Prediction: Nintendo Direct Will Set Release Dates for Q2, Show Wind Waker Wii U and Zelda 3DS

GenGAME writes: "After last month’s Wii U Direct, I think we’re all done with big Wii U announcements for awhile. And frankly, I’m fine with that – Nintendo needs to save something big for E3. And that’s fine – E3 should be Wii U’s moment to shine, to prove itself as a serious competitor for the next generation.

"That’s why I think that, if anything, the Nintendo Direct set for tomorrow, February 14 is going to feature mostly confirmations related to titles we’ve already seen... because it’s time to figure out when all those “launch window” games are actually coming out.

"But I think Nintendo would be remiss not to feature some kind of major announcement or serious news at the presentation..." (3DS, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Pikmin 3, The Legend of Zelda, The Legend Of Zelda: The Wind Waker, Wii U, Yarn Yoshi)

I hope it is a reveal of further 3rd Party Support and maybe Collaborations.

>I would also love to see Iwata address in some way, the report that dissed the GPU and CPU.
(today their has been a little push back with the Snipper and Need For Speed Story).

BUT:

My dream of course would always be for an Eternal Darkness 2 announcement. Keep dreaming? I will... then again maybe I am always dreaming... hehehehhehhehehhe!

You have great taste in gaming. Now I want to play the original on my Wii. That was one of my fav games. I loved purposelessly draining my sanity to see all the different effects.

You can dream all you want
but the sad sad truth is
Silicon Knights died long ago; Too Human killed them

Their company still exist as a shell but only has 12 employees

The only way is for Big N to buy the rights to ED series, they already own the Sanity mechanic and round up the few devs they can.

even then that would be a long shot, I mean they'd have to make a studio just for the game because if you think about it, what inside studio currently in nintendo can do something like ED2.

Such a shame really...ED was one of if not the greatest gamecube games ever.
I was so looking forward to know what happens with mantorok

Ouch Tatsumaki
Way to wake me up with a Shot-Gun...LOL.

@Zeon "Well Said"

&

@ Tatsumaki "Helpful" (for the info.)
PS I know we both hope you are wrong.
Tewi-Inaba  +   674d ago
sadly it seems everything Microsoft touches that has to do with nintendo dies a slow brutal death......
CouldHaveYelledUiiW  +   674d ago
True,
I wonder why that is?

Anyway,
At this point I would work as a Intern to help fund the game development, because it's a horrible waste of an original franchise.
CouldHaveYelledUiiW  +   674d ago
Hey just a thought, not a challenge-

Do you think that the 12 people could pull-off an HD upgrade of ED1 ?
Tewi-Inaba  +   674d ago
Well, the thing is the last time I checked them wa like 2011.
Just checked again and now they're "fewer than 5"

Like I said unless Big N themselves do something nothing is ever coming out of that studio.

Too bad, they do real good ports too, MGS:Twin Snakes was made by them and it was real good
Erimgard  +   674d ago
This would be ideal for me. The other two titles I'm looking forward to is the secret project by Retro Studios and a new IP from Shigeru Miyamoto.
Venox2008  +   674d ago
I would like to see secret 3DS project from Treasure, then Retro, then a gameplay from than Pirate game for 3DS and Rodea: sky soldier release date

da fuq?
ZeekQuattro  +   674d ago
I hope it focuses on 3rd party support especially after some of the rumors I read today about games such as Watch Dogs being on the Wii U.
ScubaSteve1  +   674d ago
dont get your hope guys
http://nintendoeverything.c...

it looks like fire emblem, luigi's mansion, lego undercover city and animal crossing thats it for 3ds
WeAreLegion  +   674d ago
Unless they announce Earthbound HD, I think something else has the focus of gamers right now.
MegaLagann  +   674d ago
What I think we can expect

- Release dates for games like Animal Crossing 3DS, Game & Wario, Wii Fit U, The Wonderful 101 & Pikmin 3
- Show off third party Wii U & 3DS games
- eShop announcements
- Miiverse announcements
- New trailers for third & first party Wii U & 3DS games
- Possibly some news about what they'll show at E3 and or GDC

It won't be the big blowout last month's direct was. The main thing I think we'll get out of this is release dates.
metroidfusion2  +   674d ago
Damn that's perrfect more then what I was gonna say ha lol
Kamikaze135  +   674d ago
Dragon Quest VII
Dragon Quest Monster
Bravely Default

I hope at least one of those gets announced for localization.
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   674d ago
I HOPE to god its a brand new Zelda I would much rather see that than majoras mask remake. Hell even Link to the past remake or sequel would be better. But I would much rather play something completely new.
Theyellowflash30  +   674d ago
We'll see some third party announcements for sure. I'm hoping we get a Watch Dogs or Rainbow Six Patriots confirmation.
bullymangLer  +   674d ago
hoh yea! . we still gotta see what zelda 3ds gonna look like . ha haa .what a life !
AWBrawler  +   674d ago
What time is it scheduled for
paul1974  +   674d ago
I checked nintendo UK they have live stream at 2pm UK time but its 3DS only??? I can't see how people have presumed it's Wii U too! think you will have to wait a little longer for more wii u info.

I hope however that maybe they will spare a few minutes to talk about the rayman legends issue and advise on release dates of titles they have announced! Maybe E3 is the best time for Nintendo to blow us out of the water
