is shadow mario where are all the inventive people at nintendo hiding oh yeah i forgot IN THE 3DS SECTION!!!!!
    Even if they announced they were going to announce something at E3 i’d be happy slightly but they didn’t even hint where are you now miyamoto hiding behind peaches dress that’s where you goon im so pissed offf!!!!

    • DarkYoshi

      Calm. I see you were happily following the hype train. Mario Kart 8 is.. repetive IMO but the character choice doesn’t really impact the gameplay.

      • Skelterz

        no it don’t it effects my respect for the imagination that is nintendo they may as well have added 6 goombas

        • DarkYoshi

          True, true. I get your point now

        • C4
          • Skelterz

            I wanted a different roster entirely.

          • C4

            Well, Bowser kids appeared in almost all of the last Mario platformer. From that point of view it made sense to add them, plus it allows for Koopaling themed crazy bowser castle-style tracks. Not sure about the other characters, I agree about Magikoopa though. More interesting then 8 same-ish looking Koopalings.

          • Skelterz

            truish.

  • Mario

    Wow! Donkey Kong Tropical freeze it’s looking pretty epic! Retro was not kidding with this game! It looks insanely fun!

    • DarkYoshi

      Yup. Unfortunately the VGX kinda destroyed everything, now everybody seems to be against it. It’s a wonderful platformer, looks exciting and hard! Just how I like it ;)

      • Mario

        AHHH!!! Why am I cursed with the fact that I can’t buy all these insane games!!!

  • DarkYoshi

    All in all, I hope those negative to the direct is finished complaining. It was an OK direct, now move on, we have lots to be anticipated for in 2014! Lets hope this is the year the Wii U will shine!

    • oontz

      Hope only gets you so far… Nintendo had a chance to prove the wiiu would shine this year and they failed again. There is nothing to get hyped about. For those still on the fence about a wiiu purchase, there isn’t much to tempt them away from the competition. For those who already own a wiiu (like myself) there isn’t much to keep us satisfied for the year.

      • Brandon

        Well the wii u definitely wasnt going to out shine xbox one or ps4, but they should do something to make the fans happy and attract more consumers.

        • oontz

          Agreed… and right now they aren’t.

  • JuleyJules

    Wow! Wish I was a 3DS gamer right about now! They sure do love their 3DS. Wii U? What is that? I think Nintendo is trying to remember if they have a home console or not. 25 minutes on 3DS games for a system that sells like crazy and 18 minutes on one that needs serious help. Way to go Nintendo.

  • Mario

    What did you know. Bowser brought his little helpers from the New super Mario bros. series to the race. On a side note, THAT GAME IS LOOKING SICK!! 0.0

  • X3Charlie

    I am disappointed.

    • oontz

      Exactly!!! My feelings as well.

  • Mario

    0.0 I have no words to describe X…

    • oontz

      I do.. “Unimpressed”

      • Mario

        I meant the opposite of that.

      • Fierce-Deity Link

        have you played xenoblade? if not you wouldn’t be saying that

  • Mario

    IS THAT A WOMAN!? OR A LIVING KILLING MACHINE!!?? 0.o

  • Roman

    I think it’s safe to say that the 3DS has not only had a big turn around, but is pretty much set for the next couple of years.

    Please understand:

    If they want a similar story with the Wii U they need to support it as much as possible: more games, more features, more rewards for early adopters, more evident use of the gamepad, MORE GAMES. How can Nintendo expect buyers to support the Wii U wholeheartedly when they give not even half, but quarter-ass support?

  • asdfg

    Yeah you guys so what if they’re almost ignoring their main console? Who cares about release dates anyway? We have Donkey Kong so omg stop being, like, ungrateful little fuckers you spoiled whiny fans!!1 why arent you praising nintendo get out of here dont complain! U arent real fans
    /sarcasm (in case someone didn’t get it)

    • oontz

      Are you serious?

      • asdfg

        Nope. Sarcasm.

        • oontz

          That’s what I thought but on this site you can never be 100% sure. That’s good sarcasm right there.

          • asdfg

            Yeah, written sarcasm is harder to get because you don’t have a voice tone to help you. I’ve edited my comment just in case. ;)

  • jhell

    x is awesome

    • oontz

      It looks like a second year ps3 title.

  • Mithiragi

  • Dylan Clark

    why are yall mad its a direct not E3 lol

  • oontz

    Nintendo needs to hire a new head of PR and Marketing is this the best they can do. They need to generate hype for their products and this is just not doing it.

  • jrob23

    This Direct proved that without a doubt, Nintendo was woefully unprepared for the Wii U. It was a rush job and they are in over their heads. I imagine this might be part of why 3rd parties abandoned it. They were worried about its prospects and wanted assurances from Nintendo that they would have their heavy hitters coming out for this in the first 12 months to support sales. They were told basically SM3DW, NSMBU, and Pikmin 3. They all laughed and went away, knowing what a joke that is. The fact they can’t even tease any new projects means there isn’t even a teasers worth of game developed. What a disaster. Iwata needs to be fired. They might not even get to 10 million sold by EOY 2014.
    I’d sell mine but there is no way I would get near what I paid so might as well hold onto it and play the games that tickle in over the next two years. The Wii U will NOT be around by 2016. No way no how

    • Guest

      Shut the fuck up you dumb piece of shit you’re all fucking dumbasses to decide Nintendo’s done after one direct you disgust you piece of garbage.

      • jrob23

        done after one direct? try 16 months you waste of space. and grow up with your pathetic insults. I would end you if I got a hold of you, be glad you are safe in cyberspace, holed up in your mom’s basement

          • nexxus6

            I never complained about getting poked fun of, so why would I need thicker skin? Let me post your words, ” I would end you if I got a hold of you, be glad you are safe in cyberspace”. Doesn’t sound like you are able to handle any ribbing. My saying you live in your mom’s attic demonstrates the hypocrisy in you saying someone is safe hiding behind their computer in their mom’s basement when you are doing the exact thing: issuing threats and insults from a computer.

          • jrob23

            are you done sticking up for your man? I see no other reason why you’d feel the need to defend someone who swears and insults someone for stating their opinions. I’m not hiding, I will gladly meet anyone anywhere assuming they are local to me. I live in Bellevue, WA. I work from home so I am available any time. I walk the walk. I don’t insult people for no reason and then disappear. Why do you care? Unless that’s actually your other account and you get your jollies off defending idiots.

            You a correct sir. donno why people are attacking you, you could use a little less agressive tone, but yeah its true.

            Btw if your knowledge, then well some of what you said before was correct, and some of it was not, so how about you discus stuff in a friendly tone?

          • TheTruthIsTold

            You’re right a less aggressive tone would do me good but I look over these comments and I get angry because people turn against Nintendo every time they over hype something for themselves and start acting like spoiled children when they don’t get something they were never promised.
            http://i.imgur.com/ywBPW7j.jpg

          • jjbredesen

            Thats a really great picture, 100% true, i understand 100% why you would get angry XD I guess most people thought they should only make Directs when they have huge annoucements, but before we had Nintendo Directs, there was E3, Gamescon, Comiccon and perhaps CES, you can’t exspect every major IP release within this year, because if they use F-zero, Metroid and Starfox now, then what will we have in 2016-2020?? nothing, so why people want those games now is beyond me, i would ofcourse love to have them now to, but in the long term it would be regreteble, they need to make some new IP’s and get some more dev teams, so they can make more games, because the reason a lot of people are angry is because there is no games except from DK:TF this spring, we have to wait for May untill anything else is released….

    All of you fucking disgust me me you’re all Nintendo fans one second then when you let your own expectations get too high you turn against and start wishing their demise
    You’re all fickle sheep that act children once they don’t get what they what they want .
    I’d like to you pieces of shit run a better company in short fuck all of you Nintendo needs a better and more loyal fan base than you losers.

    • nexxus6

      I agree with the general point of your comment.

    • RichM

      Having lived throught the N64/Gamecube decade, I know first hand what it means to be disappointed with Nintendo. However, I truely believe the Gamecube to be Nintendo’s best console of all time despite the numbers. At this point in the gamecubes life, we already had Mario Kart, Metroid, Mario Sunshine and a couple Zelda games. The reality is that we buy Nintendo Systems to play Nintendo games and Nintendo has given us very little to be happy about with the Wii U. The financial health of any company has a lot to do with what the fans think about it. It’s more than obvious we are upset because after going through the last year and 4 months, our console of choice has been bashed and literally kicked to the side by the media and financial analysts. We’re not asking for 20 new game announcements this minute, we want confirmation that the trust we put in Nintendo was not wasted. That all the hate we have taken from the XB1 and PS4 people wasn’t for nothing. We simply wanted an opportunity to say, “See, this is why we choose Nintendo. This is what you are going to miss out on!.” We want some brand pride. So, next time you want to start running your mouth off about Nintendo fans, take a minute to try to understand their frustrations before you slap the perverbial label on them with absolutely no inteligence.

    • asdfg

      If we praise absolutely everything they do we are Nintendrones, if we criticize them we’re brats… Make up your mind.

      • TheTruthIsTold

        What I’m saying is that people shouldn’t be angry at Nintendo for expecting things that weren’t promised in the first place.

  • wober2

    A little 3ds heavy… especially after the financial announcements of the wiiu last year. I kind of anticipated something big for the wiiu or at least lead with the wiiu.

    Oh and Rusty’s Real Baseball, or whatever it is called, looks like bottom of the barrel absolute crap, with a semi-interesting business model.

  • Brandon

    Just seeing on how the wii u is and what games are going to be coming out for it, I dont understand how it can be some people’s only or primary console.

    wii will release new game… called.. Wii Cook for U. Nintendo show you how to eat healthy to live long. great game for old people and children.

    so i waited to comment on this cause there was so much backlash on here that i didn’t feel like reading… seriously? i get that nintendo needs to step it up but ya’ll should have expected it…

    in any case… i found this direct ok… aside from little mac and x…

    any who, my thoughts.. this direct was what most of us expected and that was its problem… now, some people here said that it was supposed to be focused on spring 2014 stuff…

    well, that is true but remember the last direct? it was supposed to be for early releases as well and hyrule warriors was announced… so there is no excuse to now show some new wii u stuff.. …there wasn’t a new game announced… that’s what this direct lacked plus no new info… seriously? no actual release dates?

    the direct started off great.. little mac.. hype son.. hype… after that it was so much 3ds stuff.. and i get it.. but the wii u is bleeding.. the 3ds doesn’t need as much attention… the 3ds stuff should have been shortened way more

    onto the wii u stuff..

    the dk trailer was dope.. can’t front, but we don’t need more dk stuff… we know about it so that was a waste…

    mario kart .8….the koopalings [or whtever they are called] are the big reveal? rosalina being in the game was much more surprising.. who cares about little bowser turds? honestly.. bowser jr. is the only one that matters..

    on to x… though little game play.. i was really happy… it is dope that you have close range, long range and a mech to fight with in just one battle… a big step up from xenoblade… i am still hoping shulk is involved… that’s my bro ;p

    bayonetta 2.. dope trailer but nothing really new so nothing much to say.. we knew about the climax… so yeah….

    lastly, gb games finally appearing is dope as well…

    all in all, i expected this, but that was the problem.. nintendo should have had surprises… not the obvious…

    What I wanted from this Direct: New Wii U games
    What I got: Give Rusty a donut to get a discount off a game I never wanted.

    Great Job!

    Can I start a forum post called “Wii Screwed U”?

  • Marcos Parreira

    Actually, my thoughts are a little different. As all of you, I am tired of the same thing over and over and over. Wii U has a lot of great games, but I am already done with that. We need something NEW. So, Nintendo knows that. But they never worked with HD before, it’s hard to get used to it. What if… they are waiting to E3? Because they can’t just go on and talk about Zelda and Metroid if they will only be ready in 2015. So here is what I think: E3 will be WiiU’s last chance, and I hope Nintendo knows that, because if they do, we will have A LOT of games to play by the end of 2014.

    They’re prolly saving all their Wii U news for E3.

    Am tired of all the whining you do here. Wii U has great games and more good stuff is coming, if you just could wait a while for them to finish them first. Nintendo won’t release beta versions, they release quality. HD games aren’t created in few weeks. It takes time to do them well. So have patience or go cry your mama.

    I like the Direct, it showed a good number of games in development. The most important understanding that those who love and support Nintendo is we must go out and buy these games.

    I’m sick of Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze, they’ve been advertising it ever since E3 and not only that it was suppose to come out in November then it got delayed twice (they then changed it to December and then they changed it to February).

  • Jorge Aguirre

    I think Nintendo needs to make separate the 3DS Direct news from the Wii U news, we’re sick and tired of the 3DS games announcements, not only that but make the Directs shorter and take out unnecessary game announcements show more trailers, and new games.
    I thought the announcement of a new Steel Diver game was highly unnecessary, like who in they’re right mind is gonna be like “ooh a new Steel Diver game!” and then rush to the store and buy it?

    • FutureFox

      I wasn’t “oooh and ahhh”-ing but I did play it, liked it and bought it.

    Yea, I’m wondering about the lack of Wii U content in this video . If Nintendo improves on their Wii U franchise, then a lot of let-down customers will come back, satisfied with the change in Nintendo’s priorities.
