A new Nintendo Direct presentation will be streamed tomorrow, Nintendo has announced. This one will be the first presentation of 2014.
OH MY GOD, ABOUT FREAKIN' TIME, NINTENDO.
Fingers crossed for Dragon Quest localization announcements. They've registered the trademarks, and a rough estimate places a release window in Q3 or Q4 2014 if localization began shortly after release in Japan.
I never played a DQ game but I could use some rpg and mmo action right about now...
Just out of curiosity: what kind of assburger/morons are disagreeing with this post? Really?
sony fan boys that's what.
Yea they needed to give us something. We need a good surprise in there though. I can't just be more of the same, or more of what we know. Please Take advantage of this Nintendo and get people excited again. * Hoping for Dragon Quest 7 & 11
awwww yeah! My body is ready!
Jesus Christ, it took you guys long enough! I had better hear more about monoliths new game this time. I'm sick of being forced to wait months for updates on games that Look that awesome...
We need X news badly. This is the game most people are waiting to hear about. Iwata better give us the goods.
nice falls on the day i literally have nothing to do :)
Yess!!!! *pumps fists in air*
hope we get some surprises!
Leggo. Keep your expectations in check peeps. Expect one or two bombs dropped, as well as updates on existing games. :)
Sounds about right. At the bare minimum, I expect: -Dragon Quest VII announced for 3DS. -Dragon Quest X announced for WiiU. -Hyrule Warriors for WiiU dated. -Smash Brothers for WiiU and 3DS dated. -Sonic Boom for WiiU. -Yarn Yoshi for WiiU. It's less likely, but we may also see news pertaining to: Monster Hunter Frontier G (WiiU) Monster Hunter 4 (3DS) Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem (WiiU) Bayonetta 2 (WiiU) Yarn Yoshi (WiiU) One Piece Unlimited Cruise (3DS) Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright (3DS) Devil Survivor 2 Break Record (3DS) Conception 2 (3DS) Beyond that, I feel like they're probably going to do something new with Fire Emblem soon. Awakening was a huge success on the 3DS, so they're probably working hard to pump out a sequel. Maybe we'll get lucky and they'll say something about it--or Zelda for WiiU, or Dragon Quest Monsters--but I doubt it.
Monster Hunter 4 was already confirmed for localization.
@Kenshin: your point? I said "news pertaining to," not "a localization announcement for." Release dates/windows are, in fact, news.
And Nintendo has failed to meet my bare minimum expectations. I wish I could say I'm surprised, but I'm not.
One does not expect bombs.
One or two bombs would be great and I am hoping for dates so I can pre-order X, Bayonetta, and Smash. Hell, I would take Gamecube titles on Eshop, while I am hoping. I know keep things in check.
A Dreamcast 2 would be sweet
Dreamcast on Virtual console would be more realistic. I would take either at this point lol
Wow why did I get Disliked, can i not dream :(
I would appreciate Power Stone on the wii U VC, actually...
sweet Pre-E3 Game Annoucements and Spring Plans
Come on, Smash Bros! I would love to see a release date.
Maybe that Indie game ONM has been talking about will be shown. (Fast Racing Neo? my guess.)
Indie games? Who the **** cares?
They are basically our third party devs at the moment. I would much rather hear about some new games tho.
Diddy reveal for smash bros, please. I am hoping for King K. Rool, however.
loll I read diddy as in p.diddy. imagine how you could bat the s**t out him
I knew it was coming... I was off by maybe one week.
Wait only games for the end of the spring... Hmmm So maybe 4-5 Wii U games and about 4-6 3ds games??
Yup, probably. With a decent amount of coverage for Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze as well, seeing how it's releasing soon.
Nice. It's been a while. I hope they used the time to unveil a plethora of information. Man am I wishing for a new Zelda for the Wii U, and some videos to go along with it.
Zelda would be great but Metroid would be amazing. Just an announcement would do and to let everyone know that Zelda will be at E3 will be great too.
I've lost a bit of faith in Ninty. I hope they announce something new. I'm on the verge of putting my wii u up for auction. I'm honestly not expecting anything. Most likely more news on Mario Kart and maybe a firm date on Smash. They'll announce a load of indie titles. I'm more keen to get a ps4 now. Alien Isolation, MGS V, Uncharted, all games that are known to exist. Nintendo hides away, leaving its consumer base in the dark with no idea if anything is happening. Tomorrow - we'll see if that trend breaks tradition. Damn it, I hope so.
Keep in mind that Alien Isolation, Uncharted, and MGS V are still a ways off. None of them may actually perform that great. The Wii U may give you some entertainment yet. But I whole-heartedly agree that the Nintendo keeps its fanbase in the dark. The Nintendo Directs are nice. But they could stand to build up some hype for their new releases.
I'm going to hold on a see what E3 brings. Between now and then I'll most likely purchase a PS4. To be honest, I just feel this Direct needs to reassure me that games are in development. With lack of TP's and huge game droughts it's a bit quiet. I'm hearing nothing but good things about the ps4 with tons of game announcements every week. It makes my purchase begrudged somewhat. I was a pretty solid Ninty fan, but this experience has completed sapped my confidence in purchasing a future console from them on day one. I really went out of my way to support them and I do feel like I've poured money down the drain. I'm using it to play VC content pretty much, which is fun, but defeats the point of purchasing the Big N's next gen console. I'll hold the line, and keep waiting. And waiting some more.
Most likely they won't really tell us anything new. It would be better if they just save up any big announcements for E3 when everyone's watching. If they announce stuff now, it'll lead to a disappointing E3. Plus nintendo games always get delayed. If they announce them to early it makes the wait worse. Look at pikmin 3. I do think though they must have something up there sleeves. They need to. This is for games in spring I doubt we'll get any more than that.
Don't give up yet. I have a PS4 but I still hope Ninty gives me something to really look forward to on the U. Peace.
This better be good. We are STARVING for good news. No more Chibi-Robo BS, drop the Nuke, Nintendo. Let us have it.
At which time will this be broadcast-ed in NA? Super stoked for this! ^_^
At 2 p.m. PT/5 p.m. ET.
Awesome!! It was needed already. I was checking today the ND page, just to see if anything new had shown up. Guess I checked too early! It will be nice to see what Nintendo will bring up this time.
I won't get my hopes up but you have 3 big games we need information on...that were thought to be coming soon. Seriously been a long silence on X and how about B2 and Smash release dates...like soon. Enough indie, 3DS for awhile.
maybe surprise snes remix release like nes remix last direct and more on ds games on wii u
I better see some serious announcements... or it's your head Iwata-san!!
A Nintendo Direct on the day Tropical Freeze gets released in Japan? Yep, they're revealing a Donkey Kong character for Smash Bros. 4. I'm confirming it right now.
About time. The time on this one is interesting, though. Most Directs have been in the 7-9 AM range where I live. Now it'll be 4 PM. Probably means nothing, but it did stand out to me. At any rate, It'll be interesting. Nintendo could really use some positive press right now. I hope we see that one big announcement.
really they need to focuse on the wiiU rite now because its all doom and gloom for the console 3ds is alright it has the games hell everyday there is a new game for 3ds it seems like i wish the wiiU could fallow suite
i hope they dont spend 20 minutes on DK they already talked about it so much... we need to see new games.
Primarily, I only care about X and Smash. Also SMTxFE, but methinks this is a 2015 title. (I'd rather 2014 but whatever.) We can pretty much expect them to tell us about everything up to E3, so this is a big Direct--or at least, as big as one can get pre-E3.
X, Smash, Mario Kart and Bayonetta 2 for me. Although NEW game announcements would be nice.
Yeah Bayo 2 could be interesting too. NEW announcements? Personally I think Nintendo's out of tricks, or at least pre-E3 tricks, but who knows? I'd prefer to be wrong.
Come on N64 Virtual console games in March... Come on baby.
If no bombs are dropped or no star fox, Zelda or metroid think I might sell my Wii U as I know someone selling a brand new ps4 with killzone for £260. Nintendo please make this Direct worthit and pull out all the stops or it's bye bye Wii U for me.
it is rumoured that X might make an appearance in tomorrows direct http://nintendoeverything.c...
there are already rumours of X being shown in tomorrows direct XD http://nintendoeverything.c...
I Said K!
STARFOX! FZERO! ZELDA! SEGA-MERGER! None of the Above... ...I am excited, nonetheless.
I'm hoping to see news on X, Bayonetta 2, Smash, Mario Kart, and then a surprise or two, like unannounced games! A Wii U game from Next Level Games and maybe the announcement of another collaboration of Nintendo letting a third party use it's characters for an exclusive game.
New Metroid New Star Fox Zelda U Gamecube on Virtual Console DS support on Wii U New Advance Wars on 3DS Come on Nintendo. No more news on DK Tropical Freeze. We know it's going to be a good game. We want jaw-droppers.
Don't diss the dreamcast was well ahead of its time, where do you think Microsoft got the idea for Xbox live ;)
I keep expectations low, so I'm won't be truly disappointed.
I think I know the Direct content already. Tropical Freeze, a little bit Sonic Boom, Mii's new capabilities and thats all. I hope I am wrong....
Announce Snake for Smash and I'll adopt an African baby
