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.

Mii 2 man! I hope they GIVE me a sealed deal on why i should buy a Wii U right now! Even though i want one, hehe.

ElectricKaibutsu1943d ago

Shoot, my expectations are way too high. Must... regain... negative... expectations. But what if it's Zelda? Ah, dammit.

Could anyone tell me where to watch it please?

Edit: Nvm found it. For anyone else in the same boat, you can watch it at

Nevers0ft1943d ago (Edited 1943d ago )

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<)

lilbroRx1943d ago

thaimasker1943d ago

Yes it was...It felt like a Mini E3 lol.

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!

360ICE1943d ago

"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.

Old McGroin1943d ago

@ 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.

WeAreLegion1943d ago

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

I know it's rumored, but I would pay so much money for that.

G-cis1943d ago

kinda hoping for a new IP though

--Onilink--1943d ago

well by now mother can be practically considered a new IP, same as with Kid Icarus

SuperSonic2661943d ago

in short

It will be casual with no third party support

G-cis1943d ago

and why you're here?

btw,how many minutes left untill the vid start?

MakiManPR1943d 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.
