ok Iwata... My body and wallet are ready!

Hopefully it is something totally new and not something that has been leaked already. I'm probably chasing rainbows but I'm crossing my fingers for something completely out of left-field.

... I guess I'll know in about 40mins.

Directly from Nintendo, via UStream and (probably) Youtube.

I can't remember if they go live on Youtube or just upload it later but it's definitely live on Nintendos site and UStream.

(and it should be on >right now<)

Fingers crossed for Wii U Music! With a touch-screen it would actually work!
Oh, and maybe Zelda.

And come on, people. Let's expect something here, I want reasons to buy this console. Naow! Let's get super hyped.

I hope to God it's not some tripe like Wii U music! Nintendo need to unleash a beast of an announcement and fast! Virtual Console, a new IP and a Wii U version of one of the big hitters are needed!

"I hope to God it's not some triple like Wii U music"

"...and a Wii U version of one of the big hitters are needed"

Make up your mind :P
No, but imagine something like garage band. By Nintendo.

Also, I'd very much enjoy a new IP. Nintendo should generally get moving on making some new IPs.

@ 360ICE

I know there are millions of people out there who are in to music games but I'm not one of them! Casual games just don't do it for me. All Wii U owners have spent a pretty penny on their shiny new console and so far all we have is platform games that we could have played on the SNES, ZombiU and ports of old games. I haven't owned a Nintendo console for years and so far I'm far from impressed with the WiiU.

A new Mother game?!?!?!?!?

I know it's rumored, but I would pay so much money for that.
G-cis  +   584d ago
kinda hoping for a new IP though
--Onilink--  +   584d ago
well by now mother can be practically considered a new IP, same as with Kid Icarus
SuperSonic266  +   584d ago
in short

It will be casual with no third party support
G-cis  +   584d ago
and why you're here?

btw,how many minutes left untill the vid start?
MakiManPR  +   584d ago
18 mins

But Yeah I think it wont be any big surprise if any. I'm sure it will be just about Pikmin 3 and WiiFit U.

We all should really be posting in a thread instead of commenting on this article. I just made one on the N4G forums. I don't know if this link will work but it's in the Wii U section:
