Yup, Nintendo must be preparing some bombs for Fall and Winter.

Let's just hope Nintendo can actually deliver this time around ;)

Hopefully smash bros, and Mario kart. The only reason I bought the system. Same for wii and GameCube. I guess it says how good I think those games are.

Even though I know its just going to be a recap for the Spring/summer titles, which is nice by itself. It would be great if they give us a little tease at the end about some of the new games we are going to see in the next ND, that way we can already begin the hype for them

They always give some end tease game at the end of directs, monlith's X,DK 3ds, LOZ link to the past sequal, i just hope reggie is giving the end tease.

My body is ready is a understatement. This is what I been waiting for a while now.

Is it unusual that I'm most excited for what Nintendo might announce this year? Say what you will about their blunders with the 3DS and Wii-U, but they still know how to surprise. Last Nintendo Direct they announced Link to the Past 2...

K so Tomrrow's is for Wii U + 3DS Summer games

The Direct in June is for all the unknown Wii U games in the future.

I love the way Nintendo just surprises us the day before with their Direct announcements. Roll on E3!
nthstew  +   654d ago
good for Nintendo..Its never too late.
Crillvirus81  +   654d ago
Me too that's what I love about Nintendo directs they come out of no where lol
Neonridr  +   654d ago
Interested to see what's in store for it.
Nevers0ft  +   654d ago
I'm just expecting clarification of a few release dates and no major *new* info on upcoming games. The blurb on the Nintendo website pretty much confirms this: “We’re having a Nintendo Direct tomorrow to provide updates on upcoming summer Wii U and Nintendo 3DS games. …We’ll discuss future Wii U titles for fall and onward in a Nintendo Direct before the start of E3 2013.”

So tomorrow will just be to help us prepare our wallets for the summer. They're holding the big autumn/winter release news back for around E3.
MilkMan  +   654d ago
Got my fingers crossed. Hope they don't f@ck this up.
yugovega  +   654d ago
a lot of virtual console titles, re:revelations, game and wario, pikmin info, and super luigi u. hmm wonder what else they will show?

it would be great to get a wind waker hd release date. im hoping for September so I'll have the cash for all the holiday games too.

nah.. i dont think they will give WW info on this particular ND. This one seems more for Release Date clarification. Then another one in a week or 2 for the new game announcements.

If I had to guess, it will be footage/release dates/new info on Game & Wario, Resident Revelations, Wonderful 101, Pikmin 3 and maybe even WiiFitU. Plus 3DS games footage
XXXL  +   654d ago
Yarn Zelda!
Knight_Crawler  +   654d ago
Dont own a Wii U but would run to the store to purchase one if a Wii U Zelda is released this year.
quantae06  +   654d ago
Wind Waker HD Remake comes out this year..
Trago1337  +   654d ago
*Insert Bane Quote*
Trago1337  +   654d ago
Quick Prediction,

Wonderful 101 will get a release date in the summer.
yugovega  +   654d ago
it need to if they want it to succeed, but for some reason i'll be shocked if it gets released this year at all. if they truly are going to release Mario this year and Zelda and pikmin and rumors of Yoshi this holiday too they better it or it won't sell. but then again mariokart and retros games will be early next year too.
thesoftware730  +   654d ago
Only thing I can see that will be a surprise in this Direct is if they give Wonderful 101 a realease date.

Other than that I think it will just be video of all games we are already aware of. It would be nice if they show a teaser of anything new, but that is unlikley.

Maybe those "strong ties" they have with EA will surface somehow.
MasterCornholio  +   654d ago
Hopefully a trailer of Bayonetta 2 showing some gameplay.
GraveLord  +   654d ago
Another boring ND. Nothing new to announce, just old stuff that no one really cares about like Pikmin.
StanSmith  +   654d ago | Funny
Glad to hear that you got the flux capacitor functioning again.
PopRocks359  +   654d ago
This made me lol. Bubble up!
Nevers0ft  +   654d ago
Don't mock him, he managed to write all of that with his typing wand and didn't drool into the keyboard once!
Neonridr  +   654d ago
what a waste of your only bubble.
BlackWolf  +   654d ago
Cmon, you can try better!! You're not trolling hard enough. Or is that the best you can do?

Shnazzyone  +   654d ago
Can't wait, if it's anything like the 3ds one, They got something big to reveal.
Trago1337  +   654d ago
that's early in the morning :(

josephayal  +   654d ago
They better show Mario 3D
apollo06  +   654d ago
They won't until the other ND that will be right before E3.... It's coming, just not soon enough!
rickmodus  +   654d ago
maybe castlevania lord of shadows 2 coming to WiiU?? I would like that......I would like that a lot.
lilbroRx  +   654d ago
Considering how disappointing the one on the DS was, I have no more interest in the Lord of Shadows series.

Have you even played the first Lord of Shadows? It would be dumb to write off a series based of a bad 3DS game.
lilbroRx  +   654d ago
Yes, I have. I played the 360 version(I got to the ice giant battle). I never picked up again to play past that point.

The 3DS version was my hope that some semblance of the old Castlevnia's could still be found after being thoroughly disjointed, but no luck.

I'm done with that series.
Skate-AK  +   653d ago
You didn't even get into like a 4th of the game. To each their own though.
rickmodus  +   654d ago
final fantasy 6 HD remake welcome as well.
yugovega  +   654d ago
7 would be nice. if they wanted to make a splash and get attention at e3 that would do it.
Wolfbiker  +   654d ago
I think VI would be a bigger imapact than VII. both amazing but taking a 2D game to 3D, especially such a sacred and beloved game like VI would be a huge deal.

But thats up to Square, not Nintendo.
neogeo  +   654d ago
I want brand new games. No virtual console crap.
HexxedAvenger  +   654d ago
Awesome! Can't wait!
RTheRebel  +   654d ago
Damnet my bomb shelter isn't ready;)
gedden7  +   654d ago
So I'm excited but I know what's coming. So we will see games that are being released during the summer LIKE

Wii U
Bay 2
Pikmin 3
Game n Wario
W101
Wii Fit U (maybe)

3ds
IDK and IDC (i don't care)

But if Nintendo actually surprises me that will be big.. But I doubt it, but it will be good none the less!
TheSkullkid  +   654d ago
God is about to speak.
MNGamer-N  +   654d ago
Bring on the wallet destroying information.
rickmodus  +   654d ago
even though there aren't anything some people would like to see tomorrow, keep in mind...this is just one ND of a lot to come, so let us enjoy the ND that will be given to us. and maybe things we wanted to see will be in the next ND.
mcstorm  +   654d ago
Looking forward to this. Think its going to be another expensive 2nd half of the year for me again.
kirbyu  +   654d ago
YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYIIIIIIIIIIII IIIPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPIIIIIIIIIII IIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!
from the beach  +   654d ago
Great stuff, Nintendo Direct rocks. I expect to read a bunch of articles about "how come they didn't announce any new stuff?" tomorrow, though.
Wolfbiker  +   654d ago
Has everybody forgotten about the Wii U's last Nintendo Direct?

Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem
'X'
Windwaker HD

Their E3 one is going to be huge.

This one will just tide us over lol
Dlacy13g  +   654d ago
Do we know the actual number of unique viewers for Nintendo Directs? I am really wondering if this is as good a direction to go as Nintendo seems to think it is. I just can't help but think these Nintendo directs are only being seen by a small percentage of their core base and press.

If I had to guess, I would think Nintendo are counting on press to carry their marketing message for them to the masses but if you ask me the press in general doesn't seem willing to play ball. Instead we get less than enthusiastic reactions from the gaming press after most of these Nintendo Directs and that is the message rolling out to their audiences.
