EDIT: According to a few sources, the news is Mario Kart 8 related. IGN’s Jose Otero had this to say on a Neogaf forum: “Sorry about that everyone. It’s just Mario Kart 8 you guys. Hype should still be justified. That is all.” That’s a promising statement, saying that the hype is justified. We’ll keep you updated as this story develops.
In a very cryptic tweet, IGN hinted that there would be big news for Nintendo fans later tonight. What this means, we can’t be sure. Here is the tweet in its entirety:
While we’re not quite sure what this means yet, there are plenty of assumptions we can make. It could be an incoming Nintendo Direct. Maybe an announcement of a new Nintendo Land game. Maybe they’ve decided to release Smash Brothers tomorrow! Either way, we at WiiUDaily will keep you updated as best we can, and will report to you as soon as we hear anything.
What do you think this tweet is about? IGN has plenty of resources and contacts in order to obtain their information, so it’s a safe bet that this is something significant. Let’s hear what you have to think below!
